An Obagi Blue Peel® is a deep chemical peel that we use to provide dramatic skin rejuvenation for our Tucson clients. The Blue Peel is stronger than our other types of peels and requires one week of healing time for the face. This peel can be applied to non facial skin areas for rejuvenation and requires a little longer healing time. Medications often are prescribed for facial peels to diminish discomfort and help you relax, and therefore you will need to have someone drive you to and from your Blue Peel appointment.
This peel contains TCA along with a patented Blue Peel pigment that enables the doctor to control the depth of the peel. These applications produce a controlled peel, causing new, refreshed skin to appear. Most patients experience a warm to hot sensation, which lasts about 5 to 10 minutes.
Following a Blue Peel, the skin feels very taut and dry. It is initially red and then takes on a brown color. It will flake and peel over a period of about one week. It is important to avoid overexposure to the sun after a chemical peel since the new skin is fragile. We will prescribe aftercare with proper skin care products to reduce the chance of sunburn, irritation, or pigmentation problems.
