HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEELING AGENT
The Jessner peel is a highly effective peeling agent formulated with a combination of Resorcinol, Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid for a intensive medium to deep strength peel. For experienced users only who have had experience with peel treatments such as Salicylic 20% or higher or Glycolic 50% or higher.
LIGHTEN AREAS OF HYPERPIGMENTATION
The Jessner Peel can be used to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation, treat mild acne and acne scars and to treat photo-damaged and aged, sun-damaged skin. Jessner peels achieve a more thorough peel than Alpha Hydroxy Acid peels and are appropriate for patients requiring deeper peeling.
TOP LAYERS OF SKIN
Jessner peels cause the top layers of skin to flake off while also stimulating the deeper layers of the skin. The top layers of skin are the most sun-damaged, wrinkled, unattractive layers of skin. After they are removed, the new fresh and younger-looking skin is revealed and brought to the surface.
DEEPER LAYERS OF SKIN
The deep layer of skin, the dermis, is also stimulated by the Jessner skin peel. This causes new fibroblasts and collagen to develop, reducing the depth of lines and wrinkles caused by aging. Repetitive peeling with JessnerÃ?Â¢??s peel improves tone, texture, and quality of the skin.
The depth of the Jessner peel is controlled by the number of layers applied (up to 8.) Repeated coats are applied until the white frost develops or until the stinging becomes unbearable. For a deep, effective peel, this usually takes 4 to 6 coats, after which one should continue to fan the face for several minutes until the pain sensation fades.
Rinse thoroughly with cool water and pat dry.
Darker skin types (particularly African American) should proceed with caution due to an increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from Resorcinol exposure.
