The Obagi Nu-Derm System, the “crown jewel” in our armamentarium, incorporates tretinoin therapy with luxurious, easy-to-use cleansers, toners and creams to be applied daily. Used faithfully and correctly, the Obagi System will help to restore health to sun and smoke damaged skin, reduce age spots and other hyperpigmentation, and increase the skin's own ability to hold moisture. The Obagi Nu-Derm system corrects surface discoloration and blemishes. It also penetrates into the skin to stimulate skin cell renewal, improve circulation and help rebuild collagen. The normal barrier function of the skin is restored, making the skin less sensitive and better able to hydrate properly. Physically, skin is left with increased smoothness, reduced pore size and improved elasticity.
Obagi can improve sun damaged skin showing early wrinkling, areas of uneven pigmentation, and areas of keratoses (precursors of skin cancer). Brown spots from hormonal changes caused by aging, contraceptives, and pregnancy can also be corrected by using the Obagi Nu-Derm system.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System is 6-step program using products with active ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids, hydroquinones and tretinoin. The System is easy to use because the products are numbered 1-6 and a "Personal Guide to Skin Health" gives you step-by-step instruction on how to administer the program properly.
