Microdermabrasion uses fine crystals as an abrasive to gently exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells. The vacuum action of the machine stimulates circulation and promotes increased blood flow. The results? Firmer, clearer, younger-looking skin!
What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?
Acne & Acne Scarring
Microdermabrasion is one of the leading beauty treatments used to tackle acne and acne scarring. Whether it’s active acne, blackheads or scarring, microdermabrasion encourages collagen to form, improving the appearance and texture of your skin and reducing acne scarring. Many people see an improvement after just one treatment. Victoria, your SkinBase™ therapist will advise on how many treatments you are likely to need.
Fine lines & Wrinkles
As we get older our skin’s ability to turn over new healthy skin cells slows down. Sun damage, and even everyday facial movements like smiling or frowning cause faint lines to surface and deepen into wrinkles over time. Skin begins to age after the age of 25, and microdermabrasion helps remove ageing skin cells and damaged skin, encouraging collagen to form and reveal fresher, younger looking skin, with significant wrinkle and line reduction.
As you age, the connective tissue and collagen in your face isn’t as strong or supportive, so we lose the ‘plumpness’ and elasticity we once had. This in turn casuses fine lines and wrinkles to form, giving us the appearance of ageing skin. Microdermabrasion promotes collagen to form by removing the top layer of dead (ageing) skin cells using a fine jet of abrasive crystals. This results in smoother, younger looking skin.
Dull & Tired Skin
Feeling pale, noticing dark circles or feeling like your skin is sagging or lacking its usual ‘sparkle’? Whilst ‘tired and dull skin’ might not be a recognised medical term or condition, it’s a problem we’re sure every single one of us can resonate with. Dryness and lack of proper exfoliation both contribute to skin cell debris, which is why regular microdermabrasion facials by a qualified beauty therapist will help boost circulation and completely transform your dull & tired skin.
Uneven Skin Tone
Very few of us are blessed with a completely even skin tone – many of us suffer from red patches, skin spots and blotchy skin – all of which contribute to having an uneven skin tone. Because most uneven skin tones are superficial, microdermabrasion is usually the first treatment option people go for.It uses a jet of fine crystals that are gently blasted across the uneven skin. This directly affects the outer layer of skin causing it to break away, aiding in lightening or removing unwanted pigments and revealing a beautifully even skin tone beneath.
Stretch marks affect thousands of people, regardless of age or situation. Weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy or simply growing can all result in the fine silvery, long, fragmented scars that are sunken into the skin. Stretch marks are a result of a certain hormone failing to produce enough collagen and elastin fibres, the things that keep skin taut. Fine crystals from microdermabrasion encourage the elastin and collagen to form once again, successfully reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
Pigmentation & Blemishes
Whatever your age, there are few of us who haven’t experienced some sort of skin blemish, colour change or ‘pigmentation’. From sunburn to hormonal changes and infections, microdermabrasion will act as a treatment for your pigmentation, gently removing a layer of skin and removing the dark skin which has formed. The final result and the number of treatments depends on a number of factors including the type of lesion, skin type, the degree of sun tan, size and depth of the vessels and the location to be treated.
