Today’s the day! It’s our microdermabrasion promotional day and salons up and down the country will be carrying out treatments. Last year on our promotional day nearly 10,000 treatments were carried out in just one day!!
What is microdermabrasion?
Think of it like a little hoover that polishes the skin at the same time with tiny crystals. The crystals knock against the skin to remove all the old, tired skin and the suction action pulls them all away and stimulates new collagen production (Collagen is really important to keep skin looking plump and youthful). It’s completely painless and people often comment that it’s quite relaxing actually! Your skin will feel so clean and soft after, you might look a little pink for an hour or two but this will soon turn into a rosy glow. Keep well hydrated and keep your skin moisturised. More about the aftercare below!
Look after your skin
It is important to avoid exposure to the sun after the treatment and use a high factor SPF every time you venture outdoors. Don’t forget to 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 while the skin is more sensitive after treatment.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion
- A single SkinBase™ treatment can remove up to three times the number of dead skin cells in a single session than other exfoliating treatments.
- Unlike many skin rejuvenation treatments, microdermabrasion is non-invasive, so requires zero recovery time. It is often referred to as the ‘lunchtime facial’ because of the convenience and effectiveness.
- The treatment settings are widely adjustable; meaning therapists are able to tailor the treatment to individual skin types and problems.
- Microdermabrasion encourages cell renewal, which means your skin will benefit from improved elasticity, a smoother texture and reduced signs of ageing.
