Sun-Related Skin Consultation Overview
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.
"Anita Gardner NP is the Best! I come to see her for my Health Infusions. At ZO, beauty is not just about skin deep, my monthly visits at ZO for my Facials with Claudia and IV Theraphy with Anita help me look and feel better inside and out. Thank you to the ladies of ZO Skin Centre in Pasadena, I love the Power of Blue ... Anita Gardner, Claudia, Natalia, Shelly, and Angeli xoxo"- Y.S. / Yelp / May 26, 2018
"Love getting my facials here. I've tried the hydrafacial and brightening. Both were amazing! I was afraid of the extraction process but it was not too painful at all. Natalia is very gentle and knowledgeable. She explained everything throughout the entire process. Everyone here is super friendly and professional especially Shelly at the front desk. She is the BEST!"- J.F. / Yelp / Apr 30, 2018
"Great facial from Claudia. My skin is always glowing after. Maybe they should think anout adding a 2-3 hr special - I'd be in Heaven"- S.W. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2018
"Just need to be honest for sec, I seriously feel like i've tried almost all the skincare places/people in los angeles and cannot stand the fact that i've never known about ZO skin center until now. I, also, completely loathe the fact that i've wasted thousands of dollars on other estheticians who did not understand my skin and all the money i put into products and facials never brought the same results that these guys have AND I've only had three treatments here so far. Claudia handled all of my skin needs and after seeing her three times, I decided I am not going anywhere else. I've received lasers, peels, facials of all kinds, and nothing compared to the service i received from Claudia who truly cared for my skin and addressed all my concerns. The most important thing I want to say up font though is the fact that ***they are affordable*** and do not rip you off. you will 100% get your money's worth. I am not joking because I have been bamboozled by so many facial, skincare centers and due to my clear vulnerability and desire to perfect my skin, I have handed people money for nothing. A deep cleansing facial is UNDER $200 and a dermafrack treatment is ALSO under $200. They also don't shove products in your face and force you to purchase anything you don't want or need. Claudia gave me a free cleanser and only had me to use their cleansing pads ($35.) She also taught me the beauty of simplicity by using less products on my face. So, i'm not quite sure how/why everyone is saying they make you buy products... my experience here has only been peaceful, calm, and most importantly, simple. I used to go to RejuvaYou in pasadena for my Spectra Laser treatments, but after raising the price of each treatment to $300 this past January, I decided to search for another option. I found ZO Skin Center which immediately made me feel apprehensive, or rather, intimidated, by the name "Obaji" who we all know touts greatness in their products. I literally thought, "this place is going to empty my pockets for certain." Well, I was wrong. My skin has never looked better than any laser treatment I received and Claudia really understood what I needed. After just one visit, my skin was clear and smooth and I left paying half of what I'd pay for a Spectra Laser treatment at RejuvaYou. My second treatment was the dermafrack, which to be honest, is extremely painful and hard to undergo, but well worth it. Just running my hands across my cheeks in the shower has never felt so smooth. i highly recommend getting that done. I have also never received so many compliments about my skin and its new complexion. I 100% recommend ZO skin care and please ask for Claudia. She has literally been a life-saver for me."- F.O. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2018
"I booked a hydrafacial with Natalia and had a wonderful experience. Natalia is knowledgeable and patient -- explaining the entire process and products. My skin felt cleaned and bright. I would definitely recommend this facial to boost your skincare regime."- J.C. / Yelp / Feb 09, 2018
