What you need to know about Microneedling and the ZO 3 Step Peel

Microneedling is a safe, in-office procedure also known as collagen induction therapy. As the 12 tiny needles of the dermapen penetrate the skin, you are rejuvenating your skin by stimulating the body to produce new collagen and elastin. Microneedling is safe to be used on the face as well as the body.

The dermapen is the world’s first microneedling pen. In our office, we use the dermapen to target stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles, surgical scars, burn scars, large pores, and discoloration. The dermapen can also be used for general dermabrasion which improves overall skin tone and reduces fine lines and wrinkles while promoting collagen production for healthy, smooth skin year round.

Details

A minimum of 3 treatments are recommended to achieve the full effect of the treatment. After your first 3 treatments, you will begin to experience the benefits of this minimally invasive procedure. Many patients keep up with their maintenance microneedling treatments every 6 weeks. Microneedling is effective treatment for all ages and skin types.

The ZO Obagi 3-step peel is done in the comfort of our office. We use this peel for patients who aim to target melasma, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, large pores, and dullness. This peel is effective on all ages and skin types. The benefits include a deep exfoliation, skin renewal and stimulation, and more. The 3-step peel is followed by an at-home retinol treatment designed to support dermal and epidermal stimulation. It supports barrier function and improves the skin’s ability to renew itself, provides antioxidant protection, DNA repair and anti-inflammation benefits.

The direct application of the peel utilizes a blend of exfoliants, a 6% concentration of retinol and multi-action agents that stimulate collagen and restore moisture balance. The application of the peel can be easily tailored to every patient based on their tolerance level. This is a dual-action and highly effective peel designed to provide skin renewal and stimulation. In total, the 3-step peel lasts about 30 minutes to 1 hour from start to finish, including prep.

Details

The ZO 3-step peel is patient friendly, meaning it is suitable for any skin type and color. It can be repeated every 3-4 weeks and causes moderate patient downtime. The skin will exfoliate and peel beginning on the second day, and this will last for 5 days. For the best possible results, 2-3 peels are recommended yearly.  Patients who are more advanced into treatment also like to get the Dermapen procedure done 4 weeks prior to or after their peel to maximize skin improvement.
