NeoStrata Clinical Findings Reveal Benefits of Combining Glycolic Acid Peels and Targeted Home Care With Microdermabrasion for Optimized Treatment of Photodamaged Skin

Clinical Poster Presented at Annual Meeting of the American Academy of

Dermatology

PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoStrata today released new clinical data that demonstrates significant benefits in combining microdermabrasion procedures with free acid glycolic acid peels plus bionic/poly-hydroxy acid (PHA) at-home products in improving the appearance and texture of facial skin. The data were highlighted in the Poster Session at the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in San Antonio.

"Microdermabrasion and glycolic acid peels are popular aesthetic procedures for the treatment of photo-damaged skin and acne because they act to exfoliate the epidermis and stimulate cell renewal," said Barbara Green, Vice President for Technology and Clinical Affairs at NeoStrata. "Our research shows there is significant benefit in skin tone, texture and appearance when microdermabrasion is supplemented with glycolic acid peels in a bi-weekly protocol supported by appropriate at-home daily use of bionic and PHA products."

A group of 10 patients applied a 10 percent alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) cream each evening for two weeks prior to in-office procedures. This conditioning phase served to acclimate the skin to AHAs. Free acid glycolic peels and microdermabrasion treatments were performed alternately every two weeks for a total of four glycolic acid peels and four microdermabrasions over 16 weeks. Patients were given anti-oxidant-rich Bionic/PHA creams post-procedurally, when skin may be sensitive, to calm irritation, hydrate skin and help repair skin barrier function. Patients were also given a collection of bionic/PHA products for at-home use in between procedures, including a cleanser, moisturizer/sunscreen and night cream. The products provided anti-oxidant effects, redness reduction and barrier strengthening.

According to Ms. Green, 100 percent of subjects perceived early benefits after one series of treatments, enhancing patient compliance and commitment to the full protocol. Physicians used a gradual increase in both peel concentration and microdermabrasion vacuum pressure, as tolerated. After the full series of treatments, patients noticed marked improvement in clarity, fine lines and coarse wrinkling. Patients also recorded dramatic improvement in skin firmness and brightness/luminosity.

"The combination approach validates our belief in the benefits of complementary procedures focusing on accelerated exfoliation and cellular renewal -- supplemented with a skin care regimen based on effective yet gentle bionic/PHA technology," said Ms. Green. "An integrated, targeted regimen can provide effective benefits to the overall appearance and texture of skin without the downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures."
