Since its founding in 1988 with the creation of the Obagi Nu-Derm® System by leading skin care experts, Obagi has continued to grow, and in 1997 the company officially began operations as Obagi Medical Products.
Over the years, Obagi Medical Products, Inc., has developed clinically proven skin health products and systems primarily for the dermatology, plastic surgery, and related aesthetic markets. Using its Penetrating Therapeutics™ technology, Obagi products are designed to improve penetration of prescription and cosmetic agents across the skin barrier to minimize premature aging, skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, sun damage, and the signs and symptoms of rosacea.
As a leader in skin health, Obagi Medical Products, Inc., has launched several successful systems of products in addition to the Nu-Derm System, including the Obagi-C® Rx System, the Condition & Enhance® System, the ELASTIderm® family of products, the CLENZIderm M.D.™ Systems, Blue Peel®, Blue Peel RADIANCE®, and the Rosaclear® System.
Because Obagi systems and products contain prescription-strength formulations, the systems are available only through physicians, primarily dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas, and other skin care and medical professionals.
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 you may already see or you will eventually see on your face.
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 ARE THE EFFECTS OF PHOTODAMAGE ON YOUR SKIN?
As your skin ages and is exposed to UVA and UVB rays, the turnover of skin cells slows significantly, throwing off the balance between the growth of healthy new cells and the sloughing of old, damaged cells. Additionally, collagen and elastin begin to break down, causing the skin to lose resilience resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Daily exposure to UV light then accelerates this aging process and may cause uneven coloring.
SIGNS OF PHOTODAMAGE AND AGEING
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Rough skin
- Skin laxity
- Erythema (Redness)
- Sallowness (Complexion)
- Hyperpigmentation (Discoloration)
HOW DOES THE NU-DERM SYSTEM TRANSFORM YOUR SKIN?
The Nu-Derm System penetrates below the surface of your skin to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level and correct the damage within.
Using a specific dose and frequency that's recommended specifically for your skin condition, the prescription-strength system exfoliates old skin leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.
