3-Step Peel

What is the ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel?

The ZO® 3-Step Peel is an aggressive-strength peel suitable for all skin types and colors, with 5-7 days of healing time. This innovative in-office treatment is followed by an at-home treatment that yields longer lasting results than ordinary peels. Indications for this peel include acne, skin laxity, sun damage, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Who is a Good Candidate for the ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel?

The ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel can be used for patients of any skin type and is shown to be effective for a wide range of concerns. You may be a good candidate for the ZO 3-Step Peel if you are concerned about signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage and age spots, or sagging. It can also be helpful for issues like dullness, acne, texture concerns, or melasma. It can also be used in multiple treatment areas including the face, neck, chest, arms, or legs. During a consutlation, your aesthetician will evaluate your skin and review your concerns to determine whether the ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel is your best option.

The ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel Procedure

As the name suggests, the ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel is completed in three stages. After cleansing your skin, your aesthetician will then apply the peel solution to your skin. This contains lactic acid, salicylic acid, and TCA to exfoliate damaged or dead skin cells and debris away from your skin. Next, a 6% Retinol Crème is applied to the skin. This crème can now penetrate deep into the skin, as the peel has already removed rough, dead skin cells from the surface. The retinol will help reduce wrinkles and create a firmer, more elastic texture while also reducing unwanted pigmentation. This stage also uses antioxidant ingredients to protect the skin and encourage new cells to regenerate. Finally, the Calming Crème is applied to the skin. This step stimulates new collagen and hyaluronic acid protection to create a healthy and youthful appearance with improved elasticity and hydration. It also helps to create a barrier to protect the skin.

Recovery and Results After the ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel

Immediately after the ZO Skin Health 3-Step Peel, you will notice that the skin feels rough for up to 48 hours. By the third or fourth day, the skin will begin to peel and shed dead skin cells. Throughout this period, you will also notice redness and sensitivity. Follow your aestheticians directions regarding skin care and avoid sun exposure as much as possible, wearing SPF 30+. Most patients will start to see improvement in their skin’s appearance about two weeks after their treatment, with final results visible at around six weeks. At this point, you should see reduced redness or hyperpigmentation and overall smoother, refreshed, and luminous skin.

Ossential Stimulator Peel

What is the ZO Skin Health Ossential Stimulator Peel?

The Ossential® Stimulator Peel is the perfect “lunchtime” peel for all skin types, providing healthier skin with no irritation or downtime. This is a mild peel that improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and rough or dry textures. A series of peels is recommended to provide the best overall results. However, you will see tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin after just one peel.

Who is a Good Candidate for the ZO Skin Health Ossential Stimulator Peel?

The ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is a gentle exfoliating peel which is designed to create a healthy, glowing look by removing dead skin cells and other impurities without causing redness or peeling. The peel is sometimes referred to as a “red carpet peel” because of its popularity with celebrities just before events. In particular, ZO Ossential Stimulator Peels may be beneficial for patients dealing with oily or acne-prone skin, fine lines, or dullness. However, because it is a gentle peel, patients looking for more drastic results from issues such as scarring or deeper wrinkles may benefit from another treatment option. During a consultation at Maxwell Aesthetics Med Spa, your aesthetician will review your cosmetic goals and assess your skin to make a recommendation for your best treatment option.

The ZO Skin Health Ossential Stimulator Peel Procedure

Before applying the Ossential® Stimulator Peel, your aesthetician will first cleanse and exfoliate your skin using professional-quality products. Next, they will apply a neutralizing peel prep product to the skin before finally applying the Ossential® Stimulator Peel. After carefully timing the peel, your aesthetician will then use a neutralizer to balance the skin’s pH before applying serums to nourish and calm the skin. Finally, SPF is applied to the skin to protect it as you return to your daily routine.

Recovery After the ZO Skin Health Ossential Stimulator Peel

The ZO Skin Health Ossential Stimulator Peel requires no downtime. Unlike other chemical peels, this treatment does not cause redness or visible peeling. It is a suitable option for patients looking for a refreshed and glowing appearance just before an event or special occasion. Results can be seen immediately after treatment. You will notice a more even complexion and a youthful glow.

If you choose, you can schedule a series of Ossential Stimulator Peel treatments to achieve more significant results. Some patients receive a series of three to four Ossential Stimulator Peels over the course of six to eight weeks so they can achieve enhanced results.
