OBAGI: The Three Phases of Restoration

The Three Phases
of Obagi Restoration

Obagi Home >>> Obagi Skin Care Guide

The Obagi Restoration Process - the process our skin undergoes as it returns to health - consists of three phases of change: Out with the Old, In with the New and Healthy Glow. The length of time your skin is in each phase depends upon the Nu-Derm protocol your physician has recommended and on the condition of your skin.

Phases of Restoration What You Should Expect
1. Reaction Phase:
Out with the Old
Initial correction and stimulation phase

This is the time in which the damaged top layer of skin is replaced by a new layer of healthier cells. It takes about six weeks for a "newborn" cell to reach the top layer and exfoliate.

You will experience one or more of the symptoms:

Dryness, Itching, Exfoliation, Burning, Redness,
Wrinkles may look worse, Sensitive skin, Acne may look worse

It is very important to stay with the program. These reactions are a sign that skin restoration is in process. The Obagi Nu-Derm system is accelerating the cell turnover to actually alter the thickness of the rough top layer of the skin. This phase is especially important for sensitive skin because, ultimately, it will make it less sensitive and more tolerant to environmental aggression.

By the end of this phase, your efforts will pay off with your skin starting to look more translucent and smooth.

2. Tolerance Phase:
In with the New
Correction and stimulation continues

By now, your skin has built tolerance to the Obagi treatment. As new skin cells reach the surface, skin improvement becomes visible and tangible. Even more important, the Obagi system is helping the skin increase the production of collagen and elastin to diminish wrinkles and reduce pore size. Skin color becomes even and clear, skin texture is supple and naturally hydrated.

You should expect:

1) Reactions to subside, 2) Good skin

3. Corrected Phase:
Healthy Glow
Correction and stimulation have peaked

Finally, your skin enters the last stage. Your skin tolerance is now complete. Your skin is healthy, with surface problems corrected. Maintenance of skin health is easy with the "Activation/Maintenance" program.

Depending on the protocol chosen, your skin will have achieved various degrees of stimulation.

You should expect:

 1) Reactions to almost disappear, 2) Best skin
