Obagi Blue Peel System
There is also a range of vitamin C based Obagi products including Obagi Professional C-Serum and Obagi-C Rx System, and one product used in conjunction with the Blue Peel is the Obagi Nu-derm System designed to enhance the effects of the peel and to sustain healthier, younger-looking skin.
Not to be used in
Pregnant or breastfeeding women.
A skin conditioning programme using Obagi Protocols should be started at least 6 weeks before the Blue Peel is performed to ensure that the skin is in a healthy condition and to optimise the results of the Blue Peel.
Immediately after the peel application procedure, which takes around twenty minutes, a bluish tint remains on your skin, which usually washes off within 24 hours.
After the procedure, you will experience light erythema and your skin will peel within 2 to 3 days and will continue to peel for a few days. You should be healed in an average of 7 to 10 days.
When your skin is finished peeling, you will immediately see improvement. The appearance of your skin will continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks.
