The ZO Philosophy

The ZO Skin Health Circle represents a continuum wherein therapeutic skincare, maintenance, daily skincare and prevention are addressed with skin health as the main objective.

ZO products are based on the latest advances in skin therapy technologies with specific protocols to provide comprehensive and continuous skin health solutions for all skin types, genders and ages.

Many physicians around the world, including Dr. Shermak, support the ZO Skin Health Circle philosophy and utilize the full spectrum of ZO Skin Health and ZO medical products in optimizing skin health for their patients.

The 4 phases of ZO’s skincare strategy:

  • Therapeutic treatments provided by healthcare professionals using prescribed products and unique protocols to correct medical skin conditions.
  • Maintenance designed to prevent reoccurrence of persistent skin problems, keeping skin strong and healthy while looking and acting younger.
  • Daily skincare solutions to help promote cellular function and achieve healthier looking skin.
  • Prevention to minimize UV damage, prevent DNA damage and protect skin from environmental aggressors.

Popular approaches to ZO products include:

  • Basic cleansing and toning
  • Retin A-based products to treat fine lines and wrinkles and provide skin tightening
  • Hydroquinone and non-hydroquinone therapies to reduce pigmentation
  • Vitamin C antioxidant to protect and refresh the skin
  • Exfoliation

We are officially open, thanks to Governor Hogan!

We welcome new patients and are looking forward to performing elective surgical procedures, starting the week of May 11.

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued risk COVID-19 presents. For this reason, we will be instituting the following protocols:

  • We will have Sandy stationed at our entryway with sterilizer and a COVID-19 survey for our new patients to fill out. Sandy will also check your temperature and collect your paperwork at the door – our medical intake form can be filled out prior to your coming to the office, or you can fill it out after you arrive.
  • Please bring a mask for any in-office visits. If you are coming for surgery, please bring a paper mask if you have one. For any other visits, cloth masks or paper masks are fine.
  • We need any patient waiting to be seen to wait in your car until we can safely accommodate you in an exam room. We need to respect social distancing and are spacing our patients out to assure safety.
  • We can only allow the patient to come in to the office for examination. Friends or family will need to wait outside the office.
  • For those assisting our postoperative patients on the day of surgery: we ask that you kindly wait in your car and we will call you in to discuss postoperative instructions.
  • I am continuing to schedule Virtual Consultations which is exciting and new! Check out my Resources section or header at drshermak.com to get started!

I look forward to seeing you soon!


As of July 1st, the staff members at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland will no longer routinely be wearing masks following the state guidelines per Governor Hogan.

All of our staff members are vaccinated.

If any patient would prefer that the medical staff member caring for them wear a mask, please let us know and we will gladly do so.

We treat patients with compormised immune systems and we need to be respectful of their needs.

We are asking patients who are not fully vaccinated to please wear masks while in our office so that we may continue to safely accomodate our patients with weakened immune systems.

Thank you!
