Finally Something That Works! Obagi Nu Derm System - Palm Beach Gardens, FL

I just wanted to share with everyone my amazing...

I just wanted to share with everyone my amazing results with the obagi system. I felt I had tried many things for melasma and was feeling very discouraged. My dermatologist recommended this and I couldn't be happier. I'm 3.5 weeks through and the results thus far are superb. Unfortunately, it does not come at an easy price. The peeling is very uncomfortable and ugly to be honest. Sometimes my face burns when I apply sun block, and afte the exfoderm it turns red. There is some itchiness too. But I think it's a temporary price for something that I hope will be long term, even if it requires maintanence.

I need help...

So I did 2 cycles of the Obagi system and everything was going great. Then my derm said it was time to go on a maintenance system because the hydroquinone is not a long term thing. The new maintenance thing she gave me was the brightening complex called Lytera (SkinMedica LYTERA Skin Brightening Complex). However, this isn't working for me! I feel like my spots are getting darker again and I'm falling off the cloud that Obagi put me on. I was feeling so great about my appearance and my spots but now it's all going back. I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? Ideas? I am trying to make an appointment this week with the derm to see what other options she has but I thought I could use some real experience advice and talk to her about any suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance!
