OBAGI Nu-Derm System

obagi-nuOver the years, your skin has been exposed to a number of environmental stressors, which cause damage that can reach the deepest layers of your skin. Photodamage, 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 Nu-Derm System is the physician-dispensed, prescription-strength skincare system that can actually transform your skin at the cellular level. By addressing the signs of photodamage and restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger- and healthier-looking skin.


How it Works

The Results of Aging and Environmental Stressors

Skin cell turnover significantly slows

  • Cell generation and cell loss are unbalanced, old cells remain on the surface longer
  • Skin looks dull and tired due to dehydrated stratum corneum

Cellular mitosis creates abnormal keratinocytes

  • Epidermal structure is disorganized
  • Skin looks and feels rough, bumpy and tone is uneven

Melanocytes over-produce melanosomes

  • Excess melanin cannot be evenly distributed
  • Skin shows mottled hyperpigmentation and dark spots

Damaged collagen and elastin weakens dermal connective tissue

  • The epidermis is no longer supported
  • Skin is wrinkled, saggy, fragile and lacks glycosaminoglycans

Nu-Derm Transforms the Cellular Function of the Skin

Increases cellular turnover rate

  • Increases cellular turnover rate
  • Result: Continually pushes fresh cells to the surface more quickly

Repairs intracellular transcription of keratinocytes

  • Causes basal layer of skin to produce cells that are more uniform
  • Results: Better skin structure

Reduces overactive melanocyte production

  • Pigmented skin cells begin to become regulated – creating a more even toned appearance
  • Results: Reduced hyperpigmentation

Stimulates fibroblasts

  • Increases collagen formation
  • Results: Stronger, more resilient skin with fewer lines and wrinkles
