Okay so we know you can’t get booked in for a facial just yet, but a bit of forward planning doesn’t hurt. We are personally having major withdrawals from the lack of attention our face is getting and we are ready to book as soon as we get the green light! So here we tell you all about our favourite facial, SkinBase microdermabrasion.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion, meaning literally ‘small skin wearing away’ is an intense exfoliating treatment that uses tiny crystals to buff away the very outer layer of skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath. SkinBase microdermabrasion treatment also benefits from a vacuum action which stimulates the micro-circulation and increases blood flow to the treatment area.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion Treatment
There are multiple benefits to the skin meaning microdermabrasion is the perfect solution for a number of skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, congested skin, and dull, tired-looking skin. Microdermabrasion benefits include; deep exfoliation for clean, clear skin, improved skin tone, stimulates collagen and elastin production and speeds up cell renewal.
It is also very effective for more stubborn skin concerns including acne, acne scarring, and pigmentation. Microdermabrasion treatment for acne sufferers is very effective, unblocking clogged pores, increasing blood flow to the area and promoting healing to remove pigmentation caused by spots. How often you have microdermabrasion treatments will affect the results you achieve. We recommend a course of 6-8 facials carried out at intervals of 7-10 days. For acne and acne scarring, more treatments may be required up to a maximum of 20 in a course.
Microdermabrasion aftercare is also important to achieve the best results from a course of treatments. Your skin will benefit from regular applications of moisturiser and use an SPF to protect the freshly exfoliated skin from the elements. Our site has lots of microdermabrasion before and after results so you can see the results our SkinBase therapists are achieving. Find your closest SkinBase salon now…
