#1: The first step is exfoliating your skin through the application of the peel.
#2: The Stimulating Retinol Creme is applied during the second step to stimulate your cellular function, enhance collagen at a deeper level, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and firm your skin.
#3: The Calming Creme is applied during the third step to minimize irritation and inflammation and restore moisture.
The most common area treated with the ZO 3-Step peel is the face. The peel is equally as effective for your neck, legs, arms, hands and chest. The results from the peel are often apparent instantly. You will notice your skin is tighter, brighter, smoother and has a glow after only one peel. For a deeper repair and optimal results, you can have a series of treatments.
The ZO 3-Step Peel Procedure
The treatment begins when the peel solution is applied to your targeted treatment area. The solution contains five percent lactic acid, ten percent TCA and seventeen percent salicylic acid to remove the epidermis or the outer layer of your skin. The next step is the application of the Stimulating Retinol Creme to your skin. This is applied after the superficial peel to enable a deeper penetration of the retinol into your skin. Your skin cells are stimulated leading to an improvement in irregular pigmentation, a reduction in wrinkles, toning and firming.
Ubiquinone is an important ingredient in the Stimulating Retinol Creme because it stimulates a cellular renewal. The Creme also contains powerful antioxidants such as leontopodium alpinum meristem and marrubium vulgare, protects your DNA with beta-glycan and boosts your collagen levels with myristoyl tripeptide to reduce wrinkles.
Post-procedure skin relief is applied during the final step with the Calming Creme. This restores the moisture balance and relieves any irritation. The ingredients in the Creme increase your production of collagen and hyaluronic acid to further improve your skin. Your skin is protected and soothed by the anti-inflammatories and powerful antioxidants in the Creme.
