The Zo® 3-Step Peel™ isn’t just any peel. It’s a revolutionary treatment for a variety of skin concerns, including Melasma, sun damage, aging, uneven texture, and acne. The unusual part? It’s a “multifunctional epidermal” peel that provides longer-lasting benefits than other treatments.
With a blend of lactic, salicylic, and trichloroacetic acids, this peel removes the outermost layer of the epidermis. Not only does this support dermal and epidermal stimulation, but it also gives the patient’s face a softer, tighter appearance.
Although the 3-Step Peel™ process can be tailored by an aesthetician to meet individual needs, it follows a patented process created by the renowned Dr. Zein Obagi, a famous dermatologist in Beverly Hills.
Let’s take a look at what has made this treatment so effective for thousands of people.
First Step: The Peel Treatment
The Zo® 3-Step Peel™ begins with the exfoliating peel itself. The blend of three acids removes the outer layer of dead skin, then saponins are introduced to minimize skin reactions to the treatment. The peel administration experience is semi-uncomfortable but only lasts for about five minutes.
Second Step: Retinol Creme Application
Next, the Zo Stimulating Retinol Creme (6%) is applied. The ubiquinone in this skincare creme stimulates cellular renewal while the antioxidants boost your DNA protection and collagen levels. Because this creme is applied after the aggressive peel, the ingredients are able to deeply penetrate your skin, counteracting signs of aging, sun damage, and other concerns.
Third Step: Calming Créme Application
Lastly, a Calming Crème is applied. The procedure often leaves patients feeling like they have a mild sunburn, but this product minimizes irritation and restores moisture to the skin. Patients will need to take home a sample of this anti-inflammatory creme and apply twice per day for a few days after treatment.
The Benefits of a ZO® 3-Step Peel™
The Zo® 3-Step Peel™ provides long-lasting benefits by fully removing the top layer of the epidermis, then mitigating discomfort and irritation with the application of specially formulated cremes. When applied correctly by a professional, the peel should:
Beyond the cosmetic benefits, the Zo® 3-Step Peel™ also improves invisible qualities within your skin, such as its barrier function and ability to repair/renew itself. After just a few days, you’ll begin to notice brighter, healthier-looking skin, but the benefits won’t stop there.
As long as the Zo® 3-Step Peel™ is repeated in three-to-four-week intervals (at least four times a year), your skin will more effectively shed dead, damaged skin and maintain a glowing appearance.
Potential Side Effects of the Treatment
The Zo® 3-Step Peel™ is entirely safe, but of course, there is always the chance for minimal side effects (as with any skin treatment). These symptoms of irritation are usually temporary and will subside within a few days after the peel.
The most commonly reported peel side effects are:
It is exceedingly rare for these side effects to last for more than a few days. If you have concerns, or if you have experienced any of these symptoms for a prolonged period of time, speak with your dermatologist or clinician immediately.
