How Obagi Blue Peel System Works
Unlike common alpha-hydroxy
peels or at-home procedures, the Obagi Blue Peel puts control
of your treatment in professional hands. Based on your individual
needs and skin condition, Dr. Nirenberg determines the
strength of the peel.
The Obagi Blue Peel uses Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) as the active
ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi. Dr.
Nirenberg will apply the Obagi Blue Peel based on your level
of damage and your desired level of Transformation.

What to expect from your Obagi Blue Peel
The Obagi Blue Peel procedure takes less than an hour in our
office and does not typically require sedation. Dr. Nirenberg
will apply the Blue Peel typically to your face and neck. A mild
burning sensation will occur that generally lasts only a few minutes.
Then, you may experience a bluish tint to your skin that usually
washes off in 12 to 24 hours. Dr. Nirenberg will advise
you on how many peels are needed to give you the desired result.
Depending on the strength and depth following the procedure, you will
experience light swelling. Within two to three days, your skin will begin
to peel. This peeling continues over the next several days. By the seventh
to tenth day, your skin should be healed.
Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you
will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin's
appearance should continue to improve for the next four to six weeks,
becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking.
WARNINGS: The procedure for and use of TCA can only be performed
by a physician or if permitted by law, a properly trained specialist
working under a physician's supervision. Proper medical knowledge
is essential to the performance of any TCA peel. Dr. Nirenberg
will inform you about potential medical risks and complications.
Frequently Asked Questions About Obagi Blue Peel
How long should I use the Obagi Nu-Derm System
before getting a Blue Peel?
It varies based on the skin type, skin condition
and depth of the Blue Peel. Usually, a minimum pre-conditioning
program lasts 6 weeks. Skin with more pigment or hyperpigmentation
requires 12-18 weeks.
Why is the Blue Peel different than a TCA peel?
Because TCA is
a clear aqueous solution, over painting and uneven penetration
can easily occur leading to unsatisfactory results. The Blue Peel
is a unique procedure enhacing control of the depth of TCA. The
blue mixing base helps to ensure consistent results .
What should be expected during recovery?
Depending on the depth
level of the Blue Peel, healing time is between 3 and 10 days.
After the procedure, you will experience light swelling and your
skin will begin to peel within 2 to 3 days.
