For over 30 years Obagi Medical® has been providing people all over the world with clinically proven and scientifically formulated transformational skin care products, many of which are available on prescription only.
The company has a deep understanding of skin biology and how it works at a cellular level which allows a systematic approach to each skin problem. They are also the first skin care brand which has designed its clinical study protocols to include all skin colours and types.
Their products work synergistically giving each patient a multi-faceted system to improve the health of their skin from the inside out.
This is a multi-step skincare system that addresses hyperpigmentation and visible signs of skin ageing.
It can be used for patients with:
Sun spots, hyperpigmentation and melasma
Rough skin tone
Fine lines and wrinkles
The key ingredient is prescription-only 4% hydroquinone which is a strong inhibitor of melanin production and effective at reducing non-uniform hyperpigmentation.
More often than not this system is combined with other Obagi products such as Tretinoin, Vitamin C and Elastiderm which work synergistically with the NuDerm products to give you beautiful, healthy skin.
Obagi NuDerm Skin Transformation System from £500
(2-3 month course of treatment includes 6 NuDerm products, moisturiser and tretinoin)
This unique skincare system is designed to proactively protect and preserve youthful-looking skin. Designed for patients in their 20s ,30s and beyond who may have the following skin concerns:
Dull, uneven skin texture
Minimal fine lines and wrinkles
Some of the key ingredients in this system are entrapped retinol (gradual release) which smoothes the appearance of uneven skin texture and tackles the early development of fine lines with minimal irritation, and Hydromanil moisturiser which delivers immediate and up to 8-hour moisture protection for the skin.
In clinical studies, there was a statistically significant improvement in the appearance of common skin concerns including pore visibility, fine lines and wrinkles, sallowness and skin texture, after 12 weeks use of the Obagi360® system daily.
It is a simple skincare routine for those who are unsure of using a more involved system, and a great way to get to know the Obagi products.
Obagi360 System from £160
The CLENZIderm M.D. skincare system is specifically designed for acne-prone skin and it is suitable for patients with mild to moderate acne , who want clearer, healthier skin.
The key ingredients are 2% salicylic acid which reduces sebum production and helps to unclog the pores, and a uniquely formulated 5% benzoyl peroxide which penetrates deep inside the pore and kills the bacteria causing acne, c. acnes (previously p.acnes).
The products also contain naturally soothing and calming ingredients such as camomile flower extract, menthol and glycerin, to help reduce the redness and inflammation.
Results can be seen within 1-2 weeks, and once the acne has cleared sufficiently a maintenance programme can be used to help prevent further breakouts.

This treatment is for patients wanting smoother, brighter looking skin, or to improve their overall complexion.
The Blue Peel Radiance treatment is a quick, superficial salicylic acid-based facial peel which takes about 30 minutes, has little to no downtime and results can be seen after just one use, although best results are seen with four to six treatments.
It can be used as a stand-alone treatment or combined with other Obagi Medical skincare systems and facials for an extra boost.
