Laser and peel season coming to an end

Featured Image

As Texas starts to experience warmer weather this spring, ZO Skin Centre Dallas and patients are preparing for less aggressive, yet preventative treatments to help with skin concerns with minimal to zero, easy down time. 

As summer approaches, treatments such as laser hair reduction, IPL (intense pulse light), Clear + Brilliant and chemical peels like the ZO 3-step peel require less sun exposure, less heat and extra care post-treatment. 

Why winter is the best season for laser and peels 

Cooler weather and less direct sun exposure is best for pre and post- laser and chemical peel treatments. The main reason is because your skin needs to be at its healthiest state, especially for treatments that cause acute inflammation, such as Clear + Brilliant and laser hair reduction. 

Burned or sensitized skin is a direct contraindication from all laser treatments and chemical peels.

Alternatives you can do during the warmer months

Stim. Peel

Stimulator peels 

Strength level: Mild 

Stimulator peels are a great alternative to ZO's 3-step peel. 

ZO 3-step peels are an amazing resurfacing treatment for acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and deep fine lines and wrinkles. While ZO 3-step peels are more aggressive, require pre-conditioning and the down time includes peeling and shedding, doing a series of Stimulator Peels help with similar skin concerns over a span of time. 

Stimulator peel benefits:

+ Brightening 

+ Deep exfoliating 

+ Calms redness with antioxidants and anti-irritants 

+ Clears up congestion and minor breakouts

Key Ingredients: 

+ Glycolic acid 

+ Lactic acid

+ Citric acid 

Enzymatic Peel 

Strength level: Light with no peeling

ZO Skin Health's Enzymatic Peel is a mild at-home treatment for all ages and lifestyles. It is a gentle, yet deeply exfoliating and nourishing treatment that is safe for all skin types and suitable for all seasons.

Daily Power Defense and Rozatrol 

IPL (intense pulse light) uses controlled light in specific wavelengths to alleviate inflammation, redness, lesions and uneven skin tones caused by rosacea. While IPL offers a gentle, long-lasting solution for patients experiencing rosacea and sun damage, IPL is not a preferred treatment to do during the summer.

For those who experience oily skin and redness during the warmer months, ZO Skin Health's Rozatrol and Daily Power Defense are the best duo to not only maintain a healthy skin barrier, but help control oil production and neutralize redness.
