This peel is often referred to as the “Red Carpet Peel” due to the large and growing number of celebrities that use it to look FABULOUS before the paparazzi start snapping photos as they walk down the red carpet at major Hollywood events. These celebrities can’t afford the downtime that some other peels cause.

The Ossential® Stimulator Peel is gentle on the skin but strong enough to make a noticeable difference, brightening and refreshing the face for that youthful, dewy look.

The Ossential® Stimulator Peel contains 3 different acids known as AHA or Alpha Hydroxy acids. They act in concert to dissolve dead skin cells, promote cell turnover and increase moisture to the skin. Lactic acid helps to brighten and lighten the skin and clear out toxins and debris. Citric acid is perfect for giving skin an even healthy glow.

With just one peel you will look refreshed and have a healthy glow. To achieve maximum benefits, a series of four to six peels at two-week intervals is recommended.
