Obagi Nu-Derm System products were created in 1988 by Dr. Zein E. Obagi and other leading experts in prescription skin care. This group of experts began formulating and selling these products and nine years later the name Obagi Nu-Derm System was changed to Obagi Medical Products Inc. Obagi headquarters are located in Long Beach, California and is still directed by Dr. Obagi who is the Chief Medical Officer and is a member of the Board of Directors. Obagi is one of few companies involved in the making of prescription skin care systems that is a privately held pharmaceutical company. With this already respectable and reputable stature, one can be sure that Obagi Medical Products will offer results that will surpass most other skin care brands.
Obagi offers cutting edge technology that presents an end result that is not comparable to any other skin care product because they have created skin care systems that involve high quality prescription products with high quality non-prescription products. Because Obagi Medical Products have been so successful, the company has grown each year, launching new products and growing in visibility; Obagi products are now available in over 40 countries worldwide.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System penetrates the skin’s surface to increase cellular turnover and correct damage done to the skin by extrinsic and intrinsic factors. Backed by clinical studies, the Nu-Derm System is considered more effective then Retin-A or Tretinoin products, lightening products and commonly recommended over-the-counter skin care products.
Their products focus on preventing and improving skin issues and conditions such as hyperpigmentation, acne, rosacea and photodamage. The Obagi Nu-Derm System does just this and has been deemed the number one brand of physician-dispensed products in the United States. Obagi continues to create new and improved systems such as the Obagi C- Rx System, launched in 2004. Although a fairly new skin care system, the C-Rx System has been a huge success.
The C-Rx System is the first and only prescription strength vitamin C system available. Able to reduce and minimize sun damage such as freckles and hyperpigmentation, yet also addresses such issues as loss of elasticity, wrinkles and lines.
Considered the leader in skin health systems, they allows only highly trained and educated physicians, such as Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Medical Spas and Skin Care Specialists, to use these products professionally and sell them to consumers. Stipulations such as these should be a great consideration when looking for a skin care brand.
