Microderm Abrasion

Skinbase Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion (MD) is a chemical-free, non-invasive treatment that uses ultra-fine micro-crystals to exfoliate the skin and removes impurities. MD achieves amazing results, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin from the very first treatment. With each subsequent treatment, the intensity of the microdermabrasion can be increased, reaching deeper layers and successfully removing acne scarring, lifting pigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
During Microdermabrasion, thousands of tiny crystals are jetted across the skin to gently remove the outer layer of old skin cells and reveal new, fresh rejuvenated skin. The crystals and cells are then removed using a vacuum action which also stimulates blood flow and production of collagen and elastin to the treated area.

 The Secret to Glowing Skin.

 A non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation, regular exfoliation with Microdermabrasion does wonders for dull and lacklustre complexions. To get the most out of your at-home skincare products, you need to remove old build-up before anti-ageing creams and serums can really penetrate and take effect. This treatment does this by using tiny crystals to slough away old skin cells, clear blocked pores and polish the face. An immediate improvement can be seen after treatment.
Exfoliation with MD provides a great base for even application of makeup. Mineral makeup can even be applied straight after treatment. MD has also been proven to enhance the barrier function of the skin, resulting in increased hydration.

Benefits of MD

 What skin problems can be treated?

Acne and Acne Scarring Microdermabrasion works by removing the top layer of dead skin cells from the skin's surface, making it particularly effective in treating acne. Eliminating dead skin cells unclogs pores and minimises sebum production, reducing the chance of new spots developing.

 Fine Lines and Wrinkles, ageing Skin

 As we age, elastin and collagen production starts to slow down. The vacuum action of the microdermabrasion treatment works to stimulate blood flow, promoting elastin and collagen production. The combination of collagen stimulation and increased skin renewal will improve the condition of the skin's surface, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Dull and Tied Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Normally skin renews itself approximately every 28 days. By removing the dead skin cells from the top layer of the epidermis, microdermabrasion speeds up the rate at which skin replenishes to reveal new, fresh skin and a radiant glow.

Cellulite 'orange peel effect'

Microdermabrasion can't cure cellulite, however, it will stimulate the circulation, improving blood flow to the area. To improve the appearance of cellulite, make sure you drink plenty of water and exercise regularly.

Pigmentation and Blemishes, Stretch Marks

Microdermabrasion can vastly improve the appearance of pigmentation and stretch marks. The microdermabrasion treatment promotes a "lifting and smoothing" effect, improving skin conditions and diminishing the appearance of stretch marks and discolouration.
The six-week course is a more holistic approach to skin rejuvenation. Through a combination of simple lifestyle changes and weekly microdermabrasion treatments, a younger more youthful you is only weeks away.
