Slight shedding should occur within three days and is expected to last for a week or so, but this is a natural side effect of cell renewal, so nothing to be worried about. Once your skin has completed the shedding process, you will immediately notice the dramatic results of your skin's appearance over the next four to six weeks becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful.
Will I experience any pain during my treatment?
A mild to warm sensation may be experienced for a few minutes whilst Obagi Blue Skin Peel is being applied on your skin by the Doctor but is not expected to cause any severe pain. After the treatment the area of skin may redden and feel tight.
What do I need to consider after I've had my treatment?
Some patients choose to take a week or so from work during the shedding process. Some itching and tingling of the skin may also be experienced during this time. Make-up should only be applied after the skin is completely healed.
We recommend patients to avoid exposure to the sun or UV rays so applying a strong SPF is essential. Potential running or picking of loose skin may lead to scarring. It is advised for patients once the skin has healed to continue using Obagi Nu-Derm System products as part of an overall maintenance program.
How often do I need to have Obagi Blue Skin Peel treatments?
Your Doctor can advise how many treatments are necessary to give you your desired result.
