Obagi skin care products have been popular for as long as I have practiced dermatology - which is 30+ years. This is because Obagi Nu Derm has historically been one of the fastest ways to brighten your complexion. I originally wrote this post in 2011. I am updating it in 2020 and over this time I created a skin care kit that is equally as effective as Obagi Nu Derm but it is paraben free. I call it my Ultimate Pigment and Sun Damage Repair Kit.
I now recommend my paraben-free Ultimate Pigment and Sun Damage Repair Kit over the Obagi Nu Derm Kit. That said, many people want to try Obagi Nu Derm and so I will share the unique tips I've developed here in my Sonoma County Dermatology office to help people get the best Obagi Nu Derm results with very little of the peeling and skin sensitivity that often happens with this powerful, yet highly effective skin care treatment.
Dermatologist's tips for using Obagi Nu Derm
People from Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Marin, Mendocino and Lake Counties have turned to my aestheticians for consultation and skin care services to help them achieve the great results that are possible with Obagi Nu Derm. Our unique home treatment regimen and supportive facials keep skin happy while age spots fade and wrinkles soften; skin texture becomes dewy and luminous and the glow is striking! Products such as Obagi Nu Derm are the perfect after summer skin tune-up.
For years, I personally had a ritual of using Obagi Nu Derm products for 2 to 3 months every fall. I loved just waiting for my husband to say ‘wow, your skin looks radiant’ over dinner some evening, usually at about treatment week 4. God bless him for noticing! Now I use my Ultimate Pigment and Sun Damage Repair Kit all the time and I get these comments from him all year!
