ZO® Skin Health Chemical Peels

ZO® Skin Health Chemical Peels

If you miss the glow, smoothness, and evenness of your youthful skin, you have probably tried many at-home products to bring it back. The results are usually disappointing. We in Tarzana and Hidden Hills love enjoying the California sun, but it can be hard on our skin, leading to premature signs of aging. To slow the aging of your skin, you might benefit from a professional approach.

One powerful approach to maintaining and restoring youthful skin is ZO® Skin Health chemical peels. At The Med Spot in Woodland Hills, Dr. Michelle Reyes uses this and other approaches to help her patients enjoy long-lasting rejuvenation, including more glowing skin, fewer wrinkles, and a more even complexion. Since 1997, Dr. Michelle Reyes has been helping people live better lives in the Calabasas area, and she can help you find the skin rejuvenation solution ideally suited to you.

What a Chemical Peel Can Do for You

Chemical peels can be a powerful approach to maintaining or restoring the youthful appearance of your skin. With a chemical peel, you can:

  • Increase the glow of your skin
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin elasticity
  • Heal sun-damaged skin
  • Reduce the appearance of sun or age spots
  • Strengthen the skin against future damage
  • Clean and exfoliate the skin
  • Hydrate and soften dry skin
  • Balance skin pH
  • Calm irritated and inflamed skin

One of the most common complaints people have about their skin is that it just doesn’t have the luminous and refreshed appearance it used to have. This glow didn’t just help them look younger, it helped them feel younger. A chemical peel can significantly restore this lost glow.

Another concern is the first appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These occur because the skin loses its elasticity and starts to crease with common facial expressions like smiling, laughing, or even anger. A chemical peel can restore your skin’s elasticity to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduce the appearance of new wrinkles in the future.

Sun damage contributes to dull, sagging skin. A chemical peel can remove the damaged outer layers of skin and heal the under layers. This gives the skin glow and elasticity. It helps reduce the appearance of sun or age spots while providing vital nutrients that can help your skin deal with future sun exposure.

A chemical peel cleans your skin, exfoliates it so that you have open pores that can remain small, and provides balance to your skin’s pH. Healthier skin that results from chemical peel protocols will maintain hydration and help soften dry skin.

How a Chemical Peel Works

A chemical peel cleans and nourishes your skin.

Part of the reason why our skin looks older is that it is older. When we’re young, our skin turns over rapidly, but as we age, the process slows down. This gives more time for the skin to accumulate dirt and get damaged by sun and environmental exposure. The cleaning process removes the accumulation of toxins and stimulates a faster turnaround of your skin.

The cleansing portion of a chemical peel typically takes several steps that progress in intensity. It first removes surface dirt and oils. Then it progresses to removing blockage and deposits in your pores. Finally, a peel removes dead and damaged skin cells to reveal the fresh, vibrant skin with the youthful character you’re looking for.

In the nourishing portion, a chemical peel provides your skin with moisture and essential nutrients that help it stay healthy. This protects your skin and helps it maintain its youthful character for longer. In addition, the nourishing portion includes calming compounds that reduce irritation and inflammation, so your skin will look fresh, clean, and healthy immediately after the peel and for a long time to come.

ZO® Skin Health Chemical Peel Options

At The Med Spot in Woodland Hills, we offer many different ZO®  Skin Health chemical peels. Two of our most popular are:

Stimulator Peel AKA “Red Carpet Peel”

This is a great peel for people looking to see significant improvement in their skin without extensive time investment or downtime. The Stimulator Peel is also known as the Red Carpet Peel because it’s very popular among celebrities who want to make sure their skin looks its best for pictures under the intense lights on the red carpet.

This peel will give a noticeable improvement in wrinkles, skin tone, skin evenness, and sun damage after a series of treatments. Maximum improvement requires a short course of peels spaced out over several weeks, with the last about a week before your major event.

It’s easy to fit this peel in a busy schedule: come in for treatment at lunchtime, and never miss a beat.

Three-Step Peel®

This no-nonsense peel combines in-office and at-home treatment. The in-office peel provides intense cleansing and exfoliation regimen followed by a calming treatment to minimize irritation and redness. Then you follow up at home with cremes that give your skin the hydration and nutrients it needs to maximize the benefits of the peel.

ZO® Skin Health Proven Results

ZO® is the ultimate creation of Dr. Zein Obagi, a world-recognized leader in skincare innovation. Part of what sets ZO® apart is that their claims aren’t empty words. They develop their products scientifically, and that means finding evidence that the products achieve the effects they claim.

Some of the proven claims with ZO® products include:

Firming and Elasticity

With the ZO® firming serum, people can achieve a significant improvement in skin elasticity. Clinical studies show that people can see an 88% improvement in elasticity and a 97% improvement in firmness by week 12 of use. This combines to reduce sagging by 93% over this period.


With ZO® hydrating cream, people can experience significant improvement in the hydration and texture of the skin in 4-8 weeks of use. Within 4 weeks, 89% of patients show significant improvement in skin hydration. This resulted in improvement in texture and smoothness for 100% of patients after 8 weeks of use. Along with this, 70% saw a reduction in redness, and 82% reported reduced itching after 8 weeks.

Wrinkles and Texture Repair

The ZO® Wrinkle + Texture Repair targets the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving the skin’s ability to retain hydration. After 12 weeks, 95% of users showed improvement in skin function. As a result, 98% saw improvement in crow’s feet and facial lines over the period. And 93% showed improvement in skin texture.

Why Get a Professional Peel

If you are considering a facial peel, you might be tempted by at-home peel products. It seems like a good bargain, but often a professional peel is your best choice. With a professional peel, you get:

  • Professional insight
  • Targeted treatment
  • Professional-strength compounds
  • Quality and efficacy of ingredients

A professional skin peel comes with the insight of a trained medical professional. This combines both their professional training and their extensive experience in getting great results. With this insight, they can select the best treatment for your skin, including the insight to help you avoid negative side effects.

The skincare compounds you buy at the store are formulated to appeal to the broadest selection of people. They need to sell a lot to make a profit, so they try to be many things to many people. Unfortunately, that means they might not be what you need for your skin. However, a health care professional can select the best medical-grade products specifically for you. Medical-grade skincare products sold by The Med Spot have proven efficacy and are handpicked.

Finally, commercial products you buy at the store have to be weakened to minimize risks. Strong treatments can lead to injuries if used improperly, so they cannot be sold to people who might not know how to use them. Unfortunately, this also means they often don’t work as well. But a professional can use these stronger chemicals safely to help you maximize your results. A health care professional knows how to avoid reactions in even the most sensitive skin.
