Obagi Hydrate constitutes a revolutionary formulation made up of cutting-edge and proven ingredients. One such component is Hydromanil, a technologically advanced ingredient derived from tara seeds, which drives the hydrating action of the product. Hydromanil molecules form a matrix on the surface of your skin allowing them to remain on your cells’ surfaces for longer. This mechanism of action enables the advanced ingredient to retain water and gradually deliver moisture to the skin throughout the day by continually releasing active compounds. Obagi Hydrate’s specialist formulation has been proven to protect your skin against dehydration for up to 8 hours.
OBAGI HYDRATE IS IDEAL FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
As a dermatologist-tested moisturiser, Obagi Hydrate is perfect for all skin types, ranging from oily to sensitive skin. It is a gentle moisturiser devised to soothe the skin with the addition of naturally derived components such as shea butter, mango butter and avocado, all possessing hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic properties.

HOW TO USE
Introduce Hydrate as part of your regular skin care regimen, apply Hydrate in the morning and evening to help protect your skin. Hydrate is also designed to work optimally with the Obagi Nu Derm System—especially if you are experiencing dry, flaky skin as your skin undergoes transformation, Hydrate will help provide relief and comfort.
Below are examples of three systems commonly used, but these systems can also be adapted if required.
As part of the gentle system the skin is cleansed and toned morning and night, followed by a 10% Vitamin C serum. The active products (Clear, Exfoderm, Blender and Tretinoin) are used two to three days a week, to minimize redness and flaking. It is recommended to use 0.05% Tretinoin with this system as it is less irritating. The eye creams and décolletage creams can be used everyday with this system. When you purchase products you can contact our skin expert to tailor a programme specifically for your needs.
This programme can be a little more irritating but will achieve results more quickly. Active products are used every day, and with this system it is recommended to use 0.1% Tretinoin. At any stage products can be reduced if reactions are too intense.
This programme would only be used for thick, oily sun-damaged skin, and is particularly good for male patients .The frequency of Tretinoin 0.1% and blender can be increased to twice a day if this can be tollerated, and Exfoderm Forte would be used. You will experience redness and peeling with this system, and would be advised to speak to our skin expert prior to commencing to discuss potential reactions.
With all of the systems the use of Healthy Skin Protector or Physical Sun Block is recommended as the systems will make your skin more sensitive to sun exposure.
Obagi Nu-Derm – What to Expect
During treatment you can expect to experience four phases as you undergo transformation to a more healthy and younger-looking appearance. The length of time between the phases will vary based upon multiple factors including patient age, skin type, amount of damage and daily compliance.
Out with the Old
The Obagi system penetrates the deepest layer of skin to correct the signs of aging. During treatment you may notice:
Freckles, age spots and uneven dark patches beginning to fade
Redness, dryness and flaking of skin
Acne or wrinkles may look worse temporarily
These are all normal reactions and indicate that the treatment is working. This phase typically lasts for up to 6 weeks during which time you will notice a visible improvement.
In with the New
As stimulation continues, you begin to notice significant improvements in your skin. Normal healthy cells are moving to the skin’s surface faster, melanin cells are distributed more easily and collagen and elastin production is increased. You can expect to see:
Reduction of wrinkles
Further fading of freckles and dark spots
Tightening of pores
Subsidence of redness and flaking
As the skin begins to tolerate the products and the reactions subside, your skin will look and feel much improved.
All skin cells are in the process of transformation and receiving an increased supply of nutrients. Healthy, strong collagen and elastin production continues and skin is smooth, naturally hydrated, evenly coloured and more resilient. Your skin is now looking and acting healthier and younger.
The New You
You have now achieved healthier and younger looking skin, with the help of the Nu-Derm System. To maintain your skins condition, it is important to integrate Nu-Derm as a permanent part of your daily skincare regime. By continuing with the treatment protocol, you can expect to:
Maintain skin that is healthy and youthful
Help to prevent future damage
Improve the anti-aging effects of your daily routine of skincare
