There is an inherent bond between medicine and skin health and at Essex Private Doctors we prescribe professional cosmeceuticals (products which combine cosmetics and pharmaceuticals) to help patients address dermal concerns, and improve the skin’s natural function.

Our team of highly experienced practitioners administer Dr. Obagi’s scientifically tested ZO Skin Health range.  Professional cosmeceuticals products designed to address skin concerns at the deepest level and protect skin from the external damage and premature aging caused the sun and pollution.

These professional products achieve far more dramatic results than high street cosmetics brands because they include higher percentage doses of active ingredients such as AHA’S (alpha hydroxyl acids), glycolic acid, salicylic acid, peptides, hyaluronic acid and retinol.

Dr Athreya is an experienced ZO prescriber and is part of the ZO UK Faculty. He had the honour of sharing the lecture platform with Dr Obagi himself at his last foreign lecture trip at FACE Conference held in London in 2017.
