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.
The Obagi Blue Peel works best on the face however, with great care it can be used on the neck, chest or back of the hands as well.
