Obagi Medical – our preferred medical skin care range

‘Transform your skin at the cellular level’

Whether your goal is to restore your skin to beautiful, healthy glowing form, reduce acne, or help to protect and preserve youthful skin, Obagi has the treatment for you and your skin type.

Why Obagi?

Beautiful, healthy skin begins at a cellular level, deep within the layers of the skin. Many commercial brands promise to deliver rejuvenating, anti-ageing skin care products, however, many of these products penetrate the superficial layer of the skin only, limiting their effectiveness.

We choose the Obagi Medical range because it penetrates deeply into the skin to support vital collagen synthesis and the maintenance of elastin.

Genuine Obagi products are only available through medical physicians. This leading-edge treatment requires an assessment by qualified, trained practitioners. Based on your assessment, we will develop a unique Obagi Medical treatment plan, specifically for your skin.

At Dr Timms’ Clinic, we offer a range of OBAGI Medical products. These include:

  • Nu-Derm® System – helps to treat moderate to severe photodamage, appearance of skin ageing (fine lines and wrinkles), hyperpigmentation, melasma and rough, uneven skin.
  • Obagi – C® Rx System – addresses early signs of skin ageing and maintains healthy skin cells. It also assists in the improvement and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. This system improves skin cell turnover via a gentle exfoliation mechanism and promotes rejuvenation of the skin with vitamin C, revealing a brighter complexion.

*These systems come individually or in value packs – please enquire at reception.

  • Obagi – 360™ System – a simple approach to preserving youthful-looking skin. This system helps improve skin tone and texture, smooths and soothes the skin by clearing congestion and blocked pores, providing a foundation for a lifetime of healthy, glowing skin. Ideal for teenage skin with non-cystic acne and can be used in combination with the CLENZIderm M.D. ™ System.
  • CLENZIderm M.D. ™ System – helps to treat acne, blemishes and clear skin by quickly penetrating deeply into the root follicle and removing acne-causing bacteria.
  • Professional – C Serums™ – these serums help to protect skin from harmful environmental stressors by the provision of anti-oxidant therapy for your skin.
  • ELASTIderm® Eye Treatment – restores elasticity to the skin around the eyes and assists in reducing fine lines and puffiness.

In Clinic Skin Treatments with Obagi:

Postoperative Care

IN HOSPITAL

You will wake after your surgery with dressings over your surgical site/s. Depending on the nature of the procedure you may also wake up with drainage tubes coming from your surgical site. These are removed with little discomfort when Dr Timms feels they are ready to be removed after your surgery. Nurses looking after you are trained to ensure that your recovery is smooth and that you are as comfortable as possible postoperatively. Our clinic nurse is always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have whether you are recovering at home or within the hospital setting.

Dr Timms undertakes regular ward rounds, so he will be monitoring you very closely postoperatively.

Your anaesthetist will have prescribed medication for you to keep you comfortable – you will have pain relief medication prescribed for you for discharge also.

POST OP APPOINTMENTS

An appointment will be made for you to be reviewed by Dr Timms nurse in the rooms 7-10 days after your surgery. This appointment is usually arranged for you at your consultation appointment with Dr Timms. Sometimes it is arranged by the nursing staff that discharge you from hospital. This depends on the nature of your procedure and the duration of your stay in hospital.

WHAT TO WEAR

A soft surgical grade compression garment is usually indicated for breast, body and some facial procedures. These garments are to be worn for 24/7 for six weeks and can be removed for showering. These are specialised garments and we will advise you where to purchase these garments, how to wear the garments and what type you require when you book your procedure with Dr Timms. Many garments are claimable via your private health insurance depending on your level of cover and whether your procedure is medical or cosmetic.

POST OPERATIVE ACTIVITY

You will need to be prepared to avoid driving for a period of anywhere between 1-3 weeks post surgery. The duration of this time depends on the nature of your surgery, medications you are taking for pain relief and your level of confidence behind the wheel post-surgery. It is advisable that you refrain from heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for 6 weeks.

Most activities can be recommenced after your 6 week review with Dr Timms.
