Jessner's Peel Orlando
What is a Jessner's Peel?
The Jessner's Peel is a solution consisting of 14% lactic acid and 14% salicylic acid (AHA) peeling agent with a resorcinol solvent. This is a strong chemical peel that is known for delivering great results.
Why choose a Jessner's Peel?
A Jessner's peel achieves a more thorough peel than a Glycolic Acid peel also known as AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) peel. Besides being an excellent facial treatment, a Jessner's peel can be used to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and to treat acne, acne-scarred, photo damaged and aging skin.
How is this Procedure Conducted?
Jessner's solution is gently applied onto the skin. Repeated coats are applied until a white frost develops. For a deep, effective peel, this usually takes 4 to 6 coats. A temporary stinging, burning and numbing sensation has been noted upon initial contact as well as minor skin sensitivity and light to moderate redness. Once the peel is neutralized, Steppie MD® Infinity UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+ is then applied. Not only chemical-free, this UVA/UVB daily sun protection provides moisture while protecting your skin from the sun, which is very important after a chemical peel. You will need to follow the post-treatment instructions provided by your paramedical clinical esthetician for safety and optimal results.
After the Peel?
The downtime is moderate. It varies accordingly to individual skin traits and selected concentration/application methods. After a few days, the top layer of your skin will naturally flake or peel away. This could last for 5-7 days on average but there is a possibility that it may take longer. This process, in essence, reveals a much clearer and smoother skin.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. We recommend using STEPPIE MD® Infinity UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+, which provides broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays with no chemical sun filters. It contains the FDA-approved physical blocker, Micronized Zinc Oxide to reflect light away from the skin. Apply 30 minutes before exposure and reapply often when exposed to the sun.
Note: Ethnic skin types should proceed with caution due to an increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from Resorcinol exposure.
How often should I do a Jessner's Peel?
A Jessner's peel is a progressive treatment that will not provide a final result with one peel. If the treatment is intended to solve a signifcant problem, Jessner's peels are performed every 4 weeks depending on the condition of your skin.

Last week I had the opportunity to meet you and your fine staff as you worked to clean up a cancerous spot on my face. It turned out to be a lot deeper than anyone including me believed. It took five passes to get to the bottom of it. No one on your team gave up on the effort to get it all. Every time I had to go back for you to search further, everyone was upbeat and positive. Words cannot express how important this was to me as I was getting more and more discourages. Peter, and your magical staff, could not have been more professional nor kind. They each in their own way went out of their way to make me as comfortable as possible while explaining what was going to happen next. Further, I am deeply appreciative of you taking the time to meet with my wonderful wife to explain the process, successes, and challenges.
