A JetPeel facial is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a newly invented jet propulsion technology to peel off the skin’s top layers to deliver nutrients to the deeper skin layers.
The procedure is 100% noninvasive. In addition, it’s an FDA-approved procedure that’s been consistently gaining popularity over the last few years.
The JetPeel Infusion Facial uses air pressure to infuse anti-aging ingredients like peptides, retinol, plant-based stem cells, concentrated vitamins and hyaluronic acid 4 mm into the skin. It’s comparable to microneedling; however, it’s a superior technology that gives instant results without the downtime, redness and irritation.
You stand to gain all the benefits you can derive from other treatments such as HydraFacial and Dermal infusion with a JetPeel facial. However, unlike most other chemical exfoliators, the JetPeel is gentle. In fact, people with sensitive skin or other skin conditions like rosacea or acne can comfortably undergo the procedure.
Read on to learn more about the JetPeel system including the benefits, how it works, how much it costs, and how safe it is.
What Are the Benefits of a JetPeel Facial?
Many people wonder what more they can gain from a JetPeel system that’s different from what other skin rejuvenation options offer. Here are some benefits this treatment option offers:
1. Treats Acne
JetPeel has been linked with helping treat and even prevent acne. How? Through deep and thorough cleaning of the pores and peeling of the skin.
In addition, it helps the body deliver serum to the lower skin surfaces. One ingredient present in serum is salicylic acid, which can help with managing acne.
2. Refreshes the Skin
The JetPeel system involves skin exfoliation. Ultimately, this gives the skin a refreshed and smooth look and feel post-treatment.
Additionally, exfoliation is essential in helping reduce any discoloration on the skin or clogged pores, promoting an even skin tone.
3. Reduces Signs of Aging
Signs of aging such as lost elasticity or wrinkles are a huge concern to many. Fortunately, if you undergo a JetPeel facial, it can help reduce such conditions.
Like other chemical treatments, the JetPeel system works by stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in a younger look and feel. The procedure does the following:
- Improves circulation
- Tightens and lifts loose skin
- Decreases the appearance of pores
- Hydrates your skin
Some studies associate this technology with several other benefits besides facial skin treatment.
For example, according to one study, JetPeels can be pretty effective in delivering minoxidil into the scalp during the treatment of persons dealing with baldness.
In another study, researchers established the technology can effectively deliver local anesthesia into the patient’s skin during a medical procedure.
Is JetPeel Safe?
If properly administered, the JetPeel is generally safe. Hence, it’s a procedure that suits any person wanting to rejuvenate their face.
Still in doubt about whether this facial treatment is safe enough? Well, here are some facts about the treatment to put your mind at ease:
- It causes no damage to your skin
- It’s completely noninvasive
- It causes no flaking or irritation
- The procedure is painless
- No downtime
- The results are visible almost immediately
That said, just like any other treatment, one may experience some side effects, but it rarely happens. Some of these side effects include:
- Cellulitis: An infection of your dermis
- Enlargement of lymph nodes
- Formation of cysts or pustules
- No peeling
What About Pregnant Women?
Doctors don’t recommend these types of facials for pregnant women.
One reason why the JetPeel facial is not suitable for pregnant women is that during pregnancy, the skin is highly sensitive. Additionally, JetPeel introduces serums that might have ingredients harmful to the fetus.
How Does the JetPeel Facial Treatment Work?
Your skin consists of two layers: an upper layer called the epidermis, and a lower layer called the dermis.
The dermis is made up of primarily collagen, the protein responsible for your skin’s elasticity and structure. Collagen highly influences aging. In fact, if you ever wondered what causes aging, it’s a reduction in collagen levels. The lesser it is, the more your skin ages.
So, during the procedure, a highly pressurized saline and oxygen jet penetrate your dermis, delivering nutrients, cleansers, and serums. The procedure involves the following:
- The jet removes any natural debris in your skin and exfoliates all dead skin cells. In the process, it also oxygenates the skin tissue, stimulating micro-circulation.
- Superficial removal of dead skin layers from your skin surface, a process known as jet exfoliation, occurs. Here vitamins, glycolic acid, and aloe vera are infused, allowing for a very effective gentle peeling.
- The last step, jet infusion, involves delivering nutrients, cleansers, and serums into your dermal skin layer. The infusions depend on the skin condition you’re treating. Examples of serum are Vitamin C, salicylic acid, Vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and vitamins A and E.
How It Appears Post-Treatment
Immediately after the doctor completes the procedure, the results are evident. You can see how refreshed, smooth, hydrated, bright, and glowing your skin looks. You’ll look rejuvenated!
How Often Should You Get the Treatment?
It’s worth noting that JetPeel facial results don’t last long. For continuous results, you need to get the treatment from time to time.
Several factors determine how frequently you should get the treatment. Nonetheless, most experts recommend you get three to six treatments every two to four weeks.
How Do You Care for Your Skin After a JetPeel Facial?
There’s no specific aftercare set in stone that you must follow after a JetPeel treatment.
Your skin will look smooth and feel refreshed immediately after treatment. And, although there may be some redness, you’ll be okay within one hour.
The only requirement from your cosmetics expert may be to avoid washing your face or applying makeup six hours post-treatment to allow for complete absorption of the serums.
How Much Does a JetPeel Cost?
The cost of a JetPeel facial treatment varies from one geographical location to another.
For instance, while one clinic in Cambridge, Massachusetts, charges $125 per treatment and $300 for a three-package treatment, a salon in Rochester, New York, quotes its price as $159 per session and $435 for three sessions.
It’s essential to note that it’s highly unlikely that your insurance will cover the treatment as is the case with most cosmetic procedures.
Anybody can get a JetPeel facial treatment. That’s because it’s safe, simple, and gentle enough, even on sensitive skin. Whether it’s dry skin, sun damage, enlarged pores, wrinkles & fine lines, uneven skin tones, under-eye bags, loose skin, oily and congested pores, or acne, the JetPeel is highly effective.
