Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Resorcinol
14% or 17% Solutions
A Jessner’s Peel is considered a medium-strength peel and can treat a variety of skin concerns. This peel can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, and sun damage including age spots. It is an effective treatment for acne and will exfoliate skin while reducing oil production and clearing clogged pores. A Jessner’s Peel is sometimes applied before other peels like a TCA peel to treat acne scarring and increase penetration of the TCA.
This peel contains three effective ingredients: lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol. Together these ingredients exfoliate the skin to remove imperfections. Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that diminishes cohesion of the surface skin cells to exfoliate the skin. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that also exfoliates while reducing oiliness and acne. It is a frequently used ingredient in acne treatments as it can reduce blackheads and whiteheads and has anti-inflammatory properties. Resorcinol both exfoliates and slows acne-causing sebum production.
A Jessner’s Peel is usually recommended for Fitzpatrick skin types I-III and not for darker skin tones. For patients with Fitzpatrick skin types IV-VI we offer a wide range of customized formulations with ingredients and strengths that will be less likely to cause hyperpigmentation. For all patients proper aftercare is recommended including regular use of broad-spectrum sunscreen.
