Obagi Nu-Derm Week 9

Week 9 has arrived! I was mistaken with what I thought before. The 12 weeks is a trial and your first turn over of the cells. It take 12 weeks for a full cell turn over so I am still not done. After your first 12 weeks you can adjust dosage of things like the Retin-a. You can also mix products between the two Obagi Nu-derm systems: Normal to Oily and Normal to Dry. I am using the normal to dry products but I will be upping my dosage of Retin-a after I am done using the one I have. I know a lot of people have their suspicions about the Hydroquinone but from the research I have done I cannot find any people who have had any hyper-pigmentation through Obagi (using it correctly). It is a very safe and solid line. I will go ahead and trust the experts on this one, especially since my skin has never felt better.


  1. I have tried a cream containing hydroquinone to get rid of some dark spots and it ended up making the area around the spots lighter. I am curious to see how the Obagi works. It looks like all is well so far! Your skin looks great!

  2. Hi Whitney
    The Obagi basically works like a chemical peal only instead of one really intense peal it will work over time. Some skin types are too sensitive for chemical peels (ME)so Obagi is a great alternative. It works slowly and consistently. :)

  3. WOW! you are so lucky it worked for you!

  4. Hi

    I have been on Obagi Nu Derm for 7 weeks now and my hyperpigmentation has reduced significantly, i.e., 30% - 50%. I would like to know whether the hyperpigmentation on the right side of your lip went away completely eventually ? if it does, how many weeks did it take ?

    Thank you,
