ZO Skin Restoration

Dr. Zein Obagi is the ZO Skin Health, Inc. medical director and is responsible for the development of new skincare treatments, protocols and product to achieve healthy skin. Additionally, he is an author and educator who has presented more than 200 skin health lectures throughout the world. For more than 35 years Dr. Obagi has defined and continues to advance skincare to include the concept of creating and maintaining healthy skin as opposed to just treating disease and damaged skin.

Dr. Obagi originally conceived and brought to market what would become the world’s most recognized brands of physician dispensed skincare products – the original Obagi Nu-Derm® and Obagi Blue Peel® kit. Now Dr. Obagi, as the ZO Skin Health medical director, has redefined the concept of skin health to include comprehensive solutions that bridge the gap between therapeutics and maintaining truly healthy skin.
