Prior to treatment, a free consultation is carried out with one of the Dr Leah Clinic Obagi specialists during which a medical history is taken and the skin examined to confirm suitability for treatment. You will be fully informed about the regime and a prescriptive treatment protocol will be created for you. If suitable for the Nu-Derm system, you will be consulted by one of our medical team prior to the products being dispensed. Photos will be taken to monitor your skin’s progress and you will be regularly reviewed throughout your transformation journey.
How does Obagi Nu-Derm work?
The Nu-Derm System uses prescription-strength products to penetrate below the surface of your skin in order to transform skin cell functions at cellular level and correct damage. This gives fantastic results on reducing pigmentation, exfoliating old skin and leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.*
It is important to use only Obagi Nu-Derm products prescribed by your skincare specialist and to use only the specific dose and frequency recommended for your skin type and treatment concern.

Will I always have to use Obagi?
We recommend always using some of the Obagi products, as once the skin transformation has been achieved, the aim is to maintain it.
Side Effects – what to expect
Some redness, dryness and flaking can be expected in the initial 4-6 weeks of using the Obagi Nu-Derm products. For some patients this can be prolonged or severe in which case your practitioner will most likely adjust your dosage. Other side effects are increased sensitivity to sun, blemishes or pigment changes.
How long does it take to get results?
Typically, by about 6 weeks your skin tone and texture will improve, and the blemishes and age spots will lighten. However, it can take up to 18-20 weeks for optimum transformation results.*
You will see your Obagi specialist every 6-12 weeks to adjust the dosage of your skincare ingredients and make adjustments to your routine for optimum results.
Can the Nu-Derm System be used in the sun?
We recommend you avoid sun exposure as much as possible. You must use SPF50 everyday (this will be included in the system) no matter whether it’s sunny or cloudy, as any UVA/UVB exposure can cause damage to your skin. Remember, the reason you are using Obagi Nu-Derm is to correct the skin, so don’t undo all the good work!
