Obaji Blue Peel

The Obagi Blue Peel is a mid-depth TCA peel

How does it work?

The Obagi Blue Peel is a superficial to mid-depth Trichloric acid (TCA) peel.

By adding a blue dye, Dr Obagi made the peel safer and the results more reproducable.

More information about Obagi Blue Peel

Is the Obagi blue Peel safe?

  • Yes it is, in experienced hands.
  • As with all treatments, a good understanding of the product and patient anatomy as well as adequate training and experience is essential to minimise risk.
  • There is a risk of scarring, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and infection with all TCA peels.

does treatment hurt?

  • There is an uncomfortable but tolerable stinging sensation that lasts for 3-4 minutes after each coat of peel is applied.
  • People with an average thickness of skin will need two coats.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR TREATMENT?

  • It is essential that the skin is pre-treated with Obagi Nu-Derm for at least six weeks before the peel.

HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT?

  • The skin will be red and swollen after treatment with redness and swelling progressing over the days after treatment. This will be followed by several days of peeling of the skin which will be unsightly.
  • It is likely to take 10-14 days for the skin to heal (depending on the depth of the peel)

IS THERE ANY IMPORTANT AFTERCARE?

If you are treated at the Wessex Skin Clinic:

  • You will be supplied with the aftercare creams and shown how to use them.
  • You will be given detailed written information on how to look after your skin in the days and weeks following treatment.

HOW SOON AFTER TREATMENT WILL I NOTICE AN IMPROVEMENT?

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

  • Most people need one. People with more severe problems will need 2-3 Obagi Blue Peels.

HOW LONG DOES THE IMPROVEMENT LAST?
