ZO Skin Health
Why use medicated skincare?
Medicated skincare is designed to optimise the skin’s health and ensure you have the best skin possible. When the skin is healthy and glowing, this can make you look years younger. Good skincare also targets specific issues such as pigment, sensitivity and oiliness.
Why is the skin barrier important?
The skin barrier is made of water, fats and proteins. The skin cells are arranged in layers surrounded by these fats, proteins and water. The layers are in balance and any disruption results in weakness, sensitivity and dryness. Medicated skincare will restore the balance of water, fats and proteins and ensure the correct speed of exfoliation to ensure optimal epidermal renewal. Products like Daily Power Defence can replace traditional moisturiser but actually stabilise your skin.
How does sunscreen help my skin?
UV rays cause free radicals in the skin. Free radicals cause the enzymes that breakdown collagen and elastin to work harder, causing faster loss of these supportive tissues.
What results can be expected?
Results can take a minimum of 6 weeks to become apparent. This is because the skin cell cycle is about 6 weeks and it takes that long for the new cells to come to the surface. Everyone is different so results and times differ from person to person.
Will I be able to stop the creams once I have achieved my skincare goals?
Skincare involves maintenance and once you have achieved the results you want, you will need to maintain it. This will include using sunscreen every day, avoiding the sun and using certain products to keep the skin in the best condition. If you go back to your normal ways, then the skin can revert to its original state.
Which products must I use?
ZO has a wide variety of products that can be used alone or in combination. The initial steps of ZO skin health involved a programme calling Getting Skin Ready - these are products to restore the skin and get it healthy, before we move on to treating active concerns.
ZO Skinhealth has products that treat pigment, acne, rosacea and can help with fine lines and ageing.
Dr Kim Booysen offers skincare consultation in Beckenham and Bromley.
I've used everything on the High Street but nothing works! Why are your creams different.
Dr Kim only sells medical grade skin care such as Obagi and ZO, that are scientifically designed to produce results.
I'm using injectables will skincare really be necessary?
You can minimise your wrinkles and lift some lines with injectables but without a lovely complexion you may never achieve the results you truly want.
I have bad pigmentation but peels and creams haven't worked, can Obagi help?
Obagi Nu-Derm is designed to help pigmentation and can have amazing results, but it does require an investment.
How does Obagi Nu-Derm Work?
The Obagi Nu-Derm System is just that. A system that gives you new skin. It is a series of creams used in the morning and evening with very active ingredients that will transform your skin.
Conditions such as hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scarring can be minimised with this treatment. This treatment does require time and dedication. If you are committed you can see a change in your skin in 3-4 months.
Do I need all the products? There are 1 or 2 optional extras such as eye cream and vitamin C serum but if yo don't use the entire regime the results you will achieve will not be as good as they could possibly be.
What does it cost? Book an appointment with Dr Kim as it is difficult to say whether Obagi will work for you without seeing your skin in person.
Skin Tech is an award winning facial rejuvenation company, under the leadership of Dr Phillipe Deprez. This skin care brand is focused on chemical peels and provides skincare for those undergoing a series of peels or who use chemical peels regularly.
There are a variety of products to treat conditions such as melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scarring, photo-ageing and uneven skin texture. If you are undertaking chemical peel treatment, then I will discuss the use of these products with you as they will help prepare you for your chemical peel and improve the results you can achieve that you would receive with chemical peels alone.
Patient Testimonial after using Skin Tech Products:
"I recently had a TCA peel and used the Cleanser, IPLASE Post treatment Skin Stress reduction mask, the Vitamin E Anti-oxydant and Melablock SPF 50+ which felt amazing on my skin. I now use the Melablock and Vit E cream even when I am not having peels done. Definitely recommend these!". KRT.
