How Does Obagi NuDerm Work?
As skin ages, it gradually loses the ability to renew itself. The aging process is largely responsible for depleting levels of collagen and elastin in our skin. However, much damage related to aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines, loss of elasticity, age spots, redness and hyperpigmentation, is a result of sun exposure.
Obagi NuDerm is an anti-aging product line that aims to improve skin cell reproduction while also protecting the skin from further damage. The products work together as a system to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface to increase skin cell turnover. By facilitating the skin’s natural restoration and rejuvenation activities, these products help to uncover healthier skin and contribute to a more radiant complexion.
