What is a Jessner peel good for?

Facial Peels like the Jessner peel have been gaining popularity recently as skin resurfacing treatments, but they have been used as beauty treatments since the time of ancient Egypt!

Like other facial peels, the Jessner peel is done with a brush and stroking method with an acidic liquid that is applied to the face to remove the top layers and encourage new, younger looking skin to grow.

The Jessner peel offers a wide range of benefits and has the ability to:

  • Reduce dark patches and age spots
  • Even out skin tone
  • Reduce the appearance of scars
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Treat melasma
  • Treat hyperpigmentation
  • Treat acne scars

How long does it take for a Jessner peel to work?

After a Jessner peel treatment, your skin may continue to feel a burning or stinging sensation for 20 minutes or more. Your skin will look red, swollen and feel tight for the first 24 hours after the treatment. However, after that the swelling will reduce and your skin will begin the peeling process. Do not remove the peeling skin yourself, just let it naturally remove itself. Once the skin begins the peeling process, you will notice new smoother skin will be revealed underneath.

It can take anywhere from five to seven days after a Jessner facial peel treatment to develop new skin. Generally speaking, it may take between 7-14 days to allow the full potential of healing to complete and see your full final results from the peel.

Just like many other facial treatments available, these results are not permanent. Your skin will continue to age with time and sun exposure which can create acne scars; and may have your skin develop new spots of hyperpigmentation.

This is why it is great to talk to your technician about follow-up appointments.

How many Jessner peels do I need?

A Jessner peel treatment achieves a more thorough peel than a Glycolic Acid peel which is also known as AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) peel. Other than being a great facial treatment, a Jessner peel can be used to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and to treat acne, acne-scarred, photo damaged and aging skin.

A Jessner facial peel is a progressive treatment that will not provide the final results of your peel with just one peel. If the treatment is intended to solve a significant problem, the Jessner peel can be performed every 4 weeks depending on the condition of your skin.

Talk to your technician about a treatment plan to get the results you are looking for, as each individual has different issues they want dealt with, which could mean different treatment plans for them.

What is Jessner Peel?

A Jessner facial peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that helps to exfoliate the skin’s outer layer in order to create a smoother, fresher appearance, with improved tone and texture.

It is used to help treat acne, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fade dark spots from hyperpigmentation, and even minimize the appearance of acne scars. The intensity level of the peel can be customized to treat your specific facial concerns.

Jessner peels exfoliating acids help to loosen the bonds between your skin cells to shed old, dead cells and reveal healthier, younger, fresher looking skin.

The solution applied to your skin can vary in strength and formula, depending on each individuals circumstances and skin type.
