Obagi Blue Peel Treatment

Eliminate stretchable wrinkles, scars and hyperpigmentation…

What is Obagi Blue Peel?

Obagi Nu-Derm system is used together with Obagi Blue Peel. By improving important skin cell functions with Nu-Derm prior to procedure, post procedure care is enhanced and down time is reduced.

Obagi Blue peel is a TCA with a non-ionic base. It is different from other TCA chemical skin peel as they are a clear and aqueous solution, and over painting and uneven penetration can easily occur leading to unsatisfactory results.

Blue peel enhances the control of the depth of TCA and the concentration is much higher at 35%.

What is the treatment procedure for the Obagi Blue Peel?

Obagi blue peel can only be used when you are undergoing the Obagi nu-Derm system. If you have fair pale skin you must have completed 6 weeks of the Obagi Nu-Derm system and for those who have dark skin you need to have completed 18 weeks treatment.

You will attend the clinic and the practitioner will apply the blue peel to the skin. When the peel is applied to the skin and you will experience burning, and stinging sensation and your face will be blue in colour.
