Who's Been Doing These Blue Peels? - Beverly Hills, CA

I've read all the comments, and I all have to say is, "What are your doctors doing?" Obagi does my blue peel himself. The procedure is over $3,000. It requires general anesthetic. There are products you must use prior-which do make you look awful. I had it done in 2009. It takes AT LEAST 10-15... READ MORE

I Do Not Recommend - Houston, Texas

I did this to remove brown spots on my cheeks after Retin A was not successful. This was a painful process in many different ways. The application of the peel was a 9/10. The recovery was very uncomfortable and painful at times. Could barely eat, yawning and laughing hurt. I was on house arrest... READ MORE

Just Had One 36 Hours Ago... - Santa Barbara, CA

Just had the blue peel done about 36 hours ago. I read up on the reviews so I took a valium and three Advil before I arrived at the doctor's office. The first layer wasn't too bad, just felt like a mild stinging. The second layer was more intense, felt like little needles. The last layer... READ MORE

Sedation for the Obagi Blue Peel - Nashville, TN

I inquired about the necessity of anesthesia upon having the peel. Most of my answers were from doctors who do not believe it is necessary. All I can say is that my doctor is very wise. Yes, he had me sedated. Yes, it would have been a nightmare otherwise. And yes, it was all worth it. I now... READ MORE

Obagi Blue Peel - Yuba City, CA

I had the Obagi Blue Peel less than two weeks ago. My skin used to be very leathery; I had major sun-damaged, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and nasty age spots. My results are unbelievable. My skin and complexion is so smooth and are truly indescribable compared to what it used to be. The... READ MORE

Obagi Blue Peel - Just Had Done - New Orleans, LA

I went in Saturday for my Blue Peel and with having this done seven years ago, I expected the worst. Normally, they put one thick layer on, and then apply another layer to another layer. I took a muscle relaxer before I went so I was a little out of it, but lets just say - I left there with the... READ MORE

Obagi Blue Peel, 2 Layers Applied - Florida, FL

Hi. I had an Obagi Blue Peel done today.

No - San Francisco, CA

Painful with no results. Some pigmentation even looks worse. PS was great but peel didn't work for me. I recommend her for other things and did see the before/after pix of her other patients who did the blue peel. Sadly, it didn't work on me. In addition to the peel cost, there were... READ MORE

Loved my Blue Peel

I had several Obagi Blue Peels done over the past five years. The results have been better than lasering I had done. It does hurt during and after the treatment.It is not for a person that can not stand pain. It did take about two weeks to heal. The results depend on the strength used and the... READ MORE
