At a sun-related skin consultation, we will provide you with an intimate, one-on-one discussion about the health of your skin. The sun can damage your skin in many ways that will need a medical intervention for skin to properly regenerate again in a healthy manner. Our experienced medical aestheticians and dermatology team at ZO Skin Centre® will provide you with an in-depth analysis of your skin and then procure a skin care plan to meet your needs. From hyperpigmentation to textural issues to skin cancer screenings, we will take on the challenge of easing your dark spots, wrinkles, lines, and/or rough texture your sun-damaged skin may be presenting.
Everyone needs to be aware of their skin health and how to best protect it from sun damage (even if you have pristine skin). Sun damage can present itself in many ways and at ZO Skin Centre® Pasadena, CA, we can find any hidden damage.
Sun-damaged skin is more than the occasional sunburn. Over time, the sun will cause your skin to evolve. Wrinkles, pigmentation spots, loss of hydration, and skin diseases or disorders are all possibilities your skin could endure with repeated overexposure to the harmful rays of the sun.
When you have an overproduction of melanin in your facial skin, it can be very difficult to treat pigmentation conditions without professional medical help. We consult with patients with sun-damaged skin presenting as hyperpigmentation (freckles, sun spots, dark patches, blotchy skin, and more).
Would you like to have a skin analysis that includes an assessment for skin cancer? Sun damage can cause skin cancer, and we recommend that you have a regular checkup and screening every 6 – 12 months if you are at risk. Our consultations for skin cancer will assess abnormalities in your skin, check moles for size and color, and examine dark spots. We can also recommend products to help prevent skin cancer with our high SPF sunscreens, which needs to be worn daily (especially on the vulnerable areas: the face, neck, hands, and feet). If we suspect that you have the characteristics of skin cancer, it will be imperative to speak with a doctor or dermatologist about the findings.
Malignant melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer most often caused by sun overexposure, and if not treated, can spread rapidly. If you have melanoma or have been treated for this severe skin cancer, it is highly important that you wear a powerful UVA + UVB sun protectant on your skin. At the ZO Skin Centre®, we have a series of sunscreen formulations that may work well with your skin for prevention.
The sun can bring out a hyperpigmentation called melasma, which is a hormonal pigmentation condition. Melasma consultations will assess the severity of your condition, and we will strategize ways to reduce the appearance of melasma flare-ups. We also can recommend ZO® Skin Health products and services for treatment, such as the ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™ with or without a laser skin resurfacing. Melasma is a skin condition that has to be managed as there is no cure. Keep in mind that even with aggressive or consistent treatment, sometimes the pigmentation will return to the same spot on your skin. Superficial melasma responds well to creams and disappears, but deep melasma may require a combination of peels and procedures.
Sun-Related Skin Consultation Reviews
"It was a great experience with Zo skin, this is my first time to try E-consult during the COVID. I placed the products with clinic and request for shipping to my house. Looking forward to seeing the changes of my skin."- C.C. / Yelp / May 27, 2021
"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
"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
"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
"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
