Jessner's Peel


Product Description

Professional Grade Jessner's Peel

This is a professional grade, CERTIFIED Jessner's peel pH 2.0. When you are dealing with cystic and heavy acne, a medium depth combination peel can be your solution. The combination of Salicylic, Lactic and Resorcinol create a powerful reaction in the skin to help clear out pores and create a medium skin sloughing. You will have about 3-4 days downtime.

  • Congested skin with open and closed comedones.
  • Whiteheads and blackheads.
  • Back Acne
  • Chest Acne
  • Acne Scars
  • Cystic Acne (large, painful, blemishes without a point)

*Choose to add on our Luminosity Method for a multi-level Vitamin A Peel. Increase your peeling, treat acne and enhance your regeneration with an extra layer!

**Always prepare darker skin with a melanin inhibitor for a minimum of 2 weeks, preferably up to 6 weeks before your first peel. Continue reading below for more in depth information, videos, usage and ingredients.

This peel is a strong medium strength peel (such as TCA 20%)which is another alternative acid to deal with more aggressive acne issues. It will cause frosting almost immediately upon application and will provide you with much peeling. You will most likely want to plan your schedule around this peel, since there will be down time for about 3-4 days.

Jessner's chemical peel is commonly applied in multiple layers in a professional setting. *Due to the fact that Jessner's is a stronger peel, Platinum Skin Care does not recommend applying more than 1 layer the first time the acid is used. Work up slowly, and never apply more than 4 layers.*If you have melasma, are heavily pigmented, darker skinned or have a tan, we suggest you first treat the pigment with a bleaching/fading gel for at least 4-6 weeks prior to peel usage to avoid hyper or hypo-pigmentation.

Watch and learn the Jessner's method of peeling.

How do I apply A Jessner's Peel?

You must prepare your skin for any peel - especially a medium depth peel such as a Jessner's. Please follow the link below to read all about peeling and the different acids.

After you have prepared your skin for 2 weeks, we suggest the following application process:

  1. Wash face with acidic cleanser.
  2. Dry and apply 1-2 layers of Peel Prep Solution B. This will aid in numbing the skin slightly for a more comfortable peel.
  3. Air Dry.
  4. Apply peel for suggested time frame on direction sheet.
  5. Rinse well after 4-5 hours.

*If you have melasma, are heavily pigmented, darker skinned or have a tan, we suggest you first treat the pigment with a bleaching/fading gel prior to peel usage.

What can I expect after the Jessner's Chemical Peel? Before and After

Your skin will feel as though you have a sunburn. It may be pink-red and feel tight. Use a gentle cleanser 1-2x per day (do not scrub your skin), pat dry and apply a moisturizing ointment. (Emu +CP is a wonderful combination for healing and regeneration). DO NOT EVER tug on ANY skin that is peeling from your face (even if it is just hanging there). You can cause excessive damage resulting in severe scarring if you tear off a piece that is still attached at the end. *Most people will start to flake between days 2-4 and will finish in 6-7 days.

  • 1st day - Pink/red depending on how many layers of solution applied. Slightly tight.
  • 2nd day - Red/brownish coloring, a bit tighter feeling.
  • 3rd day - Dry, leathery appearance. A bit of cracking/peeling around most active areas of face (mouth, chin, nose).
  • 4th + day - Darker brown where skin has not peeled. Pink areas where skin has peeled. Very uneven texture (make up will not be able to cover).

  3. Ce peeling est très bien 5 5 Stars

    Posted by on

    Ce peeling est très bien quand on en n'a jamais fait.
    Ce fut mon premier essaie il y a 4 jours, donc j'en suis encore à peler, je n'ai pas mis assez de produit donc je pense que je recommencerai dans 1 mois.
    Au niveau de la douleur (brûlure, picotements) et bien c'est supportable, en faite c'était beaucoup moins douloureux que ce que je m'étais imaginé.

    J+4: Mes pores sont resserrés et je ne vois plus aucun points noirs, j'ai hâte de découvrir ma nouvelle peau une fois que j'aurai fini de peler.

    Je recommande ce peeling.

  4. Being a licensed cosmetologist, I 5 5 Stars

    Being a licensed cosmetologist, I had my doubts. How could something so well priced be good. Well it has surpassed as good and I will say there products are great. The purity of ingredients are wonderful. I still would suggest peeling under a licence professional other than doing it yourself.

  6. MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE 5 5 Stars

    Posted by on

    I developed severe adult cystic acne about 1 year ago (I had pimples as a teenager, but never anything so deep/ painful). At the time, I had just graduated from college and no longer had health insurance. I could not afford to see a dermatologist, and the cycstic acne got to the point where my face was constantly swollen and it hurt to make certain facial expressions. I was broke and desperate, so I completely dried mty skin out with rubbing alcohol. But I was still left with a lot of scarring- deep under my cheekbones, I had developed a hard layer of scars- almost like a bumpy sheet of brown-purple skin about 1/16-1/8 inch thick. I bought a sample size of the Jessner's peel quite some time ago and tried it, "de-fatting" my skin first and applying with a cotton ball. It did not work at all the first time I used it (I don't think I left it on long enough for my skin). I did not even think about using it for months, but one day something told me to use what was left in the bottle and try again. This time when I tried it, applying it with gauze instead of cotton, I made sure I saw clear frosting (the website says that frosting will happen immediately, but this is not the case with my thicker skin- it takes at least one minute for me to see frost). This time, using Jessner's correctly, it removed the entire, thick, bumpy, purple "sheet" of acne scarring from under my cheekbone. I have used it twice since, and it has helped restore an even tone to my skin and has slightly reduced my ice pick acne scars. The only downside is that you will want to go into hiding starting on about day 4- skin will come off in brown, leathery sheets. By day 6, there were still a few tiny patches that hadn't peeled, but I could cover them with makeup. Oh, another downside is the extreme burning (you will be crying and will want a fan nearby), but I like this because there is no doubt that it is working. Once you see the result though, you will forget about the minor pain.
