Skin and Personal Care Products
Northwestern Medicine offers a variety of skin care products to treat skin conditions, including:
Often times our eyes show the first signs of aging. Obagi® Elastiderm Eye Care focuses on the fine lines around the eye, using a bi-mineral complex to replenish elastin and build collagen. TNS® Illuminating Eye Cream contains Nouricel-MD and helps to eliminate iron and bilirubin under the eyes to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Avène® Retinal provides a rejuvenating effect for the entire face as it minimizes the appearance of skin aging without irritation. Retinal is a patented formulation of retinaldehyde, a form of vitamin A.
Preventive skin care
The skin needs antioxidant protection to prevent future damage. Replenix® CF is fortified with a green tea component, among the world’s most powerful, to help protect the skin while offering a hydrating benefit appropriate to every skin type. Glytone® Skin Care has options from cleansers to moisturizers that are infused with varying strengths of glycolic acid to keep skin functioning at its optimum level.
Obagi® Condition and Enhance is a physician-dispensed, prescription-strength skin care system that can actually transform your skin at the cellular level. By addressing the signs of photodamage and restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger and healthier looking skin. Obagi® Elastiderm Decolletage System addresses the signs of aging in this highly visible and often neglected area. This system corrects hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles on the chest and neck.
Topix® GlySal 5%/2% Pads and Topix® Gly Sal 10/2 Wash are specially formulated to accelerate the removal of dead skin cells than can interfere with proper oil drainage of the skin. Salicylic acid helps to reduce the number of acne blemishes and blackheads and allows the skin to heal.
Broad spectrum sun protection is critical in not only preventing skin cancer, but skin damage such as hyperpigmentation and loss of collagen and elastin. We offer La Roche Posay Anthelios® and Blue Lizard® sun protection products. Our latest addition is lip screen, offering powerful protection to the lips with 15% zinc oxide.
It is possible to keep a healthy glow all year long with Avène® Self Tanner, a streakless, scentless product that gives a natural color for up to seven days. The KP Kit is a two step program for keratosis pilaris that incorporates intensive glycolic acid to rid the skin of unsightly bumps and reveal smooth skin. Renew hands and protect from new damage with Retexturize Hand Lotion that is infused with glycolic acid and SPF. Razor burn and ingrown hairs can be treated and prevented with Serious Shave Cream, a glycolic based shave cream.
