Radiant Peel to Complement the Obagi Nuderm System Exfoliation


Patients are often intimidated by the duration of peeling and redness associated with the Obagi Nuderm system.  The peeling is induced by the Exfoderm and Tretinoin topical treatments and may last anywhere for 6 weeks to 12 weeks.  Gradually, the skin will increase its tolerance and the redness will decrease over time.

In patients concerned about the peeling, our office has begun to employ an exclusive Radiant peel developed by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian in order to lessen the exfoliative burden of the process.  The peel complements the Obagi Nuderm system and stimulates the skin to restore function. 

"The Radiant peel is outstanding for patients with large pores and oily skin," comments Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. 

The Obagi Nuderm system can be used to stimulate skin rejuvenation and can enhance routine melasma treatments.
