Nu-Derm is not just one skin care product. It is a combination of creams and cleansers that complement each other with the goal of restoring skin to a healthier and younger-appearing state. The products are easily applied, and their morning and evening usage are well outlined.
First developed in 1988 by the legendary Dr. Zein Obagi, Nu-Derm remains the gold standard of skin care. This specific combination approach has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and sagging skin.
The combination effect promotes healthy skin cells on the surface while also promoting new collagen below the surface. These products also help to regulate skin pigment, reducing overall discoloration, (as previously noted) age spots, and even melasma.
While we have generally good results in treating melasma with various laser treatments, there is a small subset of people who continue to have this embarrassing discoloration. The Nu-Derm system, combined with prescription strength tretinoin cream, has been proved in multi-center studies to improve moderate to severe melasma.
Since melasma is a chronic and long-term condition, the Nu-Derm system needs to be used daily for 3-6 months to see significant results, and will need to be used less frequently to maintain the improvement. However, this system is an effective treatment for such a stubborn problem, something we didn’t have years ago.
Give us a call at 207-873-2158 or drop by our Augusta office to discuss Nu-Derm with Becky or Denise. If Nu-Derm is not right for you, we offer other Obagi or Maine Laser Skin Care endorsed products that will be.
