OBAGI NU-DERM BLENDER (#5) 57G [Hydroquinone 4%]
Depending the depth of pigmentation visible lightening effects can be seen as early as 4 weeks. In the initial stages of using these products one may experience a darkening effect of the pigmentation as deeper pigment is drawn to the skin surface. Typically, within 8 to 12 weeks this effect will disappear and a much brighter and clearer skin complexion will be revealed.
The difference between the clear & blend is the molecular size of the 7% Arbutin used in both.
Obagi Nuderm Clear FX: larger molecule which sits on the surface of the skin and influences epidermal pigmentation. Used morning and night for depigmenting effects.
Obagi Nuderm Blend FX: smaller molecule which can penetrate to the basal layer of the skin. This inhibits tyrosinase and prevents future melanin formation. It also forms a shield between the epidermis and dermis to prevent pigment from moving down into the dermis from the basal layer. Should be used at night on top of the Clear FX but one can mix the two products together in one’s hands and apply at the same time.
