Skinbase Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It is the leading skincare treatment in the UK & Ireland for complete skin rejuvenation.

The SkinBase™ Facial is chemical free and non-invasive yet achieves amazing results revealing younger, healthier looking skin from the very first treatment. The skin’s appearance is further improved through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.

Frequently asked questions

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

During a Microdermabrasion treatment, 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

What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?

Microdermabrasion treats a variety of skin related problems including acne and acne scarring, dull and tired skin, pigmentation, blemishes and the effects of ageing skin including wrinkles and fine lines

What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?

In as little as 30 minutes a Microdermabrasion Facial will firm up, revitalise and leave you with more youthful looking skin. During a course of treatments, wrinkles and fine lines will disappear, acne and acne scarring will be significantly reduced and dull and tired skin will be restored to glowing health. Effectiveness A single SkinBase™ treatment can remove up to three times the number of dead skin cells in a single session than other exfoliating treatments. Better Skin for Longer Microdermabrasion encourages cell renewal, which means your skin will benefit from improved elasticity, a smoother texture and reduced signs of ageing. Zero Recovery Time Unlike many skin rejuvenation treatments, Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, so requires zero recovery time. It is often referred to as the ‘lunchtime Facial’ because of the convenience and effectiveness. Everyone Can Benefit! Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types, and therapists will assess your skin before advising on the number of treatments you will need. Flexible to Suit Individual Skin Types The treatment settings are widely adjustable; meaning therapists are able to tailor the treatment to individual skin types and problems. The SkinBase™ Facial uses safe, non-allergenic crystals and is suitable for all skin types. Book a consultation with your therapist to hear all the benefits SkinBase™ Facial Microdermabrasion has for you. 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.

Are There Any Downsides to Microdermabrasion?

A correctly performed procedure by a fully qualified Microdermabrasion therapist will result in nothing more than the skin feeling tight, occasionally with a mild redness. These effects will normally subside within 24 hours of the treatment. Sometimes Microdermabrasion can trigger a healing crisis in problematic skin, such as an acne breakout in acne sufferers or pimples for those with congested skin. This is a sign that the treatment is taking effect. This temporary reaction will subside and great improvements will be seen over subsequent treatments. Higher intensities can cause an uneven lightening effect in darker skin tones. Your therapist should use a lower intensity treatment on these skin types. Those who are pregnant or who have rosacea should not have Microdermabrasion treatments.
