ZO Medical and Skin Health with Danah at Cathedral Dental

ZO Skin Health Icon-PMS072C


Let’s cut the buzzwords, bogus claims and au naturel ingredients.

This isn’t the same-old approach to skincare.

After all, ZO® Skin Health was developed by Zein Obagi, MD—a rebel, innovator, world-renowned dermatologist and formulator, who cares only about results.

He developed a results-oriented medical skincare program that has become the leading physician-dispensed brand.

It’s for people who want something more than feel-good and smell-good lotions, they want results.

So are you serious about skincare?

How is ZO® different from other brands?

At the heart of ZO® Skin Health is its retinol formulation. Retinol, when used in higher concentrations, is clinically proven to reduce fine lines, sun damage and age spots (which every-day high street products are unable to do). This range maintains healthy skin, helps to counteract the effects of aging and provides environmental protection.

ZO® Medical products combat a wide range of skin disorders and chronic conditions such as freckles & pigmentation, dull and uneven tone, rosacea, redness and acne. These potent products do this at a cellular level to treat disease, stimulate collagen and elastin production and repair barrier function.

What is healthy skin?

Strong | Smooth | Firm | Even-toned | Hydrated | Disease free

We’ll let you in on a little secret about moisturising ….

Moisturisers are designed to give an instant ‘feel good’ factor. They will make the skin feel superficially smooth and perhaps even smell nice; however they will be having the following detrimental effects:-

  • They will be confusing the cells responsible for producing skins natural moisture. As moisture is coming from an external source (i.e the cream), internal moisture will not be produced. This is why people who use moisturiser regularly become dependent on it and feel the need to use it more and more frequently.
  • Healthy skin cells need to turnover, meaning dead cells come away as new ones are produced. As we age this process slows down so we need to encourage it with exfoliation. Moisturizer will only prevent cell turnover leading to a build-up of dead cells which will then cause sensitivity and a dull appearance of the skin.

The solution…

To rejuvenate the skin, the cells need to be woken up and assisted to work in harmony. There is no ‘quick fix’ and it will take at least 2 weeks for the cells to start working more effectively. During these first few weeks it is also expected that there will be reactions like tingling and possibly peeling and redness. Like getting physically fit, the first few weeks can be difficult but once you start to see results and feel better it is worth it. The reactions experienced can be controlled as there are different strengths of products. We generally advise a mild to moderate start to make treatment very manageable.
