PROFESSIONAL SKIN CARE LINE TO PREVENT AGEING, USING TRANSFORMATIONAL SYSTEMS FOR TARGETED SKIN CONCERN SOLUTIONS.
Obagi is a medical skin care range that was developed by Zein Obagi a dermatologist and world-renowned skin care expert. The Obagi range operates
from the principal correction, stimulation, pigment control, hydration and sun protection. The aim is to combine products to maximise results.
To regenerate and repair skin the steps are:
Renewing the epidermis (get rid of the old dead skin top skin).
Enhance skin thickness (evening skin thickness everywhere and improve the disorganised collagen).
Reduce discolouration (ensure skin colour is even and healthy, improve pigmentation)
Restore natural hydration
Improve cellular function and repair DNA (slow down ageing)
