The Obagi Blue Peel, TCA Skin Peels And Your Skin

Nov 22, 2007
There are many skin peel treatments available today. This article will deal strictly with the deeper, medium strength peels as they have much more defined results that last considerably longer than those attained with light chemical peels. The famous Obagi Blue Peel and its active ingredient trichloroacetic acid have long been a major constituent and feature on numerous TV shows and been heralded by many famous stars of the red carpet.

The Obagi Blue Peel has actually been said as having the ability to reverse time and aging. It does this by minimizing wrinkles, reducing fine lines and erasing age spots, sun freckles and numerous other sun related and age related conditions and problems. It has also recently been shown to be highly effective in treating pimples, zits, blackheads, whiteheads and even mild to severe acne.

The wide range of effectiveness and its relative ease in use has made it one of the most sought after skin care treatments available today. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons have waiting lists of people wanting either an Obagi Blue Peel or straight TCA peel.

Many medi-spas offer these peels as a part of their highly popular anti aging and rejuvenation packages. Many customers are now booking medi spa and similar rejuvenation treatments as vacation packages and to the tune of anywhere from $500 for a single treatment to thousands and thousands when grouped with other various treatments in a vacation package.

So, what exactly is the Obagi Blue Peel and TCA skin peel and what makes them so effective at transforming and rejuvenating skin? The Obagi Blue Peel is a skin peel that like most skin peels removes the surface most layers of skin through a controlled burn process. This in turn leads to peeling off of the dead skin cells and the revealing of fresh, younger looking skin. The Obagi Blue Peel was originally invented by Dr. Zein E. Obagi. Dr. Obagi saw the need for a controlled variable depth skin peel that would make application almost foolproof.

Basically, the Obagi skin peel is a skin dyeing solution that when applied to the face and neck skin will dye it blue or green in color indicating where the acid has been applied and how strong or deep. The more times it is applied the darker the dyed skin becomes. This made it so a more even peel with fewer missed areas would result.

The dye solution basically comes inert and has no chemical burning or peeling properties of its own. It needs to have trichloroacetic acid added to it to make it effective. The trichloroacetic (TCA) acid is its only active ingredient and is obtained separately. A neat feature of TCA (unlike most other skin peels) is that it self neutralizes with the skin so no neutralizer is needed except in strong applications or very sensitive skin issues.
