Offering a variety of peel options can lead many people to question what chemical peels is right for them. Based on skin type, desired outcomes and down time can give you the right factors and information to making an informed decision. Advanced Practice Esthetician Clara Lou was able to sit down and offer some guidance on the main factors for the peel options available within Lili’s Medspa located in Galleria Shopping Center in Edina, MN.

Not for the faint of heart, this peel has a can have a downtime of 3-5 days. This peeling is from the peel exfoliating the top layers of skin which results in shedding away excess skin. Depending on the skin type and desired results, this peel is fast acting and advanced. It is recommended that a lighter chemical peel is used prior to the Jessner Peel for a complete understanding of peel expectations. However, the Jessner peel was developed 100 years ago as it still is one of the most popular peels on the market because of its effectiveness.
