Skin Care Review: Obagi NuDerm
by Jean, Los Angeles, CA United States
Lightening of sun damage spots and refining of pores
Severe peeling, some redness, significant discomfort
Ever since I have relocated to CA, I've developed a lot of sun damage despite glops of sunscreen. I also had a lot of acne as a teenager and now that I'm in my 30s, I've finally shaken that demon. I initially considered dermabrasion or laser resurfacing, but the cosmetologist at my plastic surgeon's office recommended Obagi. I've been on the NuDerm system for 1 week now and I have to say I'm really having trouble tolerating the treatment. The peeling is totally out of control, to the point that my skin is so irritated and on some spots, bleeding. I went back to the office and apparently, that's how it's supposed to be for 8 to 12 weeks. I know the endpoint is a more youthful look, but I'm dubious as to whether it's worth all the discomfort to achieve that goal. It's really embarassing leaving a trail of skin everywhere you go at work, and my husband is horrified at the way I look right now which makes me even sadder. The skin becomes so raw and tight that opening your mouth to eat is a painful experience. Apparently, the average length of use is 9 months, so unless the adverse symptoms start improving, I'm not going to last 9 months.
Make sure you are fully prepared for the adverse effects.
