Obagi Blue Peel Cost
The Obagi blue peel is applied in one to four layers. Some physicians will charge $100 to $200 for each layer, while others charge a flat fee for the chemical peel. A light Obagi blue peel (meaning one to two layers) ranges from $300 to $800. A medium or deep treatment (more than two layers) can cost $1,000 or more. Prices tend to be higher in warm, sunny states like Florida and California (where patients tend to have more sun-caused skin damage).
Many dermatologists encourage their clients to follow a pre-treatment skincare regimen using Obagi Nu-Derm products, which adds a one-time cost of $100 to $300.
The Obagi blue peel is sold to doctors as a kit. Only authorized medical professionals can buy the Obagi blue peel. One kit provides enough blue cream base and specialized cleanser for six treatments. What the package doesn't contain is TCA - the chemical that makes your skin peel. Obagi blue peels require 15% or 20% TCA concentration, which doctors supply and mix into the Obagi cream independently.
Doctors can purchase a box of Obagi blue peel supplies for $475, which breaks down to about $80 for each kit. The price you pay is based on the doctor's personal fees, whether a painkiller or topical numbing agent is used, and the additional cost of the TCA. Most doctors don't charge extra when a higher concentration of TCA is used.
