I'm 50 and my esthetician recommended to me. It does have a gentle setting. I only use mine once per day.
Exfoliation is good for any age. It helps remove dead skin cells and can help keep pores from becoming clogged and leave skin with a refreshed and clean feeling.
Clogged pores can result in blackheads and acne. Furthermore, when pores are clogged, they appear larger. So, if you're worried about the size of your pores, although you can't reduce their actual size (genetics is the biggest factor in pore size), you can help diminish their appearance by keeping them clog-free.
In addition to the immediate visual benefits of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells speeds up the skin renewal process, allowing smoother, healthier skin cells to take their place [source: Crawford]. Not only will this help with fine lines and wrinkles, but it will help to ease discoloration as well.
