With winter winding down, it’s time to shed those layers of hats, scarves, and wooly socks, as well as the layers of wind- and cold-damaged skin.

Harsh winds, low humidity, and subzero temperatures are the perfect formula for sapping the moisture out of your skin, leaving it looking a lot worse for the wear by the time March arrives. Hydrating regularly with a high-quality moisturizer can help, but what your skin needs to throw off the winter blues is a fresh start. Chemical peels provide just that, sloughing away flakes, impurities, and dead cells that prematurely age us.

A two-prong approach to the problem is your best bet for achieving a flawless complexion. Start your spring off with a rejuvenating in-office facial peel, followed by weekly at-home maintenance with the NeoStrata Perfecting Peel.

Turn Back the Hands of Time with Monthly Intensive, In-Office Peels

To begin the process of refreshing and renewing your skin, your provider will speak with you about your biggest skin concerns, and if you have any sensitivity as well. Because chemical peels consist of potent acid blends, your skincare professional will customize the strength of your treatment to your tolerability for the best results. We offer chemical peels in a range of strengths, from the mild to more aggressive in glycolic acid, mandelic acid or retinol.

As one of our skincare experts goes to work applying the peel solution, the acids penetrate deeply into the upper layers of skin, stimulating cell turnover and boosting collagen production. Over time, you’ll see a reduction in the appearance of acne, age spots, discoloration, fine lines, dullness, melasma, poor texture, and sun damage.

Your provider will explain the different options available through our in-office chemical peel treatments, as well as help you schedule follow-up visits every 4-6 weeks.

NeoStrata Perfecting Peel Keeps Your Skin In Peak Condition Between Visits

Maintain your fresh and dewy complexion between appointments for in-office peels with NeoStrata Perfecting Peel. It’s gentle enough for weekly use but noticeably improves skin texture and clarity with a simple, two-step process.

First, the easy-to-use peel pad delivers a blend of AHAs, including glycolic and citric acid, to the surface of your skin. These potent ingredients get busy exfoliating away the dead, dull surface layers and revealing fresh, supple skin underneath. This advanced exfoliation also helps diminish fine lines and hyperpigmentation, especially with routine, in-office professional peels.

One of the best features of the NeoStrata Perfecting Peel kit is the neutralizing wipe. If your skin feels overly stimulated or inflamed at any point during your peel, you can neutralize the acids in the peel for instant relief. It also helps ensure that your skin isn’t left even more sun-sensitive from leftover actives that might remain after treatment.

NeoStrata Smooth Surface Glycolic Peel Pads

The Smooth Surface Glycolic Peel Pads at-home peel pads exfoliate, clarify pores, even skin texture and tone, while AMINOFIL® helps to plump and smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation, roughness and pore size when used daily.

Easy to use and only one step, these 10% AHA glycolic acid chemical peel pads do not require neutralizing or rinsing. They are sure to enhance any antiaging regimen.
