What Is a Chemical Peel?
During a chemical peel, we apply a chemical solution to your skin. The solution causes injury to the layers of the skin, leading them to peel off and reveal new youthful skin layers. The new skin is brighter, softer, and smoother.
Levels of Chemical Peels
The chemical peel procedure is done in one of three depths, including:
Light Chemical Peel – A superficial light chemical peel only removes the outer layer of your skin. A light chemical peel addresses fine lines, acne, dryness, and uneven skin tone.
Medium Chemical Peel – A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin and the top outer layer of skin. A medium chemical peel addresses uneven skin tone, texture and wrinkles.
Deep Chemical Peel – A deep chemical peel removes skin cells at the deepest possible levels. A deep chemical peel addresses wrinkles, texture, uneven pigmentation and precancerous growths.
What Conditions Does a Chemical Peel Treat?
Chemical peels treat many skin issues, including:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin coloring

ZO 3-Step Peel – The ZO 3-Step peel is an excellent treatment for skin aging, Melasma, fine lines, large pores, acne, sun damage, uneven texture, and dull skin. The first step is to exfoliate your skin by applying the peel. The Stimulating Retinol Creme is applied during the second step to stimulate your cellular function, enhance collagen at a deeper level, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and firm your skin. The Calming Creme is applied during the third step to minimize irritation and inflammation and restore moisture.
ZO Stimulator Peel – The ZO Stimulator Peel is the perfect “lunchtime” peel with no downtime. This peel is made up of a combination of lactic, citric, and salicylic acid plus potent concentrations of other active ingredients to exfoliate the skin while stimulating collagen and elastin growth.

The most important things to remember when preparing your skin for a chemical peel include:
- Avoid direct sun exposure for two weeks
- Don’t use any retinoid products one week prior to the peel
- Chemical treatment areas must be free of lesions and sores
- Apply any topical products as instructed to prepare the skin
Chemical Peel Aftercare
Your chemical peel aftercare depends on the type of peel, including:
Light Chemical Peel – Expect your skin to feel like a sunburn reaction. You should notice redness and scaling that lasts up to seven days. It’s important to apply lotion on skin as directed by your provider. Apply sunscreen daily. You can wear make-up immediately after treatment.
Medium Chemical Peel – Expect stinging, redness, swelling, and flaking of the skin. The skin may crust and shed for up to 10 days. Don’t expose your skin to sunlight, and take your antiviral medication for up to 14 days. You can apply make-up after three to five days.
