I don't think they are worth it.
Use a buff puff in the shower and a good skin care regimen including a moisturizer. If you go to a gym, take in steam in the steam room.
I think the reason why women like them so much is because they get pampered; women's smooth skin is due to estrogen.
Chemical peel facials are a little different, they slough off the superficial layer of skin to reveal fresh shiny new skin. Consider doing one of these before the prom, a wedding, or other event when you want your skin to glow. But the effects are temporary, in a week or so, your skin will go back to being dull again.
(NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH A DERMATOLOGIST-ADMINISTERED CHEMICAL PEEL WHICH CAN TAKE A WEEK OR TWO TO HEAL BECAUSE IT REMOVES MORE LAYERS OF THE DERMIS) -can be used to smooth complexion from acne scars, wrinkles, etc.
