Refresh, revitalize and renew your complexion with a chemical peel from Dr. Karam
Step one: Salicyclic acid, lactic acid and trichloracetic acid are applied.

Step three: A soothing topical cream is applied continuously after the peel that softens and hydrates the skin.
The Jessner peel is medium-strength chemical peel that is designed to remove damaged layers of depleted cells and fight the everyday stress of environmental toxins. Treatment results tend to last longer than the average peel, making it especially popular about facial rejuvenation practitioners.
The Jessner peel has three key ingredients, which include lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol. Together, these three compounds help to exfoliate, penetrate and heal broken, compromised skin.
At first, your skin may be tight, dry and red, as well as slightly sensitive. These are all normal reactions to the peel, and just means that the peel has done its job. Slowly over the course of about a week, the skin will turn from a pinkish color to a more brown shade. Once the damaged layer has been shed, however, your new complexion will be glowing and healthy. So expect about 7-10 days of recovery.
