After all, the very word lends itself to images of raw, red, painful skin. Like most people, you probably judge the strength of a peel on the percentage of active ingredients. In the end, the lower the pH balance, the more the acid in the peel will affect your cells—the importance is finding the right balance for your skin type. If you thought peels were only for those with wrinkles, you thought wrong. Peels with salicylic acid, like Jessner Peels, can be used to effectively treat acne at any age.

Chemical peels are generally considered to be the foundation of any results-driven clinical skincare treatment plan. They are central in our arsenal to fight aging, acne, and brown spots for all ages and skin types. Chemical peels are the most versatile and customizable treatment to help remove cellular buildup and regenerate all skin types. Most Celebrity Skin combo treatments contain a chemical peel in addition to other treatments, such as dermaplaning or oxygenation as these corresponding treatments enhance the effectiveness of the peel. Peels may be especially beneficial in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne, sun damage and photoaging.
Light Chemical Peel
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking. Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration and scars — typically on the face.
Also known as glycolic acid peels or AHA chemical peels, light chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment that removes the upper layers of dead and damaged skin and encourages skin cell regeneration. This type of peel provides gentle treatment for fine lines, acne, chronic dry skin, and uneven pigmentation. The formulation of the chemical solution used in a light chemical peel depends on the needs of the individual patient. Light chemical peels are also known as glycolic acid peels, AHA chemical peels, or salicylic acid chemical peels.
