How does Jessner's peel work?

Ingredients of PCA Peel Peel Jessner exfoliate dead skin cells, restoring the disturbed natural processes in the skin. The polyacids that make up the peelings allow you to remove hyperkeratosis (keratolytic effect of salicylic acid), normalize the sebaceous glands, reduce the inflammation of rashes, accelerate the resorption of stagnant spots after acne (the effect of resorcinol), lighten hyperpigmentation (hydroquinone, arbutin, koic acid), and hydrolipidic balance of the skin and enhance its immune properties (lactic acid).

What problems does it solve?

Jessner Acne Peeling

Originally, Jessner's peel was intended to treat acne and prevent breakouts. With acne, it is impossible to achieve quick results only with external agents at home. In the pathogenesis of acne, many links are involved, ranging from concomitant internal problems (features) of the body, which are accompanied by an increase in the absolute amount of sex hormones and/or their imbalance and ending with local problems - an increase in the sensitivity of the sebaceous glands to the normal amount of hormones, a violation of keratinization of the layers of the epidermis and difficulty in outflow sebum from the sebaceous glands, bacterial growth in the sebaceous glands in conditions of lack of oxygen, and much more.

Optimal results can be achieved only with an integrated approach with examination by doctors of different specialties and external treatment with special professional procedures with clinically proven results. In this case, PCA Peel allows you to quickly solve the problem of hyperkeratosis, dysfunction of the sebaceous glands and the bacterial component. While corrective professional products complement the effect of peels at home.

Jessner's modified peeling for age spots

Formulas of modified Jessner peels developed by PCA Skin are formulated with hydroquinone, the most powerful ingredient in the treatment of age spots of various origins.

Pigmented spots of various origins, including melasma, chloasma, have many causes associated with hormonal imbalances in the body and are a serious problem torpid (resistant) to treatment. The use of a course of modified Jessner peelings PCA Peel with hydroquinone, as well as the appointment of local corrective agents, allows you to achieve results several times faster. This is due to the intensive exfoliation of the affected cells and the normalization of pigment metabolism in melanocytes (cells tooys responsible for tanning; with pigmentation, the activity of melanocytes is increased).
