Obagi Nu-Derm® System - Give Your Skin the Care it Deserves
Protecting your skin against sun exposure and natural elements can ward off the effects of aging, and have an appreciable impact on your appearance. One of the simplest, most cost-effective ways of safeguarding against skin damage is the use of skin products, like moisturizers, exfoliates, cleansers, sun blocks, and toners. To meet our clients' needs, Dr. Emilio Justo offers skin care products at our Phoenix area practice locations. The Obagi Nu-Derm® System is a complete selection of products that are designed to be used in conjunction with one another, in specific dosages and frequency, for maximum benefits. Not available in retail stores or pharmacies, the Obagi Nu-Derm® System is a collection of premier skin care products. Learn more about the system below, or contact our Phoenix area locations - in Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg - today to reap its benefits.
The line of Prepare skin care products helps maintain the skin and prep it for subsequent, deeper-acting treatments such as exfoliates and sun blocks. The Obagi Nu-Derm® Prepare skin care line offered at our Phoenix area locations includes a foaming gel which removes impurities and cleanses the skin, a gel-based cleanser which can be used to remove oil and makeup, and a toner which adjusts the pH level of the skin to allow other treatments to better penetrate the epidermis.
The Obagi Nu-Derm® Improve line of skin care products actively replenishes and treats the skin. The Clear lotion is a topical prescription that contains 4 percent hydroquinone. This allows the product to correct or minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation and discoloration. Exfoderm® Forte is an alpha-hydroxy acid (made up of 6 percent glycolic and 4 percent lactic acid) that eliminates old skin cells and promotes new skin cell development. For dry skin, Exfoderm® contains 3 percent phytic acid, and promotes an improved complexion.
Designed to stimulate healthy skin development, the Stimulate line is made up of products similar to those in the Improve line. In addition to Obagi Nu-Derm® Clear, there is also Clear Fx®. This product has a non-hydroquinone skin brightener to even and enhance skin tone. Blender®, a topical prescription treatment containing 4 percent hydroquinone, is used to treat discolored areas of the skin. The Blender Fx® is a non-prescription version, containing arbutin and antioxidants, which exfoliates and brightens the skin.
Protecting the skin from damaging UV rays is perhaps the most effective way to maintain your complexion, skin tone, and color, as well as safeguard against skin cancer. The Obagi Nu-Derm® Protect line of skin care products offered at our Phoenix area locations does just that - protects the skin from sun exposure. Along with a number of sun blocks, including Healthy Skin Protection SPF35, Physical UV Block SPF32, and Sun Shield SPF50, Obagi also offers Sunfader®, a topical prescription treatment that protects against sun exposure while treating uneven skin color and brown skin spots.
If you are looking for a simple skin treatment, the Complement line of products is for you. The available treatment options include a moisturizing eye cream, Tolereen, which contains 0.5 percent hydrocortisone for temporary relief of minor burning or itching, and an all-purpose moisturizer, Action®. For individuals who suffer from acne, there is also Obagi Nu-Derm® Tretinoin, a prescription acne relief cream.
