Your skin combats the effects of sun exposure, hormonal changes, and stress every day. All these factors can influence how skin looks and feels, and how it shows signs of aging. Over the years, your skin has been exposed to a number of environmental stressors. This causes damage that can reach the deepest layers of your skin. Photo-damage, 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 Obagi Nu-Derm System is a nurse prescribed, prescription-strength skin care system. It can actually transform your skin at the cellular level. By addressing the signs of photo-damage and restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger- and healthier-looking skin.
Signs of photo-damage and aging
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Rough skin
- Skin laxity
- Erythema (Redness)
- Sallowness (Complexion)
- Hyperpigmentation (Discoloration)
What are the effects of photo-damage 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 colouring.
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 by your skin care professional for your skin condition, the prescription-strength system exfoliates old skin leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.
What do people have to say it?
In a study of the Nu-Derm System with tretinoin, at week 24:
- 96% of patients showed an improvement in dark spots and discoloration
- 100% of patients reported it was more effective or much more effective than other medications they have tried
- 96% of patients were no longer very embarrassed or very self-conscious about their skin
Real Patients… real satisfaction
“the Obagi Nu-Derm System has not only changed my skin, but it also changed my life, by bringing back my confidence!”
“I began to use less makeup, because there was nothing to hide under it”
Who should use the Nu-Derm System?
If you’ve experienced occasional sunburns, daily sun exposure, hormonal changes, stress and environmental pollution, then your skin will likely show signs of premature aging or occasional acne flares. Your genetic history may also make you more prone to the effects of aging skin. Talk with your skin care professional about how the Nu-Derm System can be tailored to your skin care goals and your skin type.
Here are a couple of before and after pictures taken from the Obagi literature.
