Chemical peels are non-invasive skin resurfacing treatments that are useful for treating common skin concerns.Â
Chemical peels are classified into three types: mild, medium, and deep. The difference between them is due to the number of layers of skin affected by the peel. Mild peels have moderate outcomes with short downtime. The medium and deep peels are strong, but the recovery process is more complicated.
A Jessner peel is used to improve the appearance of your skin. A Jessner’s peel, like other chemical peels, removes the top layer of skin. Following the Jessner chemical peel, the cells die and peel away. Your body then initiates a healing reaction, bringing new, younger-looking skin to the surface.
