Would you like to markedly improve the health of your skin to uncover your natural beauty? Unlike traditional skin care products that only treat problems on the surface of your skin, the Obagi Skin Health Restoration System® works at the cellular level to develop and maintain the glow and softness of healthy, younger skin. You can use the Obagi Nu-Derm skin treatment program alone or as a preparation to reduce the problems of other procedures such as peels and laser resurfacing. Designed for easy use at home, in as little as six weeks (the time it takes for the outer layer of your skin to be replaced with the fresh one beneath) the Nu-Derm System® transforms damaged, dry or wrinkled areas into smooth, evenly colored, soft and well-moisturized skin.
While the Nu-Derm System is designed as a system to restore sun and age damaged skin, Obagi® also makes a number of products for basic skin care, such as Vitamin-C and one of the best sunblocks on the market, where restoration is not needed and for people with acne.
The Obagi Nu-Derm® System:
It’s not about skin care; it’s about skin health. Skin Health Restoration, instead of just dealing with the superficial signs of aging skin and hiding them, actually reaches deep below the surface, to stimulate and actually promote your skin’s restoration and ultimate health. This is the system that other systems are measured against. It is one of only a few skin care regimens with real clinical studies with published peer reviewed data showing its effectiveness and has more studies than all the others combined. These studies show a significant improvement over the separate products alone and combined as well as other products on the market, both prescriptive and non-prescriptive. We have personally seen this as our results from using the same ingredients as in the Obagi® system, though good, improved markedly (2-3 times) when we switched to the Obagi® Nu-Derm System.
Their sunblock, an excellent UVA and UVB block that is water resistant and needs reapplication only if washed or rubbed off and a normal part of the Nu-Derm system, is one of the best available.
We also recommend, in addition to the Nu-Derm system, Vitamin-C Serum and ELASTIderm®. The Vitamin-C helps restore the skin’s pH and normal protective barrier, acts as an antioxidant, reduces some spots and stabilizes the cell membrane. The ELASTIderm® converts some of the collagen created by the Retin-A as part of the Nu-Derm system into elastic tissue to help reduce wrinkles. One of the ELASTIderm® formulations even can hide under eye wrinkles temporarily.
If you need just basic skin care and not rejuvenation, Obagi®’s alpha hydroxyl cleanser to reduce the dead cell build up, their Vitamin-C Serum to restore the skin’s normal protective barrier and pH and their sunblock are all you need.
For those with acne, Obagi® makes the CLENZIderm M.D. ™ system. This system contains all you normally need to treat acne, a cleanser with salicylic acid to remove the dead cells obstructing the pores and micronized Benzoyl Peroxide to kill the bacteria causing the breakouts. For some patients with severe acne we occasionally add Retin-A.
