The Jessner’s peel is excellent for all skin types. It smooths and rejuvenates skin, producing beautiful results in treating mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling, and sun damage. Peeling the face, neck, hands, and upper chest is also quite effective.
The Jessner’s peel is very beneficial for patients with acne, oily, or thicker skin, because it tends to decrease oil production and open clogged sebaceous follicles. It also contributes to the healing process of acne.
The Jessner’s peel combines resorcinol (14%), lactic acid (14%), and salicylic acid (14%) to result in deeper penetration and greater exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. Each of these ingredients acts in a slightly different manner for significantly visible exfoliation and minimal complications. This deeper exfoliation produces noticeable flaking and exfoliation in the following three to four days after the peel, and within a week a smoother, healthier layer of skin will be revealed.
