A skin rejuvenation program is often used in conjunction with chemical peels to reduce the fine wrinkles of the face, lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and produce a softer texture to the skin. The program can be accomplished separately or in conjunction with the other procedures listed here. It is to be followed at home by the patient after a consultation and a treatment plan is established for the patient’s cosmetic needs. Our skin care department is dedicated to providing you with the latest and most effective skin treatments available.
CHEMICAL PEELS are helpful for wrinkles, light acne scarring and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.
There are several types of chemical peels: Light peels remove superficial wrinkles while medium peels and deep peels are for more severe conditions.
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, a small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to an area of the face. Excess solution is removed and the procedure is repeated on other areas.
The amount of improvement varies and depends upon the initial condition of the patient’s skin. Significant improvement of damaged skin can be achieved and can produce dramatic results.

Obagi NU-DERM Skin Health Restoration System ~ Healthy Skin From Within
Below the skin’s surface are cells that give skin its smoothness, even color, and firmness. As these cells mature, new ones are made. For healthy skin, this cycle of cell replacement takes about six weeks.
But just as the health of other body parts begins to fail with age, so does the health of your skin. Add the exposure to sunlight that has built up over the years, and the skin’s ability to renew itself is damaged even more. As the cell renewal cycle becomes less efficient, skin becomes rough in texture, spotted in color, and loose in tone.
Many cosmetic products offer improved skin care, but only the Nu-Derm System offers improved skin health. That’s because it is medically prescribed. It uses prescription-strength ingredients that work at the cellular level…beyond the skin’s surface. and only a physician can provide the types of products that restore skin health at a cellular level.
Dr. Hughes and Dr. Bays are trained in skin health, offering the NU-DERM SYSTEM by Obagi. Is there anyone better to ask about improving your skin’s fitness?
