ZO® 3 – Step Peel™ and Chemical peels are used to minimize fine wrinkling on the face and neck, to even out the skin tone & texture, to improve melasma treatment and to reduce large pores and the appearance of sun damage. The peels are followed by an at-home treatment that produces longer lasting results than ordinary peels. They are suitable for all skin types.
They take less than 20 minutes and require no downtime. There may be some redness immediately following the procedure and some sloughing off or peeling of skin a few days later depending on the type of peel, your skin texture and the at-home products you have been using. This skin will begin to exfoliate (peel off) within a few days leaving the new skin pink and smooth. You can apply makeup after the procedures.
The peels support improvement of skin barrier protection and improve the skin’s ability to repair and renew itself as well as provide antioxidant protection and anti-irritant benefits.
In order to get the maximum benefits from chemical peels, it is recommended that treatments be repeated every 3 weeks for a total of 4 to 6 treatments. After that, a maintenance peel every 3 months is recommended to maintain beneficial effects. The peels can last at least a year or longer with appropriate skin treatment program and sunscreen usage.
