The Obagi® Nu-Derm® System consists of topical products, which when used as part of a system, result in substantial improvement to many age-related skin conditions. These products are specially formulated to prevent and reverse many of the signs of aging at the cellular level to reveal flawless, healthy skin. The company continues to maintain its position as a leader in medical skin care by having launched several successful new systems of products. These include:
- Condition & Enhance™ System, developed to enhance the results of physician-delivered surgical and non-surgical procedures
- ELASTIderm® family of products, a one-of-a-kind treatment developed to restore skin elasticity, promote collagen production, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and/or Décolletage (upper chest area)
- CLENZIderm M.D.™ Acne Therapeutic Systems, which treat and prevent acne at the root cause
- Rosaclear™ System, developed specifically for the treatment and prevention of the signs and symptoms of Rosacea
Because the Obagi® systems and products contain prescription-strength formulations, such as Retin-A and Hydroquinone, these systems are only available by prescription and should be used under the direction of a physician.
Retin-A (aka Tretinoin) anti-aging benefits:
- Speeds up the cell cycle to turn over the outer layer of skin cells faster
- Helps to “prime” the skin for cosmetic procedures
- Improves skin texture
- Improves skin tone
- Decreases pore size
- Decreases oil production and the formation of acne
- Helps to build collagen
NOTE: Retin-A usage sensitizes the skin and makes you more susceptible to sunburns.
You MUST use sunblock when usingRetin-A!!
