ELASTIderm Eye Treatment
Elastiderm Eye Treatment is all about the eyes. Skin around eyes is very thin, fragile and shows age sooner than the rest of the face. It can be very challenging to find an effective product to treat eye wrinkles. Elastiderm Eye Treatment contains bi-mineral complex called Copper Zinc Malonate which helps to restore elasticity around the eyes and reduce appearance of wrinkles.
Another Obagi product in the Elastiderm line address signs of aging in Decolletage. The skin of your neck and chest is another very vulnerable to aging area. It is thin, doesn’t have fat cushion and is often overlooked in skin care routine and sun protection. As a result hyperpigmentation (discoloration), age spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles can set in early on.

You are lucky if acne was a problem for you only in your teen years. For many people this problem persists into their 20s and 30s. Obagi products offer a solution with their CLENZIderm MD Systems which contains a patented solubilized form of 5% benzoyl peroxide. The treatment works by penetrating deep into the follicle and kill acne at its root. It’s available for various types of skin.
Obagi developed Rosaclear System to treat rosacea, one of the hardest skin conditions to cure. This skin care system features Obagi products which address such symptoms of redness, flushing, papules and pustules.
