Unlike the unsubstantiated claims made by over-the-counter skin care products, Obagi Medical Systems claims are backed by real research. The Obagi Nu-Derm System is clinically proven to visibly lighten age spots, fine lines and wrinkles and increased pigmentation. The texture and appearance of your skin is improved on a daily basis. Two prescription-only products are used in the Obagi Nu-Derm system: tretinoin cream and 4% hydroquinone cream. With continued use, the Obagi Nu-Derm system will also help to prevent future skin damage.
To achieve the full benefit from using Obagi Nu-Derm, it is important that you use prescription-strength Obagi Tretinoin Cream which is sold separately below. Tretinoin cream is a necessary part of their system to achieve the best results. It is mixed in the palm of your hand each evening with Obagi Blender (part of the Nu Derm kit) and is then applied to your face.
Obagi Nu-Derm will complement and enhance the results achieved from other cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® and facial fillers such as Radiesse®, Sculptra®, Juvederm® and Restylane® to make your overall results even better.
Of all topical therapies available to date, tretinoin cream has clearly been shown to be the most effective topical treatment to reverse the signs of aging and photodamage. No other group of topical agents has been as extensively tested in patients with photoaged skin. Tretinoin cream promotes new collagen production and increases the numbers of newer, healthier cells in the skin. The evidence for significant and lasting clinical benefit is overwhelmingly in favor of tretinoin cream when compared with alpha hydroxy acids and other cosmeceutical products.
Obagi ELASTIderm is a very effective eyelid treatment from Obagi Medical Products. Obagi ELASTIderm uses a revolutionary bi-mineral complex, Copper Zinc Malonate, and Blueberry Extract which restore the elasticity and build collagen around your eyes while decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Blueberry Extract has antioxidants that help to eliminate free radicals which can deprive your skin of its youthful glow.
Obagi-C Rx Systems contain prescription-strength 4% hydroquinone to reduce hyperpigmentation and age spots in the skin. Hydroquinone is combined with Vitamin C (10% L-ascorbic acid) which is a powerful antioxidant which stimulates collagen synthesis while it protects your skin by minimizing future skin cell damage from free radicals caused by photodamage from the sun. If you find that tretinoin cream, as used in the Obagi Nu-Derm System, is too irritating to your skin then the Obagi-C Rx System may be right for you.
Obagi-C Rx Systems are ideal if you wish to treat:
Obagi-C Rx Systems can be used by anyone regardless of skin type - normal, dry or oily.
Obagi Professional-C Serums contain profession strength Vitamin C with greater penetration than other Vitamin C products. Vitamin C helps to neutralize free radicals, preventing environmental damage to your skin. Since free radicals dramatically increase in the skin with exposure to sun, you get added protection from the daily exposure to the sun’s damaging rays helping to prevent premature aging.
Obagi Professional-C Serum will give your skin the superior protection it needs to:
The Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System is a prescription-strength acne treatment that contains a patented, solubilized form of 5% benzoyl peroxide.
