As a component of the Neostrata Prosystem retinol peel, derived from the carotene, Retinol is a vitamin A acid which is the natural precursor of retinoic acid. It does come in various strengths and at varying purity and concentrations.

Retinol is, along with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and frutis acids, the most effective ingredient against wrinkles and loss of firmness in the skin. On the surface of the skin, retinol has an exfoliating effect that smooth skin texture and gives a natural glow, with anti-oxidant properties that allow the regulation of melanocytes (attenuates the intensity of brown spots).

Neostrata Prosystem Retinol Peel can cause negative reactions to the skin if not used within very precise protocol. At Epilium & Skin only our nurse performs this specific peel to ensure the desired results.

The NeoStrata ProSystem Retinol Peel is applied at Epilium & Skin Clinic by our Aesthetic Nurse & then the patient will need to wash it off at home 8 hours later.

The peel doesn’t colour the skin, so the patient can resume to his/her normal activity straight after its application. Once the peel has been removed, patient should expect mild skin flaking for 3 to 5 days upon individual.

Post-peel, we recommend to moisture your skin twice a day, use an SPF 50 protection every morning and drink a lot of water to support the new skin production.

At Epilium & Skin, we advise a course of 3 treatments a month apart for optimal results.
