What is Obagi Blue Peel®

 Obagi Blue Peel ® Treatment Center 

The Obagi Blue Peel  is a unique procedure to precisely control the depth of a peel using a substance known as Tricloroacetic Acid (TCA). The blue is in the base that us applied to the face as a safe guard to enable the practitioner to see the depth of application to the skin and areas that need more or less of the base peel. The peels are variable in the depth and can be used on all skin types and can also be effective on neck, chest, hands and arms. 
The procedure takes up to half and hour dependant on the area to be covered and you will receive a full pre assessment prior to any treatment of this nature where you can discuss any questions that you have with your consultant.

Why would I have it?

The treatment is used to resurface the facial skin following severe effects such as:
Lines & wrinkles 
Pigmentation variance over face
Post inflammatory effects of hyper pigmentation after acne. 
Aging due to sun damage to reduce deep wrinkles
Lentigo solaris 
Actinic keratosis  With Dr. Rothfeld  you will have a full consultation where a clinical assessment is performed and any issues relating to your treatment are discussed by you & Dr. Rothfeld. This will help you to decide the preferred peel that will give you best results. 



If the Obagi Blue Peel® is the peel of choice you will be prescribed a range of the facial skin is prepared by using the pre treatment skin preparations that create a base for the peel to work.
The depth of peel is dependant on the primary skin condition to be treated. There are 2 main layers of the skin. The epidermis which sits on top of the dermis. Skin thickness is classified as thin, thick and normal. 


 Light exfoliation. This will penetrate the top layer of skin known as the stratum corneum to reduce fine lines, large pores, comedones (resistant black heads) and minor skin pigmentation problems. The time period for healing differs from person to person though the red effect from the skin peel should be less within 3-6 days.
• Deep exfoliation. This penetrates the epidermis to the basal layer which is the bottom layer of the epidermis, the top layer of skin, so it is moderate in depth. The healing time is 6-10 days. This can be applied for deeper lines and acne scarring correction and pigmentation problems the time period for healing differs from person to person though the red effect from the skin peel should be less within 6-10 days.
• Standard Blue Peel. This deep peel penetrates the papillary dermis which part of the dermis and is used for marked pigmentation and deep acne scarring problems as well as deep lines and wrinkles. The time period for healing differs from person to person though the red effect from the skin peel should be less within 8-12 days. 
• Designed Blue Peel. This deep peel penetrates what’s known as the reticular dermis. This is part of the dermis. This is used for very deep pigmentation variances and acne scarring that is resistant to less invasive peels. The time period for healing differs from person to person though the red effect from the skin peel should be less within 12- 16 days.

New York Dermatology by Board Certified  Dermatologist Dr. Gary Rothfeld  is a board certified NYC  Dermatologist with a  New York City office in Manhattan, New York  providing expert skin care, dermatology, and cosmetic dermatology services.  A Park Avenue practice with an international reputation in general, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology.

I personally see every new patient who visits our office. I am not just a physician, I am a Board Certified Dermatologist. My goal is, quite simply, to provide the type of dermatologic care which I  would seek for my own family. This is a very important point, since physicians often use the phrase "Doctor's Doctor" to refer to those individuals who typically are selected by physicians themselves for personal care. I am confident that my practice fully meets that definition. This is the type of 5-star care and service that our patients expect, deserve and receive. I treat every patient the way I would want to be treated: with courtesy, dignity and respect. I carefully listen to their hair and skin-care concerns and offer a variety of options including a treatment plan that I believe will give them the best results 

Dr Gary sees every patient himself and  believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.

A significant percentage of my  Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed  on listening to medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further investigation and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists.  I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients.  This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient the cosmetic procedures will not work.

It is vital to undergo a full pre assessment to ensure that your skin type is fully assessed and to be  accurate about your medical history. This particular procedure might not be the right treatment for you.  It is crucial that the Doctor does a full History and Physical Examination and listens to your concerns.  It very important to understand the individual needs of each patient because one procedure could work on one patient and then not another.


Each patient’s condition is carefully evaluated and the best treatment(s) are chosen to ensure an optimal outcome. Treatments are performed by Dr. Gary who has extensive cosmetic dermatology experience and training. This allows the Doctor to offer top-quality services in every area of the cosmetic dermatology field, while ensuring patients safety and satisfaction.
