NeoStrata® ProSystem is a highly effective, superficial peeling system used by medical skincare professionals that is clinically proven to achieve outstanding and predictable results in skincare. The system offers the flexibility of four Rejuvenating Peel concentrations – 20%, 35%, 50%, 70% Glycolic Acid – and two targeted benefit peels for Clarifying and Brightening the skin. This allows your skincare professional to design a treatment program to specifically meet your individual needs.
NeoStrata® ProSystem superficial peels are often referred to as “lunchtime peels”. NeoStrata® ProSystem utilises three different alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs); glycolic acid, citric acid and mandelic acid. AHAs are naturally occurring acids found in fruits and other foods. Glycolic acid is found naturally in sugar cane, citric acid 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 anti aging effects.

A NeoStrata® ProSystem peel treatment is a specific technique for skin renewal. A high concentration of AHA is safely applied to the skin for a short period of time and then chemically neutralised to end the treatment. This procedure helps to remove the damaged layer of surface skin cells revealing fresh skin, stimulating cell turnover and encouraging anti aging effects in the deeper skin layers. A series of 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 done in a series of controlled treatments, AHA peels are often comparable in their results to some deeper peels without the complications.

A chemical peel is a topical solution applied to the skin to soften the dead skin layer and exfoliate the skin. Once those dead and damaged skin cells peel away a clearer, smoother and more youthful appearance is restored.Chemical peels can be applied to the face, neck, décolleté or hands. Many skin conditions can be improved when receiving a series of peels. NeoStrata® peels can be used to:

  • Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
  • Treat certain types of acne 
  • Reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) 
  • Dull skin will appear more radiant and rejuvenated and rough or uneven skin will become smoother

NeoStrata®  skin peels work superficially within the skin producing minimal downtime and are the leading skin peels currently available. 


Your practitioner may recommend pre-treatment with one of the NeoStrata® products containing glycolic acid. It is important to start using this NeoStrata® product as soon as it is recommended, often 2 weeks prior to your peel.


The peel solution will be applied to the skin. Your practitioner will monitor your individual response to the treatment and this will determine the length of your treatment based on your level of comfort and key skin responses to the peel solution.

During the NeoStrata® ProSystem peel you may experience slight discomfort which may include stinging, burning, itching, tingling or a heat-like sensation.

After the prescribed application time the peel solution is then chemically neutralised to end the treatment.


Initially your skin may be red and feel sensitive. Some patients experience stinging, burning, itching, mild pain or discomfort, tightness. These are all normal and expected results. It is important to remember that unlike other peels, you do not have to see visible flaking or peeling of the skin to achieve desired results. You may notice that your skin feels rough over the next couple of days due to enhanced exfoliation/light peeling. Many people experience fresh, clean glowing skin post peel, and the short term results are a bonus as the aim of the peel treatments is long term skin health through a course of treatments and home care.


After a chemical peel the skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sunlight and other sources of UV light (tanning beds etc.), so it is recommended to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen every day.

Neostrata Bionic Face Cream and Neostrata Daytime protection are recommended following your treatment. 

Textural smoothening and improvements with acne prone skin can occur with 1 to 3 peels. Deeper textural changes require multiple peels. Noticeable improvements usually occurs following 3 to 6 peels.The most severe skin issues can take longer to improve. Results are best achieved in a series of treatments and may be combined with other types of aesthetic treatments to get the best possible outcome for your skin.
