Peels

Obagi, Enerpeel

People of all skin types develop sun damaged and pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, hands and legs.  Sun damage occurs from repeated long-term exposure to UVB and UVA, resulting in brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles.

In Celevenus, other than using laser treatments, Dr Chau will also combine laser treatments with Chemical peels.  We are using 3 types of peels to treat pigments, sun damage and other skin conditions.

Skin peel means to remove the top layers of the skin through a peeling solution, which prompts the skin to peel naturally and remove dead skin cells. The type of peel used will vary from one patient to another based on one’s skin condition. Improvement is noticeable after each session.

Skin peel can be an excellent treatment for some patients.

OBAGI Blue Peel Radiance

Obagi Blue Peel RadianceThe Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is a clinic grade skin peel treatment performed by a qualified member of the team.

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is the answer for people who have no time for peeling. It’s quick, easy and amazing. As with most peels, it contains Salicylic Acid. It also has a blend of lactic and glycolic acids and it has extra calming agents like Willow Bark and Licorice Root, to help soothe your skin.

This peel is a minimally invasive treatment. It increases cell turnover, removes dead skin cells and gives the skin a healthy glow.  Ideal treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, laxity of skin, loss of firmness, severe pigmentation, adult acne and acne scarring to achieve visible, significant results.

The Obagi Blue Skin Peel can be applied to the face, neck, chest, hands, back, arms and legs and is FDA approved (US Food and Drug Administration).

Treatment

Prior to the treatment, your skin will be fully prepared using an Obagi cleanser and preparation solution. The acid-based peel solution will then be applied and left on your skin for up to 10 minutes, this may vary from individual to individual. Post treatment, Obagi products will be applied to hydrate, soothe and protect the skin.

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is safe and has no permanent side effects. As part of the healing process, you may experience a few side effects and that is only because the old skin cells are shedding and new, healthy cells are replacing them.  This slight shedding should occur within three days and is expected to last for a week or so, but this is a natural side effect of cell renewal, so nothing to be worried about.  Once your skin has completed the shedding process, you will immediately notice the dramatic results of your skin’s appearance over the next four to six weeks becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful.

Used in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm System will enable patient’s skin to be prepared to its best condition and results maintained after treatment.  We recommend 4 to 6 weeks between each Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatment.

There will be a blender to be use after the peel.  The Obagi blender is a product from the Obagi Skin Care product line. Obagi blender is a cream applied to the face & neck and is used to even out skin tone.   The Obagi blender is used to lighten dark spots on the face, help clear up acne, and create a clear, even complexion.

When will I see results with the Blue Peel Radiance?

You will have tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin immediately after your first peel. However, when the healing process has finished, you will notice dramatic results to the tone, texture, and feel of your skin. Your complexion will become firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking. These results will only continue to improve over the next 4 to 6 weeks.

Enerpeel

The result - less surface trauma, greater efficiency

Enerpeel is one of the product lines under Tebitech where products are developed for the treatment of specific skin problems. It is designed to perform various types of chemical exfoliation at various skin depths, to exfoliate and stimulate skin rejuvenation.

Traditional chemical exfoliations work by creating surface trauma to the skin, triggering inflammatory reactions that stimulate deeper skin remodelling activity.

However, this often results in side effects such as erythema and skin-shedding. To reduce surface trauma and its side effects, the solution has been to reduce the acidity of the chemical agent. This results in decreased skin irritation, but proportionately reduced efficiency.

Enerpeel works by using a patented technology that restrains acid activity until it is absorbed by the skin, after which the acid protons are activated in a dynamic, controlled manner as they penetrate different layers of the skin.

Which conditions can be treated?

Enerpeel can improve many skin problems including, sunspots, stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.  It can help to control oily skin and pore refining as well.

How many treatments will I need?

Everyone is different but generally one treatment is not enough.  A guideline of 8 sessions is usually needed for good results.
