First developed in Italy in 1985, Microdermabrasion has become an increasingly popular non-invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation. The process of a SkinBase Microdermabrasion (MD) facial involves the abrasive action of tiny crystals, along with a suction action, to gently remove dead skin cells and surface debris. The procedure is simple, quick, and painless, with no downtime, so a perfect choice for regular treatment.
How does it all work?
During treatment, the tiny crystals gently exfoliate the skin. The SkinBase microdermabrasion machine works using vacuum pressure. The machine draws crystal, under suction, through the small hole at the end of the handpiece and over the skin. At the same time sucking away the dead skin and used crystals. The used crystals and the outermost layer of skin are then collected in a reservoir (disposable jar) and discarded safely and hygienically.
What are the benefits for my skin?
The vacuum pressure of the machine increases blood flow to the superficial layers of the skin. Partial skin ablation to the stratum corneum layer is desirable. A number of factors determine the degree of exfoliation. Vacuum pressure, crystal flow, the speed and movement of each handpiece pass, as well as the number of repeated strokes over the same area of skin.
Just one SkinBase signature facial can dramatically improve the feel and appearance of the skin so we recommend a course of facials. This will help remove scars, fine lines and wrinkles, surface pigmentation and even stretch marks!
- Results are progressive – With each treatment, you will continue to see an improvement in your skin’s appearance.
- Aids absorption of products – Regular exfoliation with this signature facial will ensure products can penetrate the skin for better absorption.
- Exfoliates deeper – Hence regular treatments will improve the appearance of pigmentation and scarring
- Stimulates collagen production- Therefore regular treatments will keep skin supple and more elastic with the increase of collagen.
