If summer and holiday sun has taken it out on your complexion this year, we have the perfect solution: the Obagi Blue Skin Peel is an ideal procedure for anyone looking to reduce sun damage, smooth out fine lines, and tackle acne scars, blemishes, and uneven pigmentation – and it’s one of the most effective anti-aging and hydrating treatments on the market.
How the Obagi Blue Skin Peel works
The Obagi Blue Skin Peel is a low concentration of Trichlororoacetic Acid – a cosmetic compound which has been used by beauticians and cosmetic surgeons for decades – mixed with a special blue base to ensure an even, uniform distribution prior to application.
Like all chemical peels, an Obagi Blue Skin Peel allows your practitioner to regulate the depth of the peel in order to remove to remove surface layers of aged and damaged skin. These dead cells are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin to naturally reset itself.
What happens during a skin peel procedure?
An Obagi Blue Skin Peel procedure is a simple, quick, and extremely tolerable treatment that doesn’t require sedation. After the treated area has been prepped and cleansed, the application of the peel usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes – depending on the number of coats that your practitioner has prescribed.
What happens after a skin peel procedure?
You should experience slight shedding of skin within three days of the procedure, which will last for a week or so, but this is a natural side effect of cell renewal, and nothing to be worried about. Once the skin has completed its shedding process, you will immediately notice dramatic results: firmer, clearer, smoother and healthier skin.
