Obagi® Nu-Derm Details

As skin ages, many issues begin to become evident: first the fine lines, then the deeper wrinkles. Uneven skin tone, freckles and age spots begin to pop up, and loss of hydration and elasticity leave skin looking dull and tired.

How does Obagi® Nu-Derm work?

The Obagi® Nu-Derm system can help reverse the signs of aging skin by promoting skin cell turnover.

  • The system uses a five-step process called a therapeutic cascade that begins by pushing new cells to the surface of the skin faster, thus reducing wrinkles.

  • Secondly, the system helps to reduce excess pigmentation such as freckles and age spots.

  • Next, the products promote the development of more consistent cells, which evens out skin tone.

  • Then, collagen and elastin production is increased for more resilient skin.

  • Finally, nutrients in the skin are increased due to a natural hydration and circulation process promoting healthier skin.

What to expect while using Obagi® Nu-Derm

While using the Nu-Derm system, there are typically four phases to expect; the length of each phase will vary from patient to patient.

  • During the first phase, age spots, freckles, and discolorations begin to fade. There will be some exfoliation, flaking, redness and dryness; wrinkles and acne may look worse initially. These reactions are only temporary and indicate that the medications are working.

  • Once past the initial phase, wrinkles begin to reduce, pores begin to tighten, redness is reduced, and discolorations are lightened even more.

  • The third phase begins to reveal firmer skin, more even skin tone, and more lustrous skin. The fourth and final phase is simply maintenance. Healthier, firmer, and younger looking skin continue to emerge with continued use.

There are several products in the Obagi® Nu-Derm system. The system works by selecting a cleanser and toner to prepare the skin, a serum, lotion, and/or exfoliation product to improve the skin, a cream to stimulate the skin, a SPF cream to protect the skin, and a moisturizing cream to control the skin. All products are available by prescription only and work together as part of a custom designed regimen recommended by the Knight Dermatology Institute.

There are also Obagi® Nu-Derm starter kits for Normal to Dry as well as Normal to Oily skin, which contains a sample size of each product and an informational brochure that further explains the benefit of each product. Travel kits for Normal to Dry and Normal to Oily skin are also available for on-the-go patients.
