Vivier Peel VS Jessner Peel: Must-Do’s For Glowing Skin

When it comes to achieving and maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin, chemical peels are a popular choice among aesthetic treatment options. They are perfect for both beginners and experienced treatment go-ers, as well as young and mature clients! Almost anyone can benefit from a chemical peel. Two common types of peels that are widely recognized for their effectiveness are the Vivier Peel and the Jessner Peel. In this blog post, we will dive into the specific characteristics, benefits and differences between these two peels to help you make an informed decision about which one is right for you.

What Is The Vivier Peel?

The Vivier Peel is a unique chemical peel formulated to address various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. Developed using a combination of pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, the Vivier Peel provides a powerful yet gentle exfoliation to reveal smoother, clearer, and more radiant skin. The Vivier Peel’s ingredients are 10% Lactic Acid, 2% Salicyclic Acid, and 14% Resorcinal.

Key Benefits of the Vivier Peel

1. Improved Skin Texture: The Vivier Peel stimulates cell regeneration, promoting collagen production and elastin synthesis, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness.
2. Reduction of Hyperpigmentation: Uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage, age spots, or melasma can be effectively treated with the Vivier Peel, revealing a more balanced complexion.
3. Diminished Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The chemical exfoliation provided by the Vivier Peel helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, revealing smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
4. Minimized Pore Size: The Vivier Peel helps in unclogging and shrinking pores, reducing their size and preventing future breakouts. This is done with the use of AHA and BHA’s. The Vivier Peel is lower in BHA’s than the Jessner Peel, so it will have a
5. Enhanced Product Absorption: By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, the Vivier Peel allows for better absorption of skincare products, maximizing their effectiveness.

The Vivier Peel Treatment Process

The Vivier Peel is a quick and convenient in-office treatment that generally takes around 30 minutes to complete for the Express Peel, or 60 minutes for the full Vivier Peel. The process typically involves the following steps:
1. Cleansing: The skin is gently cleansed to remove any dirt, oil, or impurities.
2. Prepping: A prep solution is applied to the skin to create an optimal pH balance, preparing it for the peel. We also perform a light physical exfoliation to enhance absorption of the peel.
3. Application: The Vivier Peel solution is evenly applied to the treatment area in layers depending on the skin’s reaction. The skin is assessed between layers to determine sensitivity.
4. Neutralization: After the appropriate amount of time, the peel is self-neutralized to stop the exfoliation process.
5. Aftercare: A soothing moisturizer is applied to help hydrate the skin and promote healing. It is recommended to avoid wearing makeup for the rest of the day and to avoid sun exposure, exfoliating acids, and retinol for one week.

What Is The Jessner Peel?

The Jessner Peel is another chemical peel highly regarded for its ability to address multiple skin concerns, including acne, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. This peel contains a combination of 14% Salicylic Acid, 14% Lactic Acid, and 14% Resorcinol, which work together to deeply exfoliate the skin, unclog pores, and promote a smoother, more youthful complexion.

Key Benefits of the Jessner Peel

1. Acne Treatment: The Jessner Peel helps unclog pores, reduce acne breakouts, and control oil production, making it an excellent treatment option for acne-prone skin. The increased concentration of Salicylic Acid is effective in breaking down oil and dead skin cells from inside the pores.
2. Reduced Hyperpigmentation: Just like the Vivier Peel, the Jessner Peel effectively lightens hyperpigmentation and evens out skin tone.
3. Diminished Fine Lines and Wrinkles: By stimulating collagen production, the Jessner Peel helps reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a smoother appearance.
4. Improved Skin Texture: The chemical exfoliation caused by the Jessner Peel promotes the renewal of skin cells, leading to improved skin texture and a more even complexion.
5. Treatment of Melasma: Melasma, a common skin condition characterized by dark patches, can be addressed effectively with the Jessner Peel.

The Jessner Peel Treatment Process

The Jessner Peel is performed in-office and typically takes around 30 minutes to complete for the Express Jessner Peel, or 60 minutes for the full Jessner Peel, depending on the individual’s skin condition. The treatment process generally includes the following steps:
1. Preparation: The skin is thoroughly cleansed and degreased, and a light physical exfoliation is perfeormed.
2. Application: The Jessner solution is carefully applied to the skin, ensuring an even and uniform coverage. The peel is applied in layers after carefully assessing the skin’s reaction between layers.
3. Neutralization: After the desired time, the peel is self-neutralized.
4. Aftercare: A post-peel cream is applied to soothe the skin and promote healing. It is recommended to avoid makeup for the rest of the day and avoid sun exposure, retinol, and exfoliating acids for 10 days. The skin will peel or flake for up to 14 days, although the most amount of flaking usually occurs in the first week.

Which Chemical Peel Should Your Get?

Both the Vivier Peel and the Jessner Peel offer excellent benefits and can significantly improve the health and appearance of your skin. However, when it comes to choosing the right peel for you, it is important to consider your specific skin concerns and desired results.

Both peels are effective in brightening the skin tone, improving skin texture, fine lines, enlarged pores, and reducing acne, but the Jessner peel will be a more effective form of acne treatment and exfoliation due to the higher concentration of Salicylic Acid.
