Skin Benefits with Obagi

If you are looking for a tried-and-true product to improve the appearance of your skin, look no further than Obagi.
The brand’s first skincare system, Obagi Nu-Derm, was launched in 1988. Today, Obagi’s skin care systems are considered some of the most effective treatments on the market for combatting hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and skin aging.
“Each line in the Obagi family addresses different issues,” Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center, said.
The Nu-Derm System, for instance, is hydroquinone-based, making it ideal for targeting skin discolorations. Using a specific sequence of dosage and frequency recommended specifically by an Eterna MedSpa skincare professional, the prescription-strength system exfoliates old skin leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier. Clients typically see results in about three months.
Obagi’s Retin-A Tretinoin is a powerful treatment for preventing wrinkles and aging skin.
“This is the best anti-aging cream out there. It helps with skin cell turnover and stimulates collagen,” Malinowski said. And the Suzan Obagi line is designed specifically for patients with sensitive skin. “The products are dermatologist-tested, hyper allergenic, and contain no parabens, fragrance or dyes,” Malinowski said.
Other Obagi products include the 360 Cleanser, an exfoliating cleanser, as well as Hydrate and Hydrate Lux, moisturizers that hydrate the skin without leaving it feeling greasy.
Want to protect your skin from sun damage? Obagi can help there, too. The Sun Shield line provides a high level of protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Obagi’s Vitamin C serums help to protect skin from free radicals which can accelerate the appearance of aging.
