Next in the series of blog posts introducing our new line of Obagi products is the ELASTIderm® Decolletage System. I have discussed many times about the phenomenon I have seen in many women whereby they spent a great deal of time and attention to protection and enhancement of their face, only to neglect the neck and upper chest area.
Following years of sun exposure from lack of sun protection and the V neck or scoop neck design of clothing, the neck and chest frequently will show signs of photoaging out of proportion to the face. These signs include sun or age spots, patches of dark pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, redness from broken blood vessels as well as a rough appearance and texture to the skin.
The ELASTIderm Decolletage System is essentially a unique and proprietary combination formulated to reverse the effects of sun exposure and aging. The system includes two lotions (as seen above) which are used in sequence each day morning and evening.
First is the Skin Lightening Complex that uses 4% hydroquinone to reduce darkened areas including freckles and sun spots which results in a revitalized appearance of the skin. Second is the Wrinkle Reducing Lotion which uses a complex of minerals to improve the skin’s elasticity and flexibility thereby improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When used, a pea-sized amount of Skin Lightening Complex is applied gently to the chest and neck twice daily. This product should be allowed to absorb completely, and is then followed by a pea-sized amount of Wrinkle Reducing Lotion also applied gently and evenly. Most patients who use this system see visible changes that complement the face by reducing the appearance of age spots, lines, and texture.
Don’t let your neck or upper chest reveal your age! If you have any questions about this product, feel free to call Becky or Denise at 207-873-2158 to discuss this or other of our skin care products.
