Skin is very prone to damage. Unfortunately, because our skin is so exposed, any damage or blemish cannot be easily hidden from view. However, the good news is that there are plenty of solutions to common skin problems. One comprehensive solution is the chemical peel. Chemical peels have been known to be very effective in treating a range of skin problems. Whether it’s acne during puberty or wrinkles and fine lines in your later years, chemical peels can help you out in many significant ways.

Peel Options

There are several options when it comes to chemical peels, and it can be hard to decide which peel is the best option to treat your skin conditions. Generally, there are two categories of chemical peels. Firstly, you have the generic peels, which can be effective for a variety of issues. However, if you want stellar results, you opt for the second category: high-end peels. High-end chemical peels are extremely popular because of the amazing results they provide. One such peel is the Obagi Blue Peel.

What Is an Obagi Blue Peel?

The Obagi Blue Peel is a chemical peel that is capable of transforming your dull-looking skin into something more radiant and appealing. It treats unhealthy-looking skin and blemishes with ease. The Obagi Blue Peel comes in two different options: the original Obagi Blue Peel and Blue Peel RADIANCE. Both are highly effective at eliminating acne scars, wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation, and sun damage.

How Does the Obagi Blue Peel Work?

The Obagi Blue Peel contains a chemical called trichloroacetic acid, or TCA, which is mixed with blue glycerin. The TCA is what targets and eliminated all the damaged and dead skin cells. The glycerin, on the other hand, regulates how far the chemical peel can penetrate.

The Peel-Application Procedure

The total treatment process for the Obagi Blue Peel takes about an hour to complete. Prior to the application of the peel, your skin will be prepared and cleansed by our experts. Some form of pain relief may be administered, since the Obagi Blue Peel causes a temporary mild burning sensation. Using cooling fans during treatment can also relieve the sensation. The peel itself takes about 15 minutes to be applied. However, this can vary according to the number of layers required. The number of peel coats applied may vary according to the exact condition of your skin and the goals that you may have set. After application, you may be left with slightly bluish skin, which will wash out in a few hours. Once the treatment process is complete, your skin will start to peel. The peeling occurs over the course of a few days. After almost two weeks, you can expect your skin to be fully healed. When this happens, you will notice that your skin looks much healthier than it used to. The appearance will improve over a few weeks, indicating optimum results.
