Obagi Medical Line

Dr. Sparano and his team of aestheticians are proud to offer the skin care products of the Obagi medical line. Obagi skin care products are of the best in the world. The Obagi Skin Care Systems are multi-product formulations designed to address specific skin care needs ranging from photodamage and aging skin to rosacea and acne.

The Obagi Nu-Derm® System is the #1 prescription-strength, physician-dispensed skin care system. Completion of the full system yields more youthful, healthier, radiant skin with unparalleled aesthetic results.

Use of the Obagi Nu-Derm System provokes 4 phases of transformation.

Phase 1: Out With the Old (Weeks 1-6)
Promotes cellular turnover by penetrating the layers of your skin.

  • Old, dead skin cells are pushed to the surface and replaced with fresh cells
  • Pigmented skin cells begin to become regulated, creating a more even-toned appearance

Phase 2: In With the New (Weeks 7-12)
Smoother, softer, clearer skin is created.

  • The skin begins producing normal, healthy cells
  • Pigment-producing cells are distributing melanin more evenly
  • Collagen production is stimulated
  • The skin begins to acclimate to the active ingredients of the system

Phase 3: Healthy Glow (Weeks 13-18)
The skin cells are in the process of transformation.

  • Collagen production continues
  • The skin is smooth, naturally-hydrated, evenly-colored, and more resilient
  • The skin is becoming firmer and tighter with improved clarity and a healthy glow

Phase 4: The New Skin (typically lasts indefinitely, with maintenance)
You can enjoy a complexion that’s smoother, clearer, and firmer, but remember maintenance therapy is necessary for continued, long-term success!
