Now that we’re officially at the tail end of the season, it’s time to swap out your summer tan lines and poolside hangouts for pumpkin spice and cozy nights. Still, the transformation isn’t complete without a little bit of self-care.
Reverse the damage from the summer sun with one of our favorite treatments: The ZO 3 Step Peel. Here’s what you need to know:
First thing’s first — this treatment requires some preparation. Prior to your appointment, you’ll need to start a ZO program specific to your skin type 4-6 weeks in advance. Don’t worry, Dr. Obagi knows what he’s doing: Think of this part like getting your hair and nails done before a vacation aka the prep before the pamper.
Once you’ve had your consultation and have followed your prep protocol, it’s time to get down to business.
Step 1: Peel Solution
Utilizing ingredients such as salicylic acid, trichloracetic acid, and lactic acid, the unique solution removes the outer layer of the epidermis. Simply put, it’s a very deep exfoliation you can’t get at home.
Additionally, this first step incorporates both glycerin to help with hydration and chemical compounds to minimize unwanted skin reactions.
Step 2: 6% Retinol
Don’t try this at home! Following the peel solution, we’ll apply a concentrated cream with 6% retinol combined with other high performing ingredients to maximize collagen stimulation, cellular renewal, and antioxidant benefits. Think of it as a rebirth for your skin.
Step 3: Calming Cream
Chemicals can be harsh — but they’re worth the result. In the final step, we’ll quell skin irritation and redness with a post-procedure cream that also re-balances vital moisture content and improves the skin’s barrier.
The result? A fabulous new you! Following the facial, your skin may be dry and irritated for a few days — so plan accordingly. However, we promise it’ll be worth your glow.
In addition to treating sun damage, this innovative peel also improves acne, melasma, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores, and dullness. Three simple steps, but with some serious results.
During the month of September, we’ll be performing the ZO 3 Step Peel for only $750. Don’t wait for the tan to dull before booking. Give us a call to book your consultation: (781) 826-5400. We can’t wait to hear all about your summer!
