Jet Peel– pressure washing the face

September 30, 2012 Reviewed by Mark 8 Comments

The Jet Peel treatment has piqued my curiosity since my dermatologist’s office (Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, TN) began offering it in their Medi-Spa earlier this year. Recently, a special offer for the treatment was just too good to pass up, and since the summer heat has made my skin all the more oily, congested and pore clogged, this was a perfect time to give this a try.

While many different types of cosmetic peels have been available for years, their basic premise is to remove the top layer(s) of dead or damaged skin. Non-invasive, the Jet Peel is an all natural, virtually painless skin treatment procedure designed to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. Benefits from the procedure are: deep cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, oxygenates and micro-circulates the treated area. Jet Peel can help in treating clogged pores, acne and blackheads, scars, skin discoloration and multiple signs of aging. Also, there is no down time.

My esthetician began by evaluating my skin and asking about my skin concerns, and then demonstrated on my hand how it works. A hand held device that resembles a stylus sprays a high velocity jet stream of sterile saline solution and compressed oxygen on the skin. (The liquid/oxygen combination is the only thing that ever touches your skin.)

She cleansed my face and then gave it a quick once over with a Clarisonic brush. The treatment began in two stages. First, by going back and forth with the device, using sterile saline and working in small areas of the face. This is the exfoliation, cleansing, hydration and oxygenation portion. As the passes were made all I felt was a cool, light pressure sensation, which I actually found pleasantly relaxing. On problem areas such as clogged pores/blackheads, she made extra passes. The last step was my choice of an infusion of vitamin C, hyaluronic acid or a vitamin A and E combination which was applied in the same manner as the sterile saline. It only took about 45 minutes.

My end result was great –clogged pores and blackheads were gone, my skin plumped, glowing and now prepared to more readily absorb my favorite products. Although results are not equivalent to a deep chemical peel, this is a light peel that would be a good choice that could address several problems. One treatment may be enough for anyone just wanting to revitalize a dull complexion, while those experiencing acne breakouts or other concerns should ask about a series of treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart to attain their goal. Not only for the face, this treatment can also improve the appearance of the hands, chest, and other areas of the body.

Prices for the Jet Peel vary widely across the country when checked on the web (and I also noticed it is even offered in the UK and Dubai), so you would want to check your local area, however I paid $70 for the entire treatment. (The usual price is $100 for the peel alone or $150 if you add the vitamin infusion). This treatment is for guys or gals, and I would recommend it as a great way to help rejuvenate your skin.

    Hi Stephanie - Since I haven't had a Sonopeel I can't say for sure, but just checking the description on the internet it sounds very similar and the results yielded seem to be the same. If you do treat yourself to one, please review it for us and let us know how you liked it.

    Angela - you're right, it would be great between seasons, or as that pick-me-up we all need sometimes or as my esthetician suggested just before an event such as a wedding, photo shoot, reunion, etc. and she shared with me that it's a favorite of celebrities.
    Do share with us how you like it.

    Mark, thanks for your review and for introducing me to a new, coveted, procedure. This sounds like the perfect between-season, skin-polishing treatment. I'm off to do some google-searching to see if/where it's available in the Bay Area.

    Hi Mark, funny that we should both write about our facial treatments in the same week. Jet Peel sounds as if it might good bacne.

    My esthetician, Ildi Pekar, offered New Yorkers a 15% discount if they mention my name. I wonder if Gold Skin Care might do the same for our readers in the Nashville area.
