Blue Peel Treatment

 
A chemically superior peel that achieves optimum skin resurfacing alone.   
Formulated by renowned dermatologist and chemical peel expert, Dr. Zein Obagi, Blue Peel safely expands your powers of skin rejuvenation.
 
A well-tolerated procedure, Blue Peel rarely produces erythema or inflammation.  Patients can thus resume their normal lives quickly.  Blue Peel healing is relatively painless and occurs within seven to ten days.
 
 
Blue Peel Is More Comfortable Than Other Skin Resurfacing Procedures  
Skin that's been Blue Peeled heals faster than skin that's experienced other procedures.  For example, after dermabrasion, skin can take two weeks or more to heal and may stay red for three to six months.  After Blue Peel, there is light peeling as after a sunburn.  After Blue Peel, skin may exhibit a slight Blue tint or redness which three fades within seven to ten days.
 
In a series of 100 patients who underwent one to four Blue Peels, no serious complications were observed. Scars and permanent skin color changes were not observed in any patients.
 
What is the Obagi Blue peel?  
The Obagi Blue Peel is a one to four step application of Blue solution mixed with TCA (Trichloracetic Acid).  These applications will lead to the removal of thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin.  Layers of dead skin cells exfoliate and are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin's to exhibit clarity and tightness.
 
Who should consider an Obagi Blue Peel?  
Anyone who wants to look better and reverse the appearance of the aging process.  Those who have blemish-prone skin, or wrinkles, or pigmentation problems, sun damage, or general poor skin quality will benefit the most.  If you are pregnant, please consult with your physician first.
 
 
Will the Obagi Blue peel procedure damage my skin?  
No.  Peeling the skin lightly in a controlled manner will not cause any damage to the skin.  There are no internal toxic effects (TCA is not absorbed through the skin).
 
How many Obagi Blue peels can be done?  
London Laser's doctor will determine how many peels are necessary to achieve the desired result.  In most cases the procedure takes 25-30 minutes.
 
What can I expect?  
Depending upon the condition of your skin, 1-4 coats of the Obagi Blue Peel solution will be applied.   Most people will not require sedation.  If the doctor indicates sedation, you will need someone to drive you home.
 
At each level, you will experience a mild burning sensation that lasts 2 to 3 minutes.  The doctor may use an electric fan to help minimize this sensation.  A bluish tint remains on your skin:   it will usually wash off in 12 to 24 hours.  Your skin will begin to peel within 2 to 3 days and should be healed in an average of 7 to 10 days.  This peeling should not disrupt your regular lifestyle.
 
Can the Obagi Blue peel procedure be used to treat other parts of the body?  
Yes.  The Obagi Blue Peel can be performed on the neck, chest, hands, back, arms and legs using the same technique as for the face.  Discuss the benefits and process with us.
 
Can I do the Obagi Blue peel procedure myself?  
No.  The Obagi Blue Peel is a medical procedure and MUST be performed by a physician or a properly trained specialist working under his/her supervision.
 
How often should the Obagi Blue peel procedure be performed?  
Obagi Blue Peel treatments can be performed in 4 week intervals until the desired correction is achieved.   Annual Obagi Blue PEELS assist in the long-term maintenance of skin health and fitness.  NOTE: Deep scars and hyperpigmentation may need deeper peels and/or other treatment modalities.
 
Can I apply make-up after an Obagi Blue peel?  
Generally, make-up is not recommended for the first 7 to 10 days or until the skin has completely peeled.   More specific information will be supplied by London Laser.
 
What type of products should i use on my skin?
