What is the Neostrata skin peel?
At Dr CP Aesthetics we use Neostrata’s professional range of facial chemical peel. The Neostrata skin peel not only works at the skins surface to exfoliate dead, dull surface layers, it also stimulates the process of cell renewal among all layers, to reveal fresher, healthier cells.
This peel has been clinically proven to;
- Refine pore size and smooth texture
- Visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve clarity and brightness
- Brighten and even skin tone
- Provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness and smoothness to skin
Is it safe?
Neostrata is a medical strength chemical peel and its products are recommended by dermatologists and plastic surgeons in over 60 countries. Neostrata is the #1 professional AHA skin care brand used only by physicians worldwide.
After a consultation and assessment of your skin, the peel strength will be decided. It is usual to start at a low strength peel and build up gradually to minimise any hypersensitivity.
Who is it good for?
Neostrata peels can be used to treat a multitude of skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities, mild to moderate acne, superficial acne scarring and texture problems.
What can I expect during treatment?
A peel is a relaxing procedure. Your face is double cleansed then a brightening or clarifying solution is applied to the skin using a soft brush. The next step involves the application of glycolic acid which can make the skin feel tingly. After 5 minutes this solution is neutralised by the application of a refreshing spray. The skin is then moisturised, and SPF applied before the treatment is completed.
It is common for the skin to look slightly pink after a peel but this usually settles after a few hours. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so it is essential to use SPF50.
When will I see results?
We suggest a course of 3-6 treatments for the best results. Results vary from person to person. Some might experience dryness, roughness or slight irritation and mild peeling. It is important to note that you do NOT have to experience peeling to get results. You will see and feel the difference in your skin after just one treatment, but your skin will continue to improve with repeated treatments.
Who shouldn’t have a peel?
If you suffer with an autoimmune disorder, have active cold sores, diabetes, cancer, thyroid disorders or if you are pregnant or breast feeding. a peel should be avoided. Roaccutane should not have been taken for 6 months prior to a peel and you should stop using topical retinol for 2 weeks before a peel.
