Frequently Asked Questions
NeoStrata ProSystem utilizes three different Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs); Glycolic Acid, Citric Acid and Mandelic Acid. AHAs are naturally occurring acids found in foods. Glycolic Acid is a fruit acid derived from sugar cane, Citric Acid is found naturally in citrus fruits, and Mandelic Acid in almonds. Many common skin problems are associated with the excess build-up of dead skin cells that make the skin thick and dull and may cause clogged pores. AHAs help loosen and remove the dead surface layers of skin to exfoliate and smooth skin, as well as provide deeper antiaging effects. A NeoStrata ProSystem peel procedure is a specific technique for skin renewal. A high concentration of AHA is safely applied to the skin for a short period of time then chemically neutralized to end the procedure. This procedure helps to exfoliate surface skin cells to reveal fresh skin, enhancing cell turnover and encouraging antiaging effects. A series of NeoStrata ProSystem peels can help the skin appear healthier, smoother, plumper, firmer, less oily, and more even-toned with fewer acne blemishes. AHA peels have the advantage of being non-toxic and are used for superficial peeling of the skin because they require little recovery time. Usually completed in a series of four to six procedures, AHA peels are often comparable in their results to some deeper peels without the associated complications.

Lack of Sun protection
Ultraviolet radiation is prone to penetrate the skin cells on the face and cause a mutation leading to darkening of the skin cells. It is always useful to wear adequate clothing and we also remind you that the use of sun protection is crucial for healthy looking skin.
How does the peel work?
The peel uses kojic acid to induce a quick depigmentation action.
The Kojic acid works by inhibiting melanin in the skin. It physically peels the skin layers and regenerates the skin.
It significantly reduces the abnormal, dark, blotchy, discoloured patches on the skin.
