Obagi Blue Chemical Peel
Obagi Blue Radiance has sometimes been called “the chemical peel for people who don’t time for peeling.” This is because it offers the same amazing results as traditional chemical peels – but more quickly and easily.
About the Obagi Blue Chemical Peel
Like most peels, Obagi Blue Radiance contains Salicylic Acid. Its unique formula also includes a blend of lactic and glycolic acids. Plus, it incorporates extra calming agents such as Willow Bark and Licorice Root that soothe the skin – and make it the ideal peel for people with sensitive skin.
Conditions the Obagi Blue Chemical Peel Treats
The Obagi Blue Chemical Peel can dramatically improve overall skin complexion. It also reduces or eliminates hyperpigmentation and heals sun damaged skin.
This chemical peel can be used top treat blemish prone skin, acne scars, fine lines & wrinkles, age spots, unwanted pigmentation, scarring, large pores, and sun damage and pigmentation of the face, neck and chest. It can also be used on the hands, back, arms, and legs!
After just a single Obagi Blue Chemical Peel skin is brighter, tighter, and smoother.
The Obagi Blue Chemical Peel Process
After cleaning the skin with a special Peel Preparation Solution, the Blue Chemical Peel is applied to your face and neck. You will typically experience a mild stinging sensation that only lasts a few minutes. The entire chemical procedure only takes about 20 minutes and does not require anesthetic.
The Obagi Blue Chemical Peel works by forcing dead skin cells to shed, while also stimulating collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. The ingredients of the peel, also clean out the pores and nourish the skin’s cells.
After the Obagi Blue Chemical Peel Process
There is no downtime, however the skin may experience a slight bluish tint that washes off completely in 12 to 24 hours. With stronger peels there can also be some very slight swelling that occurs.
The skin will begin to peel in 2 or 3 days – and continues to do so for 5 or 6 days. However, the peeling is very mild and can be managed with aftercare moisturizer lotions. Typically within a week, the skin should be completely healed.
Subsequent to this or any peel the most important thing to remember is to wear non-chemical sun protection of an SPF 35 or higher at all times. We will provide you with after-care instructions and products following your peel to help you care for your skin appropriately.
Our medical skin care staff will advise you on how many total peels are needed to give you the best result. Typically 4 to 6 chemical peels are recommended for maximum results.
