Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Side Effects of Obagi NuDerm?
When you begin the programme you will experience some dryness, redness and flaking, but as you get used to the preparations they’ll subside. These side effects can be minimised by attending regular follow-ups with us, where we will monitor your progress and provide expert advice.
How Long Does the Effect Last?
The effects are very long-lasting. You can maintain them beyond the end of the recommended course by using prescribed products to maintain the look at least three times a week.
Are There Any Alternatives?
We often recommend the Obagi Radiance Peel at the beginning of your course of treatment, or the Obagi Blue Peel once your skin has been prepared with the relevant homecare products. Alternatively you can have a course of peels to achieve similar results, but the Obagi NuDerm system is the gold standard, the treatment that works best of all.
How Will I Feel?
Prematurely aged skin leaves you looking and feeling older than you need to. Redress the balance and you’ll feel younger, more vibrant, more confident in your own skin. You will glow!
