In addition to increasing the risk of skin cancer, sun damage can also speed up the aging process and cause a number of problems for your skin. While you might not be able to jump into a time machine and undo the effects of years of sun damage and the aging process, there are things you can do today to improve your skin’s texture and overall appearance.
At Suburban Eye Associates, we offer a range of med spa services like the Obagi system of skincare products for sun-damaged and aging skin. We have three convenient locations in Philadelphia, Jenkintown, and Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania.
Three treatments to target your unique needs
Your skin is complex and as unique as your personality, and requires different levels of care depending on the degree of sun damage, your age and lifestyle, and the overall condition of your skin. The Obagi system consists of three treatments that target sun damage and work to heal your skin from the inside out at the cellular level:
- Obagi Nu-Derm System for moderate to severe sun damage
- Obagi-C Rx System for mild to moderate sun damage
- Obagi Blue Peel System
Obagi products are designed to enhance the cell turnover process so that your skin sheds the damaged layers of skin and replaces them with healthy new cells more quickly for a fresher, more even and youthful complexion.
You won’t find Obagi products over the counter at your local pharmacy or in the cosmetics aisle of your favorite department store because it’s a medical grade, prescription only solution that’s only available through a doctor or licensed professional.
Benefits of Obagi for sun-damaged skin
Some of the benefits of Obagi skin care products include:
- Smoother skin
- Increased hydration
- Less freckles and age spots
- Collagen and elastin boost
- Quicker cell turnover
- Less fine lines and wrinkles
- Plumper, younger looking skin
Once your skin suffers sun damage, it can be very difficult if not impossible to correct. When you factor in the normal effects of the aging process, most over the counter skincare products offer limited protection and skin renewal at the surface level.
The biggest advantage of the Obagi system is that it penetrates every layer of your skin and works to enhance your skin’s natural renewal process at the cellular level for turbocharged results.
