Jessners is not a deep peel and won't help a skin depression

If you are trying to improve a depression in the skin, deeper resurfacing procedures can help, such as fractional CO2 lasers, deep chemical peels, or dermabrasion. Jessners solution is considered a very superficial peel, that might lighten some brown spots, but does not penetrate the skin deep enough to get collagen remodeling. The picture does not show me in enough detail what you are trying to correct, but Jessners will not intiate enough collagen remodeling to 'fill' a skin depression.
