As a result of ageing and the exposure of our skin to the harmful effects of sun, stress and pollutants, the ability of our skin to generate new cells is slowly reduced. Due to reduced skin cell turnover, old cells are left on the surface for longer, leading to a loss of the skin’s natural hydration and elasticity. Skin starts to show unwelcome signs of ageing, becoming rough, uneven and lacking in tone. You may notice an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, freckles and age spots.
How it works:
What does Obagi Exfoderm do? It is part of the Nu-derm skin restoration system which helps to return skin to a healthy state, free of the disease and deterioration that is accelerated by the skin’s exposure to harmful UV rays and pollutants. Skin health restoration is achieved through the topical application of the Nu-derm system of products, which work together to help regulate skin cell functions and improve circulation. The products work at a cellular level, deep within the skin, to achieve real long-lasting results. Skin is restored, looks radiant and younger as fresh new cells are able to reach the surface.
The system improves the functioning of 3 skin cells: Melanocytes, Keratinocytes and Fibroblasts, as well as stimulating new vessel growth to improve circulation to the skin. These actions are achieved by means of the Therapeutic Cascade.
Reduces overactive melanocyte production – Corrects hyper-pigmentation which leads to freckles and age spots, and distributes melanin evenly.
Repairs (intracellular transcription) of keratinocytes – Cells produced by the deep basal layer of skin are more uniform, resulting in improved skin structure and tone.
Stimulates fribroblasts – Increases fibroblast production of elastin and collagen, proteins which improve the strength and resilience of skin.
Angiogenesis stimulated in the dermis – Improves the skins supply of vital nutrients.
