IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- World-renowned dermatologist, Zein Obagi, MD, founder and medical director of ZO® Skin Health, Inc. will be a featured presenter at the first-ever BeWell, Beauty & Wellness Expo on September 29 in Los Angeles.
BeWell, Beauty & Wellness Expo has been hailed the most innovative beauty and wellness mecca. It is a premiere two-day event where beauty and wellness experts divulge insider secrets, attracting beauty and wellness leaders, drawing 40,000 attendees. The Expo, open to both professionals and consumers, is a forum where attendees discover products usually available only to industry insiders; interact with professionals and receive treatments from new cosmetic and wellness brands focused on helping consumer's look and feel young at every age.
BeWell features interactive demonstrations, lectures and workshops that represent the latest breakthroughs and cutting edge technology in health, natural healing and skin care. Dr. Zein Obagi, known as a leader in the skin care and anti-aging industry, has been asked to present at the event. His presentation, "Skin Care for Life," will concentrate on basic skin care products and techniques that should be used daily to keep skin functioning optimally while strengthening the skin's ability to prevent aging, discoloration, sensitivity, dryness and sun damage. Dr. Zein Obagi will address preventative steps to enhance and maintain skin health with a regimen suitable for all skin types, ages and genders.
"Skin care should be created to improve skin tone, vitality, strength and hydration, but many mainstream skin care products don't do this," says Dr. Obagi – founder and medical director of ZO Skin Health, Inc. "I'm pleased to share a meaningful skin care regimen that is not only simple to use, but is clinically proven to increase the skin's ability to repair itself. This in turn effectively enhances youthfulness," states Dr. Obagi.
Sharing his medical insights and techniques is not new for Dr. Obagi. Twenty-five years ago Dr. Obagi pioneered the concept of skin health and conceived of and brought to market the original Obagi Nu-Derm® system and in 1997 sold the company to Obagi Medical Products. While Obagi Medical Products kept the trademark "Obagi", he resigned as an officer and director in 2006 and is no longer affiliated with that company. In 2007 he founded ZO Skin Health, Inc. where he developed and brought to market his new thinking on stabilizing skin, including advancements in skin care technology.
Key to Dr. Zein Obagi's skincare philosophy is the concept of skin health. "Physicians and skincare professionals should focus on making skin healthy rather than merely alleviating symptoms of poor skin health such as pigmentation, fine lines, acne, rosacea, wrinkles and even sagging. We can address these skincare concerns for our patients without resorting to medical procedures with the right skincare regimen," Dr. Obagi said.
ZO Skin Health, Inc. will be located at BOOTH #300, where company leaders will be on hand to talk about ground breaking products and industry leading services. They will showcase solutions from ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical, by Zein Obagi, MD.

He is the ZO Skin Health, Inc. founder and medical director and is responsible for the development of new skincare treatments, protocols and products to achieve healthy skin.
Twenty years ago, Dr. Zein Obagi pioneered the concept of skin health and conceived of, and brought to market, a line of medical skincare products – the original Obagi Nu-Derm® System – that transformed aging skin. Dr. Obagi founded WorldWide Products, which produced and marketed the original Obagi Nu-Derm® System. At that time, Dr. Obagi merely intended to challenge the norms of traditional skin care. Instead he shattered the status quo. Today his ideas about skin health are no longer surprising; they have become mainstream. Subsequently WorldWide was purchased by Obagi Medical Products, Inc., a company with which Dr. Obagi no longer has any affiliation, but which retained his family name (Obagi®) as their trademark.
