Obagi Nu-Derm® System

I first noticed my melasma in 2009. It was on both cheeks, and I tried to cover it with makeup. After a dermatologist appointment, I was getting ready to start my first experience with Obagi. I went through the entire transformation, with beautiful, spot free skin after a few months. I made a huge mistake afterwards though—I never maintained it! In 2012 I realized that my melasma had come back with a vengeance. Not only was it on both cheeks, but on my forehead and my upper lip. I tried to get away without Obagi by covering it with lots of makeup and wearing hats to cover my very visible forehead splotch. I got engaged this year and with the pending engagement photos and eventual nuptials, I needed to make a change. There was NO way that these spots were going to be visible in my pictures. I knew exactly what I needed—the only thing that has ever worked for me. I went to the derm and bought the entire Obagi Nu-Derm System again. After ONE month, my spots are SIGNIFICANTLY less visible, to the point where some days I don’t wear makeup. Before this, I would never leave the house without eye makeup, foundation, bronzer, blush, powder, and a shimmer powder to deflect the attention from my spots. A HUGE change. It’s been a little over two months and my skin is looking great. There’s still some work to go, but I’m more hopeful than ever. Obagi will forever be a part of my skin care routine!

The safety and effectiveness of the Nu-Derm System beyond 24 weeks of use have not been established.
