WHAT IS THE JESSNER PEEL?
This popular peel has been around for many years. This is considered the “lunch time peel” and is considered a superficial peel. The peel consists of three main ingredients:
Lactic Acid– The lactic acid in the peel accelerates the skin’s cell renewal rate which softens the epidermis (top layer of skin) and stimulates collagen growth.
Salicylic Acid– Exfoliates deep into the lining of the pores to rid of dirt, sebum and debris that an cause blackheads, whiteheads and enlarged pores.
Resorcinol– Breaks down dead, uneven and rough skin, it actively sterilizes bacteria upon contact.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN I TREAT?
This peel is safe to apply to any body part. Most popular areas are the face, decolletage, and hands and back.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A JESSNER PEEL?
Your skin is first gently cleansed and oils are removed. Then the Jessner solution is applied. The skin tingles and feels slightly warm as the Jessner solution works. Every few minutes another layer of solution is applied until the desired end-point is reached. Your provider will analyze your skin and determine how strong a peel your skin needs. Unlike other peels, the amount of peeling after your treatment can be adjusted to meet your needs and desires.
DOES IT HURT?
Most people experience a slight burning sensation during application.
WHAT IS MY DOWNTIME?
Minimal downtime with this peel. For 2-3 days after the peel, the skin feels like a layer of plastic film has been applied, and then it exfoliates for an average of 2 to 4 days. Normally, the skin appears windburned, with moderate flaking, but actual peeling is rare. Outcomes will vary depending on method of application, thickness of the skin and the sensitivity of the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Jessner peels are mild peels, but you can get good results with treatments in series for both skin tone/hyperpigmentation and skin texture irregularities. Some patients are happy after one peel but some benefit from a series. You will be sent home with a customized skin care program to reach your desired outcome for healthier, more youthful skin.
