What is Jetpeel?
Jetpeel is a technology that combines compressed gases (air, medical O2 or CO2) with active ingredients to deliver solutions deep into the skin without needles or without injuring the epidermis. It is a one of a kind technology that can effectively treat and prevent various skin conditions and concerns without any downtime.
How deep do the active ingredients penetrate the skin?
The combination of the gases with the serums form a subsonic jetstream of microdroplets that are delivered up to 4mm deep into the skin at a speed of 447 mph (720 km/h) without causing injury to the skin.
What skin conditions are commonly treated with Jetpeel?
Jetpeel has been shown to prevent aging of the skin and can help restore the normal youthfulness of the skin with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vegetable stem cells. Antioxidant serums like vitamin C can help even out the skin tone and brighten brown spots and pigmentation. Specific acne serums are very helpful in treating inflammation and pimples associated with acne and hormonal changes. All skin types and skin colors can do this procedure, even the most sensitive skin types, because there is no damage to the overlying skin. Even PRP (platelet rich plasma) can be delivered into the skin (to improve fine lines, pore size, wrinkles and skin texture) or the scalp (for both male and female pattern hair loss).
How many treatment sessions are recommended?
Generally we recommend 4-6 treatment sessions for best results. Treatment protocols can vary, especially when other technologies are involved in a protocol. Jetpeel combines very nicely with other laser treatments, and will immediately improve skin quality, even if performed in the same session. There is no downtime or pain with this treatment. Dr. Munk and his team will recommend the protocol that is best suited for your skin goals.
Can Jetpeel be done prior to an event (wedding, celebration…)?
Jetpeel is such a gentle treatment, we recommend doing it on the day of your event to improve your glow. Your skin will be more even, smooth, soft and will have a magical glow on the day of your event.
What are the different steps in the Jetpeel process?
All steps are carried out with the jetpeel technology and are done sequentially. Step 1 is to stimulate the lymphatic drainage of the skin, to stimulate micro-circulation. Step 2 is exfoliation, where either a mild exfoliant or a glycolic serum is infused with the Jetpeel to clean the pores and remove natural and environmental skin debris. Step 3 is infusion, where the appropriate serum is infused up to 4mm into the skin.
What are the benefits of Jetpeel PRP ?
PRP is derived from your own blood, so it is considered a very natural treatment. There are growth factors and nutrients that help restore youthfulness in the skin and improve collagen remodeling, pore size, texture and fine lines. It is great for undereye aging, and somebody seeking natural skin improvement. It is also beneficial to prevent thinning of the hair and to even stimulate regrowth, so it is a natural way to help keep your hair. The benefit of Jetpeel PRP is that it is delivered without any needles, downtime or discomfort. A much more comfortable and painless procedure with the same incredible results!
