Skin Condition

Skin Problem: The Standard Treatment is recommended for those that have visible signs of aging, such as age spots, sun damage, pigmentation, dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines. This is also an excellent treatment to lighten Melasma, a form of pigmentation common during and after pregnancy. For all these skin problems, the IIHB Doctor will prescribe the Standard Treatment, which is an exfoliating treatment designed to bring out the best of the skin combined with powerful skin lighteners that help reduce the appearance of skin pigmentation and age spots. The Standard Treatment also contains powerful anti-oxidants that combat free-radical damage and reduce the visible signs of aging, and to give the skin a nice even tone.

Dermascope Analysis: The doctor will be looking for numerous things prior to the start of the Standard Treatment. The doctor will check your pigmentation, and depending on its size (large spots are usually shallow while small spots are usually deep), will determine how long it will take to treat. The deeper the pigmentation, the longer the time it will require treatment. Also, he will check how deep your wrinkles are if you have clogged pores, if your skin is oily or dry, and a few other skin conditions. This will allow him to make an accurate analysis of the conditon of your skin and what treatment to prescribe. After the Standard Treatment, the doctor will be looking for signs of increase in collagen in the skin and evidence of baby hair (brand new growth), which suggests brand new, youthful skin.

Benefit of the System

Improvements: After 1-3 months use of the Standard Treatmnet, users will begin to experience an improvement in the tone of the skin. Users will also experience an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Pigmentation and age spots will begin to fade and the skin will have a more even tone. Some users even report a feeling of skin “tightness”. Upon being examined with the Dermascope, the doctor’s skin analysis should show an improvement in the color and visibility of pigmentation, the user’s skin will show more collagen, and an increase of baby hair indicating new, youthful skin.

How does Nutracine Skin Care System differ from other skin care products?
A Nutracine Skin Care System is simply the most advance skin care system available. Compared to other leading products, our system has less irritation, less redness, less dryness, and less peeling. Most of the people who have used our product noticed improvement within as little as 3 weeks.

If I am using a similar skin care product(s), can I switch to Nutracine Skin Care system?
Yes. You can start the treatment tonight.

I just had a laser / dermabrasion / TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peeling recently, can I use Nutracine Skin Care System?
It will be safe to wait for 3 weeks before starting the treatment.

How long should I use the Nutracine Skin Care System?
The TREATMENT part of the regimen should be followed for 3 months maximum. After 3 months we recommend the use of the MAINTENANCE regimen.

What if I still have pigmentation / acne / wrinkles after 3 months of treatment?
Then you may want to consider the alternate method of maintenance and treatment: 5 days in a week you will follow the maintenance regimen and 2 days (usually Wednesday and Saturday or Thursday and Sunday) a week you will do the treatment.

While I am on treatment can I use other products or make-up?
No. We do not want you to use any other products or make-up because of the possibility that it may change the pH of the Nutracine products and may result in a decrease of its efficacy.

What about the use of make-up on an occasional basis?
Yes. For special occasions (i.e. weddings, birthdays, or other parties) the use of make-up is allowed, only once a month or every 2 months—but not on a regular basis.

When I am using the product can I stay under the sun?
Yes, if you protect yourself from UV radiation with the Nutracine Sunscreen SPF 30+. This should be included in the daytime regimen. So, for regular activities like driving to work in the office, walking on lunch break and going home the use of Nutracine #7 Sunscreen is highly recommended.

What if I work in the backyard, play golf, tennis and basketball?
We advise you to use the Nutracine Sunscreen every 4 hours. It will be helpful to wear a wide brim hat and long sleeve for extra protection against sun damage.

If I am not going out of the house during daytime, should I still use the sunscreen?
Yes. There is still a UV light penetration even when you are inside the house.

Can I go swimming while I am on treatment?
No. Because of the possibility that bacteria, chlorine and other contaminants may enter the skin.

What is the youngest age a patient can start using the Nutracine Skin Care System?
14 years old and above.

