I have never tried Obagi products before. Are they for me?
Obagi makes professional grade products that are sometimes of prescription strength . While Odiscountstore.com fully endorses the use of these products and believes in their ability to produce healthy and youthful looking skin, we highly recommend consulting a qualified physician or aesthetic specialist prior to use. We have personally been using these products for more than 7 years and the results are simply incredible. The use of the Obagi line of products requires some discipline and commitment. If you are not willing to make a small sacrifice, these products are not for you. On the other hand, if you dedicate 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at bed time the results you will experience will astound you. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU PLEASE CONSULT A SKIN CARE PRO BEFORE YOU PURCHASE. THIS WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY AND LEAD TO A HIGHER LEVEL OF SATISFACTION.

How long do I have to use Obagi?
You should have this discussion with your skin care professional. Many clients use it as part of their daily routine for life. The only way to keep sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentations and wrinkles from reappearing is to incorporate Obagi into your daily routine. Continuous use of Obagi products will save you money in the short and long term by eliminating the need for facials and ablative and non-ablative (laser) facial treatments. As laser owners ourselves we certify this to be true. Laser treatments provide a quick fix to many skin problems but are not a cure to the underlying problems and as such many if not all of the skin problems reappear in 2-4 months after a laser facial or IPL treatment. Please have this discussion with your skin care professional. Remeber that your skin is a living organism and as such it is constantly changing and aging. No product or procedure is a fix all including surgical procedures.
What is the difference between the NU Derm System and the Condition and Enhance System?
There is no difference; they are identical. Obagi packages and labels the two systems differently as a marketing strategy. The Nu-Derm system is geared towards Dermatologist and the Condition and Enhance system is geared towards Plastic Surgeons. It is a clever marketing technique to differentiate these two professional classes and make each feel special.
How long do the NU Derm sets last?
The full sized NU Derm set lasts about 18 weeks. The travel size NU Derm lasts about 6 weeks. The C-Rx set lasts about 12 weeks.
