Meet Dr. Zein Obagi: The Founder of ZO Skin Health
Dr. Zein Obagi, the founder of ZO Skin Health, Inc., is a certified practicing dermatologist, innovator, and leader in the development of skin care products. In fact, Dr. Obagi was the first skin care specialist to perceive new skin care as a science. William C. Franckle, MD, FACS and the team at Premier Plastic Surgery Arts is thrilled to add ZO Skin Health to our roster of cosmetic and anti-aging treatments.
Research and Technology
Dr. Obagi founded ZO Skin Health in 2007 to provide doctors and patients with the most innovative skin care products available. Based on cutting-edge research and scientific technology, the products within the ZO Skin Health line address female and male skin types of all ages.
Defining ‘New Skin’ for Better Treatment
Dr. Obagi defines ‘new skin’ as that which is naturally firm, smooth, hydrated, and disease-free. This advanced approach to skin health subsequently helped doctors respond to a patient’s concerns with treatment rather than just focusing on the diagnosis.
ZO Skin Health and ZO Medical
Dr. Obagi’s ZO Skin Health products support and maintain the results of skin treatments, while his ZO Medical line is designed to treat a range of skin problems and conditions. The products and regimens of each are known as “phases,” based on common skin concerns. Flexibility with the line exists, however, an examination by a skin specialist, like Dr. Franckle, is strongly recommended to build a regimen based on a patient’s skin condition, goals, and budget.
Obagi Skin Care versus ZO Skin Health
It is important to note that the Obagi Medical skin care line is no longer associated with Dr. Zein Obagi. He founded that skin care line but no longer has any business relationship with it. Common treatments such as ‘nu-derm’ and ‘Obagi blue peel’ are not part of the ZO Skin Health line and are no longer overseen by Dr. Obagi himself. The ZO Skin Health line may ONLY be sold by board-certified physicians because of their high concentration of ingredients for real results.
All ZO Skin Health products are available at William Franckle, MD, FACS. Anyone new to medical-grade skin care products is encouraged to call (856) 772-6500 or fill out our contact form to schedule an initial consultation.
