OBAGI NU-DERM®
The Nu-Derm skin care system is unique. It combines specially developed products with medical supervision and counseling to treat your skin from the inside out. This system works on the surface to smooth roughness and correct damage, such as uneven skin tones and hyper pigmentation. It penetrates below the surface of the skin to stimulate proper cell renewal, improving circulation and helping restore your skin’s natural moisture.

OBAGI BLUE PEEL®
What is the BLUE PEEL?
The Blue Peel is an in-office procedure designed to significantly improve the appearance and health of your skin. Using a low concentration of the chemical trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special blue base to slow penetration, the Blue Peel allows your doctor to monitor the appropriate depth to effectively remove the thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin from the face or other parts of the body. These dead skin cells are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface.

BIOMEDIC – THE MICROPEEL®
Your skin is basically made up of two layers. The top layer you see is called the epidermis and measures, on average, only 1/1000 of an inch. Since this micro thin layer is often exposed to environmental effects, (i.e., sun and air pollution), it is frequently damaged. And damaged skin obscures skin clarity, even skin tone, uniform color and better texture.

Additionally, the way your skin looks is determined by the health of your second skin layer, the dermis. Making sound lifestyle decisions will go a long way towards strengthening and maintaining the dermis: a healthy diet, exercise, enough sleep, no smoking or alcohol, and use of sunblocks.

CORRECTING THE SKIN BY EXFOLIATION
To exfoliate the skin is to rid the skin of its dead cellular debris; to shed its top layer. In the past, this was accomplished with products such as facial scrubs, loofas or in some cases with traditional chemical peels. These peels are one-session procedures that require recovery time.
