Over-the-counter skin care products work well for many women, and can be effective in maintaining a healthy-looking complexion, as well as treating moderate signs of aging. But for some types of skin, the smart choice is to go for the gold — Obagi skincare, the gold standard in facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Maguire is proud to offer his patients in Louisville and throughout Kentucky this remarkable skin care system, a suite of products that soothe skin, smooth fine lines, tame hyperpigmentation, vanquish imperfections and restore a youthful glow.
Because Obagi products contain prescription ingredients, they are available only through plastic surgery and dermatology practices. The medical-grade strength is one of the secrets to Obagi’s effectiveness. Recommended products include:
Obagi Nu-Derm Systems, which includes a cleanser, toner, exfoliating lotion and 4 percent hydroquinone solution, a powerful skin lightening agent.
Obagi 360, which excels in preserving younger skin and includes an exfoliating cleanser, moisturizer and half-percent concentration of retinol.
ClenziDerm, which targets acne and includes a foaming cleanser with salicylic acid, in addition to a benzoyl peroxide cream.
Obagi C RX, a skin care kit focused on reversing common signs of aging. This line includes a cleansing gel with vitamin C and amino acids, a hydroquinone-based serum and night cream, and a moisturizer containing glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.
KèraPhine Body Smoothing Lotion, which is 15 percent glycolic acid and 5 percent ammonium lactate, which has mild antibacterial properties.
ELASTIderm Eye Products, which is extremely effective in revitalizing the eye area by erasing fine lines.
The Obagi product line also includes special moisturizers, retinol products and sunscreen lotions. In addition, two popular Obagi rejuvenating procedures, the Obagi Blue Peel and the Obagi Facial, are performed in our office.
Obagi cleansers, moisturizers and exfoliants will make a dramatic difference when applied daily. Cleansers are important for clearing away dead skin, removing oil and preventing blockage in pores. Moisturizing your skin each day helps preserve a smooth, supple look.
Obagi exfoliants work by abrading the dry surface layer of your complexion and stimulating the production of new skin cells, as well as collagen, the natural protein that gives skin strength and flexibility and helps it resist stretching, drooping and sagging. These topical products target fine lines, minor wrinkles, age spots, sun spots and other blemishes, improve skin tone and reduce the size of pores.
