Days of longer and more intense sun are just ahead of us. Protecting your skin from harmful sun rays everyday (rain or shine) pays off in the future. Here’s why:

  • Our skin can (and will) prematurely age based on environmental factors such as exposure to UV radiation.
  • UVA and UVB radiation actually changes the way our skin cells make chemicals and affects the protective functions of our skin.
  • The damage to our skin from the sun, known as “photoaging”, accumulates over time and lessens your skin’s ability to repair itself.
  • Every time we are exposed to the sun without proper protection changes in the skin occur and these changes will alter how our skin looks and feels.

The best way to prevent premature aging, wrinkles, leathery skin, “liver” spots, freckles, skin growths, thinning and/or loose skin, and discoloration is to protect your skin from the harmful UVA / UVB rays year round. A great misconception is that a person only needs to wear sun protection during long exposures to the sun but studies show that brief exposures (to and from the car, in the office near a window) do add up.

We carry many highly effective sun protection products at our San Jose MedSpa. Ask one of our staff members for recommendations, we’d be happy to help you!

The Obagi Nu-Derm system is one of our favorite kits to transform the skin. It helps to correct hyperpigmentation and improve the signs of visible aging. It’s easy to follow and the results are noticeable.

The picture above includes:

  • Gentle Cleanser – a cleanser that removes make-up and impurities.
  • Toner – helps adjust the pH of your skin. It is alcohol-free and non-drying.
  • Clear – a 4% hydroquinone formula that helps correct hyperpigmentation (including dark spots, age spots, sun spots, melasma, and other types of discoloration).
  • Exfoderm – a lightweight lotion that helps exfoliate the top layer of the skin, removing dull, old skin cells.
  • Blender – Obagi’s unique formula that contains 4% hydroquinone for the gradual lightening of hyperpigmentation.
