The Obagi Blue Peel® is a chemical peel using Trichloacetic Acid (TCA) combined with a blue dye to make the peel safer and allow peeling to whatever skin level is needed for the correction of the specific problem your skin has. It is used in combination with the Obagi® Nu-Derm® Skin Restoration System to give you clear, smooth, healthy skin. During the peeling process, we remove the damaged surface layer of skin. Within 3-14 days it is replaced with a fresh layer that is smoother, well-toned, more even in color and has smaller pores.
The Blue Peel offers benefits over other peel methods because it allows us to better control many aspects of the process, including the depth of penetration, so treatments are safer and we can tailor it to you. Combining the Nu-Derm® system and the Blue Peel can help you achieve a dramatic silky-smooth texture and uniform skin tone.
Obagi Blue Peel is a trichloroacetic acid peel that is administered by a physician. It is stronger than those administered by an aesthetician. It can be modified from one that merely removes the outer skin layer to correct pigmentary abnormalities and brighten the skin to one that removes a substantial part of the skin to correct wrinkles and crinkles.
Anyone who needs a peel stronger than a Radiance, Glycolic or Jessner peel to correct pigmentary or skin surface abnormalities is a great candidate for an Obagi Blue Peel. This peel’s corrections can even do what a facelift cannot.
The cost of an Obagi Blue Peel treatment varies depending on whether the peel is a “Refresher” peel, a “Leveling” peel or something in between. Contact The Center For Plastic Surgery to get specific pricing or to answer any other financial questions you may have.
All the Blue Peels are used most commonly to correct facial skin but can be used elsewhere for selected reasons. Visit Dr. Buchanan in Highlands, North Carolina to learn how Obagi Blue Peels can benefit you and your skin!
