Obagi vs. Melapeel for acne and pigmentation - Los Angeles

There is no 'cure' for acne breakouts.  I would begin an acne control regimen and then use the Obagi creams or Melarase to treat some of the pigmentation left over.  The MelaPeel is an excellent method to control acne and pigmentation. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles

Obagi Blue peel is not for acne break outs but rather to treat hyperpigmentation from sun damage and scar healing. It is a great peel. Melarase is also a good regimen to get on. 

Obagi Blue Peel for Acne Breakouts

While Obagi blue peels are excellent for treating increased pigmentation due to sun damaged skin, they can also be quite effective for improving acne breakouts.
