Washing Face After Jessner Peel?

Thank you for your question. You can wash your face after a Jessner peel with a gentle cleanser and apply SPF 30 with zinc daily. Avoid using any exfoliating products for at least a week or until skin is healed and not peeling anymore. I hope this helps.

Washing your face after a Jessner's Peel

You can wash your face immediately after a Jessner's Peel with a gentle cleanser without causing any harm or compromising efficacy. However, you will get better results if you wait until the following day. This allows the peel as well as any products applied afterwards to penetrate the skin. Make sure to stay away from cleansers or creams containing any exfoliating agents for at least 3 days. Always apply a good moisturizer and sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher after cleansing.

Jessner's  peel is one type of superficial peels. There is no need for neutralization, (unlike the glycolic acid peels). You can wash your face a few minutes after the peel. This should have no effect on efficacy of the peel.
