The Obagi System recognizes that your skin is a living organ with interacting functions. Restoring the health of your skin cannot happen if you merely treat the symptoms. To achieve (and maintain) skin health, you must correct the underlying problems and stimulate the growth of new, radiant, healthy skin cells. The Obagi Nu-Derm System meets this challenge with a daily program of five easy steps. For individuals with only minor sun-damage who wish to decrease further changes we offer Obagi C-Rx. As the first and only prescription-strength Vitamin C skin care system, the Obagi-C Rx System was designed for mild to moderate sun-damaged skin. With the Obagi-C Rx System, skin is more radiant, smooth and hydrated. For our acne patients we have Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.™ System – the only prescription-strength, physician dispensed acne systems with a patent-pending 5% liquified benzoyl peroxide.
Obagi Nu-Derm™ System
The goal of the Obagi Nu-Derm system is to create soft, radiant-looking skin; to increase skin tolerance to environmental assault, and to restore normal skin functions. In the first phase of the treatment, when your skin is red and dry, you may need to add the “Control” step to minimize these temporary discomforts. All creams should be rubbed in gently until totally absorbed before proceeding.
Step 1: Prepare. In this step, you cleanse and tone to make your skin more receptive to the correction step.
Choose: Gentle Cleanser OR Foaming Gel AND Toner
Step 2: Correct. This step repairs the damage to the surface of the skin, correcting hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and smoothing skin roughness.
Choose: Exfoderm, Exfoderm Forte, Clear, Cffectives Eye Contour 5% Serum (for ‘crows feet’ area) OR Cffectives High Potency 10% Serum (for face, neck and chest)
Step 3: Protect. This step prevents further damage from harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as protect the sensitive eye area.
Choose: Physical UV Block SPF 32, Healthy Skin Protector SPF 35 OR Sunfader SPF 15
Control Step: Sometimes, especially at the beginning of the treatment, your skin may be sensitive, dry or have a reaction. As time goes by, your skin will become healthier and in less need of control agents.
Choose: Tolereen, Action OR Eye Cream
