Microdermabrasion, meaning literally ‘small skin wearing away’ is an intense exfoliating treatment that uses tiny crystals to buff away the very outer layer of skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath. SkinBase microdermabrasion treatment also benefits from a vacuum action which stimulates the micro-circulation and increases blood flow to the treatment area.
Benefits of microdermabrasion treatment
There are multiple benefits to the skin meaning microdermabrasion is the perfect solution for a number of skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, congested skin, and dull, tired looking skin. Microdermabrasion benefits include; deep exfoliation for clean, clear skin, improved skin tone, stimulates collagen and elastin production and speeds up cell renewal.
Great for acne and pigmentation
It is also very effective for more stubborn skin concerns including acne, acne scarring and pigmentation. Microdermabrasion treatment for acne sufferers is very effective, unblocking clogged pores, increasing blood flow to the area and promoting healing to remove pigmentation caused by spots.
How often should you have treatments?
How often you have microdermabrasion treatments will affect the results you achieve. We recommend a course of 6-8 facials carried out at intervals of 7-10 days. For acne and acne scarring more treatments may be required up to a maximum of 20 in a course.
Microdermabrasion aftercare is also important to achieve the best results from a course of treatments. Your skin will benefit from regular applications of moisturiser. Ensure you use one with an added spf to protect the freshly exfoliated skin from the elements. Make sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
