Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.™ for Acne


Even with all of today’s medical advancements, acne still plagues many people. As you enter adulthood and begin to feel you’re finally free of the problem, it can easily start again. It is also not necessarily the result of poor skin care; some people are just more prone to it than others and many things can aid in causing it—stress, hormones, diet, and much more. All you can do is your best to keep your skin healthy and seek professional help if you encounter problems.

One potential solution for acne problems is the Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.™ System. This is a prescription strength medication that treats acne troubles when added to a healthy skin regimen. CLENZIderm M.D.™ contains salicylic acid as a key ingredient. This solution treats acne by reducing blemish swelling and helping unblock the pore so that the blemish can shrink.

The Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.™ System is comprised of:

Foaming Cleanser: This light, foaming wash contains 2% salicylic acid. It clears the pores and cleans away dead skin. It also soothes skin with cooling menthol.

Pore Therapy: This part of the system is a toner. It further clears the pores of any excess debris and skin through exfoliation. It is more effective when used after washing with the foaming cleanser.

Therapeutic Lotion: This lightweight lotion is formulated to continue the acne treatment while providing much-needed moisture and calm after such strong cleansers.

It’s always best to consult your dermatologist before using new skin care products, particularly if you have skin trouble. Your dermatologist can decide whether or not CLENZIderm M.D.™ is the right thing for your needs. Just because it is prescription medication does not mean that it is right for everyone with the issue.
