The NeoStrata Resurface skincare products are formulated with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) which have a remarkable effect on the top level of the skin, or the epidermis. AHAs dissolve the bonds of thickened dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, causing even exfoliation of the upper surface layers to reveal newer, hydrated, healthier skin. Exfoliation at the top layer of the skin leads to increased cell renewal in the middle layers as well. AHAs have also been shown to affect the deeper layers of the skin, or the dermis, by increasing the essential gel matrix leaving the skin plumper and more hydrated. In this way, AHAs not only work to resurface the top layers of the skin, but to smooth wrinkles from the inside out. AHAs have been shown to reduce pore size, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and enhance skin clarity and texture.
