Catherine, our Obagi Patient Ambassador, starts her Obagi journey with a Blue Radiance Peel, and she tells us about her experience:
The next step in my journey – the first actual treatment – was to have an Obagi Blue Radiance Peel. This would remove any dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and provide a receptive base for the Nu-Derm system that would follow over the next 6 weeks.
Therapist, Amber, prepared my skin with a lovely foamy wash then applied the Blue Radiance peel in 3 stages. It was a bit like having a very strong toner applied, except this one made my face hot and tingly. At each stage, Amber eased the tingly feeling with ‘tapotement’ (gentle tapping movements with her fingertips). She asked me – on a scale of 1-10 – how my face felt. Each time, I felt a little more intensity.
Once this was done, Amber completed the process by applying a number of products from the Obagi Skin range. This included SPF – vitally important and a part of my routine going forward.
At this stage, my skin felt a little pink but this soon calmed down. Within an hour our so, things looked fine and my skin looked and felt fresh and clean.
The big day comes tomorrow when I start the Obagi Nu-Derm system properly, so I’ll check in with you again once I’m up and running!
