Jessner peel is an underrated form of skin treatment that can reduce wrinkles, acne, sun damage, and discoloration of the skin. Anyone with creases in their lip or white facial spots will love this treatment. Three chemicals are combined in this peel. These chemicals include salicylic acid, resorcinol, and lactic acid. Many skin specialists are now treating clients with Jessner peels because they do not penetrate the skin too deeply.
This is different from other kinds of skin peels which have been known to penetrate the skin and cause scarring. You can rest assured that there is very little chance of scarring with Jessner peels.
What to Expect
The specialist will cleanse your skin with a special glycolic cleanser. This will eliminate all the oil and dirt buildup which exists on your upper skin layer. As for the Jessner peel, each of the three chemicals which exist in it has their special purpose. The lactic acid will exfoliate the skin, the salicylic acid will penetrate the skin, and the resorcinol will treat the skin problem. The specialist may use a higher amount of one chemical versus the others, depending on the skin condition you are experiencing and the type of skin that you have.
Jessner peels work because they exfoliate the top layer of skin and all the dirt and bacteria which reside on it. Because of this, you can expect some minor flaking and peeling of the skin after the peels have been administered. These symptoms are normal and will clear up after the top layer of skin grows back. You can expect this process to take about a week, so be prepared for consistent peeling during that time. Then you will be left with smooth skin with little to no discoloration.
Since it was only the top layer of skin that was removed, there won’t be any scarring either. Instead, the sebaceous follicles that were clogged will now get opened and your dull skin will turn smooth and look younger than ever. You should only need one Jessner peel treatment to reduce your symptoms. However, your specialist may recommend weekly treatments for up to 1 month if your condition is severe and needs more consistent treatment. Fortunately, there is very little discomfort beyond the peeling of the skin.
