Looking younger often requires standing next to something much older, such as a brontosaur femur or the future. Find an easier way to save face with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a Jessner chemical peel at Contour Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery Center’s Rancho Mirage or Palm Springs locations (a $125 value).
Led by Dr. Timothy Jochen, Contour Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery Center’s trained specialists dusts off weary features with chemical peels designed to exfoliate surface-dulling cells and reveal the smoother, softer skin beneath. After gently cleansing the areas to be treated, deft hands apply a topical solution of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol with ethanol before rinsing it away a few minutes later. Jessner formulations achieve medium-peel depth, making results more noticeably effective than quick lunchtime peels but less irritating than sculpting an entirely new face out of peach skins. Postpeel results delight mirror-trapped selves with a soft glow, reduced hyperpigmentation, and faded sun damage. Clients should slather newly smoothed veneers with regular infusions of moisturizer and sunscreen to retain suppleness and prevent skin from evaporating. Minor peeling may continue for a few days after treatment.
