These world class products combined with our expert care and advice will ensure that you are on your way to having the complexion and skin that you have always dreamed of.

Anti-aging Transformation

Skin aging is a natural process, but daily sun exposure can contribute to premature aging, slowing down the turnover of skin cells between healthy new cells and old damaged cells.
Signs of aging and photo damage are:

  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rough skin
  • Skin laxity (loss of elasticity)
  • Erythema (redness)
  • Sallowness (complexion)
  • Hyperpigmentation (discoloration)

Correct the signs of aging skin with the Obagi Skin Care System. The prescription-strength products focus on repairing the skin at the cellular level, which speeds up its renewal process and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation and acne


Obagi Medical products are a pharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures, markets and sells proprietary prescription skin care systems. The Obagi Nu-Derm System products were created in 1988 by Dr. Zein E. Obagi and other leading experts


Obagi has created three skin care systems to repair and protect the skin. Each system of products is specifically designed to work together, effectively balancing the pH level and penetrating ingredients to the layers of the skin, revealing superior results


Obagi provides three skin care systems: Obagi Nu-Derm System (accelerates skin cell turnover so it looks and acts younger), Obagi-C Rx System (helps the skin to look more radiant and even toned by correcting mild to moderate sun damage) and Obagi Professional-C Serums (potent Vitamin C serums for maximum daily antioxidant protection). Obagi also offers specialized acne and eye treatments.

The Nu-Derm System is the physician-dispensed, prescription-strength skin care system that can actually transform your skin at the cellular level. By addressing the signs of photodamage and restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger and healthier-looking skin.

What can I expect when I use the Obagi Nu-Derm System?

It is important to understand that you will experience some reactions such as redness, peeling and itching as part of your skin’s transformation process. These changes mean that the treatment is working. Don’t be discouraged. Instead, renew your commitment to transform your skin. In a few weeks, you will begin to notice improvement. The length of time for each phase depends on your daily commitment to use the system and the condition of your skin.

    1. Out with the old:

The Obagi Nu-Derm System penetrates to the deepest layers of the skin to correct signs of aging. Old, dead skin cells are sloughed off and replaced with fresh cells. Itching, dryness and redness indicate that your treatment is working.
This phase lasts approximately 6-8 weeks and you can expect more even-toned skin as pigment cells begin to become balanced

    1. In with the new:

Your skin begins producing normal, healthy cells. Healthy new cells are pushed to the surface faster. Pigment cells are distributing melanin more evenly. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated. Your skin begins to tolerate the treatment and reactions subside. This phase lasts approximately 6-8 weeks and you can expect smoother, softer skin as its natural rhythm of renewal is regained

    1. Healthy glow:

Skin cells are in the process of transformation. Layers of the skin receive an increased supply of nutrients and blood flow. Healthy, strong collagen and elastin production continues. Skin is smooth, naturally hydrated, evenly coloured and more resilient. This phase lasts approximately 6-8 weeks and you can expect to see the skin becoming firmer and tighter with improved clarity and a healthy glow

    1. The New You:

The Obagi Nu-Derm System has transformed your skin! Now, your goal is to make it a permanent part of your daily health care routine. Check in routinely with your skin care specialist to maintain your results long term with the Obagi Nu-Derm System maintenance programmes. This phase will last indefinitely, with maintenance. Your skin now looks and acts younger and healthier.

How quickly will I see results when using the Nu-Derm System?

Your individual prescribed protocol and frequency of use should be determined by our Obagi professional doctor, but you can typically expect visible improvements in four to six weeks

Why is the Nu-Derm System sold exclusively by physicians?

The Nu-Derm System contains prescription-strength formulations that can only be sold through a licensed physician, such as a dermatologist, plastic surgeon or cosmetic doctor who has had professional Obagi training

Why should I get the Nu-Derm System from an Obagi professional and not from Internet?

The first reason is you may not get the genuine product from the Internet. Secondly, you might not be able to get ” Obagi Tretinoin ” which is a core prescription only product needed to achieve the result that you want. Finally and most importantly, you may not use the system correctly and experience side effects from doing so. Our Obagi professional doctor will prescribe you a specific protocol for you personally after examining your skin condition in order to achieve the maximum results

Can the Nu-Derm System be used if I will be in the sun (i.e. at sporting events or at the beach)?

Keeping in mind that extended sun exposure damages the skin, it is suggested that you avoid prolonged sun exposure without protection. While on the system, you can participate in normal outdoor activity, however, your skin may be sensitive to the sun and heat. It is very important to always wear a sunscreen, like the Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35 and/or the Physical UV Block SPF 32 in the Nu-Derm System, and reapply sun protection every few hours while exposed to the sun

Why should I use all the products in the Nu-Derm System?

Each product in the Nu-Derm System is specifically designed to work together to provide you with the best results. When used as a system, the prescription-strength ingredients work to effectively balance the pH level of your skin and penetrate into the layers of your skin for superior results. Your skin care professional will guide you in using the system based on their assessment of your needs.

“I really didn’t like the texture of my skin, my pore size and I had a lot of hyperpigmentation. I was a little intimidated to have to use so many products and have to buy into some sort of system. I was skeptical. But all I can say is WOW! What a transformation. Thank you so much Dr. Johnson for introducing me to Obagi” Ravinda*, Bath

“I have heard a lot about the famous Obagi Nuderm System but never imagined how wonderful the result would be.
