Maintaining the skin's vitality becomes much more of a challenge as we grow older and healthy, toned skin, free from lines and imperfections is hard to achieve. But we can take steps to make it easier, so our looks reflect the age we feel rather than the age we are.

What’s different about Obagi?
30 years ago Dr. Zein Obagi redefined skincare…. creating skin-care systems designed to create and maintain healthy skin. Until this point dermatology has largely focused on managing skin skin disease.
His philosophy has led to the development of some of the most widely recognized skincare products and solutions to be prescribed by doctors.
In contrast to many traditional skin-care regimes, Obagi use retinols & products to encourage exfoliation - leaving you with healthy new-skin glow.
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.
How Nuderm Works: The science
The Obagi Nu-Derm System uses a unique combination of active and prescription ingredients - including Tretinoin and Hydroquinone 4% - to maximize penetration to all skin layers.
The System triggers a Therapeutic Cascade that:
- Increases cellular turnover of abundant, healthy keratinocytes, pushing fresh cells to the surface more quickly and promoting old cells to exfoliate faster
- Suppresses melanocyte production reversing and preventing hyperpigmentation
- Promotes the even distribution of melanin, eliminating unwanted dark patches and age spots
- Repairs intracellular transcription of keratinocytes, producing healthy, uniform cells for better skin structure
- Stimulates fibroblasts to increase collagen and elastin formation, resulting in stronger, more resilient skin
- Increases GAG synthesis, providing natural hydration and necessary nutrients to the epidermis Increases angiogenesis, improving blood flow)

With Obagi-C Rx, you're on your way to healthier, refreshed, revitalized skin from cell to surface.

It's not an eye cream. It's not a moisturizer. It's ELASTIdermTM ... and it works like no other topical eye treatment can.
Elastiderm increases skin elasticity reducing fine lines immediately beneath the eyes and on the upper lids. This is a fantastic adjunct to Botox, which cannot be used in these areas.
Clinical Studies show a 46% increase in elasticity, as well as a 16% reduction in the number of visible wrinkles after just 9 weeks, with results in just 2 weeks. When patients evaluated the product for themselves: 97% reported that the rough, crêpey skin around their eyes was mild, barely or not noticeable, 88% reported firmer skin and 80% of subjects were satisfied with the improvement in visible fine lines and wrinkles.
