    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.

    *WOW* April 21, 2016
    Reviewer: Elise Flatt from Portland, TN United States  
    I have been fighting the whole age & skin concerns that come with hittin the mid 40's. My biggest complaint has been a texture less than acceptable around my temples & upper cheek area. In my 30's I would spoil myself on microderm's & learned the importance of alpha hydroxy acids. Cleasning just wasn't cutting it any longer. And weekly microderm's wasn't in my "2 kids in college" budget. After research, I found myself here. Thankfully! Admittedly, the peel didn't offer the frosting & peeling I was expecting. Perhaps this is due to my consistent use of Glycolic & Salicylic in my cleansers. I was a bit disappointed to not get these common effects. I was sure the benefits had to be there somewhere.
    And certainly they were! What a difference I found under that layer of light peeling! My face has not felt this fantastic in YEARS! I can not say enough of this peel. I even get excited to apply my makeup. It's just amazing. I have found a great new "skin secret" here at Skin Obsession!

    helps scarring! July 16, 2013
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Austin, TX United States  
    I've had several Jessner Peels done professionally before, for $85, & didn't really see any dramatic results as I was promised. I figured I'd try doing it myself, & I'm happy I did. I will admit, that I thought I had ruined my skin immediately after & for the the two days after having applied the peel. I even emailed Skin Obsession a picture of myself & someone emailed me back soon after, easing my fears. I was pretty much relegated to staying inside for two days slathered in moisturizer, but by day three brown sheets of my face were already peeling off. Days 3 & 4 were the heaviest days of peeling and I'm still lightly flaking off today (day 6), but can easily be seen in public. My new skin revealed my old scars are evened out & hyperpigmentation has been reduced. I'm hoping that with several more of these peels that my scars will be nearly gone & I'll have no more acne marks left. After one peel though, the results have been great!

    literally baby soft and clear skin again August 18, 2012
    Reviewer: annelle beauchamp from bronx, NY United States  
    I used the 50 % Glycolic for about two and 1/2 months before deciding to move on to bigger and better. My first time applying the the Jessner peel it felt like my face was being burned off. This peel is not meant for people with a low pain threshold. Since I was an experienced peeler the burning sensation was not a surprise, and when using a cooling tool like a fan or a blow dryer, the discomfort is bearable. My face was slightly red for the night. The actual peeling isn't terrible meaning you don't have to stay indoors. it's similar to bad sunburn. The results are evident a week after the peel. My skin is clearer and much softer after just one use. The discomfort while applying the peel is sooooooooo worth it.  I feel like my pre- puberty  skin is making a comeback.

    Amazing! April 8, 2012
    Reviewer: Veronica from United States  
    This peel literally cured my acne. The first time i used it i had some breakouts on my chin and when i mean break outs i mean like huge cystic pimples on my chin and quite a few regular annoying pimples on my cheeks. I also have some scaring and redness pretty much all over. Ive never done a peel before ive tried everything from proactiv to retin a to antibiotics clindamyacin everything in the book, i basically lived at the dermatologist. Ive also had 3 different lasers erbium, smoothbeam, and pixel which did help but it was way too much money! 3 Days after this peel it shrunk my cystic pimples down to nothing and basically peeled off my little pimples and my old scars are diminishing with every peel. I never really write reviews but I thought i need to tell someone else out there dealing with the same problems as me since i know how badly it can affect your life. Also the microdermabrasion crystals they sent as a sample AMAZING! I use them once a week my skins never felt softer.

    I love Jessner's Peels June 22, 2011
    Reviewer: robbin melton from grand rapids, MI United States  
    Just got my Jessner's kit today and tried it out. I'd used this peel before and it works wonders. I have extensive acne scarring from picking, squeezing and popping...and I have African American skin. Jessner's gets rid of spots and acne, and the kit is really nice. I like the idea of having a cleanser and moisturizer included. Both are so nice, I think I'll be using them regularly.
