Obagi Vitamin C Serum- Skin Age Defense

obagiAs I mentioned in the past week, Maine Laser Skin Care is now carrying Obagi skin care products, which are a world-renowned and award-winning line.  Today I am highlighting one of these products, Professional-C Serum.

I should also note, as I did previously, that Professional-C Serum and other Obagi products are not available to purchase online, or at least not at Maine Laser Skin Care’s online store.  It and other Obagi-brand items are, however, on sale in our Augusta office.

Obagi’s Professional-C Serum is an unique mix of various ingredients that are designed to minimize the effects of skin aging.  Vitamin C is the serum’s primary component at a 20% concentration, which is best suited for normal to oily skin.  This level of vitamin C is able to penetrate the skin quickly and then remain within the skin at a depth, which will result in maximum effectiveness.

As an anti-oxidant, vitamin C, when embedded within the skin layers, neutralizes inflammatory factors that cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  The calming effects of vitamin C complement the process of collagen production, resulting in brighter skin tone and maintenance of skin texture.

Best-Vitamin-C-SerumRegular use of vitamin C has also been shown to improve skin hydration and stabilize other positive aspects of skin repair.  Studies have also demonstrated that adequate vitamin C levels in the skin enhance the effectiveness of sunscreens when in use.

The Obagi Vitamin C serum does represent a step-up in intensity of C concentration, and should not be used if someone has irritated or sensitive skin.  But for the appropriate person, the improved penetration and absorption as a result of higher concentration will pay significant benefits.

If you want to improve your defenses against the signs of skin aging with cutting edge protection, I would recommend adding this product to your regimen.  Also if you currently use Obagi products and want to obtain them locally, give us a call at (207) 873-2158.  If you have specific questions concerning the new Obagi line or any of other products, Denise and Becky will be available.
