This is a superior treatment designed to remove superficial layers of skin. It’s one of the most effective light cosmetic peels available. A Jessner peel consists of a mild peeling agent that can be used to lighten areas of hyper pigmentation and to treat aged sun damaged skin.
The Jessner’s peel is excellent for all skin types. It smoothes and rejuvenates skin, producing beautiful results in treating mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling, and sun damage. Peeling the face, neck, hands, and upper chest is also quite effective.
It is beneficial for patients with acne, oily, or thicker skin, because it tends to decrease oil production and open clogged follicles. It also contributes to the healing process of acne.
The Jessner’s peel combines resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to result in deeper penetration and greater exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. This deeper exfoliation produces noticeable flaking and exfoliation in the following three to four days after the peel, and within a week a smoother, healthier layer of skin will be revealed.
Your skin will turn pink for a few days, then peel and flake for about 5-7 days. After you heal nice, smooth skin will be revealed. The procedure is usually repeated 3-4 times about a month apart for optimal results.
Approximate Length of Procedure: 15 – 30 minutes
