ZO Medical and ZO Skin Health products deliver visible results.

Choosing the right skin care products will dramatically change the way your skin looks and feels. Over-the-counter creams and serums do not have the quality ingredients that are needed to repair damage and rejuvenate the skin. Medical-grade products only use the best active ingredients to ensure that you are getting the protection you need.

ZO Skin Health is our newest product line created by none other than Dr. Zein Obagi, world-renowned Dermatologist whose quest in life is to create innovative skin care technology to promote skin free of disease and full of health. This medical-grade product line can be used for corrective therapy to treat skin disorders as well as for long-term overall skin health to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful for years to come. Whether your concerns are sun-damage, melasma, acne, rosacea, or just overall aging skin, there is a ZO regimen that can be customized for you. ZO Skin Health is committed to creating the most innovative product delivery systems to ensure your products efficacy in the skin.

ZO Medical: Therapeutic Solutions:

ZO Medical products are created for treating a wide range of skin disorders and conditions such as Melasma, Hyperpigmentation, Chronic Acne and Rosacea. With high active ingredients such as hydroquinone, tretinoin, and salicylic acid, these products will be customized into a temporary regimen by your provider to help heal and transform your skin.

ZO Multi-Therapy Hydroquinone Approach is a multi-step regimen that is an aggressive approach aimed towards healing the most severe hyperpigmented, sun damaged skin. These hydroquinone and prescription based products are designed to stabilize melanocyte activity in the skin that creates unwanted pigment and dark spots to reveal a more even tone and texture in the skin. Exfoliation and rejuvenating products can be added in to improve the efficacy of the products and restore the texture of the skin. Once the skin is at a desired state, your provider will work with you to create a new regimen to maintain your skins new found health.

ZO Non-Hydroquinone Hyperpigmentation System is a multi-step system that is created for patients who would like to reduce the appearance of the hyperpigmentation with a less aggressive approach. It is suitable for patients who have sensitivities or a tolerance to hydroquinone, mild pigmentation, or darker skin types. It is also suitable for patients transitioning off of their hydroquinone products for maintenance. Containing products such as Vitamin C, Kojic Acid and Retinol, this powerful combination visibly brightens the skin without causing any irritation.

ZO Severe Acne System is designed to treat all types of acne such as inflammatory breakouts, blackheads, whiteheads, and even cystic acne. Based on your specific condition, your medical provider will work with you to find the best products with ingredients such as glycolic, tretinoin, salicylic, antioxidants and calming agents. When combined with therapeutic treatments such as deep cleansing and chemical peels, these products will help to reduce inflammation, control oil production, even skin discoloration and acne scarring, and promote an even texture.

ZO Rosacea System works by combining products such as anti-inflammatories, Vitamin A and Vitamin C to reduce redness, even out the texture and calm the skin to promote a healthy skin tone. These products can be used to treat many symptoms of Rosacea such as enlarged pores, papules and pustules and inflammatory rosacea with the presence of telangiectasia.

ZO Skin Health Solutions:

ZO Skin Health Solutions are products that are created for long-term use to promote healthy skin. Once your skin has been treated therapeutically, these products will work to extend the benefits of ZO Medical and protect your investment in your skin by maintaining your newly found skin health. This product line also contains preventative products to protect the skin from aging and future damage such as cleansers, exfoliants, antioxidants, moisturizers and sun protection.
