The purpose behind the formulation of Modified Jessner, was to create a medium depth peel with less inflammation production. It was discovered that using multiple ingredients at various strengths limits the inflammatory response – making it safer than ‘normal’ medium depth peels like TCA. The thought process behind the formulation was to create a safer peel for darker skins as TCA was not, and isn’t always the safest option for dark skins.

K-Surgery has created a unique Modified Jessner with skin safety top of mind.

With the unique formulation of Succinic Acid, Monoacetate Resorcinol and Lactic Acid, the peel is designed to target texture, pigment / uneven skin colour, age related conditions like dehydration and keratin build up.

Resorcinol is a potent anti-inflammatory with tyrosinase inhibiting abilities, ensuring safer peel penetration and a managed skin response. It has a wide variety of benefits in treating most skin conditions – acne, scarring, pigmentation and aging. With an alkaline pH, resorcinol penetrates rapidly without triggering any negative skin responses.
Lactic acid has long been known as a key to anti-aging. There are many reasons Lactic acid is used in peels. It has a gentle keratolytic effect on the stratum corneum, it evens out the skin tone as it assists in regulating the keratinization cycle – in turn also having an affect on age related metabolic slumps.
Succinic acid is known to be a potent anti-inflammatory that targets any pro-inflammatory cytokine activity. If you have never used chemical peels before, such a concentration is perfect to start with. The product prevents dull and lifeless skin, helps to reduce wrinkles and signs of photo-ageing, combats acne and prevents acne scars and normalises sebum secretion. It can be suitable for people who are hypersensitive or allergic to other chemical peels.
The usual formulation of a Jessner is Resorcinol, salicylic acid, and Lactic acid – all above 15% concentration. By substituting salicylic acid with succinic acid, we have a gentler peel result and response. It also allows for a higher percentage of active ingredients as salicylic is limited at 14% before becoming a skin irritant. Inflammation creates many damaging skin responses – all resulting in aging. A term such as ‘inflamAGING’ explains it all.
K-Peels Modified Jessner is done every 2 weeks over 8 weeks (4 peels @ 2-week intervals) mild peeling occurs which makes this peel great for clients that cannot afford down time – yet want a result orientated peel.
