Raise your hand if you are struggling with adult acne. For many of us, graduating from high school did not bring the added benefit of graduating from breakouts. In fact, studies have shown that acne is the most common skin concern in the United States, affecting 40-50 million adults.1

Obagi’s CLENZIderm M.D.™ System was formulated to help combat acne and, with daily use, help prevent future acne from forming.

“Nothing has worked like CLENZIderm. At age 32, I had given up on the idea of clear skin. I thought I would always require makeup. Not anymore.” Jessica, LA

The CLENZIderm M.D System is a three-step acne treatment with clinically proven ingredients that help treat acne where it starts and help provide a clearer, healthier-looking complexion.

Using the 3-Step CLENZIderm System every day may help reduce the visible signs of acne when used as directed. Clearer skin is as easy as 1, 2, 3!*

Step 1: Cleanse. Wet your face with warm water and dispense a nickel-sized amount of the Daily Care Foaming Cleanser into your hand. Lather, rinse, and pat dry.

Step 2: Therapy! Fall in love with our Pore Therapy. About 10 minutes after you have cleansed, apply according to the instructions to help unclog pores and clear away dead skin cells.

Step 3: Finish. The Therapeutic Lotion, a lightweight acne treatment lotion with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) rounds up the CLENZIderm treatment. Apply sunscreen, and maybe a little makeup, and you’re ready for your day! Want to see some real results? View these testimonials from women and men who love CLENZIderm!
