Caring For Your Skin After An Obagi Blue Peel

If you are experiencing signs of aging skin like wrinkles and dark spots, or if you are prone to blemishes and acne scarring, melasma, or if you have dull skin and want to achieve radiant and brighter skin, you may be a good candidate for the Obagi Blue Peel.

This treatment is performed by a board-certified dermatologist. It is an in-clinic procedure designed to use trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special blue base; the blue color of the blue peel allows the doctor to monitor the appropriate depth of the acid penetration and ensure a uniform application of the acid to the skin.

Here are some tips to ensure your Obagi Blue Peel skin healing process goes smoothly:

TIP #1: USE A MILD CLEANSER

Use a mild cleanser, like the SUZANOBAGIMD Foaming Cleanser or Obagi Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser, after an Obagi Blue Peel as to not disrupt the skin barrier during healing.

TIP #2: AVOID USING CERTAIN SKINCARE PRODUCTS TEMPORARILY

Skincare products such as exfoliants and retinoic acid cream must be avoided until the skin has fully healed. The Obagi Blue Peel is already a form of skin exfoliation. Adding another layer of topical exfoliation will irritate the skin.

TIP #3:  AVOID SUN EXPOSURE

Sun shining brightly

Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF50, such as the Obagi Sun Shield Broad-Spectrum Matte SPF50 or SUZANOBAGIMD Physical Defense SPF50,because the skin is in its most sensitive state during this time and is more prone to inflammation and sun burn.

TIP #4: AVOID STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES

Strenuous activities may cause skin irritation, among others. When you undergo strenuous physical activities, you tend to sweat and sweating may alter the desired results and healing process of the Obagi Blue Peel.

TIP #5: DO NOT PEEL YOUR SKIN

As tempting as it can be, do not peel the skin. Allow the skin to peel on its own as manipulating it will lead to premature peeling and undesired results. The Obagi Blue Peel peeling process takes about 7-10 days to finish. Be patient with the process and enjoy the results!

TIP #6: AVOID ABRASIVE COSMETIC PROCEDURES

To prevent unnecessary damage to sensitive skin after an Obagi Blue Peel, wait at least 2 weeks before undergoing a laser resurfacing treatment, microneedling or radiofrequency procedure.
