ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel and it works wonders in minutes. It’s a quick and easy treatment that can be done in your lunch hour to miraculously smooth away fine to moderate lines and wrinkles, acne, age spots, uneven pigmentation and rough skin texture.

The Ossential Stimulator Peel is designed to exfoliate the skin by stimulating cellular turnover to improve skin tone, texture and clarity. And the best part is that there is no downtime, peeling or redness afterwards; just glowing, healthy skin.

This peel is affectionately known as the “Red Carpet Peel” owing to the number of celebrities that avail of it before they have to look picture perfect for red carpet events, and can’t afford to hide away with the redness of flaking that some strong peels cause.

Ossential is gentle on the skin but strong enough to make a visible difference, brightening and refreshing the face for a youthful, dewy look.

This peel contains 3 different acids to exfoliate your skin and promote cell turnover; with 10% Salicylic Acid, 10% Lactic Acid and 10% Citric Acid. These are known as AHA or Alpha Hydroxy acids – they dissolve dead skin cells and give a great exfoliation to the upper layers of the skin. The salicylic acid works on oily, acne prone skin, and the citric acid gives the skin a healthy glow.

Just one peel will see results, but maximum benefits can be achieved with a series of three to four peels carried out at two week intervals.

ZO Stimulator Peel Can:

  • Soften and rejuvenate sun damaged skin
  • Increase skin tolerance
  • Improve the appearance of age spots or freckles
  • Help with the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulate the production of collagen
  • Exfoliate the skin

The timing of the peel is important, as fresher skin becomes more evident in several days. Please call LUX AESTHETIC MEDICAL SPA to book yours in plenty of time for the next important event.

What is the ZO 3-Step Peel?

A highly effective treatment for the many signs of skin aging, this peel is ideal for treating Melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores, dull skin, and even acne! Suitable for any skin type or color.

How does it work?

  • Step 1 of the system is the application of the peel solution to exfoliate the skin.
  • Step 2 is the application of the Stimulating Retinol Creme that works to stimulate cellular function at a deep level for collagen enhancement, firming, and wrinkle reduction.
  • Step 3 is the application of the Calming Creme that works to minimize inflammation and irritation that may result from the first two steps as well as restore the moisture balance of the skin.

Most peels do a great job of exfoliating the skin; however, Step 2, the Stimulating Retinol Creme (Vitamin A) is key to the great results.

  • Vitamin A is a key vitamin that the skin needs topically.
  • Oral consumption does not address the topical deficiency.
  • Vitamin A improves overall skin health and is one of the most effective OTC ingredients for aging skin
  • Vitamin A in ZO Skin care products are able to go inside the cell to stimulate cellular function at the dermal level
  • Vitamin A simultaneously repairs damage at the epidermal leve

What makes the ZO 3-Step Stimulation Peel so special?

This multi-functional peel provides longer lasting benefits and usage studies show that post-treatment peeling is mild to moderate and any discomfort is mitigated by the ZO® Medical Calming Crème sent home with the patient. Further, the 3-Step Stimulation Peel corresponds with Dr. Obagi’s new skincare philosophy emphasizing skin health. “Physicians and skincare professionals should focus on making skin continuously healthy rather than transiently treating symptoms of poor skin health.”

What areas do you treat with this peel?

The most common area treated is the face; however this peel can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands and even the arms and legs.

How long do the results last?

Skin peels often achieve instant, glowing results and tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just one peel, although a series of treatments can be repeated every 3-4 weeks for deeper repair.

How is the procedure performed?

Step 1: Peel Solution is applied to your skin with 17% salicylic acid, 10% TCA and 5% lactic acid to remove the outer most layer of skin (the epidermis).

Step 2: Retinol Crème (6%) is then applied to your skin. Application of this following the superficial peel allows the retinol to penetrate to the deeper parts of your skin where it is needed to stimulate your cells to turn over causing wrinkle reduction, improvement of irregular pigmentation and firming and toning. The retinol cream also contains ubiquinone, which stimulates cellular renewal, marrubium vulgare and leontopodium alpinum meristem which are powerful antioxidants, beta-glycan which protects your DNA, and myristoyl tripeptide to boost collagen to reduce wrinkles.

Step 3: Calming Crème – Post Procedure Skin Relief is applied to relieve irritation and restore moisture balance. This crème includes agents to increase hyaluronic acid and collagen production as well as improve the barrier function of your skin. The crème also contains powerful antioxidants and ant inflammatory agents to soothe and protect your skin.
