Obagi Blue Peel
What is the Obagi Blue Peel?
The Obagi Blue Peel is a quick, relatively simple, in-office procedure designed to improve both the appearance and health of the skin. By mixing a low concentration of TCA (Trichloracetic Acid) in a blue solution, thin layers of damaged or aged skin can be removed from the face or body.
The Obagi Blue Peel represents a significant breakthrough in skin rejuvenation procedures, as it enables your skin care expert to administer your treatment in a highly customized manner not possible with other chemical peels.

Some of these include the eradication of acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, pigmentation issues, and aging and sagging skin. An Obagi Blue Peel can be applied to the chest, neck, hands, back, arms, and legs, as well as the face.Blue Peel Ingredients
The Obagi Blue Peel ingredients are 15 to 30 percent TCA (Trichloracetic Acid) delivered in a patented blue carrier pigment.
Before & After Obagi Blue Peel
PERSONALIZED PRE-PROCEDURE CONSULTATION
Every successful cosmetic procedure begins with a carefully-crafted plan. During your pre-procedure consultation, your skin care expert will take a detailed medical history and perform a careful examination of your skin. You will also be asked many questions about your current lifestyle and your aesthetic goals that have led you to seek treatment.
After your assessment, you and your skin care expert will devise a plan specifically created for your needs. The process will be explained to you in great detail, and the number of coats and treatments you require will be discussed.
Any possible Obagi Blue Peel side effects will be discussed, such as tightness, redness and excessive peeling. Serious side effects are rare.
During your consultation, you will also be given a personalized 6-12 week course of Obagi Nu-Derm creams to prepare your skin for your upcoming treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR PROCEDURE
After you are made comfortable, your skin will be thoroughly prepped and cleansed by your skin care expert. Any pain relief, if indicated, will be administered. Then, one to four coats of the Obagi Blue solution will be applied to the treatment area. As we’ve established, the number of coats will depend on your skin’s condition and your particular aesthetic goals.
During the procedure, you may experience a mild burning sensation. Fans can relieve this discomfort, and are available for your use during the procedure if needed. The entire process usually takes 20-45 minutes. Immediately post-treatment, your skin will retain a bluish tint, but this should wash off within 24-48 hours.
