It’s officially 2024! With it comes new innovative tech and treatment that will be sure to excite and delight as it rolls out across every industry. For ours in medical and aesthetic dermatology, this means not only exploring new treatment options but improving even day-to-day products like your skincare.
One of our favorite and most trusted brands, ZO Skin Health, will continue to evolve, reflecting a blend of scientific discovery, consumer needs, and a deep understanding of skin biology. We even have several ZO-certified employees on staff, which means they’ve been thoroughly trained and authorized to provide ZO products and protocols.
Founded by world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi, ZO Skin Health pushes the boundaries of medical-grade skincare. From an innovation perspective here’s why we love ZO:
Advanced Product Delivery
ZO’s innovation extends to how their products are delivered to the skin. For example, their Wrinkle + Texture Repair, featuring retinol, benefits from a microsponge delivery system that enhances absorption and minimizes irritation, making the treatment both potent and gentle — ideal for all skin types, but especially those with Vitamin A sensitivity.
Recognizing the importance of the skin microbiome, ZO incorporates ingredients like prebiotics and postbiotics in its formulations. This helps maintain a healthy skin ecosystem, proving effective in treating and preventing conditions like acne and eczema.
Biotechnology is a cornerstone of ZO’s product development. The brand employs bio-engineered ingredients that closely mimic natural skin functions. For example, Rozatrol for rosacea treatment utilizes bio-engineered complexes, for reducing redness and inflammation.
Commitment to Sustainability
In response to the growing demand for sustainable and clean beauty products, ZO has made significant strides in eco-friendly packaging and clean formulations, maintaining the high efficacy of its product line.
We couldn’t be more excited for the future and the cutting-edge products they continue to put out. Here are just a few of our favorite innovative products offered at the practice:
ZO Growth Factor Serum: This serum uses plant and protein growth factors that are enzymatically derived in a lab, improving skin firmness and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
ZO Daily Power Defense: A powerful antioxidant serum, Daily Power Defense uses enzymes to enhance the skin’s natural DNA repair process, along with a blend of retinol, and antioxidants that combat daily environmental stressors.
ZO Rozatrol: As mentioned above, Rozatrol was formulated for rosacea to minimize redness and inflammation. It features an advanced amino acid complex to help restore skin to a more radiant appearance.
ZO Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30: This dual-function product serves as both a sunscreen and a makeup primer. Its unique formulation offers broad-spectrum protection against UVA/UVB rays while providing a smooth canvas for makeup.
ZO Wrinkle + Texture Repair: As mentioned above, this product leverages retinol in a micro-delivery system to reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve overall skin texture ensuring deeper penetration of retinol with minimal irritation.
