Question: I am a 43-year-old male. I am a little embarrassed because I feel like men do not really get this sort of thing done, but I have some fine wrinkles around my mouth that I am not happy about. My sister recently had microdermabrasion done and she was telling me that I should get it. Would this work for me? How many treatments would I be looking at total?
Answer: Microdermabrasion can provide a very small amount of wrinkle reduction so it is definitely an option for you and it has absolutely no downtime. Microdermabrasions are typically recommended as a routine maintenance type of treatment and we recommend that they be performed every 1 to 2 months. If your wrinkles are more significant a longer term solution may be either wrinkle fillers or a laser resurfacing type procedure. Ultimately, an evaluation would be recommended so that you problem area can be examined and a customized treatment plan can be created just for you.
