What causes Acne?
Acne is a long-term skin condition generally associated with breakouts of Whiteheads, Pimples & Greasy Skin and in some severe cases can lead to scarring. Whilst acne is a treatable skin condition not all treatments are as successful as others.
Treatments for Acne
Obagi CLENZIderm M.D™ Systems are the only prescription based acne treatments that contain a patented, soluble form of 5% benzoyl peroxide (BPO) which being more easily absorbed by the skin, has been clinically proven to penetrate the follicles for effective reduction in both P. acnes bacteria and associated lesions.
Long term exposure to the sun without appropriate protection is possibly the largest contributor to the visible signs of ageing. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays can reduce the chance of sunburn, brown spots (sun spots) and faster skin ageing, whilst helping to protect against skin cancer.
The effects of too much sun
Protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays is important all year round, not just in the summer months. Extended exposure to the suns rays contributes to the ageing of the skin, with visible signs.
Sun damaged skin treatment
Obagi Sunscreens are formulated to prevent sunburn and protect your skin. Guarding against the damaging rays of the sun helps to prevent the visible signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, dry skin, sun spots, sallowness and poor skin tone.
Dry skin is probably one of the most common skin complaints and can result in redness, itching, flaking and cracked skin. There are numerous over the counter products available to treat small and large areas of dry skin. However, whilst they all work in similar ways, the results can vary.
Causes of Dry Skin
Dry skin can be a result of a wide range of environmental factors such as water quality, soaps and detergents, sun exposure, vitamin deficiencies or even some medication. Dry skin can appear to worsen during the winter months with a colder outside temperatures and warmer interiors contributing to drying out the skin.
Treatment for Dry Skin
Obagi Hydrate® Facial Moisturising products provide long lasting hydration. Obagi Hydrate® provides 8 hours of moisture and protection against dryness by using an innovative combination of shea butter, Mango Butter and avocado. Obagi Hydrate Luxe®, engineered with key biometric peptides, is an ultra-rich hydrator providing extra-strength hydration for the skin. It works overnight to nourish the skin during its daily repair cycle.
Signs Of Ageing
As your skin ages and is exposed to UVA & UVB rays, the rate at which new skin cells develop slows down. As a result, the balance of new skin cells versus old is changed. Additionally, collagen and elastin begin to break down causing the skin to loose resilience.
Causes of ageing skin
As skin ages, it develops visible signs of this ageing process; most commonly fine line, wrinkles, sagging and discolouration. Exposure of the skin to environmental stresses is inevitable, as are the associated signs.
The Obagi Nu-Derm® System is the number 1 physician dispensed prescription strength skin care system. It works by penetrating down the surface of the skin to transform the function of the skin cells at a cellular level and correct the damage from within.
