obagi before and after pics

Recommended Posts

Hey Girls,

 

I just started obagi w/ IPL and microderms and it has been really great and has helped me get rid of alot of skin discoloration i had...i am trying to reverse all the bad sun damage i had befre my wedding...

 

here are some before/afters i pulled from this skinare forum...it is another alternative to lasers and photrejuvination and is just using topical lotions sometimes in conjuction with microderms. it is kinda rough the first 2 weeks but gets alot easier...they say most treatments take 6-8weeks or longer...i am on week 3.

Hi Kashmira,

 

i went through this really rough, hormonal period where i broke out like a 13 year old teen...horrible, gigantic zits...some were the size of golfballs...i even had to have this giant cyst surgically removed. i looked like such a freak (i also, had braces)...i was a monster...

 

there was nothing i could do because it was hormonal...it was so hard because i always had perfect skin...once my skin stopped breaking out, it left horrible acne scars...i couldn't even cover them with makeup. when i got engaged i knew i did not want these ugly wedding pics so i started working on my skin...

 

obagi was a lifesaver.

microderms are ok...honestly they do not do much for your skin...i am a skin fanatic...i did a combo of laser, obagi, and microderms but honestly the biggest improvement was from retin-s and obagi together.

I'm so excited to see your Obagi results. I had always had moderately bad skin that I treated for a while, then frankly got lazy and just lived with the fact that I'm gonna have one or two zits all the time. I have an appt with the derm doc next week and we talked about doing Obagi/Laser or some sort of combo to get rid of my scarring. I'm so excited! I guess I used to feel kbad about spending that kind of $$ on myself, but now that the wedding is coming I have an excuse!

sarah, i am an obagi/laser expert...so if you have any questions, ask me...i did soooo much research before i did it and felt bad about the money but once i started planning the wedding realized i did not want pics where my skin looked bad...

 

i am so happy with the results...

 

i did:

 

6 sessions IPL

6 session of microderms

obagi/retin a during the whole process above BUT would stop using for a couple days before and after each procedure.

 

also, i used anthelios extreme fluid sunscreen (usually only sold in europe, do NOT buy the canadian stuff because it does not have mexoryl in it so not as goo, but i have a good course if you want) with skinceutical c & e feurilic so i did not get more sun damage while my skin was hyper-sensitive to sun.

Thanks Tammy

Hopefully after my appointment I'll have a better idea of what I'm getting into and I'm sure I'll have questions. I'm just worried about looking so horrible while I'm going through the treatments. I have a week off of work every three weeks, so I'm hoping to try to time it so I'm off during the worst. Do you think that's possible?

the first 2 weeks were REALLY rough...i looked like a monster...no exageration...i was so sensitive about it but steve was always super positive and told me i looked fine even though i knew i didn't.

 

on those days, i stayed home...the first week you will be really red, then week 2-3 you will be peely so pick which would be worse for you.

 

by 2nd week i didnt even care i looked funny. i told people from the get go: excuse my appearance, i am doing an intense skin care regiment...this satisfied alot of people so they didnt ask ?? or look at me weird...they all understood.

Hmmm, maybe I'll take a couple of extra days off! I work at the hospital, so I have to be out in public and see lots of people. I guess I just need to get over it, get it done with and then I'll look so much better in the end. I just have to decide: peely or red- which is worse! mad2.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
