Chemical Peels for Men

Dr. Dina Strachan of New York, NY, and her team at Aglow Dermatology believe that men also need to have a skincare routine that meets their needs and helps them tackle common skincare issues. One popular treatment for men is that of the chemical peel.

What is a chemical peel?

First and foremost, patients must have a better understanding of the goal of chemical peels. Chemical peels use a combination of ingredients on the skin to stimulate skin cell turnover. They may be either superficial or deep, depending on the needs of the patient–and how much downtime they can have.

What are the benefits of chemical peels for men?

Chemical peels are an effective treatment option for men with acne, razor bumps, hyperpigmentation (dark marks), acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun damage. Additionally, they can help even out skin tone and improve the texture of your skin. Some common ingredients used in chemical peels for men include glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, and trichloroacetic acid. These acids work to exfoliate the top layer of skin and encourage cell turnover for a more refreshed appearance. This is the primary goal of chemical peels, which allow for a more youthful, fresher look to the skin’s texture and tone while treating problematic conditions that impact the look of the skin. Men often like the quick benefits of a chemical peel and how it allows them the simplify their skin care routine.

Am I a good candidate for these chemical peel treatments?

As with any skincare treatment, you will want to speak with a professional dermatologist, such as Dr. Dina Strachan of Aglow Dermatology, before undergoing a chemical peel to ensure it is the right choice for you. During an evaluation, she can determine if you are a proper candidate for this or other skincare solutions and treatments available through her office.
