About Dr. Zein Obagi

Dr. Zein Obagi

Dr. Zein Obagi literally defined and authored the science of Skin Health. As a leading authority in cosmetic dermatology, he created Skin Health Restoration and Skin Conditioning, the standards by which skin conditions can be successfully treated regardless of skin color or age. His name has become synonymous with results-oriented skin treatments around the world.


A highly experienced clinician, educator and innovator, Dr. Zein Obagi is continually advancing the protocols and treatments for skin health in cosmetic dermatology. His practice utilizes today’s most innovative and effective clinical solutions to create and maintain healthy skin for everyone.

Comprehensive and Continuous Solutions

Three decades ago, when dermatology was concerned with treating just a single aspect of diseased skin, Dr. Zein Obagi pioneered the then-revolutionary concept of improving and maintaining overall skin health.

Today, through ZO Skin Health, Inc., Dr. Zein Obagi has developed a complete full circle approach that encompasses comprehensive solutions designed to work hand-in-hand – ZO® Medical, therapeutic products for physician-guided treatment, and ZO® Skin Health, products for daily and preventative care.

Dr. Zein Obagi’s goal is to educate consumers on the proper use of products in order to benefit the skin, and offer ethical advice on the best course of treatment.
