IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ZO Skin Health, Inc., is pleased to announce the launch of the ZO® Physician Affiliate and Revenue Sharing Programs specifically tailored to support a thriving physician practice.
The ZO® Affiliate Program is an added benefit for select U.S. physicians who dispense the full range of ZO® Medical products in their practice. The program offers physicians their own virtual store on the ZO Skin Health, Inc. website (www.zoskinhealth.com) where their patients can replenish ZO® Medical (excluding Rx) and ZO® Skin Health products, after having a consultation and with their physician.
Physicians receive commission on products sold through their virtual store on the ZO Skin Health, Inc. website, as if their patients purchased the ZO® products directly from the physician's practice.
"Our goal is to help sustain a thriving physician-patient relationship that keeps the patient coming back to the practice continuously for ZO® products," says Jim Headley, CEO and president of ZO Skin Health, Inc. "We are taking a stand in support of our physicians and offering them a secure, state-of-the-art online store, while fighting third-party black market Internet sales of these products."
In order for patients to access their physician's store on the ZO Skin Health, Inc. website, patients must enter a physician referral code, provided to the patient by the physician after their initial purchase of products following a consultation.
For select U.S. physicians who dispense the full range of ZO® Medical and ZO® Skin Health products in their practice, ZO Skin Health, Inc. offers the new ZO® Revenue Sharing program where physicians share a portion of the revenue generated from ZO® retail website sales.
ZO® Medical products are exclusively available for purchase in the U.S. through select physician practices and the ZO® Physician Affiliate Program on the ZO Skin Health, Inc. website, as well as through select international distributors.

About Zein Obagi, M.D.
Researcher, innovator, scientist, published author, lecturer and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Zein Obagi has achieved international renown as a leading authority on skin rejuvenation. He is the ZO Skin Health, Inc. founder and medical director and is responsible for the development of new skincare treatments, protocols and products to achieve healthy skin.
Over twenty years ago, Dr. Zein Obagi pioneered the concept of skin health and conceived of, and brought to market, a line of medical skincare products – the original Obagi Nu-Derm® System – that transformed aging skin. Dr. Obagi founded WorldWide Products, which produced and marketed the original Obagi Nu-Derm® System. At that time, Dr. Obagi merely intended to challenge the norms of traditional skin care. Instead he shattered the status quo. Today his ideas about skin health are no longer surprising; they have become mainstream. Subsequently, WorldWide was purchased by Obagi Medical Products, Inc., a company with which Dr. Obagi no longer has any affiliation, but which retained his family name (Obagi®) as their trademark.
ZO Skin Health, Inc. and Dr. Obagi have no business relationship with Obagi Medical Products, and Obagi Medical Products does not sell or endorse using any ZO® product. "ZO" is a registered trademark of ZO Skin Health, Inc. "Obagi" and "Obagi Nu-Derm" are registered trademarks of Obagi Medical Products, Inc.
