What Is ZO® 3-Step Peel?
Chemical peels are an excellent way to exfoliate skin while fostering the growth of new cells for a healthy, radiant glow. The ZO® 3-Step Peel accomplishes all this and more.
ZO® 3-Step is a professional peel performed in our office to 1) exfoliate the outermost layers of skin, 2) stimulate cell growth in deeper layers of skin, and 3) calm and soothe skin to minimize irritation – all with little or no downtime. Patients also receive ZO® Medical Calming Crème-Post Procedure Skin Relief to use at home after the procedure, keeping any discomfort to a minimum.
The ZO® 3-Step Peel is safe and effective for all skin types and can be repeated every 3-4 weeks to help treat many skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin texture
- Sun damage
- Dull skin
- Enlarged pores
What Does the ZO® Step Peel Do?
Let’s start with what is in the ZO® 3-Step Peel. The special formulation that powers ZO® 3-Step combats the signs of aging and skin discoloration while providing antioxidant protection, anti-irritant benefits, and more.
The ZO® 3-Step Peel contains a blend of salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) in combination with retinol cream – all of which target the damaged top layers of your skin. As ZO® 3-Step penetrates your epidermis and upper dermis, it promotes the turnover of cells, stimulates collagen production, and restores moisture.
The result: a more youthful, visibly radiant glow.
Who Is a ZO® 3-Step Peel Best Suited For?
Again, the ZO® 3-Step Peel works for all skin types and colors. Your Forefront skin care expert can confirm if the ZO® 3-Step is a viable option for you.
For best results, your skin should be pre-conditioned with the use of a retinol or retinoic acid for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. Following a proper skin care regimen also helps protect your skin and enhance the peel’s effectiveness.
What Does the ZO® 3-Step Feel Like?
Most patients only have minor discomfort, experiencing a mild to moderate burning sensation for 5-10 minutes. During the procedure, the office may have a fan or a zimmer gently blow cool air on your skin to help alleviate any feelings of discomfort.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Post-treatment peeling is also typically mild to moderate, aided by the ZO® Medical Calming Crème-Post Procedure Skin Relief provided for you to take home.
The healing process usually lasts about a week, with 2-3 days of redness and 3-5 days of peeling. Avoid excessive sweating or sun exposure for at least 1-2 weeks after the procedure – otherwise, you can live your life as usual. Final results will take six weeks to appear, but you should begin to see improvement after just two weeks.
