If you live long enough, eventually your skin is going to become damaged due to various environmental factors and lifestyle choices. Obagi Nu-Drem is a skincare product that is designed to reduce the signs of aging that are caused by damage from the sun, acne scars, hormone use, age, and other factors.
The main ingredient in Obagi is hydroquinone, which dermatologists believe to be the most effective skin lightening agent. It works by suppressing the production of melatonin, which is what causes dark pigmentation in your skin. You can buy over-the-counter preparations that contain hydroquinone, but the best products (those that contain four percent or more) are only available with a prescription from your medical doctor or plastic surgeon.
Obagi also contains other lightening agents like lactic acid. To use it, you should simply use it to clean your face twice a day. You do not have to use a lot. You should see results in about twelve weeks.
Obagi is recommended by dermatologists, and endorsed by plastic surgeons, so if you have problems with damaged or overly darkened skin, it can be your solution. When you use it under the care of your plastic surgeon, you can be assured that your progress will be monitored.
If you have damaged skin or pigmentation issues, Obagi could be the right solution for you. Dr. Craig E. Berris at the Center for Cosmetic Eyelid & Laser Surgery can advise you as to whether this treatment, or something else, would be appropriate for you.
