Intensive program therapy to improve skin quality in a short period of time

Zeo Skin Health is a cosmetic product created by Dr. Zein Obagi, who has been highly acclaimed worldwide in the field of skin care, based on more than 35 years of research, and is particular about the results. It is a skin care series that allows you to flexibly customize the program.

Zeoskin Health's Therapeutic Program is an intensive program that improves skin quality in a short period of time, and while it is highly effective, it causes reactions that do not occur with general cosmetics, so a doctor's diagnosis with a good understanding of Zeoskin Health Under these circumstances, it is necessary to control how to use it in a way that suits each individual.

Those who are suitable for therapeutic programs

  • I'm worried about stains and dullness
  • I'm worried about the stiffness and roughness of my skin
  • I'm worried about the opening of pores
  • I feel tension and lack of elasticity
  • I'm worried about fine wrinkles
  • I'm worried about acne and acne scars

First of all, it is important to know the skin condition correctly by diagnosis by a doctor

For example, if you want to improve stains, there are various types of stains. Senile pigment spots (sunlight pigment spots) that tend to appear with aging, liver spots that are thought to be related to female hormones, and ADM (acquired dermatitis) that is thought to be a type of bruise rather than a stain. Melanocytosis) and so on.

It is difficult to distinguish what was thought to be so-called ordinary spots (senile pigment spots), such as bruises and chloasma, and there are many cases in which they are mixed. If you do not treat each symptom correctly, you will not be satisfied with the results.

First of all, it is most important to diagnose whether the therapeutic program is suitable for a doctor who has a lot of knowledge and experience in treating stains and improving skin quality, and then select an appropriate treatment method.

Ingredients used in therapeutics 1: Effects and side effects of tretinoin

The Therapeutic Program uses items that contain tretinoin (a prescription drug) that promotes skin reincarnation and hydroquinone, a whitening ingredient.

The effect of tretinoin on promoting skin reincarnation

  • Improvement of stains
  • Wrinkle improvement
  • Improvement of acne and acne scars
  • Improvement of pore opening and darkening
  • Improves the stiffness and roughness of the skin and smoothes the texture

Tretinoin that improves stains by skin regeneration effect

Tretinoin physiological activity is a derivative of vitamin A (retinol) is said to be about 50 times to 100 times that of vitamin A, as a therapeutic pharmaceutical acne blemishes, wrinkles, been approved in the United States FDA (Japanese Ministry of Health institutions corresponding to the Department of Labor) I have.

Since tretinoin is originally a very small amount flowing in the blood, it does not cause allergies.

Tretinoin promotes turnover, which is the reincarnation of the skin, and can be expected to have the effect of thinning the stains by discharging the melanin pigment that is the source of the stains.

Activates skin reincarnation turnover

The skin is roughly divided into a two-layer structure of "epidermis" and "dermis" from the top. The cells of the epidermis are born in the deepest basal layer of the epidermis, gradually pushed up to the surface while changing their shape, eventually becoming horny, and finally becoming dirt and peeling off from the skin.

This is called "turnover", and the epidermis is usually reborn in a cycle of about 28 days, but with aging, metabolism declines and the turnover cycle becomes longer, and it takes about 45 days on average for people in their 30s and 40s. It is said that.

When exposed to UV light, melanocytes (melanocytes) in the basal layer of the epidermis produce melanin pigments.

Hydroquinone works to reduce the production of melanin pigments by melanocytes, but it does not eliminate the melanin pigments deposited on the skin.

Tretinoin divides and proliferates epidermal cells and promotes skin regeneration (activates turnover), thereby discharging the melanin pigment in the basal layer to the outside .

The cells of the epidermis are pushed up to the surface layer of the skin together with the melanin pigment by tretinoin , and the melanin pigment is excreted to the outside in about 2 weeks.

Expected to improve wrinkles due to collagen production

Tretinoin increases the secretion of collagen and elastin, which are the sources of elasticity and elasticity in the dermis, so it can be expected to have the effect of improving fine wrinkles by creating elasticity and elasticity in the skin.

In addition, by proliferating the keratinized cells of the epidermis and thickening the epidermis, it increases the secretion of mucous substances such as hyaluronic acid in the epidermis, so it can be expected to have the effect of moisturizing and firming the skin.

It reduces the function of the sebaceous glands and removes dead skin cells, leading to improvement of acne and acne scars.

