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
You Should Expect
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:
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.
with the New
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.

degrees of stimulation.
