Chemical peels improve the overall appearance of your facial skin by removing the damaged outer layer. As a result, facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation are greatly reduced. A variety of peeling agents and formulations can be used.
Jessner’s Peel is a medium depth peel designed for more extensive damage than AHA’s can improve. It is a blend of salicylic acid (a beta hydroxy acid), lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) and resorcinol. Your skin technician will apply a glycolic cleanser over your face to fully remove the oils so that your Jessner’s solution will penetrate properly. Then the Jessner’s solution will be applied to your face in layers as a “frosted” look appears. Over the next 7 days your skin will flake and/or peel revealing a smooth, bright complexion. Clients often comment on a noticeable improvement in fine lines, pore size, and the tone and texture of their skin.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a medium depth chemical peel designed to rejuvenate and repair the skin. Benefits include an improvement in skin texture and tone, as well as reduction in lines and discoloration. Because peeling is expected with this treatment, it may require up to a week of downtime. Common treatment areas include the face, neck, or top of the hands.
