Obagi Blue Peel post treatment
The "damage" to the skin from an Obagi Blue Peel is immediate. Within minutes after the acid has been applied there is little, if any, further penetration and your skin begins its healing process. This can take a week or more. During the healing process, I recommend splashing cool to luke warm water on the skin and using a very mild cleanser, if any. Emollient creams or ointments, even plain petroleum jelly, can be applied for the first week until the dead skin is shed.
