Microdermabrasion is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. It’s being advanced as an “instant facelift” — an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels and Botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery.
Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Many different products and treatments use this method, including medical procedures, salon treatments and creams and scrubs that you apply yourself at home. It’s usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands.
Despite being so straightforward, microdermabrasion is suitable for a whole range of skin problems such as:
- Fine lines, scars and wrinkles
- Acne prone skin
- Sun damage an uneven skin tone
- Age spots
Great to give your skin a fresh, young looking glow after as little as one session.
