The ZO Signature Peel is one of the most popular Chemical Peels performed today. Gentle on the skin, the ZO Signature Peel is different from most traditional ‘deep’ peels, and requires little recovery time. It does, however, dramatically rejuvenate the skin by improving texture and tone. The Vitalize Peel will also decrease the appearance of acne and scarring, as well as melasma (dark brown patches on the face).
Comprised of proprietary ingredients, the ZO Signature Peel provides a unique mix of ingredients. Perfect for all skin tones and ethnicities, the ZO Signature Peel is considered safe and extremely effective. Noticeable improvement can be seen in the skin after a single treatment. When used in a series, or with other complimentary treatments, the ZO Signature Peel can provide patients with dramatic results.

Skin Rejuvenation with the ZO Signature Peel:
Taking about 30 minutes in the office, the ZO Signature Peel is quick and effective. No anesthetic or topical numbing is required. Patients will normally experience a mild tingling sensation as each layer is applied, but this is short lived. Once the skin is prepped, the aesthetician will apply the peel, which may be up to three layers, depending on the individual’s skin condition. A final will be applied to neutralize the acids in the ZO Signature Peel. Patients are then able to return to their normal activities.
Recovery from a ZO Signature Peel:
Immediately after a ZO Signature Peel, the skin may be mildly swollen and red, although these will fade quickly. Two to three days after the peel, the skin will begin to lightly peel. This process will continue for the next three to four days; after about a week, the skin should be fully healed.
The ZO Signature Peel requires less downtime than other, more traditional Chemical Peels. Patients are free to return to work or school that same day. Strenuous activities and exercise should be put off for the first 24 hours after treatment.
