Obagi® Skin Care Products

Store-bought skin care products are useful for cleansing the skin, and not much else. They do not promote skin renewal or help to slow or reverse the aging process. Obagi® skin care products, available at our Kansas City practice, can achieve all this, as well as firming and hydrating the skin.

Obagi® products cause a transformation in the skin. Through a combination of active prescription ingredients, Obagi® skin care products help our Kansas City patients to overcome such dermatological problems as:

  • Acne
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines or wrinkles
  • Skin Laxity

The skin care products in the Obagi® Nu-Derm system work by accelerating the rates at which new skin cells are produced and old cells are sloughed off. As this process moves forward, pigmentation in the skin caused by sun damage or aging is evened out. The result is a fresh, glowing, youthful face.

Obagi® Blue Peel

When used in conjunction with other Obagi® skin care products, the Obagi® Blue Peel can be an effective way to reduce or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots.

The Obagi® Blue Peel procedure itself requires only about an hour at the Kansas City practice of Dr. J. David Kriet and Dr. Clinton D. Humphrey. Once the Blue Peel is applied to the face and neck, patients will experience a mild burning sensation for a few minutes. Following the procedure, patients will see a blue tint to their skin, which disappears after about 24 hours.

Old skin cells will begin to peel off within two or three days; after about 10 days, the healing process will be complete and patients will be rewarded with a fresh, healthy look.

During your consultation with one of our skilled and experienced cosmetic plastic surgeons, they will determine which products from the extensive line of Obagi® skin care products are right for you. If you are planning to undergo an Obagi® Blue Peel, we recommend that you spend several weeks beforehand repairing and preparing your skin with Obagi® skin care products.
