| | Obagi update for acne and scars.
I recently inquired if anyone else on the boards had experience with the Obagi-nu derm line.
I had so many doubts about this working for my blemish prone skin that had discolorations. I have been using it for 3wks under doctors supervision and this is the best thing on the market. Its expensive, but my skin marks are fading, my blemishes are diminishing and my skin tone is evening out.
Obagi consists of Tretinoin .05 (retin a) not supplied in package and hydroquinone at 4%. The first week was torture with peeling, dryness and redness. My blemishes were magnified with the redness! Skin Bleaching is blended with the retin a allowing it to go deeper into the skin. The results are fast!
I am also getting microdermabrasions done and that also is having a great effect on my skin tone and texture. The combo is perfect for me.
I also use Jane Iredale cosmetics which have some skin healing properties and of course I am a big one with vitamins (multi, E, C, zinc)
