Created by Dr. Obagi in 2007, ZO Skin Health is the leader in medical-grade skincare. Built on the philosophy of “creating healthy skin for life – for all patients,” ZO products strive to bridge the gap between typical “spa like” treatments and more advanced therapeutic treatments.
One of the most popular ZO skin treatments is the 3-step-peel. This in-office treatment utilizes a blend of exfoliants including salicylic acid, TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and lactic acid, and retinol to resurface the skin to reveal glowing, younger looking skin. The addition of antioxidants and anti-skin irritants also help to further protect the skin against irritation. The 3-step-peel is a quick 30-minute treatment that will transform the landscape of your skin.
Preconditioning The Skin
In order to ensure peel success, it is vital to pre-condition the skin. A daily regimen of ZO products will create the perfect base for the peel. A six-week homecare system is required to achieve anticipated goals. Clients should expect to use the following products:
- ZO Exfoliating Cleanser
- ZO Exfoliating Polish
- ZO Complexion Renewal Pads
- ZO Daily Power Defense
- Medical grade retinol such as ZO Retinol Skin Brightener 0.5%
Immediately following the peel, clients should expect to see shiny skin and mild redness. Within the next 24-48 hours skin will begin to react to the peel and will begin the shedding process. It is important to follow your therapist’s protocol and avoid sun, heat, cosmetics, and picking at the skin during the healing process. Within seven to ten days you will have completely glowing skin. Clients should expect to see a decrease in depth of fine lines and wrinkles, decrease in hyperpigmentation, improvement in acne, and overall improvement in tone and texture of the skin.
