(A spot test is always recommended, no matter your skin tone)
If you are like most of my clients, you would love to be able to look in the mirror and see clear, even toned, radiant skin, but are unable to afford the expensive treatments offered by spas and dermatology offices. Now you can use the same type of product your dermatologist and favorite spas offer in the privacy of your own home at a fraction of the cost. You owe it to yourself to see what a dramatic difference a Jessner's chemical peel can give you, not just on your face, but neck, chest and hands. This versatile peel has a proven track record of safety and great results.
Jessner's peels cost an average of $300.00 per peel, with the average treatment course of 6 peels to see optimal results.
The Jessner's Peel is a light to medium peel, the depth of which is controlled by the amount of time you leave it on your skin and the number of layers you use. This is a very safe peel and is suitable for all skin types, especially those with oily or acne prone skin. Some darker skin tones, particularly African American run a small risk of post peel hyper or hypo pigmentation.
As with all products, a patch test is recommended to see how your skin reacts. Of all the peels, the Jessner's peel has the best track record for darkly pigmented skin. This peel contains 14% of each of the following active ingredients: Salicylic acid, Resorcinol and Lactic Acid. Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid and is the only oil soluble acid used in skin care. This makes it particularly suited to acne prone skin and oily skin types.
Salicylic acid helps dissolve the dirt, sebum and debris in your pores that cause blackheads, enlarged pores and acne outbreaks. It also helps reduce oil production and provides gentle exfoliation. Because it is closely related to Aspirin, there is a small chance of allergic reaction if you have an Aspirin allergy and you should choose a different peel.
Lactic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy acid that helps encourage cell turnover and stimulates collagen formation while helping to smooth and soften the skin.
Resorcinol is an effective exfoliator that helps loosen the damaged skin layers to expose the new fresh skin beneath while also stimulating collagen to form.
