Acne Therapeutic Systems

Your frustration with acne and unsuccessful treatment ends here. Obagi Clenziderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic Systems are different than other acne products. They are the only systems that use Soluzyl Technology to penetrate to the root of the follicle and clear acne where it starts. Acne starts deep below the surface of your skin. Clenziderm M.D. Systems are physician-dispensed for a reason. These three-step acne therapies can clear skin quickly when used under the supervision of a skin care professional. They’re available in two distinct systems, depending on your skin type. There’s one for normal to oily skin and one for normal to dry skin. Talk to your skincare professional about which Clenziderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic System is right for you. Most benzoyl peroxide treatments are formulated as micro- or macro-crystals, which can remain primarily on the surface of your skin. But P. acnes flourish at the root of your hair follicle which is difficult to reach. The Soluzyl Technology contained in Clenziderm M.D. is 1/100,000 the size of any other benzoyl peroxide treatment available, so it can penetrate deep into your hair follicle and kill acne at the root. Clenziderm M.D. Systems are considered prescription-strength. As a matter of fact, they are clinically proven to be as effective as a leading topical prescription benzoyl peroxide/antibiotic combination.

Radiesse, Grand Rapids, MI – Carlson Laser Aesthetics

The Aging Process Aging is a part of life, and as the years pass, the less vibrant, refreshed and youthful the skin may begin to look. In youthful skin, there is an abundance of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which give it volume, support and suppleness. As a part of the aging process, these natural support structures become less plentiful. The result is facial lines, wrinkles and skin laxity – all of which rob the skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.   RADIESSE The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. RADIESSE works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.... read more
