What are the Obagi Elastiderm products?

  • ELASTIderm™ Décolletage System
  • ELASTIderm™ Eye Gel
  • ELASTIderm™ Eye Cream

How does ELASTIderm work?

ELASTIderm is different. It's a one of a kind eye treatment from Obagi Medical Products. By using a revolutionary bi-mineral complex called Copper Zinc Malonate, it works to help restore the elasticity around your eyes and reduce visible fine lines and wrinkles.

So, if you’re frustrated with searching for a solution for the wrinkles around your eyes. And you’re dizzy with the empty promises of anti-aging products claiming to build collagen. You’re ready for an eye treatment that really works. You're ready for ELASTIderm.

Sun damage can damage elastin, a coil-like protein that provides the skin with resiliency or "snap."  Sun damage also degrades type I Collagen.  Damaged collagen is not able to be as supportive as healthy collagen.  Elastiderm combats these types of sun damage.  A little bit of Elastiderm goes a long way.


  • Restores Elasticity
  • Builds Collagen

What is Obagi Nu-derm

The Obagi System recognizes that your skin is a living organ (in fact it is the largest organ) with interacting functions. Just treating the symptoms (such as dryness or oiliness) isn't enough.  To achieve (and maintain) skin health, you must correct the underlying problems & stimulate the growth of new and healthy skin cells. The Obagi Nu-Derm System creates this opportunity with a daily regimen of about five simple steps.

What is Obagi-C Rx System? no it's not a Honda Vehicle.

In April 2004, the Company continued its legacy as a leader in skin health systems, by launching a successful new system of products, the Obagi-C Rx System. As the first and only prescription strength Vitamin C and hydroquinone System, it has been a huge success with both patients and physicians.

Who is Obagi Medical Products, Inc?

Headquartered in Long Beach, California, Obagi Medical Products, Inc. is a pharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures, markets and sells proprietary prescription skin care Systems. The Systems are designed to prevent and improve the most common and visible skin disorders in adult skin. The Obagi Nu-Derm System products were created in 1988 by Dr. Zein E. Obagi and other leading experts. Dr. Obagi and his partners began manufacturing and selling the products, and nine years later, the company's name was changed to Obagi Medical Products, Inc. with Dr. Obagi serving as the company's Chief Medical Officer and a member of the Board of Directors up until 2006.


Prescription strength.  So where can I get it?

Because the Obagi System products contain prescription strength formulations, the systems are only available through physicians, which include over 3,500 in the United States, primarily dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas and other skin care specialists.

How often do I use Elastiderm Eye products by Obagi?

For best results, use Elastiderm eye gel or cream twice a day (morning and night).  This way you're reducing visible fine lines throughout the day and throughout the night.

Which should I choose? Elastiderm Gel or Elastiderm Cream?

The results are about the same.  Some use the Gel in the morning and the cream at night.  It's a matter of personal preference.  Twice a day application of Elastiderm is the key and either one should be fine.  Many who have normal to dry skin prefer the eye cream, and those who have normal to oily skin may prefer the eye gel.  Those that live in a tropical type climate may prefer the eye gel.  Some use the gel in the summer and cream in the winter.
