Obagi is a revolutionary skin care treatment program carried only in physician''s offices. In our experience, we have found that this skin care program is best used once a year by women over the age of 40. The products combined with Retin A can help you to keep the collagen in our skins making us appear younger and more vibrant. After a treatment of Obagi, we then recommend using MD Formulations to hydrate the skin. Come in and talk to us about this well-known program and know that we give 10% off refills, and we are less expensive (by hundreds of dollars) than other doctor''s offices.
You weren''t born with skin problems
When you are a baby, your skin is perfect. It is soft, firm and glows with health. But as you mature, usually sometime in your 30s, your skin begins to lose its ability to stay healthy. Collagen breaks down. The skin loses its elasticity. Cell turnover and the flow of moisture from deep within begins to slow. The damage gets worse from sun, stress, environmental assaults and smoking. The results may be tight, dry blotchy skin. Even wrinkles and discolorations may develop.
The goal of the Obagi Nu-Derm system is to create soft, radiant-looking skin, to increase skin tolerance to environmental assault and to restore normal skin functions. The Nu-Derm system corrects surface discoloration and blemishes. Importantly, it also penetrates into the skin to stimulate skin cell renewal, improve circulation and help rebuild collagen. The normal barrier function of the skin is restored, making the skin less sensitive and better able to hydrate properly. After six weeks (one skin cycle), new skin cells emerge to the surface.
The Nu-Derm System is UniqueThe Nu-Derm system recognizes that the skin is a living organ with interacting functions. Overall skin health cannot be achieved if the treatment is amined just at the elimination of a single skin system. To restore and maintain skin health, the program must address the causes of the problem and solve them. The Nu-Derm system of correction and stimulation will:
|• Diminish fine lines and wrinkles||• Reduce age spots and/or hyperpigmentation|
|• Increase smoothness||• Increase the skin''s own ability to hold moisture|
|• Reduce pore size||• Increase skin tolerance to all external factors|
|• Improve elasticity||• Generate a balanced, even skin tone|
|• Normalize oil production|
Conscientious use of the Nu-Derm system as prescribed by your physician helps repair prior skin damage. You will notice that your skin is smoother and clearer, with a healthy, even glow. Your skin is supple, firm and naturally hydrated. Most importantly, your skin is healthier and more resilient.
What You Should Expect
This is the time in which the damaged top layer of skin is replaced by a new layer of healthier cells. It takes about six weeks for a "newborn" cell to reach the top layer and exfoliate.
You will experience one or more of these symptoms:
It is very important to stay with the program. These reactions are a sign that skin restoration is in process. The Nu-Derm system is accelerating the cell turnover to actually alter the thickness of the rough top layer of the skin. This phase is especially important for sensitive skin because, ultimately, it will make it less sensitive and more tolerant to environmental aggression.
By the end of this phase, your efforts will pay off with your skin starting to look more translucent and smooth.
Permanent cosmetics are the choice of most women who are tired of or unable to draw their eyebrows, eyeliner and lipliner on daily with accuracy. What a great investment to yourself! You can improve your looks with fuller lips, emphasize your eyes and look younger permanently. This type of makeup can help clients who have some disfigurements from sun, stretch marks, scars, aging, cancer, chemotherapy, allopecia, vitiligo or surgeries.
Want to look glamourous all the time? How would it feel to wake up with your eyebrows, eyeliner and lip liner on? We gals that have had it done say "Fantastic" — half our staff has permanent makeup on. Not only will you love not having to fuss with your makeup daily, but you will have the perfect lines that won''t vary from day to day. And think of how nice it will be to know your makeup won''t drip and disappear with steamy weather, hot flashes, showers, swimming or a sudden downpour. Today''s permanent makeup techniques are so much more advanced than the previous tattooing types. This procedure is known as derma pigmentation and can last several years with occasional touchups needed.
To offer you this new service, we have added a new staff member, Michelle, who is a licensed Aesthetitician, and a makeup artist with an art background and five years experience in permanent makeup. Michelle is available on Thursdays for procedures and consultation from 9 AM to 7 PM, and occasionally on Saturday. Consultations are $50, deducted from the procedure if you make an appointment. Procedures available are:
As we age, we can''t see as well to put on our makeup and our arthritis or eyes may interfere with that perfect line we are trying to draw. We also lose some of our facial definitions and shapes, which permanent makeup can correct, thus enhancing appearance, saving time and creating a more youthful look. This may be one of the best investments that you will make in yourself. Let Michelle, with your input, design the best shape and color for you. Treatments begin with a topical ointment applied to numb the skin. After the treatment you may see more dramatic color and after a few days you will see the soft natural looks that you have always wanted.
