A trichloroacetic acid(TCA)-based peel, the ZO® Medical 3-Step Peel utilizes a unique blend of salicylic, trichloroacetic, lactic acids and other soothing ingredients for a potent combination that can improve your skin’s look, texture and feel in a matter of minutes. It exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, evens out skin tone and provides instant rejuvenation that improves overall complexion after just one session.
This peel allows the doctor to control the depth of the peel and also provides you with the opportunity to select the number of coats applied for a truly tailored skin treatment process based on your skin’s individual needs.
This procedure also includes an at-home treatment that produces longer lasting results than ordinary peels.
It is recommended for treatment of the following:
This treatment starts with an in-office chemical peel(step 1) that involves applying or brushing on a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin. It is then followed by application of Retinol Cream(step 2) that utilizes a combination of 6% retinol and high performing ingredients to maximize collagen stimulation, cellular renewal, as well as offering antioxidant benefits and DNA protection. Lastly, application of Calming Creme(step 3) to relieve skin irritation and redness while re-balancing vital moisture content and improving the skin’s barrier function.
Most patients experience a tingling sensation during the peel process, with some reporting mild to moderate pain during the procedure.
This procedure can be repeated in 3-4 weeks. For maintenance, 2-3 sessions in a year is recommended.
The ZO® Medical 3-Step Peel is suitable for the majority of skin types and can be used to improve the condition of a range of skin complaints.
During the recovery period, you will experience skin redness followed by skin peeling beginning within two to three days from the procedure. This peeling will continue for approximately five to seven days.
Following any chemical peel, your skin may be slightly sensitive for 7-14 days therefore it is extremely important to protect your skin through the use of a non-chemical sun protection (SPF 30 or higher) at all times. You are also advised to use the Calming Cream that is included in this treatment. Nonetheless, duration and severity of down time differs from person to person.
You will have tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin immediately after your first peel. However, when the healing process has completely finished, you will notice dramatic results to the tone, texture, and feel of your skin. Your complexion will become firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking. These results will only continue to improve over the next four to six weeks.
ZO® Medical 3-Step Peel is one of the safest available for skin rejuvenation. However, temporary redness and dryness following a treatment is common. As with all treatments and different skin reactions, the possible risks involved in chemical peels are infection, scarring and cold sore breakouts.
