ZO Medical Skincare Products:

ZO Medical Skincare is a comprehensive system of professional products for common skin concerns such as sun-damage, fine lines, dry skin, oily skin, large pores, age spots and pigmentation. Developed by one of the most renowned Dermatoligists, Zien Obagi, whose philosophy is to create and maintain healthy skin for life. We could not agree more. The ZO product range contains a number of active ingredients, including high-strength retinol and antioxidants - effective for the restoration and long-term maintenance of healthy skin.

The ZO skin care system includes a number of new and effective formulations that utilize a multimodel treatment approach to skin rejuvenation (combining agents that act via different mechanisms of action). The key therapeutic ingredient is chillary correct retinol (vitamin A), which is combined with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, peptides, growth factor serums and skin brighteners.

Recent pharmaceutical developments have led to stabilization of the retinol molecule with a fine molecular-coating (micro encapsulation), which prevents oxidation and enhances absorption through the epidermis. The result is increased efficacy and less irritation. Retinol is one of the most powerful topical anti-aging agents available today.

Retinol Based Skin Rejuvenation

Retinoids are regulators of cellular metabolism. They stimulate skin cell turn-over (cell proliferation and exfoliation of the epidermis), promote collagen production and protect against free radicals. High-dose retinol (1% or more) is usually effective in providing significant improvement to photo-damaged skin, pigmentation, skin elasticity, skin texture and skin tone within 60-90 days.

The ZO product range is effective and also compliments our non-surgical anti aging aesthetic procedures to provide longer lasting results. Each patient's skin concerns and characteristics are evaluated during consultation and the appropriate treatment protocol recommended. The system is flexible and is easily customized to individual skin types.

**ZO products are ONLY sold to patients through physicians…not to spas or salons.
