Why should you choose ZO medical-grade

Why should you choose ZO medical-grade products over other skincare brands?

ZO isn’t just simply a skincare brand carrying the same empty promises that are thrown around from Oil of Olay to anything you can buy at Sephora. Even the better spa brands and clinical brands available from a dermatologist or other medical spas may not be offering the level of change and overall skin health that you ultimately want or need. ZO skin health products actually have the correct medical-grade ingredients to create a dramatic change in acne, hyperpigmentation, uneven texture, uneven skin tone, and, of course, the signs of aging!

ZO targets the skin at its natural pH which is more acidic than most product lines dare to go. Because it’s medical grade, we monitor your results and progress due to the lower pH and strength of the product ingredients in the line. We create custom skin health programs for you that we work through together because skincare is LONG TERM. We want your results to be long term as well! Being on a consistent program is what generates overall skin health, which in turn provides the skin’s natural barrier, the moisture and anti-aging benefits it’s supposed to be producing on its own! This also means once you start your program, you immediately start to feel and see a difference in your skin’s appearance and overall texture and tone.

Here is a list of After Glow aesthetics & wellness top 5 ZO products to jump-start your skin health:

It works to balance and repair the skin’s barrier function, repairs damaged DNA in the skin cells, replenishes lost moisture in the skin, and provides incredible amounts of vitamins A, C, and E along with potent and effective antioxidants to keep skin functioning at its healthiest!

5- SPF + Primer-

Last, but not least, to finish off our top 5 starters, is an SPF product. Not just any SPF, but a medical-grade physical block that ultimately protects you from ALL sun spectrums. ZO Skin Health SPF products contain the highest amount of metallic components which provide a reflective barrier to sun and light exposure vs. an opposing brand’s chemical SPF that is more damaging to the skin. Our top seller is the ZO SPF + Primer because it feels silky smooth, provides a small amount of coverage, lasts all day long, and blends well.

Are you looking for a good exfoliation to help

Are you looking for a good exfoliation to help brighten and even out your skin tone? At After Glow aesthetics & wellness we offer 3 effective levels of medical-grade chemical peels to help with exfoliation, specific to your skin needs!



What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical Peels are a method of exfoliation ranging from mild, that work in the upper layers of the epidermis, to deeper peels, that penetrate the deeper layers of the epidermis and upper dermal tissue. Peel levels are selected based on your overall skin health and desired goal! Peels can be used to enhance and increase overall treatment results to target the following conditions: Sun damage, rough/uneven texture, fine lines, wrinkles, tissue laxity, acne, congestion in the skin, hyperpigmentation, dullness, dryness, and certain types of scarring.


What is a Chemical Peel Treatment Like?

We prep your skin by using products to cleanse and degrease, getting rid of any make-up and oils on the skin, this allows for even penetration of the chemical peel. We start with one layer of the chemical peel and possibly more depending on how aggressive your aesthetician thinks is needed.

How Long Does a Chemical Peel Treatment Take?

  • The process usually takes 30-45 minutes but can be adjusted depending on your needs. There is no pain or discomfort, and the treatment is safe.

What Can I Expect Post-treatment?

  • Your provider will decide which level of chemical peel is best suited for your skin. Depending on the level of chemical peel you may experience no peeling or moderate peeling of the skin. Once your skin is done going through the peeling process, it will look bright and refreshed!

How Often Should I Get a Chemical Peel?

  • We recommend a series of 3-6 chemical peels for optimum results. With allowing 4 weeks in between each treatment.

What Do I Need to Prepare for a Chemical Peel Treatment?

  • No sun exposure one week before treatment
  • Stop using retinoids one week prior to treatment
  • After Glow aesthetics & wellness uses Vitality Institute VI Peels that are safe for all skin types.

Botox and Dysport are medications injected into the muscle to reduce wrinkles caused by muscle movement. We strategically choose dosage based on your muscle mass and strength in the area of concern.

A critical mistake that some patients make is neglecting the maintenance of their treatment. Botox and Dysport may metabolize at different rates depending on the person, but typically the treated area should be re-injected after about 3-4 months.

If you keep-up on your Botox/Dysport, the dosage can be fine-tuned to your exact prescribed needs. This can not only prevent over or under-treating the area, but saves you money and time in the long run.

When you come in to see us, make sure to book your next appointment with us! Most Botox/Dysport procedures take only 10 – 15 minutes, allowing you to return to your daily activities in a flash! Our staff is highly trained to offer you quality service and results while keeping your health and safety the top priority.

Our providers at After Glow aesthetics & wellness are all extremely skilled and precise when it comes to your Botox/Dysport treatment.
