Obagi Nu-Derm® System

Clinically proven to help correct and improve signs of skin aging, our #1 physician-dispensed skin care system is specially formulated to transform your complexion for beautiful, healthy-looking skin.

 

Steps to Beautiful, Healthy-Looking Skin

The Nu-Derm System offers a complete, convenient protocol for treatment at home. Your skin care physician will design a specific protocol that incorporates dosing, frequency, and treatment objectives for your skin.

Morning Routine

Step 1: Gentle Cleanser or Foaming Gel—Massage a small amount of cleanser and water onto the skin. Rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry.

Step 2: Toner—Apply in the morning and evening after cleansing. Saturate a cotton pad and gently wipe over face and neck. Do not rinse off.

Step 3: Clear—Squeeze a small amount (approximately 1 to 2 pea-size drops) onto your hands. Apply evenly to the entire face, extending to the hairline, over the ears, and ending with a feathering motion, or as directed by your skin care physician.

Step 4: Exfoderm® or Exfoderm Forte—Massage a small amount (approximately 1 to 2 pea-size drops) onto the face until completely absorbed, avoiding the eye area.

Step 5: Hydrate™—Apply a small amount evenly to the entire face.

Step 6: Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50—Apply liberally and evenly to the entire face 15 minutes before sun exposure, and reapply at least every 2 hours. (See product packaging for additional usage instructions and warnings.)

Your physician may prescribe tretinoin or Renova® (tretinoin cream) 0.02% for use in conjunction with the Nu-Derm System. Tretinoin cream is indicated for topical application in the treatment of acne vulgaris. Renova® (tretinoin cream) 0.02% is indicated as an adjunctive agent for use in the mitigation (palliation) of fine facial wrinkles in patients who use comprehensive skin care and sunlight avoidance programs. RENOVA DOES NOT ELIMINATE WRINKLES, REPAIR SUN-DAMAGED SKIN, REVERSE PHOTOAGING, or RESTORE MORE YOUTHFUL or YOUNGER SKIN.

Important Safety Information for Clear, Blender, and Sunfader

CONTRAINDICATIONS:
People with prior history of sensitivity or allergic reaction to this product or any of its ingredients should not use it. The safety of topical hydroquinone use during pregnancy or in children (12 years and under) has not been established.

WARNINGS:
Avoid contact with eyes, nose, mouth, or lips. In case of accidental contact, patient should rinse eyes, nose, mouth, or lips with water and contact physician.

Sunscreen use is an essential aspect of hydroquinone therapy because even minimal sunlight exposure sustains melanocytic activity.

Contains sodium metabisulfite, a sulfite that may cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people. The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown and probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in nonasthmatic people.

PRECAUTIONS (ALSO SEE WARNINGS):
Treatment should be limited to relatively small areas of the body at one time since some patients experience a transient skin reddening and a mild burning sensation, which does not preclude treatment.

Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with topical hydroquinone. It is also not known whether hydroquinone can cause fetal harm when used topically on a pregnant woman or affect reproductive capacity. It is not known to what degree, if any, topical hydroquinone is absorbed systemically. Topical hydroquinone should be used on pregnant women only when clearly indicated.

Nursing Mothers: It is not known whether topical hydroquinone is absorbed or excreted in human milk. Caution is advised when topical hydroquinone is used by a nursing mother.

Pediatric Usage: Safety and effectiveness in children below the age of 12 years have not been established.

Use of the product should be discontinued if hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients is noted.
