A Closer Look at The ZO 3-Step Chemical Peel in Austin
As the name implies, there are three major components to the ZO 3-Step Peel.
Step 1 is the peel itself, comprised of Salicylic acid, Trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and Lactic acid. This is the primary exfoliator, removing the entire top layer of skin where many defects and wrinkles, as well as deep-set oil and dirt, reside.
Many peels would stop here, but this is where ZO 3-Step becomes special.
Step 2 is the Stimulating Retinol Creme, designed to immediately get to work stimulating and healing the newly-uncovered skin beneath the peel area. Packed with Vitamin A as well, it stimulates the skin at a cellular level, increasing collagen production for firming and wrinkle reduction.
Step 3 is application of the Calming Creme, which reduces irritation and redness following the peel, as well as restoring moisture. This Calming Creme is sent home with the patient to use for the next several days, minimizing the after-effects of the peel and speeding skin recovery.
The ZO 3-Step Peel is appropriate for all skin colors and types, and is effective for:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Rough texture / dullness
- Improving color, texture, tone, and smoothness
- Stimulating cellular function
- Improving collagen production
Further, clinical studies have shown that the ZO 3-Step Peel provides longer-lasting benefits than alternatives. However, the peel can be repeated every 3-4 weeks, as needed for deeper skin repair, until the patient achieves the youthful look they desire.
