Women and men from Marin County and San Francisco come into Jessa Skin for the first time with the same complaint, “I hate my skin!” The seemingly never-ending battle with pimples, lines, dark spots and dull skin can be so frustrating. We understand and are here to help! After a personal consultation, we will guide you on your way to an organic, healthy transformation that will provide you with the lasting results you’ve always desired. Trust us, we see these kinds of results every day!
When you look in the mirror and see a dull complexion, what you are actually looking at are the dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin. That top layer of skin also takes the brunt of sun exposure which causes wrinkles and ages the skin before its time. When that top layer is peeled away, a healthy layer of vibrant new skin is found. One of the best ways to effectively remove that dead skin layer is with a professional fruit acid peel such as the ones performed at Jessa Skin. Not only does a fruit acid peel remove that layer to help with dullness, fine lines and wrinkles, but it also gives a thorough cleansing to the skin which is very effective on pimples and acne.
A fruit acid peel is not to be confused with a chemical peel practiced in dermatologists offices. If the idea of a chemical peel scares you, well, what else can we say besides…it should! The harsh, abrasive chemicals used actually burn off the top layer of skin and can be very painful. Additionally, there are risks of becoming very sensitive to sunlight and permanently changing the pigment of your skin (basically bleaching you). Fortunately, Jessa Skin has an all-natural answer to the facial peel that delivers the results without the harsh consequences.
Fruit acids are naturally occurring substances found in a variety of places such as apples, mushrooms, milk and sugar cane. These acids, also called glycolic acids, not only remove that top layer but also stimulate the skin to produce natural collagen which fills in fine lines and wrinkles. The benefits of fruit acid peels are glorious and many! Clients experience even skin tone, diminished acne scars as well as softer, smoother, firmer and healthier skin.
Fruit acid peels are most effective when performed in a series on a regular basis. They vary in strength (from 5% to 50% glycolic, lactic and pyruvic acid) depending on your individual needs and skin complexion. Your esthetician may begin with a milder peel then eventually increase to a deeper peel. Fruit acid peels do not take a lot of time and can be performed on their own or added on to any Jessa Skin Facial for maximum benefit.
