CLENZIderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic System for Normal to Oily Skin by Obagi for fast & long-lasting acne control. Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic System for Normal to Oily Skin is a prescription-strength three-step anti-acne system. It uses a revolutionary new liquid-gel form of benzoyl peroxide in combination with salicylic acid that allows for deeper penetration to control acne -- fast! CLENZIderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic System is also available for Normal to Dry Skin.
Obagi Clenziderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic System for Normal to Oily Skin is suited for people:
- with normal to oily skin
- who prefer gels
- with less sensitive skin who can tolerate topical acne treatments
Obagi Clenziderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic System is only available through physicians and works on three primary causes of acne.
- Excess oil
- Clogged pores
- Acne-causing bacteria
The products in this three-step system have been specially formulated to work together to deliver acne-fighting medicine deep within your pores where acne starts. CLENZIderm M.D. is clinically proven to penetrate the pores deeply and clear acne quickly.
Using CLENZIderm M.D. every day, you can reduce the visible signs of acne in as little as two weeks and prevent new acne breakouts, helping you maintain clear, healthier skin.
The system includes:
- Obagi CLENZIderm MD Daily Care Foaming Cleanser, (4 fl. oz.) Gentle foaming salicylic acid cleanser which removes dirt and acne-causing excess oil and leaves the skin clean and refreshed.
- Obagi CLENZIderm MD Pore Therapy, (4 fl. oz.) A salicylic acid acne treatment which unclogs pores and clears dead skin cells. Pore Therapy prepares pores to deeply absorb the Serum Gel.
- Obagi CLENZIderm MD Serum Gel, (1.7 oz.) The only liquefied benzoyl peroxide acne treatment. Using Soluble Therapeutics technology, this Serum Gel delivers medication deep within the pores to clear acne quickly which helps prevent new breakouts from occurring by targeting acne at its source.
Directions:Obagi CLENZIderm MD Pore Therapy: Following Step 1, moisten a cotton ball or pad with Pore Therapy. Apply Pore Therapy over entire face; avoid getting near eyes or in nose and mouth. Make sure Pore Therapy has dried thoroughly before applying the Obagi CLENZIderm MD Serum Gel. Use AM OR PM -- once daily.Obagi CLENZIderm MD Serum Gel: Apply one pump of Serum Gel onto the cotton pad provided. Apply gel evenly to entire face; avoid getting near eyes or in nose and mouth. Wash hands after applying but do not wash medication off face. People with sensitive skin may feel temporary tingling or stinging during the first week of usage, which can be minimized by reducing the frequency of application. If going outside, use sunscreen after the Serum Gel has dried. Follow sunscreen directions for application. Serum Gel contains benzoyl peroxide which may bleach hair or dyed clothing. Use Am OR PM -- once daily.As with all advanced skin care systems, the use of a broad spectrum sunscreen is an essential final step. It is important to note that not all sunscreens are created equal. In fact, most do not block long UVA radiation. The Obagi Nu-Derm Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35 provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection without leaving a white residue and does not clog pores. We highly recommend that you include the use of this sunscreen when using CLENZIderm MD Acne Therapeutic System for acne.
Use AM OR PM -- once daily. Wet face with warm water. Dispense a dime-sized amount of Daily Care Foaming Cleanser into the palm of your hand. Lather and gently massage Daily Care Foaming Cleanser over entire face for at least 20 to 30 seconds. Avoid getting Daily Care Foaming Cleanser in eyes. Rinse skin thoroughly and pat dry. Wait 10 to 15 minutes to allow skin to dry completely before applying Obagi CLENZIderm MD Pore Therapy.
- Obagi CLENZIderm MD Daily Care Foaming Cleanser:
If excessive tingling or stinging occurs, reduce the frequency of use.
Some people may be sensitive to products containing salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide. We recommend that you do not use any other skincare products with this acne system unless directed by your physician. We also recommend that you start on this system slowly by applying small amounts of each product on your forearm and checking for adverse reactions in 24 hours before using these products on your face or other areas for acne. Minor redness is acceptable, however, itching, blistering or excessive inflammation would be reasons to avoid these products.

Pregnancy and Nursing Advisory
In an effort to avoid injury to the developing baby, most skin care topicals have not been clinically tested on pregnant or nursing women; therefore, we advise that they not be used. Products containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid,hydroquinoine and tretinoin or similar topicals such as products containing retinol should NOT be used when pregnant or nursing. You should also discontinue the use of skin care products containing these ingredients for at least one month before contemplating pregnancy. If in doubt, please refer to the product insert for further information and consult with your physician.
