To improve uneven pigmentation, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce collagen degradation and improve the elasticity of the skin, these ZO products work to improve cellular function and are at the heart and soul of Dr. Obagi’s skin rejuvenation philosophy.

All of these products contain retinol; it is the most active ingredient for stimulating and renewing cells. To restore skin’s vitality, basal cells need to be stimulation. When cell turnover (mitosis) is increased:
– Keratinocytes production is enhanced, (major cell type of the epidermis, making up about 90% of the epidermal cells)
– Dermis gets thicker
– Blood circulation is increased
– All skin functions are improved
– Collagen degradation (by enzymes called collagenases) is reduced
– Fibroblasts (which produce collagen and elastin) are stimulated
– Basal membrane is strengthened
– Epidermis becomes firmer, more elastic and with fewer wrinkles

ZO GroupDermal stimulation must be a continuous process. The benefits are needed all life long, but especially after age 30, when skin functions start to deteriorate. When the skin cells are stimulated, damaged and dead cells are “pushed” to the surface letting the new, healthy ones emerge. The result; skin is restored and rejuvenated.
