What is a Jessner's Peel? The Jessner's Peel is a solution consisting of 14% lactic acid and 14% salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) peeling agent with a resorcinol solvent. This is a moderate chemical peel that is known for delivering great results. Why Choose a Jessner's Peel? A Jessner's peel typically achieves a more thorough peel than a Glycolic Acid peel (also known as a AHA, alpha hydoxy acid, peel). Besides being an excellent facial treatment, a Jessner's peel can be used to lighten superficial hyperpigmentation and to treat acne, photo-damaged and aging skin. How is this Procedure Conducted? Jessner's solution is gently applied onto the skin. Repeated coats are applied until a white frost develops. For a deep, effective peel, this usually takes 4 to 6 coats. A temporary stinging, burning and numbing sensation has been noted upon initial contact as well as minor skin sensitivity and light to moderate redness. Once the peel is neutralized, we will recommend a Matted Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This UVA/UVB daily sun protection provides moisture while protecting your skin from the sun, which is very important after a chemical peel. After the Peel? The downtime is moderate. It varies according to individual skin traits and selected concentration/application methods. After a few days, the top layer of your skin will naturally flake or peel away. This could last for 5-7 days on average but there is a possibility that it may take longer. This process, in essence, reveals a clearer and smoother skin.
