There are a great deal of facial rejuvenation treatment options available to those who want to safely improve their facial appearance. Many of them require patients to undergo extensive procedures that require downtime, but there are new treatment options that give people a choice to undergo a less invasive treatment. If you are looking for a unique solution to your skin problems that does not require surgery or downtime, the Obagi Blue Peel may be exactly what you’re looking for.

A Unique Solution for Facial Rejuvenation

Obagi Medical Products Inc is a pharmaceutical company in the United States that specializes in producing top-quality dermatological products. Founded in 1988, the products the company manufactures are designed to provide cosmetic relief for various skin conditions.

The Obagi Blue Peel is a chemical peel that provides a single solution to a wide range of skin problems. From wrinkles to pigmentation, the peel can reduce the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles of all types. The peel treatment is designed while keeping in mind the requirements of various skin types.

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is used in the blue peel. This particular chemical is very beneficial for the skin because it provides a smoother and softer appearance. It can also help boost the production of collagen in your face, making your skin firmer. The TCA can reach the deep layers of the skin and help provide long lasting results. Out of the various chemicals used in chemical peeling, the TCA offers the best result.

How Does the Peeling Process Work?

To begin the treatment process, your doctor will review your medical history to make sure that you’re in good health and ready to undergo the treatment. Once your candidacy is determined, he will assess your needs and develop the ideal treatment plan.

The process begins with the application of a facial cleanser. Your face will then be gently scrubbed to get rid of any accumulated dirt. Once your face is cleaned, the cleanser is removed. Next, petroleum jelly is applied around the eyes, mouth, nose, and ears to prevent the acid from entering these sensitive areas. Now you are ready for the application of the chemical peel.

Once the blue peel is applied, a circular motion is used to gently scrub the solution into your skin. You may feel a tingling sensation when the peel is applied. A maximum of three layers of the peel can be applied during a single treatment session depending on the extent of cleansing needed. Once all the layers are applied, the peel will need to sit in the area for a few minutes. This allows for deep cleaning.

Next, the peel is removed using the facial cleanser. Finally, a moisturizer and a sunblock, which is usually SPF 30+, is applied to keep your skin soft and to lock in the effects of the peel.

The Benefits of the Obagi Blue Peel

This peel can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne, pigmentation, and pock marks. Your skin will get a beautiful, radiant glow post-treatment. The collagen produced will not only tighten sagging skin, it will also improve its contours. With the Obagi Blue Peel treatment, you have a one-stop-solution for all your skin conditions.
