Specialty / Obagi

Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. Cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, and damage caused by free radicals all contribute to the premature aging of our skin so we offer skin care products that are clinically-proven with prescription-strength formulations available only through medical offices.

Treatment series vary depending on the condition and the skin type, including:

  • Aging skin
  • Sensitive skin
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Oily/acne prone skin

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels eliminate the damaged outer layer of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes resulting in healthy, glowing skin.

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is a salicylic acid peel that effectively exfoliates the uppermost layers of damaged skin, leaving it refreshed and radiant. It is a gentle peel that has noticeable results after 1 treatment.

Topical Products

In addition to chemical peels, topical products used as a system result in substantial improvement to many of these skin related conditions by restoring skin elasticity and collagen production, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and Décolletage.  Dr. Kathleen Leone, MD, FACS and designated Wilmington Eye staff have been Obagi certified since June 2011.

Obagi FAQs

What is Photoaging?

Prolonged exposure to the sun, pollution, and a lifestyle that is not always healthy, aggravate the natural, gradual physiological ageing process, leading to deterioration of the skin structure. This phenomenon is most evident at the level of the epidermis and upper papillary dermis. Clinical aspects include skin thinning, transparency, laxity, wrinkles, uneven colouring, pigmentary marks, vascular marks, and irregular texture.
