Dull Skin Treatment: Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion speeds up the body’s normal rate of skin renewal. Gets rid of tired and dull patches and reveals new, fresh skin and a radiant glow.

What causes dull, tired looking skin?

As we age, our skin can lose its brightness and can start to look grey in appearance. When we’re younger, our skin cells shed over 30 days but, as we get older, it can take up to 60 days, which causes a build up of dead skin cells and a dull looking complexion. This can speed up signs of ageing in your face and make you look older than you are or make you look tired.

We are also constantly exposed to the UV rays of the sun which can make our skin start to appear dry, tired and dull as a result of sun damage. This is the result of the outside layer of skin building up and not being exfoliated on a regular basis.

Build-up can be especially apparent to women and you may start to realise that your make-up does not look as fresh. This is because the make-up is absorbed into the accumulated dead skin cells on your face, resulting in a tired and dull look to your skin.

Dull skin lacks lustre and radiance and can make you look old, tired or run down. It is a common skin complaint that is easily resolved through microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion: The best facial for ageing, tired skin

Microdermabrasion can help you to rediscover youthful radiance and shine. By removing dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin The SkinBase Facial™ (microdermabrasion) speeds up the rate at which your skin would normally renew itself, helping to rid you of tired and dull patches to reveal new, fresh skin and provide a radiant glow. The treatment can be used on a number of skin types to treat the signs of ageing and improve your overall skin health.

Benefits of the SkinBase Facial include:

  • Revitalise tired skin by stimulating collagen and elastin formation
  • Immediate visible results for dull skin even after the first treatment
  • Perfect for congested, uneven skin with open pores – helps to tighten and brighten tired, dull skin
  • Variable control allowing for deeper exfoliation of blemished, uneven, blotchy skin
  • You can return to your normal lifestyle immediately – a ‘lunchtime facial’
  • Fresh faced feeling after a number of treatments resulting in less need for make up

Through neglect, nutritional deficiency, pollution, poor lifestyles or just bad genetics, your skin can become grey and tired. The SkinBase Facial™ is proven to help revitalise dull and tired skin – take a look at our videos of real women who have experienced the results.

"I had a course of Microdermabrasion done on my face and neck. I hadn't had anything like this before and Clare put me at ease by explaining what she was going to do. After 5 weeks of treatment my skin feels much smoother and healthier looking with no blemishes and the wrinkles under my chin and neck have disappeared"​
