Obagi Blue Peels

Richard Peppiatt - Harley Street Certified Facial & Body Aesthetic Practitioner (Specialist Honours)

Obagi Blue is a chemical skin peel that removes and exfoliates the top layers of the skin, revealing brighter, smoother skin underneath.

What skin conditions can an Obagi Blue Peel® help treat?

The treatment can help with:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin pigmentation problems
  • Superficial acne scarring
  • Large pores and comedones (white-heads)
  • Solar keratoses and sun damage
  • Skin laxity (looseness and sagging) and uneven texture

What happens during an Obagi Blue Peel® treatment?

In preparation for your first Obagi Blue Peel® it is necessary to use the Obagi Nu-Derm course for at least 6 weeks. This is a cosmetic application that stimulates colagen production and increases the elasticity of the skin.

The Obagi Blue Peel® itself starts with your skin being thoroughly cleansed by Richard our Aesthetic Medical Facial & Body Practitioner.

A mild analgesic (paracetamol / ibuprofen) is prescribed.

The Blue Peel solution is then applied to the whole of the face area while a cooling jet of air helps to ease any initial discomfort. The application takes between 30 - 60 minutes.

The blue colour will persist on skin until the peeling is complete. Peeling begins at day 2-3 and completes by day 10-14. Results are noticeable by 6 weeks.

Aftercare advice for your Obagi Blue Peel®

  • Allow skin to peel naturally - DO NOT pick or pull skin fragments
  • Apply Obagi Action or Comfort Gel to tight, dry or itchy skin
  • Try cold compress for swelling and inflammation
  • Simple analgesia is recommended initially
  • Make up may be applied to new skin after 7 days
  • Avoid sun exposure without SPF > 35 for at least 6 weeks
  • Resume Obagi Nu-Derm maintenance once peeling complete

Possible side effects with Obagi Blue Peel®

  • Redness and swelling are COMMON
  • Skin infections are LESS COMMON and easily treated with antibiotics
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is RARE - treatable with Hydroquinone cream
  • Scarring is VERY RARE
