What is the Blue Peel?

The Blue Peel is an in office procedure designed to improve the appearance and health of your skin. Using a low concentration of the chemical trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special blue base to slow penetration, the Blue Peel allows your doctor to monitor the appropriate depth to effectively remove the thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin from the face or other parts of the body. These dead skin cells are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin's own clarity and tightness to resurface. The procedure is performed by your doctor, who has specialized training and experience with this effective and lower risk chemical peel.

What is unique about the Blue Peel?

Unlike alpha-hydroxy peels or other superficial procedures, the Blue Peel allows your doctor to control the depth of the peel and the number of coats applied in order to tailor the process to your skin's specific needs. The Blue Peel can even be performed on the neck, chest, hands, back, arms and legs.

What does the procedure consist of?

The Blue Peel is a quick, relatively simple and highly tolerable procedure that may require sedation. Oral valium is sometimes given prior to the procedure.

Application of the Blue Peel takes about 20 minutes, depending on the number of coats your doctor has determined is necessary to achieve your goals. You will experience a mild burning sensation that lasts two to three minutes (your doctor may use an electric fan to minimize this sensation). Immediately after the procedure, a bluish tint remains on your skin, which will usually wash off in 12 to 24 hours. Your doctor can explain the process to you in greater detail.

How long is the recovery period?

After the procedure, you will experience light swelling, and your skin will begin to peel within 2 to 3 days. This peeling will continue over the next several days and should be healed in an average of 7 to 10 days.

If you are having a lighter, exfoliative Blue Peel, healing is completed in 3 to 6 days.

In either case, this peeling should not disrupt your regular lifestyle for long, although you may want to limit your normal activity.
