Acne is the most common skin condition treated in dermatology. If you are silently suffering with acne, you are not alone. An estimated 45 million Americans have acne, including many adults. A disorder of the skin's oil glands and hair follicles, the red, irritated bumps that are the hallmark of acne breakouts are often painfully obvious. Finally, there is a solution that targets three primary causes of acne and delivers clear, healthy skin that helps stop breakouts before they start.
Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. prescription-strength acne therapeutic system is the only acne treatment with a liquid form of benzoyl peroxide. CLENZIderm M.D. is clinically proven to provide visibly clearer skin as early as 2 weeks. In addition, CLENZIderm M.D. is easy to use and does not require the use of an antibiotic. As a result, you can use CLENZIderm M.D. as long as needed without having to worry about developing a resistance to antibiotics.
Obagi CLENZIderm for Normal to Oily Skin is a simple three-step system which includes Daily Care Foaming Cleanser, Pore Therapy and Serum Gel. These products are also available in the CLENZIDERM MD Acne Therapeutic System for Normal to Oily Skin and work together to provide a clinically proven acne-control system that delivers rapid results.
Obagi CLENZIderm for Normal to Dry Skin is also an easy-to-use, simple three-step system which includes Daily Care Cream Cleanser, Therapeutic Lotion and Therapeutic Moisturizer. These products are available individually or in the CLENZIderm MD Acne Therapeutic System for Normal to Dry Skin.
This state-of-the-art acne system is formulated with proven acne-fighting ingredients, including a breakthrough, patent-pending, penetrating formula of 5% benzoyl peroxide. Unlike other benzoyl peroxides, it penetrates the pores deeply, all the way down to the follicles -- to stop acne where it starts. The end result is clearer, healthier, breakout-free skin -- fast!
Current benzoyl peroxide emulsions
Most benzoyl peroxides are formulated with insoluble macro-crystals that, when applied in the form of creams and lotions, remain largely on the surface of the skin, deep within the hair follicles, or pores.
CLENZIderm M.D. 5% liquefied benzoyl peroxide
Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. includes a new liquefied form of benzoyl peroxide that is 1/10,000 the size of any other benzoyl peroxide available.
CLENZIderm M.D. is clinically proven to penetrate more effectively than leading prescription benzoyl peroxide products. As a result, this powerful medication instantly penetrates the pores and begins reducing acne below the skin's surface, providing a clearer complexion as early as 2 weeks.
Three Causes -- One Solution
Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. Acne System is distributed exclusively by physicians and is clinically proven to treat three main causes of acne:
- Eliminate P. acnes bacteria

Advisory: Products containing salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide should not be used when contemplating pregnancy or when pregnant or nursing.
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.
