Light to Medium Depth Chemical Peels

These peels include glycolic, salicylic, enzyme and lactic acid peels. The ZO® Stimulation peel is also in this category of peels. They are used to treat acne, fine lines and exfoliate the skin. Any of these peels can safely be used during a facial and typically do not cause the skin to peel.

ZO® 3 Step Stimulation Peel

Provides long lasting results beyond temporary results seen with other peels. Peeling is mild, with minimal downtime. Designed to treat acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, large pores and dullness. Can be repeated every 3-4 weeks if deeper repair is desired.

Deep Strength Chemical Peels

A chemical peel that produces a controlled injury to the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which form the support system for the skin and causes it to slough off or peel, revealing new skin.

ZO® Controlled Depth TCA Peel

Used to medically treat the various skin conditions of acne, wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation disorders and sun damage. Skin will peel for several days to over a week. When the surface skin peels away, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin, which has a smoother texture and more even skin tone. Skin may need to be pretreated with ZO® skin health products before this peel.

25% TCA Peel

The TCA medium strength peel reveals fresh, glowing skin with moderate downtime. It can effectively treat mild to acute acne due in part to its powerful anti-bacterial properties. Fine lines and wrinkles, as well as uneven and blotchy complexions, can all be successfully treated with the TCA 20% peel. You may experience 7-10 days of downtime with this peel including “frosting” of the skin on application, tightness, dryness, peeling of the skin, temporary darkening and possible compromised skin barrier for 3-4 days. This peel can be used on arms, hands, legs, chest and back for sun damage, uneven skin tone and “crepey” skin.

30% TCA Peel

This potent peel’s ability to evenly penetrate beyond the epidermis into the papillary dermis makes it an excellent choice for the treatment of photo damage and acneic conditions associated with “hard to treat” hyperpigmentation and deep acne scars. The TCA deep strength peel can be used to effectively remove otherwise “permanent” skin fixtures such as unwanted freckles, to lessen deep wrinkles and stimulate collagen on a deep level. You will experience temporary “frosting” of the skin before shedding, tightness, dryness, swelling and possible scabbing or compromised skin. This peel has a 7-14 day downtime and can be used on the face or body.
