The first signs of skin aging includes wrinkles and fine lines. An Obagi Blue Peel is a quick and straightforward in-office cosmetic procedure that can help remedy these adverse signs of aging.
The Obagi Blue Peel treatment is an effective method of restoring your skin to a more youthful state. It mixes TCA (Trichloracetic Acid), taken in various concentrations, in a blue pigmented solution that helps remove thin layers of aged and damaged skin from your face and/or body.
The blue solution helps to ensure your maximum safety during the procedure, because it allows your surgeon to precisely determine the depth of chemical penetration.
This is a revolutionary cosmetic skin treatment that has been adopted by skin specialists and cosmetic surgeons all over the world because it offers them the ability to administer the treatment in a customized fashion. This allows your cosmetic surgeon to tailor the treatment to fit your specific needs, which is usually not the case with similar skin-care treatments.
The Obagi Blue Peel procedure is effective in treating the following skin conditions:
• Sun damage
• Pigmentation/uneven skin tone
• Loose sagging skin
• Acne scars
The Obagi Blue Peel Treatment
The completion of the Obagi Blue Peel treatment typically takes 20 to 45 minutes, which makes it perfect for people who have busy lives and are short on time.
Once your cosmetic surgeon makes you feel comfortable, he will start prepping and cleaning your skin thoroughly before the treatment begins. The specialist will start applying one to four layers of the solution to the area that needs to be treated. The number of coats applied will vary depending on the unique aesthetic goals of each patient.
It is normal to experience slight discomfort during the Obagi Blue Peel procedure, but the degree of discomfort does not require you to be under sedation. Your skin may have a bluish tint once the treatment is over. However, this will wash off in a few days.
Obagi Blue Peel treatments are usually given in intervals of a few weeks until the patient and doctor are satisfied with the final results. For the majority of patients who undergo the procedure, one or two peels may be enough for achieving the desired aesthetic goals.
After the procedure is completed, your doctor will call you in for maintenance treatments so that the long-term benefits of the Obagi Blue Peel can be sustained.
