Obagi® Skin Care Products
Aura Skin Spa offers results oriented skin care in San Francisco. We are delighted to offer the Obagi® Nu-Derm & Obagi® C-Rx System. This unique and proprietary formulation is a physician-dispensed, prescription-strength skincare system that can actually transform your skin at the cellular level.
By addressing the signs of photo-damage and restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger- and healthier-looking skin.
The Obagi® Nu-Derm & Obagi® C-Rx System addresses:
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Rough skin
- Skin laxity
- Erythema (Redness)
- Sallowness (Complexion)
- Hyperpigmentation (Discoloration)
- Melasma (Mask of Pregnancy)
For hyperpigmentation and melasma, The Obagi® Nu-Derm and C-Rx System is considered to be one of the best treatment options for skin care in San Francsico. Both Obagi® Systems are an anti-aging therapy that penetrates below the skin’s surface to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level and correct the damage within. This results in healthy, younger looking skin.
At our San Francisco medical spa we begin your treatment plan with a free in-depth consultation. As you begin using the Nu-Derm System or C-Rx System, your skin will undergo four phases of transformation.
Phase 1: Out With the Old (Weeks 1-6)
- This first phase promotes cellular turnover and maximizes the results of your treatment by penetrating the layers of your skin.
- Old, dead skin cells are pushed to the surface and replaced with fresh cells
- Itching, dryness, and redness are normal reactions as your skin adapts to the active ingredients in the system
- Pigmented skin cells begin to become regulated, creating a more even-toned appearance
Phase 2: In With the New (Weeks 7-12)
- Smoother, softer and clearer skin is created.
- Your skin begins producing normal, healthy cells
- Pigment cells are distributing melanin more evenly
- Collagen production is stimulated
- Your skin begins to acclimate to the active ingredients of the system
Phase 3: The Healthy Glow (Weeks 13-18)
- Your skin cells are in the process of transformation.
- Collagen production continues
- Your skin is smooth, naturally hydrated, evenly colored, and more resilient
- Your skin is becoming clearer, firmer, and tighter with improved clarity and a healthy glow
Phase 4: The New You (Typically lasts indefinitely, with maintenance)
You can enjoy a complexion that’s smoother, clearer, and firmer, but remember that maintenance is crucial to long-term success. Our health care professionals will customize a maintenance plan just for you.

LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percent of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase. Lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because bimatoprost can also prolong this growth phase.
