Once upon a time, but not so long ago, the medical profession knew a lot less about skin care. It is hard to imagine there was a time in the 20th century when skin care treatments were not really customized by skin types, and healthy skin upkeep was almost ignored, compared to extensive studies on disease skin.
Then in the late 1980’s Dr. Zein Obagi revolutionized skin care. Considered by many to be the Inventor of Skin Health Care, “He was the first to conceive new skin as a science and coined the term Science of Skin Health which defined skin care to include creating and maintaining healthy skin.”
A board certified dermatologist, Dr. Obagi is also the author of Obagi Skin Health Restoration & Rejuvenation (1999) and The Art of Skin Health Restoration & Rejuvenation: The Science of Clinical Practice (2015).
OBAGI: Pioneering Skin Health
His definition of healthy skin is skin that is “naturally smooth, strong, firm, even-toned, hydrated and free of disease.” His research led physicians to seek appropriate solutions to achieve healthy skin as opposed to simply seeking out the diagnosis of diseases. His approach went beyond the surface of the skin to the cellular level to build up and maintain the factors that create healthy skin from the inside out.
“His pioneering definition also included a Skin Classification System, enabling physicians to determine the best treatments and predict patient response based on an individual’s ethnicity and skin type.” Today women can hardly imagine treating their skin without finding products formulated for their skin type.
It is from the legacy of this great skin care scientist that OBAGI Nu-Derm and many other Obagi skin care products grew.
Genuine OBAGI skincare is only available through medical establishments such as cosmetic surgery clinics and medical spas like Orlando Cosmetic Surgery and Orlando Cosmetic Surgery Med Spa. We do not advise patients or clients to seek it online or in the backroom of beauty salons because there are diluted products and counterfeit items out there.
Likewise, you should only use OBAGI as prescribed by a member of the medical staff in a true medical spa, cosmetic surgery clinic or dermatology clinic.
A Valentine for Our Patients and Friends
In fact, we feel so strongly that you should have a skin care professional involved with your OBAGI Nu-Derm purchase, that if you purchase your OBAGI Nu-Derm kit this month, we have a special gift for you:
During Valentine month, our licensed aesthetician, Lea, will give you a rejuvenating OBAGI Blue Radiance Skin Peel at no charge, but only when you buy your Nu-Derm Kit.
We are certain you will be getting a Valentine e-mail about this, but we wanted to make sure you knew about it in case you did not see it.
You will be surprised at how much the rejuvenating peel facial session will improve the texture of your skin and impart a healthy glow to the surface of your skin, but remember it is only a free service if you purchase your Nu-Derm Kit.
So, let us review the amazing contents of this top-of-the-line, state-of-the-art skincare kit.
What Is In the OBAGI Nu-Derm Kit?
By the way, this month’s kit is full-sized, not the little travel kit. Your OBAGI Nu-Derm Kit, available at our regular price, includes 7 skin-restoring products, designed to counteract aging of your skin:
1. Foaming gel will gently cleanse your skin.
2. The Nu-Derm toner will not dry out your skin, and will balance the pH of your skin.
3. Clear: This is an incredible anti-aging, skin-tone-correcting hydroquinone formula.
4. Exfoderm: You will find this lotion light weight. It exfoliates old cells away and reveals bright new ones.
5. Blender: This product brightens sunspots, age-spots, and discoloration.
6. Hydrate: Soothe your skin with this deeply moisturizing cream.
7. Sun Shield: As the Orlando Cosmetic Surgery Clinic has been advising you for years, sunscreen is vital to protect your skin from the destructive rays of the sun. “Sun Shield” brings you sunscreen protection in a sheer matte finish.
Be sure you call Lea at 407-681-3223, and schedule your complimentary OBAGI Blue Radiance Mask session when you visit Orlando Cosmetic Surgery Med Spa to buy this wonderful Kit.
