What is ZO Skin Health?

ZO Skin Health is a line of medical-grade peels and other skincare products created by world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi. He has over 35 years of experience in dermatology and has used his extensive knowledge of skin to create products that not only improve the appearance of your skin but cause your skin to continue to regenerate from within. This means that not only will your skin look better in the short term, but by stimulating all layers of the skin, the aging process can be slowed. Because ZO Skin Health products contain prescription-strength ingredients, they are only available through a medical professional.

ZO 3-Step Peel

The 3-Step Stimulation Peel is a medical-grade peel that is supported by ZO Skin Health's daily skincare program to extend the benefits of the peel. The ZO 3-Step Peel is meant to be performed as a series of treatments designed to continually rejuvenate the skin. The peel is a blend of powerful exfoliants including:

  • 17% salicylic acid
  • 10% trichloroacetic acid
  • 5% lactic acid

This specially formulated blend helps to remove the outer layers of damaged skin, while other components of the formula help to keep skin reactions to a minimum. Benefits of the peel include:

  • Stimulating all layers of the skin for increased benefits and improved cell function
  • Removing the outer layer of damaged skin
  • Skin inflammation that can normally occur after a peel is subdued by Calming Creme Post Procedure Skin Relief
  • The downtime is minimal so the peel can be done every 3-4 weeks. Peeling may last for 2-4 days after the procedure.

What to expect during my ZO 3-Step Peel?

The 3-step system is a popular peel and safe for all skin types. It is designed to exfoliate the top layer of the skin while stimulating the deeper layers of the skin. Special ingredients soothe and calm the skin minimizing your downtime after the procedure.

Your expert aesthetician will perform the following three steps during your ZO 3-Step Peel:

  • Step 1: The first step is to apply the peel itself. This powerful blend will soothe the skin as it exfoliates.
  • Step 2: The next step is to apply the Stimulating Retinol Crème. This works to stimulate the skin on a deeper level. It is used to boost collagen and increase firmness.
  • Step 3: This is when the Calming Creme Post Procedure Skin Relief is applied. This cream will minimize any skin reactions such as inflammation. It also hydrates the skin.

You will be supplied with Calming Creme Post Procedure Skin Relief and Stimulating Retinol Crème to be used at home to enhance your results. Some may notice a yellow sheen to the skin, which passes within a day. Your skin may peel lightly for several days after the procedure.

ZO Controlled Depth Peel

The ZO Controlled Depth Peel is an advanced medical-grade peel that is performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Beck. It requires sedation and is used to improve:

  • Scars
  • Severe texture damage
  • Advanced melasma
  • Severe laxity

The ZO Controlled Depth Peel uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA 20-26%). This potent dermal peel is appropriate when powerful exfoliation is needed for intense skin renewal. It is a highly effective procedure that creates long term skin renewal.

Because the peel can penetrate deeply into the skin, it can reduce wrinkles and laxity due to aging. It has even been compared to a facelift in results. If you are a good candidate for this peel TCA can provide you with the following benefits:

  • Increased cell turnover resulting in a smooth, even skin tone
  • It can affect the deepest layers of the skin including the basal layer. This causes it to produce more uniform skin cells, resulting in healthier, smoother skin.
  • It regulates pigmented skin cells and creates an overall reduction of hyperpigmentation
  • Because the peel penetrates deep into the skin, fibroblasts are stimulated resulting in increased collagen, fewer wrinkles, and healthier-looking skin.
