Beautiful skin is healthy skin. It is firm and smooth, with even skin tone and glowing color. It is free from medical problems and it is normal in function and tolerance. We are born with healthy skin, but time, the sun, and environmental assaults eventually take their toll on our skin. The skin is a remarkable, living organ with the incredible ability to renew itself from the inside out. All it needs is the right kind of treatment to help it remember how. That’s the treatment you’ll find with the Obagi Nuderm Skin Care Program.
As you age and your skin incurs the abuse of daily living (such as sun, stress, pollution), the cell turnover rate slows down. This means that the new cells take longer to form and reach the top. The old cells accumulate and stay on the surface longer. As the stratum corneum thickens and the area of new cells shrink, skin becomes less healthy. You begin to notice those unwelcomed signs of aging including: fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and age spots, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and loss of natural skin hydration.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System, a physician – prescribed care system, accelerates the cellular turnover. This system penetrates below the skin’s surface to correct damage in all layers of the skin. It corrects functions of the skin at the cellular level, to transform skin’s cellular function to help it look and act younger and healthier. This system pushes fresher cells, corrects current pigmentation, promotes more uniform cells, increases collagen and elastin and increases nutrients for healthier looking skin.
If you're looking to accelerate the transformation of your skin and are interested in a chemical peel procedure, then the
Obagi Blue Peel System may be right for you. Obagi Blue Peel is conducted in your Physician's office and does not typically require sedation.
This Peel is used in conjunction with the
Obagi Nu-Derm System to enhance the effects of the peel and to sustain healthier, younger-looking skin. Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin's appearance should continue to improve for the next four to six weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking.
Skin health is a revolutionary idea. Most products concentrate on the concept of skin care- treating symptoms, providing surface moisture and covering up blemishes. But the only way to reclaim the health of you skin is to reach below the surface and work at a cellular level. The Obagi system combines specially developed products with medical supervision and counseling to treat your skin from the inside out. This program works on the surface to smooth roughness and correct damage like uneven skin tone and hyper pigmentation. It also penetrates below the surface to stimulate cell renewal, improve circulation and help restore your skin’s natural moisture. The overall results of the Obagi Nu-Derm Skin Care System? Healthier Skin!!
