The SkinBase™ ‘Definitive Guide to Microdermabrasion’ has been created by beauty industry professionals and is packed full of everything you need to know about our award-winning treatment.
Microdermabrasion for Pigmentation
SkinBase Microdermabrasion for pigmentation is a gentle, effective exfoliation treatment designed to improve the appearance and feel of the skin. Microdermabrasion sloughs away the outermost layer of dead skin cells and debris off the skin, revealing the fresher, brighter skin below.
What To Expect?
During a treatment of Microdermabrasion, your SkinBase therapist uses a handheld device to direct a stream of exfoliating crystals across the skin. The crystals exfoliate the skin, and abrade away any dead skin cells. Then, the handset suctions the debris off the skin. Any superficial pigmentation on the epidermis will also be exfoliated away, for a more even skin tone. If you commit to a course of sessions, the Microdermabrasion process will enable deeper pigmentation to move up to the surface, where it can be removed during treatment. Your SkinBase therapist will also be able to adjust the intensity of the treatment as your skin adjusts to the exfoliation, enabling a deeper rejuvenation.
Microdermabrasion for Pigmentation: Benefits
Microdermabrasion for pigmentation has a number of benefits, making it the ideal option for skin rejuvenation.
(1) Reduction of Pigmentation
Microdermabrasion is an intense exfoliation treatment. It can significantly lighten the appearance of pigmentation, such as age spots and sunspots, for a more even-toned complexion.
(2) No Downtime
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment, so requires no downtime. Nicknamed “the lunchtime facial” due to its convenience, you can easily treat your pigmentation and get right back to your day.
(3) Smoother Skin Texture
While Microdermabrasion for pigmentation works on discolouration, the exfoliation process also smooths out rough patches, fine lines, and acne scars, providing a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
(4) Minimise Pore Size
Regular Microdermabrasion treatments will help to minimise the appearance of enlarged pores, for a more refined and youthful-looking complexion.
(5) Enhanced Collagen Production
Microdermabrasion for pigmentation is also beneficial for collagen production. The dual action of exfoliation and suction stimulates collagen and elastin production, improving the overall elasticity and firmness of the skin during a course of treatment.
Who Is Microdermabrasion For?
Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types, and for use on the body. So, if you are suffering from pigmentation on the face or the body and you want to get rid of it, Microdermabrasion could be for you. It is important to be aware that pigmentation can be tricky to treat. If you have areas of stubborn, old or particularly dark pigmentation, you may require a more targeted treatment. IPL photorejuvenation works with your skin’s natural healing processes to remove the pigmentation at the source.
