If you're looking to accelerate your Transformation and interested in a chemical peel procedure, then the Obagi Blue Peel System may be right for you. Prior to and after the procedure, Dr. Parish will recommend that the patient use the obagi NuDerm system from 2-6 weeks before the Blue Peel.
Unlike common alpha-hydroxy peels or at-home procedures, the Obagi Blue Peel puts control of your treatment in professional hands. Based on your individual needs and skin condition, Dr. Parish will determine the strength of the peel.
The Obagi Blue Peel uses Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) as the active ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi. Dr. Parish will apply the Obagi Blue Peel based on your level of damage and your desired level of Transformation.
The Obagi Blue Peel procedure takes less than an hour in and does not typically require sedation. Dr. Parish will apply the Blue Peel typically to your face and neck. A mild burning sensation will occur that generally lasts only a few minutes. Then you may experience a bluish tint to your skin that usually washes off in 12 to 24 hours.
Depending on the strength and depth following the procedure, you will experience light swelling. Within two to three days, your skin will begin to peel. This peeling continues over the next several days. By the seventh to tenth day, your skin should be healed.
Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin's appearance should continue to improve for the next four to six weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking.
