Obagi Blue Peel

A deep acting transformational medical chemical peel

The Obagi Blue Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel developed by Dr. Zein Obagi. It can be applied in 1 to 4 layers, depending on your needs, to deeply exfoliate your skin to renew its natural clarity and tightness. It can remove dyschromia (pigmentation problems), remove wrinkles and fine lines, acne scarring, and help reduce the signs of aging.

The Obagi Blue Peel works by utilizing 15 to 20% TCA, or trichloracetic acid. TCA is a chemical that is commonly used in peels becuase of its efficiency in removing outer layers of skin. Because this peel is a medium-depth peel it penetrates the skin more deeply than alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy acid peels. The peel is applied in layers which allows us to make the peel personalised for your own unique needs.

Candidates for a Blue Peel are healthy adults that have been using the Obagi NuDerm products for at least 6-8 weeks. The Blue Peel is a medium-depth peel so it is for people that have more serious issues. It is best for you to come in for a free consultation so that Dr Liz can give you individual answers as to what she can offer you to help with your skin care needs.

The Obagi Blue Peel can benefit you in a variety of ways, here is a brief list of some of the advantages to this peel:

  • Acne
  • Aging skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Scarring
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Skin laxity

The Obagi Blue Peel is safe to use on your face, neck, hands, chest, and back.

The Obagi Blue Peel is safe, but is a more invasive procedure than other light peels and therefore should only be done by a trained physician or aesthetician.

There is some mild discomfort associated with the peel which is generally a burning or stinging sensation.

For many patients, one peel will give the desired results. Again, this is dependent on your individual problem areas and what your unique goals are. A second Obagi Blue Peel may be repeated 7 weeks after the first, and you may consider getting one done once a year to maintain its results.

You can expect the procedure to take about 40 minutes.

Your skin will have a bluish tint for the first 12 to 24 hours. In about 2 days your skin will begin to peel and will continue to do so for an average of 10 days. Depending on your profession, some patients opt to take time off to allow for their skin to heal and begin to look normal following a treatment. It is important for you to stay out of the sun as much as possible as your skin will be very vulnerable to sun damage with the outer layers of skin removed.