The cause of acne is increased secretion of sebaceous glands, thickening of the keratin of the pores, and blockage of the exit of the pores. Tretinoin reduces the function of the sebaceous glands, suppresses the secretion of sebum, and at the same time makes it easier to peel off the keratin that blocks the exit of the pores, so it can be expected to improve acne.

Tretinoin is also effective in improving the redness of acne scars. The redness of acne scars is due to the acne causing inflammation under the epidermis.

Since tretinoin promotes skin turnover, it can be expected to have the effect of smoothing the texture and making acne scars less noticeable.

Improvement of pore opening and darkening

Tretinoin promotes skin turnover and makes it easier for old keratin to come off, so it can be expected to have the effect of removing pore clogging, which is the cause of darkening of pores.

In addition, by suppressing the function of the sebaceous glands and suppressing the secretion of sebum, the effect of reducing the clogging of pores due to sebum can be expected.

Tretinoin is said to have the effect of increasing the production of collagen and elastin. This brings firmness to the skin and improves the opening of pores such as sagging pores .

Side effects of tretinoin

As a side effect of tretinoin, a symptom called retinoid dermatitis (A reaction) is frequently seen.

  • Redness
  • Erythema
  • Peel
  • itch

It is especially likely to occur within about 6 weeks after starting use, and if it is mild, it will progress. There are individual differences in how people respond, and if the response is strong, we will take measures such as reducing the frequency of use from daily to once a week.

Precautions for using tretinoin

Tretinoin and high-concentration retinol cannot be used by those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy .

About resistance to tretinoin

If you continue to use tretinoin externally, the dermatitis with erythema will gradually disappear. Once tretinoin becomes resistant, it does not change no matter how much the concentration of topical agent is increased.

If you continue to use tretinoin for a long period of time, stop using tretinoin, stop the drug, and then resume it to reduce tolerance, and you can expect a high pharmacological effect again. It is recommended to take a break from use for 4 to 5 months after using for 4 to 5 months.

Ingredients used in therapeutics 2: Effects and side effects of hydroquinone

Hydroquinone with a powerful whitening effect

Hydroquinone is a substance that also exists in food and nature, but it has been confirmed that it has a whitening effect on stains and dullness.

A whitening effect can be expected with the following two actions.

  1. Prevent new stains
  2. Thin the stains that have already been made

Prevent new stains

The main function of hydroquinone is to suppress the production of melanin pigment, which is the cause of stains, and to reduce the melanocytes themselves, which are the cells that make melanin pigment .

Spot mechanism

The cause of "stains" caused by UV rays is the fixation of excess melanin pigment.

When the skin is exposed to UV rays, melanocytes are activated and produce melanin pigment. Melanin pigment is formed by changing the amino acid tyrosine that exists in the skin by the action of tyrosinase (enzyme).

Normally, the skin is constantly turning over, and the melanin pigment that is formed is also excreted in 1 to 2 months, but when the melanin pigment is fixed due to the accumulation of damage, it becomes a stain.

Hydroquinone suppresses the activation of melanocytes and at the same time inhibits the action of tyrosinase to suppress the production of melanin pigment .

Thin the stains that have already been made

Hydroquinone has a reducing effect that lightens the melanin pigment.

Hydroquinone can be expected to be more effective than other whitening ingredients by suppressing the generation of melanin pigments and thinning existing stains, but there are also types called stains, and all stains. Does not work on.

Hydroquinone effective stains
  • Senile pigment spots (sunlight pigment spots)
  • Inflammatory pigmentation (scratches, burns, insect bites, acne scar pigmentation)
  • Chloasma
  • freckles
What is ineffective with hydroquinone
  • mole
  • Bruise
  • ADM (Acquired Dermal Melanocytosis)

Deep stains (a type of bruise) in the dermis layer such as ADM (acquired dermis cytosis) are difficult to improve with Zeoskin Health, so first care for the skin surface (epidermis layer) with Zeoskin Health and then laser treatment. Improvement can be expected by receiving.

In addition, it is said that care with Zeoskin Health before laser treatment has the effect of reducing the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is a side effect of laser treatment.

Side effects of hydroquinone

Hydroquinone is a powerful whitening ingredient, also called a "skin bleaching agent", but the higher the concentration, the stronger the irritation, and the following symptoms may occur.

