Obagi Blue Peel

Obagi Blue Peel

Obagi Blue Peel is a peel that is designed to improve the health of your skin. It uses a low concentration of TCA or Trichloroacetic acid mixed with a special blue base to slow down the penetration process. This facial peel should only be used with the help of dermatology professionals. The Obagi Blue Peel allows dermatologists to monitor if the peel has reached the appropriate depths on the skin surface to effectively remove the surface layer of the damaged skin.

Once the dead skin cells are removed, your skin can produce healthier cells which allows clearer and tighter skin to resurface. Obagi Blue Peel can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with other skin treatments.

HOW DOES OBAGI BLUE PEEL WORK?

Obagi Blue Peel works like a chemical exfoliant through the use of TCA or Trichloroacetic acid mixed with a blue solution. The Obagi Blue Peel can safely and effectively rejuvenate the outermost layer of the skin by applying the acid mixed solution to the epidermis. This application results in the removal of thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin.

It can help with fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, dark spots, large pores and their laxity. The exfoliated layers of dead skin cells are replaced with healthier skin cells allowing the rejuvenation of the skin and restoring its tightness and clarity. Obagi Blue Peel can also be applied on other parts of the body like hands, neck, shoulders, chest, and back.
