The Obagi Blue Peel is a one-to-four step application of blue solution mixed with the chemical TCA (Trichloracetic Acid). These applications will lead to the removal of the thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin. Layers of dead skin cells exfoliate and are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface. At Total Dermatology, we strive to deliver the best Obagi Blue Peel Irvine has to offer.
Anyone who wants to look better and reverse the appearance of the aging process. Those who have blemish-prone skin, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, sun damage, or general poor skin quality will benefit the most. If you are pregnant, please consult with Dr. Pilest first.
The Obagi Blue Peel represents a breakthrough and significant improvement in skin rejuvenation. Using slow acting TCA, instead of glycolic acid, the Obagi Blue Peel enables Dr. Pilest to control the peeling process and its depth. The process is tailored to the nature of the problem to be corrected, such as wrinkles, scars, laxity or pigmentation problems.
No. Peeling the skin lightly in a controlled manner will not cause any damage to the skin. There are no internal toxic effects.
Dr. Pilest will determine how many peels are necessary to achieve the desired result. In most cases the procedure takes 25-30 minutes.

Depending upon the condition of your skin, 1-4 coats of the Obagi Blue Peel solution will be applied. Most of our Irvine Obagi Blue Peel patients will not require sedation. If Dr. Pilest indicates sedation, you will need someone to drive you home. At each level, you will experience a mild burning sensation that lasts 2-3 minutes. The doctor may use an electric fan to 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 2-3 days and be complete, on average, in 7-10 days. This peeling should not disrupt your regular lifestyle.
