What to Expect From the 3-Step ZO Peel
Step 1: Peel Solution
A blend of salicylic acid, trichloracetic acid and lactic acid removes the outer layer of the epidermis.
Saponins (a class of chemical compounds) are included to minimise skin reactions
Glycerin is also present to improve hydration.
Step 2: Retinol Creme 6%
This creme utilizes a combination of 6% retinol and high performing ingredients to maximise collagen stimulation, cellular renewal, antioxidant benefits and DNA protection.
Step 3: Calming Creme – Post Procedure Skin Relief
An advanced multi-function formulation that rapidly relieves skin irritation and redness. Whilst also re-balancing vital moisture content and improving the skin’s barrier function.
ZO peels are designed to achieve instant, results for tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just one treatment, however, being done in a series that are repeated every 3-4 weeks is recommended for deeper repair. You can expect to have two to three days of your skin being red and feeling dry, anywhere from the third and fourth days following your peel; your dead skin will slough off in a way similar to that of a mild sunburn.
