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 unwelcome signs of aging including: fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and age spots, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and loss of natural skin hydration. We offer products by Obagi® for our Salt Lake City, Provo, and Orem, Utah patients who want to fight these signs of aging and achieve healthy, youthful looking skin. Patients who have undergone surgical procedures such as facelift near Salt Lake City can enhance their results using the Obagi skincare line.
How It Works:
The Obagi Nu-Derm System or Obagi -C Rx System, a physician-prescribed skin care system, accelerates the cellular turnover. This System penetrates below the skin's surface to correct damage in all layers of the skin (the stratum corneum, the epidermis and the dermis). 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. The system triggers a Therapeutic Cascade™ that:
- Pushes fresher cells to the surface faster, for smoother skin, reduced wrinkles and increased tolerance.
- Corrects current pigmentation (freckles and age spots) and prevents the appearance of new pigmentation.
- Promotes more uniform cells at the deepest layer for better skin structure and balanced, even skin tone.
- Increases collagen and elastin for firmer, more resilient skin.
- Increases nutrients' natural hydration and circulation for supple, healthy-looking skin.
OBAGI-C Rx System:
The Obagi-C Rx System delivers Photolumines skin, regulates the production of melanin producing cells, evens tone, resulting in more radiant skin. The Obagi-C Rx System enhances collagen production- skin is smoother, brighter with reduced fine lines and wrinkles. This system minimizes skin cell damage from the environment, protecting it from free radicals, maintaining Photolumines Skin. Corrects and restores balance to lack-luster skin and dark patches caused by photo damage - brightening skin from the inside out.
What is OBAGI Blue Peel?
The Obagi Blue Peel is an in-office (or occasionally surgical center) procedure designed to significantly improve the appearance and health of your skin. Using a low concentration of the chemical trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special blue base to slow penetration, the Obagi Blue Peel allows your doctor to monitor the appropriate depth to effectively remove the thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin from the face or other parts of the body. These dead skin cells are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin's own clarity and tightness to resurface. The procedure is performed by Dr. Rose, who has specialized training and experience with this highly effective peel.
