Sculpt MD offers comprehensive skincare to protect and improve the health of your skin, including ZO Skin Health products from Dr. Zein Obagi’s medical-grade skincare range.
This system targets dark spots, uneven skin tone, or sun damage. It includes a gentle cleanser, exfoliating polish, complexion renewal pads, and daily power defense for maximum effectiveness.
Retinols & Retinoic Acid
Retinol is a fantastic skincare ingredient known to stimulate new cell production. This process helps decrease wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne, and hyperpigmentation and improves cell turnover rate and laxity while increasing collagen production to prevent sagging skin. Retinol may increase sunlight sensitivity and cause itching or irritation when first beginning use – For this reason, it is crucial that every time you use a retinol product daily, you also wear an adequate sunscreen product to ensure optimal results.
Retinals, made from vitamin A, can be found in many skincare products for mature skin, including creams, serums, gels, and face wash. Retinals work by entering the epidermis before penetrating deeper layers such as the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, where they stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin for solid skin structure as well as blocking melanin formation to achieve a more uniform tone and texture.
Retinoids are fat-soluble medications that penetrate deep into the epidermis to accelerate cell turnover and help treat inflammation. Retinoids also have anti-sebum properties to treat oily skin conditions more effectively.
ZO Skin Health offers several retinol options explicitly tailored to meet all skin types’ needs and individual requirements. Their Retinol Skin Brightener, for instance, provides powerful treatments to address dark spots and uneven skin tone by gradually releasing micro-encapsulated retinol into the skin, thus minimizing irritation while optimizing effectiveness. In addition, Bakuchiol increases retinol’s effects for more even style and texture improvement.
When used correctly, Retinol can be one of the most beneficial skincare ingredients for all skin types and conditions. At Skintuition Medical Aesthetics, we suggest beginning with a mild retinol product like gel or serum and applying twice weekly, gradually increasing to three nights weekly before finally applying nightly as your skin adapts. You should consult a dermatologist about creating an individualized protocol tailored specifically for you.
Wrinkle & Texture Repair
Wrinkle & Texture Repair provides visible improvements in skin texture, firmness, and tone while simultaneously diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with an advanced micro-emulsion delivery system, plant stem cell antioxidants, biomimetic proteins, and an advanced micro-emulsion delivery system; its composition also activates its natural renewal process to boost the production of collagen and elastin as well as the production of hyaluronic acid as a vital hydration factor for the body.
Retinol is an effective anti-aging ingredient, stimulating new cell production while resurfacing old damaged ones, making it a powerful retinol ingredient. Unfortunately, however, its irritation to the skin’s surface can be overwhelming at first. After regular product usage for some weeks or so, any redness, flakiness, or dryness should subside, and you will have adjusted to it and become used to it. However, if reactions continue, you should reduce product usage or consult your physician about a custom retinol protocol tailored to your needs.
Use with a ZO functional hydrator for best results and to reduce dryness or irritation.
Wrinkle & Texture Repair is a high-potency retinol product and should be taken cautiously. Initially, it should only be applied twice weekly and gradually increased according to how your skin tolerates it. Please remember that this product could make your skin more sensitive to sunlight; wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 protection daily for optimal protection.
The Anti-Aging Program features medical-grade skincare products designed to diminish visible signs of aging. These products have been formulated to improve skin texture, tone, and natural hydration levels while stimulating collagen production and providing antioxidant protection. Furthermore, this program helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, sagging skin, dryness, and surface discolorations for visible reduction.
Anti-aging regimens begin with gentle cleansing to remove dirt and oil from the skin, followed by applying powerful sunscreen proven to prevent sunburns. After that, anti-aging products include serum to restore elasticity and firmness and cream for wrinkle and fine-line reduction. Finally, at night, high-potency retinols help stimulate cell turnover to combat signs of aging, such as discoloration or uneven tonedness in skin tone.
Visible signs of aging emerge when skin tissue begins to break down on a cellular level, resulting in dullness and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. This occurs due to slowing cell turnover rates, decreased hydration levels, and lower natural oil production that protects our cells.
The Aggressive Anti-Aging Program is an intensive treatment designed to accelerate the results of nonsurgical facelift procedures by increasing retinol concentrations in higher concentrations. Created by Dr. Zein Obagi to accelerate benefits from nonsurgical facelift procedures or other treatments, this regimen consists of six top-selling ZO skin health products designed to diminish deeper lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation (age spots), sagging skin, uneven tone, and sagginess. Each anti-aging product should be used every third night until your skin adjusts to this treatment regimen – remember to use broad-spectrum sunscreen daily while using this program!
Skin Care Routine
An effective skincare routine is an integral component of overall wellness. Achieve this through cleansing twice a day with an ideal cleanser explicitly tailored for your skin type to remove makeup, sweat, and pollutants from the surface of your skin and minimize oiliness while preventing breakouts.
Exfoliation is another essential step, helping to slough away dead skin cells and unveil fresher, more radiant skin. Regular exfoliation also enhances product penetration for corrective products like serums to work more effectively – consult a skin specialist for the appropriate exfoliant for your specific skin needs.
Toning is an integral component of healthy skin care, helping to balance its pH, minimize surface oils, and unclog pores. ZO offers several toners that work for all skin types: from the gentle calming toner for all-over comfort to complexion renewal pads with higher concentrations of salicylic acid for normal to dry complexions to acne control pads that feature higher salicylic acid concentrations for oily or acne-prone complexions.
Prevent and Correct is a broad category of solutions designed to address multiple concerns simultaneously, such as lines + wrinkles, sun damage, and discoloration. For instance, our 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating Serum helps firm and brighten skin, while Radical Night Repair Serum boosts collagen production while reversing signs of sun damage.
At the core of your daily skincare regimen lies protecting yourself. Everyday products such as phones, computers, and LED lighting emit UVA rays that penetrate skin layers. Protecting against UVA and UVB rays with sunscreen can help avoid sun damage and premature skin aging.
