Neostrata Skin Peel & Microdermabrasion

A chemical skin peel is a clinical grade skin rejuvenating treatment used to target a number of skin conditions such as:

  • black head removal
  • oil congestion
  • dry, flaky skin
  • dull, dehydrated skin
  • pigmentation

Or if you just want a rejuvenating and anti-ageing effect then this will be a perfect treatment. The Neostrata skin peel works by penetrating into the epidermis reaching a deeper point than any home skincare products. This coupled with the microdermabrasion treatment unblocks pores leaving you with immediately clearer and brighter skin.

The Skin Peel Treatment

Here at Cosmetic Courses we train in the Neostrata skin peel. This is a superficial peel which is designed to give you results of some of the traditional peel systems with minimal flaking and dryness. The microdermabrasion system uses medical grade crystals in a small vacuum-like device to exfoliate deep into the skin, removing black heads and impurities. From experience we have found that having the two treatments together maximises the results compared to having either treatment seperately. As your skin will be much fresher and the top layer of dead skin cells has been removed, any skincare products used on the face post treatment will work deeper into the skin, again optimising their benefits.
