Modified Jessner’s Skin Peel (Medium-Depth Skin Peel)
Through a unique combination of peeling agents, a Jessner’s peel exfoliates, moisturizes, and protects the skin for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
A Jessner’s peel is a combination of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol. Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) used for exfoliation, lactic acid is used as a moisturizer, and resorcinol acts as an antiseptic. Resorcinol, however, is now usually replaced by alpha-hydroxy acids like glycolic acid or azelaic acid, which makes the treatment considered a modified Jessner’s peel.
This treatment can be used to treat any of the following conditions:
- Acne Scars & Scars: Jessner’s peels penetrate dermal layers to debride and remove scar tissue.
- Uneven Skin Tone: Skin layer penetration in a Jessner’s peel removes collections of hyperpigmented cells for a more even skin tone.
- Uneven Skin Texture: Jessner’s peels break down collections of dead/damaged skin cells and sebum.
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles: Jessner’s peels promote cell turnover for a refreshed complexion.
- Melasma: A Jessner’s peel penetrates lower skin layers to lessen melasma symptoms.
