Jessner Peel

Description

Circadia’s Jessner’s Peel is a combination of 14% Resorcinol, 14% Lactic and 14% Salicylic Acid. Since resorcinol is a peeling agent, the client will experience noticeable peeling or flaking approximately 3 to 4 days after the peel. Resorcinol will increase the amount of peeling experienced after a peel. Peeling is usually light to moderate and depends on the skin condition and depth of the peel.
