Q: Why is the Nu-Derm System sold exclusively by physicians?

A: The Nu-Derm System contains prescription-strength formulations that can only be sold through a licensed physician, such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Q: What is the difference between the Nu-Derm System and products purchased from department stores, drug stores and infomercials, etc?

A: The products in the Nu-DermSystem are clinically proven, prescription-strength, ingredients that work at the cellular level to improve your skin cell function. Products purchased from a retail store are cosmetic-based products that do not contain prescription-strength ingredients.

Q: How often should I visit my dermatologist, plastic surgeon or other skincare professional when using the Nu-DermSystem?

A: Your dermatologist or plastic surgeon will talk with you about how often you should check in once you’ve started using the Nu-Derm System.

Q: Can the Nu-Derm System be used during pregnancy?

A: Please consult your physician and refer to Important Product Information on Obagi.com.

Q: Can the Nu-Derm System be used if I will be in the sun (i.e. at sporting events or at the beach)?

A: Keeping in mind that extended sun exposure damages the skin, it is suggested that you avoid prolonged sun exposure without protection. While on the system, you can participate in normal outdoor activity, however, your skin may be sensitive to the sun and heat. It is very important to always wear a sunscreen, like the Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35 and/or the Physical UV Block SPF 32 in the Nu-Derm System, and reapply sun protection every few hours while exposed to the sun.

Q: Why should I use all the products in the Nu-DermSystem?

A: Each product in the Nu-Derm System is specifically designed to work together to provide you with the best results. When used as a system, the prescription-strength ingredients work to effectively balance the pH level of your skin and penetrate into the layers of your skin for superior results. Your skincare professional will guide you in using the system based on their assessment of your needs.
