The talented staff at The Skin Center of North Carolina specializes in a wide range of skin care and skin care products. You may have tried some over the counter products that promise you fabulous results. They can advertise in this manner because they contain a trace amount of an ingredient that has been proven to minimize wrinkles and age spots and also promote collagen reproduction. At The Skin Center of North Carolina we offer only “physician grade” topical products. These products have undergone clinical trials and contain the amount of active ingredients needed to achieve a younger, healthier skin.
One of our proven skin care lines is Obagi® medical. Developed by Dr. Zein Obagi, a world renowned Board Certified Dermatologist and leading authority in cosmetic dermatology, he has created the worlds #1 professional skin care programs for correcting complex problems such as acne, melasma(brown spots)fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
Over time, aging and skin damage from the environment causes the skin to lose its ability to “renew” itself properly. Cell turnover slows, causing the dead skin layer at the surface to be thicker and slowing the flow of moisture from within, resulting in dry uneven skin texture. Daily exposure to sunlight causes the amount of pigment in each cell to increase, producing freckles or age spots, and uneven skin tone. Elastin and collagen begin to break down causing the skin to lose its elasticity resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.
