The CLENZIderm System is a very effective, prescription-strength treatment specifically designed to penetrate deep under the skin, treating acne at the source of the problem.
If you are prone to acne and breakouts then the Obagi CLENZIderm System will help you get clear, hydrated and beautiful skin.
It works to unclog pores and banish breakouts once and for all and is the only acne treatment system containing active ingredients that will transform your skin.
The bacteria that cause’s acne (known as P. acnes) lives deep in the pores, which means it can be difficult to reach with over-the-counter products that treat only the surface of the skin. So, Obagi created the CLENZIderm System, which contains salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. These ingredients work to penetrate the deepest pores in your skin, but are still gentle on the surface. They work together to rejuvenate your skin by tackling the root of the problem, leaving you feeling younger, fresher and boosting with confidence.
The CLENZIderm System includes 3 products for use in the morning and evening to help clear up your acne and prevent future breakouts.
3-4 months is advised. This can vary depending on the severity of the acne.

This can vary depending on the severity of the acne; however, most patients see a difference in as little as 10-14 days. It is advised to use the products for at least 3-6 months for maximum results.
On average 3-4 months, however this depends on the usage of the products. If the products are used once a day, they will last approximately 4 months and if used twice a day on average 2 months. The usage and dose of each product is advised by our doctor, depending on the severity of the acne.
Absolutely! Every single patient will receive a detailed skin regime, which outlines how and when to use the products. This is a bespoke treatment plan, after a thorough consultation and skin assessment.. We will then review you every two weeks, to ensure you are getting maximum results and can also adjust doses of each product if required. This is a very closely monitored treatment plan to help you achieve the best results.
As this is a prescription strength system, a consultation is required to assess your skin first and then it can be prescribed if deemed suitable for you. This can be done virtually or in clinic. Virtual consultations involve you emailing clear pictures of your skin with your name and contact number and then we can arrange a telephone consultation. The products can then be prescribed and ordered for next day delivery.
You may experience dryness and flaking in the first few weeks. It is generally a well-tolerated treatment with minimal side effects. Other side effects are discussed in detail in your consultation.
As the products can dry out your skin, it is extremely important to use a good, water-based moisturiser that will not clog your pores. We recommend using the Obagi Hydrate alongside the CLENZIderm system, which is a light weight, non-comedogenic moisturiser and it is suitable for all skin types.
We also advise using SPF 50 every day to protect your skin from sun damage. Mineral based SPFs are better than chemical ones, as they are less irritant and do not clog your pores. We recommend the Obagi Sunshield Matte SPF 50, which is lightweight and great for acne prone skin.
Some patients may also benefit from incorporating a retinol in their regime, which can help with break outs and scarring.
