Nu-Derm® works at the cellular level in renewing skin, improving skin function, strengthening skin, and maintaining skin’s youth and vitality. It is the only system available that removes damaged skin layers, bringing new, healthy, vibrant and younger looking new skin. When used properly, notable improvement can be seen in as little as 5 – 6 weeks after beginning the treatment.
There are three distinct stages associated with Nu-Derm® use: Repair stage, Improvement stage, and Final stage. In each stage the skin moves through its transformation, until healthy skin is achieved. Use of sun protection is essential when using any skin care product.
This stage is associated with redness, dryness, and exfoliation, referred to as skin reactions. These reactions can be controlled or minimized to a suitable level to accommodate an individual’s lifestyle. Reactions in the repair stage are associated with the amount of cream that is used; the more cream used will result in more reaction. Likewise, the less cream used will result in less reaction
Improvement Stage – after 6 weeks of cream use
At this stage, if creams have been applied correctly, damaged layers of skin have been removed and replaced with new, healthy skin. Skin is strengthened and reaction is less. Obvious improvement in the skin can be seen at this stage.
At this stage, skin is renewed and medical objectives have been achieved. The time to achieve the best possible skin condition is variable and depends on the skin damage before starting the treatment. After the treatment is complete the doctor will usually recommend a maintenance program.
