Rejuvenating Your Appearance: Is the Obagi Blue Peel Right for You?
Aug 14, 2013 - 1:56:51 PM
Understanding How Obagi Works
The Obagi Blue Peel contains trichloracetic acid, an ingredient commonly used by doctors to treat certain warts. The acid destroys proteins within the cells, causing the affected skin layers to exfoliate. By blending trichloracetic acid with the Obagi Blue base, the mixture ensures the acid slowly penetrates each layer that is affected by signs of aging.
The doctor determines how many applications of Obagi Blue, usually one to four, are necessary. This depends on the degree of your wrinkles, sun spots, and blemishes. You will feel a warming sensation as the peel starts to work. A fan blowing on your face minimizes the warming and helps you to relax. After 30 minutes, the peel is rinsed away and you go home.
What to Expect During the Recovery
Once at home, the peel continues to help your body shed the top layers of skin. Your skin may have a bluish tinge from the Obagi Blue, but that goes away in time. It feels and looks like a sunburn as you recover. The skin appears red and soon peels away. Your skin may feel dry and tight during this process. Topical lotions help soothe the skin as it sheds the top layers.
The entire process takes about 7 to 10 days before the top layers of skin shed completely. As the layers of skin fall off, the new, healthy skin appears. You'll look radiant with a younger, healthy glow.
