A Jessner peel is a medium depth peel that works to improve skin health by helping to remove and heal skin damage. At DNA, our Jessner is a layered peel that gives the practitioner a lot of control in regulating how much peeling the client will experience. It’s very special in that it is a modified Jessner incorporating the powerful anti-oxidants, lycopene, a blend of organic essential oils, and resveratrol (red wine extract) with the peeling ingredients to ensure a rejuvenating and healing effect on the skin while it peels.
The brilliance of our Jessner is the incorporation of powerful antioxidants and healing agents, which allows for it to be used on the majority of skin types with little to no contraindications- unlike traditional Jessner peels.
Good candidates for Jessner are clients with:
* Fine lines and wrinkles
* Acne scarring
* Large pores
* Overall lack of elasticity
It’s not recommended for clients with:
* Active cold sores (make sure to avoid areas prone to cold sores)
* Chronic skin disorders
Post inflammatory pigmentation due to acne scarring
After 2-3 days, the skin will darken and tighten and begin to visibly exfoliate. Brighter, more evenly pigmented, soft and healthy skin is the final result.
Clients and/or patients need to be instructed to stay out of the sun for two weeks post peel and wear UVA, UVB protection daily.
The LYCO IONIC JESSNER PEEL™ combines Resorcinol, Salicylic Acid, L-lactic Acid, Red Wine and Lycopene (a powerful anti-oxidant derived from watermelon seeds) to provide a very noticeable and effective exfoliation. Jessner peels are deeper than AHA peels due to the combination and strength of the peeling agents but with the modified LYCO IONIC JESSER PEEL™ the client/patient will experience less of the common jessner side effects ie, irritation, blotchy redness and itching. Results are generally visible after only one treatment. The LYCO IONIC JESSNER PEEL™ process usually requires one full week from application to completion and is great for those who are acne prone, photo damaged/hyper pigmented, have fine lines, or have post inflammatory pigmentation due to acne scarring. Up to 6 layers of solution may be applied to the skin producing a mild ‘sunburn’ effect. After 2-3 days, the skin will darken and tighten and begin to visibly exfoliate. Brighter, more evenly pigmented, soft and healthy skin is the final result. Clients and/or patients need to be instructed to stay out of the sun for two weeks post peel and wear UVA, UVB protection daily.
CAUTION: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. A 72 hour patch test is required before applying the LYCO IONIC JESSNER PEEL™.
