Ever wondered how celebrities look so flawless on the red carpet? Having a professional team of makeup artists and stylists certainly helps, but savvy celebs throng to Dr. Zein Obagi’s head office in LA for a revolutionary chemical peel from Obagi’s ZO Health line.
ZO Ossential Stimulator Peel
It’s called the 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.
Using the Ossential peel with other ZO products and protocols makes it even more effective, but it can be used on its own for great results.
Ossential 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 peel is suitable for use on most patients says Dr. Lisa Fay, and will make skin look fresher. When you arrive at Cosmetic Doctor for your appointment, your skin will be cleansed using the appropriate cleanser from the ZO range before the peel preparation product is applied to your skin.
It’s then followed by the Stimulator Peel which is left on for three to five minutes before it is neutralised with pads soaked in bicarbonate of soda. This restores the Ph balance of the skin after the acids in the peel. The final step is a moisturising serum called ZO Ossential Daily Power Defence is applied and an SPF to protect your skin.
The timing of the peel is important, as skin may get a bit flaky two days afterwards before fresher skin becomes evident, so call Cosmetic Doctor to book yours in plenty of time for Christmas on
