FAQ at Happy Clinic Denver
Denver OBAGI® Medical Products
Obagi Medical Products has been around since 1988 and has been a staple of Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, and Medical Spa offices since then. I have used and recommended Obagi Medical Products now for over 13 years because of the consistent results that it gives to patients with issues of hyperpigmentation and melasma.
How does the Denver Obagi Nu-Derm system work?
"At Happy Clinic Denver I recommend the Obagi Nu-Derm for patients with moderate to severely damaged skin with issues of texture, ruddiness, pigmentation, and melasma. Skin aging is a natural process, but daily sun exposure can contribute to premature aging"
The Nu-Derm System helps transform the skin’s appearance by reducing darks spots, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin.
Nu-Derm is ideal if you have:
Sallowness (yellowish complexion)
Patients should know that the Obagi Nu-Derm system is aggressive, patients also should understand that when using an aggressive treatment, they are required to avoid sun exposure, daily use and reaplication of a physical sunscreen containing Titanium Dioxide, or Zinc Oxide, SPF50+, is a must, and use a wide brim hat as often as possible to obtain the best results possible.
How does the Denver Obagi C-RX system work?
"I recommend the Obagi C-RX system in conjunction with Triluma as one of the best solutions for melasma and hyperpigmentation!" -Dr. Phil Hong Nguyen, MD."
With Obagi-C Rx, you’re on your way to softer, smoother, radiant, and more even-looking skin. The Obagi-C Rx System offers the benefits of both prescription-strength 4% hydroquinone and Vitamin C to address the visible signs of skin damage and help obtain and maintain younger-looking skin.

Mild to moderate unevenness of skin tone
Mild to moderate discoloration and age spots
Dry, normal, or oily skin.

Denver Obagi - Tretionoin Cream
Tretinoin is a topical (applied to the skin) form of vitamin A that helps the skin renew itself.
Tretinoin is used to treat acne. It works partly by keeping skin pores clear.
One of the tretinoin creams is used to treat wrinkles, dark spots, or rough skin on the face caused by damaging rays of the sun.
