Skin peels are designed to eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, skin blemishes and pigmentation and are especially good for treating acne and reducing acne scarring. Skin peels very effectively defy skin ageing and maintain a youthful, blemish free appearance.
Here at Aspire, we use the Obagi Blue Radiance peel, a non-invasive, gentle chemical facial peel.
How skin peel treatments work
Our skin peel treatments are a course of six treatments that can be done in your lunchtime. They are gentle but an effective way of getting skin in tip-top shape. A skin peel is ideal if you’re preparing for a big event such as wedding or party, or trying to recover after the skin-damaging effects of a holiday in the sun and sea.

Benefits of the Obagi Blue Radiance peel
The Obagi Blue Radiance peel has a very low level of salicylic acid. Designed to be used in a course of six ‘low-burn’ treatments, it’s perfect if you can’t accommodate the week of downtime associated with one-off deeper peels. It improves the general texture and tone of skin and helps with photo damage, acne scarring, and signs of sun damage.
What to expect
Your face will be cleansed of all make-up and a protective barrier of gel to the most sensitive parts of your face such as the corners of your mouth and eyes will be applied. The the first layer of the peel solution is sponged on.
Patients experience a hot and tingly sensation for about 30 seconds to a minute after the solution is applied. A second layer of the solution is then applied and left on the skin for up to 10 minutes.
Any remnants of the solution is then sponged off the skin and a high factor sun block is applied at the end of the treatment.
After your treatment
Post treatment, the skin can appear red for up to 24-48 hours and may start flaking or peeling.
Optimal results are attained from a course of six peels at four week intervals. On completion of the course we recommend a maintenance treatment every six months to keep your skin in great condition. Clients find this procedure comfortable and can return to normal daily activity immediately afterwards.
