Retinoic Acid is very closely related to Vitamin A, and is widely used in medicine to regulate cell growth. It is a slightly deeper peel than Beta peels, but has the added benefit of really boosting new tissue growth and is often used in conjunction with Beta Peels.
What to expect:
Retinol 0.3 Serum is a professional product which is applied by your therapist to enhance the effect of the Lamelle peels.
Applied post peel for a period of 8 hours, Retinol 0.3 Serum results in a deeper stimulation and speeds up cell turnover.
This peel contains 3 different acids to exfoliate your skin and promote cell turnover; with 10% Salicylic Acid, 10% Lactic Acid and 10% Citric Acid.
These are known as AHA or Alpha Hydroxy acids – they dissolve dead skin cells and give a great exfoliation to the upper layers of the skin. The salicylic acid works on oily, acne prone skin, and the citric acid gives the skin a healthy glow.
ZO Medical 3-Step Stimulation Peel is now available at our clinic. It is touted as a highly effective treatment for many of the signs of skin aging, including melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores and dullness, and also for acne. The 3-Step Stimulation Peel is a professional peel and must be performed by a licensed skincare professional.
Step 1 of the system’s three steps is the peel itself, which is formulated to remove the outermost layer of skin. Composed of salicylic acid (17%), trichloracetic acid (10%) and lactic acid (5%), the peel also contains saponins to minimize inflammation and glycerin for hydration.
Step 2 is application of the Stimulating 6% Retinol Creme. Applied after the peel solution, the cream works to stimulate cellular function at a deep skin level. The results include connective tissue enhancement as well as firming and wrinkle reduction.
Step 3 refers to the application of the Calming Crème Post Procedure Skin Relief. This cream works to minimize inflammation and irritation that may result from the first two steps, as well as restore the moisture balance of the skin. You can take the cream home to apply twice daily following the in-office treatment to speed the healing process.
“The most unique thing about the new 3-Step Stimulation Peel is that post treatment peeling is very mild or even unnoticeable in many cases, as most of the dead cells are removed by the twice daily washing following the peel. There is minimal or no downtime with this peel, and your skin will look healthier very quickly,” said Dr. Obagi.
The ZO 3-Step Stimulation Peel can be repeated every 3 to 4 weeks, or as needed. It is quickly becoming a most requested skin rejuvenation treatment.
