Dermatology

PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoStrata today released new clinical research that validates the benefits of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) at- home peels in obtaining skin rejuvenation benefits as a complement to medical anti-aging treatments such as lasers and microdermabrasion. The data were highlighted in the Poster Session at the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in San Antonio.

"Physician-dispensed home peels provide significant anti-aging and skin- smoothing benefits," said Barbara Green, Vice President for Technology and Clinical Affairs at NeoStrata. "Our research shows that AHA home peels offer meaningful anti-aging benefits to supplement the effects of in-office aesthetic procedures, such as non-ablative lasers, stronger in-office glycolic peels and microdermabrasion."

A group of 17 patients received an AHA at-home peel for weekly use over two months. A second group of 23 patients used an AHA/poly-hydroxy acid (PHA) peel twice a week for four months. Both groups also used bionic/PHA homecare products in between peels. Participants noted improvements in the appearance of skin texture, wrinkles and radiance. Eighty-three percent of patients in the twice a week protocol perceived younger-looking skin within four weeks or less, and the majority perceived healthier looking skin and reduced pore size. Patients reported at-home peels were well-tolerated and non-irritating.

Supportive at-home products included a PHA cleanser; bionic/PHA or PHA day cream with SPF 15; and bionic/PHA night cream. All products complemented at- home peels and were selected to provide additional anti-aging benefits, including diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone.

"Our study demonstrates that the use of doctor-dispensed AHA home peel products can be a very convenient and flexible first step in a comprehensive skin rejuvenation program," said Ms. Green. "The data also suggests that home peels are a reliable way to boost the effect of in-office cosmetic procedures or to maintain skin between procedures."
