Obagi Nu-Derm System

Correct uneven skin colour, and spots and lightens areas of darkened skin…

What is an Obagi Skin Peel?

Obagi Nu-Derm is the gold standard of chemical peels.

They are prescription strength products regulated by the US FDA. These products are tailored to each client’s individual skin concerns and needs. Cosmetic products do not correct skin cells, they mask the damaged skin on the surface which is a temporary period, unlike Obagi Nu-Derm which works on a cellular level.
