What is the difference between the Nu-Derm System and products purchased from department stores, drug stores, infomercials, etc?
The products in the Nu-Derm System contain clinically proven, prescription-strength ingredients that work at the cellular level to improve your skin cell function. Products purchased from a retail store are cosmetic-based products that do not contain prescription-strength ingredients.
Can the Nu-Derm System be used if I will be in the sun (ie, at sporting events or at the beach)?
Keeping in mind that extended sun exposure damages the skin, it is suggested that you avoid prolonged sun exposure. While on the system, you can participate in normal outdoor activity. However, your skin may be sensitive to the sun and heat. This is particularly the case if you are using the Normal to Oily system, as Exfoderm® Forte contains an alpha hydroxy and that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. It is very important to always wear a sunscreen, like Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50 in the Nu-Derm System, reapply sun protection every few hours while exposed to the sun, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure.
Why should I use all the products in the Nu-Derm System?
All the products in the Nu-Derm System are specifically designed to work together to provide you with the best results. When used as a system, the prescription-strength ingredients work to effectively balance the pH level of your skin and penetrate into the layers of your skin for optimal results. Your skin care physician will guide you in using the system based on his or her assessment of your needs.
