With the recent changes to the Obagi Nu-Derm Fx system, we’ve gotten quite a few questions about what each product does for your skin, and how to maximize your results. So we decided to write up a quick explanation of how each Obagi Nu-Derm Fx product works and why pairing the entire system with a Clarisonic Pro will help you get the best results fastest.

The facials, peels, and laser treatments you get at our office provide a great jump start to restoring your skin to optimal health, but did you know that as much as 80% of your results depend on what you do for your skin daily at home. The intent of the Obagi Nu-Derm Fx system is to improve the signs of aging skin such as:

  • Helping clarify and brighten your skin
  • Improving the appearance of blotchy, or otherwise discolored skin, often called age or sun spots
  • Evening out your skin tone

Step 1: Cleansing
The Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser or Foaming Gel gently remove impurities, oil, and makeup. We recommend the use of the Clarisonic Pro in the cleansing step because, in each 60-second treatment, it:

  • Removes six times more makeup than just washing your face with a washcloth
  • Removes twice as much dirt and oil than washing by hand
  • Cleans your skin so well, that products like your Obagi system or other skin treatments absorb better
  • Clears your pores and reduces the appearance of pore size by gently flexing your skin to dislodge and remove deep-down dirt and oils
  • Is very gentle for all skin types, including skin affected by complicated conditions such as rosacea

Step 2: Toning
The Obagi Nu-Derm toner adjusts the pH of the skin, which allows for increased penetration of the rest of the system.

Step 3: Clear Fx
This skin-brightening cream evens out your skin tone.

Step 4: Exfoderm or Exfoderm Forte

These products remove old skin cells while promoting new skin cells for a lighter complexion. Exfoderm Forte provides a deeper exfoliation.

Step 5: Blend Fx plus a Tretinoin cream (if prescribed)
The Blend Fx product brightens, exfoliates, and adds antioxidants to your skin. The Tretinoin cream helps lessen fine lines, reduce hyper-pigmentation, and reduce skin roughness.

Step 6: Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35
Once you’ve revealed new skin cells and infused them with the above antioxidants and skin brighteners, you’ll want to protect your fresher, younger skin with a quality skin protection.
