Look Years Younger in Mere Minutes
Beautiful, healthy skin can have a tremendous impact on your appearance, your self-confidence, the way that you carry yourself, and the impression that you make on others. Soft, supple skin can make you look years younger than you actually are and make others take notice of you. One of the simplest means of maintaining your skin's healthy appearance is with a chemical peel. At our Phoenix area locations in Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg, we offer one of the best treatments on the market - the Obagi Blue Peel®. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Emilio Justo's Registered Nurse, Roxanne Dorty, R.N., or to learn more about our skin treatments, please contact the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center today.
Obagi Blue Peel®
The Obagi Blue Peel® chemical peel is a popular treatment at our Phoenix area cosmetic centers. Simple and cost-effective, it can restore the appearance of your skin, giving you a tighter, firmer, more radiant look. Designed to be used in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm® System, the Obagi Blue Peel® treatment is administered in our office, and is not intended for take-home use. The active ingredient in the chemical solution is trichloroacetic acid, or TCA. This acidic element is used widely for cosmetic treatments ranging from tattoo removal to the treatment of warts, and is a safe, effective ingredient.
During treatment, a skin care professional from our team will apply the Obagi Blue Peel®. The scope of the chemical peel will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of skin damage that you suffer and your personal aesthetic goals. Once the solution has been applied to the face, a mild burning sensation may persist for a few minutes, but this typically subsides. After the peel has been left to sit for approximately one hour, and penetrate the outer layers of the skin, allowing the active ingredients to work, the peel will be removed. The skin may have a slightly bluish tint to it for roughly 12-24 hours, though this tint can be washed off and will go away. Typically, the outer layer of dead skin will begin to peel 2-3 days after the procedure, and the skin should be completely healed roughly one week after treatment.
After the skin has healed, your complexion will be smoother, tighter, and clearer, making it appear healthier and more youthful. The effects of treatment should continue for 4-6 weeks, as your skin continues to improve. Though we offer soft tissue dermal fillers for individuals looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and laugh lines, many of our Phoenix area patients find that a chemical peel can satisfy their needs. If you are looking to correct superficial flaws and mask the effects of aging, Obagi Blue Peel® may be right for you as well.
