ZO® Skin Health
Whether you realize it or not, your skin is like armor protecting you from the outside world. Among other benefits, your skin protects you from the sun, keeps out infections, and helps to regulate your body temperature.
As you age, incorporating a well-rounded skincare routine into your daily life is not just important cosmetically but also important for your overall health. Using an effective anti-aging treatment like ZO® Skin Health will help you eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots while strengthening and rejuvenating your skin. Read on to find out more.
What Is ZO® Skin Health?
ZO® Skin Health is a medical-grade product line that rejuvenates the skin and enhances its overall condition. ZO® Skin Health treatments can only be prescribed by medical professionals qualified to restructure skin at the cellular level. These treatments can repair years of damage from the sun and the elements and correct many common skin concerns.
How Can ZO® Skin Health Skincare Products Enhance My Skin?
To obtain the best results from skincare treatments, the ingredients must penetrate the skin’s surface to the dermis, where the collagen and elastin necessary for a smooth, young-looking complexion are generated. Because ZO® Skin Health products contain medical-grade ingredients, they can do more than over-the-counter skincare products, which typically remain on the skin’s surface.
What Can ZO® Skin Health Treat?
ZO® Skin can treat skin a wide variety of skin problems, including the following:
Sun exposure can cause severe damage to the skin. Redness, roughness, and dry skin or peeling patches appear on the skin’s surface, showing the effects of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. However, much of the damage is on the molecular level, including the collagen and elastin necessary to keep the skin looking young.
Inflammation is part of the body’s defense system but can become a problem, causing cellular damage and accelerated skin aging.
Hyperpigmentation, otherwise known as dark spots or melasma, is produced by spikes in melanin levels. It can be caused by hormonal changes, sun exposure, and the use of certain medicines.
As we age, our skin becomes thinner and less able to withstand environmental damage or spring back when we frown or laugh. This leads to wrinkles, discoloration, age spots, and other skin problems.
Acne is very common, regardless of gender, especially in teens and young adults. Its effects can lead to lasting damage that increases the signs of aging. It is caused when excess surface oil, dead skin cells, and other impurities clog the facial pores.

Common Questions About ZO® Skin Health
Yes, ZO® Skin Health products are medical grade and designed to be used as part of skincare treatment protocols under medical supervision.
That depends on the issue they are prescribed to treat and the ingredients in the treatment. As a general guideline, products containing ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and AHAs immediately improve the complexion. Still, restoration of sub-dermal problem roots requires 4 to 6 months of constant AHA treatment. Products containing vitamin C can start to work in 3 weeks, while those with Retinol can take 8 to 12 weeks to show results.
Because they are medical-grade, ZO® products are only sold through authorized physicians.
The number of months skincare products can be used will change from product to product, depending on the ingredients. Containers indicate when the products inside them should be discarded via period after opening (PAO) information. This is usually a number followed by an “M.” The number represents the months the product can safely be used after the product has been opened.
Because ZO® Skin Health products are medical grade and, therefore, highly potent, treatments may result in peeling and/or reddened skin. This is a sign the treatment is working and skin regeneration is being stimulated. These symptoms disappear as the skin adjusts.
