What do you want to correct about your skin?
Are you concerned with uneven skin tone, dark spots, fine lines or redness?
The good news is that the most effective anti-aging ingredients (prescription retinoids and retinols—both vitamin A derivatives) target skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and lines and wrinkles for younger and healthier looking skin.
Retinoids and sunscreen offer a one-two punch in fighting signs of aging. But sometimes this duo is not sufficient to diminish discoloration or hyperpigmentation that has resulted from sun exposure.
Used for the past 50 years to treat pigment concerns, hydroquinone remains the gold standard for reversing dark spots, melasma, and uneven complexions.
ZO Medical Melamix™ contains 4% hydroquinone and is available by prescription only through SkinRenew.
ZO Medical Melamin™ also contains 4% hydroquinone, but with the addition of vitamin E to fight free radicals and repair damaged cells.
Dr. Obagi recommends that you only use hydroquinone under medical supervision because of potential side effects, such as irritation.
Many alternative skin lightening products have been developed. For example, ZO Medical Brightenex™ uses a blend of retinol, melanin inhibitors including soy, and antioxidants to brighten skin. Dr. Obagi often recommends using Brightenex™ after Melamin™ for optimum results.
Chemical peels also work to brighten complexions and diminish the appearance of dark spots. The Apeele chemical peel www.apeele.com is an in office procedure that causes some redness, peeling and flaking—enough to let you know it is working—resulting in a clearer complexion.
If you can spare the downtime—up to one week of extreme redness and extreme peeling—an Apeele chemical peel will reveal a new layer of undamaged skin with smoother texture, less lines and wrinkles, and more even skin tone.
No matter what condition you seek to correct, SkinRenew has the right solution for your skin.
