Is Microdermabrasion for Men?
Microdermabrasion is the general buffing away of your top layer of skin (where all your dead skin cells are) to leave you with a fresh, rejuvenated look. For modern men who are serious about their grooming, Microdermabrasion is the perfect skin care treatment. Microdermabrasion works for men who are looking to:
- Treat acne
- Minimize pores and pits
- Treat pores filled with oil and blackheads
- Smooth out wrinkles and fine lines
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Your skin has three basic layers: the epidermis (outer layer with oldest, dead cells), the hypodermis (the middle layer with young cells) and the dermis (the deepest layer that generates new cells). What microdermabrasion does is exfoliate your skin while vacuuming up dead cells, encouraging your younger cells to the surface. The result? Reduced fine lines, minimized pores and scars, and an overall younger looking complexion.
