Obagi Skin Systems, made by leading global skin care experts Obagi Medical Inc, include a range of specialist skin care products, each designed with a specific skin concern in mind. The products are designed to be used under medical supervision and are all clinically proven, working at the cellular level to help improve your skin cell function, leaving your skin revitalised and enhanced.

We work with three main products from the Ogabi range, but are happy to advise on any of the other skin care solutions for specific concerns.


1. The Obagi Nu-Derm system.

This product helps to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out, reversing the effects of sun damage and aging on the skin. One of the prescription-only creams in the kit fades sun spots in a matter of weeks, whilst the second stimulates collagen production, leading to smoother, stronger skin.

Nu-Derm is suitable for all skin types and for treating the following problems:

  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rough skin
  • Skin laxity (loss of elasticity)
  • Erythema (redness)
  • Sallowness (complexion)
  • Hyperpigmentation (discoloration)
  • Acne scarring

How does it work?

The system works by penetrating to the deepest layer of the skin to correct the visible signs of aging.

As the old, dead skin cells are sloughed off and replaced with fresh cells, you’ll experience some itching, dryness and which are perfectly normal and indicate the treatment is working. This part of the treatment lasts around six to eight weeks, and will result in a more even skin tone.

As you continue the treatment, your skin will begin to produce healthy new cells. Your body’s natural production of  collagen and elastin production will be stimulated, and any adverse reactions should  begin to subside as your skin gets used to the treatment.

This phase lasts around six to eight weeks, and will result in smoother, softer skin.

As the blood flow and nutrient supply to the layers of your skin increase, healthy, strong collagen and elastin will continue to be produced, resulting in smooth, naturally hydrated, more resilient skin. This phase lasts around 6 to 8 weeks and you can expect to see the skin becoming tighter and firmer, with a healthy glow.

Regular appointments with the specialists at Ruby Stirling will help you look after your new appearance long term with the Obagi Nu-Derm System maintenance programmes.

2. The Obagi-C Rx System

If you’d like to hydrate and revitalise your skin for a healthy glow, but aren’t ready for the full Nu-Derm system, then the Rx system is for you. It contains hydroquinone, which fades sun spots over a few weeks, and potent Vitamin C to correct signs of skin damage.

How does it work?

The Rx system is a complete skin care regime that’s easily applied at home every day. It contains prescription-strength 4% hydroquinone and 10% L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), proven to have the following aesthetic benefits:

  • 4% Hydroquinone reduces the appearance of brown spots (hyperpigmentation), and improves general condition to make your skin clearer and more radiant.
  • Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, fighting the free radicals that cause aging. As L-ascorbic acid, the most effective form, it can repair sun-damaged skin, reduce fine lines and stimulate collagen production.

The Obagi-C Rx system is suitable for treating:

  • Minimal unevenness of skin tone
  • Minimal fine lines
  • Mild hyperpigmentation and minimal age spots
  • Sensitive skin that can’t tolerate more aggressive treatments
  • Dry, normal or oily skin

3. The Obagi CLENZIderm system 

This product is specially formulated for acne sufferers, and contains a unique formula including the active ingredients benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, which penetrate the skin and target acne from the inside out.

How does it work?

The CLENZIderm System is effective in cases of mild acne, and is safe for use with most medical acne treatments. It’s simple to use, with three simple steps to be followed in the morning and again at night, and you can expect to see a visibly clearer complexion in as little as seven days.

We’ll walk you through the system, and put together a specific protocol for you to follow, depending on what you want to get out of the treatment.
