About Obagi Nu-Derm Skincare


Because skin damage doesn’t occur overnight, true and long-term changes take a bit of commitment. Obagi Nu-Derm works exceptionally well for those struggling with aggressive skin conditions such as acne and hyperpigmentation that have proven resistant to other skincare products and brands. The Obagi Nu-Derm treatment system provides effective results for those who haven’t found their relief in less intensive products.


Medical products

This skincare system is only available when prescribed by a medical professional, such as Dr Bawa, because of the high potency of its ingredients. Clinically tested and performance-based, this highly effective skincare system utilises medical components in all of its products to remodel and regenerate tired skin.

Scientifically Proven

Treating complex skin conditions

Complex skin conditions such as aggressive acne, congested skin, stubborn hyperpigmentation, and rosacea are often resistant to over the counter skincare products. Obagi Nu-Derm is one of the only skincare ranges available that remodels the skin at far deeper levels within the dermis.

Fast Delivery With Fast Effects

Suitable for both men and women

Hyperpigmentation and the signs of ageing affect those in every walk of life, which is why Obagi Nu-Derm is available for both men and women. The cosmeceutical ingredients combine to create targeted and intensive skin regeneration, rebalancing acne-prone skin, smoothing the appearance of ageing and evening out stubborn pigmentation*.

Your Patient Journey

Book a consultation: To book your consultation for Obagi Nu-Derm skincare, call now on 020 3795 9063 or complete our booking form. If you have any questions regarding this medical skincare system, please do not hesitate to ask Dr Bawa today.

Your Consultation: The most important part of your patient journey is the very first step: the initial consultation. Here we can assess your skin’s needs, answer any questions you may have, and explain the treatment process. Because Obagi Nu-Derm is reserved for those patients experienced stubborn or complex skin conditions, it’s important we ascertain what is right for you before you commit to this intensive skincare regime. If we determine you would not benefit from this range, then we will advise on other treatments and ranges that are better suited to your skin.

What is included in the initial consultation?

  • A comprehensive assessment of your skin, requirements, and concerns.
  • Thorough medical assessment.
  • Clinical photos to assess before and after treatment (always confidential).
  • Bespoke treatment plan including detailed explanation on how we will achieve your goal.
  • Dedicated time in which we will answer any questions you may have honestly and clearly.

Time taken: Your Obagi Nu-Derm consultation will take 30 minutes. The treatment timelines itself typically takes a minimum of 12-24 weeks in order to affect long-term change.

Downtime: There is a sensitivity period of between 14-21 days as your skin adjusts to the regime, though this should not impede your immediate return to work as this skincare routine is safe to be performed from home.

After-care: As part of the Obagi Nu-Derm routine, aftercare products are included. You will be provided with a rich moisturiser to alleviate the dryness and SPF50 sun protection to shield your skin from further damage while it heals. Dr Bawa recommends a follow up appointment at 6 weeks to assess your progress and make sure you are comfortable with the routine.

How long will it take to work: Obagi Nu-Derm is commitment to correcting years of accumulated skin damage, so the treatment process does need patience and time. Your treatment journey will typically take between 12 – 24 weeks before a full transformation is completed due to the long-term skin remodelling that is encouraged.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Obagi Nu-Derm right for me?

This skincare regime is suitable for those with complex, stubborn, or otherwise resistant skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, acne, rosacea, and even some mild acne scarring. It works to remodel the skin at some of its deepest levels in the dermis, promoting long-term change and healing skin inflammation. If you are experiencing a stubborn skin condition that hasn’t yielded despite your best efforts, then we’d love to talk to you about Obagi Nu-Derm.

What skincare products are included in this routine?

Your Obagi Nu-Derm skincare system comes complete with 7 products: a gentle cleanser, toner, clearing solution, Exoferm®, Blender®, Obagi Hydrate® moisturiser, and Sun Shield Broad Spectrum sun protection. The first five products work to break down damaged skin cells and encourage the growth of new, healthy ones to take their place. They also promote the rebalancing of your skin’s oil and inflammation, remodelling it from the inside-out. The moisturiser and sun protection are intended to be used for aftercare, soothing and protecting your skin during treatment.

Are there are side effects?

Because of the high potency of the ingredients used, Obagi Nu-Derm does come with a few side effects. Soreness, irritation, and redness are commonly experienced due to the regime’s strength, but these are natural and to be expected. Blemishes may also arise as the skincare system also works to rebalance excess oil production and open blocked pores and follicles. Skin flaking is also common during the treatment process because of the strength of the products used, but the richness of the Obagi Hydrate® moisturiser should soothe and smooth any dryness.

How long will my results last?

This medically formulated skincare system promotes long-term change within the skin that, with proper maintenance and protection, could result in lifelong changes. The treatment’s intensity is rewarded with effective results, so as long as you continue maintaining and protecting your skin you could enjoy your results for the rest of your life!

Why do I need to use sun protection?

Sun protection is essential for all skin, regardless of health or type, because sun damage accumulates over time to produce premature ageing and hyperpigmentation. However, when using high-strength products your skin becomes more vulnerable. This is because they prompt positive skin cell turnover, sloughing away the top layer to make way for a fresher and younger one. Regenerating your skin requires sun protection to keep it healthy and uncompromised, which is why your Obagi Nu-Derm skincare regime comes equipped with Sun Shield SPF50 Broad Spectrum protection.
