Our practice focuses on providing you with the best possible treatment and all the attention you deserve through your aesthetic journey. So, it should come as no surprise that we are only interested in offering best-in-class treatments to our patients. ZO chemical peels are, without a doubt, some of the best-in-class medical-grade peels that you could undergo.

They can tackle a range of textural and tonal skin concerns and provide results that our patients are often enamoured with while requiring very little from our patients in terms of discomfort or downtime. For many of our patients, ZO chemical peels have been exactly what they needed.

Our Philosophy

The Centre for Medical Aesthetics operates on one paramount tenet: your aesthetic journey is as important as any other medical venture you embark on. Your concerns aren’t “just cosmetic.” Aesthetic care is still care, and we promise to treat them with equal gravitas.

Why Might Someone Consider ZO Chemical Peel?

We are able to achieve great results for our patients through the ZO chemical peel. Anyone who is considering addressing any of the following conditions might want to consider the treatment:

  • Dry or flakey skin
  • Dull skin
  • Acne
  • Oily skin
  • Discolouration

While these are the general categories of skin concerns that patients address, it is possible that other concerns could be addressed as well. The best way to find out if this is a good option is to schedule a consultation with the TCMA team.

Is ZO Chemical Peel Right for Me?


  • Do you have textural or tonal skin concerns?
  • Have you had poor reactions to topical treatments like chemical peels?
  • Do you have realistic expectations about what the treatment can achieve?
  • Have you looked thoroughly at before and after photos?
  • Have you done your own research into the procedure?

If you are dealing with any of the conditions we listed above, chemical peels could be useful. But, it is important to tell us during your consultation if you have ever had negative reactions to topical treatments like chemical peels. Your safety is the most important consideration; we don’t want to risk your health.

It is also paramount that you have realistic expectations about what this treatment can achieve. If you look at plenty of before and after images and do thorough amounts of research about the treatment, you will get a clear idea of the kind of meaningful change that can be achieved with ZO chemical peels.

Understanding the ZO Chemical Peel Process

At our practice, our first and foremost goal is to make sure you feel comfortable and confident about the decision to have a treatment performed. We won’t encourage you to have anything done that you aren’t ready for or undergo any procedure that we don’t think will ultimately get you closer to your ideal results.

A Consultation with The Centre for Medical Aesthetics


  • Your consultation is your most valuable resource throughout the entire process.
  • Our goal is never to convince you to have a treatment performed.
  • We are in your corner even if you don’t sign up for any of our treatments.

We first tell our potential patients that they should be fully prepared for their consultation. Keep a thorough list of all your questions and concerns — store them on a note in your phone or in a physical notebook that you can bring with you. 

We are prepared to spend as much time as you need on your consultation, so it is the easiest way to get answers to everything you could not figure out on your own. Always make the most of it; being informed about your treatment is the most important priority.

You should also know that our goal is never going to be to simply sell or convince you to have a treatment performed. We will only recommend ZO chemical peel — or any treatment — if we believe it could realistically achieve your goals.

If it can’t, we will offer up some alternatives, some of which might even not include a procedure from our practice, and we are okay with that. We want to be your partner through the process, and if you can achieve your goals with an over-the-counter option, we will tell you and continue to be here for you the next time you decide to consider an aesthetic treatment.

How to Prepare for Your ZO Chemical Peel

You will not need to worry too much about preparing for your ZO chemical peel treatment. Come in with a clean, makeup-free face and you will be ready to start your treatment. We do always recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure and other abrasive topical treatments leading up to your peel just to avoid unnecessary discomfort during the procedure.

The ZO Chemical Peel Process


  • Your face will be cleansed before the treatment to help prevent infections and breakouts.
  • The peel formulation will be applied to the skin and left for the appropriate amount of time.
  • You will be able to choose from one of our six ZO peel options, based on your goals.
  • The entire treatment will usually take between 30 and 50 minutes to complete.

In order to avoid the chance of infection or breakouts from developing, we will make sure to thoroughly cleanse your skin prior to the procedure being performed. Once that is complete, the peel solution will be applied to your skin. There are six primary ZO chemical peel options that we offer, depending on your unique needs and aesthetic goals:

Stimulator Lunchtime Peel

Ultrahydration Protocol

Skin Brightening Protocol

Acne and Oil Control Protocol

Redness and Sensitivity Protocol

Customized Peel Protocol

30 minutes

50 minutes

50 minutes

50 minutes

50 minutes

50 minutes

Designed to address minor textural or tonal concerns in a short period of time.

Designed to focus on rehydrating the skin and combating the subsequent skin concerns that follow.

Designed to remove dead layers of skin and debris, revealing healthier underlying layers.

Designed to remove the underlying cause of acne breakouts, like dirt and debris.

Designed to address discolouration that derives from general acne and other causes like rosacea.

Designed specifically to treat multiple skin concerns that you are uniquely experiencing.  We also now have a TCA peel available.

After the time has elapsed, the peel will be removed, and the treatment is considered complete. We will help you make sure your face is clean of the treatment solution. The entire process will take between 30 to 50 minutes, depending on the level of correction being made and which peel you are having performed.

ZO Chemical Peel Results

After the treatment is complete, your face will begin to peel for a few days. As the peeling clears up, you should be able to notice some immediate improvement in whatever condition you are looking to address. However, the final results won’t come until about 25 to 30 days after the peel was performed. Typically, results last for a month or two, at which point, you will need to have additional maintenance procedures performed to achieve optimal results.

You Can Trust Us

Finding someone to trust with your chemical peel and aesthetic journey is a tall order that can be incredibly nerve-wracking. We want you to know that we are dedicated to earning and deserving your trust every step of the way.

Let’s Talk: Frequently Asked Questions

What Risks Are Associated with ZO Chemical Peel?

Following a ZO chemical peel, it’s normal for patients to experience varying degrees of redness, stinging, itching, mild swelling, and skin flaking or peeling. These signs reflect the skin’s natural response to the treatment and typically subside as the skin heals. 

However, there are additional risks associated with chemical peels, including infections, delayed healing, textural changes in the skin, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, and distinct lines of demarcation where the peel was applied. These complications highlight why partnering with someone highly qualified like TCMA for your chemical peel procedure is important.

Are There Any Post-Treatment Instructions to Follow?

If there are any specific instructions for your unique case, our office will make sure to make you aware of them well before the treatment day. Generally, though, instructions are fairly straightforward: avoid abrasive skin treatments until fully healed, and do your best to wear a high SPF sunscreen to avoid sun damage to the newly surfaced skin — it will be much more susceptible to sunburns and UV damage.
