BY SKINBASE - The leading brand for microdermabrasion in the UK.
The Skinbase microdermabrasion facial is a gentle exfoliating treatment, during which you'll feel completely relaxed and pampered with no discomfort. During your facial a fine jet of non-allergenic aluminium oxide crystals will be passed over the skin. Dead skin cells will be abraded away and a vacuum action lifts away the debris. This dual action will both resurface the skin and stimulate blood flow, so encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself. The Vacuum action also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion is quick, convenient and painless, immediately restoring younger, smoother looking skin. A single treatment can remove up to three times the number of dead skin cells in a single session than that of many other treatments. It is often referred to as the 'lunchtime facial' because of its convenience and zero down time. After just one treatment results are clearly visible with brighter, fresher, clearer skin.
Treatments start gently and with subsequent sessions the intensity can be increased, where necessary, so reaching to deeper layers and successfully improving the appearance of acne scarring, lifting pigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion targets a range of skin conditions (men too!) and can be used for:
- Acne (with the exception of grade 4 acne) and acne scarring.
- Congested and problematic skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles (great for smokers lines on the upper lip!)
- Photodamaged and ageing skin
- Uneven skin tone, pigmentation and blemishes
- Stretch marks
