ZO 3-Step Peel is one of the most effective treatments for the many signs of skin aging, and suitable for all skin types and colors. This peel is designed to treat Melasma, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven tone and texture, large pores, dull skin, as well as active acne and related scarring. Dr. Labbad has received specialized training for the application of ZO's 3-Step Peel from Dr. Obagi himself; the creator of this innovative treatment.
With this particular peel, it is very important to prepare your skin before treatment. ZO has created a renowned Getting Skin Ready (GSR) system with high potency retinol to condition your skin prior to your appointment. The use of the GSR system will maximize the results of the ZO 3-Step Peel.
As indicated by its name, the peel itself works in a 3-Step process. The protocol is as follows:
Step 1: Application of the peel solution to exfoliate the skin.
Step 2: Consists of the application of the Stimulating Retinol Creme that works to enhance cellular function at a deeper level for collagen production, stimulation of elastin, and wrinkle reduction.
Step 3: Calming Crème is applied to minimize inflammation and irritation caused by the first two steps. This cream also works to restore the moisture balance of the skin.
The key to this peel lies within Step 2, the Stimulating Retinol Creme (Vitamin A) which is an essential vitamin for the skin, best absorbed topically.
Vitamin A improves overall skin health and is one of the most effective OTC ingredients for aging skin as it is able to activate damaged cells from within to stimulate cellular function at the dermal level while simultaneously repairing damage at the epidermal level.
ZO peels are designed to achieve instant, results for tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just one treatment. For deeper repair, a series of treatments repeated every 3 to 4 weeks is recommended.
After treatment, it is common that skin will feel dry and/or appear red for 1 to 2 days. In approximately 2 to 7 days, dead skin will shed, revealing more youthful, brighter, and tighter skin.
At Revital Med Spa, Dr. Labbad performs the ZO 3-Step herself and will walk you through the entire process to ensure the best skin results.
