Dr Van Scott and Dr Yu were the Dermatologists who created the first glycolic peel and who discovered the rejuvenating powers of Alpha Hydroxy and Polyhydroxy Acids (AHAs and PHAs).
When used in conjunction with Neostrata home care products, these peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin clarity, dark spots, mild to moderate acne, superficial acne scarring, keratosis and/or benign lentigines, pseudofolliculitis and keratosis pillaris.
Neostrata offers the following glycolic acid concentrations:
* 20% Skin Renewal Peel ph 1.6
* 35% Skin Renewal Peel ph 1.3
* 50% Skin Renewal Peel ph 1.2
* 70% Skin Renewal Peel ph 0.6
These peeling agents can be used in conjunction with boosters to enhance the effect and help treat specific skin conditions. Citrate Peel Booster helps improve oily and acne prone skin with oil-controlling Mandelic Acid. Brightening Peel Booster helps improve skin clarity and uneven skin tone with kojic acid and arbutin.
Brigtening Peel Booster (Contains: 30% Citric Acid, 3% Kojic Acid, 2% Arbutin)
Clarifying Peel Booster (Contains: 10% Citric Acid, 20% Mandelic Acid)
Neostrata peels’ efficacy and safety has been proven with numerous studies. The procedure lasts only a few minutes and has no downtime. It is crucial to avoid sun exposure before and after a peel and we suggest to have peels done in the winter months.
