Dr. Zein Obagi is a board-certified practicing Dermatologist, world-renowned skincare expert, award-winning inventor, educator and author. He was the first to conceive new skin as a science, and coined the term Science of Skin Health which defined skincare to include creating and maintaining healthy skin. It came to no surprise that Dr. Obagi then authored several best selling books including Obagi Skin Health Restoration & Rejuvenation (1999) and The Art of Skin Health Restoration & Rejuvenation: The Science of Clinical Practice (2015).
Dr. Obagi earned his medical degree from Damascus Medical School. He completed his residency in pathology at the William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, and completed a one-year residency in obstetrics at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He is certified by the American Board of Dermatology, is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Dermatology, and Fellow of the American Medical Association, and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Obagi is also a member of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, the International Society of Dermatology, the Society of Investigative Dermatology and the American Academy of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery.
Dr. Obagi’s legacy began with his initial quest to explain skin health, which he defines as skin that is naturally smooth, strong, firm, even-toned, hydrated and free of disease. His definition soon caught on with respected colleagues in the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery. This assisted physicians to achieve better treatment results after determining more appropriate solutions to a patient’s concern, rather than simply focusing on a diagnosis. His pioneering definition also included a Skin Classification System, enabling physicians to determine the best treatments and predict patient response based on an individual’s ethnicity and skin type.
Dr. Obagi’s definition of skin health inspired him to establish Obagi Medical Products, Inc. (OMP) in 1988, and introduce prescription-based skincare products for doctors to dispense to patients. He conceived and brought to market prescription-strength products like the original Obagi Nu-Derm® System and the Obagi Blue Peel® kit. He has since sold OMP and no longer has any affiliation with Obagi Medical Products.LEARN: WHY I LEFT OMP
