ZO® 3-Step Peel

Many over-the-counter treatments claim to offer great anti-aging results, but sadly few actually deliver. Finding the best cosmetic treatments for your skin can be a big problem unless you know who to turn to. At SF Bay Area Plastic Surgery, we provide not only surgical solutions, but expert skincare options to help you reduce aging signs and restore your youthful glow. If you are struggling with fine lines, sun damage, melasma, acne, and hyperpigmentation, our ZO® 3-Step Peel might be just what you’re looking for.

Our ZO® 3-Step Peel combines a powerful blend of exfoliants, retinol, and multi-action agents to help improve your skin health and treat a range of aging signs. This option features both an in-office peel and an at-home treatment regimen to help you get the most out of our services. If you’re ready to experience the power of ZO®, we welcome you to schedule your appointment in Mountain View, California today.

How ZO® 3-Step Peel Works

As the name implies, the ZO® 3-Step Peel features a three-step process that involves exfoliation, nourishment, and rejuvenation. When you arrive at our center, we will begin by applying a blend of salicylic, trichloracetic, and lactic acid to remove the outer layer of your skin. This blend will also include saponin compounds to minimize skin reactions and glycerin to promote hydration. The next step will involves the application of a cream that features a combination of 6% retinol and high performing ingredients. This will maximize collagen stimulation, promote cellular renewal, and provide you with antioxidant benefits. Finally, we will provide you with a post-procedure foundation serum to ease irritation and redness while rebalancing your skin’s moisture content.

Candidates for ZO®

If you are experiencing aging signs such as wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation due to sun damage, this may be the treatment for you. This procedure is also effective for easing signs of acne and scarring. If you have sensitive skin, be sure to let us know and we will perform a thorough evaluation before recommending a treatment approach suited for your skin.

The SF Bay Area Plastic Surgery Difference

At SF Bay Area Plastic Surgery, we treat our patients on an individual level. No two skin types are the same, therefore, we offer customized treatment plans tailored to your specific goals. When you arrive for your appointment at our Mountain View center, we will take the time to evaluate your skin and determine if the ZO® 3-Step Peel is right for you. Several sessions may be required to give you the results you want, but we will be with you every step of the way throughout the process.

The 3-Step Peel Experience

The application of this peel will be tailored to you and should take less than an hour to perform in most cases. You will be asked to lie down in a comfortable chair while we apply the peel. As the solution goes to work, you may feel some tingling on your face, but most people describe the experience as tolerable. You may experience some mild side effects after your visit, but these typically ease after a couple of hours.
