WHAT JESSNERS PEEL USERS ARE SAYING:

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Worked great and got an excellent peel very quickly. May be a bit stronger than you would think, if you are a first time peeler. (I also used with a .04% Retin A layered on just after) So use in only one or two layers, and that would give you a fine outcome. Expect to start peeling in 30-36 hours. If very thick skin or have undergone multiple peels already, do 3-4 layers..and use the fan on your face. Cheers.
The Jessner Peel effectively lightens hyperpigmentation, treats and prevents acne, and renews sun damaged skin. Penetrates deeper than an AHA peel alone making it a great choice for oily skin types or those desiring a deeper peel.
Darker skin tones (particularly Fitzpatrick 4, 5, and 6) should proceed with caution due to an increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from resorcinol exposure

Jessners Peel Information
The Jessner Peel is generally considered a medium level peel containing 14% of each acid (Salicylic, Lactic, and Resorcinol.) The depth of this peel is determined by the number of layers applied during application and the tolerance level of the skin it is applied to. It is recommended that new users begin with 1-3 layers for a light/medium peel. Generally 4-6 layers will result in a medium/deep peel and 7-8 layers can result in a deep peel.
Skin Type: Jessner Peel is suitable for most skin types particularly normal to oily, acneic, and sun damaged. Sensitive and dry skin types should consult with one of our estheticians to determine if the Jessner peel is an appropriate choice for them.
Benefits: Improved skin tone, texture and clarity. Reduction of acne, clogged pores, shallow wrinkles, and fine lines. Increase in collagen and elastin production.
Ingredients: Isopropyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Resorcinol, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Hexylene Glycol.

The Jessner Peel combines the benefits of three popular peeling agents: resorcinol, salicylic acid, and lactic acid. Effectively lightens hyperpigmentation, treats and prevents acne, and renews sun damaged skin.
A distinct blend of alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, and resorcinol work in synergy to create vibrant glowing skin. Lactic acid (alpha hydroxy acid) lifts hyperpigmentation and sun damage as salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) penetrates deep within the pore lining to dissolve obstructing comedones. Resorcinol has keratolytic properties to smooth a rough texture.
