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 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.
Can the 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 Dr. Pilest.
Can I do the Procedure Myself?
No, the Obagi Blue Peel is a medical procedure and MUST be performed by Dr. Pilest or a properly trained specialist working under his/her supervision.
