Our neck peel formulated with Pyruvic acid helps to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lighten dark spots and improve skin firmness and elasticity. Pyruvic acid, an alpha-keto acid often used to treat acne, is also an effective agent in lessening the appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation in photo-aged skin. It is combined with Lactic acid (an alpha-hydroxy acid) and Ferulic acid (a powerful antioxidant) for a treatment that produces a brighter, firmer and more even skin tone. It can be used on the neck or upper chest and decolletage. The best results will be obtained with a series of 3 to 6 peels about 2 weeks apart.
You may be a good candidate for a Neck Peel with Pyruvic acid if you would like to treat any of the following:
:: fine lines or wrinkles
:: mild dark spots of the neck or decolletage
:: decreased skin elasticity
:: uneven skin tone
Office procedure: You will be asked to wash the areas with a gentle cleanser. Your neck or upper chest and decolletage will be cleansed and the areas to be treated prepped with a preparatory solution. The Pyruvic acid solution will then be applied. You may feel a mild tingling. 1 to 3 layers will be applied depending on how your skin reacts. To complete the treatment, a neutralizer will be applied.
What to expect with treatment: Immediately after your peel, you may have some red areas, like a sunburn, which will fade within a few days. Your skin may feel a little dry or tight after your peel – we recommend that you use a good moisturizer to help keep your skin hydrated and a sunscreen with SPF of 15 or higher. You may experience some mild flaking.
Q: Can I treat my neck, upper chest and decolletage at the same time?
A: Yes, it is common to combine these treatment areas.
Q: Will the Neck Peel help to remove dark spots?
A: The Neck Peel helps to lighten mild dark spots, but may not completely remove them, depending on how deep they are. The best results will be obtained with a series of 3 to 6 peels approximately 2 weeks apart.
