What’s the difference with Neostrata retinol peels done in the salon vs. OTC retinols that I can use myself at home? Are they worth the price difference? I’m new to it all.

Hiya, editor Georgia here answering on Alice’s behalf.

In-clinic skin peels, no matter the brand, use stronger concentrations of acids (the exfoliating agents) and other active ingredients than what you can buy to do yourself, because they are active chemicals and need to be handled by a pro. Depending on what you want to treat with a peel you may well be able to achieve great results at home with NeoStrata’s homecare peels (and I’d always advise just about anybody to use a good retinol regularly), but if you have deeper-seated skin issues such as acne scarring or moderate wrinkles or pigmentation, you’ll need to see a specialist. Find one we recommend near you using our Practitioner Finder, and find out more about skin peels here.
