If you are considering a chemical peel for men, Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic provides many options that safely reduce rough skin texture including acne scarring. The word “chemical” has negative connotations, but many chemicals, including those in chemical peels are derived from natural sources. Not all chemicals are created equally. A chemical peel in trained hands is safe and beneficial to the skin, both as a remedy to problem skin and a preventative measure.
What Do Chemical Peels Treat?
Chemical peels will help improve the overall appearance of male skin, including:
- Fine wrinkles
- Skin dryness
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Acne and acne scarring
How Chemical Peels Work
Chemical peels help improve male skin by increasing the pH level which loosens dead and damaged skin cells, speeding up the natural process our bodies already perform: exfoliation. The sloughing or shedding of dead surface skin cells, reveals newer, smoother, unblemished skin beneath. Other benefits of chemical peels include the promotion of collagen production, uniform skin tone, tighter, firmer and younger looking skin.
Types of Chemical Peels for Men
There are similarities between all chemical peels in that they exfoliate the dead, damaged skin cells. The differences are mainly in the depth of the peel, and the ingredient used to cause the skin to shed cells through exfoliation. Chemical peels are often described as “light peels” or “deep peels” and of course there are skin peels that fall between the two extremes. A consultation will determine the best choice for your skin.

A HAPPY FACE
Shelley has always given me great service and that hasn’t changed. I’m finding that my skin just after 2 Microdermabrasions with the peel, my pores are looking smaller and my skin in general is looking finer. I have two more treatments which I look forward to and can’t wait to see how much more improvement I will see. I think I will try to continue this treatment on a regular basis. I believe it is recommended that I come in every 3 months now for this treatment once having 4 treatments close together.
