HISTORY

The medicinal use of salicylic acid was first documented by the ancient Greeks in about 500 BC. In ancient times, salicylic acid was used primarily as a pain reliever and to reduce fever. Native Americans are known to have widely used salicylic acid, in the form of willow bark, to treat pain, fever and inflammation.

The active extract of the bark, called salicin, after the Latin name for the white willow (Salix alba), was isolated and named by the German chemist Johann Andreas Buchner in 1828. In 1829, French chemist Henri LaRoux perfected the extraction technique. In 1853, another French chemist Charles Gerhardt produced acetylsalicylic acid for the first time, though it wasn’t marketed until the Bayer company patented the formula in 1899.

Today, salicylic acid has become a popular treatment for acne, and is used in chemical peels to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and sun damage.

process

Your practitioner will firstly carry out a consultation with you to find out your skin concerns and goals. Your skin is thoroughly cleansed before the active solution is applied. A protective barrier is applied to the most sensitive parts of your face such as the corners of your mouth, nose and eyes. Your practitioner will apply the first layer of acid solution to your skin. The number of layers and timing will vary for each individual. The peel solution will gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, smoothing the skin’s texture and boosting cell rejuvenation. At this point, you may feel a light prickly sensation and heat. Your practitioner will remove the solution before applying protection to your skin. The whole process will take 30 minutes.

The active ingredient in this peel is salicylic acid which is an oil-soluble ingredient that penetrates deep into the pores, to clear them out and improve the skin’s overall complexion.

This peel is effective, especially at treating acne, because it tackles the problem at its origin. By starving the acne of its fuel, this peel removes comedones, deep-cleanses pores and provides an anti-bacterial action. The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance works by decongesting, brightening and smoothing the skin’s texture.

Depending on your skin condition and concerns, we recommend that you prepare your skin for two to six weeks prior to your treatment to ensure you experience minimal downtime and to achieve the best long-lasting results. It’s important that your skin is in good health prior to this peel, so you’ll be advised to use homecare products to strengthen, hydrate and protect the skin’s barrier before starting your treatments.

For those with no concerns, but wishing to have this treatment to deeply exfoliate and refresh their skin, we advise you stop any active ingredients for 7 days prior to the treatment.

Most clients find the treatment very comfortable, but some clients say that they experience a mild prickly sensation for a couple of minutes as the active ingredients start to work. You may experience some heat sensation immediately after the peel is applied, but this will usually last only for few seconds.

There is no visible peeling or irritation associated with this treatment. That means you can get back to your usual routine. You may experience slight dryness and peeling a couple of days after the treatment.

The treatment is not recommended to be done before going away on a sunny holiday as the skin is more photo-sensitive and prone to sun-damage.

You must avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks after the treatment and use SPF daily. Avoid sauna, steaming, swimming and gym for up to 72 hours after treatment. Avoid using acid-based products for up to 1 week after treatment. Mineral make up can be applied straight after, if needed.

A course of 4-6 treatments is reccomended, spaced every 2 weeks apart, but this will depend on each individual. Once you have finished a course of treatments, a maintenance treatment once a month is recommended to maintain results.
