benefits of microdermabrasion

A course of microdermabrasion can be used to give your skin a healthy glow or to target more specific requirements such as fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, sun damage & acne. Post treatment your skin continues to improve due to increased collagen & elastin production.

As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion is quick, convenient and painless, immediately restoring younger, smoother looking skin without the need for chemicals, lasers or injectables. The treatment exfoliates the skin and leaves your skin feeling and looking brighter.

Microdermabrasion benefits include:


A single SkinBase™ treatment can remove up to three times the number of dead skin cells in a single session than other exfoliating treatments. It can also help to improve the appearance of a number of skin conditions, leaving your skin feeling smooth and fresh.

Improves skin tone and texture

After having a series of microdermabrasion treatments, you should notice an improvement in the tone and texture of your skin. As a deep exfoliation treatment that works by removing the top layer of skin, microdermabrasion can also soften fine lines and wrinkles. If you have acne scarring, you can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of scars.

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 its convenience and effectiveness.

Enhanced product absorption

Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin from your face and, once these are gone, and your pores are clear, your skin will be able to absorb your skincare products much better.

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. Whether you have normal, combination, acne-prone or sensitive skin, microdermabrasion can help!

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.

Client Testimonial: “I’d tried all sorts of treatments to get rid of my wrinkles and sagging skin particularly on my left cheek. Nothing has ever worked. Microneedling and caci being just 2 of those. When Jo told me of the collagen lift it was a last stop before a face lift. I am amazed at the results, I don’t focus on my wrinkles when I look in the mirror anymore as they aren’t noticeable! Jo has worked wonders on my skin and I will continue to have the treatment as it not only works but it isn’t painful like the others and it’s actually relaxing.”
