ZO® SKIN HEALTH Overnight Recovery Crème
Dr. Zein Obagi’s Night Repair Cream provides an anti-aging formula that works. Retinol helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles while ceramides support hydration and smoother skin surface.
While you sleep, your skin becomes more active, repairing and regenerating skin cells. So, this is the most important time to help skin repair, strengthen and nourish itself with Ommerse® Overnight Recovery Crème. This is the natural counterpoint to an active day–a little bit of skin therapy to calm and nourish the skin. It’s not sheer indulgence, though. Overnight, retinol benefits to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production; ceramides support moisture retention to restore dehydrated skin, skin structure and texture; and calming agents protect against inflammation.

REVIEWS FROM ZO SKIN HEALTH PRODUCTS USERS
- I LOVE this product. I cannot use it more than about twice a week because it makes my skin peel quite a bit since I have only been using it for about a month. I hope to work up to at least 3-5 days a week.
- You MUST use a sunscreen when using this because you are more sensitive to the sun.
- I could see a difference in a week but boy you really peel for the first few weeks. Love it !
- My doctor told me I can use it twice a day for 5 days to do a retinol peel in prep for my wedding. It was intense of course, but my skin looks amazing
Radical Night Repair
This is the strongest of the 1% Retinol standalone skin cremes that powerfully exfoliates the dead layers of the skin to improve skin textures, fine lines and pigmentation. This skin product goes on like silk but packs a powerful punch when used a few days in a row. This is one product that needs gradual adjustment to its powerful strength.

ZO® SKIN HEALTH SKIN BRIGHTENER 0.5% RETINOL
This High potency retinol is loved by everyone here at our clinic. Rather than jumping straight in and using 1% Retinol, Dr. Mark would advise that you begin with the ZO® SKIN HEALTH 0.5% Retinol Skin Brightener Serum. Use 1-2 pumps evenly on face (avoid your eyes). Start slowly and build up use gradually. To start- apply twice a week at night and increase frequency to alternative nights and then every night as tolerated.
On the nights in between retinol applications, you can use ZO® SKIN HEALTH Recovery Crème to calm, sooth and hydrate your skin. This cream contains low dose Retinol which will help to maintain your treatment.
Dryness, irritation and peeling usually develops 3 – 7 days following the first application. This dryness and irritation will diminish as your skin becomes more tolerant of the retinol. By week 6 your beautiful new healthy skin will start to reveal itself underneath all that peeling. By week 12 you will love the results.
