Chemical Peel Information

    A Lite Jessner’s or a Jessner’s Peel is a chemical peel used to treat acne, melasma, wrinkling, and pigmentary changes in the skin.  It is performed by prepping the skin and then applying a topical peel solution to the skin.  It is left on for about five minutes and then neutralized and rinsed with water.  A moisturizer and sunscreen is then applied.  You may experience a slight burning or stinging sensation when the solution is applied.  For the burning sensation to subside, a fan is used to cool the skin.  

    Before having this treatment, you should not have prolonged sun exposure for one week prior to treatment and for two weeks after treatment.  Redness, swelling and mild flaking typically last 1-3 days after treatment to exfoliate the skin. 

***Multiple peels may be necessary to provide the best results***
