HOW DOES ZO SKIN HEALTH WORK?
ZO Skin Health treats problem skin, first by activating and then stimulating skin cells to repair, replenish, and maintain themselves. Instead of continually applying moisturisers to temporarily plump up the surface dead skin cells, which can fade the appearance of fine lines, ZO works by feeding the skin from the inside & out, so you do not have to rely on these temporary/quick-fix methods. This results in healthier more youthful-looking skin.
ZO products work through a multi-step process:
- Cleanse and Scrub – To get rid of any surface debris on the skin and slough away any dead skin cells.
- Oil Control and Tone – To either control excess oil production or soothe dry skin.
- Treatment – To prepare the barrier of the skin to maximise the absorption of the active ingredients, for optimum effect.
- Calm and Nourish – To soothe the skin from irritation and provide hydration, as well as anti-inflammatory action.
- Protect – To prevent any further skin damage, with protection against UVA and UVB rays from the sun, as well as HEV (high energy visible) or blue light.
ZO is an incredibly effective product due to the high concentrations of active ingredients. It is important everyone wishing to use the ZO range comes in for a full consultation and skin analysis so the most appropriate products can be chosen for your skin type. During your consultation, you will receive a tailor-made treatment regime that prepares and treats the skin with gentle or intensive formulations according to your unique skin care requirements.
ZO skin health may be a stand-alone treatment program or in conjunction with other aesthetic treatments, such as our Micro-Needling with Derma pen or Chemical Peel treatments.
Is ZO skin right for me?
ZO products are suitable for all skin types and ages. However, they may not be compatible with certain skin conditions or medications. When you book in for your skin assessment, we will make sure we go over everything thoroughly so you are confident that that ZO products will compliment your skin type.
Why choose Medical grade skin care?
Zo Skin Health has been created by Zein Obagi one of the top dermatologists in the world. The skin care products contain many active potent ingredients in therapeutic concentrations with sophisticated delivery systems to ensure they reach the beneficiary skin cells from the intended purpose.
How long will it take to see results?
It takes approximately 6 weeks of using ZO products before the effects become visible; you will continue to see positive results as you carry on with the regimen. However, in some cases improvements can be seen in two weeks. It is important to note, that although the products will improve the visible signs of ageing, they do not stop the ageing process (as with any skin care brand).
Are there any reported side effects?
Retinol (Vitamin A) is a powerful anti-ageing product that encourages healthy action in cells, as well as promoting cell renewal and growth. This will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, because retinol is so potent, it can cause irritation to the skin, as well as peeling, which is a completely normal reaction as you start to build up a tolerance to these concentrated formulations.
Anyone wishing to book a peel must have prepped their skin using the ZO products, six weeks prior to the peel, so the skin is prepped and accustomed to the strength of these products.
Important: Do not be tempted to buy products over the internet as ZO skin health is prescription only by medical professionals. A full assessment of your skin will determine what is, and is not, suitable for you to use.
Pregnant and breast-feeding women should avoid treatment unless they have permission from their GP.
