Do you have one of those people in your life who are just impossible to buy for? Or someone who is always stressed and on-the-go? What about someone who just simply deserves a really wonderful treat? We have the perfect gift idea for you – a voucher for a Microdermabrasion Facial. Read on to find out why Microdermabrasion is the perfect Christmas treat.
What is it?
Microdermabrasion is a uniquely effective beauty treatment, which works by passing a fine jet of abrasive crystals over the skin, and then lifting them (and the dead skin they remove) away using a light vacuum. The crystals are gentle on the skin, but abrasive enough to lift away dead skin and grime. Even the vacuum action is gentle, but not only does it make Microdermabrasion a circulation-stimulating treatment, but it also improves collagen production in the skin.
Pamper and relax
Microdermabrasion might not sound particularly relaxing – abrasive crystals? Vacuuming? It might sound intense, but rest assured, Microdermabrasion feels pleasant on the skin, and SkinBase’s therapists are experts at providing you (or your friend) with a soothing and pampering experience. Microdermabrasion is truly the best of both worlds – a relaxing, indulgent beauty experience and a high-tech, extremely effective treatment all in one. The therapist will talk with you beforehand about what your skin concerns are and what you’d like to get out of your treatments, to ensure that the experience is exactly what you want it to be.
What are the effects?
Microdermabrasion is an extremely versatile treatment, which is what makes it the perfect Christmas gift for any friend or family member! Read on to learn just how many skin concerns Microdermabrasion can help with.
Spots and Blemishes
The deeply exfoliating effect of Microdermabrasion makes it perfect for people who are dealing with congested skin and blemishes because MD works to clear out the pores and remove excess oil, therefore eliminating two of the primary causes of spots, blackheads and breakouts. If you know someone suffering from teenage skin problems when they’re well into their 30s or 40s, Microdermabrasion is the perfect gift for them, it’s a sophisticated treatment that will target their spots without making them feel like a 15 year old.
Of course, many of us experience the opposite problem – fine lines, wrinkles and ageing skin! The good news is that Microdermabrasion can help here too. The exfoliation speeds up cell renewal, which reduces the appearance of fine lines by enabling younger skin cells to come to the surface. The vacuum aspect also helps to stimulate collagen production, which plumps up and firms the skin, to give it a youthful, lifted appearance.
Pigmentation and scarring
For some, pigmentation or leftover acne scarring is the skin woe that most affects our confidence, and by speeding up cell renewal, Microdermabrasion can be a fantastic solution to both of these too. Not only does Microdermabrasion increase the rate at which the skin renews itself, the damaged or uneven-toned skin cells that create the appearance of scarring or pigmentation are also manually removed by the exfoliation. Lastly, by stimulating collagen production, Microdermabrasion helps to reduce the appearance of dents left behind by scars.
When someone is always on the go, whether it’s a hectic job, kids, socialising, university or a combination of several of these, their complexion is the first to suffer. By stimulating the circulation and removing layers of dead skin, Microdermabrasion helps to revive a tired, dull complexion and reveal fresh, radiant skin that glows. It will also give your friend the perfect excuse to relax and unwind a little – something they no doubt desperately need!