  • Redness
  • Rash
  • itch
  • Tingling sensation
  • Deterioration of scratches and artifacts
  • Vulnerable to UV damage (UV care required)
  • Risk of vitiligo due to long-term use (after using for 4 to 5 months, rest for 4 to 5 months)

Precautions for hydroquinone

While using hydroquinone, it is easily damaged by UV rays, and the stains may become darker, so it is necessary to take sufficient measures against UV rays.

Therapeutic course / time required for treatment and downtime

The duration of the therapeutic program and the three processes

The Therapeutic Program takes 12 to 18 weeks and leads to beautiful and healthy skin through three processes: reaction period, endurance period, and completion period.

Peeling occurs mainly during the reaction period, which is the first 4 to 6 weeks after starting use.

Reaction phase (4 to 6 weeks)

In the therapeutic program, the reaction period comes from about 3 days to 1 week after the start of use. At this time, old keratin is extruded and begins to be reborn, so the skin peels off and the old keratin pops out.

The feeling of tingling and redness begins to appear, so it is a time when I feel that I am using Zeoskin. At some point of so-called downtime, we will do our best.

Typical reactions (side effects / downtime)
  • Exfoliation of old dead skin
  • Redness
  • Dry
  • Tingling sensation
  • itch
  • Wrinkles stand out
  • Acne worsens
  • Skin hypersensitivity

Endurance period (4 to 6 weeks)

By continuing the program, the skin becomes tolerant and resistant by this process, and reactions such as redness and peeling gradually subside . It is expected that the skin will become firm during this period, and fine wrinkles and pores will not be noticeable.

Completion period (4 to 6 weeks)

It is expected that the trouble will be improved by entering the final stage and the skin will be reborn into new cells, and the skin will become beautiful and healthy with transparency, texture, moisture, firmness and luster. We will take steps to maintain healthy skin.

What to do if you have a plan and want to avoid peeling

If you have an important schedule and want to avoid peeling, temporarily stop using it. It is said that downtime symptoms such as redness and peeling can be suppressed by discontinuing use from 1 week to 10 days before the scheduled date.

However, it is advisable to discontinue only products containing tretinoin, high-concentration retinol, and hydroquinone , and continue with other items.

Post-therapeutic skin care-transition / maintenance period

After being reborn as therapeutic and beautiful skin, the transition period to the maintenance period to maintain beautiful skin is important .

Tretinoin cannot be given for a long time because it makes the skin resistant. However, if you stop tretinoin and retinol (vitamin A) all at once, the A reaction will be strong when you restart .

In addition, it is said that photoaging progresses and stains are more likely to return, so we will reduce the number of uses and taper during the transition period .

Specifically, reduce the frequency of applying tretinoin about twice a week. For the remaining 5 days, use daily PD or RC cream, which is a beauty essence containing low-concentration retinol, instead of Miramix mixed with tretinoin.

The standard transition period to the maintenance period is one and a half to two months.

Precautions for therapeutic

UV protection is essential

Ultraviolet rays cause skin aging such as wrinkles and sagging as well as stains, but since the skin is sensitive during therapeutic, it is essential to take measures against ultraviolet rays.

When it is very dry

During the reaction period when you have just started therapistics, you may be worried about dryness and itchiness, but it is said that you need to endure to some extent without relying on your own cosmetics. If you are concerned about dryness, the moisturizing RC cream is recommended among Zeoskin Health products.

How to choose a medical institution to avoid failure in therapy

Among Zeoskin Health, the Therapeutic Program uses items that contain stimulating ingredients instead of being expected to be effective, and also includes a doctor's prescription drug called tretinoin, so it is also possible to consult and guide a reliable doctor. It is important to do it.

If you continue to use it at your own discretion, there is a risk that the symptoms will worsen. Based on the diagnosis of a doctor who has a good understanding of Zeoskin Health products and their ingredients, if the reaction is too strong, it is safe to choose a doctor who will teach you how to use it, such as reducing the concentration and frequency.

Recently, the number of medical institutions that can use online medical care for Zeoskin health products is increasing, but if you have any symptoms that you are worried about, whether you can respond immediately, whether it is easy to consult, and re-examination Whether or not it is easy to receive is also an important point.

In addition, not only Zeoskin health but also basic things, it is important to continue skin care even after the treatment is over. Even if the stains improve, you can trust them if you are a doctor who carefully gives correct skin care guidance to prevent recurrence and maintain beautiful skin.
