The Obagi Nu-Derm System
Published on: April 12, 2017
If you have uneven skin tone,dark pigmentation the beginnings of fine lines, open pores or dull, lifeless skin, the best course of action can be to undertake deep exfoliation in the form of a skin peel. One of the skin peel treatments that we offer at the London Cosmetic Clinic is the Obagi Nu-Derm system, a range of prescription strength products that help repair the skin at a cellular level, erase signs of premature aging and speed up the skin’s renewal process.
The Obagi Nu-Derm system was developed by renowned dermatologist Dr Zein E.Obagi in 1988 and, due to its strength and the importance of correct application, it can only be administered by clinics with a special license. The products are carefully administered to ensure that the right pH level is achieved and that the best possible results are obtained. As with all of our treatments, you will have a free consultation first so we can assess the condition of your skin and discuss your desired results.
The first phase of the treatment involves using the products to remove the top few layers of skin. It penetrates the skin and encourages it to shed its top layers, taking along impurities and signs of damage with it. You may notice that your skin feels tighter and slightly itchy during this phase. This first stage lasts approximately 6 to 8 weeks but you may start to notice a difference within 4 to 6 weeks. As the skin produces new skin cells, it also produces more collagen and elastin and is more evenly pigmented, so your skin is smoother, bouncier and flawless looking.
During treatment, we recommend that you use an SPF of at least 30 and avoid excess UV exposure as this can damage the skin further. We also prescribe an aftercare routine so you get the best possible results and your skin continues to look younger and more even.
