Dr Tapan Patel on why consultation is key:
A consultation with an appropriately trained practitioner, particularly with a prescription-only skincare range such as Obagi Nu-Derm, is essential.
There will be a period of the skin reacting to the products, which patients have to be prepared for. During that time, the skin may go red, dry, itchy or even peel, and it is important that patients realise these are not side-effects but desired effects - we know, when you get that reaction, that the product is working.
There are a lot of products in the Nu-Derm system, which can be daunting, but you have to realise that the old process of ‘cleanse, tone, moisturise' just won't work.
If you really want to change your skin, you have to invest time and effort, so another part of the consultation " is ensuring that patients have the dedication and willpower to follow the system. www.obagi.uk.com • www.acneclinicuk.com
