Obagi Nuderm System and the Obagi Blue Peel – my own experience

I have a problem with face pigmentation and it stands out even more as my general complexion has improved with the Environ Skin Essentia AVST Step Up System.

I have not been able to treat the pigmentation because of the downtime involved

The silver lining for me when the lockdown was announced was the opportunity to start on the Obagi Nuderm System culminating in the Obagi Blue Peel after 5 weeks of use.

The photos show a significant improvement in both the right and left side of the face.

The Obagi Nuderm System has at its core the basic principles of :

1. Cleanse

2. Exfoliate

3. Hydroquinone (the bleaching agent) + tretinoin (Retinol family) and

4. Sun protection

After 5 weeks of use, the skin was ready to receive the Obagi Blue Peel ( trichloroacetic acid {TCA}).

The peel was uncomfortable as I had no local anaesthetic but not unbearable. Patients would normally be prepared with a local anaesthetic cream before the peel.

My face looked blue for 2 days post peel but I timed it over a weekend so I didn’t scare the patients during their video consultations. The face felt tight for 3 to 4 days. The peeling started on the 7th day and was cleared by the 10th day.

The Obagi Nuderm System is our product of choice at Kat and Co for skin pigmentation, particularly of the face. The results are even more dramatic when combined with the Obagi Blue peel
