Think microdermabrasion is for women only? Hardly! The anti-aging treatment is increasingly popular among men, who are notorious for not taking care of their skin as well as their female counterparts. Microdermabrasion is one of the many services available through your West Hollywood dermatologists at The Kopelson Clinic, and offers a variety of benefits for both men and women.
Let’s check out some of the benefits microdermabrasion provides the males of the species:
Elimination Of Dead Skin
As mentioned above, most men aren’t nearly as diligent with their skincare as women. This results in serious buildup of dead skin, which leaves flesh looking old and dull. Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells to reveal smooth, youthful-looking skin.
Reduction In Acne And Acne Scars
Men often suffer from debilitating acne in their teens, and may continue to deal with the skin disorder well into adulthood. Male skin produces over twice as much sebum, or skin oil, as female skin, which increases the chances of acne flare-ups. Anabolic steroids and using the wrong razor/shave cream also contributes to acne and subsequent scarring. Microdermabrasion significantly lessens the appearance of superficial acne scars while also reducing the chances of future flare-ups. The procedure opens clogged pores, thus detoxifying the skin and making it easier for topical acne treatments to work.
Reduction In Sun Damage
Because men usually aren’t as meticulous about their skincare as women, they may forget to slather on the sunblock before heading outdoors. Years of sun exposure without protection results in serious sun damage, something that microdermabrasion helps with. The procedure reduces if not eliminates sun spots, wrinkles, and other types of sun damage.
Improved Skin Tone
Again, because of skincare neglect, older men often have pitted, rough, uneven skin. Microdermabrasion drastically improves skin tone via the lessening/removal of dead skin, sun damage, and scars, resulting in smooth, even-looking flesh.
Don’t let your skin tell your age! Make up for years of neglect by discussing microdermabrasion with the West Hollywood dermatologists at The Kopelson Clinic, and use the procedure as a starting point for a new, comprehensive skincare routine.
