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.

    Tammy, your slkin looks so beautiful! It's hard for me to imagine you having skin damage. Sounds like a good product though!

    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.

      Wow! That's amazing, me and my FI are going to start getting microderms at least 6 months before the wedding. He is super anal about his face, I think he has better skin than me.

      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!
