IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Zein Obagi, world renowned dermatologist, and founder and Medical Director of ZO Skin Health, Inc., announces the global premier of the NEW ZO® Medical 3-Step Stimulation Peel at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Summer Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, August 17-18, 2012.

ZO Skin Health, Inc. experts will be available in Booth #506 at the AAD meeting to showcase the 3-Step Stimulation Peel, the newest product in the ZO® Medical line.

The 3-Step Stimulation Peel is a professional peel performed in a physician's office by a licensed medical professional. The product is designed to 1.) Exfoliate the outermost layers of skin 2.) Stimulate cellular function in deeper skin layers, and 3.) Calm and soothe skin to lessen irritation; all with minimal or no downtime.

The 3-Step Stimulation Peel can be repeated every three to four weeks, or as needed, to treat acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores and dullness. Usage studies show that post-treatment peeling is mild to moderate and any discomfort is mitigated by the ZO® Medical Calming Crème-Post Procedure Skin Relief, sent home with the patient.

"Dr. Obagi is well respected for developing effective, results-proven epidermal and dermal peels. The 3-Step Stimulation Peel is a further expansion of his new thinking and will become an important part of a physician's armamentarium," says Jim Headley, President and CEO of ZO Skin Health, Inc.

The 3-Step Stimulation Peel corresponds with Dr. Obagi's new skincare philosophy emphasizing skin health. "Physicians and skincare professionals should focus on making skin continuously healthy rather than transiently treating symptoms of poor skin health. We can stabilize the skin without resorting to surgical procedures with the right skincare protocols," Dr. Obagi said.

Dr. Obagi's ZO® Skin Health Circle™ includes Therapeutic Options, Maintenance, Daily Skin Care and Protection. "Our ultimate goal is to stabilize the skin and the 3-Step Stimulation Peel leaves patients with a more vibrant-looking complexion while improving overall skin health." says Dr. Obagi

The 3-Step Stimulation Peel is suitable for any skin type or color. Dr. Obagi recommends pre-conditioning skin with ZO® Medical or ZO® Skin Health products prior to the application of the peel to improve skin health as well as accelerate post peel healing.

About Zein Obagi, M.D.
Researcher, innovator, scientist, published author, lecturer and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Zein Obagi has achieved international renown as a leading authority on skin rejuvenation. 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.

ZO Skin Health, Inc. and Dr. Obagi have no business relationship with Obagi Medical Products, and Obagi Medical Products does not sell or endorse using any ZO® product.  "ZO" is a registered trademark of ZO Skin Health, Inc.  "Obagi" and "Obagi Nu-Derm" are registered trademarks of Obagi Medical Products, Inc.
