ZO Peel

Who is a good candidate? Who is NOT a good candidate?
The ZO Stimulator Peel is a mild chemical peel that is safe for all skin types. Anyone who wants glowing, dewy skin and a refreshed look is a great candidate for this treatment. The ZO 3 step peel is not suitable if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or on antibiotics

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 Crème 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 Crème is applied to minimize irritation and inflammation and restore moisture.

Why do the procedure/benefits?
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.

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.
