Obagai Blue Skin Peels
Obagi Blue Skin Peels are a type of skin peel treatment. It is a non surgical procedure that can help rid the skin of blemishes, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage.
Like other skin peels, the Obagi Blue Skin Peel improves the appearance and health of the skin through the application of a low concentration chemical acid. This then causes the upper layers of skin to peel and exposes the fresher, less blemished skin for an improved and clearer appearance.
The Obagi Blue peel differs from other skin peels as its blue base allows the doctor to regulate the depth of the peel. The procedure is only ever performed by a doctor who has extensive knowledge of the peel.
Obagi Blue peel treatments
The application of an Obagi Blue Skin Peel treatment typically takes around 20 minutes, but it can vary depending on the goals of the patient and the doctor's judgement of how many layers are needed to achieve the desired result.
The Obagi Blue Skin Peel is relatively simple and pain-free procedure, but a doctor may decide to induce sedation on occasion.
Recovery after an Obagi Blue Skin Peel
Light swelling is to be expected after an Obagi Blue Skin Peel, and skin typically begins to peel 2 to 3 days later. The skin will continue to peel for a further 7 to 10 days on average. After this time a change to the skin will be noticeable and its appearance will continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks.
Obagi Blue Skin Peels can treat fine lines and shallow acne scars as well as dry or rough skin. However, a consultation with a cosmetic nurse counsellor will help patients determine whether this is the correct skin peel for them. Some people are better suited to skin treatments such as microdermabrasion or milder skin peel alternatives.
