Obagi Vitamin C Serum- Skin Age Defense
As 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.
Regular 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.
