No matter what skin issues you are dealing with, when you start to do research or talk to individuals who work in professional fields that treat skin problems, it is likely that you are going to hear “chemical peel” again and again. This is because chemical peels can treat a wide range of skin problems. They can help individuals with everything from acne, as young adults, to fine lines and wrinkles as older people. And the great thing is they can treat almost everything in between. However, when a person decides that it is time for them to use a chemical peel to treat their particular skin issue, they may feel a little bit unsure when deciding which one is right for them.
The first thing that you should know is that there are generic chemical peels available. These chemical peels are effective, and when they are applied in a professional setting, you don’t have to worry about negative side effects. Of course, it is a chemical peel, so there are going to be the typical side effects that come from getting any chemical peel. The second thing that you should know is that there are higher-end chemical peels that are becoming more and more popular because they offer some benefits that are not always available with generic chemical peels. One of these is the Obagi Blue Peel.
The Obagi Blue Peel is a chemical peel treatment that is performed here in our office. This is going to put you on the fast track to transforming your skin and helping it to look healthier and blemish-free. There are two different types of peels from Obagi. There is the original Blue Peel and the Blue Peel Radiance. This brand is one of the leading treatments available to individuals to treat uneven pigmentation, sun damage, acne scars, blemishes, and wrinkles.
One of the advantages of using this system is that it can, of course, be applied to the face. However, it can also be used on the neck, hands, arms, legs, and back. The system has been approved by the FDA for use as a skin treatment. The basic difference between the two peels is the level of depth they will reach when they are applied. One is a medium level peel, and the other is a deep level peel.

One reason an individual may choose to go with the Obagi Blue Peel is because it has a low level of salicylic acid. This system is designed to be used in a specific way. You will need to come into our office for multiple treatments over the course of a series of weeks. This is a great option for individuals who do not want to spend a lot of time recovering after treatment.
Before an individual gets any kind of peel, it is good for them to do their own research, consider their personal needs, and consult with our skin care professionals at the Advanced Center for Plastic Surgery in Timonium. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation to learn more.
