From at-home treatments to more invasive laser procedures, we have a selection of world-class skin care products available to you and patients of all ages at our practice in Beverly Hills, CA.

Teens and adults are both welcome to have an acne consultation at ZO Skin Centre®. We are trained in managing all types of acne. Our highly-skilled medical team takes a different approach with teen acne and adult acne. Why? It's not really the same condition. When a teen has an acne flare up, it is because of active oil glands that produce too much oil. The extra oil then gets trapped in the pores. Typically, teens have acne on their back, shoulders, chest, and especially anywhere on the face. Not only is it unattractive, it is harmful to the health of the skin as it can cause scarring, discoloration, and textural changes. Hormonal activity is the main culprit in adult acne, which is mainly found on the lower face, chin, and jawline. Teens and adults may be encouraging the skin to produce acne through bad diet, medications, genetics, a stressful lifestyle, cosmetics, or harm from a harsh or toxic environment. During your acne consultation, we will assess the skin for problem areas, identify the type of acne, and plan for a vigorous treatment plan to get the acne under control
You can call them beauty marks or moles, but what we call it at ZO Skin Centre® is a dermatological condition we can treat. The appearance of a new mole, a patch of moles, or a mole you have had since birth all may be a cause for a dermatological consultation. These pigmented lesions can also be a sign of melanoma or skin cancer. It is best to have moles checked out by a medical professional. You may also want to find out more about why you are sprouting new skin moles, or have found the courage to finally see about getting a mole removed. In any situation involving your mole(s), we will examine your skin and document the size of each mole (through a process called mole mapping). Then, we can make recommendations on how to manage the care or removal of the mole. You may also have concerns with a mole that has changed color or size, and we can consult with you on the next best steps to take as well.
We also offer dermatological consultations to assess the need for skin tag(s) removal. While skin tags are tiny pieces of skin that appear on the surface of your skin, they are harmless to your skin. They are the same color as your normal skin or can be a shade darker. Cosmetically, a skin tag on the face, eyelid, neck, or other areas may be bothersome or unattractive. Skin tags can also be commonly found under the arms, under folds of skin (from the friction), and the inner thighs.
When struggling with an ever-present bout of hormonal or genetic rosacea, you may experience a red tint (blushing) to your facial skin, see red capillaries on the cheeks and nose, have acne, and dry skin. While we do not have a cure for rosacea conditions, we can do our best to manage and control the damage of the skin. It is very important to have a thorough evaluation and analysis if you suffer from rosacea no matter if it is in a mild or severe stage.
At ZO Skin Centre®, we can educate you on how to care for your skin with calming treatments you can use at home. A healthy skin care routine may be the only recommendation we have for mild cases of rosacea and help soothe inflamed skin. For more severe cases, we will also suggest a daily skin care routine and a customized combination of therapies, such as a ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™ or ZO® Retinol-based product. Our skin care specialists provide the caring, calming treatments your weak skin requires so that you can enjoy having beautiful skin regardless of rosacea.
Psoriasis is a difficult dermatological condition to treat, but at ZO Skin Centre®, we believe in the beauty of your skin. While there are many types of psoriasis (where the skin cells over produce and accumulate on the skin), we do consult with patients in search of relief of this uncomfortable, painful skin condition. Psoriasis looks like dry, silvery-white scales that lays on top of inflamed, red, cracked skin. Patients with psoriasis who have this condition can see it anywhere on their body. The aftermath of each triggered psoriasis breakout and shedding, even if the cause is unknown, will cause scarring and damage to the look and feel of your skin. While we cannot cure psoriasis, we can help you manage your condition with our exclusive ZO® Skin Health products.
In a birthmark consultation, we will discuss whether or not there is a therapeutic skin solution available for you. For some candidates, we may have a series of skin brightening facial treatments or skin peels that may be able to decrease the visibility of your birthmark. We also have access to laser technologies that can remove hyperpigmentation spots, like port wine stains or large birthmarks.

"Zo Obagi creams are absolutely top notch. Really recommended! I have had persistent melasma problems for years. Now for 7 weeks I follow a skin cream program to suppress this. after only 2 weeks, and I am not exaggerating, I already had a clear result. My skin is more even in color, the Peelings process works and my skin feels like baby skin and even my wrinkles are less! May is my medical specialist in this field. And because every skin is unique, you first have a consultation with her per facetime / to see what is needed and what result you want to achieve yourself. really she is very professional and will help you further. There is a solution for everything. wrinkles, melasma, red vein skin, dry skin ... I am so enthusiastic about the products, but all the more about the time and advice that physician assistant May Ali gives you. I like her a lot she is a TOP expert. And I also like that they want to see you again after 3/4 weeks. A lot of attention is paid to this after checking and the process. So it is not just explanation, and buying products. Good guidance.

"I went to ZO Skin Centre because of sun damage / melasma/ wrinkles. I am so glad that I did! I saw May Ali who is awesome!! She took the time to answer all of my questions and explain the regimen that she put me on. I have now been using the regimen for a month and the results have been amazing. I honestly thought that I would have the dark melasma forever but now that’s it’s faded a lot, I have hope for it to completely disappear. I traveled from SLO County to see May initially but now am able to schedule appts. via FaceTime. Every time I text or phone May she gets right back to me. I am so thankful that I went there - the drive was definitely worth it!! I plan on being treated by May from here on out!!"- T.F. / Yelp / Jul 17, 2020
