Q For Your Skinformation. I used to break out on my face. Thankfully, that has stopped happening, but a year later my face still has all sorts of discolorations, and I won’t leave home without concealer and foundation. Do you think there is any hope for my skin to improve, or will I just have to hide under makeup forever? We meet many people just like you, who are thrilled when their acne goes away, only to discover that their complexion doesn’t look much better, due to persistent discolored spots. This can absolutely be treated. Our treatment program is customized for you and starts with advanced products to restore your skin’s health, and may include chemical peels and laser treatment. We recommend ZO Brightenex as a favorite for its cutting-edge technology to blend the skin color and stimulate collagen simultaneously. We want you to feel that wearing foundation is a choice, not a necessity. Q I’m 55 years old, but if you looked at my arms and hands you would think I was 105. I have so many age spots and the skin is very thin and crinkly. What can be done for this? The vulnerable skin on our arms and hands is exposed to the sun for much of our lives, resulting in the brown spots and aged texture that you are noticing. Our approach to improving the skin in this area includes the laser-type treatments IPL and Spectra ™ , sometimes chemical peels, and always in combination with cutting-edge products to repair sun damage and reverse aging changes. ZO Body Emulsion Plus is a remarkable hydrator combined with collagen stimulating properties.
