If you’re looking to accelerate your transformation and interested in a chemical peel procedure, the Obagi Blue Peel System may be right for you. The Obagi Blue Peel is used in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm System to enhance the effects of the peel and to sustain healthier, younger-looking skin.
Unlike common alpha-hydroxy peels or at-home procedures, the Obagi Blue Peel puts control of your treatment in professional hands. Based on your individual needs and skin condition, Dr. Parish will determine the strength of the peel. A complimentary consultation will help decide what product line best fits your skin’s needs.
The Obagi Blue Peel uses Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) as the active ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi. Dr. Parish will apply the Obagi Blue Peel based on your level of damage and your desired level of transformation.
The Obagi Blue Peel procedure takes less than an hour in our office and does not typically require sedation. Dr. Parish will apply the Blue Peel to the areas of your face and neck selected. A mild burning sensation will occur that generally lasts only a few minutes. Then you may experience a bluish tint to your skin that usually washes off in 12 to 24 hours.
Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin’s appearance should continue to improve for the next four to six weeks becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking. Prior to and after the procedure, Dr. Parish will recommend that you use the Obagi NuDerm System for two to six weeks before the Blue Peel. A time period will be set up during your initial consultation.
