(Charlotte, NC) – Noted Charlotte cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Graper announces the addition of ZO® MEDICAL to his extensive line of medical grade skin care products offered at his fully accredited cosmetic surgery practice located in the SouthPark area. ZO® MEDICAL is the latest technology by Zein Obagi, M.D. The line consists of 11 quality products featuring breakthrough delivery systems and advanced patented technologies targeting all facets of aging skin, pigmentation, enlarged pores, redness and acne. The range of products and protocols were designed to bridge the gap between therapeutic treatments and daily care. This system raises the bar by treating the skin at every layer so it is more resistant to age-related changes.
"After testing Dr. Obagi's latest line of medical skin care products on several patients, I saw the positive results received on many ages and skin types," says Dr. Graper. "I also respect that ZO® MEDICAL is only offered under the supervision of a medical doctor," continues Dr. Graper. "My patients love the improvement in their skin after being on a ZO® MEDICAL protocol designed for their skin," says Dr. Graper.

Two of the most popular products are BRIGHTENEX™ and RETAMAX™. BRIGHTENEX® is a non-hydroquinone skin brightener and correcting crème. Featuring oleosome technology-microspheres of naturally occurring, antioxidant-rich emollient oils and vitamins-combined with delayed release 1% retinol and melanin inhibitors-BRIGHTENEX® targets hyperpigmentation without irritating the skin. RETAMAX® is an active vitamin A mircroemulsion that triggers the natural formation of collagen. It combines 1% retinol with antioxidant buddleja plant stem cells and biomimetic proteins to trigger the natural formation of collagen and strengthen the skin barrier. Additional ingredients of vitamins C and E protect and brighten skin while reducing inflammation.
