One of the leaders of skin health in the world, Obagi is a clinical skincare line and offers a number of skincare systems and products that can be prescribed to you after a consultation and examination of your skin. Lindsey Silker, nurse and skin care specialist at Cosmetic Surgery Partners is trained in the full product range offered by Obagi.
Many things in life can affect the skin adversely, especially the facial skin, as this is exposed most of the time. Not only to sunlight but also to air pollution, and even before wrinkles appear the skin can appear very dull. Although many over the counter preparations make the skin look or feel nicer in the short term, to make skin better, we need a combination of medical treatments that penetrate the outer layers of the skin. Unfortunately, the skin is a natural barrier and virtually none of the over the counter products can actually penetrate the skin, but instead leave an oily residue leaving the skin softer to the touch.
What makes the Obagi system so special are the active ingredients hydroquinone and tretinoin. Hydroquinone stops the melanocytes in the skin from producing any more pigment and the tretinoin, which is a Vitamin A based ingredient, takes out any excess pigmentation already in the skin as well as removing wrinkles and rejuvenating the skin. The whole system exfoliates the skin, and the unique patented Deep Penetrating system takes these ingredients much deeper than any other skin peel.
Obagi Nu-Derm is one of the anti-ageing systems that that can help transform your skin if you have age spots, rough skin, hyperpigmentation (discoloration of the facial skin), redness or a yellowish complexion. The Nu-Derm system penetrates the skins surface to transform the skins appearance and correct the damage within.
Obagi ELASTIderm products can bring back the lift around the eye area with a revolutionary bi-mineral complex and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Then there is the ELASTIderm Décolletage system, which is an anti-ageing treatment which works by replenishing elasticity and binding collagen for resilience and skin strength. Hyperpigmentation (face only) and age spots are also reduced.
Obagi C RX systems combines hydroquinone and vitamin C to stimulate collagen production and correct signs of, and prevent further skin damage.
Obagi Blue Peel is a highly effective but safe method of damaging the superficial layers of the skin in a controlled way causing a tightening of the skin and a new layer of skin cells to grow so that when it heals the skin appears tighter and younger.
There is a range of further Obagi products available for all skin types that can complement or enhance your skin and results.
