What is Obagi?
Over the years, Obagi Medical Products, Inc., has developed clinically proven skin health products and systems primarily for the dermatology, plastic surgery, and related aesthetic markets. Using its Penetrating Therapeutics™ technology, Obagi products are designed to improve penetration of prescription and cosmetic agents across the skin barrier to minimize premature aging, skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, sun damage, and the signs and symptoms of rosacea.
Because Obagi systems and products contain prescription-strength formulations, the systems are available only through cosmetic doctors, plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
