Nu-Derm

Over the years patients  tried other products or mixed and matched! After a short time they return to Obagi Nu-Derm system. . The return of natural skin translucency is the hallmark of a patient who maintain skin health with the NU-Derm transformation course! Obagi Nu-Derm is a 3 to 4 month home treatment course of powerful skin lighteners, exfoliators enhanced by Obagi Patented Therepeutics™  penetration technology!.  Because the products work sequentially, it is recommended for best result, patients stop using any other skin care products and use only the complete Nu Derm system suitable for their skin The exfoliators and penetrators allow the skin enhancers  & lighteners to reach down deep into the skin to treat the really stubborn pigment. In my practice,  patients use Obagi for a total of 3 or 4 months . After the initial course I recommended a maintenance program specific to their skin.

Additionally 2-3 times per year I recommended a 3-4 week shock stimulation program to ensure optimum skin health is maintained and reducing the requirement for deeper peels & or lasers .

As you begin using the Nu-Derm, your skin will undergo 4 phases of transformation.

Phase 1: Out With the Old (Weeks 1-6)Promotes cellular turnover and maximizes the results of your procedure by penetrating the layers of your skin. • Old, dead skin cells are pushed to the surface and replaced with fresh cells • Itching, dryness, and redness are normal reactions as your skin adapts to the active ingredients in the system* • Pigmented skin cells begin to become regulated, creating a more even-toned appearancePhase 2: In With the New (Weeks 7-12)Smoother, softer, clearer skin is created. • Your skin begins producing normal, healthy cells • Pigment cells are distributing melanin more evenly • Collagen production is stimulated • Your skin begins to acclimate to the active ingredients of the systemPhase 3: Healthy Glow (Weeks 13-18)Your skin cells are in the process of transformation. • Collagen production continues • Your skin is smooth, naturally hydrated, evenly colored, and more resilient • Your skin is becoming clearer, firmer, and tighter with improved clarity and a healthy glowPhase 4: The New You (typically lasts indefinitely, with maintenance)You can enjoy a complexion that’s smoother, clearer, and firmer, but rememb

How is the Obagi-C Rx System different from other Vitamin C products?

Many companies offer cosmeceuticals that contains Vitamin C, but it’s important for you to know that not all Vitamin C products are created equal. Clinical data show the patented Obagi-C Rx formulation delivers more L-ascorbic acid into the skin and remains in the skin longer than other leading Vitamin C skin care product.1

Obagi Professional-C Serums offer maximum daily antioxidant protection and greater penetration than other Vitamin C products. The greater the penetration, the greater the antioxidant benefit to your skin. Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals to prevent skin cell damage. Professional strength Vitamin C can give your skin the superior protection it needs to:

  •     Prevent premature signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles
  •     Protect against future damage
  •     Stimulate collagen production for firmer, more resilient skin

Which Obagi-C Rx System is right for me?

There are 2 comprehensive Obagi-C Rx Systems designed to treat all skin types. One system is for normal to dry skin and the other is for normal to oily skin.

CLENZIderm system (Acne)

When you’ve got acne, all you want to do is clear it fast!

Safe, effective treatments are out available , but  knowing why? Is the first step in managing the problem!

Firstly you are not alone! 85% of adolescents and 1/3 adult females are estimated to suffer acne!

Acne is generally associated with oily skin, for many, their skin may actually be dry or sensitive. Common Acne (acne vulgaris) is essentially a disorder of the sebaceous glands of the skin. These glands are influenced by hormones which increase the secretion of oils.

Small sebaceous glands lie just under your skin surface and make an oil (sebum) that keeps your skin supple and smooth. Tiny pores on your skin allow the sebum to come on to the surface of your skin. In acne, some of these pores become blocked, causing small pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads.

  • Too much oil clogs the pores and increases the chance of breakouts.
  • These glands are influenced by hormones which increase the secretion of oils.

Additionally abnormal collections of dead skin cells block the gland and  Bacteria (P.) acnes* multiply in the obstructed follicles. Inflammation and immune responses in the skin result in the development of inflammatory acne lesions. These inflammatory lesion s form the basis of acne scarring!

Research suggests that Stress and diet contribute to acne breakouts.

The severity of acne may vary from mild to severe,but  even mild breakouts can have significant affects on self esteem and early intervention with effective treatments is recommended. Particularly in the case where scarring occurs!

Mild to moderate acne may be controlled by simple conservative steps.

ELASTIderm® Décolletage

These days your skin is aging a lot more quickly. The sun and environmental elements can take their toll, leaving behind hyperpigmentation (discoloration), age spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles. And although you may have diligently maintained the skin on your face for years, you may not have paid as much attention to the skin on your chest and neck, also known as your décolletage. The skin on your décolletage is particularly vulnerable to these visible signs of aging, since it tends to be thinner, less moisturized, and often overlooked in the sun protection regimen. The result can be a harsh contrast between the youthful, protected skin on your face and the discolored, damaged skin on your chest. So, take steps today to revitalize your décolletage skin with a regimen specially formulated to reveal a more radiant all-over glow in this highly visible area.
