Anti-aging skincare programs that work!!!!!
We all want beautiful skin, but what is beautiful skin? When we ask this question to our clients - most say something like: "beautiful skin looks healthy, is smooth, clear, wrinkle free and firm and therefore looks younger".
That doesn't sound too challenging, but if you have sustained sun damage from the sun’s harmful rays this is a huge problem as you age. Sun damage to the skin is the main cause of the fine lines, wrinkles and age spots that you may already see or will eventually see on your face. But you can fight back with professional skincare that contain active ingredients (cosmeceuticals) that help repair the damage done by the sun, so that you look younger and more radiant.
The secret to having beautiful skin is living a healthy life and using great skincare that protects it from the sun and reduces the affects of ageing. We can help you understand your skin and recommend the most appropriate cosmeceutical range for it, so that you always look your very best.
Understanding your skin
Typically, as you age the collagen and elastin fibres in your skin degrade, plus the quality of your body's hyaluronic acid is reduced. As a result your skin becomes less elastic, rougher and often dryer. Some of the contributing factors cannot be changed such as your individual genetic code and biological clock, but changes to lifestyle habits and skin care routines can make a huge difference to skin problems.
Sun damage - your biggest fight
Smoking and drinking, excessive sun exposure and stress, can all speed up your biological clock. However, of all these ageing factors, sun damage poses the greatest threat. In fact, sun damage is thought to be responsible for 80% of skin ageing.
Without sun damage, you would probably not develop wrinkles until you were in our 60s. So if you don't already - use sun protection everyday as part your skincare routine.

ZO MEDICAL Skincare Range:
Transform your skin to look younger and more radiant. The ZO MEDICAL System is specially formulated to prevent the signs of ageing and acne scars at the cellular level to reveal flawless, healthy skin.
Skin ageing is a natural process, but daily sun exposure can contribute to premature ageing, slowing down the turnover of skin cells between healthy new cells and old damaged cells.
ZO MEDICAL Skincare Range visible transformation
The ZO MEDICAL Skincare Range treats sun damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, melasma, and scars by penetrating below the skin’s surface to transform skin cell functions at the cellular level and correct the damage within - revealing healthy, younger-looking skin.
Using a specific dose and frequency recommended specifically by our skin experts for your skin condition, the ZO MEDICAL System exfoliates old skin leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.
ZO MEDICAL System´s phases of transformation
As you begin using the ZO MEDICAL System, your skin will undergo 4 phases of transformation.
Phase 1: Out With the Old (Weeks 1-6)
Promotes cellular turnover and maximizes the results of your procedure by penetrating the layers of your skin.
• Old, dead skin cells are pushed to the surface and replaced with fresh cells
• Itching, dryness, and redness are normal reactions as your skin adapts to the active ingredients in the system
• Pigmented skin cells begin to become regulated, creating a more even-toned appearance
Phase 2: In With the New (Weeks 7-12)
Smoother, softer, clearer skin is created.
• Your skin begins producing normal, healthy cells
• Pigment cells are distributing melanin more evenly
• Collagen production is stimulated
• Your skin begins to acclimate to the active ingredients of the system
Phase 3: Healthy Glow (Weeks 13-18)
Your skin cells are in the process of transformation.
• Collagen production continues
• Your skin is smooth, naturally hydrated, evenly colored, and more resilient
• Your skin is becoming clearer, firmer, and tighter with improved clarity and a healthy glow
Phase 4: The New You (typically lasts indefinitely, with maintenance) You can enjoy a complexion that’s smoother, clearer, and firmer, but remember that maintenance is crucial to long-term success!
Who can use the ZO MEDICAL System?

In addition the ZO MEDICAL System is the perfect way to maintain the results after an LASER RESURFACING / CHEMICAL PEEL which can turn the clock back on the signs of ageing.
Who is behind ZO MEDICAL System?
Dr Zein Obagi is possibly the world's leading dermatologist who in the early 80's created the Nu-Derm System which has since become the world's #1 professional skin care program for correcting skin problems such as ageing, acne, melasma and scars. Today, the Obagi Nu-Derm system is used by more than 11,000 physicians worldwide and is recognized as the most effective treatment for skin health restoration.
What happens after the ZO MEDICAL System course?
It is recommended that patients completing the ZO MEDICAL System 18 week course maintain their new skin condition using the ZO Skin Health system. Dr Obagi developed the ZO Skin Health range because:
• He believes that most of the skin care products that are sold at department stores today contain insufficiently low concentrations of active ingredients to stimulate cellular activity or rejuvenate skin.
• He realizes that most people who used the ZO MEDICAL System regimen didn't have a continuum of care after they completed the 18 week regimen and many reverted to traditional department store brands which over time lead them back to the original "dull and discolored" look they wished to avoid.
• So the ZO line is intended for people who want to maintain the results and for those who don't want the redness associated with ZO MEDICAL System, but still want to improve their skin.
Dr Obagi's products and treatments have become the gold-standard in skin health. So call us today and arrange a consultation to discuss your skin and concerns and we will create a personal skin care regimen just for you.
