SkinBase Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses fine crystals and a vacuum to exfoliate the skin. By removing dead skin cells from the outer layer, the treatment reveals the fresh skin below. Microdermabrasion is a popular facial. However, you can use the versatile treatment on most areas of your body. Benefit from an exfoliation of your face, neck, chest, back and hands, if they require it. This safe procedure reduces fine lines, minor scars, wrinkles, sun damage and age spots to smooth and freshen your skin.

The treatment uses a stream of non-allergenic crystals (crystal microdermabrasion) to remove your skin’s outermost layers of dead cells. Your therapist will use a handheld device to direct the stream of crystal over the treatment area. The crystals are great for targeting problem areas. The handset then uses a mild suction to draw away the crystal and skin debris to reveal your new and improved complexion. Post-treatment requires no recovery time. Return to daily activities immediately.

What is SkinBase Microdermabrasion?

SkinBase Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion removes the top layers of the skin called the stratum corneum. Similarly to brushing your teeth, microdermabrasion helps to remove the debris from your skin. Human skin regenerates at 30 day intervals and regular microdermabrasion treatments performed every 7-10 days (which is what we recommend during a course of treatment) will ensure continued improvement for your skin concerns.

SkinBase™ microdermabrasion is chemical free and non-invasive yet achieves amazing results revealing younger, healthier looking skin from the very first treatment. The skin’s appearance is further improved through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.


How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

During a microdermabrasion treatment, a fine jet of abrasive crystals gently removes dead skin cells layer by layer and a vacuum action lifts away the debris, stimulating the blood flow and encouraging collagen and elastin formation. This is a type of microdermabrasion that uses crystals to exfoliate your skin.

What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?

Microdermabrasion treats a variety of skin conditions including acne and acne scarring, dull and tired skin, pigmentation, blemishes and the effects of ageing skin including wrinkles and fine lines.

What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?

In as little as 30 minutes a microdermabrasion facial will exfoliate and rejuvenate to reveal more youthful looking skin. During a course of treatments, wrinkles and fine lines will disappear, acne and acne scarring will be significantly reduced and dull and tired skin will be restored to glowing health.

Are There Any Downsides To Microdermabrasion?

A correctly performed procedure by a fully qualified microdermabrasion therapist will result in nothing more than the skin feeling tight, occasionally with a mild redness. These effects will normally subside within 24 hours of the treatment. Sometimes microdermabrasion can trigger a healing crisis in problematic skin, such as an acne breakout in acne sufferers or pimples for those with congested skin. This is a sign that the treatment is taking effect. This temporary reaction will subside and great improvements will be seen over subsequent treatments.

Is Microdermabrasion Suitable for Everyone?

For darker skin tones, higher intensities can cause an uneven lightening effect. Your therapist will use a lower intensity treatment at all times on these skin types. Pregnant clients should not have treatments due to hormone changes in the body which may cause pigmentation. Those who have rosacea or extensive broken capillaries should also avoid microdermabrasion treatments because of the vacuum action. Rest assured, your SkinBase therapist will complete a thorough consultation prior to treatment to check your suitability for the treatment.
