Zein Obagi, M.D., Announces The 24th Ultimate Skin Health Symposium In Beverly Hills

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ZO Skin Health, Inc. is pleased to announce that Zein E. Obagi, M.D. is the Director of the 24th Ultimate Skin Health Symposium (www.ultimateskinsymposium.com). This three-day breakthrough skin rejuvenation program will take place at the Montage Hotel, Beverly Hills, California from November 9-11, 2012.

Designed to educate dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons and skin care professionals worldwide, under Dr. Obagi's direction the symposium will be focused on skin health and the application of this science in dermatological and cosmetic surgery practice. The Ultimate Skin Health Symposium will cover the science of how to restore skin health, cellular activity and function while showing attendees how to improve the skin's ability to tolerate procedures and surgery. Attendees will also learn how to address a variety of skin conditions, including hyperpigmentation and melasma, rosacea, PIH, acne, scars and wrinkles.

In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to join a think-tank group consisting of the top experts in dermatology to determine proper protocol for their most complex cases. The symposium will include two live patient sessions (including a live patient injection workshop) where participants can interact closely with leading physicians on their innovative injection and skin rejuvenation techniques.

Featured topics:

  • New topical agents and delivery systems
  • How to determine optimal treatment for all skin types, including ethnic skin
  • Skin essentials, including physiology and topical treatments
  • Novel peel protocols to treat anti-aging, acne, photo damage
  • Laser and light based devices for face and off-face applications
  • Pearls for using dermal fillers and neurotoxins
  • Advancements in skin resurfacing technologies
  • Anti-aging and hormone balance for the skin

"We've all attended events that cover invasive and non-invasive procedures as well as fillers and lasers. But what we forget is that the fundamental organ of the skin is often inadequately addressed," says Dr. Obagi. "What we need to do is focus on the skin itself and how to improve its quality and vitality and use it as a tool to determine suitability of aesthetic procedures and how to cater these procedures to skin type and specific skin concerns."

Dr. Obagi is joined by a world-class multidisciplinary faculty including:

  • Dr. Andre Berger
  • Dr. Vivian Bucay
  • Dr. Jarl Bunaes
  • Dr. Barry DiBernardo
  • Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald
  • Wendy Lewis
  • Dr. Z. Paul Lorenc
  • Dr. Stephan Marks
  • Dr. Frank Muggenthaller
  • Dr. E. Victor Ross
  • Dr. Patrick Trevidic
  • Dr. Steven Wang
  • Dr. Susan Weinkle

"The symposium will dive deep into my new approach to skin care that only comes with 30 years of experience as a dermatologist. I plan to raise the bar on the Science of Skin Health and reveal the most effective methods in the treatment of skin that can easily be implemented into any practice," says Dr. Obagi.

The Ultimate Skin Health Symposium has attracted some of the top aesthetic and medical companies in the world as featured exhibitors. They include:
