The Jessner Peel is generally considered a superficial to medium level peel containing 14% of each acid (Salicylic, Lactic, and Resorcinol.) The depth of this peel is determined by the number of layers applied during application and the tolerance level of the skin it is applied to. The distinct blend of acids work in synergy to combat hyperpigmentation, sun damage and rough texture to reveal vibrant glowing skin.
Chemical peels enable your skin to re-grow, so it can help your skin recover from scars and other damage. After you heal from a Jessner peel, you can expect your skin to be smoother, brighter and healthier. Large pores will be less noticeable as well as fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. Peels can make you look younger feel happier in your skin.
What is the treatment like?
The skin is cleansed to remove excess oils. The peel solution is then applied to the skin and allowed to sit for about 5 minutes. Additional layers are added depending on the condition being treated or the desired depth of the peel. After a Jessner peel, it’s likely that your face will have a whitened look, which is called “frosting.” This discoloration will only last for a few hours. During the first five to seven days after a peel, your skin will peel and flake off. To maximize effectiveness the peels are best performed in a series of 3-6 peels at 4 week intervals.
