Chemical peels are one of the best treatments for improving your overall skin health and appearance.  Everyone should incorporate chemical peels into their skin care regimen.  Are you seeking something outside of your normal peel routine? Do you want dramatic results without the dramatic downtime?  Ask your dermatologist about the new NeoStrata Retinol Peel.

NeoStrata Retinol Peels pack a 3-tiered treatment system that reduces wrinkles and blemishes, firms skin, and brightens your complexion. The peel is administered by your dermatologist in the office and must be left on for up to 8 hours to fully do its job before washing the peel off at home, but the results are worth the wait.  It is a very effective peel with minimal downtime, showing visible results even after one peel, although a series of four to six peels at four to six week intervals is recommended.

Treatment begins with the application of 1-2 layers of the specially formulated NeoStrata peel, which contains a proprietary and proven blend of ingredients for maximum results:

  1. 3% Retinol to boost the production of collagen and speed up the skin’s natural exfoliation process
  2. NeoCitrate®: an ingredient patented by NeoStrata to increase collagen production and plump the skin.
  3. Amino ll®: an amino acid derivative which boosts hyaluronic acid to plump skin and smooth lines.

Once the peel, is applied, it must be left on for 4-8 hours, depending on the sensitivity of your skin. During that time, it is best to stay out of the sun, as your skin will be incredibly sensitive. After time is up, rinse your skin thoroughly to remove the peel.

At first, it may seem like the treatment didn’t actually cause a skin peel, but 2-3 days after application, you’ll notice that old skin begins to flake off. In 5-7 days, the peeling will taper off, revealing radiant, glowing skin that has been refreshed and renewed by your retinol peel.

M. Elizabeth Briden, MD, FAAD,CEO and Medical Director of Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Institute had this to say about the treatment:

“Patients love the ProSystem Retinol Peel and their results! It is a very simple procedure with minimal risks and downtime and immediate results. It is not painful and patients experience flaking and peeling that they expect to have with a peel. They love the smooth, silky feel and overall radiant appearance of their skin afterward.”
