"I saw Jameson at ZO Skin center. I went in for Botox and fillers. he was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and clearly engaged with what treatment options I wanted. he took his time and listened carefully to my concerns and explained in depth what would work for what look I was trying to achieve. he also recommended a skin care treatment/regiment that would help with damaged skin, dryness and redness I have. after a week and half of following his precise instructions and recommended products from ZO skin care line I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing so far. Im looking forward to following up with jameson for all of my future skin care/Botox/fillers needs. well done Jameson and the staff at ZO for making me feel so welcomed and comfortable."- M.A. / Yelp / Sep 16, 2022
"Serene Obagi is a miracle worker! She has completely transformed my skin and facial asymmetry, which I have suffered from for years. She is kind, patient, hilarious and seriously amazing. Serene was able to restore balance and harmony to my face after some various filler mishaps and has left me looking clear, bright and feeling beautiful. I recommend her to every person I ever talk to! I go to the ZO clinic in Pasadena, and their staff is always welcoming and willing to accommodate my busy work schedule. I recommended Serene to my mom who goes to her in Newport and Laguna as well, Serene actually makes the effort to get to know her clients and hops around to all of the clinics to deliver the best possible services for whatever your concerns are, from acne to liquid facelifts to skin brightening. You also can’t beat Obagi’s ZO skincare which is the best medical grade skincare I have ever used. Thank you SO much Serene and ZO Pasadena!!! :)"- L.R. / Yelp / Jun 24, 2022
"Serene Obagi has been my nurse and skin guru for the past few months. I can also say she’s been my angel because she has transformed my skin and has made me feel and look my best! She makes sure to customize my skincare regimen and follows up every 4-6 weeks to check on my progress. She is caring, professional and so knowledgeable! Just look at my before and after picture (i had really bad hyperpigmentation and she was able to help me get rid of every single and dark spot!!) I always hated everything about my skin and was so embarrassed by it since a teenager :( thanks to Serene and the Zo products, i now have healthy, clear and vibrant skin- i have never received so many compliments on how good my skin looks- it’s amazing how these products work like magic. Just be patient and trust the process!! I go to the clinic in Pasadena and all the staff there are always so very friendly and welcoming!"- T.H. / Yelp / Jun 16, 2022
"I had the ZO Ultimate Regeneration Treatment with Claudia. She is amazing and very knowledgeable! She could tell I’m a side sleeper by looking at my skin knowledgeable. After my treatment, I had an e-consult with Mae. She created a skin care regimen for me to address the acne on my chin. Shelly helped me color code my regimen so it’s easier to follow. And, she also helped me find the best deals so I don’t have to break the bank. Overall amazing experience!!! I can’t wait to be back and start this skin care journey with them.(PS there’s parking in the back of the building)"- A.L. / Yelp / Sep 11, 2021
Speaking with an experienced and licensed skin health professional is the first step in the laser tattoo removal process. At ZO Skin Centre®, we will discreetly discuss your desire to remove your body art in one of our private consultation rooms. During this appointment, we will analyze your tattoo and skin to see if a laser treatment is the appropriate course of action in removing the pigment from your skin. We want you to be happy with the result, and want to provide you with the right information to have a realistic expectation of what the laser can and cannot remove.
What to Expect
Laser tattoo removal is not a one-step process. You may have several laser treatment sessions in order to fade the pigments in the skin. Your skin will also have to heal and repair itself between appointments. We will take you to one of our treatment rooms with the MedLite® Laser to accomplish the session. This laser has optimal wavelengths to absorb and remove the tattoo from your skin without damaging any of the healthy surrounding skin cells.
Your skin will be prepared with a cleanser and a topical numbing cream if requested. Many patients report the treatment feeling like a light snapping sensation on the skin. Once the laser has started working on the skin, the laser will maneuver its way back and forth on the surface of the pigmented artwork. The treatment time is based on the size of your tattoo. Once this is complete, we will apply a healing ointment on the area to keep it hydrated and then cover it with a protective bandage. You may have some swelling, crusting, intense itching, or a sensation that feels like a sunburn in the treatment area. We will discuss how to care for your skin with our aftercare instructions provided at the appointment.

We may also make other recommendations to assist the laser treatment in lightening the skin. Request a consultation for impeccable service and an appointment that fits your schedule.
