Males Benefit from Microdermabrasion

May 2nd, 2014 • Posted by Lavender Spa • Permalink

Back in the day, grooming for men mainly consisted of haircuts from the barber and maybe a straight razor shave with a hot towel. More likely, the shaving took place at home in front of the bathroom mirror. Beyond a dash of after shave, skin care was exclusively a female thing. These days, regular guys are beginning to get hip to what women have always known -- when your skin looks good, you look good. Microdermabrasion is extremely effective for correcting large pores, oily skin and other minor skin problems common to men of all ages.

How Microdermabrasion Works

The basic procedure for microdermabrasion is the same for both men and women. Our esthetician begins by cleansing the face. The actual microdermabrasion procedure involves applying a fine layer of aluminum oxide crystals to the skin. The esthetician brushes away the crystals with a polishing instrument which also removes the top layer of skin. Acne scars, enlarged pores, age spots, roughness from sun damage and other surface skin problems diminish or disappear along with dead skin and debris.

Dramatic Results

While many women regularly engage in facials, exfoliation and other skin care treatments, until recent years, the same is not true for men. As a result, many men's faces are weighed down with dead skin and debris from years of neglect. Your favorite guy could obtain very dramatic results from his very first microdermabrasion procedure.

Microdermabrasion is also effective in dealing with men's unique skin issues. For instance, many  men find that microdermabrasion eliminates razor bumps when nothing else works. By allowing our esthetician to smooth away dead skin that traps ingrown beard hairs with regular microdermabrasion treatments, the man in your life can wear a beard because he wants to, not to avoid or cover up unsightly razor bumps.

No Pain, All Gain

Many men shy away from pain, and have no patience with long recovery periods. Microdermabrasion is painless and requires no downtime; another feature that makes microdermabrasion a guy-friendly procedure. With all its benefits, it is clear that microdermabrasion is no longer just for women - more and more men are adding professional microdermabrasion treatments to their regular skin care regimes.
