The Blue Peel is a quick, simple and tolerable treatment, which is considered safer and more effective than many other chemical peels on the market.
When scripting the Blue peel treatment, the patient must pretreat the skin 6 weeks prior to the procedure, using the Obagi Nu-Derm system at home. Once the treated area has ben prepped, the doctor will apply the Blue Peel.
The application is not painful however there is a mild burning sensation, which can be felt between applying the layers. The treated area may be slightly red and feel tight immediately after.
This procedure takes approximately 90 minutes and once completed can leave the treated area with a bluish tint, which can be washed at home over the first 12 to 48 hours.
