Fight Acne, Blemishes & Breakouts

If you’re exploring effective skincare solutions to tackle acne, the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System is worth considering. A part of the broader Obagi Medical suite of products, Obagi Medical CLENZIderm system is a comprehensive acne care solution designed to address the unique challenges that come with acne-prone skin. In this guide we examine the capabilities and features of the Obagi CLENZIderm MD System to gain a better understanding of its potential benefits.

What is the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System?

The Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System is a clinically proven, comprehensive skincare system designed to clear acne quickly and effectively, resulting in a clearer, healthier complexion. Unlike many other anti-acne systems, the Obagi Medical CLENZIderm MD System penetrates deep into the skin’s layers to target acne-causing bacteria at the source. The system contains three core skincare products and when used a alongisde a retinoid like Tretinoin or Adapalene it can clear acne and improve the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation as well as texture and scarring.

What Does Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System Treat?

This system is specially suited to treating mild to moderate acne. With regular use, the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System helps manage acne, reduce the occurrence of breakouts, and promote healthier, clearer skin. It not only addresses existing acne but also helps to prevent future breakouts. Moreover, it is an excellent choice for individuals with skin that has not responded well to traditional over the counter acne therapies.

How Does Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System Work?

The Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System works by using two powerful acne fighting ingredients, Salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide, in a formula that allows them to penetrate deep into the skin. This preparation ensures that the active acne-fighting ingredients reach the layers of the skin where they can be most effective.

Salicylic Acid (2%) is in the primary ingredient in both the Obagi Medical CLENZIderm Daily Care Foaming Cleanser and Pore Therapy. It works by gently exfoliating the skin and unclogs pores. This beta hydroxy acid is lipid-soluble, meaning it can penetrate the oil in the pores and help exfoliate them from within, effectively preventing breakouts, reducing inflammation and fading dark spots.

The other key component is Benzoyl Peroxide (5%). This is the main active product in the Obagi Medical CLENZIderm Therapeutic Lotion. Benzoyl Peroxide reaches deep into the skin to target the bacteria that causes acne, P.acnes, at their source. This treats breakouts and helps to prevent acne before it begins.

What Does the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System Contain?

The Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System includes three core products that work together to treat acne:

  1. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser: A light, foaming cleanser with 2% salicylic acid that gently cleans the skin, unclogs pores and removes dirt, oil, and impurities.
  2. Pore Therapy: Contains 2% salicylic acid to further unclog pores and resurface the skin.
  3. Therapeutic Lotion: This contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide, which is delivered deep into the skin to target acne at its source.

When Can You Expect to See Results?

Though individual results may vary, most users begin to notice a significant reduction in acne breakouts and oiliness within 1-2 weeks of regular use. For optimal results, we recommend you use a retinoid alongside the system and complete CLENZIderm M.D. System regularly for at least 4-6 weeks. You can then use a retinoid to maintain the effects.

How to Use the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System:

The best way to use this system will depend on how severe your acne is and your skin’s tolerance. Your doctor or skincare profesional will design and personalise a skincare routine to ensure you get the best results without irritating your skin. In general, here is a basic daily protocol for using the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System:

Morning Routine:

  • Step 1: Wash your face with the Daily Care Foaming Cleanser. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
  • Step 2: Apply Pore Therapy evenly onto your face with a swab making sure to cover all areas affected by acne. Let it dry out (do not wash off).
  • Step 3: Once the Pore Therapy has dried, apply a thin layer of Therapeutic Lotion. Wash and dry your hands as Benzoyl Peroxide can bleach towels and clothes!

Evening Routine:

  • Step 1: Wash with Daily Care Foaming Cleanser.
  • Step 2: Apply Tretinoin or your Retinoid of choice. If you aren’t using a Retinoid then apply the Pore Therapy again.

Consistency is crucial to getting the best results from the CLENZIderm M.D. System. Always remember to apply sun protection during the day, as some ingredients can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.

The Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. System is a powerful tool in the battle against acne. It offers a comprehensive approach to acne management using a simple but powerful skincare routine. The active ingredients in the CLENZIderm MD System treat acne at its source for clearer and healthy skin. The protocol does need to be adapted to your skin’s response and tolerance to ensure you get the best results.
