Obagi Clenziderm

Clenziderm ObagiThe Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.® System uses a patented prescription formula to treat acne at the deepest levels where it starts.

Like other Obagi products, the Obagi approach to treating acne involves several products to be used in a series of steps to clean and prepare then treat and maintain the skin in a way that is healthy and effective in stopping acne outbreaks.

Obagi CLENZIderm Acne Treatment

The Obagi CLENZIderm acne treatment is a three-step process that uses a selection of three (out of five) potential specially formulated products depending on if the patient has normal-to-oily or normal-to-dry skin characteristics.

Obagi CLENZIderm System for Normal to Dry Skin Treatment

The Three Products and Steps for Treating Acne with Normal to Dry Skin:

-    Daily Care Cream Cleanser
-    Therapeutic Lotion
-    Therapeutic Moisturizer

Step One: Daily Care Cream Cleanser

The first product used to prepare the normal to dry skin is the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. Daily Care Cream Cleanser. It is a gentle cleaner designed to remove dirt and oil using botanical extracts and soothing allantoin in place of soap, which can be drying. The resulting clean and soft skin is ready for step two.

Step Two: Therapeutic Lotion

The Obagi Therapeutic Lotion is the most medicinal of the three products because it contains the Obagi-patented form of benzoyl peroxide. It is the only common product of the Obagi CLENZIderm system used in both the oily and dry skin treatments.

For Normal to Dry Skin – the Obagi Therapeutic Lotion is used as a second step.
For Normal to Oily Skin – the Obagi Therapeutic Lotion is the third and final step.

Contains Obagi Patented Form of Benzoyl Peroxide

While the treatment of acne with benzoyl peroxide is common, Obagi
Therapeutic Lotion contains a patented solubilized 5% form of benzoyl peroxide, a process shown to penetrate the skin more deeply to act more effectively on bacteria in the pores below the skin’s surface.

The oxidizing effect of benzoyl peroxide means bacteria-killing oxygen is delivered into the pores to disrupt the growth of bacteria to clear existing breakouts and prevent future ones.

The Therapeutic Lotion comes in a cream based designed to lessen the drying effects common with a peroxide.

Step Three: Therapeutic Moisturizer

The final step for the Normal to Dry regimen is the Obagi Therapeutic Moisturizer. The special Obagi formulation moisturizer contains Glycern to provide moisture and to protect the skin from moisture loss when exposed to the elements and contains allantoin to soothe skin from the effects of the acne treatment .
