What is Obagi Blue Peel?
The Obagi Blue Peel is a one to four step application of blue solution mixed with the chemical TCA (Trichloracetic Acid). It is a superficial to medium depth chemical peel. These help to remove the surface layers of aged and damaged skin. Layers of dead skin cells exfoliate and are replaced by healthier ones.
Who should consider an Obagi Blue Peel?
If you want to look better and reverse the appearance of the aging process, you may want to talk to your dermatologist about the Obagi Blue Peel. Those who have blemish-prone skin, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, sun damage, or general poor skin quality will benefit the most.
Will it damage my skin?
There are no internal toxic effects. Peeling the skin lightly in a controlled manner will not cause any damage to the skin.
What should l expect?
Depending upon the condition of your skin, 1 to 4 coats of the Obagi Blue Peel solution will be applied. At each level, you will experience a mild burning sensation that lasts 2-3 minutes. We may use an electric fan to minimize this sensation.
Your skin will be tinted blue after the treatment. It usually washes off in 12 to 24 hours. After 2 to 3 days, your skin will begin to peel. It will be complete between day 7 to 10. This peeling should not disrupt your regular lifestyle.
