Hormones, sun exposure, genetics and life style all play a fundamental role in how the skin ages.  Depending on the skin type and severity of the damage it all can be hard to correct.  Obagi Nu-Derm products have been a staple in our Kansas City area MedSpa for over 2 decades.  The results are consistently amazing with beautiful and long-lasting results.

What is Obagi-Nu Derm

Obagi Nu-Derm is a medical grade, corrective skin care line.  Being a prescription based line, Obagi can only be sold by medical practitioners.  This 7 step skin care line targets many skin imperfections with drastic results in just a few weeks time.  Using the perfect blend of medical grade exfoliants, hydroquinone skin lightening ingredients and tretinoin(Retin-A) ensures the best results in skin renewal.  All products are formulated to work synergistically together to push each product into the skin and restore the pH levels for proper skin health. With products designed for dry and oily skin, Obagi Nu-Derm can be used for any skin type to successfully treat melasma, sundamage, rough skin texture, fine lines, pore size, acne and acne scarring.  If you suffer from any of the above, contact our office today to learn more about how Obagi Nu-Derm products can help.

The 4 Phases of Obagi

There are several phases that your skin will go through while using Obagi. The first phase is ‘out with the old’. During this phase your skin will shed off of the surface dead skin cells.  Because of this, you will experience some dryness and flaking.  The second phase is ‘in with the new’. At this time your skin has completed the heavy shed and you will start seeing new healthier skin.  The third phase is ‘healthy glow’.  This phase is revealing the beautiful skin you’ve been so patiently working towards.   The fourth and final phase ‘new you’ is what you’ve been patiently waiting for and staying consistent with. Each phase can last about 4-6 weeks.  This time frame depends on your skin type, thickness and responsiveness to the products.  But one things for certain, when you’ve completed Obagi Nu-Derm you will have the beautiful, clear and bright skin.

If you suffer from severe hyperpigmentation such as melasma, sundamage or acne scarring combining Obagi Nu-Derm products with a professional treatment will send your skin to the next level.  Adding a Halo laser, BBL photofacial or a ViPeel chemical peel each target pigment at different levels of the skin while complimenting the Obagi product line.

Obagi Nu-Derm Maintenance

Once you’ve completed the four phases of the Obagi protocol, your esthetician will develop a maintenance specifically for your skin.  Depending on your life style, skin type and pigment level, Natalie or Heather will remove some Obagi products and also supplement some complimentary products to maintain and enhance your results.  Adding monthly facials such as the Diamond Glow will keep your cell turnover moving while infusing the appropriate serum into your skin.

Integrating antioxidant products and growth factors into your regime at this time will protect your skin from future damage, while continuing to stimulate collagen production for anti aging and continued healthy skin.
