Obagi Nu-Derm, Obagi Blue Peel, Other Peels
The skin is made up of millions of cells. Each day, thousands of these cells die, fall off, and are replaced by new cells from beneath the skin. As you age, this process begins to slow down. Dark blotches, signs of aging and sun damage begin to appear. Your skin may become dull and develop fine lines and small wrinkles
The Obagi Blue Peel procedure helps to restore healthy, beautiful skin. Unlike Glycolic Acid and Alpha Hydroxy peels, the Obagi Blue Peel uses a slow-acting TCA (trichloroacetic acid) solution applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells. Since TCA is not absorbed through the skin, there are no internal toxic effects. The slow action of the Obagi Blue Peel solution enables your surgeon to control the peel process and its depth. It tightens the skin, reduces wrinkling and renews a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Soldo has had an extensive preceptorship and many follow-up sessions with Dr. Zein Obagi in his Beverly Hills office. Dr. Obagi is world-renowned and his skin care line is universally accepted for treating acne and for skin rejuvenation. The Obagi Blue Peel® is performed with IV sedation and monitoring and Arizona Vein & Skin has long been recognized as the experts in the Obagi programs.
What areas can be treated?
Obagi Blue Peels can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands and even the arms and legs.
What conditions can an Obagi Blue Peel treat?
An Obagi Blue Peel can effectively improve a wide variety of skin conditions including fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, shallow acne scars, sun-damaged skin and freckling.
An Obagi Blue Peel is not a substitute for a facelift. It cannot eliminate excessive or lax skin. But, in many cases your physician may suggest that an Obagi Blue Peel be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.
What is a Blue Peel treatment like?
The Obagi Blue Peel takes 30 to 45 minutes and is performed on an out-patient basis in your physician's office, usually with sedation. If your physician indicates sedation, you will need someone to drive you home. Depending on your skin type and the desired results, you will probably require from one to four coats of Obagi Blue Peel solution applied to various areas of skin. Once applied, the Obagi Blue Peel produces a separation and peeling of the outer layers of the skin.
Most patients experience a warm to hot sensation, which may last as long as two to three minutes, followed by a stinging sensation.
