What a Jessner Peel Is – And Why It’s Amazing
Though Jessner Peels have been around for quite some time – and we have been offering them in our Warren, MI area med spa for years – they are suddenly becoming all the rage with celebrities. In fact searches and social media posts for Jessner peels have skyrocketed in the last year!
As the Warren, MI areas experts on skin care and chemical peels, we explain what a Jessner Peel is – and why they are so amazing.
What Is a Jessner Peel?
There are actually three different classes of chemical peels: superficial (no downtime); deep (weeks of downtime); and medium. Chemical peels in the medium class peel just the upper layer of the dermis – which means it is much more effective than a superficial peel, but does not have the extensive downtime of a deep peel.
The Jessner Peel is in this just right “Goldilocks” zone of chemical peels. Not too hot (severe) and not too cold (mild). Jessner peels are a safe, highly effective way of treating lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, and even crepey loose skin, on the face, back and more – with only minimal downtime.
What’s In a Jessner Peel?
A true Jessner Peel contains medical grade ingredients – and it requires specific clinical application methods. So OTC drugstore and online Jessner Peel “kits” are not going to be as strong or as effective as the clinical strength Jessner Peel you will get at our Warren, Mi area med spa.
The classic Jessner peel contains a mix of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids in a specific ratio—14% of trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic, and lactic acid in an ethanol base. The pH of the solution is also formulated to be maintained at 1.9 – which makes it a pretty strong acid that is effective at removing the upper layer of skin.
Because the Jessner Peel is so acidic, it is essential to have it applied by a skin care professional, like the aestheticians at Advanced Laser Skin Care in Warren, MI.
How a Jessner Peels Works
There’s a very specific strategy behind this complex mix of ingredients. Which is why is works so well – and everyone is talking about it. According to de Sousa, it’s very specific. Here’s what happens.
First, the salicylic acid – which is is keratolytic in nature – dissolves hardened skin cells in the top skin layer (epidermal). Next the lactic acid infuses hydration to the skin on a cellular level. TCA (trichloroacetic acid) is used as the base of the peel, for its antiseptic bacteria-killing properties.
We also add retinol, the miracle molecule that absorbs into skin and stimulates the skin cells to produce new, healthier, younger cells.
The Jessner Peel Difference
The Jessner Peel takes several days to complete the peeling process – but not several weeks like deeper more aggressive peels. The Jessner solution essentially dissolves the top-most layer of the skin, oil, debris and dead skin cells. This then triggers an inflammatory response that causes the skin to start healing itself by building new skin cells. And the healing process improves sun damage, hyperpigmentation, scarring, wrinkles, acne and acne scars, and increases tone and elasticity.
