Obagi Skin Care Q & A

What is Obagi Medical skincare?

Obagi Medical is an innovative skincare line that has been at the forefront of skin health and cosmetic dermatology for more than three decades. Obagi Medical products are designed to optimize skin health based on the latest advances in skin therapy technologies and exclusive formulas.

First developed by board-certified and practicing dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi in the late 1980s, the Obagi Medical skincare line aims to bridge the gap between therapeutic clinical skin treatments and daily at-home care.

The comprehensive line of Obagi Medical products can help you experience continuously healthy skin regardless of your age, ethnicity, or skin condition.

What types of Obagi Medical products are available?

The Obagi Medical line has a wide range of skincare products designed to help minimize the appearance of premature skin aging, sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation.

This premier clinical line — which is available only through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and other medical skin experts — includes gentle hydrating cleansers, exfoliants, toners, moisturizers, peels, sunscreen, and everything in between.

Whether you’ve been blessed with balanced, problem-free skin or you’re dealing with a chronic skin condition like acne, Obagi Medical has a product that will help you maintain optimal skin health. Products include:


Obagi Medical cleansers gently remove irritants and surface debris for a clear complexion. Obagi Nu-Derm® Gentle Cleanser is ideal for normal to dry skin, or sensitive skin, thanks to its mild ingredients. This cleanser nourishes and moisturizes as it cleans, leaving your skin feeling balanced and perfectly hydrated.


Obagi Medical’s complete line of toners includes Nu-Derm® Toner, an indispensable product that contains a refreshing blend of natural ingredients that hydrate and soothe your skin, including aloe vera, witch hazel, and sage.


These Obagi products assist in the removal of dead cells for ultimate skin surface renewal. Exfoderm®, a lightweight exfoliant lotion that contains phytic acid, helps accelerate cellular turnover at the surface level for a brighter complexion.

How do I know which products to choose?

As a skincare expert, Dr. Irizarry knows it can be challenging to choose products that best support your personal skincare regimen, especially when there’s such a wide range of products available.

After assessing your skin and discussing any ongoing problems that may affect its health, she can help you build a daily routine that meets your unique needs. This includes helping you select the products that help you achieve optimal skin health and beauty.

Because some of the clinical skincare treatments at Dr. Irizarry’s office are performed with Obagi Medical skincare products, you also have the opportunity to try them out before you make them part of your daily regimen.
