About the Treatment

What is a ZO Peel?

The ZO 3- step peel is a great treatment for skin aging, Melasma, fine lines, large pores, acne, sun damage, uneven texture and dull skin. It is designed to exfoliate the top layers of skin and stimulate cellular function in the skin’s deeper layers whilst calming and soothing the skin.

How is the treatment done?

To achieve ideal results and for the skin’s safety, our providers recommend prepping the skin for four to six weeks prior to treatment. Adherence to the proper skincare regimen before the procedure can enhance effectiveness and protect the skin from unintended damage.

Most patients tolerate the ZO 3-Step Peel with only minor discomfort, experiencing a mild to moderate burning sensation for five to 10 minutes. A Zimmer machine gently blows cool air on the skin to alleviate any feelings of burning or stinging.

Step 1: Exfoliating your skin through the application of the peel.

Step 2: The Stimulating Retinol Creme is applied to stimulate your cellular function, enhance collagen at a deeper level, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and firm your skin.

Step 3: The Calming Creme is applied to minimize irritation and inflammation and restore moisture.

ZO 3-Step Peel Difference

Your skin requires vitamin A at a topical level. This need cannot be filled with oral consumption of vitamin A. This vitamin is one of the most effective treatments for aging skin because it improves the overall health of your skin, stimulates the cellular function in your skin and helps repair any damage. The peel provides long-lasting and numerous benefits shown to be effective for improving the quality of your skin. The three-step process was designed to emphasize consistently healthy skin as opposed to just treating the symptoms so common with unhealthy skin.

What areas can you treat?

The most common area treated with the ZO 3-Step peel is the face. The peel is equally as effective for your neck, legs, arms, hands and chest. The results from the peel are often apparent instantly. You will notice your skin is tighter, brighter, smoother and has a glow after only one peel.

How long is recovery and what does it look like?

Acute healing that lasts for approximately one week involves redness for two to three days and peeling for three to five days, although it is not necessary to hide at home. You should avoid exercise, excessive sweating, and sun exposure for one to two weeks following the ZO 3-Step Peel.

How often do I have to get maintenance treatments?

We suggest a series of at least three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart, depending on the reason for treatment.
