Obagi Blue Peel

There are many reasons to get the Obagi Blue Peel. Blemishes, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage to name a few. If you would like to have younger and healthier looking skin, look no further. There is a way to dramatically improve your complexion in just one day. It is not just for your face, it can also be performed on your neck, chest, legs, arms and hands.

Unlike alpha-hydroxy peels or other superficial procedures, the Obagi Blue Peel allows your nurse practitioner to control the depth of the peel and the number of coats applied to tailor the process to your own skin specific needs.

The Obagi Blue Peel uses Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) as the active ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi. The Obagi Blue Peel is applied based on the level of damage and the desired level of improvement.

To keep your skin’s new healthy glow and youthful appearance you can be prescribed the Obagi Nu-Derm System to work safely and effectively in conjunction with the Obagi Blue Peel.
