Questions and Answers:

How often can I get Jessner's/Modified Jessner's chemical peel performed?

I would like to get Jessner's/Modified Jessner's peel done. I’ve never had a chemical peel done in the past, and I’m not using anything except grocery store skincare I’ve purchased for my face. Will I be able to have this done at my first appointment?

This one is difficult to answer, but it is likely you will be able to have a light Jessner’s or modified Jessner’s chemical peel. You would come in for a full consultation first to evaluate your skin as you may have other treatments that would be a better option for you. However, this may fit your needs as well. After an initial light chemical peel you would start on the medical grade skincare regimen I have recommended for you and perhaps additional topical medications to further prepare your skin for a medium depth peel in a few weeks.

Can I still exercise after Jessner's/Modified Jessner's peel?

Aerobic or vigorous exercise should be avoided for the first 48 hours, longer if the skin feels tight and leathery.

My skin is peeling post-treatment.  What do I do now?

This is normal. It is normal for you to continue to have light skin peeling for several days after this peel, up to 10-14 days. DO NOT peel, rub or scratch your skin at any time. This WILL cause damage to your skin and can compromise your results and can possibly cause marks, scars, or stains on your skin. Please continue to apply the recommended products only to your skin. If you have a piece of dry skin lifted up, snip it off with clean scissors, but do not pull it off.
