Obagi Blue Peel

Obagi-tucsonTCA Chemical Peel

The Obagi Blue Peel can quickly rejuvenate your facial skin. Made with TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) the blue peel can help reduce blemishes and aging signs to reveal the fresher, younger skin below.

Patients at our Tucson office appreciate the blue peel because it is effective, but gentle enough so that it requires no downtime.

If you have unwanted pigmentation, sun damage, rough skin texture, dull complexion or blemishes, you may benefit from an Obagi Blue Peel. Obagi products are prescription-strength and are, therefore, only available through a physician.

How the Obagi Blue Peel Works

The first step is skin cleaning, which ensures that your peel can penetrate properly and reach every pore. The peel is then carefully applied to the facial skin. You may experience a mild tingling or slight burning sensation that lasts between two and three minutes as the peel starts to work. For a more aggressive treatment, multiple layers of the Obagi blue peel can be applied.

During the next few days, your skin will begin to flake and peel. After about one week, new skin will emerge and you'll exhibit a more vibrant appearance. For best results, it may be necessary to undergo a series of Obagi blue peels.
