There are lots of things you can do to protect your skin from environmental damage, and minimise any signs of ageing. However, you can not prevent 100% of damage. A course of Microdermabrasion facials can help to repair damage that has slipped through over the years. Decreasing levels of collagen accelerates damage occurring to maturing skin after the age of 25. The extent of skin damage will vary person to person, so we recommend a microdermabrasion treatment course to ensure the best results. Let’s take a look at some potential damage that can be treated with a course of SkinBase Microdermabrasion.
Hyperpigmentation can appear on the skin as an uneven skin tone, dark spots or patches of darker skin. Pigmentation issues are usually caused by excess sun exposure, and mainly appear on the parts of your body that are open to the elements. Particularly, the face, arms, hands, neck and décolletage. It can also be caused by the ageing process, acne and hormone fluctuations. A microdermabrasion treatment course performed weekly allows progressive results. Throughout the treatments, the exfoliation will work down the epidermal layers to remove pigmentation. A full consultation with a SkinBase Therapist is required. Pigmentation can be tricky to treat and your therapist will be able to recommend the best course of action.
Dull Skin & Blocked Pores
As we age, the skin cell renewal process slows down. This means the skin can become dull and lacklustre, as dead cells stay on the surface of the skin for up to 84 days – instead of revealing fresh, new skin after 28 days. The sluggish cell renewal process, along with sweat, oils and toxins in the air can all lead to blocked pores and blackheads. A course of microdermabrasion will unclog the pores and prevent an accumulation of dead skin for a healthier glow.
Over time, our skin loses its natural elasticity and hydration, becoming dry and crepey. Collagen production slows down, causing the skin to lose its firmness, and fine lines and wrinkles are increasingly visible. We recommend a microdermabrasion treatment course to smooth the skin, boost circulation and increase product absorption.
Why Do We Recommend a Microdermabrasion Treatment Course?
Having regular sessions of Microdermabrasion will effectively work on whatever your skin concerns are. You do not have to wait until your skin is more mature. A course of microdermabrasion in your early 20s is a great preventative method to keep the skin smooth and glowing for longer. Teenagers suffering with acne will also benefit from a course of microdermabrasion treatments.
You’ll see an improvement in your skin after the first treatment. If you continue with Microdermabrasion sessions over time your skin will continually look better. During a course of Microdermabrasion facials, your blood circulation will increase, and as will collagen production. Your skin will be firmer and more hydrated, meaning you look younger and fresher.
