Obagi Blue Peel


What is Obagi Blue Peel?

The Obagi Blue Peel is a chemical peel treatment offered by the skincare company Obagi Medical. It is a medium-depth peel that is designed to improve the appearance of the skin by targeting various skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and sun damage.

The Obagi Blue Peel uses a blend of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a blue base to monitor depth and uniformity of application. The peel works by exfoliating the outer layers of the skin, promoting the growth of new skin cells and collagen production, resulting in smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

It is important to note that chemical peels like the Obagi Blue Peel should be performed by trained skincare professionals or dermatologists to ensure safety and optimal results. Prior to undergoing any chemical peel treatment, it is recommended to consult with a skincare specialist to determine if it is suitable for your skin type and concerns.

Benefits of Chemical Skin Peels:


  1. Improvement in Skin Tone: Chemical peels can help even out skin tone by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and age spots.
  2. Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Chemical peels can stimulate collagen production in the skin, leading to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  1. Acne Treatment: Chemical peels can help improve acne-prone skin by unclogging pores, reducing inflammation, and promoting skin renewal.
  2. Enhanced Skin Texture: Chemical peels can smooth out rough skin texture and promote a smoother, more even skin surface.
  3. Brighter Complexion: Chemical peels can promote skin cell turnover, leading to a brighter and more radiant complexion.
  4. Reduction of Scars: Chemical peels may help reduce the appearance of certain types of scars, such as acne scars or minor scarring.
  5. Youthful Glow: By promoting skin renewal and exfoliation, chemical peels can give the skin a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

 It's important to note that individual results may vary, and the specific benefits of a chemical peel treatment can depend on factors such as the type of peel used, the individual's skin type, and the expertise of the skincare professional performing the treatment.
