Jessner Peel - The Jessner Peel, used nationwide in salons and medical offices, is the esthetic peel of choice for clients desiring a more intense peel than that typically achieved with progressive AHA peels. Excellent for acne scarring, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and sluggish skin.
The Jessner Peel can be safely used by most skin care professionals, and with proper training you will be able to anticipate potential problems and properly address any unanticipated outcomes. This class will teach you the treatment process, indications and contraindications, the importance of home care products, and the proper management of aftercare.
TCA Peel - TCA is the abbreviation for trichloroacetic acid, a chemical commonly used in a wide range of chemical peels. TCA peels use a type of acid that can be customized to a variety of applications and strengths, from a quick lunch-break treatment to a complete restart for your skin.
Trichloroacetic acid is a derivative of acetic acid (vinegar) and is used to remove the top layer of cells for a smoother, clearer complexion. Among the conditions that can be treated with TCA are melasma, sun damage, actinic keratoses, lentigos, texture, and rhytides.
The strength of TCA depends on what condition is being treated. Medium and deep peels, including those that involve TCA, usually require a week or two of downtime as the old skin peels off.
TCA acts on keratin, a common protein found in the skin, hair, and nails. The chemical denatures the keratin proteins — in other words, removes their outer structures — which causes them to stop functioning correctly, lightening the skin and making the top layers peel off.
There is a delicate balance of the injury and renewal cycle in gauging a peel’s effectiveness. The deeper the peel, the more substantial the injury created. As the skin heals, new collagen is created reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
