In clinic ZO facials and peels

ZO is proven in the treatment of anti ageing and acne, rosacea, pigmentation and sensitive skin

Chemical peeling is a proven and effective method for skin rejuvenation. An active solution is applied to the surface of the skin, which causes the superficial layer to peel off. The treatment exposes a new layer of healthy, undamaged skin, resulting in a smoother texture and a more even skin tone.

Medical-strength skin peels will address the following skin concerns: uneven skin pigmentation, brown spots, age spots, melasma, rough or uneven skin texture, sun damage, acne, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, rosacea, superficial blood vessel damage and pre-cancerous growths. The strength of the peel solution affects the depth of the treatment and the degree of exfoliation.


At SO Aesthetics we offer 3 different types of ZO skin peels and facials, ranging from mild to medical strength:


ZO Medical Stimulator Peel

The Radiance Peel contains a blend of salicylic, lactic and glycolic acids and provides a superficial exfoliation. It is suitable for patients of any skin type or colour seeking to improve overall skin tone, texture and complexion – with little or no downtime. We can further tailor these peels with specific add ons to target areas of concern at no extra cost. 

The perfect ‘red carpet’ peel which can be done in your lunchtime or commit to one a month to achieve lasting results. 

ZO Skin Brightening Facial

This skin brightening facial is based on carefully selected active ingredients with brightening properties. This facial makes use of ZO’s skin brightening mask in conjunction with growth factors to illuminate and even out the skin tone. This is the perfect facial treatment for addressing the signs of photo-ageing including pigmentation and enlarged pores. Citric, salicylic and lactic acids increase skin brightness and clarity and reduce pore size.

ZO 3 Step Stimulation Peel

The ZO 3 Step Stimulation Peel is a medical-strength peel that combines 10% TCA (trichloroacetic acid), salicylic acid, lactic acid and high-dose retinol (6%). It is indicated for patients of any skin type and colour, who require a more potent skin peel (medium strength).


You may experience some mild to moderate peeling for approximately 3-7 days. This peel may be repeated 3-4 times annually or as required.

Both men and women benefit medically and aesthetically from chemical peels. A peel can be used as a single treatment or may be repeated annually (or as often as required) as part of a personalised skin restoration and optimisation programme. Our ZO specialist will advise of the appropriate treatment during consultation. And also advise on before and after care required
