"I want you to know that Dr. Lapuerta and hist patient coordinator, Brandi and his entire staff are phenomenal. He did a full tummy tuck, implant replacement during a hysterectomy. The surgery was long. He gave me his cell and he couldn't have been more caring. His bed side manners make you feel so..."- M.G. / Healthgrades / Nov 16, 2016
"I want you to know that Dr. Lapuerta and hist patient coordinator, Brandi and his entire staff are phenomenal. I was recommended to them by my Obgyn, Dr. Baden ( also amazing) to see him after discussing needing a hysterectomy and wanting to do a tummy tuck as well if I was going to do that. And My Obgyn highly recommend Dr. Lapuerta to do the surgery with him and do it all together. I was very nervous of course. But, I went and met with Lapuerta and Brandi and was INSTANTLY comfortable and felt they were the perfect fit for me. My Case was long. It was 7.5 h our surgery. I would say I am in pretty good shape, just had 5 babies in 5 years that did a number on my body. The surgery and recovery ( i am 4 weeks out) was in NO WAY easy. But, Dr. Lapuerta took wonderful care of me. I had his cell number and he answered as soon as I would call. He also replaced my 15 year old implants along with the full tummy tuck and I am THRILLED! I would not use anyone else but Dr. Lapuerta for future surgeries. His bed side manner is kind, warm and you NEVER feel rushed. Brandi is just as fabulous and again, never feeling rushed or like your asking stupid questions. And with as much surgery I was having , I ask a ton of questions. I have no doubt if you use him for surgery you will be so happy. You, will love his patience and kindness. He truly cares about you and your over all health and well being. I want to thank him and Brandi for making my experience as easy as it could be. AMAZING! I still have a ton of swelling and healing, however, I am already in love with the way i look! Dr. Lapuerta did EXACTLY what he said he would do. He made me look a million times better. I want to thank Dr. Lapuerta for making me a new women with confidence again. And Thank you Brandi for your kindness throughout the whole process."- H.H. / Facebook / Nov 16, 2016

ZO Skin Health Circle™@headingTag>
In order to create an effective skincare line, Dr. Obagi focused on four areas to create the ZO Skin Health Circle philosophy. The products and programs start with therapeutic treatments to correct medical conditions, then patients can continue to return for maintenance treatments until their condition is corrected. Once patients have achieved healthy skin through treatments, their skincare professional will help them choose the proper products for their daily skincare routine. This will include products that keep the skin healthy and prevent further damage.
ZO Medical Products includes treatments that can be performed by a ZO authorized physician and products that the patient can use at home to continue their care until their next treatment. ZO Medical Products are put into several categories: Getting Skin Ready, Color Control & Correction, Exfoliation, Post Procedure, Deep Renewal & Stimulation, Hydration & Calming, Sun Protections, and ZO Signature Peels.

Most people expect to be shocked at the price of professional skincare products, and depending on what you’re currently using, you may be. However, there are many reasons to invest in high-quality medical skincare products:
- Products are chosen by a skincare professional for your individual needs
- A higher concentration of active ingredients than cannot be found in over-the-counter products
- Less product is used during each application so the product lasts longer than cheaper products.
- Skin Health products and treatments are created by renowned dermatologist, Dr. Zein Obagi

ZO Vs. Over-the-counter?@headingTag>
ZO skincare can only be purchased at a physician or skin health professional’s office that is authorized by ZO to sell their products. Unlike over-the-counter products that can be purchased at a drug store or specialty beauty store, ZO products are scientifically advanced products that should only be used with professional guidance.
While ZO Skin Health products and treatments can be more expensive than more familiar brands, patients shouldn’t worry about spending a small fortune. The ZO Skin Health products for daily care range from $39 for the Offects® Exfoliating Cleanser to $295 for the 6-piece Aggressive Anti-Aging Program. ZO Medical products start at $45 for the AKNEBRIGHT™ Spot & Pigment Treatment and go as high as $260 for the 5-piece Non-Hydroquinone Hyperpigmentation System.
While all products and treatments from the ZO Skincare line should be recommended by a skincare or medical professional, certain ZO products are only available with a physician prescription. These products, MELAMIN™, MELAMIX™, and Tretinoin, include ingredients that must be used cautiously.
