The vacuum action during SkinBase Microdermabrasion works to stimulate the production of collagen, something we lose gradually as we age. This stimulation combined with the renewal of the skin 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 a course of Microdermabrasion. However, to treat problematic skin such as acne and acne scarring, and boost confidence, all age groups can benefit from the treatment. Under 16 year olds will need a parental co-sign in order to have a course of treatments.

Diagnosing your Skin Type

Dry skin types

skin types dry

Dry skin is caused by under-active oil glands that do not produce enough sebum to keep the skin naturally hydrated. It may have a dull appearance and feel dry and itchy. Dry skin must be hydrated regularly from the inside (drinking water) and outside with the likes of microdermabrasion treatments, hydrating creams and lotions. Removing the dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin using The SkinBase™ Facial speeds up the rate at which the skin would normally renew itself, revealing new, fresh skin and a radiant glow.

Sensitive skin types

Sensitive skins can be dry, normal or oily and are characterised by their delicacy. Sensitive skin frequently reacts adversely to environmental conditions and often requires special treatment in order to remain in good condition. Due to the make up of The SkinBase™ Facial, those with sensitive skin can be sure that any reddening of the skin will be temporary and will subside within 24-48 hours.

Combination skin types

Combination skin is the most common skin type. Combination skin is frequently characterised by an oily ‘T’ zone area that covers the forehead, nose and chin. While the skin around the cheeks, eyes and mouth is normal to dry. People with oily skin benefit from microdermabrasion as they can have different levels of intensity focused on different parts of their skin.

Oily skin types

skin types oily

Oily skin is produced by glands that produce too much sebum, resulting in skin that appears shiny and has some large open pores. Oily skin types are prone to develop blackheads and acne. Oily skin benefits hugely from microdermabrasion. Light moisturisers should be applied afterwards.

Normal skin types

Normal skin produces sebum at a moderate rate, resulting in a balanced state. Normal skin looks consistently plump, moist and vibrant. A great blessing but still requires no less attention. It benefits from regular microdermabrasion, cleansing, toning and moisturising.

Mature skin types

skin types mature

Mature skin becomes dry as sebaceous glands become less active. Skin loses elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Skin appears thinner with broken capillaries, especially on the cheek area and around the nose. Blood circulation becomes poor, which interferes with the skin nutrition making skin appear sallow. Mature skin must be hydrated well through drinking water, using nourishing moisturisers and having regular microdermabrasion treatments.

The SkinBase™ Facial is progressive rather than aggressive, so skin layers are gently removed over a course of treatments. With treatments ideally being carried out every 7 – 10 days, each treatment can be increased in intensity. This will make sure the microdermabrasion exfoliation reaches deeper layers of the skin and allows for acne scarring to be removed, pigmentation lifted and fine lines smoothed. Whoever you are,The SkinBase™ Facial will help you to attain smoother, youthful looking skin.*

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.”
