We all inevitably age; however, the signs of aging can be sped up by environmental damage to our skin through sun exposure, smoking, stress, and even pollution. While we can’t prevent aging all together, the regular use of high quality skin care products can go a long way in minimizing the symptoms of aging as well as protecting against the formation of new skin conditions like sun spots, wrinkles, and uneven surface texture.

Pittman Plastic Surgery offers patients several skin care product lines based on their individual skin needs. For those patients specifically interested in reversing the signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation (melasma), Obagi® Nu-Derm may be especially effective. Obagi® Nu-Derm utilizes a custom combination of glycolic and lactic-acid containing cleansers, corrective serums, and protective products to address these skin conditions at the core of the problem: cell production.

Most patients are able to notice dramatic improvement in the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne, and other surface imperfections within six weeks of use (one full skin cell cycle). Pittman Plastic Surgery’s providers meet with patients during a consultation to suggest which of the following products will be most effective in producing the desired cosmetic results.

  • Gentle Cleanser
