St. Petersburg, FL, December 09, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Dr. Zein Obagi, Founder of ZO® Skin Health, ZO® Medical Products and ZO Skin Centre®, has announced the opening of the newest ZO Skin Centre® in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida at 240 1st Ave S, St. Petersburg. ZO® Skin Centres offer a wide range of services, including cosmetic dermatology, comprehensive skin evaluations, aesthetic facial services and a wide range of cosmetic procedures including injectables, lasers and chemical peels. Dr. Obagi is proud to recognize Christian Drehsen, M.D., a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, as his partner and the newest ZO Skin Centre® owner.

Dr. Drehsen was born in Belgium and received his medical degree at the Free University of Brussels. After moving to the United States he trained at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, with a focus in all fields of plastic surgery. For more than 25 years, Dr. Drehsen has dedicated his life to perfecting the art and science of cosmetic surgery. His innovative style and constant push for exquisite results for his patients, led to his development of the Refresher LiftSM. This breakthrough procedure overcomes the limitations of the standard facelift by sculpting a natural facial appearance unattainable in more traditional procedures. His artistry and technical skill have been awarded by top media organizations including NewBeauty Magazine. He is a recipient of the Florida Medical Association’s Distinguished Physician Award, and has been honored several times as the top surgeon in plastic surgery by the Consumer Research Council of America.

Dr. Zein Obagi is globally recognized for his work in dermatology as an innovator, visionary, key opinion leader and author. He pioneered the concept of “skin health” and began to change the paradigms of skincare in the 1980’s. Dr. Obagi’s ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical product portfolios are well on their way to exceeding all of his past accomplishments. ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical products are only sold through authorized medical professionals and in ZO Skin Centre® locations.

Now, Dr. Obagi is making his elite products, services and procedures available through the opening of ZO Skin Centre® locations across the globe. After establishing five ZO Skin Centre® locations in California, and internationally in Cairo and Dubai, he and Dr. Drehsen are proud to announce the December opening of the first independently owned location in Florida, ZO Skin Centre® Downtown St Petersburg.

About ZO Skin Centre®

ZO Skin Centre® provides a unique environment that delivers state-of-the-art skin health care, treatments and rejuvenation based on Dr. Zein Obagi’s skin health philosophy.

A patient’s relationship with their medical team at ZO Skin Centre® begins with a 45-minute skin health evaluation. In these evaluations, skin on the face, neck, scalp, ears, décolleté, back and hands is gauged, and a personalized skincare program is developed to address acne, melasma, sun damage, skin laxity, volume loss, wrinkles or related concerns. Follow-up assessments are planned to determine the progress of skin-care programs.

The evaluations and subsequent skin-care programs are intended to avert skin ailments before they occur. Dr. Obagi and his trained physicians emphasize prevention. They focus on preventing sun damage, aging, pigmentation and acne by prescribing skin formulations that will help the skin work properly. Centre locations offer a range of injectables, facials, peels and other cosmetic procedures but also go beyond a typical medical spa. At ZO Skin Centre® the goal is to interact with ZO Skin Centre® patients throughout their lives, creating programs designed to address the skin health problems that are common at any age. Dr. Obagi’s Skin Health philosophy offers a wider application of science that focuses on what is best for each individual.
