Microdermabrasion

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures performed today. The skin is instantly rejuvenated by means of mechanical skin exfoliation without the use of chemicals or lasers and it’s virtually painless. It offers a modern and effective alternative to chemical and laser peels and can be combined with other treatments to help achieve the desired results. It’s most commonly used to treat the face and neck and immediately restores smoother looking skin and reduces the appearance of superficial wrinkles and scars, sun damage, large pores, acne and age spots.


How does it work?

The SkinBase microdermabrasion Facial™ is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It's the leading skincare treatment in the UK & Ireland for complete skin rejuvenation, available at over 1,600 leading salons. A fine jet of abrasive crystals gently removes dead skin cells layer by layer and a vacuum action lifts away the debris, stimulating the blood flow and encouraging collagen and elastin formation that results in firmer, revitalised and youthful looking skin. Wrinkles disappear, acne scarring is reduced and dull and tired skin is completely banished - sometimes after just one treatment.


What should I expect?

Effects are usually seen after the first treatment, with ongoing improvements seen week after week during a course. Your SkinBase therapist will perform an initial consultation and recommend a course length to you. Usually, this will consist of 6 to 8 treatments, 7 to 10 days apart. Skin problems such as acne or acne scarring, or deeper forehead wrinkles may require up to 20 weeks to achieve full improvements. After a course is completed, a single monthly treatment will maintain your skin's improvements.


Who is it for?

The beauty of The SkinBase Facial™ is it really can help everyone to attain more beautiful, revitalised skin. Over 80% of the population will see a benefit from The SkinBase Facial™.

The vacuum action during The SkinBase Facial™ works to stimulate the production of collagen, something we lose gradually as we age. This stimulation and skin's renewal improves the condition of the skin's surface – helping to target ageing skin,stretch marks, pigmentation, cellulite, dry and dehydrated skin and acne scarring.

For anti-ageing treatments, all skin types and tones from ages 28 and up will benefit the most from The SkinBase Facial™. However, for problematic skin such as Acne Scarring all age groups can benefit. Under 16 year olds will need a parental co-sign however.
