Obagi Blue Peel

Reveal a new layer of healthier, younger looking skin!


The Obagi Blue Peel is a chemical skin peel which is used to remove and exfoliate the top layers of skin, revealing a brighter, healthier looking complexion. The Blue Peel is used in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm System. Use of the Nu-Derm System pre and post procedure helps to improve important skin cell functions and reduce down-time.

Obagi Blue Peel utilises TCA (trichloroacetic acid) mixed with a non-ionic blue glycerin base that allows precise depth control.

Patients will be required to complete a minimum of 6 weeks of the Nu-Derm system prior to treatment, this will be discussed during the Aesthetic Consultation.

Who should consider an Obagi Blue Peel?

Those who would like to improve:

Fine lines and wrinkles

Epidermal and dermal pigmentation problems

Superficial acne scarring

Large pores and comedones (white-heads)

Solar keratoses

Skin laxity and uneven texture

The Process

Prior to treatment, you will attend an Aesthetic Consultation with our Facial Aesthetic Clinician Richard Peppiatt, a highly skilled Nurse Prescriber. Here we will discuss with you in detail your medical history, concerns and desired result and go through treatment, ensuring you are a safe and suitable candidate for Obagi Blue Peel treatment.

On the day of treatment we will review your treatment plan before proceeding to treat the areas agreed.Mild analgesia (e.g. paracetamol/ ibuprofen) is recommended for this treatment.

TCA is mixed with Obagi Blue Peel base (total volume 4-6ml), 1 – 2 coats are applied to the area (5 – 10 applications). Comfort is achieved using a cooled air jet. The procedure takes between 30 – 60 minutes to complete.

A blue colour will persist on the skin until the peeling is complete. Peeling begins at days 2 – 3 and completes by days 10 – 14. Please follow aftercare advice below. Results will be noticeable 6 weeks after treatment.

Aftercare Advice

It is important you allow the skin to peel naturally – DO NOT pick or pull skin fragments

Apply Obagi Action or Comfort Gel to tight, dry or itchy skin

Try a cold compress for swelling and inflammation

Simple analgesia (paracetamol/ ibuprofen) is recommended initially

Makeup may be applied to new skin after 7 days

Avoid sun exposure without wearing a minimum of SPF35 for at least 6 weeks

Resume Obagi Nu-Derm maintenance once peeling complete

So helpful and reassuring. My site is amazing. The whole process was so smooth, I understood everything that I was told and knew of any risks and potential side effects before agreeing to anything. Couldn't be happier.

I recently had permanent lens procedure carried out by Mr Ghosh. Having glasses as a child and contact lenses for many years, this has been an absolute revelation for me. Mr Ghosh was absolutely brilliant and very professional from the start. All the staff are lovely and especially like to thank Dianne, Anita and the team. This has changed my life for the better thanks.

I visited the My Hearing Clinic knowing I needed a hearing assessment but thinking it was just a build up of wax. It came as a shock that I heard a hearing loss which needed addressing. The service I received from Andrew was outstanding! He explained my hearing loss and went through all my options. He recognised that it was a lot of information to take in so made a follow up appointment, giving me sufficient time to think about what I wanted to do. From start to finish the service has been excellent, efficient, professional and friendly from the moment you walk through the door and meet Lee. The clinic is well located, parking on site, high standard of cleanliness. Definitely a recommendation from me. Thank you!
