Obagi Blue Peel is a chemical procedure to peel out wrinkled, or acne-scarred skin and replace it with fresh, healthy skin. The process involves using chemical agents to penetrate superficial skin.
Sometimes, multiple peels are recommended for optimal results. The active ingredients in Obagi Blue Peel are mainly trichloroacetic acid (TCA) known to improve the skin by removing discoloration, spots, and wrinkles. TCA is used in different proportions depending on our evaluation of your skin. It is mixed with a proprietary blue base that gives a bluish tint to the skin after the procedure is complete and remains on the skin for 12 to 24 hours before it completely washes off.
Following the procedure, it is recommended that you use SPF 30 or higher sun-protection. Multiple peels may be necessary to achieve optimal results and slight swelling may appear following each peel and may last two to three days. Then the skin will peel for several days and will be fully healed in approximately seven to 10 days.
