ZO Skin Health skin booster
The efficacy of vitamin A (retinol) in skin care is multifaceted, scientifically investigated and undisputed. That is why I use the proven preparations by ZO Skin Health (Zein Obagi, MD) in my practice. They meet all tolerability requirements, have an ideal concentration of vitamin A and are also packaged in such as way that the ingredient never becomes inactive.
The products can be used both preventatively for daily cosmetic skin care and for skin rejuvenation. The effect on the surface and deep layers of the skin leads to a visible improvement in texture and hydration, minimizes small lines and over-sensitivities, makes pores appear smaller and creates even pigmentation and a glowing complexion. In healthcare, they are used to treat pigmentation disorders, acne and couperose. As the application of high concentrations of retinoids can cause skin reactions (that are wanted and expected), products by ZO Skin Health can only be prescribed by a doctor. Zein Obagi places great value on medical management when handling its products, which is certainly a reason for the continuous scientific development of ZO Skin Health lines.
How does retinol work?
Vitamin A is one of the few ingredients which is proven to penetrate skin barriers and that can therefore reach the deeper layers of the skin. In this way, collagen and keratinocyte production is effectively stimulated, growth factors are activated and circulation is improved. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and more resistant again. In addition, melanocytes (pigments) are stabilized and the anti-ageing gene on chromosome 17 is blocked. The products thus achieve a medically therapeutic effect that is verifiable and visible!
Retinols can be used as long-term care for the skin as the skin gets used to the initially desired over-reactions in a positive way and constantly maintains the self-healing effects, i.e. the skin rejuvenation process! Overall, ZO Skin Health products offer an excellent alternative in a constantly growing selection which makes us wonder every day which product really shows the effect we all want.
Moreover, with skincare products containing retinol, you can expose yourself to the sun as normal. The skin becomes evenly brown and pigmentation disorders due to sunlight are regulated!
