The Jessner's Peel
A Jessner’s peel is a peeling solution that is designed to improve skin on a deeper level. It combines lactic acid and salicylic acid with resorcinol to exfoliate while treating conditions such as acne and hyperpigmentation. The solution used in Jessner’s Peel induces a superficial peeling of the skin and is particularly effective for treating oily skin and acne conditions in some people. One of the main ingredients, salicylic acid, deeply penetrates the skin, and removes congested sebum and dead skin cells.
A chemical peel, such as the Jessner's Peel, can do wonders to tone up fine lines and wrinkles that have started to show around the eyes, forehead and mouth areas. Although, this is considered a mild peel, you may feel some brief stinging / tingling as it is applied and sits on the skin. The solutions can be applied in a layered fashion which provides a variety of results. The great news, after the Jessner's Peel has done it's job and all of that old skin has fallen off, you’ll be thrilled at what you see in the mirror after you’ve healed. There is nothing like running your hand across a face that is smooth as silk and soft to the touch.
