Blue Peel & Hyperpigmentation
Undergoing the Blue Peel without prep would likely come with an increased risk of worsening the very hyperpigmentation that you're trying to improve. I would recommend using the Obagi NuDerm System with tretinoin for a period of 12 weeks before considering a Blue Peel. Wishing you a beautiful result.
Blue peel - no skin prep
Thank you for asking about your Blue Peel.
I would never do a Blue Peel or any TCA peel without skin preparation. It puts you at risk of pigmentation changes that will be hard to correct.
