Many commercially available skin care products make big promises in flashy commercials and advertisements, and they come packaged in sleek, eye-catching containers. But they offer no clinical trials or scientific studies to back up their claims. These product formulations usually contain a lot of water and other ”fluffy” ingredients, very low concentrations of active, effective ingredients, and end up disappointing people who try them. Even products found at high-end beauty counters and online boutiques are often deceptive in this manner.
At Advanced Plastic Surgery Center, we offer a variety of medical-grade, scientifically-based skin care products that have been proven effective through clinical trials. Often, we recommend these products to help your skin prepare for procedures, heal after procedures, and help you maintain your surgical results. However, we have products to address all skin types and concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation to large pores and dry, rough texture.
Our goal is to help all our patients achieve beautiful, youthful complexions through a healthy, science-based skin care routine!
ZO Skin Care Products
ZO Medical and ZO Skin Health are the newest skin care lines created by the famed Dr. Zein Obagi, a board-certified dermatologist and pioneer in the field of medically-based skincare. ZO offers a wide variety of products for all skin types, genders, and ages, including but not limited to, solutions for fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, sun damage, rough texture, and oily, acneic skin. ZO products were developed specifically to maximize the efficacy of retinol.
ZO Medical uses medical-grade ingredients to create change at the cellular level, reenergize aging skin, stimulate cellular function, and saturate skin with stabilized retinol, advanced peptides, and powerful antioxidants. As a result, the products improve skin tone, texture, firmness, and elasticity, while also calming the skin with anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant agents. This means improved fine lines and wrinkles, as collagen and elastin are replenished in the skin, more even pigmentation and tone as healthy cellular function is restored, and a smoother and brighter overall complexion.
ZO Skin Health offers gentle, effective products for daily use to maintain results achieved from a course of treatment with the stronger therapeutic options found in the ZO Medical line, as well as preventive solutions for younger skin, alternatives for more sensitive skin, and sensible choices for those wishing to simply establish a healthy, medically-based skin care routine.
ZO products can be used independently or along with our other skin care products.
The Neocutis skin care line was created at the prestigious University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland, an international leader in medical research and innovation. Neocutis products are excellent for care after both surgical and non-surgical procedures, as well as for daily skin health. Originally developed to aid wound healing in burn victims, these products are formulated without dyes or perfumes, making them suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin.
Neocutis BIO products have been featured in many health and beauty publications and blogs, including InStyle, Cosmopolitan, SELF, Allure, W Magazine, and ELLE. They are most famous for their intensive anti-aging properties, a result of the proprietary Processed Skin Cell Proteins (PSP), which are rich in essential skin nutrients including peptides such as growth factors, interleukins, and other cytokines. Products containing PSP help rejuvenate, nourish, and energize the skin and are an excellent complement to any skin care routine.
Other targeted solutions from Neocutis include products to help calm and treat Rosacea, brighten and lighten areas of discoloration and hyperpigmentation with an alternative to Hydroquinone, and plump and hydrate dry skin.