I have oily, sensitive skin. Can I use the product?
Yes. Oily skin may become oilier in the first few weeks of treatment, due to the deep cleansing effects of the system–if this happens, use clear touch paper to blot the oil on the skin. Later in the treatment, the skin should become less oily.

If I am on the Standard Treatment of the Nutracine Skin Care System, can I do waxing, dermabrasion or laser?
No. Because these involve the use of heat and mechanical pressure that may affect the skin.

Will the use of Nutracine Skin Care system affect my eyebrow or lip tattoo?
No, the products will not affect any tattoos—it is designed to lighten natural pigmentations, usually caused by melanin.

What will I do if I develop redness, itchiness or hives?
These symptoms are not typical, but if you developed these reactions, stop the treatment and use a hydrocortisone cream. Apply the cream every 6 hours and call the office at (714) 808-6400 or doctors’ pager numbers (714) 568-2131 / (562) 466-5554.

Can I use the Nutracine Skin Care system if I am pregnant or if I am planning to become pregnant?
No, the use of the products is not recommended for use if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or may be pregnant.

Can I use the Nutracine Skin Care system if I am breast-feeding?
No, do not use the products if you are breastfeeding.

Skin Problem: Those that have sensitive skin or for those that notice their skin pigments easily, the problem may be Thinning Skin. For this skin type, the IIHB Doctor will prescribe the Skin Rehabilitation Regimen, which is a collagen treatment, that will help to thincken the skin and prepare it for the exfoliating process of the Standard Treatment.

Dermascope Analysis: The main thing the doctor will be looking for to check for Thinning Skin will be the appearance of blood vessels at or near the surface of the skin.

Product FAQ’s

After the doctor examines your skin with the Dermascope, he will be looking for signs of thinning skin, such as blood vessels close to the surface of your skin. So those with thinning skin and/or sensitive skin are the best candidates to begin using the Skin Rehabilitation regimen.

Generally, most users will be on the Skin Rehabilitation regimen for 1 to 2 months, but the IIHB doctor will advice you on how long to use it and when to move on to the next step.

No, the Skin Rehabilitation is used to prepare your skin for the peeling process of the Standard Treatment. It will not lighten your age spots or pigmentation. It may, however, have a positive effect on your wrinkles and your skin’s firmness.

Some users experience mild breakouts during the Skin Rehabilitation regimen, but this is usually due to the deep dirt of the skin being exfoliated to the surface. This is normal and should subside within a few days of continued use.

After following the doctor’s instructions and finishing the Skin Rehabilitation regimen, the doctor will again examine your skin with the Dermascope. Usually, the doctor will then advise you to go on to the Standard Treatment.

Hair FAQ’s

Do I rub the the Nutracine Shampoo and Conditioner into my hair?
How do I use the Nutracine Scalp Activator Treatment (Step 3)?
Can I use the blow drier to dry my hair while I am using the Nutracine Three Step Scalp Treatment?
Will the Nutracine Three Step Scalp Treatment re-grow my hair?

Do I rub the the Nutracine Shampoo and Conditioner into my hair?

The Nutracine Shampoo and Conditioner is meant to be a scalp treatment, so although it is good to use for your hair, it is meant to be rubbed into the scalp when you are taking a shower/bath.

How do I use the Nutracine Scalp Activator Treatment (Step 3)?

After you get out of the shower/bath, the Scalp Activator Treatment (Step 3) is applied directly to the scalp (5-10 drops) and you allow it to dry.  Do not rinse it out.

Can I use the blow drier to dry my hair while I am using the Nutracine Three Step Scalp Treatment?

Using a blow drier to dry your hair may dry up the Scalp Treatment and cause it to flake.

Will the Nutracine Three Step Scalp Treatment re-grow my hair?

Although we make no claims that the Nutracine Three Step Scalp Treament can “re-grow” your hair, it does make the scalp healthier.  A healthier scalp is a better environment to foster hair growth and we have seen, with the Dermascope, that some users have baby hairs growing out of old hair follicles.

