DermaQuests® Modified Jessner’s Peel is designed to manage acne, preventing persistent breakouts and calming current blemishes with Salicylic Acid. Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, the Lactic Acid in this peel helps lift dark spots that have come about due to acne scarring. Another active ingredient in this peel is Resorcinol, which is great at exfoliating away dead skin cells, excess oil and debris to reveal the clean and clear complexion you always had waiting underneath.

How does Dermaquest's Modified Jessner's peel work?PlusMinus

Uniquely formulated to refine and unclog pores for smoother, brighter and clearer skin, Dermaquest’s Modified Jessner’s Peel is designed to stop breakouts in their tracks and hamper the unwanted effects of acne.

This treatment works by dissolving built up oil in your skin; this action then prevents severe acne outbreaks. Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, this treatment also employs lactic acid to lift dark spots due to acne scarring, and includes resorcinol to exfoliate away dead skin cells, which diminishes the bacteria on your skin that otherwise encourages acne to spread. This treatment also reduces inflammation and swelling of cystic acne under the skin, which can have quite a soothing effect if your acne has been painful.

Will it work for my skin type?PlusMinus

This peel is best for clients who have moderate to severe acne. However, it does also help to improve post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation and melasma.

What areas of my body can be treated?PlusMinus

The face is the most popular area for this treatment, however we can also treat the chest, back, shoulders and upper arms.

What results can I expect?PlusMinus

You can expect to see improvement in breakouts and congestion. Your skin will be clearer overall, and you should notice tighter pore sizes. You will also see an improvement in any visible scarring, as well as prevention of further scarring caused by breakouts.

Pre-treatment advicePlusMinus

You’ll need to prepare your skin for this treatment using DermaQuest products. Depending on your skin type, you’ll need to prepare for between two to six weeks. It’s important that your skin is in good health prior to this peel, so you’ll be advised to use homecare products to strengthen, hydrate and protect the skin’s barrier before starting your clear skin journey.

We recommend this preparation for your treatment to ensure you experience minimal recovery time. It will also help you achieve the best long-lasting results.

How many treatments will I need?PlusMinus

We recommend a minimum of 6 treatments, one every 4 weeks, followed by maintenance suggested by practitioner.


Aftercare advice and a great homecare kit is essential as they hold the key to maintaining your results at home. We always recommend a hydrating serum, such as DermaQuest’s B5 Hydrating Serum. We also advise using an advanced day and night routine such as the Obagi360 System Kit. It is important to start introducing everyday sun protection to protect your skin. It should be combined with a Retinol in the evening to resurface and refine the skin. Also use SPF, DermaQuest’s BHA Cleanser and DermaQuest’s DermaClear Serum.


Q: What happens during my treatment?
A: Your skin will be cleansed before the peel is applied to it. When the Modified Jessner’s Peel is applied, your skin will feel hot, with a spiky, itchy sensation. Your skin will go pink and a light frosting will form.

Q: What will happen after the treatment?
A: You will experience skin peeling, with larger flakes of skin, rather than sheets. Your skin will be back to normal 7-10 days after the treatment.
