LATISSE is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, the inability to grow enough or adequate lashes. It should be applied nightly after removing makeup and contacts and after sterilizing the upper eyelid. Using the sterile applicator provided with LATISSE, users should apply the medication to the base of the eyelashes on the upper lid. Longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes will be fully visible after 16 weeks of treatment.
The results of LATISSE are not permanent, so treatment must continue even after 16 weeks.
Obagi Medical Products is a pharmaceutical company specializing in skin care products. Because their products are highly effective, Steele Creek Dermatology is excited to offer Obagi products to our patients.
As a person ages and increases their exposure to the sun, they often develop age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, redness, discoloration, and a loss of elasticity in their skin. The Nu-Derm System is designed to slow the aging process of skin by enabling skin cells to appear and behave healthier and younger.
There are two Nu-Derm Systems – one for normal to oily skin and one for normal to dry skin – both of which are carried by Steele Creek Dermatology. The following products may be included in your skin regimen, depending on which system is right for you:
- Cleanser – The cleanser removes makeup and daily grime to freshen and clean your complexion.
- Toner – Nu-Derm Toner changes your skin’s pH in order to maximize the effectiveness of Obagi products.
- Clear – The Clear product contains prescription-strength hydroquinone that reduces the appearance of age and sunspots. A prescription is required.
- Exfoderm – This is a lightweight lotion that removes old skin cells and encourages the growth of new skin cells by exfoliating the top layer of the skin.
- Blender – The Nu-Derm Blender gradually lightens sunspots, age spots, and other types of discoloration. A prescription is required.

Obagi Blue Peel
Chemical peels can be used to improve skin on the face, neck, or hands that has an uneven tone or that has become wrinkled, spotted, or scarred due to sun exposure, acne, or growing older. Liver spots, rough skin, and scaly patches may also be improved with chemical peels. A chemical peel involves using a chemical solution to remove damaged outer layers of skin. Obagi Blue Peels use trichloroacetic acid mixed with a unique Obagi blue base to reveal beautiful skin.
Obagi also produces Blue Peel RADIANCE, a salicylic acid-based chemical peel that exfoliates skin and provides instant, radiant results for most skin types. Though skin appearance improves after just one use, for best results Blue Peel RADIANCE should be applied four to six times.
SkinCeuticals provides advanced skincare products that are developed based on decades of skin cancer research and scientific study. Steele Creek Dermatology offers patients a number of SkinCeuticals products that help correct the signs of aging and prevent future skin damage.

Steele Creek Dermatology carries options for different skin types and lifestyles so that patients can select the product that best protects them from photo aging and skin cancer.

Antioxidants can be used to neutralize unstable molecules called free radicals that form after exposure to UV rays, pollution, and infrared radiation that cause skin to age prematurely. Additionally, antioxidants have been shown to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that maintains skin strength and elasticity. The combined effects of neutralizing free radicals and increasing collagen production are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, as well as improved skin laxity. The two antioxidant products carried by Steele Creek Dermatology are:
- Phloretin CF – treatment of aging, acne, and hyperpigmentation for normal or oily skin
- VitaminC/E/Ferulic – treatment of aging, hyperpigmentation, dehydration, over-sensitivity for normal, dry, and sensitive skin

Hydrating B5 Gel is a moisturizer that nourishes, protects, and exfoliates skin as it hydrates and restores elasticity. Hydrating B5 Gel can be used on normal, oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin types to help with aging, acne, dehydration, and sensitivity.
