Obagi Nu-Derm® System

As a child, I spent my summers at the pool and the local tennis court. Fair-skinned and not well-informed about sunscreen meant living with “rosy” cheeks and a constantly sunburned nose.

In my 30s, after the removal of a basal cell carcinoma above my lip and the yearly ritual of the dermatologist freezing the multiple actinic keratoses on my face, I realized the extent of my skin damage. My mom, who has now been using Obagi for 32 years, encouraged me to give Obagi a try.

As a self-proclaimed low-maintenance outdoorsy type, I balked at the idea of using products with multiple steps. I didn’t want to mess with peeling skin as my skin got used to the system. Though her skin looked younger than mine, I maintained that sunscreen and drugstore soap would eventually do the trick. They didn’t.

Last year at Christmas, at the age of 41, I started using Obagi. Within a few weeks, a friend stopped in her tracks and asked, “What are you using on your skin?”

The steps only take a minute or two; the peeling phase passed quickly and painlessly. For the first time, I feel confident about my skin. My pores are smaller, my wrinkles are softening, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about using Obagi. I can’t wait to see the transformation that I know will come with continued use. If only I hadn’t been so stubborn for so long!

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