As we age, our skin incurs the daily abuse of living, and cell turnover slows down. Increases in wrinkles, freckles, age spots, uneven skin tone, and loss of elasticity take place.
The Obagi Nu-Derm system is a physician-prescribed skin care system that involves a family of products designed to penetrate deep into the skin and improve damage to the layers of skin. A cascade of actions take place that pushes fresher skin cells to the surface faster, reduces mottled pigmentation, promotes more uniform cells, increases collagen and elastin, and increases nutrients to the skin. Critical ingredients within the program include hydroquinone and tretinoin.
The system does require commitment and may require routine and regular use for three to six months before improvement is appreciated. Some patients may experience mild irritation and/or flaking when beginning the program, which often improves with continued use. The goal is transformation to a more healthy and younger-looking appearance.
