Look Radiant With Obagi
Obagi Skin Care and other professional cosmeceutical brands and products are now available (for the most part) for at-home use; however, there are times when the skin can become so dull and devitalized that it can indeed be in dire need of an in-office professional treatment. When and if that particular time comes for you, there is a great option out there for those of us who want a professional/clinical treatment, but one with little or no down time.
Obagi Blue Peel aka Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is a great in-office treatment that takes virtually less than an hour at a medical spa or derm’s office, requires little or no down time at all (meaning it’s considered basically a “lunch-time peel”) and provides extreme (yet relatively gentle) exfoliation resulting in superior revitalization. It is the perfect peel for most skin types and results such as tightening, brightening and smoother skin are reported after just one peel. Some conditions require up to six peels but many are satisfied after only one.
When I’ve had them done in the past I love to maintain my new revitalized skin with other Obagi products such as the Nu-Derm Regimen and my absolute favorite Obagi line which is their Professional C Serums. Obagi Professional C Serum comes in four strengths which is a great way to introduce your skin to potent topical C. The Professional C 5% is gentle enough for the delicate skin around the eyes. The Obagi Professional-C10% a perfect starter serum for antioxidant protection, Professional-C 15% Strength transforms most skin types, and lastly super potent topical C serum, Obagi Professional-C 20% Strength is superb for tolerant skin.
Some of these treatments and serums can be a little harsh on the skin for certain people, so be sure to follow directions carefully. And another great tip to offset some of the irritation and keep the skin soft and supple is to use a gentle moisturizing cream (when applicable) such as Atopalm Intensive Moisturizing Cream to help boost and maintain the skin's moisture barrier function.
