We love what we do at Ona and clients like this are the reason we do it!

Our goal is to make you more confident and feel beautiful even if you struggle with acne or other skin conditions that can make you self conscious. This client had been experiencing inflammation for many years and tried countless skincare regimens and treatments in order to obtain healthier clear skin. After years of disappointment and lots of money spent she came to us in desperate need. A thorough skin analysis by one of Ona’s experienced Aestheticians was given as well as going over her diet as a process of elimination, she was advised to start a strict ZO Skin Health Regimen. As exciting as this was for us because we know that ZO is a result driven line, we also had to warn our client of the first stage of using the products which is the acclimation phase. Anytime you introduce new and/or medical grade products into your daily regimen your skin can react sometimes causing redness, itchiness, and flakiness. Often times it will get a little worse before it gets better as your skin begins to purge. Some patients will get discouraged during this stage and stop the regimen thinking that their skin is having an allergic reaction to the products so care os taken to explain what to expect and how to minimize any discomfort. As frustrating as this part can be with dedication like this client had within a short 6 months we can change your skin. Be patient results cannot happen over night but they will happen. Below is the ZO product regimen developed for this particular client. Step-by-step, Morning and night. Pictures of her process are attached. Proof that sticking with the regimen that the Ona Skincare experts recommend will deliver healthy skin results!
