Jessner peels are popular medium-depth chemical peels that improve skin health by helping remove and heal skin damage. Stronger than most chemical peels, the Jessner peels heal damage more extensive than regular “wear and tear”.

The Jessner peel consists of three main ingredients: lactic acid (assists in the exfoliation of the skin), salicylic acid (aids in penetration), and resorcinol (assists in the treatment of acne).

These ingredients work together to exfoliate the outer layers of skin by breaking up dead skin cells and encourages the natural peeling to start several days after the chemical treatment.

In the office, your skin is thoroughly cleansed and then the peel chemicals are applied. Typically, a lightweight moisturizer or a calming mask is applied to the skin at the end of the treatment and you can go about the rest of your day.

If necessary, the Jessner peel can be repeated every four weeks until the desired results are achieved; but, for most patients, only one treatment is required.
