Fact: heavy makeup used to be the go-to solution for achieving the appearance of flawless skin. But, not anymore.
Until recently, most people prioritised concealing their imperfections over nurturing their skin. But, as times have changed, so has our perspective on skincare. This paradigm shift in the beauty industry means more people are finally embracing their natural beauty by caring for their skin from the inside out.
But as much as we desire flawless, radiant skin, achieving it is more complicated than it seems. Our skin faces a daily onslaught of harsh conditions like exposure to chemicals, pollution, physical abrasion, and UV and blue light radiation. Its ability to regenerate itself also gradually reduces with age. So, achieving that youthful and radiant glow requires proper and consistent care.
Additionally, the skincare market is overflowing with so many products and perplexing ingredients like retinoids, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid, finding the right products to address your specific skin concerns can get confusing unless you’re a skincare guru.
Here’s where Obagi steps in–unlike high street products that only supply moisture to the top layers of skin, Obagi’s clinical-grade skincare treat your skin at a cellular level. The result? A radiant, youthful-looking complexion that feels and looks smooth and healthy.
Obagi’s range of products are a favourite among aestheticians, dermatologists, and our dental experts. This is due to the powerful, active ingredients that create a noticeable difference in your skin’s appearance and overall health. Read on to learn more about this skincare range.
Why Obagi Medical?
Founded by the esteemed Dr Zein Obagi in 1988, Obagi Medical harnesses his vast dermatological expertise to create medical-grade skincare that targets specific skin conditions to give you healthy, beautiful skin. These products are jam-packed with active ingredients and come in prescription-strength dosages, all personalised to your skin type.
Why we love Obagi Medical: firstly, their non-invasive topical skincare range can hydrate and smooth your skin, providing fantastic results for those looking for a pick-me-up without having facial aesthetics. Obagi Medical is also highly effective in tackling severe acne and hyperpigmentation–some of the most challenging skin concerns to address.
Who’s it for? Obagi Medical is highly inclusive and is one of the first medical-grade skincare ranges to design clinical research protocols that cover all six skin types.
We can build a complete regime to address various skin conditions, including skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, rosacea, fine lines, and wrinkles. Obagi Medical’s agents are clinically proven to accelerate cell turnover, leaving your skin looking younger and glowing.
But don’t just take our word for it. In 2019, Obagi Medical won the Aesthetics Awards for the best topical skin product/skincare range of the year.
So, if you’ve exhausted all your options without seeing the results you desire, it’s time to give Obagi Medical a try.

ZO Skin Health vs Obagi Medical?
Many patients ask us about the difference between ZO Skin Health and Obagi Medical. Both are reputable medical-grade skincare brands founded by Dr Zein Obagi; however, Obagi Medical is no longer connected to the leading dermatologist, who sold his company shares in 1997. Dr Zein Obagi later developed ZO Skin Health after leaving Obagi.
Both brands offer high-quality skincare products, but their approach to skincare is slightly different. Obagi Medical focuses on correcting and improving existing skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne, and sun damage. In contrast, ZO Skin Health focuses on promoting and maintaining healthy skin at a cellular level to prevent skin concerns from developing.
The brands also use different ingredients to achieve their goals. Obagi Medical mainly uses retinoids and hydroquinone, while ZO Skin Health uses a broader range of ingredients, such as antioxidants.
When it comes to skincare, both ZO Skin Health and Obagi Medical have their own unique strengths. ZO Skin Health is preferred by some for its fresh approach and utilisation of cutting-edge technology. Meanwhile, for patients dealing with severe acne or hyperpigmentation, Obagi Medical’s prescription-strength products are often the better choice.
We stock both ZO Skin Health and Obagi Medical at Cliftonville Dental, Northampton. Our team will assess the best products to suit your needs during your consultation.
