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.
