ZO 3-Step Chemical Peel

ZO 3-Step Chemical Peel Before & Afters

The ZO 3-Step Chemical Peel was developed to improve the texture and tone of skin. After treatment, clients will have a visibly radiant and youthful glow.

The anti-aging, moderate-depth peel contains a blend of lactic, salicylic, and trichloracetic acid (TCA) and retinol cream that work together to remove the damaged topmost layers of skin. Treatment penetrates the epidermis and upper dermis to increase cell turnover, stimulate collagen production, and restore moisture balance.

The peel is an effective treatment option for any skin type or color. Our aestheticians will carefully evaluate the client’s skin to determine which type of peel is best for them.

What to Expect

3 Step Peel Kit
The first step involves application of the peel solution to the skin. A blend of trichloracetic acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid removes the outer layer of the epidermis, while saponins (a class of chemical compounds) are included to minimize skin reaction. Glycerin is also included to support hydration.
Next, the aesthetician will apply the Retinol Creme 6%. This cream utilizes a combination of 6% retinol and high performing ingredients to stimulate collagen production and cellular renewal, while providing antioxidant benefits and DNA protection.
The third step is application of the Calming Creme – Post Procedure Skin Relief. This advanced multi-function formulation rapidly relieves skin irritation and redness, while also re-balancing vital moisture content and improving the skin’s barrier function.
Steps two and three are then repeated. Clients should undergo a series of at least three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart for maximum results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prepare for treatment?
To achieve ideal results and protect the skin, clients should begin prepping the skin four to six weeks prior to treatment. Adherence to a proper skincare routine before undergoing the peel can enhance treatment effectiveness and prevent unintended damage.
Are there side effects?
Most patients have only minor discomfort, experiencing a mild to moderate burning sensation for five to 10 minutes during the procedure. A Zimmer machine gently blows cool air onto the skin to minimize burning or stinging sensations.
