Are you starting to notice a fine line here or the odd wrinkle there? Don’t worry, this is one of the most common signs of ageing so you’re in good company.

When it comes to ageing, many women are self-conscious when fine lines and wrinkles start to appear and it can affect self-confidence or the way you feel about how you look. No matter how good your skin care routine is, fine lines and wrinkles can still creep in so you might be looking for another way to remove them.

There are a number of different cosmetic facial treatments that are non-invasive and do not require surgery that can help you to combat the common signs of ageing. Microdermabrasion is a popular anti-ageing facial treatment that can leave your skin looking younger and fresher, helping you to look and feel younger.

Is microdermabrasion good for ageing skin?

One of the questions we are commonly asked is does microdermabrasion work as a successful anti-ageing treatment? Put simply, the answer is yes! Microdermabrasion (The SkinBase Facial) can provide the perfect way to combat signs of ageing on your face – especially if you want to look youthful without undergoing invasive surgical procedures. The treatment can be used on a variety of skin types so it’s perfect if you’re looking to reduce the signs of ageing on your face.

As you age, the elasticity and firmness of your face can decrease as your body produces less collagen and elastin. This can cause skin to sag and is when fine lines and wrinkles start to occur. Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment that can help you to keep your skin looking fresh and to maintain a more youthful appearance.

One of the biggest benefits of microdermabrasion for ageing skin is it is a
much less invasive procedure than treatments such as injectables and fillers which freeze your facial muscles to prevent wrinkles or chemical peels which use chemicals to dissolve the top layer of skin.

How does microdermabrasion work for ageing skin?

The SkinBase Facial™ works by targeting the top layers of the skin, called the “epidermis”. Microdermabrasion’s exfoliating action helps to remove ageing skin cells and damaged skin layers to reveal fresher, younger looking skin and a dazzling complexion.

The anti-ageing microdermabrasion procedure is simple and effective, and it can rejuvenate your ageing skin’s appearance in a short time with little or no discomfort.

Microdermabrasion via The SkinBase Facial™ is ideally suited for a person who has ageing skin or skin that has been subject to sun damage.

We’re all looking for an anti-ageing treatment that actually works and microdermabrasion treatments polish and soften the skin, reducing fine lines and age spots on the face. It’s also great for reducing the appearance of acne scars too. The process is used to treat areas prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Often these lines are next to the eyes, on the cheeks, on the forehead, and the area around the mouth.

Why choose The SkinBase Facial™ as an Anti Ageing Treatment?

The SkinBase Facial™ is a microdermabrasion treatment that’s great for helping you to combat the signs of ageing on your face. Benefits include:

It is a simple, straightforward and painless anti ageing treatment for ageing skin
It is as effective as many more invasive surgical procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing and does not require anaesthesia
It enables you to return to your daily routine (with younger looking skin!) with minimal disruption after treatment – a benefit that gives it its nickname ‘the lunchtime facial’!
It is suitable for all skin tones and even sensitive skin
It is more affordable than many other cosmetic anti ageing skin treatments

To help avoid any risks and speed up recovery for your ageing skin, it is important to avoid sun exposure for at least 48 hours but make sure you avoid it as much as possible during a course of treatments. Make sure you use a high factor SPF every time you venture outdoors. Don’t forget to also moisturise your skin thoroughly in the days following the treatment (which you should do anyway if you want to maintain younger looking skin!). Avoid any harsh products such as exfoliating scrubs and glycolic acid creams as these can be detrimental to ageing skin renewal.
