What is a Zena Algae Peel?

The Zena Algae Peel is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses natural algae spicules to gently exfoliate and stimulate the skin. Unlike traditional chemical peels that rely on acids to remove the outer skin layers, this peel uses a physical method that promotes collagen and elastin production, resulting in rejuvenated and clearer skin.

How does the Zena Algae Peel work?

During the treatment, algae spicules act like tiny needles when massaged into the skin, creating a controlled micro-injury that triggers the body's natural healing process. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins for maintaining youthful and healthy skin.

What are the benefits of the Zena Algae Peel?

Benefits include improved skin texture and tone, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, clearing of acne and reduction of acne scars, diminished hyperpigmentation, and overall rejuvenated appearance. It also offers deep cleansing by unclogging pores.

Is the Zena Algae Peel suitable for all skin types?

The Zena Algae Peel is generally safe for most skin types, including sensitive skin. However, a consultation with a skincare professional is recommended to determine if it is the best treatment option for your specific skin condition and type.

What should I expect during the Zena Algae Peel treatment?

The treatment involves a gentle massage of the algae spicules into the skin. You will feel a 7/10 discomfort from the scratching sensation for 5-10 min. There may be slight redness immediately after and a prickly sensation that will last 48 hours before the peeling process begins.

What is the recovery time for a Zena Algae Peel?

Recovery time is typically 7-10 days in total. Most clients experience mild redness and a prickly sensation for 48 hours after the treatment. The peel process begins on days 2-3 after your treatment and lasts 5-7 days.

How many treatments are recommended to see results?

While some improvements can be seen after a single session, optimal results typically require a series of treatments. We usually recommend 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, depending on your skin's condition and goals.

Are there any side effects associated with the Zena Algae Peel?

Side effects may include temporary redness, sensitivity, slight swelling, and peeling of the skin for 7-10 days. It's important to follow post-treatment care instructions which will be given to you at the end of your treatment to minimize any adverse effects.

How should I care for my skin after the Zena Algae Peel?

Post-treatment care involves gently cleansing the skin morning and night, avoiding moisturizer for 4-5 days which will accelerate the peeling process, avoiding direct sun exposure, and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen. After the first 4-5 days have past you will be allowed to use moisturizing products again. Active ingredients must be avoided until all peeling has fully completed and your skin has healed.
