My Neostrata Peel Experience

Posted on by Anouschka in Anti-Aging, Product Reviews, Skin Care

In my quest to turn back the clock, I contacted Dr Alek Nikolec and he designed a ‘programme’ of treatments that I’ll document as we go along.


First we did Botox, and shortly afterwards I was back for a Neostrata peel.


What skin problems would you use a Neostrata peel for?

A Neostrata peel regimen visibly diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes and softens skin, increases hydration and suppleness, and balances irregular skin tones. It can also improve oily/acne prone skin.

Higher strengths can help to reduce the appearance of acne scarring and certain pigmentation problems.

It can also be used safely and effectively on all skin types.



The lovely Vashnee cleaned my face of all make-up and de-greased my skin so that the glycolic acid can reach the skin for best results.


The Neostrata peel is one of the newest type of peels that is a Glycolic acid peel (sounds more hectic than it is) which you only leave on for up to 5 minutes. Even though it feels stronger than peels I’ve had before, it’s only on for a much shorter time, and gives you an amazing result.


Seriously my skin feels and looks so soft and smooth. In comparison to a regular facial, which only has visible effects for a day or so, this peel should keep your skin looking fresher for about 3-4 weeks, and it’s recommended that you have a peel every 4-6 weeks.


Here are some photos of the treatment:

I’m super impressed with how my skin feels. Even though it wasn’t pleasant it definitely wasn’t painful, and it was very quick.  My skin feels tighter, almost like a sunburn but not red at all. Just gorgeous.
