In 1999, Dr. Obagi was already running studies on his Blue Peel. Back then he reported that the Blue Peel was simple and gave doctors consistent results for those who had skin problems that affected the epidermis and upper parts of the dermis. He didn’t expect that the skin would tighten if it was loose, but it did when the Blue Peel was used. This gave his new Blue Peel a whole new dimension of use. This peel was something that could be used for those of all races and it could also be used for skin that wasn’t on the face.
The OBAGI® Controlled Depth Blue Peel is a procedure that is used on the face, neck, chest, hands, back, arms and legs.
The procedure time will be around 20 min to apply the peel however pre anaesthetic must be applied and nerve blocks to the entire face and neck. The deeper the peel, the more coats we will have to put on your skin. For comfort we invested in the pro 6 cooling machine blowing consistent -15 degree cold air.
After the OBAGI® Blue Peel, your skin will swell somewhat and then start to peel in 2-3 days. The peeling lasts for about a week, and brand new skin appears between 7 to 10 days. The skin will peel and look as if there’s been a sunburn during this time, but this appearance fades quickly. You are required to apply post procedure products to the skin in a precise manner for the next 10 days. It is advisable to take a week from work. You must refrain from exercise during the recovery phase.
Your Results Look Better and Better Over Time
As your brand new skin shows over the next 12 weeks expect to look more youthful with firmer and tiger skin. You can repeat the procedure about once every 5 years . Scars will be reduced, skin laxity tightens, wrinkles will look less deep and the peel can also eliminate any pigmentation problems.
