A Jessner Peel is a medium depth chemical peel which is effective in removing the outer layers of the skin. It can be used on most skin types and is used to treat sun damaged skin, ageing skin & to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation. Jessner Peels offer a safe, yet effective treatment for a range of concerns with little downtime. One of the most popular peels for over 30 years!
The unique formulation of a Jessner Peel combines lactic acid (used for exfoliation), salicylic acid (used for penetration) and resorcinol (used to reduce oil content) to deeply exfoliate the skin and penetrate deep into the skin’s layers. It is applied in layers to the treatment area and remains on the skin for several hours and in most cases, overnight. Peeling usually begins on or around day 3-4 following the application and generally takes 7 days for total exfoliation to occur.
