Obagi Skincare Systems

Obagi is a highly regarded, unique, effective and powerful range of at-home skincare products. It is designed to treat mild-to-moderate acne, skin ageing and hyperpigmentation.

Long-term exposure to the sun is something that affects our skin over the years, along with a number of environmental stresses. Photodamage causes hyperpigmentation, melasma, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. These signs of ageing are often caused by the sun’s most harmful rays which can also lead to skin cancer.

The most utilised Obagi skincare products include CLENZIderm MD, Nu-Derm, Obagi-C systems as well as Tretinoin and Hydroquinone. These are clinician-dispensed anti-ageing, anti-hyperpigmentation and anti-acne therapies. They work by penetrating below the skin’s surface and transforms the skin at the cellular level. You’re supposed to not only notice an improvement in the appearance of your skin but also better ability to hold moisture and increases its tolerance to environmental damage.

Generally, skin aging is a natural process but daily sun exposure can contribute to premature aging. As such, sun-damaged skin appears dull, with older, damaged cells accumulating due to slower skin cell turnover. The Obagi Nu-Derm System is the number 1 skin transformation kit that helps correct and improve visible signs of ageing. It helps transform the skin’s appearance by reducing darks spots, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin.

Nu Derm is a skin transformation kit that contains 7 products (for best results you will also need to add Retinol or Tretinoin). It will need to be used morning and night for 18-24 weeks to transform the quality and texture of your skin. The system is available for normal/dry and normal/oily skin and transforms the appearance of ageing skin.
