Facial peels are, possibly, our most ancient cosmetic medical skin care treatment. In fact, Cleopatra herself took sour milk baths, which, of course, contained the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), lactic acid. In the April 2007 issue of Allure (“Anti-Aging Special – A Wrinkle In Time”), they wrote that the ingredients for a peel are documented in an ancient Egyptian medical passage under, “For Transforming an Old Man Into a Youth.” While there’s certainly no fountain of youth, facial treatments like the Obagi Blue Peel are working wonders in helping both men and women in and around Sacramento and Granite Bay achieve more vibrant, youthful looking skin.

If you’re considering a chemical peel, Sacramento’s Plastic Surgery Center can help. Call 916-569-0861 to schedule a consultation today.

Everything You Need To Know – And More – About the Obagi Blue Peel

Approximately every 30 days, your skin renews itself, with new cells taking the place of old. Unfortunately, as you age, this process slows down and dead cells begin to build up. The end result is dull skin. Chemical peels such as the Obagi Blue Peel exfoliate these dead cells, so that healthy ones can again reach the surface.

Effective on all skin colors, the medium-strength Obagi Blue Peel combines TCA (trichloracetic acid) with the patented Obagi Blue Base. First, it is tailored to your specific needs, and then it is applied to the skin in 1 to 2 layers by a trained Esthetician under your doctor’s supervision. It can be applied to your neck, chest, arms, hands and face to treat fine lines, tighten pores, reduce brown skin discolorations and to improve the overall texture and function of your skin. For even more powerful results, some Sacramento men and women elect facelift along with their chemical peel.

The Obagi Blue Peel only requires one hour of your time, although you must be pre-approved for the cosmetic medical procedure by one of the plastic surgeons at Sacramento’s Plastic Surgery Center, as well as undergo a prep program. During your procedure, you might experience a slight feeling of burning; afterwards, some minor swelling and flaking. The skin rejuvenating benefits of an Obagi Blue Peel are progressive, so while you should see the first signs of improvement in 7 to 10 days, the full benefits of healthier, more youthful looking skin will be enjoyed at around 4 to 6 weeks.
