They are so helpful with skin care advice and products- whether it is the ZO product line or just generally the entire office is helpful and always prompt. Dr lapuerta is personable, knowledgeable and always on time.

What is ZO® Skin Health?

The ZO Skin Health line was created by international healthcare expert Dr. Obagi. This line starts with ZO Health Circle, a philosophy for holistic skincare. Within this treatment approach, patients work with their doctor on an appropriate medical therapeutic treatment for existing medical conditions from ZO Medical. Then, patients receive recommendations to maintain daily skincare and prevent further damage with ZO Skin Health products. Together, the ZO skincare approach has been shown to treat acne, aging, hyperpigmentation, inflammation, rosacea, and sun damage — and improve skin over time.

Dr. Zein Obagi

The ZO Skincare line was developed by Dr. Zein Obagi, a board-certified dermatologist and skincare expert. ZO skin products are his opus after over 30 years of tireless research and experience in the field. His work revolutionized the way the world thinks about skincare with its holistic approach that focuses on skin health and whole-body health. Patients love the ZO Skincare approach because it improves appearance, treats chronic skincare issues, and contributes to overall health. Since its introduction, the ZO Skin Health line has featured on CBS’s The Doctors, as well as magazines like InStyle and New Beauty.

ZO® Authorized Physicians

ZO skin products are not sold over the counter — physicians and healthcare providers must be authorized to administer this product. Dr. Leo Lapuerta has been fully authorized to sell and perform ZO skin products in Houston and surrounds.

ZO® Skin Products, Treatments & Regimens

There are several ZO skin products in Houston for our patients to try.

ZO® Skin Health Circle™

The ZO Skin Health Circle is a skincare philosophy that delivers amazing skin and healthcare benefits by focusing on four key areas:

  1. Therapeutic treatments – First, it’s important to correct any existing medical skin conditions like rosacea, acne, dry skin, and more.
  2. Maintenance treatments Then, a maintenance program is designed and created for ongoing medical condition treatment (or to prevent its return). 
  3. Daily skincare – Once patients see full results from medical treatment, their ZO authorized dermatologist or clinician will help them choose the proper products for their daily skincare routine at home
  4. Damage prevention – Additional products may be recommended over time as needed to keep the skin healthy and prevent further damage due to aging or environmental triggers like dirt, UV rays, and pollution.

ZO® Medical

ZO skin products treat both medical and aesthetic conditions. ZO Medical focuses specifically on the former. These treatments are performed by an authorized physician and include aftercare products that the patient can use at home between clinical appointments. ZO Medical has proven to be remarkable in its ability to treat and reverse an impressive amount of dermal conditions. 

The ZO Medical line currently includes the following treatments:

  • Getting Skin Ready
  • Color Control & Correction
  • Exfoliation
  • Post Procedure
  • Deep Renewal & Stimulation
  • Hydration & Calming

ZO® Skin Care Products

Patients hoping to maintain their repaired and improved skin following their primary ZO treatment are in luck. Dr. Obagi designed his line of daily ZO Skin Health products to help patients maintain their healthy skin after their treatment program.

  • All Skin Types

What’s The Difference Between ZO® Skin Products & Over-The-Counter Products?
ZO skincare can only be purchased at an authorized physician or skin health professional’s office. 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.
