It’s been almost 17 days since my Obagi Blue Peel experience, and let me just tell you that I’m so happy with my new skin!
With the follow-up consultation that transpired last Thursday, I went out of the house wearing really minimal makeup ( as I would not want to clog my pores just that fast again – ahh! ), applying sunblock, a pea sized amount of The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso BB Cream, and some Bobbi Brown Corrector for my undereyes. I finished my look with a very thin dusting of Colorescience Pressed Mineral Pigment, and went for sheer coverage that day.
When I met up with Dr. Julie in the Greenbelt 5 branch, Dr. Julie complimented my skin, as she initially thought that I looked younger. My skin looked more even, and my pores became really, really tight, that she told me, “you know, with your pores so tight and almost nonexistent, your icepick scars are now more noticeable. That’s because before, your enlarged pores blended with the scars.”
WOW. Pores problem – almost gone, with maintenance! This has been a lifelong problem of mine, I swear! Pores are still there and monthly cleaning was still required, but they aren’t as big as before! I was told that I would not need to use the Obagi Nu Derm System as I did not have stubborn sun damage or brown marks, but I do have an option of using it if I’d like to rejuvenate my skin once in a while. I was just so wowed with the effect of the Obagi Blue Peel - admittedly, I saw my skin tone become more even, and fairer! I did not need too much coverage from makeup, and that left me a wonderful feeling! With my maintenance of M2 Skin Refinish every night, and Obagi Clenziderm Toner ( + sunblock and serums, amongst other things ), Dr. Julie says that I should be fine! Next stop – weigh the options if I should go for laser resurfacing or dermaroller for my depressed scars ( as depressed scars are altogether another ballgame – and no, Obagi Blue Peel can’t just erase stubborn depressions as major resurfacing is needed)
To end this entry, I would like to say that I am totally wowed by Obagi Blue Peel‘s effects on me. Aside from my newly tightened pores, my skin has also become significantly radiant – making me look fairer with a very even skin tone. I would have to say that the Obagi Blue Peel would really work for my skin type – which is really oily, with enlarged pores, and some pigmented scars. It would also be beneficial for those who have sun damage ( melasma ) on their skin, and those who have wrinkles and fine lines.
If you ask me if I’m going for the Obagi Blue Peel again, I’d say a big fat yes, and promise myself a maintenance of once every three months to keep my skin this way. Oh, with this new discovery, I couldn’t be happy enough!
For those who are interested with Obagi Blue Peel, you can check out House of Obagi’s Facebook page as there are frequent updates and promos about their services there. I deem it is the best place to have your Obagi treatments as House of Obagi has really competent, well-trained and amazing dermatologists that can best administer Obagi treatments for you. For me, I love Dr. Julie Pineda-delos Santos, as she never tires of helping out and explaining to me what I would want to ask about – a dream dermatologist that you would trust your skin with!
Oh – I am so going to ask my future daughter to take up Dermatology. That would be really cool!!!!
