Professional Skin Care Products Used by Estheticians

If you are taking your skin care into your own hands as opposed to visiting an esthetician on a regular basis, it is important to use quality skin care products and treatments. This means foregoing the cheaper (and often ineffective) commercial products that you will find in any drugstore. In order to be effective, certain treatments given by estheticians do require professional skin care products including chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and a plethora of various professional facial treatments. This is not to say that professional skincare products are out of reach to the home user.

Jessner’s Chemical Peel

A Jessner’s Peel is a medium depth peel, stronger than other chemical peels on the market, which is often performed by an esthetician. With professional skincare products however, a Jessner’s chemical peel can be done by the individual home user. Because of the unique combination of quality grade ingredients, a Jessner’s peel can improve the appearance of extensive skin damage from aging and sun damage in comparison to the results one would see with lactic acid or glycolic acid peels.

Microdermabrasion Treatments

Professional microdermabrasion treatments performed by an esthetician use a special machine which delivers a spray of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. The dead skin cells are then removed and immediately sucked away with a vacuum tool. Home microdermabrasion kits are now available but it is important to select a kit which will provide professional results such as Skin Rx’s Microdermabrasion Peel Kit #1 which includes everything you need to complete a series of professional microdermabrasion treatments in the comfort of your own home.

Professional Facial Treatments

Various professional skincare treatments performed by an esthetician include glycolic acid peels, lactic acid peels, and other anti-aging treatments. AHA chemical peels which contain glycolic acid or lactic acid can also be performed at home with similar results as long as the products you use contain professional grade ingredients. Skin Rx recommends starting with the Glycolic Peel Kit #1 or a 30% Lactic Acid Peel.

To ensure a safe and professional skincare experience, be sure to follow the instructions exactly as they are written. For best results, more than one treatment will be required so be sure to use the product as often as directed to achieve the improvement you desire.

Jessner’s Chemical Peel

Jessner’s Peel is a combination chemical skin peel treatment which has been proven effective in peeling away the superficial layers of the skin. It is a light chemical peel which is a combination of resorcinol, salicylic acid, and lactic acid. This combination provides more significant results than these ingredients used alone to achieve better exfoliation and deeper penetration. A Jessner peel can also be used for hyperpigmentation to lighten areas of the skin and even to treat brown spots due to aging or sun damage. Jessner’s peel works well on all skin types to smooth and rejuvenate the skin and improve mild to severe acne, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and moderate wrinkles. Jessner’s chemical peel can be used on the face, neck, upper chest, and hands, as well.

A Jessner’s Peel is a medium depth peel, stronger than other chemical face peels on the market, which can either be done by a dermatologist or skin care professional or as an at home chemical peel. Because of the unique combination of ingredients, a Jessner’s peel can improve more extensive skin damage from acne, aging, and sun damage compared to lactic acid or glycolic acid peels.

When you are ready to perform your Jessner peel, you will first need to cleanse your face with a glycolic cleanser such as Skin Rx’s Glyco-Lactic Gel Cleanser. This will ensure that no dirt or oil is left behind on your skin so the Jessner peel will be able to properly penetrate your skin.  Once you have applied the Jessner’s chemical peel, it is normal to feel a mild burning sensation on your skin. It may help to have a fan close by which you can use to blow cool air onto your face to alleviate the burning feeling. A Jessner’s peel stays on for a short period of time as recommended on the product instructions and then it is to be rinsed off thoroughly with cool water. Over the next few days, your skin will peel or flake off to reveal healthier and smoother skin.
