Obagi Nu-Derm Skin Care Treatment
Obagi Nu-Derm is an at-home treatment that transforms damaged, dry, or wrinkled areas into smooth, soft, well-moisturized skin in just six weeks. Nu-Derm also strengthens skin against everyday damage, reduces the appearance of blemishes and other discoloration, improves circulation, and rebuilds collagen for a full, youthful look.
Nu-Derm treatment may be right for you if you want to soften the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Age spots
- Rough skin texture
- Skin looseness
- Skin redness
- Discolored skin
Because the Obagi Nu-Derm system contains prescription-strength ingredients, it is exclusively available through licensed dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons and other physicians. At our practice, we can help you decide if this treatment is the best way to get the facial result you want.
How is Obagi Nu-Derm different from Over-the-Counter Products?
The Obagi Nu-Derm system is a comprehensive, clinically proven, prescription-strength program. Its ingredients operate at the cellular level to improve your skin cell function. Over-the-counter products sometimes do not penetrate these deep layers and do not contain the same kinds of ingredients. Nu-Derm is more a medication than a skin cream.
Your skin needs 2-4 weeks to adjust to the ingredients in the Obagi Nu-Derm system. During that period, you may experience some mild peeling and skin irritation.
Prolonged sun exposure damages the skin, so we recommend that you avoid long periods of sun exposure. You may participate in normal outdoor activities while using the Nu-Derm system, but your skin may be very sensitive to sun and heat. That is why we recommend that you always wear a sunscreen when you plan to be outside.
