The Obagi Blue Peel® is a chemical peel that can restore healthier and more beautiful skin to the face, neck, chest, hands, and even the arms and legs.
Obagi Blue Peel treatments take about 25 to 30 minutes and are performed on an outpatient basis in our office, usually without sedation. If sedation is used, you will need someone to drive you home after your treatment. Depending on your skin type and the desired results, you will probably require from 1 to 4 coats of Obagi Blue Peel solution applied to various areas of skin.
The Obagi Blue Peel can effectively improve a wide variety of skin conditions, such as uneven pigmentation, shallow acne scars, sun-damage, and freckling. Although the Obagi Blue Peel can improve facial wrinkling, it cannot correct sagging skin and deep wrinkles. In this casae, a face lift might be a more appropriate option. You can visit us for a VISIA® Complexion Analysis, which will help us create the best rejuvenation plan for your specific complexion.
Unlike glycolic acid and alpha hydroxy chemical peels, the Obagi Blue Peel uses a slow-acting TCA (trichloroacetic acid) solution applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells. Since TCA is not absorbed through the skin, there are no internal toxic effects. The slow action of the Obagi Blue Peel solution enables us to control the peel process and its depth. It tightens the skin, reduces wrinkling, and renews a more youthful appearance.

Once applied, the Obagi Blue Peel produces a separation and peeling of the outer layers of the skin. Most patients experience a warm to hot sensation, which may last as long as 2 to 3 minutes, followed by a stinging sensation.