Benefit of the System
The Nutracine Doctor Directed Acne System utilizes the latest, cutting-edge technology and combines it with the most proven acne fighting medications on the market. The goal of the Nutracine Acne System is to provide a dual treatment for acne: To combat it from both the inside, as well as the outside. The system was designed for each bottle to complement one another to produce the desired results with minimum side effects. The system works together to cleanse the skin, open up the pores to allow the medication to reach the effective levels of the skin, clear away dead skin cells that can clog pores, kill the bacteria that causes acne, moisturize the skin, protect it from redness and sun damage, and balance out the body’s hormones that can contribute to acne. And the whole process is monitored by an IIHB Doctor to ensure that you will have the safest, most effective, treatment possible.

Improvements:   After use of the Acne System, users will begin to experience an improvement in the tone of the skin. White heads and blackheads will dry up and begin to fade away.

Skin Condition

Skin Problem: The Maintenance Regimen is recommended for those that have completed the Nutracine Acne System and want to maintain the healthy, clear complexion that was the result of using the Acne System. This regimen also functions as a “Finishing Step” to clean up any remaining pigmentation and skin discoloration left by the acne . The IIHB Doctor will prescribe the Maintenance which is a combination of the Nutracine Standard Treatment and the Collagen regimen of the Skin Rehabilitation.  This gives you the best of both worlds; the collagen and skin enrichment of the Skin Rehabilitation along with the exfoliating and pigment lightening effects of the Standard Treatment.

Dermascope Analysis:  After the Nutracine Acne System, the doctor will be looking for signs of increase in collagen in the skin and evidence of baby hair (brand new growth), which suggests brand new, youthful skin. Depending on the amount of improvement, and when you are happy with your results, the doctor may decide that you are ready to move on to the Maintenance Regimen.


AFTER: Good Skin with Collagen (pink-white dots) and lots of baby hair (small, fine, white hairs).

Improvements:   After use of the Nutracine Acne System, users will begin to experience an improvement in the tone of the skin.

Upon being examined with the Dermascope, the doctor’s skin analysis should show an improvement in the color and visibility of acne, the user will begin to show a clearer complexion. In order to maintain these benefits, the Maintenance Regimen will be prescribed. You will be able to maintain this improvement in the skin for as long as you are on the Maintenance Regimen. Occasionally a pimple or some minor break outs may return to your skin and if this occurs, the doctor may return you to the Nutracine Acne System.


AFTER: Good Skin with Collagen (pink-white dots) and lots of baby hair (small, fine, white hairs).

Product FAQ’s

What is the maintenance regimen?
Why do I need to go back and forth from the Acne System to Maintenance?
After using the Acne System and getting great results, in order to keep my skin looking healthy and youthful, how long must I keep using the Maintenance Regimen?

What is the maintenance regimen?

After treating your skin, in order to maintain the positive effects, and to keep the unwanted skin conditions from coming back, you move on to the maintenance phase. The Maintenance Phase involves the use of bottles #1, #2, #10, #11 and #7. It combines the exfoliating and skin lightening of the Standard Treatment with the collagen regimen of the Skin Rehabilitation.

Why do I need to go back and forth from the Acne System to Maintenance?

For those with severe acne, it is touch to remove all the acne in one treatment, or we run the risk of making the skin too thin. So it is a gradual process of doing the Maintenance (with collagen regimen) to thicken the skin,  then the Acne System to exfoliate and lighten, then back to Maintenance…etc. for as long as needed to treat as much of the acne as possible.

After using the Acne System and getting great results, in order to keep my skin looking healthy and youthful, how long must I keep using the Maintenance Regimen?

Some people think that you can use a product, get good results and then just have great skin forever. For some, that may be the case, but for most people, the reality is you must MAINTAIN your great looking skin. The example we like to use is your hair. After you get a good-looking hairdo, do you expect that great look to last forever? Of course not, because you know your hair will eventually grow and be exposed to the elements. In order to maintain that look for your hair, you have to get your hair done periodically. Like your hair, your skin also grows and is exposed to sun, pollution, and other external elements. And like your hair, in order to keep your skin healthy and youthful, you must continue to maintain it, with products like the Nutracine Acne System and the Maintenance Regimen.
