New Skin Revealed after Jessner Peel
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. I call it an insurance policy. I personally never liked deep peels as an Esthetician because I didn’t feel that I had control of how much peeling a client would get and potential reactions. But the brilliance of our Jessner and the power of the antioxidants allow me to feel “in control” of the peel.
We recommend doing a 24-hour patch test with your client before applying the Jessner peel. Apply the Jessner to a small area behind the client’s ear. Do not use this peel if test site on the client is raised, welted and itching. This offers you an extra level of security with the Jessner.
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
If a client has any of the above skin conditions, I typically put them on DNA products and CryoStem Treatments to get their skin healthy again and then reassess doing Jessner in the future. If a client seems sensitive or simply has unhealthy skin, I recommend doing at least 3 CryoStem treatments several weeks apart prior to Jessner to get their skin in shape.
My first “Tip”
with DNA Jessner is that I have had a great deal of success with “Spot Treating.” If a client just has a single spot or just a few spots of hyperpigmention, you can simply apply Jessner to the individual spots. This is great for clients that due to schedules and social events can’t do
the entire face. It’s also great for other areas of the body as well, i.e. hands, legs, chest, etc. You can do several layers, just as if you are doing our regular protocol.
My next “Tip” is a little trick that one can do 24 hours after Jessner application to make peeling less invasive. You can have the client apply and maintain a thin layer of Zen therapy gel, and then a more generous layer of our organic vegetable glycerin. This will encourage healing with the peptides in the Zen Therapy gel and keep the skin from drying out. When clients do this protocol, they are finished peeling a few days sooner and the dead skin rolls off rather than flakes off. This method is great for clients that have events to attend or simply have an aversion to peeling.
Pre Peel Protocol:
MediClear Skin Lightening Wash
MediClear Cleansing Pads and/or MediClear Acne Serum
Mediclear Lightening Gel
Supernatural Vitamin A Serum
DNA CryoStem Cell Therapy
Peel Application: To begin the peel protocol, cleanse twice with Medi-Clear Lightening Wash™ then use Medi-Clear Cleansing Pads™ to remove any remaining oil and sebum. Use a small (glycolic) fan brush to apply. Use a Wood Lamp to assure even application and avoid overlap. Let peel dry before next application. Your client may want to use a fan during treatment. The peel is self-neutralizing so there is no need to remove it from the skin.
Post Peel Protocol:
No product use for 24 hours
Use DNA Citrus Burst or Crème of Nectar morning and evening. Do not use any therapeutic products for 5-7 days until re-epithelialization.
It’s great to follow up with a Hydrating Ampule once the skin has finished shedding. This ensures deeper penetration of the Stem cells as well as accelerated healing.
It’s important to have your clients with hyperpigmentation use our Lightening wash and Lightening gel with our powerful Medi c crystals to assist in getting rid of hyperpigmentation before and after peeling.
If doing any press or marketing for peels in the near future, it’s great to print up one of our Jessner before and after pictures and frame them in your waiting area. You could include tag lines like “peel away that summer damage” or “start the new year with new skin.”
