Obagi Nu-Derm​

One of the best ways to avoid Hyperpigmentation is to firstly limit exposure to the sun and protect your skin from the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays by wearing the appropriate level of sunscreen. Avoiding excessive trauma to the skin, e.g. by using less harsh chemicals in cleaning products can also help limit and manage Melasma.

However, when hyperpigmentation requires treatment, hydroquinone is recommended for treating age spots, dark spots and melasma, and is a key ingredient in Obagi’s Nu-Derm System.

This treatment includes an award-winning medical skincare range that is prescribed to the individual based on their concerns. The regime has to be used for 12-24 weeks and regular check ups with the skin scanmer are included every 6 weeks. The Nu-Derm System uses prescription-strength products to penetrate below the surface of your skin in order to transform skin cell functions at cellular level and correct damage. This gives fantastic results on reducing pigmentation, exfoliating old skin and leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.*

Hydroquinone is a naturally occurring substance found in many fruits and grains. It acts upon the melanocytes, suppressing them in the affected area. It can take several weeks to see results from using treatments with hydroquinone, and it is strongly recommended that patients who have seen improvements in their pigmentation as a result of using Obagi Nu-Derm or the Obagi-C Systems use the appropriate sunscreen, such as Obagi’s Sun Shield Matte or Sun Shield Tint SPF50 as well as Obagi Physical UV Block to prevent hyperpigmentation returning. Exposure to the sun’s radiation can naturally cause significant changes to the skin’s pigmentation, so treatment is only part of the solution. 

It is important to use only Obagi Nu-Derm products prescribed by your skincare specialist and to use only the specific dose and frequency recommended for your skin type and treatment concern.
