If you have moderate to significant concerns with hyperpigmentation, acne scars, large pores, loose or wrinkled skin, Obagi Blue Peel will restore your skin’s clarity and radiance, smoothness and tightness using Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) mixed with the patented blue base from Obagi. This peel is appropriate for all skin types and may be used on both facial and non-facial skin.
Your medical aesthetics specialist will assess your skin and the level of correction you would like to achieve prior to making their Obagi Blue Peel recommendations. They will give consideration to the number of Obagi Blue Peels you should receive, as well as the depth of the peel and a treatment schedule, to ensure you achieve maximum results. This peel requires a preparation of your skin using the Obagi Nu-Derm System for at least one month prior to your scheduled peel. Oral antibiotics are to be taken for 5 days, beginning two days prior to your scheduled peel.
Twilight sedation is generally recommended, but not required, during the Obagi Blue Peel due to the mild burning sensation that will occur for a few minutes during the application of the peel. You will experience a bluish tint to your skin that usually washes off in 12 to 24 hours. Depending on the depth of your peel, you may experience mild swelling of the area. Within 2-3 days of the application of the Obagi Blue Peel, your skin will begin to peel. This peeling process will be fully accomplished within 5-10 days.
The results are worth the time and recovery! A visible improvement in your skin’s texture, color and firmness will be noticeable immediately following the peel. Your skin's appearance should continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks, becoming even more firm, clear, smooth, healthy, and younger looking.
Treatment time: 2 hours
