The Nu-Derm System is the physician-dispensed, prescription-strength skin care system that can actually transform your skin at the cellular level. By addressing the signs of photodamage and restoring the healthy function of your skin cells, this system is clinically proven to result in younger- and healthier-looking skin.

How it works

What are the effects of photodamage on your skin?

As your skin ages and is exposed to UVA and UVB rays, the turnover of skin cells slows significantly, throwing off the balance between the growth of healthy new cells and the sloughing of old, damaged cells. Additionally, collagen and elastin begin to break down, causing the skin to lose resilience resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Daily exposure to UV light then accelerates this aging process and may cause uneven coloring.

Signs of photodamage and aging

  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rough skin
  • Skin laxity
  • Erythema (Redness)
  • Sallowness (Complexion)
  • Hyperpigmentation (Discoloration)

How does the Nu-Derm System transform your skin?

The Nu-Derm System penetrates below the surface of your skin to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level and correct the damage within.

Using a specific dose and frequency that’s recommended specifically by your skin care professional for your skin condition, the prescription-strength system exfoliates old skin leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.

Before and After Treatment:


Clinical evidence

Regardless of skin type and condition, the Nu-Derm System has repeatedly demonstrated clinically-significant results. In a recent clinical study involving 301 patients, the Nu-Derm System showed 2-3 times greater improvement than other commonly used stand alone treatments.*

In only 12 weeks, patients with mild to moderate photodamaged skin enjoyed greater improvements in key measures of photodamage, including wrinkles, firmness and hyperpigmentation.

The Nu-Derm System is clinically proven to have…

  • 3x greater improvement in reducing mottled hyperpigmentation and sallowness than a hydroquinone treatment
  • 6x greater improvement in reducing fine lines and wrinkles than the most commonly recommended over-the counter skin care products

Who should use the Nu-Derm System?

If you’ve experienced occasional sunburns, daily sun exposure, hormonal changes, stress and environmental pollution, then your skin will likely show signs of premature aging or occasional acne flares.Your genetic history may also make you more prone to the effects of aging skin. Talk with your skin care professional about how the Nu-Derm System can be tailored to your skin care goals and your skin type.
