Obagi Blue Peel - Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) Peel

How It 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, your skin professional determines the strength of the peel. The Blue Peel can only be performed after completing the recommended Obagi Nu-Derm program to optimize results and healing time. A detailed home regimen will be prescribed after the peel as well.

The Obagi Blue Peel uses Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) as the active ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi. Your skin professional will apply the Obagi Blue Peel based on your level of damage and your desired level of transformation.

What To Expect
The Obagi Blue Peel procedure takes less than an hour and does not typically require sedation. Your skin professional 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. Your skin professional 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 and a tightening feeling. Within two to three days, your skin will begin to peel. This peeling continues over the next several days and 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.

More about the Obagi Protocol Product Program

Obagi Protocols
The Obagi Protocols Product Program is built on the concepts developed from years of clinical research by Dr. Zein E. Obagi, a leading and innovative physician. His methods and techniques are taught to medical specialists the world over. The program emphasizes the unique concepts of correction and stimulation of the skin, leading to better-regulated, strengthened skin functions that produce collagen, elastin, and healthier skin cells. These, in turn, produce smoother, firmer, healthier and more beautiful skin.

Penetrates the Skin to Stimulate and Correct
Conventional over-the-counter skin care products are unable to deliver their ingredients to an effective depth, and for that reason, are therapeutically weak. They may give the illusion or the feel of improving some skin problems, but most of their action is limited to only the skin surface. In short, they cannot restore skin health. Obagi Protocols can deliver needed penetration beyond the surface layer, thereby renewing not only the outer skin surface, but the deeper skin layers as well.

A Program for You
Healthy skin is defined by Dr. Obagi as smooth and firm, even in color tone, and free of evidence of damage or medical problems. Skin health can be achieved by using the Obagi Protocols principles.

1. Enhancing is the skin's ability to respond to treatment in a process of cleaning and toning ... and to keep the skin's pH normal.

2. Correction is designed to correct skin disorders and problems, and to restore visible purity to the skin surface.

3. Stimulation restores skin elasticity, enhances the production of collagen and replaces old, damaged cells.

4. Moisturizing is a process necessary if you have dry skin; moisturizers are needed on occasion or not at all when Skin Health is restored.

5. Prevention of sun damage is achieved through specially-created creams, which do not clog your pores as most sunscreens do. The special formulas protect and treat as they help prevent skin spots and pigmentation problems.

6. Maintenance is a program to keep your skin in a healthy state when correction and stimulation have been achieved. You may stay on the Maintenance Program indefinitely. This unique and exclusive approach has helped thousands of patients all over the world, and it can do the same for you. We invite you to benefit from this effective and medically-proven program.
