Skin changes are among the most visible signs of ageing, but with the right skin care routine, it is possible to minimise the visible appearance of ageing.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System is a scientifically formulated system that comes in a kit for home use. It is an anti-ageing wonder-product that penetrates the skin deeply, rejuvenating it at a molecular level to correct damage within.
It completely transforms human skin in as little as 12-16 weeks, correcting the following:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles,
- Loss of Skin Elasticity,
- Rough Skin Texture & Acne Scarring,
- Sallow or Yellow Complexion,
- Sun Damage & Age Spots,
- Hormonal Hyperpigmentation, like Melasma,
- Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation from Acne.
Patients must stay compliant for 12 – 16 weeks (depending on skin condition at the start) to see optimal results and the skin can go through some unpleasant transitions in the process.
The routine is correcting YEARS of damage on the skin, and that doesn’t happen overnight. The Nu-Derm system is not like other skincare systems; it is indeed a medical treatment that contains best products.
There may be weeks when you are on the Obagi Nu-Derm system when your skin looks worse before it seems better. At this time, dramatic internal restructuring and external resurfacing are occurring, and you may experience redness, irritation, sensitivity, intense dryness and flaking.
Stick with the system for the full 12-16 weeks, and you will literally have new skin.
