MediSpa : Skin Care Products
Beauty is much more than skin deep and at the Center for Plastic Surgery we’re committed to the overall health and well-being of our patients. Because of this, we’re proud to offer Obagi Medical Products, skin care products so advanced they’re actually called skin health products.
What is Obagi?
Obagi is an extensive line of clinically-proven skin health products designed to help our patients and clients revitalize, enhance and maintain beautiful skin for life. Obagi is headquartered in Long Beach, California, and has been developing, marketing and selling proprietary skin care systems in the physician-dispensed skin care market since 1988.
What makes Obagi different from other skin care lines?
Obagi has been featured in magazines, such as Redbook and InStyle, as well as on the Rachael Ray show, because of its clinically proven anti-aging results. Since its inception, Obagi has been developing skin health products using its own Penetrating Therapeutics ™ technology, designed to improve penetration of its own prescription-strength creams and serums – as well as enhance the effectiveness of cosmetic procedures – to greatly increase results.
What kind of products does Obagi offer?
While any of Obagi’s solutions would be effective as a stand-alone product, Obagi has always specialized in the creation of full skin health systems. Obagi is most famous for its Nu-Derm System, which penetrates to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level to increase the production of healthy new skin cells for a fresh, rejuvenated appearance that works to undo the signs of aging. The Nu-Derm system offers foaming gel, cleansers, toners, exfoliators, hyperpigmentation treatments, sunscreens that also treat age spots, eye creams, moisturizers and a powerful acne treatment available by prescription.
In addition to its flagship Nu-Derm system, Obagi produces a Condition and Enhance system designed to enhance cosmetic procedure results, a line of Professional C-Serums that provide users with maximum antioxidants protection, and Obagi Blue Peel, an effective chemical peel procedure. We can give you plenty of information on these as well as other Obagi products and systems.
Why is Obagi only available from accredited medical institutions like the Center for Plastic Surgery?
The active ingredients in Obagi’s skin health products are pharmaceutical grade, meaning they are extremely potent, powerful and effective. In order to ensure that you get the results you want and deserve, these products are best dispensed by skin health professionals such as plastic surgeons, MediSpa staff, and dermatologists who can help select the right products and systems for your specific, individualized needs.
Additionally, because Obagi has been an industry leader for so long, there is a threat of knock-off or unaccredited products being sold online or through other unauthorized channels. Because Obagi puts your health and safety first, the company is upfront about the fact that its legitimate products are only available in the physician-dispensed market.
At the Center for Plastic Surgery, we’re incredibly picky about the skin care lines and products we carry. Our reputation for excellence has come from years of putting our patients and clients first and offering only the best in everything from our most complex surgical procedure to our selection of anti-aging skin care products. We’re always in search of the highest-rated skin care lines backed by the newest and most trusted science. Known for their innovative approach to skin health research and the recipient of such high-profile awards as the InStyle Magazine Best Beauty Buys of 2011, SkinCeuticals is a natural fit for the Center for Plastic Surgery.
What kind of anti-aging products does SkinCeuticals offer?
In addition to its cleansers, toners and moisturizers, SkinCeuticals takes a full-spectrum approach to anti-aging, offering complete lines of both preventative and corrective anti-aging solutions. But as committed as SkinCeuticals is to preventing signs of aging, it’s even more committed to preventing skin cancer. It offers an array of sunscreens ranging from SPF 20 to SPF 50 in a variety of formulas to suit all skin types, including delicate sunscreens for sensitive skin, moisturizing sunscreens for dry skin, water and sweat-resistant sunscreens even tinted sunscreens. The broad-spectrum, UVA/UVB protection provided by SkinCeuticals sunscreens work in conjunction with the award-winning SkinCeuticals antioxidants line to block the damaging free radicals from UV exposure to prevent the visible signs of photo-aging and promote optimal skin health.
For those beautiful faces that are a little further along in the aging process, while we hope you’re still using the sunscreen and antioxidant products to protect yourself from sun damage and to minimize your skin cancer risk, SkinCeuticals also has solutions designed to undo the visible signs of aging. SkinCeuticals’ creams, serums, and masques have been specially formulated to lighten age spots, regulate pigment, improve skin’s texture, restore elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fight acne, resurface and replenish. The SkinCeuticals corrective line also offers specialized solutions for the lip and eye areas, as well as Retinol night creams.
How do I know if SkinCeuticals is right for me?
That’s where we come in at the Center for Plastic Surgery. SkinCeuticals is one of the widest, most comprehensive skin care lines we offer, and while we’re confident our MediSpa staff can find the perfect SkinCeuticals products for your specific, individualized needs, we do offer other elite skin care lines. A consultation or quick Q&A with our staff will get you set up with the skin care routine that will maximize your health and keep you looking and feeling young and fresh.
Lycopene, an antioxidant extracted from tomatoes, has time and time again been shown to have results-proven anti-aging benefits. Creams containing Lycopene, such as Paphos, help protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Lycopene also helps enhance and strengthen the skin to prevent further damage and reverses the signs of aging. Paphos is a 100% natural, botanical skin care line formulated and perfected in Italy that uses natural Lycopene, producing a more powerful antioxidant/anti-aging effect on the skin.
The Paphos advantage vs. other skin care lines:
Paphos skin care products have been developed and approved by four experienced plastic surgeons with a MediSpa at their practice. The approval process is performed before any products are released to the public, allowing for 100% guarantee and satisfaction. The top priority for all Paphos products is that they are completely natural and botanical.
Paphos Lycopene products for preventing the signs of aging:
• Lycopene Crema Rinnovante is a luxurious, fast-absorbing, skin-protecting, hydrating therapeutic cream. In addition to being rich with Lycopene, it also contains a next-generation Hyaluronic Acid to produce a solution that provides deep and long-lasting hydration. Together, it keeps skin fresh and helps guard against the harsh sun and other harmful elements.
• Paphos Eye and Lip Serum is the perfect product if you are looking to target the most sensitive areas of your face. The serum relaxes your facial muscles in a natural way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes, lips and forehead.
Paphos products for damaged skin:
Paphos Dermopeel Cream provides you with a renewed appearance and is specifically formulated to reverse the effects of aging. Containing 100% natural emollients, moisturizers, skin brighteners and antioxidants, it rapidly penetrates deep into the dermis to improve the skin’s natural ability to repair and restore. Designed for use anywhere on the face, the Dermopeel Cream noticeably reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves overall skin tone, hydrates, and evens and lightens skin discoloration and imperfections as a result of aging, sun damage and environmental toxins.
