As you age, your skin can become dull and leave you looking tired and older. A Jessner chemical peel can help refresh and smooth your skin for a healthier appearance. If you have minor imperfections, this treatment can help turn back the clock from the effects of aging and restore your self-confidence.

Treatment Process for a Jessner Chemical Peel

During the treatment process, approximately four to six coats of the Jessner chemical peel solution is applied to the skin. You may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation. The medium depth peel is a leave-in solution that self neutralizes. It penetrates the skin to reduce the appearance of scarring, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

You may experience some redness, swelling and peeling for a few weeks after treatment. Your provider will give you special instructions following treatment to help you during the recovery process. It may take up to two weeks to see the full desired results from this treatment. Multiple treatment sessions may be required.

Jessner Peel Ideal Candidates

A Jessner peel is ideal for individuals who have darker skin or suffer from melasma. If you have certain skin disorders or are allergic to milk, you may not be considered a good candidate. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon can help determine if you are an ideal candidate. The provider can examine your skin and review your medical history to recommend the best treatment plan for your aesthetic goals.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
