Peel off the signs of time. Jessner peels are a medium depth peel designed to improve more extensive skin concerns such as mild or severe acne, sun damage, mild to moderate wrinkles, and discoloration including melasma. Peels work by speeding up the skin’s cell renewal rate, revealing the new, fresh and healthy skin cells beneath.
A Jessner peel is a combination of 14% w/v Resorcinol, Salicylic Acid, and Lactic Acid. Salicylic acid dissolves hardened skin cells, and opens up clogged pores on the outermost layer, lactic acid adds a dose of hydration, and resorcinol encourages healthy cell renewal with its antibacterial properties. In a controlled manner, these ingredients reach the upper layers of the dermis, and start the cell renewal process. The Jessner solution is a leave-on solution, meaning once the peel is applied, it remains on the skin even after you leave your treatment. Following treatment, the peeling process can take anywhere from 3-7 days.
