Skin Peels for Men in Washington, DC
Most wrinkles and visible signs of aging are caused by sun damage and the natural loss of skin elasticity. Over time, elastic fibers in the deep layers of the dermis lose strength, which allows the skin to sag and crease. For men, this can lead to a haggard, worn, or fatigued appearance. If you’re not ready for more invasive procedures or want to correct fine lines and wrinkles that aren’t treatable with surgery, we often recommend chemical skin peels to improve the appearance of your skin.
Types of Peels for Men
Male patients in Washington, DC can choose from a number of different peels to treat a variety of skin concerns. Micropeels are very light and gentle and require several repeated sessions to achieve the final result. These peels are ideal for men who wish to return to normal activity immediately. Deeper peels require only one application, as they penetrate the skin at a deeper level and yield more dramatic results. Deep peels require a bit more downtime and can produce crusting and peeling for up to two weeks.
The Jessner Peel removes superficial layers of skin to improve sun-damaged skin and reduce hyperpigmentation. The mild peeling agent used is effective and safe for all skin types.
The Jessner Peel is a great option for:
- Treating mild to severe acne
- Minimizing discoloration
- Reducing moderate wrinkles
- Improving the appearance of sun damage
The Jessner peel combines resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to result in deeper penetration and greater exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. This produces noticeable flaking and exfoliation in the following three to four days after the peel, revealing the healthier layer of skin within three to four days.
Because the Jessner Peel is ideal for patients with thicker skin, this peel is a popular and highly effective option for men. The face, neck, hands, and upper chest can all be treated.
Our Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel is a skin-resurfacing treatment that removes dead skin cells to reduce fine lines, minimize the appearance of age and sun spots, and improve skin tone and texture. The TCA peel is also an effective option for reducing the appearance of acne scars.
Depending on your needs, more than once TCA treatment may be required to achieve the best results. In this case, your treatments would be spaced two to three months apart.
The VI Peel is a specially formulated, medical-grade peel that improves the appearance of sun damage, acne, or visible signs of aging on the face, hands, or chest. This peel works from the inside out, helping to jump-start your collagen production and gradually improve the overall look and feel of your skin.
During a VI Peel, a unique chemical solution is applied to the skin. This removes damaged surface layers, allows healthy underlying skin to be revealed, and encourages collagen production within the tissue. The VI Peel is suitable for all skin types, is less painful than many other peels, doesn’t require much downtime, and allows patients to resume normal activity immediately.
You will see noticeable results within just a few days after treatment and, depending on your skin concerns, you may repeat treatment every three weeks for more dramatic improvement. Our skincare staff recommends receiving treatment a few times per year in addition to a healthy skincare routine at home to maintain your results and protect your skin against further damage.
