The physician-strength ProSystem Retinol Peel from NeoStrata contains 3% retinol plus the company’s Retinol Boosting Complex. The peel exfoliates skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps reduce acne, improves skin laxity, and promotes a brighter, more even complexion. The in-office treatment contains a blend of key actives that complement the retinol: NeoCitriate and Aminofil, which smooth fine lines and wrinkles; skin-calming bisabolol, derived from chamomile; and vitamin E for an antioxidant boost.
