Did you know it’s World Smile Day on the 4th of October? Here at SkinBase, we’ve got a couple of recommendations to put a smile on your face.
Why not book some ‘me’ time and treat yourself to microdermabrasion or a collagen lift? We’re donating a £1 from every treatment in October to Breast Cancer Now. You’ll not only be smiling, but your skin will look great too and you will be helping a worthwhile cause!
How microdermabrasion can improve your skin
Microdermabrasion exfoliates your skin and takes away the top layer of skin. Unlike home remedies, a SkinBase treatment goes deeper into the epidermis sweeping away dry and dead skin cells after only one treatment.
We use fine crystals which are rubbed gently into your skin using a hand-held wand. The procedure itself is painless. Rubbing away the skin’s top layer encourages improved blood circulation. This helps to improve the skin’s texture and create more elasticity. If you have regular microdermabrasion treatments your skin will stay youthful and fresh looking.
Microdermabrasion will benefit you if you have:
- Acne scars
- A dull complexion
- Age spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Clogged pores
- Fine lines
The microdermabrasion facial procedure will take around half an hour to an hour depending on which option you go for. Afterwards, your skin might be a bit red, but this will soon fade away.
As your skin may be sensitive to the sun immediately after treatment it is a good idea to apply moisturiser and sunscreen before you go out.
Microdermabrasion works on all skin types, but if you have acne or rosacea, Intense Pulsed Light treatment will be better for you.
If you are worried about sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles, treat yourself to a collagen lift treatment. It’s been dubbed ‘the facelift without surgery’ and it really does do the job without using needles or knives. A collagen lift tightens loose skin so that your fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out.
Remember the smooth, voluminous skin you had as a young adult? Well, that was because your body was producing plenty of collagen. Unfortunately, as we age collagen production decreases and that’s why we get loose skin and lines.
A collagen lift increases collagen production so that your skin has more moisture and elasticity. If you have regular collagen lifts your skin will stay tight and look smooth. That should make you smile!
