I carry Obagi's new like ZO Skin Health because it has newer less harsh ingredients with the same results.

The ZO Skin Health Circle advances Dr. Obagi’s philosophy to:
PREPARE the skin for THERAPEUTIC management and REJUVENATION,
MAINTANENCE of results,
Continued REPAIR of cell membrane and DNA damage,
DEFENSE and PREVENTION internal and environmental aging.
Without proper preparation of the skin and compliance to the program, the skin cells producing oils and pigmentation will not be properly regulated and you may respond by becoming oilier, more inflamed and more pigmented. ZO Skin Health provides for these problems using retinols, non-hydroquinones melanin blockers and anti-oxidants.
Glycolic acid peels perform only superficially and its effects plateau quickly. You may be ready for a deeper peel.
Please consider a ZO expert by linking to ZOSkinHealth.com in order to evaluate and manage these problems. I wish you the best!
