Benefits of a Home Jessner Peel
Home Jessner’s Peel solutions are now becoming much more readily available and safer to use. While there are some benefits to carrying out this procedure at home it is still advisable to seek medical advice before proceeding with a home peel, as there are a number of problems and complications that can be encountered. Certain medical conditions preclude the use of a chemical peel and without proper dermatological advice you may not be doing yourself any great favors by peeling at home.
Until recently, regulations prevented home treatments from being the same strength as those used professionally, but now there are numerous full strength Jessner’s solutions and kits on the market. The use of the milder Jessner’s Peels that used to be available can be beneficial as a first-time peeler. As you gain experience with the procedure you will also find other problems you may have with chemicals as well as discover for yourself the flaking and peeling process actually works. There will be limited risk as long as ou follow the instructions carefully; however the results will not be as effective as a professional peel.
One of the most obvious benefits of a home peel is the cost. A home peel kit will cost somewhere in between $100-$200, whereas a professional peel will be between $500 and $2000. These figures can vary of course, depending on the jessner peel manufacturer and the severity of the problem with your skin. Don’t forget that if you encounter any complications with a home peel you will naturally have to pay for any medical help you have to seek, whereas a professional peel will have any aftercare included. If you purchase just the peel solution itself, there is also considerable cost involved in the preparatory treatments and aftercare products, so make sure you know the cost of the whole package before comparing prices.
Some home peels will be available at around $30 but these should be avoided. They are most likely diluted considerably with alcohol and the end result of using them is likely to be more dryness than peeling.
Secrecy and Intrigue
Although it is possible to carry out a home peel yourself, it is perhaps best to get a trusted friend to do it, as it is much easier to apply the solution correctly to another person than yourself. The need to take care, especially around the eyes and to apply the solution evenly in layers can make this a slightly tricky procedure to carry out in the mirror. In addition to this, the application of cooling air to relieve discomfort while undergoing the peel can be more easily achieved by a second pair of hands.
There is however an advantage to home peels applications in that you do not have to go outside immediately after the peel on your way home. Due to the need for sun protection for several days after carrying out the peel procedure, coming home from a dermatologists office can necessitate covering up, which might give your secret away if you want your peel to remain private. Many people like to carry out this procedure at home just for this reason, so they can reveal themselves after the peel effects have cleared up and healed. So the ‘surprising’ new look will be attributed to nothing more than careful cleansing and healthy eating.
