ZO Stimulator Peel
The ZO Stimulator Peel is a superficial peel which causes no downtime no peeling or flaking. A combination of citric, glycolic and lactic acids help to improve skin texture and tone by providing both accelerated exfoliation of the epidermal layer and a unique brightening complex works to prevent the formation of pigmentation.
If you have been considering a peel but feel a little nervous, then the Stimulator Peel is for you. This 'celebrity' loved treatment is a favourite before big events and is often known as the ‘lunchtime red carpet peel’ because no downtime is required afterwards, simply a glowing rejuvenated complexion.
It uses a combination of three exfoliating ingredients- glycolic, lactic and citric acid to slough away dead skin cells and any superficial blemishes to reveal fresh, clearer skin underneath. It also stimulates cell turnover for continued improvement to the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is ZO Stimulator Peel?
This peel is made up of a combination of lactic, citric and salicylic acid plus potent concentrations of other active ingredients to exfoliate the skin, stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin and reduce lines, wrinkles and other blemishes.
What happens during the ZO Stimulator Peel?
Your skin will be cleansed using the appropriate cleanser from the ZO range to remove any make up or oil. This is followed by ZO Exfoliating Polish and Polish Activator and ZO Peel Prep Solution to prepare the skin for the Peel.
The Stimulator Peel is then applied and left on for two to four minutes before it is neutralised with pads soaked in Peel Neutraliser, which restores the Ph balance of the skin after the acids in the peel. If you are having a Brightening or Hydrating Medical Peel, the appropriate products are then applied. The final step is the application of ZO Daily Power Defence moisturising serum and ZO Ommerse Renewel Cream to hydrate and protect your skin.
The active Peel solution causes the superficial layer of the skin to peel off and may cause slight initial reddening. The treatment exposes a new layer of healthy undamaged skin, resulting in a smoother texture and a more even skin tone.

How long does the treatment take?
The treatment will take about 45-60 minutes.
You will notice results straight away and skin will be fresher, glowing and with an improvement in texture and tone. We recommend a course of treatments for optimum results.
Is the peel painful?
Unlike some stronger chemical peels during which you may feel discomfort, the Stimulator Peel is not painful and does not involve any downtime. You may experience a mild warming sensation briefly whilst the peel is applied. There may be slight initial reddening of the skin, followed by limited peeling a day or two later. For special events the Peel is ideal to have 3 days before.
How long before I see results?
Most people will see a dramatic improvement in their skin after just one peel. However, we recommend a course of 3 to 4 Peels, 4-6 weeks apart for maximum benefit.
How often should I have a ZO Stimulator peel?
We recommend having a peel once a month for optimum skin results.
