Microdermabrasion – More than a facial treatment

SkinBase microdermabrasion is more than a facial treatment. If you have dry flaky skin, blemishes or pigmentation on the body then microdermabrasion might be what you need. Exfoliating skin is really important and helps to stimulate new skin cell production and get rid of old skin cells. MD is particularly effective at doing this.

More than a facial

With the New Year looming, get your new year health kick started with a microdermabrasion body treatment, slough away that old dead skin and invigorate your skin. Remember microdermabrasion is more than a facial, here are a few of the body treatment options you could try…

Microdermabrasion Pedicure

They serve us well but our poor feet deserve some love and attention. Microdermabrasion involves the use of a stream of non-allergenic crystals to unsettle the layer of skin closest to the surface of the feet, before using suction to remove the crystals and the dead skin. With a SkinBase Microdermabrasion Pedicure, you can sit back and relax while one of our wonderful therapists works their magic to slough away hard skin, invigorate and stimulate circulation, and get those feet smoother than they’ve ever been. Your feet will thank you for it. We promise.

Back Treatment

During treatment, a vigorous jet of crystals will slough away old skin and imperfections. Meanwhile, the powerful vacuum action will unblock pores and stimulate blood flow to the area to promote healing and improve the appearance of the skin. The treatments begin quite gently, to give your skin time to adapt to this deep exfoliation, but as the course progresses, your therapist will be able to increase the intensity and reach deeper layers of the skin and clean deeper into the pores. By deeply cleansing your skin, Microdermabrasion eliminates blocked pores, one of the key causes of spots, and it also helps to stimulate the skin’s healing processes too, to reduce the scars left behind.

Back of the arms

Ever wondered what the bumps on the back of your arms are called? ‘Keratosis Pilaris’ is their technical name. They form when too much keratin builds up in the skin’s hair follicles. During microdermabrasion exfoliating crystals and a vacuum action help to remove the build up. The hair follicle is cleared of debris leaving skin smooth and clear.

Stretch Marks

Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen and elastin production to help contract the stretch marks so they appear smaller and thinner. Over a course of treatment, the level of the skin surrounding the stretch marks is also reduced to be closer to the stretch mark itself, this also makes them less visible. 

So you see, microdermabrasion is so much more than a facial. Fancy giving one of these treatments a try? Find your nearest therapist now

Why do we get wrinkles?

Wrinkles. Wrinkles around the mouth, forehead wrinkles, wrinkles round the eye. Urgh. Wherever they are, all we know is that some (most!) women see them as the bane of their existence, and they actually go through all means they could possibly afford just to get those wrinkles off their faces, ranging from expensive creams to microdermabrasion, Botox or even surgery.

Our culture and society is so youth-oriented that wrinkles, especially on women, have become totally undesirable.

Why do we get them and how can we stop them?

SkinBase Focus: Acne & Acne Scarring

We talk a lot about the pure beautification benefits that the SkinBase facial can have on the likes of tired, dull and ageing skin, but it’s equally as important to note the benefits for more traumatic skin problems too.

Some of our proudest moments as skincare specialists have come following a course of treatments on someone who has had to suffer and cope with acne and acne scarring for most of their lives. We’ve had people come in for the SkinBase microdermabrasion treatments with deep scarring, low self esteem & confidence and leave after 6 – 8 sessions a completely different person.
