It is important to consider improving your skin quality, addressing fine lines and any pigment spots, as part of any approach to facial rejuvenation. Medical grade skin care (that can be applied at home) is an excellent approach with a proven track record of success and low complication rate. The Obagi range have been chosen by Mr Pacifico and his team as an excellent brand for his patients.
Obagi skin care products contain prescription-strength formulations and come in a range of Skin Care Systems tailored to suit each individual’s needs. For example the Obagi Nu-Dermrangeaims to correct the signs of ageing; and the CLENZIderm System is designed to treat acne. Other ranges include Blue Peels that are chemical peels that are performed at Mr Pacifico’s clinic, Purity Bridge itself.
WHAT DOES TREATMENT INVOLVE?
Each Obagi System works in its own way, and a bespoke routine will be planned to suit your skin after a skin analysis by one Mr Pacifico’s expert team.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Obagi Skin Care has a reliable and proven track record producing consistent results and high patient satisfaction.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The skin care systemsare designed to be applied over several weeks, in contrast to the chemical peels that are repeated 4-6 times in the clinic to achieve the best results.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?
During the treatment process your skin may appear red, similar to having mild sunburn. The redness is a temporary effect and will settle down following completion of the treatment course.
WHAT ARE THE SUCCESS RATES
Obagi Skin Care systems have a high success rate, contributing to their popularity with patients over time.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Apart from any specific instructions provided for you at your consultation, the main rule is to avoid direct sunlight during your treatment process. If there is good weather, you should wearsunblock and a wide brimmed hat.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS?
Complications rates are low, but can occur with over-treatment – it is therefore very important to follow the instructions provided very carefully. If you think you might have applied to much treatment, it is important to contact Mr Pacifico’s team for advice.
WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE OBAGI SKIN CARE TREATMENT?
