Acne can be both painful and embarrassing. Adult and teenage sufferers spend millions of dollars a year on acne treatments that dont deliver. Weve spent this week discussing the causes of acne and the efficacy of chemical peels for combatting the condition, but what about a regular skin care regimen? NOVA Plastic Surgery offers a state-of-the-art skin care treatment regimen for combatting acne: Obagi CLENZiderm M.D. Systems. The goal of using this system is to clear your skin, and then keep it clear so you never have to worry about acne again. Obagis CLENZiderm M.D. Systems consist of prescription-strength acne skin care products that contain a specially-formulated mix of 5 percent benzoyl peroxide. While the benzoyl peroxide in most topical treatments ends up sitting on top of the skin, Obagis formula penetrates deep into the skin for maximum efficacy. The CLENZiderms benzoyl peroxide formulation is solubilized, and is 1/10,000 the size of benzoyl peroxide molecules in other products on the market. That means it can soak into the skin at a much better rate than any other product, combatting acne at the deepest levels of the skin. The solubilized benzoyl peroxide enters deep into the pores, eliminating acne-causing bacteria. The Obagi CLENZiderm systems come with a number of products, including a Daily Care Foaming Cleanser, Therapeutic Lotion, Therapeutic Moisturizer, and Pore Therapy. The NOVA Plastic Surgery team will help you decide which system is right for your skin type.
