What is the ZO 3-Step Peel?

A highly effective treatment for the many signs of skin aging, this peel is ideal for treating Melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores, dull skin and even acne. Suitable for any skin type or color.

How does it work?

  • Step 1 of the system is the application of the peel solution to exfoliate the skin.

  • Step 2 is the application of the Stimulating Retinol Creme that works to stimulate cellular function at a deep level for collagen enhancement, firming, and wrinkle reduction.

  • Step 3 is the application of the Calming Creme that works to minimize inflammation and irritation that may result from the first two steps as well as restore the moisture balance of the skin.

Most peels do a great job of exfoliating the skin; however, Step 2, the Stimulating Retinol Creme (Vitamin A) is key to the great results.

  • Vitamin A is a key vitamin that the skin needs topically.

  • Oral consumption does not address the topical deficiency.

  • Vitamin A improves overall skin health and is one of the most effective OTC ingredients for aging skin

    • Able to go inside the cell to stimulate cellular function at the dermal level

    • Simultaneously repairs damage at the epidermal level
