Used as a Pre & Post Procedure product!
The Obagi™ system combines specially developed products with medical supervision to treat your skin from the inside out. The Obagi™ Nu-Derm system works on the surface of the skin to smooth roughness and correct damage – such as uneven skin tones, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scarred, and naturally aging skin. It penetrates below the surface to stimulate proper cell renewal, improving circulation and helping restore your skin’s natural moisture.*
The Obagi™ Nu-Derm system uses medically prescribed products in conjunction with tretinoin therapy to restore the natural glow and elasticity of healthy skin. The goal of the Obagi™ Nu-Derm system is to create soft, radiant-looking skin, increase skin tolerance to environmental assault and restore normal skin functions.*
The Obagi™ system corrects surface discoloration and blemishes. It repairs skin damage, correcting lines and wrinkles, creating a lovely, even skin tone. Most importantly, it stimulates at the cellular level to increase collagen and elastin, and to renew the flow of natural moisture to the surface. It even slows the aging process in the years to come. The normal barrier function of the skin is restored, making the skin less sensitive and better to hydrate properly. After six weeks (one skin cycle), new skin cells emerge to the surface.*

The Three Phases of Restoration: An easy step-by-step system.
Your doctor will prescribe the Obagi products designed for your skin type and color, and will determine the proper course of action for you.
The Obagi Nu-Derm products are a unique line of cleansers, toners and creams designed to complement the benefits of tretinoin therapy. They combine exfoliating acids,skin bleaching agents and an exclusive ingredient, Complex 272 (Saponins), which enhances the performance of the active ingredients. The Obagi Nu-Derm products are clinically tested and therapeutically proven by physicians throughout the world.
During the treatment, you will experience three distinctive phases in the restoration of your skin health.*
Restoring your Skin Health
Our program is a flexible program. The Restoration process is the one your skin will undergo on its path to health. Your skin will become smooth, firm with an even, healthy tone. It will function properly and build its tolerance to environmental aggression.*
The Restoration process — the process your skin undergoes as it returns to health — consists of three phases of change: Out with the Old, In with the New and Healthy Glow. The length of time your skin is in each phase depends upon the Nu-Derm protocol your physician has recommended and on the condition of your skin.
You Should Expect
1. Reaction Phase:
Initial correction and stimulation phase.
During this initial correction and stimulation period, your damaged top layer is replaced by a new layer of healthier cells. It takes about six weeks for a “newborn” cell to reach the top layer and exfoliate.*
You will experience one or more of these symptoms:
It is very important to stay with the program. These reactions are a sign that skin restoration is in process. The Nu-Derm system is accelerating the cell turnover to actually alter the thickness of the rough top layer of the skin. The phase is especially important for sensitive skin, because it will make it less sensitive and more tolerant to environmental aggression.
By the end of this phase, your efforts will pay off with your skin starting to look more translucent and smooth.*
2. Tolerance Phase:
Correction and stimulation continues.
As the correction and stimulation continues, you will notice significant improvements in your skin almost
By now, your skin has built tolerance to the treatment. As new skin cells reach the surface, skin improvement becomes visible and tangible. Even more important, the system is helping the skin increase the production of collagen and elastin to diminish wrinkles and reduce pore size. Skin color becomes even and clear, skin texture is supple and naturally hydrated.*
You should expect: Reaction to subside, and Good Skin.*
3. Corrected Phase: Healthy
Correction and stimulation have peaked.
Finally, your skin enters the last stage. Your skin tolerance is now complete. Now the surface problems have been corrected. Your skin is healthy and restored to a much more youthful appearance. Maintenance of skin health is easy with the “Activation/Maintenance” program.*
Depending on the protocol chosen, your skin will have achieved various degrees of stimulation.*
You should expect: Reactions to almost disappear, and your best skin.*
At the end of the Restoration process, you will have achieved your goal of healthy, younger looking skin. You can retain these improvements by simply following the Activation/ Maintenance program recommended by your physician.*
Maintaining your new healthy, younger-looking skin for a lifetime is easy. Your skin health routine will be second nature to you.*
It will be simple to develop a maintenance regimen that fits your skin type and the nature of your skin problems.*

Obagi™ Nu-Derm Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How often should I contact my physician?
A: It is important to call your Skin Health Counselor at least once a week for the first three weeks, or as needed to have your progress checked. When you make this call, be prepared to tell your Skin Health Counselor how much tretinoin, Clear and Blender have been used.
If the prescribed protocol has created severe reactions or if it is too slow for you, your Skin Health Counselor can- with the doctor’s approval- change or modify the protocol.
You will be instructed to check back with your doctor in about four to six weeks. As you enter the second phase of the Restoration process, follow-up appointments can be made for six to twelve week intervals depending on the protocol.
Q: What if I’m in the “Out with the Old” stage and don’t want to be red and flaky at a social event?
A: Your skin responds quickly. So stop the Exfoderm, Clear, and Blender and tretinoin treatment three to four days prior to the event. Continue to use the Cleanser, Toner and Sunfader. Apply Action and Tolereen in the morning and evening. Most reactions will subside in the two to three days. Go back to the protocol as soon as your social event is over to restart the Restoration process.*
Q: What if my skin is itchy?
A: Discontinue Exfoderm, Blender and tretinoin for one to two days. Use Tolereen mixed with Action in the morning and evening until comfortable. Continue with the protocol as soon as possible to restart the Restoration process.*
Q: How exact are the duration of the phases of Restoration?
A: Some individuals may have more reactions than others, some less. In some cases, three or more skin cycles may be needed to see improvements.*
Q: How much time is needed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
A: You should continue two to three more skin cycles after the Corrected Phase on a Moderately Aggressive protocol to achieve anti-aging improvements.*
Q: What happens if I’m in the sun or in hot conditions?
A: During the first phase of treatment, your skin is very sensitive to the sun and heat, so use Sunfader or Sunblock several times a day when exposed to the sun. Avoid hot baths, showers, and saunas. If you cannot follow these precautions, then discontinue the Blender and tretinoin therapy a week prior. Continue to use the balance to the protocol and return to the total protocol as soon as possible.*
Q: What if my skin is really sensitive at the beginning?
A: You can choose a Gradual or Flexible protocol. Keep in mind that reactions around the mouth and eyes may be stronger than on the rest of the face. In these areas, you can double the amount of Blender versus the amount of tretinoin. Cut the strength of Exfoderm by mixing it with Action to a level you are comfortable with and cut the frequency of application to two to three times per week. Then gradually increase the frequency and decrease the ratio. Continue with the prescribed protocol on the cheeks and forehead. Remember, the program is flexible and you can tailor it to fit your lifestyle. But don’t forget that your doctor’s program should be followed to achieve the best results.*
Q: Is the Obagi Nu-Derm system exclusively for facial skin?
A: No, treating and restoring healthy skin is not just for the face. You can use the same treatment on other parts of the body, such as the neck and chest, arms, hands, thighs, and legs. However, always consult your physician to achieve the best results.
