This deep peel gets it name from combining the Tricloracetic Acid (TCA) with a blue solution that enables your practitioner to precisely control the depth and coverage of the peel. As result your face will appear blue immediately after treatment, but this quickly fades.
The precision of the Obagi Blue Peel allows your practitioner to safely peel away more layers of skin to remove problems buried deeper in your skin and thus turn back the clock up to 5 years. This is the world's leading and most powerful skin peel that treats:
- Dark pigmentation
- Severe Acne
The application of the peel typically takes 20 minutes during which you may experience a mild burning sensation. Following the peel, light swelling occurs and your skin will begin to peel within 2-3 days and continue for up to 10 days.
Preparation and Aftercare
Prior to your Obagi Blue Peel you must prepare your skin using Obagi Nu-Derm skincare for 6 weeks. After your peel you will have 7-10 days downtime as the peeling is very visible. During this recovery period you must stay out of strong sunlight as your newly revealed skin will be sensitive to the sun. You must continue to use the Nu-Derm skincare to aid recovery and achieve the best possible results.
Whilst this peel requires preparation and has significant downtime, however the results are permanent and transforming, which is why it is the world's most famous skin peel.
