We offer several types of ZO peels from superficial peels to medium-depth peels. These peels are performed to stimulate collagen production, control oiliness, improve texture issues, and eliminate pigment concerns.
During a chemical peel at our office, a specially prepared chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the damaged and dull outermost layer(s) of skin cells to reveal a smoother complexion.
ZO Stimulator Peel
This superficial exfoliating chemical peel tightens pores, treats acne breakouts, and gives the skin a beautiful glow. What our patients love about the Stimulator Peel by ZO is that its mild formula of lactic, citric, and salicylic acid gently exfoliates the skin while stimulating collagen production for quick benefits with practically zero downtime.
The Zo Stimulator Peel is best for concerns like:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin tone
- Large pores
- Dull skin
- Acne, in some cases
ZO 3-Step Peel
For a more comprehensive skin resurfacing, the ZO 3-Step Peel comes packed with alpha hydroxy acids including salicylic acid and retinol. This deep chemical peel resurfaces, evens skin tone, and stimulates the production of collagen by going deep into the skin barrier and shoring up the skin’s protection against environmental damage and sun exposure.
This treatment produces marked complexion improvement when used in a series of repeat treatments. This peel typically produces 2-6 days of flaking and peeling, so it’s best used for people who can take some time away from social events or going out in public.
Who is a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels can be customized to your unique skin concerns and tolerance for light, medium, or deep peels. People with sensitive skin should tell their provider before undergoing any chemical treatment in case the acids used to dissolve dead skin cells and exfoliate the skin create too much irritation or discomfort.
Our chemical peels are best used on people who are looking to improve acne and acne scarring, skin texture, sun spots, and aging skin. Those who are in good health and realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment are most likely good candidates for a chemical peel. In any case, however, a consultation with one of our skincare specialists can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Results and Recovery
Recovery time will depend on the depth of the peel; the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery time. However, some redness and peeling are to be expected for nearly all skin resurfacing chemical peels.
