At Suburban Plastic Surgery we offer a wide range of skin rejuvenating techniques as well as doctor prescriptive skin care lines. One of the skin care lines offered is Obagi skin care.

The Obagi Nu-Derm system is different than any other. It incorporates specially developed products to treat your skin from the cellular level up to the surface. Along with medical supervision and consultation you can expect to have improved skin texture, color, and circulation. It works below the surface to stimulate cell renewal and helps to restore your skins natural moisture.There are three distinct cycles of skin restoration, the first being the Reaction Phase. In this cycle the initial correction and stimulation occurs. In the reaction phase, a new layer of healthier cells replaces the damaged top layer of skin.

In the second phase, the Tolerance Phase, correction and stimulation continue and you will begin to notice a substantial improvement in your skins texture and color.

In the third phase, the Corrected Phase, skin has now reached its healthiest point of skin correction. You will notice a more youthful appearance as many of your original skin problems have been corrected.

Your skin is now ready for maintenance and as this routine of skin care becomes second nature, it will be very easy to maintain.

Obagi skin care was developed for all skin types and is only available through a physician’s office trained in the Obagi method.

For patients that require deeper exfoliation the Obagi Blue Peel may be beneficial. This is an in-office procedure done by the doctor which allows the use of low dose acids(TCA) mixed with a specially formulated blue colored base to penetrate deep into the tissues. Dead skin cells peel over the course of 5-7 days allowing for a more healthier skin texture. It allows the skins own natural color and clarity to shine through with little more than a week of exfoliation. You must be on the Obagi Nu-Derm system for a minimum of 6 weeks prior to Blue Peel procedures.
