Obagi Skin Care in Atlanta, GA
Vein & Skin Laser Center offers Obagi® for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia. Obagi® is a prescription strength product that transforms your skin. The three main Obagi® skin care lines are Obagi Nu-Derm®, Obagi Condition & Enhance® and Obagi® Blue Peel.
Obagi Nu-Derm® Systems
When it comes to transforming aging skin, nothing compares to Obagi Nu-Derm®.
We all experience occasional sunburns, regular sun exposure, hormonal changes, stress, and environmental pollution; all of these factors contribute to the signs of premature aging. The Nu-Derm System has been formulated to improve the signs of aging at the cellular level.
How it works
What are the effects of photodamage on your skin?
As your skin ages and is exposed to UVA and UVB rays, the turnover of skin cells slows significantly, throwing off the balance between the growth of healthy new cells and the sloughing of old, damaged cells. Additionally, collagen and elastin begin to break down, causing the skin to lose resilience and resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Daily exposure to UV light accelerates this aging process and may cause uneven coloring.
How does the Nu-Derm System transform your skin?
The Nu-Derm System penetrates below the surface of your skin to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level, and correct the damage within.
Using a specific dose and frequency that’s recommended specifically by your skin care professional for your skin condition, the prescription-strength system exfoliates old skin, leaving healthy, new skin.
Obagi Condition & Enhance® Systems
As the #1 prescription-strength, physician-dispensed skin care system, the Condition & Enhance System utilizes Penetrating Therapeutics™ and is only available through a skin care professional, such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Unlike over-the-counter retail products, this system is clinically proven to address age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation (discoloration), erythema (redness), and future skin damage, while transforming the quality of your skin on a daily basis.
The environment, the sun, and the normal aging process all contribute to the fine lines, wrinkles and other facial concerns we work so hard to correct. While facial treatments and procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and fillers focus on specific areas of improvement, the Condition & Enhance System is the only prescription-strength skin care system that’s proven to collaborate with these procedures to make your overall results even better.
Phases of Transformation
As you begin using the Condition & Enhance System, your skin will undergo four phases of transformation.
Phase 1: Out with the Old
Typically lasts: Four To Six weeks
The Condition & Enhance System uses proven formulas that penetrate the layers of your skin to promote cellular turnover and maximize the results of your procedure.
Phase 2: In with the New
Typically lasts: Six to Eight weeks
Smoother, softer, clearer skin is created.
Phase 3: Healthy Glow
Typically lasts: Six to Eight weeks
Your skin cells are in the process of transformation.
Phase 4: The New You
Typically lasts: The Rest of Your Life, with proper maintenance
The Condition & Enhance System has transformed your skin. Proper maintenance is crucial to long-term success.
Obagi® Blue Peel
The most intense Obagi® product is the Blue Peel, which must be applied by a physician. A bluish tint will remain on the skin for twelve to twenty-four hours, and your skin will begin to peel within a few days. Downtime after a Blue Peel lasts for three to ten days.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Obagi® and products purchased at stores?
The difference is that Obagi® products are prescription-strength. Other products do not correct skin problems, but only mask them. Obagi® corrects problems and leaves you with new, healthy skin.
Why should Obagi® products be used together?
Each Obagi® product is designed to complement the others to transform your skin. When used as a system, the products work together to balance the pH level and penetrate the layers of skin effectively.
What can be expected while using Obagi® products?
Your skin will go through several stages. The first stage involves exfoliation, so some redness, flaking and peeling will occur for four to six weeks. During the second phase, your skin will build up a tolerance against flaking and peeling. Once this process is completed, fresh, smooth skin will be revealed. The third stage involves an increase of collagen and elastin, and your skin will look refreshed and renewed. Skin tone is balanced, and your face looks younger and healthier.
While cosmetic improvement is often a factor in seeking Obagi® treatments, Vein & Skin Laser Center understands that facial rejuvenation is often the primary concern for patients in Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
Our physicians use advanced diagnostic techniques to choose the best non-surgical or minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of skin to ensure that both aesthetic concerns and painful symptoms are addressed simultaneously, effectively and safely.
