Hi. I had an Obagi Blue Peel done today. I had my skin prepped before the peel, and my doctor made sure I used the Nu Derm System, and I also stopped any usage of the system 5 days before the Blue Peel.
However, my main skin problem was hyper pigmentation marks left from acne, and some melasma that was starting to develop while on birth control, but i stopped the birth control immediately as i started to notice the melasma.
The Obagi system already did some great things for my skin, and helped prep and made my skin smoother, but the hyper pigmentation was still there, so for this, I wanted to go ahead, and help further the process of my skin by doing this peel.
I had the peel done today, and oh boy did it burn. I had a TCA peel done 7 years ago, with good results, but opted for the blue peel, because i enjoy the obagi products, and also like how the TCA is mixed with the blue tint, so the doctor knows if the peel was applied evenly. But being so many years ago, I totally forgot how bad it burned.
However, I had 2 layers applied. She asked if I wanted the third layer, but it burned so much, I was too afraid to have the 3rd. She said i frosted very nicely, and feels I will get a good peel from this. But I am reading online now, that with a 3rd layer, you peel even more, and the results are even greater.
Just, my concern is, should I have gone for the third layer, and not have chickened out? I paid so much, so I hope that the 2 layers were enough. But I am also being very impatient, as this is the first day, and the days of the peeling are yet to come.
Any advice would be great, especially if you have had this peel done before.
