WHY CHOOSE ZO Obagi – Anti-Ageing Facial
ZO Obagi anti-ageing facial is a multi-step treatment that helps reverse the early signs of skin aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, dry and dehydrated skin, and uneven skin tone. This non-invasive treatment strengthens the skin’s natural barrier through gentle exfoliation, hydration, and precise delivery of antioxidants and other nutrients.
What sets this treatment apart from other cosmetic facials is the incorporation of ZO Skin Health products created by the world-renowned dermatologist – Dr. Zein Obagi. The ZO anti-ageing program focuses on common skin imperfections at the cellular level. It uses skin-friendly ingredients that are safe and gentle for all skin types.
Is ZO Obagi facial safe for sensitive skin?
ZO Obagi is gentle for all skin types, including sensitive or allergy-prone skin. We only use products with highly penetrating ingredients that are non-irritating and non-drying.
Will I experience break out after the treatment?
Our dedicated products for this facial treatment do not cause irritation nor pimple breakouts. Rather it helps to calm and soothe oily and acne-prone skin. Our therapist will recommend the best products that suit your skin concern during the initial consultation.
Can I have a facial if I’m pregnant?
ZO Obagi anti-ageing facial is a safe option for pregnant women. The skin may become problematic due to pregnancy hormones, so a facial can help unclog pores, moisturise dry skin, and remove excess oil that causes pimples.
Can I use make-up after the treatment?
If you have an important event to attend, you can apply cosmetics right after the treatment. You may also use a concealer to cover possible redness. Do not forget to clean your face thoroughly before going to bed.
In order to make a tailor-made treatment plan for you, our experienced consultant will analyse your skin concerns, including the degree of sun damage, hydration level, and presence of skin lesions. The whole procedure will also be explained to you in great detail.
ZO Obagi facial works great as an adjunct treatment. It works synergistically with other procedures such as peels, facial fillers, and Botox injections. Be sure to ask your therapist about the treatments that can be performed together with this facial. The basic steps in a facial procedure include cleansing, exfoliation, extraction or clearing of blackheads and clogged pores, massage, and a custom facial mask.
Side effects and contraindications
The occurrence of side effects depends on your skin type and sensitivity. Your skin may have some redness right after the procedure due to extraction and exfoliation, especially if you have a lot of acne or skin lesion, but this is only temporary. After a few days, your skin will look glowy and feel smooth and supple.
There is no downtime for this procedure. We only recommend at least 6 weekly or bi-monthly sessions to keep your skin clear by preventing the accumulation of dead skin cells, free radicals, and excess oil. This stuff makes the skin look older and more prone to breakouts. To help maintain the results of this facial, we will recommend a few standalone products from the ZO Skin Health line. Though you are not required to purchase anything, these products are designed to alter the structure of your skin at the cellular level. It almost seems like doing your own aesthetic medical treatment at home.
Multiple benefits in one treatment
Your skin undergoes various changes as you age. Lines and pigmentations form and become more noticeable. Skin drying occurs due to loss of natural oil and hormones and decreased cell renewal. ZO Obagi facial does not only address the superficial layer of the skin. It starts with deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation to remove dirt, excess sebum, and dead skin cells that prevent the absorption of vital nutrients. Finally, your skin is massaged to stimulate blood flow and a specialised facial mask is applied to specifically address your skin concern, whether it’s dryness, enlarged pores, or dull complexion.
