Obagi Nuderm

Over the years, your skin has been exposed to a number of environmental stressors, which cause damage that can reach the deepest layers of your skin. Photodamage, caused by the sun’s harmful rays, is the main cause of the fine lines, wrinkles and age spots that your may already see or will eventually see on your face.

Obagi Nu-Derm is the #1 prescription-strength, physician-dispensed skin care system that provides our patients with benefits they can see and feel.

If you are looking to:

  • Improves cellular skin function
  • Minimize the signs of premature aging
  • Reduces future photodamage
  • Helps skin look and act younger and healthier
  • Reduces acne flares

During treatment, you can expect to experience four phases as your skin undergoes transformation to a more healthy and younger-looking appearance. The length of time between the phases will vary based upon multiple factors including patient age, skin type, amount of damage and daily compliance.

The four phases of transformation.


In this initial phase, the damaged top layer of skin is replaced by a new layer of fresh, healthy skin cells. This process takes approximately 6 weeks.

During this phase, you can expect to experience one or more of these symptoms:

  • Freckles, age spots and dark patches begin fading
  • Exfoliation and flaking
  • Redness and dryness
  • Wrinkles and acne may look worse temporarily

These reactions are indications that the treatment is working.


As stimulation continues, you may begin to notice significant improvements in your skin. New skin cells continue reaching the surface and the production of collagen and elastin increases.

Expect to notice:

  • Wrinkles begin to reduce
  • Tightening of pores
  • Further lightening of freckles, age spots and dark patches
  • Subsiding redness and flaking


In this phase, you will begin to notice your skin has been transformed to function properly, making skin look and act healthier.

Your skin is:

  • Firmer and more resilient
  • More even color tone
  • Smooth and naturally hydrated


In order to keep your skin looking and acting younger and healthier, you will want to continue to use the Obagi Nu-Derm System to maintain the improved results that you have achieved.
