The skin is the largest organ of the body and for most of us, in order to keep it radiant, we need more than simple cleansing and moisturising routines.

Obagi Skincare / Environ Skincare

There are so many skincare brands on the market today, it can be difficult to decide which is best for your individual skin concerns. Very few store bought skin brands are powerful or effective enough to treat the variety of advanced skin concerns we can experience, either as part of the ageing process or genetics. At Ihya, we offer clinically-proven skincare, which we prescribe to actively target your unique skin conditions, so that you can achieve the very best skin health possible.

Obagi Skincare

Obagi is a clinical prescription only skin care line that was founded in 1988 by globally renowned dermatologist, Dr. Zein Obagi. Obagi contains powerful and highly-effective, potent ingredients which help to resurface, renew and restore the complexion.

Obagi was originally formulated for medical use only and most widely known for its skin renovating ‘Blue Peel’, this developed in to a comprehensive skincare range which treats a wide variety of skin concerns and ethnicities.

Obagi skincare can treat the following concerns:

  • The general signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Dry, dehydrated skin
  • Hyperpigmentation, sun-spots and age spots
  • Dull skin tone

The Obagi NuDerm system is an at-home use course of treatment of either 6 or 18 weeks, which include cleansing products and topical treatment applications. You will be given full instructions of how and when to use each product by your Ihya practitioner. As the weeks progress with your tailored NuDerm programme, you may experience some skin dryness, shedding and peeling. This is entirely normal and means that the system is working well for you. You will be monitored regularly throughout the duration of your Obagi NuDerm treatment programme and management of any excess or unusual skin reaction or peeling can be achieved by slightly, altering the use of some of the products. NuDerm is best suited to be used in the colder months, so that the skin is not overly exposed to UV rays.

Environ® Skincare

Environ® is a globally recognised and highly respected professional skin care brand. It is built on a strong foundation of science and the products have been formulated to combat and relieve the harmful effects of environmental factors such as pollution and the ever-increasing doses of radiation from the sun, due to the thinning of the ozone layer.

Environ® skincare focuses on the potent restorative power of Vitamin A, but also incorporates a wide range of vitamins, antioxidants, peptides and botanical extracts in order to repair the skin from environmental damage.

Environ® products are extremely powerful, so you will need to start on one of the lower dose vitamin A products and work your way through the range, so that your skin does not react aversely to begin with. This is where your Ihya practitioner can help. They will assess your skin and the amount of damage that has been caused by UV rays and other environmental factors and will prescribe the best types of Environ® products for your individual needs.

Vitamin A –

A component which is highly effective for mature skin, vitamin A helps to fight free radicals and protect against skin damage. Vitamin A helps to reduce the signs of ageing, restoring the natural radiance of the skin and promotes a healthy glow.

Vitamin C –

Products which contain vitamin C helps to boost the appearance of the skin, creating a smoother and firmer complexion with a more even skin tone. Environ® products that contain vitamin C help the skin to glow, reduce pigmentation and reduce the signs of ageing.

Antioxidants –

The skin’s surface is constantly under attack by free radicals and other environmental aggressors, such as UV rays and pollution. Antioxidants are powerhouses of protection from these factors and offer effective anti-ageing benefits. Arguably one of the most important factors in any skincare product.

Peptides –

Found to improve the texture and firmness of the skin and reduce wrinkles by stimulating collagen production, peptides are vital for skin that is maturing and needs protecting by the natural signs of ageing.

Which brand of Ihya recommended skincare is best for me?

The Visia skin assessment device which we offer here at Ihya will help to determine which skincare products will be best for you. We will also look at the type of in-clinic treatments that you are currently undergoing, so that we can make sure the skincare fits with the condition of your skin, following these treatments; taking care not to compromise it if you are experiencing any post-treatment downtime. We will also ask you about your lifestyle and whether you are happy to experience any peeling or shedding of your skin during your course of skincare, so we are able to prescribe a course of products which will fit in to your daily commitments and requirements. We will assess the improvements that your chosen skincare offers over time and recommend step-up products as and when needed.
