Our Custom ZO® Peels
ZO® Retinol Stimulation peel™
Exfoliate your skin with our professional-grade ZO® Retinol Stimulation Peel™, which can be performed at home. With 1% retinol to penetrate into the layers of your skin, this peel is great for sun damage, texture, wrinkles, and fine lines. The ZO® Retinol Stimulation Peel™ is not as abrasive as our more aggressive peels, but it will give you visible skin improvements, a softer texture, and tighter skin. This peel can be purchased and added to your at-home skin care routine.
ZO® 3-Step Peel™
With 6% retinol and anti-inflammatory agents, you will reap the benefits of the ZO® 3-Step Peel's anti-aging properties. This is an exfoliator for all skin types, which will repair your skin that has been damaged from scarring, pigmentation issues, age spots, and more because of its deep penetration into your epidermis and upper dermis. This peel is only offered in our office and administered by our physicians or nurse practitioner. The ZO® 3-Step Peel™ is longer lasting and will stimulate your skin's ability to repair and renew itself. You will need to take some time off from your home skin care program for your skin to heal. Once the peeling process is complete, you will have a new, healthy layer of skin, see fewer wrinkles and even color, and have incredibly caress-worthy skin.
ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™
Known for its blue-base tint, the ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™ has recently been reformulated to maximize your skin's potential to feel smoother and tighter. The ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™ is a robust, in-office dermal peel using a customized dosage of trichloracetic acid (TCA) with multi-action components for intense exfoliation and skin renewal. It is used to medically treat various skin conditions including skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and removal of pigmentation issues such as melasma. This peel will take more than a week to heal. You will see an improvement in:
- Acne scars
- Facial scars from injury
- Pore size
- Skin firmness
- Balanced skin tone
- Hydration in the skin
- Fine lines
- Fewer dark spots, sun spots, freckles, brown patches, and more
Controlled Depth Peel™ + Laser
If you want the best of both peels and laser treatments to rejuvenate your skin, schedule a consultation for a ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™ + Laser treatment. The peel will exfoliate and tighten your skin and the CO2 Fraxel Laser will improve scars, wrinkles, mild laxity in the skin, rough texture, and more. This is an in-office treatment only and is appropriate for all skin types. We may also discuss how sensitive your skin may feel during the treatment, and how we can make the laser session comfortable for you.

What To Expect
Each peel has its own distinctive properties to help your identified skin issues. No matter which in-office peel is selected for your skin, our competent team will do what it takes to deliver a positive, relaxing experience. Our highly skilled staff will have you reclining in one of our treatment rooms with a fresh robe and head wrap to protect your hair from the treatment. Each peel will have a different sensation on your skin during the process and our staff member will explain what you can expect every step of the way. With some of our more aggressive treatments (such as the ZO® 3-Step Peel™ or the ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™), it is important to keep in mind that we will discuss the best way to keep you comfortable and without pain, if necessary. After our signature ZO® products are massaged into your skin and your treatment has concluded, we will provide you with an area to dress and refresh yourself at your own pace.
After your ZO® Peel, you may experience some downtime. Depending on the intensity of your peel, you may have flaky, peeling skin. This may make you feel uncomfortable to be seen in your social circles. Not to worry, this reaction is normal and in a short time, your skin will shed the old layer to help you look younger, radiant, and ready to take on your normal routine.
