About the Treatment

The Jessner peel is a highly concentrated medium to deep peel that works effectively on all skin types. This treatment aggressively targets hyperpigmentation, sun damage and scarring, while minimizing fine lines, reducing pores and tightening the skin to create a smooth, even texture. Jessner is also proven to be highly effective at targeting acne and rosacea type breakouts. Immediately after your first treatment, you will notice a progressive difference in your complexion, with a radiant, healthy and refreshed appearance

How it Works

With 14% Salicylic Acid, 14% Lactic Acid, 14% Resorcinol, Jessner Peels are deep peels that intensely and aggressively target problem areas as salicylic acid is potent in this formula. Salicylic acid helps deeply penetrate the skin and remove any congested sebum and dead skin cells. The peel loosens the connection between dead skin cells, including exfoliation and stimulation of new cells. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to flake or peel off, revealing a smoother completion.

Is a Jessner Peel right for me?

The potency on the Jessner is more concentrated than in the Vivier, so if you are sensitive, we do recommend beginning with the Vivier first.

Are Facial Chemical Peels painful?

There may be a stinging or burning sensation during the treatment but nothing that will cause complete discomfort. Redness may appear afterwards but will disappear a few days later.

How long will I need to recover?

There is no actual downtime for the chemical peels, but you will notice that if you do start to peel it will occur about 3 days after the treatment for about 5 to 7 days. Do not pick or peel the skin to prevent scarring. This should last between 5-7 days. Some people do peel a lot, while others have very minimal to no peeling occur. Also, avoid the sun and any products containing Salicylic Acid, AHAs, Retinol, Retinoids, or Benzoyl Peroxide for 7-10 days following treatment.

I have been a customer for over 5 years and truly would not trust anyone else. Dr Boulos really cares about her customers long term goals and will go out of her way to educate her customers on the treatments they are receiving so you understand the full process.

I have referred her to many friends and family who are also repeat customers and are blown away by her professionalism and experience.

Dr. Boulos is truly one of a kind. As a physician it goes without saying that she is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, but her most endearing quality is the warm personal connection she makes with each & every patient she sees. She takes the time to advise on all things health & beauty related.

From the effects of internal inflammatory issues related to skin health all the way to superficial aesthetics, she guides her patients from start to finish. I have seen her starring at patient before and after pictures, constantly evaluating and analyzing how she can improve the results, because she constantly strives to be better. Her spa is a reflection of her personality, elegant warm & welcoming!

I went to Dr. Boulos with the intention to get botox. After having the most honest conversation, she recommended how important it was that I treat the cystic acne I did not know I had. I was almost in tears in her office and was fearful I would develop scaring on my face.

Thankfully, she immediately had a plan for me to complete acid peel facials and sent me home with some skin care products. No word of a lie, within a week I was able to see results in my skin with the products she gave me. If you're struggling with your skin and want to see someone who is going to be honest and provide you with the best, you need to go see her. I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am that I decided to go to her!


I’ve been seeing Dr. Boulos for a year or so now. From the very beginning she and all the staff have always been extremely professional and welcoming. I love the products, facials and skin treatments offered.

She alway answers my questions and makes me feel like she genuinely cares about her clients. I highly recommend this medical spa, you will be in good hands.

Such a beautiful and clean spa! I’ve been seeing Dr. Boulos for a few years now for Botox, fillers, and facials. I’ll admit I’m not the best with the needles but she makes me feel so comfortable and puts up with my craziness.

She is very knowledgeable and makes the best decisions for you with no pressure to do anything right away. Her staff is also very accommodating and kind, they are wonderful at what they do.
