Prescription Strength Skin Care Products

Young, healthy skin renews itself every 5 to 6 weeks. Sun damage, aging, stress, trauma, pollution, and hormonal changes slow down this renewal process.   As we age, cellular turnover slows down, causing a thick buildup of dead skin cells. This results in uneven texture, making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable.

The Epidermis: A healthy epidermis (the top layer of the skin) is 3 to 4 sheets of paper thick and acts like the smooth top sheet of a freshly made bed. The epidermis provides protection from the environment and from toxins. During cellular turnover, cells migrate from the bottom to the top, renewing the epidermis. The skin you see in the mirror reflects the damage caused by the sun, aging, hormonal changes and the environment. Brown spots, age spots, and freckling are common signs of damaged skin. Increasing cellular turnover is the answer to younger, healthier looking skin.

The Dermis:
The second layer of skin is the dermis and is 10 times thicker than the epidermis. If you think of the healthy epidermis as a smooth, fresh top sheet, the healthy dermis is the firm mattress that supports it. The dermis provides collagen and elastin, which give the skin suppleness, firmness, and elasticity. It also provides nutrients and moisture to the epidermis. In the normal course of aging and during periods of stress, trauma, or hormonal changes, collagen and elastin production decreases. In addition, collagen and elastin fibers become damaged. This weakens the tissue of the dermis turning it into a flat, worn-out mattress. It can no longer support the epidermis. That smooth, fresh "sheet" on top becomes wrinkled. What you see is sagging skin that has lost its "snap back" quality and has fines lines and wrinkles. Pinch the back of your hand and see how quickly the skin "snaps back." When the dermis is compromised, less blood and fewer nutrients flow to the epidermis, translating into dull, lifeless, sallow skin.

At LaMaison Derm Esthetics MED SPA we will help design you a skin care regimen that will fit your lifestyle and your pocketbook. We will work with you to streamline your skin care regimen to use the least amount of product to get you the best results.

Obagi Nu-Derm

As you age and your skin incurs the abuse of daily living (such as sun, stress, pollution), the cell turnover rate slows down. This means that the new cells take longer to form and reach the top. The old cells accumulate and stay, on the surface longer. You begin to notice those unwelcome signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and age spots, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and loss of natural skin hydration.


The Obagi Nu-Derm System, a physician-prescribed skin care system, accelerates the cellular turnover. This System penetrates deep to improve damage in layers of the skin. It boosts functions of the skin at the cellular level to improve skin's cellular function to help it look and act younger and healthier. The System triggers our Therapeutic Cascade™ of actions that:

Most benzoyl peroxides are formulated with insoluble crystals that remain largely on the surface of the skin Acne however, starts below the surface of your skin, deep within' the hair follicles, or pores.

Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.™ includes a new, liquified form ofbenzoyl peroxide that is 1/10,000 the size of any other benzoyl peroxide available.

CLENZIderm M.D.™ systems are clinically proven to penetrate more effectively than leading prescription benzoyl peroxide products.* As a result, this Rx-strength treatment instantly penetrates the pores and begins reducing acne below the skin's surface, providing a clearer complexion in as early as 2 weeks.

* Postered at the 2006 Annual American Academy of Dermatology meeting

Most benzoyl peroxides are formulated with insoluble macro-crystals that, when applied in the form of creams and lotions, remain largely on the surface of the skin. Acne, however, starts below the surface of the skin, deep within the hair follicles, or pores. But Obagi uses SoluZyl     Technology with this system and their benzyl peroxide is 10"'° m, ensuring better follicular penetration, to reduce P.acnes bacteria.
