Obagi Skin Care Health

Home >>> Obagi Skin Care Guide

The Obagi Nu-Derm System is a treatment with four easy steps. In the first phase of treatment, when your skin is red and dry, you may need to add the "Control" step to minimize these temporary discomforts. All creams hosed be rubbed in gently until totally absorbed before proceeding.

Steps Products Application
1. Prepare. In this step, you cleanse and tone to make your skin more receptive to the correction step. Gentle Cleanser or
Foaming Gel
Wash your face with the recommended cleanser, rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Avoid rubbing the skin with a towel
Toner Put the Obagi Toner on a cotton ball or pad and apply to your entire face. Do not rinse.
Topical antibiotic, if prescribed (not included in the Obagi product line).   If prescribed, put the antibiotic agent on a cotton ball and apply. Some antibacterial agents may come in presoaked pads.
2. Correct. This step repairs the damage to the surface of the skin, correcting hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and smoothing skin roughness. Clear Rx

Apply Obagi Clear evenly on the entire face extending to the hairline, over the ears and ending with a feathering motion. Wait 2 minutes and apply a second coat over dark spots.
Note: Patients with dark skin should use Obagi Clear on the entire face once a day, preferably in the morning, and apply at night only on the darkest areas. Once a desirable color tone is achieved, use Obagi Clear only as needed.

Exfoderm /
Exfoderm Forte
Apply Evenly over entire face, avoiding the eyelid area. Wait until the cream is absorbed.
3. Stimulate. This step repairs damage to the deeper layers of the skin. It restores skin elasticity by enhancing the production of collagen and elastin. Blender Rx
Apply 1/2 gram of Blender followed by the prescribed amount of tretinoin. Apply evenly on the entire face, extending to the hairline, over the ears and ending with a feathering motion.
4. Protect. This step prevents further damage from harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as protect the sensitive eye area. Sunfader Rx
Sunblock Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35
Apply in the morning under your makeup. Reapply often while in the sun.
Note: Prolonged sun exposure should be avoided for the first month.
Eye Cream Recommended for daily use to take care of the thin skin of the eyelids.
Control. Sometimes, especially at the beginning of the treatment, your skin may be sensitive, dry or have a reaction. As times goes by, your skin will become healthier and in less need of control agents. Action Use sparingly only when your skin is uncomfortably dry. Can be used to cut strength of Obagi Exfoderm.
Tolereen Apply this hydrocortisone lotion whenever needed in the areas where you experience itching, burning or redness.
Note: Control agents should only be used temporarily, as they slow down the skin restoration process.
