World Smile Day – Give Yourself Something To Smile About

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.

Collagen Lift

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!

Microdermabrasion treatment – What is it?

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.

How to manage acne in the warmer, summer months…

We all suffer from acne breakouts from time to time, regardless of age or sex. One thing we are often asked about is why acne symptoms are worst in summer. While there can be many contributing factors, one key reason is that people with oily skin tend to suffer more heavily with acne, and oil production is at its highest in summer, hence – a higher likelihood of acne. In this blog, we explore how you can prevent outbreaks during the warmer, summer months.
