ZO 3 Step Chemical Peel

An innovative peel treatment, based on a unique blend of acids and retinol designed to stimulate collagen production, cellular renewal and DNA protection. The peel targets skin laxity, sun damage, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

  • The ZO 3 step peel is a highly effective medium strength peel which treats acne, sun damage, fine lines,  hyperpigmentation, dull skin and large pores.
  • This procedure can be used for the face and body
  • Utilises a blend of exfoliants, 6% concentration of retinol, and multi-action agents to significantly improve skin health and treat many signs of skin ageing.
  • Evens skin texture for softer, smoother, tighter looking skin.


  • This is a doctor led procedure, carried out by Dr Saetta, which takes approximately one hour.
  • Not painful, but patients may describe a stinging sensation which is tolerable.
  •  air cooling mechanisms are used during the procedure in order to ease discomfort.

During the first stage, a blend of acids is used to remove the outer layer of skin (the epidermis). Saponins (a class of chemical compound) minimise skin reactions while glycerine improves skin hydration.

The second stage uses a six-percent retinol crème to stimulate collagen production, trigger cellular renewal, and provide antioxidant benefits.

During the final stage, a special calming crème is used to relieve irritation and redness and restore moisture balance. Your final outcome is skin that looks and feels softer and smoother, and is greatly replenished.

The peel is a synergistic blend of:

  • Salicylic acid – Antibacterial, reducing oil production
  • Lactic acid – Softens and dissolves excess skin layers
  • Trichloroacetic acid – Reduces fine lines, discoloration and improves skin texture.


  • Patients may experience skin peeling two- three days post procedure
  • By day 7 all evidence of peeling should have cleared.
  • Mineral make up can be applied over the week period.
