ZO 3 Step Peel

What Is ZO 3 Step Peel?

A highly effective treatment for the many signs of skin aging, this peel is ideal for treating Melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores, dull skin, and even acne! Suitable for any skin type or color. We recommends pre-conditioning your skin with retinol for 4-6 weeks prior to the application of the peel to improve skin health as well as accelerate post-peel healing. Peeling usually is complete by day 7. This is a stronger peel than our VI peel.


This multi-functional peel provides longer lasting benefits and usage studies show that posttreatment peeling is mild to moderate and any discomfort is mitigated by the ZO® Medical Calming Crème sent home with the patient. Further, the 3-Step Stimulation Peel corresponds with Dr. Obagi’s new skincare philosophy emphasizing skin health.

Step 1:

The system is the application of the peel solution to exfoliate the skin.

Step 2:

The application of the Stimulating Retinol Creme that works to stimulate cellular function at a deep level for collagen enhancement, firming, and wrinkle reduction.

Step 3:

The application of the Calming Creme that works to minimize inflammation and irritation that may result from the first two steps as well as restore the moisture balance of the skin.
