Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve got the answer to all your SkinBase™ questions, and if we don’t, just ask.
Is microdermabrasion safe for all skin types?
Yes, microdermabrasion can be used for all skin types on all areas of the body and face.
Is The SkinBase Facial™ only suitable for use on the face?
No, The SkinBase Facial™ is fantastic on pigmentation, lines and stretch marks anywhere on the body.
Are there any side effects to the treatment?
After the treatment, the skin may feel tight with mild redness. Therefore it is important that you use a good moisturiser. These effects normally subside within 36 hours of treatment.
How many treatments should I have?
SkinBase recommend a course of 8, however your SkinBase therapist will talk this through with you following your initial consultation. People with acne or acne scarring might need more treatments and we recommend a monthly maintenance treatment after each course has finished to help maintain the results achieved.
How quickly can I expect to see results?
You will see results immediately and with each subsequent treatment your skin will continue to look progressively better.
How often should I have The SkinBase Facial™ ?
Treatments are usually performed every 7 to 10 days but your SkinBase therapist will confirm this with you.
I have suffered from reactions to other facials, will this be the same with The SkinBase Facial™?
Crystal microdermabrasion uses a sterile compound with zero risk of allergic reaction. Your SkinBase therapist will provide a patch test on the back of your forearm for added reassurance.
