Chemical peels provide a “controlled” chemical exfoliation of the skin. This process improves the condition of the skin by increasing cell turnover, purging damaged skin cells, and revealing younger more youthful skin. This treatment may improve brown spots caused by age or sun damage, uneven skin pigmentation, melasma, fine lines, acne and inflammation caused by acne, and pore size. There are various peels which may be applied to the skin depending on the level of correction needed by the patient as well as the “down time” which is acceptable for the patient. Several options are available in our office.
ZO 3STEP Peel
A deeper peel than the Skin Ceuticals options, this peel provides a deeper stimulation of the skin using TCA, Salicylic and Lactic acids to remove the outmost layers of the skin. 6% Retinol is then applied over the peel to provide a deeper stimulation of the skin. This peel targets pigmentation due to melasma, sun damage, post acneic inflammation, fine lines, wrinkles, and large pores. Patients can expect 5-7 days of mild to moderate peeling and redness.
ZO Signature Peels
Light spa peels which will improve the skin clarity and texture, brighten the skin, and provide a glow. Patient will experience little to no peeling or downtime.
