Introducing ZO Skin Centres

ZO Skin Centres is the newest brainchild of Dr. Zein Obagi, and the flagship location opened in June 2015 at the posh Fashion Island in Newport Beach, California. Clients can stop by for a rejuvenating ZO peel, have a bit of BOTOX for your crow’s feet or Juvederm in your lips. You can even schedule a Coolsculpting session to freeze the fat on your tummy, all in the privacy and convenience of a modern pampering setting.

Dr. Obagi has spent over three decades researching and developing revolutionary ways to restore and maintain healthy, vibrant and glowing skin. Just like our celebrated ZO family of products, our signature services are sought-after by celebrities in Beverly Hills, London, Paris and more.

The experience begins with a consultation by Dr. Obagi himself or his plastic surgeon colleague Dr. Aaron Kosins. At your first Skin Health evaluation with Dr. Obagi or Dr. Kosins, you will have a comprehensive assessment of your skin  and an opportunity to discuss your specific concerns and review your medical history. Photographs will be taken to document your skin’s current condition and to be evaluated by the doctor. You will receive a fully individualized program designed to meet your goals. At each follow-up visit, new photographs will be taken to document your skin’s progress.

All treatments are performed by highly skilled medical aestheticians trained in the principles, protocols and methods of Dr. Zein Obagi. The services offered at the ZO Skin Centres are inspired by the ZO® Circle of Skin Health, which takes into account Prevention, Therapy, Daily Skincare and Maintenance. One of our client favorite treatments is the ZO® Signature Facial with Lymphatic Drainage for hydrated skin that glows.  This relaxing treatment utilizes cutting edge technology, including microcurrent therapy, to improve skin firmness, reduce wrinkles and smooth skin followed by lymphatic drainage to rid the skin of toxins and impurities. It’s perfect before a night out or special occasion!

Look for the ZO Skin Centre at 401 Newport Centre Drive, Suite A208, Fashion Island – open 7 days/week.

 

 

Pre-Valentine’s Day Lip Shape Up

With Valentine’s almost here, luscious lips are taking center stage.

The first thing you should be mindful of is preventing and restoring healthy, soft lips. Cold weather and sun exposure are the major culprits when lips get dehydrated.  Cool air, reduced humidity and wind can leave the thin lip skin with deep cracks. When lips get dry and uncomfortable from moisture loss, chapping and painful cracking and peeling are not far behind.

The consistent use of a protective balm can prevent your lips from drying out. Emollients in tubes or pots can also reverse the problem. But once lips are chapped, the more often you apply an emollient balm, the  faster the healing process can begin. Look for lip products containing ingredients like shea butter, lanolin, vitamin E, beeswax and dimethicone. They work to create a barrier against dehydration while the moisturizing ingredients keep chapping to a minimum.

ZO Medical LIPREBUILD Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment was developed to reverse and restore severely dry, cracked and wrinkled lips using a clinically proven moisture recycling technology. This hydrating formula contains plant stem cell antioxidants, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, fruit extracts to soften and repair lips. It does double duty by plumping up lips to actually improve their shape, size and contour while restoring them to their natural, rosy color. Now that’s what we call a win-win!

Once your lips are brought back to optimum health, keep them supple with a moisture-rich lipstick or lip balm with an SPF that you apply several times daily.
