When I was first introduced to Obagi, I immediately thought of my Mom. Mom has been battling the pigmentation on her face ever since it first appeared in her mid-late 30’s.
That’s a lot of years now. She has tried creams, facials, and various products that were introduced to her at different points but none have shown significant results.
When I was with Obagi product manager, Jeffrey and Dr Wong from David Loh Surgery, they were confident that Obagi Toning is going to be THE solution for my mom’s pigmentation.
It’s great that Mom is on Obagi Toning treatment with me. We can counter check with each other on side effects and the different stages our skin goes through.
Mom’s been on the treatment for 3 weeks + now and this is her before & after photo.
I am showing you the left side of her face where the pigmentation has significantly lightened. When I saw her when she was back from Kuala Lumpur after 3 weeks, I was so happy for her! No more excessive concealers!!! And this was achieved with the use of ONLY the Obagi Skincare system.
The right side of her face has more stubborn, deeper and darker pigmentation as seen above. The spot that causes her the most problems. See the improvements of her skin over 3 weeks below! Amazing right?
Overall, she is much fairer with a more even skin tone and her skin surface is also a lot smoother.
This is the result after 3 weeks of only using Obagi Skincare system.
In the 3 weeks, she has been using the same products as I did only hers is skewed for dry skin. While mine is for combination-oily skin. She was also given a stronger Retin-A cream than mine since her pigmentation was more severe.
She has experienced a lot of peeling and still is. This is good for her as her skin needs to shed the outer layer of old skin and push the pigmentation upwards. She just had her 1st Laser Genesis with Dr Wong and we are expecting to see more improvements.
Stayed tuned here as I check in with her and her results over the next couple of weeks. :)
As for me, I have done 6 weeks of Obagi Toning and I am LOVING the results. My skin has become fairer, pores are significantly smaller, and best of all, my skin surface has become a lot smoother. Read about my experience here.
A lot of the time, you get so used to seeing your own complexion everyday that you can’t tell the subtle differences. But photos don’t lie, at least mine doesn’t because I didn’t do any editing other than slight colour corrections where needed. I see the significant improvements week on week. :)
