Jessner Facial Peel

Jessner Facial Peel

A Jessner Facial Peel is a medium depth chemical peel; it is one of the most effective peels to remove superficial layers of the skin. A Jessner Facial Peel combines Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Resorcinol to exfoliate the skin and penetrate into the skin’s layers. These three ingredients help to improve skin tone and texture by softening the bonds that hold dead skin cells together while also exfoliating on the surface. It is highly effective medium strength peel that can be customised depending on the number of layers applied by the Nurse.

The Jessner Facial Peel can cause a mild stinging sensation which only lasts for several minutes after application. We do try our best to keep treatment as pain free as possible.

How does it work?

A medical consultation is required by Dr Kennedy prior to the Jessner Facial Peel being applied. The Peel can then be performed at the same time if appropriate or at a later stage.

The solution is applied to a clean dry face with light gentle strokes onto the skin. The solution can be layered up to 8 times, initially up to 4 times.

How many treatments will I need?

Jessner Facial Peel can be applied every 2-3 weeks until the desired results are achieved.

How long do results last?

Results can last from 6-12 months or longer for some. Results are client dependent and longevity can depend on skin condition.

What can I expect after treatment?

  • For the first 24-48 hours there will be mild to moderate redness depending on how many layers of the solution were applied.
  • Skin will feel tight and and have a red/brown colour.
  • Skin will have a dry/leathery appearance. Peeling/cracking will appear around areas of the mouth, chin and nose.
  • Skin will have a darker brown appearance where skin has not peeled.
  • Most people will start to flake between 2-4 days and will finish by 7 days. DO NOT pick the skin as this can cause scarring or prolonged healing.
