ZO® CHEMICAL PEELS
WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?
Chemical Peels can reveal a fresh, more vibrant layer of skin and can be combined with other treatments and at-home products to rejuvenate your skin longer between treatments. We carry two different ZO Chemical Peels:
Stimulator Peel: With 1% retinol to penetrate into the layers of your skin, this peel is great for sun damage, dry texture, wrinkles, and fine lines. This peel is minimally invasive, but it will give you visible skin improvements, a softer texture, and tighter skin.
3-Step Peel: With 6% retinol and anti-inflammatory agents, this peel is an exfoliator for all skin types, which will repair your skin that has been damaged from scarring, pigmentation issues, age spots, and more, because of its deep penetration into your epidermis and upper dermis. This peel is longer-lasting and will stimulate your skin's ability to repair and renew itself. You will need to take some time off from your home skin care program for your skin to heal. Once the peeling process is complete, you will have a new, healthy layer of skin, see fewer wrinkles and even color, and have incredibly caress worthy skin.
