At Skin Spectrum, chemical peels offer another highly effective method to exfoliate the skin and foster the growth of fresh, new, healthy cells. ZO® Skin Health is renowned for quality and efficacy, and its peels are no exception. The ZO® 3-Step Peel™ was developed to better the condition of the skin, and the post-peel improvement seen in texture and tone creates a visibly radiant glow – a glow that recaptures the appearance of youth.

HOW DOES THE ZO® 3-STEP PEEL™ WORK?

This anti-aging, moderate-depth peel contains a blend of salicylic, lactic, and trichloracetic acid (TCA) in combination with retinol cream, all of which causes sloughing of the damaged topmost layers of skin. It penetrates the epidermis and upper dermis to promote the turnover of cells and stimulate the production of collagen, while restoring moisture balance.

An excellent option for any skin type or color, the ZO 3-Step Peel is just one of the peels offered at Skin Spectrum. To select the peel that is perfect for you, our dermatology experts will consider your distinct concerns and the permissible amount of downtime.

WHAT CONDITIONS DOES THIS PEEL TREAT?

The ZO 3-Step Peel addresses a variety of skincare issues, including:

  • – Pigmentation from sun damage, such as brown spots and uneven skin tone
  • – Melasma
  • – Enlarged pores
  • – Uneven skin texture
  • – Dullness
  • – Acne and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

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.

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.

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