BRIGHTENEX™ is one of Dr. Zein Obagi’s newest, uniquely formulated treatments that controls hyper pigmentation to achieve an even skin tone and color; the formulation also acts to stimulate skin renewal for fine lines. As BRIGHTENEX™ contains retinol with a unique delivery system; it is strong enough to be used alone without any other stimulator such as tretinoin. It is the perfect product to be used as an introduction to the ZO Skin Health philosophy or as a complement during the maintenance phase of the entire system.
For my six week skin preparation for a Thermage treatment, I used BRIGHTENEX™ in the morning after Balatone, initially for the first day I used one pump, but the formulation is not uncomfortable on the skin, so for me it was easy to step up to two pumps on the second day.
What I really like about BRIGHTENEX™ is that it does NOT contain Hydroquinone, which is a breakthrough in skincare for those of us with stubborn hyper pigmentation. For my skin the hyper pigmentation began to subside after 8 days, however I can that say that you do need to take time with the application and rub the 1 – 2 pumps well into your skin. I can’t stress this enough, if you just apply it, this brilliant product will not be able to do its job.
I learnt to be patient and after I cleansed and toned I moved from the bathroom and sat down, then using the two pumps rubbed and massaged the BRIGHTENEX™ well into my skin until I could feel a slight warmth. This is a result of an increase in the blood circulation that brings energy producing nutrients and oxygen to the skin’s cells as well as carrying away metabolic waste products, at this point you are aiding BRIGHTENEX™ to go into the skin and work within the cell structure.
Bioengineered to target all three stages of skin discoloration through a patented, bio-vectored, microsphere delivery system. BRIGHTENEX™ is the first commercial product launched that stabilizes pure retinol (1.0%), melanin inhibitors and antioxidants with natural, patented Oleosome technology. Oleosomes are microspheres of antioxidant-rich emollient oils and vitamins found naturally in plant seeds like almond and safflower.
