Chemical peels remain a popular for treatment and rejuvenation of the skin. Just because chemical peels are seen as a cosmetic treatment, there is no reason why dads can’t enjoy the benefits of a chemical peel too. Stuck for a father’s day gift— why not consider getting dad a series of chemical peels to detoxify, refresh and rejuvenate his skin?
MYTH 1: Chemical peels are for women
Men are also exposed to environmental factors that can promote aging and irritation, and they should take care of their skin too. Chemical peels work equally as well on male skin, and they can benefit from resurfacing treatments to improve the appearance of their skin.
MYTH 2: Chemical peels are dangerous
This is partially true. Chemical peels can be dangerous if used by unqualified persons or untrained professionals. Find a clinic that specialises in skincare and dermatological procedures to ensure safety.
MYTH 3: It is better to go for natural products and chemical peels are not natural
Chemical peels have proven safety and effectiveness when used properly. Remember natural does not guarantee safety or effectiveness. If you prefer to use natural products, there are chemical peels available on the market that are fruit acid based.
MYTH 4: Men get enough exfoliation through shaving
Shaving does mildly exfoliate the skin, but it cannot target the deeper layers of skin. Chemical peels go deeper that the top layers of skin and come in superficial, superficial-medium and medium depth types of peels. They can target skin concerns that are much deeper than surface dryness.
MYTH 5: Your skin will peel off and you need time off work
In general, men’s skin is also a bit tougher than female skin and the side effects of a chemical peel may less severe. Overall, most people do not experience visible skin peeling and usually the immediate effects are far more subtle. This only occurs with very strong medical grade peels which are uncommonly used. You will be able to return to work after the procedure.
