We provide a variety of options to treat your skin’s surface impurities – among them is the Obagi Blue Peel®, which removes the outermost layers of skin to treat skin problems.
The Obagi Blue Peel® is a unique formulation that includes beta-hydroxy acids and alpha-hydroxy acids, such as glycolic, lactic and fruit acids, which work to clear your skin of imperfections. Your surgeon or aesthetician can apply the Blue Peel® formula to your skin, based on your individual needs. An added benefit of the Obagi Blue Peel® is that it requires no downtime after treatment.
Individuals with a range of skin issues and imperfections may be ideal candidates for the Obagi Blue Peel®. The treatment is shown to take care of rough, dry skin, dull complexion, poor skin texture, acne, and superficial blemishes. It may also be mixed with a bleaching agent to correct pigment inconsistencies and may be used as a pretreatment for a deeper type of peel.
The Obagi Blue Peel® procedure is brief and usually takes about 15 minutes. The skin to be treated will be thoroughly cleansed. The Obagi Blue Peel® solution will then be applied evenly to your face, neck, and chest. In order to achieve the best results from your treatment, follow-up sessions may be required and a home care regimen may be prescribed by your aesthetician or plastic surgeon.
Following your Obagi Blue Peel® treatment, you will likely experience temporary flaking of your skin as new, fresh skin cells emerge in the treatment areas. You will not be required to apply an ointment to the site, but you should apply a sun block and take care to avoid prolonged sun exposure. When you leave our Chapel Hill office, you should be able to resume your normal routine immediately.
Some side effects are possible following an Obagi Blue Peel® treatment. In addition to the temporary skin flaking, you may also experience redness or dryness of the skin.
As a quick treatment to clear up skin impurities, the Obagi Blue Peel® is an easy choice. We encourage you to call us in Chapel Hill today to set up a consultation and learn more about Obagi Blue Peel® treatments.
