Obagi Skincare

Obagi is a professional skin care line of medical-grade products which can only be sold by medical professionals. In choosing to use the Obagi range via Magari Clinics, you ensure yourself the support of a qualified nurse to assess you and guide you through your journey.

Obagi has been at the forefront of skin care for over 30 years and offers a vast array of products to suit individual needs. In the UK, many of the products require prescription and therefore cannot be bought, by law, online. Please be careful if you have purchased any Obagi products via the internet.

From treatments for acne, hyperpigmentation and ageing skin to those without problematic skin who just want a simple, daily skin care routine, Holly will carry out a consultation where you can discuss your needs/concerns and a plan can be tailored to you. This will also need to take your medical history in to consideration depending on the products required.

Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE

Blue Peel RADIANCE is an addition to the Obagi medical range. It contains a unique blend of salicylic, Glycolic and Lactic acid to provide a gentle but effective peel, resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin immediately after just one use. Salicylic acid based peels are used to improve patient outcomes for a range of skin conditions, including acne, photo damage and melasma. Blue Peel RADIANCE effectively exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed and radiant.
The Radiance Peel is 2.7ph and 20% Salicylic with a blend of lactic and glycolic, and attached is the patient brochure should you need it.

Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE can improve your skins look, texture, and feel in a matter of minutes. Superficial exfoliation, with little to no downtime. Provides instant radiance, tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin after just 1 treatment although a series of 4 to 6 peels provides best overall results. It is particularly effective, in the treatment of photo damage, and results in an overall improvement in the texture and tone. It may also be beneficial in the treatment of darker skin pigmentary changes.

A test application of the peel solution can be applied on a small area of the skin before proceeding to a large area. Secure the hair away from the face with a headband. Remove all traces of make-up with Nu Derm Gentle Cleanser, ensure the patient is comfortable in a reclining position, the lips and corners of the eyes and nose are then covered with a small amount of petroleum jelly or a moisturiser to protect the sensitive areas. A piece of gauze can be placed over each eye if required.

Patients should avoid use of the following products and procedures on the area to be treated for 5-7 days prior to the peel:

  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Waxing or depilatory creams
  • Electrolysis
  • Microdermabrasion

Certain products may increase skin sensitivity and/or cause a stronger reaction to the peel, avoid the use of the following products for the 3 days prior to the peel:

  • Topical retinoids and tretinoin (including Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Refissa)
  • Other topical acids or exfoliants that may be drying or irritating to the skin (such as alpha hydroxyl acids [AHAs], beta hydroxyl acids [BHAs], exfoliating masks, retinol, benzoyl peroxide)

CAUTION: Patients who have recently had any medical aesthetic facial treatments or procedures (laser, microdermabrasion, etc) should wait until all sensitivity has subsided. Avoid BHA-ingredients on infants or children.

Mild peeling and redness is normal. Please consult with your physician prior to returning to your normal skin care regime (usually 5-7 days after application of Blue Peel RADIANCE)
