Microdermabrasion works by removing the top layer of dead skin, revealing the new, fresh and radiant skin underneath. The aim to help clients rid themselves of irritating and unsightly acne scars, fine lines, uneven skin tones, pigmentation and blocked pores.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microcrystals are the secret behind the microdermabrasion technique. Hard enough to exfoliate unwanted, dead skin cells, but small enough to leave the skin undamaged. Thousands of tiny crystals are fired across your face, then gently sucked up using a small vacuum. The combination of these processes encourages elastin and collagen to form – plumping skin, minimising can and acne scarring and unclogging your blocked pores.
Who is microdermabrasion best suited for?
Microdermabrasion might use cutting edge technology but the mechanics behind it make it a safe, pain-free and simple method of rejuvenating skin. Its use of microcrystals means it is also gentle enough to suit almost any skin type. If you’re uncertain about how sensitive your skin is, microdermabrasion therapists can easily change the level from low to high – a great idea on your first try at least.
The treatment helps to eliminate sun-damage from over-exposure to UV rays. This might include things like sunspots and dry skin. It’s also very effective when treating age-related wrinkles, such as crow’s feet lines around the eyes.
Recovery & Downtime for microdermabrasion treatments:
The reason microdermabrasion is so popular with clients, celebs and actresses, is somewhat due to the fact the procedure takes just 30minutes. It’s know as the ‘lunchbreak’ facial – meaning you can have it dne and be back at your desk with no problems just over half an hour later.
On the whole, blocked pores should be easily treatable with a good skincare routine and some microdermabrasion treatments. Try these before moving on to the next extreme.
One of the most important things you should always be clear on is the experience and training of you beauty therapists (whatever the treatment you’re having!) SkinBase microdermabrasion therapists all have specific training and on going support so clients know they’re getting a qualified level of care.
