ZO Skin Health in Baltimore with Dr. Dean Kane

About our Extensive Skin Care Program

We have structured our Skin Care Program to meet all your ongoing needs and make sure we achieve your desired results.

When you begin on our ZO Skin care program we like to start slowly as these products are prescription level and very effective. We like for you to have a slow adjustment to the skincare regiment.

We have you come back in two weeks to see how you have done on these products and provide a free enzyme clean up. We then have you come back again 2-4 weeks again later to ensure the products are working correctly for you and that your skin is improving. We then set up routine visits to ensure you continue to progress and achieve healthy skin again. During your first visit, there is a one-time consultation fee of $75.  For all subsequent these visits there are no visit charges. Our peels and facials are personalized to meet your skincare needs and your goals.

We offer a wide array of ZO skin products by Dr. Zein Obagi, facials, peels, Microneedling with PRP, Blu Light Therapy for acne and lasers including Laser Hair Removal, IPL, Fractional Pixel, Radio Frequency to help with all skin issues at Dr. Dean Kane’s Medspa. Specifically, we use Dr. Obagi’s newest line called ZO Skin Health that works on people of all skin color and skin issues. It is an extremely effective system that works very quickly. We specialize in helping people of all ethnic diversities and people of color.

Skin Care FAQ’s

I am African American, what can be done about my pigmentation problems? Or How to I get rid of the hyperpigmentation on my face?

In the MedSpa of Dr. Dean Kane in Baltimore we specialize in dealing with pigmentation problems of people of all color. Dr. Kane has been using Dr. Obagi’s ZO Skin Health System for over 28 years which has been extremely successful for people from all ethnic diversity.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

There are two main causes: one is long term sun exposure that brings unwanted melanin to the skin surface and chronic stressors on the skin like irritation from ongoing acne.

Is pigmentation permanent?

No, Dr. Dean Kane in Baltimore helps patients with hyperpigmentation in his MedSpa using Dr. Zein Obagi’s Skin Health Products that effectively remove the unwanted pigmentation in people of all skin color.

What treatments are the best for pigmentation?

A home treatment is best to provide ongoing control of the melanin production. Dr. Dean Kane uses ZO Skin Health System for a strong prescription based home system. For deep pigmentation, Dr. Kane will then offer a strong TCA Chemical Peel that will lift and clear the deep levels of pigmentation often known as melisma.

What skin products help with hyperpigmentation?

The key products are Retin A or the generic Tretinoin and hydroquinone. The Retin A helps to exfoliate the dead layers of skin and stimulate new skin cells. The hydroquinone reduces the melanin production that causes the hyperpigmentation. Dr. Obagi’s skin product is called Pigment Control that has 4% hydroquinone.

I go out in the sun can I use the Obagi Skin Products?

Yes but you must use a very strong sun block, a big hat and sun glasses to protect the new skin. Dr. Kane’s medspa really reply’s on the Elta sun blocks for great protection.

What can I do about my acne scarring?

In the Baltimore MedSpa of Dr. Dean Kane there are many procedures used to help with acne scarring. Dr. Kane believes in using ZO Skin Health Products on a daily basis to prevent more acne. For Scarring the combination of MicroNeedling with PRP, TCA Chemical Peels and the use of fillers and PDO threads are all used to smooth and plump out the deep scar tissue.

What can be done about redness on my face?

Intense Pulse Light or IPL is ideal to laser the red pigmentation. In Dr. Dean Kane’s MedSpa in Baltimore, he recommends at least 3 treatments of IPL to help reduce and control the red concerns of the face.

What can be done for acne?

Acne is caused by oils on the top of the skin clogging the pores and trapping bacteria under the skin. In the MedSpa of Dr. Dean Kane in Baltimore he recommends using the ZO Skin Health Products, specifically the oil control pads, Tretinoin, Skin Polish and enzyme peels. All of these products will control the oil productions, provide daily exfoliation and allow the pores to remain open and free of bacteria.

Overview about ZO Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is an excellent way to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance of wrinkled, spotted, or otherwise aged skin. We offer a range of chemical peels that can contain one of the following acids: glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Retinol or salicylic acid. The purpose of these chemical peels is to remove damaged outer layers and expose underlying fresh, smooth, unblemished skin. Glycolic peels are great for superficial treatment for acne patients to lift layers of skin that block pores. TCA peels are stronger with varied concentrations giving them more flexibility and effectiveness to treat a variety of facial conditions. The ZO Obagi Peels that we offer in our MediSpa are described below.

ZO Controlled Depth Peel (TCA) is a strong peel treatment that will effectively reduce brown pigmentation, improve the texture of the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles and tighten skin laxity. This is the strongest of all our peels and it is performed by Dr. Dean Kane. A person undergoing this treatment will need prior preparation with Tretinoin and ZO Blending Cream. A 7-day recovery period is to be expected. It is a highly effective treatment that will tighten and brighten and equals the effects of a CO2 laser resurfacing procedure, but with much less discomfort than laser treatment.
