How Do You Use The System?

For optimal results, you will need to use the Obagi CLENZIderm system consistently and in a way that evolves with how your skin responds. This is why we recommend only using this system with a personalised protocol. The order and frequency of the individual products will depend on your skin concern and how severe or widespread the acne is.

We also recommend using a retinoid like retinol or Tretinoin for most of our patients as it can enhance and speed up the results. Retinoids can also target any hyperpigmentation and scars in addition to treating acne. They also help to maintain and build on your results once you have completed the treatment. The protocol will also depend on other things like whether you have sensitive or dry skin. Your doctor will take all of this in to account as well as whether to integrate any existing skincare products you are using into your skincare routine.

How Long Does it Take For This to work?

The CLENZIderm system is specially formulated to target acne-causing bacteria and reduce breakouts effectively. However, individual results can vary based on skin type, the severity of acne, and other individual factors. Generally, many users start to notice a visible improvement in their acne within the first few weeks of consistent use. For some, it might take a little longer. It’s crucial to use the system as directed and maintain a consistent skincare routine. Your doctor will guide you on what to expect. They will also advise on the most effective use of the products and tailor the routine to your specific needs and how your skin responds.

Are there Any Dupes or Alternatives to Obagi CLENZIderm?

So the formulation to CLENZIderm is proprietry to Obagi which is a renowned and reputable skincare brand. Whilst by definition there can’t be any exact dupes or replicas, it is possible to get most of the benefits using products that contain the same ingredients. That and of course and lots of consistency and patience! The core components of CLENZIderm are Benzoyl peroxide cleanser and lotion as well as a salicylic acid toner. Checkout our acne prone skin routine page for examples of products that contain these. In addition, for moderate to severe acne, many people require a retinoid like Adapalene or Tretinoin alongside it.

Although we’ve had great success with CLENZIderm, we have found for most of our patients, a more personalised approach is needed for successful acne treatment. This is because acne is dependent on many factors including overall health, hormones and stress. As such everyone’s acne experience differs and best treatment varies from person to person. This is why we we developed custom made treatments that can combine both prescription and non prescriptions ingredients to tackle acne breakouts, scars and post acne marks. We are also able to adjust these according to how a patient responds throughout their treatment journey and even beyond that to maintenance and glowing skin.
