Common Queries Regarding This Procedure

How does it work?

The product range works in synergy. Each product supports and encourages the positive effect in each layer.

There are 4 main steps

A. PREPARE: Cleanse and tone to achieve the correct ph of skin surface to allow products to work.
(4% Hydroquinone) corrects pigmentation.
: Exfoderm (chemical exfoliator) removes dead skin cells to allow improved penetration of product.
C. STIMULATE : Blender (Hydroquinone and carrier products) + Tretinoin (increases cell division and turnover)
These products together improve collagen production in approx 12 weeks
D. PROTECT : Sun Protection SPF50 must be used as skin is more sensitive to burning in the sun while using these products.

How long does it last?

It depends on what you are using it for and what levels of sun, stress and pollutant exposure your skin is exposed to. You can only use the system for a maximum of 24 weeks in a year. Courses can be repeated annually to keep boosting the results and keep your skin at its optimum health.
1. Cleanser and Toner 12-18 weeks
2. Clear 57 grams Approx 8weeks
3. Exfoderm 57 grams Approx 16weeks
4. Blender 57 grams Approx 16 weeks
5. Tretinoin 20 grams Approx 6-8 weeks

For whom is it not suitable ?

It is unsuitable for more complex darker skin types

Can it be combined with other treatments?

It can be combined with injectable procedures but there are some facial treatments where the regime may need to be modified.

What type of reaction should I expect?

During the first 1-2 skin cycles ( each skin cycle is approx 6weeks ) you can expect the following.

Acne Breakouts
Lines and wrinkles accentuated due to dry skin.
Slight Swelling

How long do the results following the treatment last?

The Nu-Derm system can be used for a maximum of 18 weeks which is then followed by a maintenance regime for approx 24 weeks before considering a repeat treatment. Unless pigmentation and skin problems are severe, there would be no need to repeat the
Nu-Derm System. Our skin care Nurse would advise an at home maintenance regime with further ZO skin health products tailored to your needs.


Be cautious in the sun and follow the guidance by your prescribing clinician.
