Cosmeceutical Range / Skin Treatment of the Year
ZO Skin Health, the range of cosmeceutical skin care products created by Dr Zein Obagi, has made the finalists list in the 2017 Aesthetics Awards.
ZO Skin Health is a range of results-oriented skin therapies with clinically proven results for a variety of skin conditions. The products are dispensed only by specially trained practitioners.
The range faces stiff competition in a very competitive category – cosmeceutical range/skin treatment of the year. The entry from distributor Wigmore Medical Ltd explains more about the history of this innovative product range and what makes it special:
“Dubbed the ‘King of Skin’ Dr Zein Obagi is world-renowned for his work in dermatology spanning over 30 years. Pioneering the concept of ‘Skin Health Restoration’, he changed the paradigms of skincare, addressing skin concerns at a cellular rather than superficial level, putting him at the forefront of anti-ageing innovation.
“Dr Obagi’s story started in 1960s Syria, where the experiences he encountered propelled him into a career in medicine. Dr Obagi soon became frustrated by the limitations of aesthetic medicine—the focus was solely on the skin’s surface, treating symptoms rather than the source of the problem. Wanting to understand why treatments worked differently depending on skin type and armed with his knowledge of pathology, Dr Obagi embarked on a two-year research project into the deeper workings of the skin. What he found would later elevate him from being a general dermatologist to a leader in the field.
“His success created a buzz around Dr Obagi and he wanted to differentiate his approach, so coined the idea of Skin Health Restoration. He defined this as returning skin to a natural healthy state where it is ‘smooth and tight with collagen and elastin; even in colour, when all the cells are working properly, hydrated, natural and strong.’
“Following the success of his Skin Health Institute, Blue Peels and the Nu-Derm System, Obagi found a new innovation that would shape the skincare market and ZO was born. Comprising a non-medical line, ZO Skin Health and professional range, ZO Medical, the products are based on the ‘circle of skincare’. ZO works synergistically through stages, namely Daily Skincare, Protection, Therapeutic and Maintenance. For ZO Skin Health the key differentiation has always been a higher concentration of retinol compared to other over-the-counter formulations. ZO Medical takes a more advanced approach, with products five times stronger than the Skin Health range. The ranges provide innovative results-oriented skin health solutions to treat everyone seeking healthier skin and today, ZO is among the most widely regarded skincare lines recommended by experts globally.
“Fast-forward to 2017 and Dr Zein Obagi has been recognised for his advancements in dermatology. While he continues to practise from his three clinics, his career has taken him beyond treating patients into the laboratory, classroom and to represent innovations in skincare on a global scale. Dr Obagi’s philosophies, advanced line of products—ZO and pioneering procedures have carved an ongoing legacy and cemented him as a pioneer in dermatology and skin health.”
ZO Skin Health faces competition from 8 other finalists in this competitive category. Other finalists are: NeoStrata, Epionce, Obagi Medical, HydraFacial, Elizabeth Arden Pro, H.A Intensifier (SkinCeuticals), Dermaceutic Laboratoire and Oxygenetix.
The winner will be selected from the finalists using a combination of Aesthetics reader votes (30%) and judges scores (70%). The Aesthetics Awards category judging criteria explains further:
“This award will be given to the manufacturer or exclusive UK distributor of the best Cosmeceutical Range / Skin Treatment of the Year or topical skin treatment offered in UK medical aesthetics clinics. The judges will select finalists who show evidence that their product or treatment is effective, safe, easy-to-use and well accepted by patients.”
Voting and Judging Close 31st October and winners will be announced at The Aesthetics Awards Ceremony 2nd December at a prestigious gala dinner and presentation evening.
