NeoStrata has a passion for developing the very best in antiaging skincare. From the beginning, founders, Dr. Eugene van Scott and Dr. Ruey Yu, discovered novel ingredients that have advanced the science of dermatology. Their commitment and dedication to discovery and quest for innovation in skin health and revitalization have helped to revolutionize physician grade skincare for more than 40 years. This dedication and deeply embedded passion continues today in the laboratories of NeoStrata with the careful crafting of elegant, highly effective formulations, with results proven by rigorous studies. Each NeoStrata product is backed by the highest standards of quality and effectiveness to deliver products and results worthy of our dermatological heritage.
A NeoStrata ProSystem peel treatment is a specific technique for skin renewal. This procedure helps to exfoliate skin cells to reveal fresh skin, enhance cell turnover and encourage antiaging effects. A series of NeoStrata ProSystem peels can help skin appear healthier, smoother, plumper, firmer, less oily, and more even-toned with fewer acne blemishes.
Glycolic Acid, a natural constituent of sugar cane, exfoliates the skin by enhancing cell turnover, evens the distribution of pigmentation, refines the appearance of pore size and helps smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles. NeoStrata products formulated with Glycolic Acid deliver optimal effectiveness at an ideal pH and concentration. Amphoteric formulations are designed to minimize redness and irritation potential.

As skin ages, cell turnover slows, the skin's matrix thins, and pigmentation becomes more noticeable. Common complaints include fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sagging of the skin. NeoStrata ProSystem peels provide antiaging benefits across all skin layers. Exfoliation of the surface layers enhances cell renewal and pigment evening to improve skin clarity and the appearance of hyperpigmentation. A series of peels helps provide antiaging and textural benefits including reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin of Color
NeoStrata ProSystem peels can be safely used on skin of color. The uses, benefits, and safety of Glycolic Acid peels on skin of color have been widely published in literature. In addition to exfoliation and enhanced cell renewal, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Glycolic and Citric Acids, can reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation as well as provide antiaging textural benefits.
NeoStrata ProSystem peels are quick and easy treatments that are ideal for the teenage population. NeoStrata ProSystem peels exfoliate the surface of skin helping to clear pores and provide a smooth complexion. These AHA peels also help to reduce the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Why choose Glycolic Acid over Salicylic Acid? While Salicylic Acid has established keratolytic and anti-acne effects, it is also known to cause skin thinning. Glycolic Acid exfoliates and smoothes the skin's surface while also providing a beneficial thickening/plumping effect of the skin's matrix.
Adult Acne (Hormonal)
NeoStrata ProSystem peels exfoliate the surface of skin helping to clear pores and provide a smooth complexion. NeoStrata ProSystem peels also help to reduce the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and build the skin's matrix to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The NeoStrata ProSystem Clarifying Peel for oily/acne prone skin contains Mandelic Acid to target the sebum-rich skin of acne patients.
NeoStrata ProSystem peels are effective in evening pigmentation and offer flexibility and control within the procedure, providing a measure of safety in this population that is prone to re-pigmentation if irritation develops. Combining Glycolic Acid peels with other topical treatments or home care has shown greater improvement than use of topical treatments alone. For more information, refer to the Enlighten home care products, and the study conducted using the Enlighten regimen and ProSystem peels.
Rosacea and Sensitive Skin
Patients with sensitive skin can achieve antiaging and skin smoothing benefits from a series of NeoStrata ProSystem peels by starting with a low concentration and exposure time. The NeoStrata ProSystem peels can also be used to provide adjunctive benefits to clinically sensitive skin, such as rosacea, by enhancing exfoliation and normalizing epidermal cell turnover. These effects help to reduce the papular symptoms of rosacea.
Pseudofolliculits barbae is especially problematic for those with coarse or curly hair. As hair grows after shaving, it can curl and grow back into the skin leading to an inflammatory reaction. The incidence occurs more than 50% in black men and topical application of Glycolic Acid has been shown to improve the condition in this population. NeoStrata ProSystem peels can be used to exfoliate and smooth the skin as well as help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented spots.
Keratosis Pilaris is a common skin condition that is caused by the formation of keratin plugs in hair follicles. The condition presents as rough patches of small, white or red keratinized bumps, usually on the arms, thighs, cheeks, and buttocks. Treatment of the condition usually includes the use of keratolytics and emollients. NeoStrata ProSystem peels can be used to exfoliate and normalize keratinization to smooth the skin.
