Obagi Product Feature: CLENZIderm MDPosted on July 29, 2011 | by Boston Plastic Surgery
Today’s over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide acne products contain a non-soluble BPO, a form that cannot penetrate the skin properly in order to reach the acne. The Obagi CLENZIderm M.D.® System is a medical grade acne treatment that contains the solubilized ingredient 5% BPO, a solution that permeates the skin, down into the follicle where acne originates.
BPO effectively reduces the growth of P. acnes bacteria, the main cause of inflammation and infection in pimples. The product is available in two formulas, one for normal to oily skin and one for dry skin.
Is Obagi Clenziderm Right for You?
You can benefit from the CLENZIderm M.D. ®, Normal to Oily System, if you suffer from acne and have normal to oily skin. Your skin should be able to handle most topical acne treatments. If, however, your skin is more sensitive and dry, you may want to consider the CLENZIderm M.D.®, Normal to Dry System.
Other BPO-based treatments are formulated with insoluble micro or macro-crystals that can remain on the surface of the skin. CLENZIderm M.D. Systems are the only prescription-strength acne therapies that contain a solubilized form of 5% BPO designed to penetrate deep into the follicle and clear acne fast.
CLENZIderm M.D. Systems demonstrate greater penetration post application. The solubilized form of 5% BPO in CLENZIderm M.D. Systems is 1/10,000 the size of any other BPO product available, so it can treat acne where it starts, at the root.
CLENZIderm M.D. Systems are clinically proven to penetrate more effectively than leading prescription benzoyl peroxide products because of their solubilized BPO formulation. This powerful medication penetrates deep into the follicles to reduce acne where it starts—providing a visibly clearer complexion in as little as 2 weeks.
