Dead cells can make the skin appear dull and lacking in radiance, while fine lines can make us appear older and accumulated sun damage can leave even the most pampered complexion looking worn or blemished. Chemical peels can be used to target a number of concerns, including acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dullness, premature ageing, congestion and tired-looking skin for a healthy glow and dermis.
The ZO® 3-Step Peel™ stimulates collagen and restores moisture balance, evening skin texture for a softer, smoother, tighter looking complexion. This treatment is suitable for any skin type and colour and the procedure can be repeated every 3 - 4 weeks, but does involve 5 - 7 days downtime.
With this particular peel, it’s very important to prepare your skin before treatment. ZO® has therefore created a Getting Skin Ready system with high potency retinol to condition the dermis prior to visiting, designed to target melasma, sun damage, wrinkles, uneven tone, texture, large pores and dullness, as well as active acne and scarring. The process itself works in 3 steps follows:
The Perfect Peel is the only peel to showcase glutathione as a founding component and works from the inside out to repair and nourish the skin, giving it a radiant glow, meanwhile refining pores, improving hyperpigmentation, lifting melasma, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating acne and preventing scarring.
Most importantly, glutathione really does ‘defy’ the aging process - because it penetrates deep at a cellular level to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. Glutathione has also been proven to turn dark pigmentations (eumelanin) into lighter pigmentation (phaeomelanin).
The Perfect Peel can be effective in offering an improvement from the first treatment and it is not painful during application, resulting in a slight sting for 30 - 45 seconds.
A complete course of treatments will help to remodel your complexion, maintaining your results with the consistent care and attention.
You can expect to experience skin peeling throughout days 3 - 6 and be completely finished with the peel process by day 7. During your pre-treatment consultation, we will discuss your skin type and complexion concerns and there are more before and after results available across our social media channels.
Results are described by our clients as “astonishing” and you can expect to see…
Enerpeel® Mandelic Acid (MA) utilises a patented carrier technology to transport 40% Mandelic Acid (20% active and 20% inactive) as well as 5% MSM for rosacea and telangiectasia. EnerPeel® MA can also be used for hyperpigmentation and anti-ageing, especially in higher PIH risk clients and can be applied as a summer treatment.
Enerpeel® SA is a skin remodelling solution designed specifically for sufferers of acne, thanks partly due to the sebum reducing effect of Salicylic Acid.
Its scientifically proven solution also contains 2x active ingredients (triethyl citrate and ehtyl linoleate), which can reduce the main visible signs of acne. This mechanism of treatment minimises surface trauma that can cause reddening, frosting and peeling, by maximising natural activity in the skin to promote improved structure and function.
Ultimately Enerpeel® SA aims to correct skin concerns much more effectively than ‘standard’ peels, by triggering the dermis’ remodelling functions and delivering a high dose of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and sebum-slowing ingredients. This is combined with Salicylic Acid to also reduce oil, exfoliate and open up ducts, and can be perfect for controlling the inflammatory phase of papules and pustules. We can additionally use on back and chest to target post-acne damage and oiliness.
EnerPeel® Jessners Revised (JR) utilises 15% Salicylic Acid, 14% Resorcinol and 20% Lactic Acid to penetrate deeper into the skin and target hormonal, age and sun related discolouration. This treatment can also be used for anti-ageing effects, especially in combination with EnerPeel® PA - which reduces fine lines and wrinkles, as well as more superficial acne scarring. Both are gentle but highly effective chemical peels addressing multiple concerns, including oversized pores and pigmentation.
Preparation is key to reducing downtime, whilst maximising results and a pre procedure assessment will be required at our Sheffield-based skincare clinic. A treatment plan will then be provided and personalised to you and what you are wanting to achieve.

After one treatment of The Perfect Peel™, your skin tone and complexion should appear smoother, glowing and fresh. Depending on your skin’s condition, multiple treatments may be necessary for desired results and series of 2-3 treatments once every 4 weeks is advised for more severe skin conditions such as melasma / active acne
As long as the skin is maintained with medical-grade skincare products such as The Perfect C cream we provide, results can be maintained long-term. For example, we recommend 2 - 3 treatments of The Perfect Peel™ per year to sustain a rejuvenated complexion
