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.
