Talking Skin Health with Dr. Vu Ho

Sponsored Post: 

A few months ago I decided to share the tales of my journey to "Facing Fifty." George Orwell once said, "At 50, everyone has the face he deserves." Maybe so, but this is Dallas and no one in their right mind lives with what God gave them. We have too many plastic surgeons, stylists, hair dressers and estheticians for that! The big 5-0 is looming large and that has me reevaluating myself, inside and out. What am I doing right and what areas do I need to make changes or improvements? There's no denying that one of the most noticeable things that is changing is my skin. Gravity has set in and thanks to a new magnifying mirror I recently bought at Target, I can now see every imperfection 500x better than before.

I was recently approached by Dr. Vu Ho to meet with him and learn about the ZO Skin Health line. Dr. Ho is a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon and the owner of Beautiful Faces MedSpa, so I jumped at the chance to get advice on how to combat aging from such a knowledgeable source. He has recently been selected to be the exclusive national Physician Educator for the ZO Skin Health Controlled Depth Peel training program created by world-renowned skin care innovator, Dr. Zein Obagi of Beverly Hills and the day I met with him, he was conducting a training for physicians Downtown at the Westin Dallas Hotel.

What I liked most about his outreach to me was that he talked about skin health and not just skin care.  "I am so excited about bringing this state-of-the-art peel and all the ZO products to our patients in North Texas.” Dr. Obagi explained, “The Controlled Depth Peel can be used in all skin types and ethnicities, and was created to eliminate the confusion, limitations, and risks associated with other peels on the market. By eliminating guesswork, the Controlled Depth Peel offers maximal safety and reliability. It’s the best in class in restoring skin health.” Dr. Ho sent me home with several products from the ZO Skin Health line and after just a few weeks, I am completely obsessed with the Offects Hydrating Cleanser. Not only is it great at removing your makeup, it leaves your face soft and it smells clean and fresh. I am big on how products SMELL. That's a total make-it or break-it thing with me. I can't wait to go back and meet with Dr. Ho at the Beautiful Faces offices to let him give my face the once over and give me a personal recommendation on products and services to consider. Stay tuned for that!

Dr. Ho’s Plano-based Beautiful Faces provides facial cosmetic surgery and physician-supervised aesthetic services to patients all over North Texas, West Texas and Oklahoma. Beautiful Faces MedSpa offers a complete array of skin products and services. Adding ZO Skin Health products takes the practice to new levels of service for patients.
