ZO® 3-Step Peel™
This tried and true method of reversing skin damage has been overshadowed in recent years by laser and light technology, but facial peels are still one of the most effective ways to treat signs of aging, discoloration and UV damage. The new 3-Step Stimulation Peel from ZO® Medical works to improve the health of facial skin through exfoliation, cellular stimulating and a calming post-treatment cream – with little or no downtime. An innovative, in-office treatment peel targeting melasma, acne, fine lines, rough texture, large pores and dullness, followed by an at-home treatment that produces longer lasting results than ordinary peels. Suitable for any skin type or color.
How does it work?
It is touted as a highly effective treatment for many of the signs of skin aging, including melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores and dullness, and also for acne. The 3-Step Stimulation Peel is a professional peel and must be performed in a physician’s office by a licensed skincare professional.
Step 1 of the system’s three steps is the peel itself, which is formulated to remove the outermost layer of skin. Composed of salicylic acid (17%), trichloracetic acid (10%) and lactic acid (5%), the peel also contains saponins to minimize inflammation and glycerin for hydration.
Step 2 is application of the Stimulating 6% Retinol Creme. Applied after the peel solution, the cream works to stimulate cellular function at a deep skin level. The results include collagen enhancement as well as firming and wrinkle reduction.
Step 3 refers to the application of the Calming Crème Post Procedure Skin Relief. This cream works to minimize inflammation and irritation that may result from the first two steps, as well as restore the moisture balance of the skin. You can take the cream home to apply twice daily following the in-office treatment to speed the healing process.
