- Physician Applied • Chemical Peel
NEO•PEEL by Neocutis is an in-office superficial chemical peel that combines glycolic acid with skin brightening agents to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone and texture and helps promote renewed smoothness and radiance..
Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:
- Fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
- Appearance of mild scars
- Certain types of acne
- Age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
- Chemical Peel Consultation
Following a consultation with your skincare professional, a series of 3 to 6 peels approximately every 2 weeks is recommended. Improvement in skin tone and texture may be visible following one peel, but more pronounced results require 3 to 6 peels.*
