At our office in Andover, MA, we provide chemical peels at 3 levels (light, medium, and deep) to fit our men’s skin care needs and goals.
Light peels: You can have a light chemical peel on your lunch break from the office and then get back to your day. This peel will remove the top layer of skin (the epidermis), giving your complexion a brighter appearance.
Medium-depth peels: This chemical peel penetrates deeper into your skin, and are best for patients who have significant damage to their skin, such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues. It’s best to do this before the weekend.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep peel treatment, and it will require the most recovery time. This is an aggressive cosmetic treatment that could leave your face itchy, swollen, and peeling for several weeks. Patients who receive a deep peel may have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, significant acne scars, or deep-seated scars. As this strength of peel is typically uncomfortable for most patients, we will provide you with mild anesthesia prior to your procedure.
