Depending on your unique skin care needs, you might try the following Obagi systems to improve your complexion.
CLENZIderm M.D. System
Acne can appear at any age. The CLENZIderm M.D. System is designed to combat adult acne by working deep within the skin to stop acne before it appears. This three-step system is available in two formulations. Choose the normal to dry system or the normal to oily system, depending on your skin’s needs.

The Nu-Derm System by Obagi is ideal for those who are concerned about the signs of aging on the face, such as sallowness, hyperpigmentation, loss of elasticity, age spots, poor texture, and fine lines and wrinkles. Also available in different formulations based on skin type, this system includes multiple products for cleansing, smoothing out the complexion, lightening hyperpigmentation, hydrating the skin, and protecting the skin from further sun damage.
Obagi-C Rx System
Even before the signs of aging become obvious, you can take great care of your skin with the Obagi-C Rx System. It provides early therapy for skin damage to promote radiant, smoother, and softer skin.

Face lifts and wrinkle creams are often thought of as treatments for individuals of advancing age. However, dermatology and plastic surgery experts tend to agree that it’s never too soon to start thinking about the changes in skin that come with age. These changes include the loss of elasticity, the development of wrinkles, and the appearance of areas of hyperpigmentation.
Fortunately, by caring for your skin throughout your life, you can reduce the appearance of signs of aging on your countenance. Watch this video, presented by Obagi, for more information about the importance of caring for skin at every age.

Undergoing plastic surgery can be life changing. The right surgical procedure can help boost your self-esteem and allow you to feel confident in your appearance. However, all surgeries come with risks, and it’s important to approach your decision to have surgery seriously. Having a consultation with your plastic surgeon in which you ask all of your questions about your surgery is a crucial part of preparing for the procedure. Use this time to ask your surgeon about his or her background, what kind of results you can expect, and what your recovery will be like. This is also a chance to find out what goes into preparing for surgery, including any lab work you may need performed or medications you need to adjust. This infographic from Danville’s Blackhawk Plastic Surgery covers 10 must-ask questions for your plastic surgeon.

Microdermabrasion is a gentle, effective way of exfoliating the top layers of the skin to provide for cell turnover and the drastic reduction or elimination of imperfections. An esthetician can help you decide if microdermabrasion might be right for you.
Before having microdermabrasion, review the procedure with the esthetician. He or she will evaluate your skin, determine your skin type, and talk to you about your skincare concerns. You’ll learn what’s involved with microdermabrasion and you’ll set reasonable expectations for the results. The consultation is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you have.
Microdermabrasion can treat a range of skincare concerns. Many people have this treatment because they suffer from active acne or acne scars. It’s capable of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and it can reduce or even eliminate the appearance of large pores. Microdermabrasion could also be right for you if you’re concerned about areas of hyperpigmentation, such as those caused by sun damage. Additionally, you may wish to schedule a microdermabrasion treatment if your skin appears dull or feels rough.
Before having microdermabrasion, be sure to tell your esthetician about your medical history. Microdermabrasion is safe and generally well tolerated. However, it might not be the best choice for you if you have facial warts, herpetic lesions, psoriasis, lupus, keloid scars, or very fragile capillaries. If you have a medical condition, your esthetician will work with you to determine the best treatment for your needs.
To learn whether microdermabrasion might be a good choice for you, schedule a consultation with the esthetician at Blackhawk Plastic Surgery. Our state-of-the-art facility also provides plastic surgeries such as tummy tucks, liposuction, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and face lifts. You can reach us by calling (925) 272-4855 or by visiting us on the Web.

If you’re looking for an alternative to the typical chemical peel, then try the customizable pigment balancing peel! This unique formulation is a type of chemical peel that directly targets areas of hyperpigmentation and other areas of photo-damage that can prematurely age your skin. The result is a younger, more even, and brighter complexion. As an added bonus, this remarkable peel facilitates the natural production of collagen to support your skin and reduce wrinkles.
The pigment balancing peel consists of four to six treatment sessions. During your treatment session, the esthetician will customize the peel to suit your individual needs. The formula consists of glycolic acids and L-ascorbic acid, which are potent ingredients to encourage cell turnover, skin renewal, and skin brightening.
Residents of the Bay Area can schedule a consultation for a pigment balancing peel or another customizable facial treatment by calling Blackhawk Plastic Surgery at (925) 272-4855. Our premier plastic surgery office also provides artistic face lifts, rhinoplasty, and liposuction.
