Dr. Foley is proud to provide the Obagi Blue Peel to patients who want 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.
The Obagi BLUE PEEL is a one to two step application of blue solution mixed with TCA (Trichloracetic Acid). These applications will lead to the removal of 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. You will experience a mild burning sensation that lasts 2 to 3 minutes. The doctor may use an electric fan and/or an intravenous narcotic 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 to 3 days and should be healed in an average of 7 to 10 days.
A BLUE PEEL can be performed on the neck, chest and hands using the same technique as for the face.
It’s a tough job providing protection from the elements day after day. We constantly expose our skin to solar radiation, environmental pollutants and cosmetics, and still we expect it to look beautiful without giving it the care and nutrients it needs to heal and replenish itself.
Proper skin care is crucial to maximizing and maintaining the results of cosmetic surgery. At Foley Plastic Surgery Center, you will find a wide range of top quality skin care products to help you achieve your goals. So don’t sell your skin short. Give it the help it needs to heal and protect.
