ZO 3-Step Peel
Not just another ordinary peel, the ZO® 3-Step Peel™ is the only multifunctional epidermal peel designed to provide longer-lasting treatment benefits. Utilising a blend of exfoliants, a 6% concentration of retinol and multi-action agents that stimulate collagen and restore moisture balance, it evens skin texture for softer, smoother and tighter looking skin. The ZO® 3-Step Peel™ is an innovative in-office treatment for professional use only, designed to support dermal and epidermal stimulation.
We often recommend you starting on a ZO® program according to your skin type 4-6 weeks before the 3-Step Peel™ to help strengthen skin and enhance the benefits of it. The application of this peel can be easily tailored to each person, based on their tolerance level and can be repeated every 3-4 weeks. However, you should expect some downtime after this peel. To maintain results, the peel should be repeated 2-3 times per year. Then after the skin is fully recovered you should return to your ZO® daily program.

What will happen at my appointment?
When you come in for the 3 step stimulating peel, your expert practitioner will do the following:
Step 1- This is the application of the peel solution itself. A blend of salicylic, trichloracetic, and lactic acid; these ingredients minimise inflammation and help hydrate the skin.
Step 2- Stimulating Retinol Creme. This is applied after the peel solution, and works to stimulate cellular function at a deep level for collagen enhancement, firming, and wrinkle reduction.
Step 3- Application of the Calming Creme Post Procedure Skin Relief. This cream is used as a finishing product to minimise any inflammation and irritation that may result after the first two steps, and to restore moisture.
Who can have this treatment done?
This peel is suitable for all skin types and tones. However, to get the maximum benefits of this peel and to improve healing time, it is important to prepare your skin prior to the application of the peel We will advise of this at your initial consultation.
Which areas can be treated?
The most common area to be treated with the ZO 3-Step Stimulation Peel is the face but it can be performed on the neck, chest, hands and even the arms and legs if desired.
How soon will i notice a difference?
You will see the difference instantly and you will notice your skin is tighter, smoother and brighter-looking with a healthy glow!
After the peel, your skin may have a yellow tone but this is completely normal and when you wash your face the next day, this will have disappeared. You may also notice your skin begin to lightly peel the next day but this will only last for a couple of days.
How long will the results last?
Skin peels often achieve instant, glowing results and tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just one peel. For best results we recommend around 3 peel treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.
