Skin Treatments with ZO SkincareZO Stimulator peel is the newest addition to the family of peels brought to us by Dr Zein Obagi. This peel is different because the results are remarkable with zero downtime!

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 colour. This peel is suitable for most patients and can help with the following:

  • 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 3-Step Stimulation Peel works to improve the overall health of skin through exfoliation and cellular stimulation in the deeper skin layers. It is a highly effective treatment for many signs of skin aging, including melasma, sun damage, fine lines, uneven texture, large pores, dullness and acne.

Step 1 of the system’s three steps is the peel itself, which is formulated to remove the outermost layer of skin. Composed of salicylic acid (17%), trichloracetic acid (10%) and lactic acid (5%), the peel also contains saponins to minimize inflammation and glycerin for hydration.

Step 2 is application of the Stimulating 6% Retinol Creme. Applied after the peel solution, the cream works to stimulate cellular function at a deep skin level. The results include collagen enhancement as well as firming and wrinkle reduction.

Step 3 is the application of the Calming Crème Post Procedure Skin Relief. The cream works to minimize inflammation and irritation that may result from the first two steps, as well as restore the moisture balance of the skin. You will be advised to take the cream home to apply twice daily following the in-clinic treatment to speed the healing process

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

Skin peels often achieve instant, glowing results and tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just one peel (although a series of 4-6 peels provides best overall results). A ZO homecare program should be used for approximately 6 weeks prior to having this peel. Peeling will normally occur 3 days post peel and end on day 5.

The 3-step stimulator peel by ZO can also be followed by a mask (one of the following):

  • Aloe Hydra Masque – hydrating and calming.
  • Bio-Sulfur Masque – deep pore cleansing to reduce oiliness, clogged pores and irritation.
  • Brightening Masque – help to brighten and even skin tone for pigmented skin.

A series of 3-6 stimulator peels are recommended to improve skin health; these should be repeated every 2-3 weeks alongside your ZO homecare regime. The masks are an added treatment to complete the peel process and calm and rejuvenate the skin.
