The Obagi Nu Derm System: Defeat your Pigmentation and Defy Time!

Obagi is the #1 physician dispensed skin care system. Formulated to transform the skin’s appearance and help correct dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and rough skin. The Obagi Nu Derm system has been around for 20 years, and it is tried and true1.

For best results, patients need to use the entire system, including the Tretinoin, as the system has been designed so that all the products work together to provide beautiful results for patients. The system comes in Normal to Dry as well as Normal to Oily, so all skin types can get the benefits of this amazing anti-aging skincare regimen.

The Nu Derm System includes: Cleanser, Toner, Clear (4% hydroquinone), Exfoderm, Blender (4% hydroquinone), Hydrate (moisturizer), SPF, and Tretinoin (Tretinoin is sold separately as it comes in different strengths cream/gel). Patients might experience some peeling and flaking when they first start the system. During this time the skin can appear pink. Depending on the condition of your skin when you begin the system it could take up to 6 weeks for your skin to acclimate. This is all normal, if you can just get through this initial adjustment period the results you’ll see are totally worth it. If a patient can’t handle the prolonged flaking, there are things that can be adjusted such as discontinuing the use of the exfoderm during the day or moving to every other night use of the tretinoin. This system will transform your skin.
