Obagi Medical Products, Inc. was founded by Zein Obagi, MD, a dermatologist in the early 1990's. Few personalities in modern dermatology have been as interesting and high profile as Dr. Obagi. During the early 90's, his revolutionary and controversial approach to cosmetic dermatology was rocked by brisk critical peer review and cynicism but is now accepted as safe and effective.
Obagi has contributed to the science of cosmetic dermatology via development of skin care regimens for the treatment of uneven skin color (hyperpigmentation and dyspigmentation) and photodamage as well as in refinement of mid level chemical peel techniques (the blue peel).
Obagi's approach to optimized therapeutic skin care entails a multi-step system that allows for selection of therapeutic intensity to suit each particular patient and skin condition. Obagi's regimen also allows for adjustment of treatment intensity as the patients treatment response and tolerance indicate.
Obagi's Nu-Derm products
are packaged in six numbered solid-container tubes and are applied in conjunction with a topical retinoid (vitamin A derivative/analog.) This overall skin care regimen promotes the optimized treatment of uneven skin coloration and photodamage.
Topical retinoids are vitamin A derivatives or analogs and include Retin A, Tazorac and Differin. The Obagi regimen elements are numbered in order of recommended use and are also labeled to indicate whether they are to be used AM, PM or both. Although this multitude of products can be initially confusing, each product does serve a purpose and the regimen is, in the end, logical. Prominent placement of product numbers and AM/PM indicators on the packaging reinforce the programs product routine.
This helps makes the regimen simple in spite of its many components. Obagi's regimen has enjoyed great success because it combines the most potent ingredients available to treat uneven pigmentation and photodamage into an easy to follow daily plan. The Nu-Derm regimen includes all the essential ingredients for photorejuvenation: hydroquinone, tretinoin (a topical retinoid,) high SPF sunscreen, glycolic acid, vitamin C, and moisturizers. These potent agents work in harmony to create a 'therapeutic cascade' that results in younger looking and acting skin. The perception of many Obagi patients is that the product line lives up to its promise and can produce exceptional results. Our clinical practice experience confirms the value of Obagi's Nu-Derm System
The Obagi C-Rx System
is marketed as preventative therapy aimed at maintaining and enhancing skin appearance without the potential for irritation inherent in the more aggressive Nu-Derm System
The C Rx System
consists of 5 essential parts - C-Cleansing Gel, C-Clarifying Serum
, C-Exfoliating Day Lotion
, C-SunGuard SPF 30
, and C-Therapy Night Cream
. The Obagi C-Rx
System for Photolumines skin is available to patients who exhibit early signs of photodamage or dull lackluster skin. Other patients that fit the profile for the Obagi-C Rx System include retinoid intolerant patients, and patients currently using AHAs, moisturizers, and vitamin C cosmeceutical products. In my clinical experience, both the C Rx and Nu-Derm Systems are balanced and well designed regimens that really do offer the potential for dramatic results.
