Medik8 Jessner Peel

All-in-one Chemical Peel

Jessner’s Peel is a superior treatment designed to remove the entire epidermis. A Jessner peel consists of mild peeling agents that can be used to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and to treat sun damaged skin, mild to severe acne, mild scarring, discoloration and moderate wrinkling.

This chemical exfoliation can be performed in a single layer (very superficial exfoliation) or in multiple layers (superficial to medium exfoliation).

Jessner Peel active ingredients

  • Lactic Acid: AAHA that helps encourage cell turnover and stimulates collagen formation while helping to smooth and soften the skin

  • Salicylic Acid: BHA that helps dissolve sebum and debris in your pores that cause blackheads, enlarged pores and acne breakouts. It also helps reduce oil production and provides gentle exfoliation

  • Resorcinol: An effective exfoliator that helps loosen the damaged skin layers to expose the new fresh skin beneath while also stimulating collagen formation
