Obagi Blue Peel Reviews of Procedure

By Mike December 1, 2011 - 10:56 pm Skin Care

The Obagi Blue Peel Essential Kit is an Obagi Medical Products, Inc. chemical facial peel product. It’s

called a TCA peel because the main active ingredient is trichloroacetic

acid. It’s applied as an in-office procedure in a medical spa or plastic

Chemical facial peels remove outer layers of skin cells causing those cells to wither and fall off, hence the “peel” name. With the removal of the old skin cells, new skin cells re-grow and become visible on the surface resulting in a look with fewer wrinkles, reduced blemishes, more even skin coloration and less elasticity, providing a tighter, more youthful look.

A TCA peel is considered a medium-level peel because of the depth of skin removed by the procedure. With the removal of more layers of skin, TCA peels such as the Obagi Blue Peel are often used to treat more severe skin

pigmentation problems than superficial options like a Glycolic peel.

Although most commonly used on the face, a TCA peel is sometimes also applied to neck, chest, back, arms and legs when skin damage has occurred and correction is desired.

The Obagi Blue Peel is another product developed by Dr. Zein Obagi M.D. following his pioneering foray into multi-step skin treatments for serious skin blemish and discoloration issues that began with the Obagi Nu-Derm

system. The reason the Obagi TCA peel is called a blue peel is because

of the blue tint used in the base product that is applied in conjunction

The specific ingredients of the blue base are proprietary but it is known that Obagi has used vitamins and antioxidant compounds as supplemental ingredients in some of the products in the Nu-Derm skin rejuvenation system.

Prior to having a Blue Peel, Obagi recommends taking the intended area

through the full five-step, sixteen-product Obagi Nu-Derm system.

The doctor applying the peel will determine the proper level of skin depth

to reach based on the patient’s skin condition and will apply the peel

in the strength required to achieve the desired results.

The procedure takes about an hour. Some patients report a minor burning

sensation as the acid goes to work on the outer layers of the skin, but

the sensation is generally described as mild and pain medication is

rarely needed. It is normal for the skin to retain a blue tint following

the procedure due to the unique blue ingredient Obagi uses but it

normally washes off within a few days.

After the procedure there is typically swelling and redness in the affected areas for a week to

ten days. During this time it’s imperative that the patient avoid sun

exposure and use sun screen daily. Frequently patients will take time

off work and avoid social obligations during this time as their skin

sheds layers and goes through the healing and rejuvenation process.

Results are seen usually after ten days when the swelling and healing is

completed. The skin will be tighter, lighter and have more even tone

across the parts where the peel was applied. The skin conditions will

continue to improve for the next four to six weeks as new skin cells

continue to grow and become visible.

Following the healing period, Obagi recommends another complete application of their Nu-Derm system

to enhance and maintain the results of the Blue Peel.
