The Obagi Nu-Derm® System: The Transformation
What are the effects of aging and photodamage on your skin?
As your skin ages, the turnover of skin cells slows significantly, throwing off the balance between the growth of healthy new skin cells and the sloughing off of old damaged skin cells. Collagen and elastic begin to slowly break down, causing the skin to lose its resilience, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.
How quickly will I see results when using the Nu-Derm System?
Your individual prescribed protocol and frequency of use should be determined by your skincare professional, but you can typically expect visible improvements in four to six weeks.
Why is the Nu-Derm System sold exclusively by physicians?
The Nu-Derm System contains prescription-strength formulations that can only be sold through a licensed physician, such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Can the Nu-Derm System be used if I will be in the sun (i.e. at sporting events or at the beach)?
Keeping in mind that extended sun exposure damages the skin, it is suggested that you avoid prolonged sun exposure without protection. While on the system, you can participate in normal outdoor activity, however, your skin may be sensitive to the sun and heat. It is very important to always wear a sunscreen, like the Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35 and/or the Physical UV Block SPF 32 in the Nu-Derm System, and reapply sun protection every few hours while exposed to the sun.
