There was a time when men were reluctant to get certain treatments done designed to improve their appearance. It was thought that visiting a cosmetic surgeon or having certain treatments done was just not a manly thing to do. Now, society has shifted its view of men who have treatments to reduce the signs of aging and to improve their overall appearance. It is now something that is accepted, and in certain industries, it is expected of men.
Chemical peels have proven to be an effective and non-invasive way for men to smooth the appearance of their skin and remove some of the signs of aging. Chemical peels work by resurfacing the face. They remove the outer layers of the facial skin that have been damaged by weather and other external substances.
Chemical peels are a great way for men to treat certain skin conditions, such as skin that has been damaged by the sun. Chemical peels can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Anyone who is dealing with pigment abnormalities or who has excessive scarring as a result of adolescent acne might also benefit from a chemical peel.

First, there is the Illuminize Peel. This is a very light chemical peel. Its goal is to gently improve the appearance of the skin by increasing the skin’s inner glow and appearance of radiance. The amount of actual skin peel that comes as a result of this procedure is minimal. This means that there is absolutely no recovery time. A person undergoing this procedure would be able to quickly improve their appearance before an upcoming special occasion.
The next option is the Vitalize Peel. This peel is exceptionally popular, and in some cases, it has been shown to help build collagen in the skin. As anyone who is concerned about their appearance knows, collagen is essential for soft, smooth looking skin. After the procedure is done, the skin will peel from between 3 to 5 days. However, once this process is done, an individual’s face is going to be noticeably brighter and noticeably smoother.
Patients with a wide variety of skin types can take advantage of this chemical peel. However, it is especially beneficial for those who have mild to moderate sun damage on their skin, who have wrinkles, and who are dealing with scars as a result of acne.
The Rejuvenize Peel is the strongest that SkinMedica offers. It is designed to penetrate the deep layers of the skin. This peel has been shown to help correct moderate to severe skin conditions. Included in this is severe sun damage, severe acne and acne scarring. Patients undergoing this procedure should expect to have light peeling for between five days to one week.
We live in a society where appearance is everything. This is not only true for women, but it is equally true for men. Any man who is concerned about the way that others see him would do well to take the time to look at chemical peels since they can increase his youthful appearance and revitalize the way he feels.
