What is it?

Microdermabrasion is a system of intense exfoliation that rejuvenates the skin. Ultra fine crystals strike the skin to remove its outer layer. At the same time, a vacuum sweeps up the cellular debris.

The production of collagen and elastin is stimulated, which can result in a firmer, more youthful looking skin.

Non-invasive, painless and safe. Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types.

Benefits

  • Eliminates possible adverse reactions often associated with chemical solutions.
  • Can return to your normal lifestyle immediately after treatment, i.e. no extreme reddening of the skin etc.

  • Immediate results, even after the first treatment.
  • Helps treat early signs of ageing and offers an overall rejuvenation for aged skin.
  • Vacuum suction offers improved elasticity and muscle tone.
  • Enhances penetration of approved products after treatment.
  • Variable control allows deeper exfoliation of thickened blemished skin and acne scarring.

Treatments

SkinBase logoWe offer a 30 minute treatment on the face which includes a cleanse, 20mins of microdermabrasion, tone, moisturise and sun protection factor. This treatment can also be carried out on the top of the back/shoulders and is especially good for congestion and acne scarring in this area.

A 50 minute treatment is also available, this is the same as the 30minute treatment with an additional cooling or moisturising masque followed by a neck/shoulder massage, scalp and hand massage.

Microdermabrasion is also great for treating age spots on the back of the hands so we will be offering this as a separate treatment. Areas of cellulite and stretch marks on the body can also be treated, ask us for details.

Although you can definately see a difference after one treatment, it is strongly recommended to have a course of 6-8 to treat conditions such as pigmentation/ fine lines & acne scaring  (acne scarring may need more than 6-8 sessions). A course of treatments should be carried out every 7-10 days. Once a month is then recommended for maintenance.

Aftercare advice

We recommend that you adhere to the following advice:

  • For 12 hours – Do not wear heavy make-up
  • For 24 hours – No swimming or facial waxing
  • For 48 hours – No botox, collagen injections or dermal fillers
  • No sun exposure, sauna, sunbed or heat treatments
  • For 72 hours- Do not use any AHAs, glycolics, retinol or exfoliating treatments
  • Sun protection factor of at least SPF15 must be applied.

If skin feels hot, splash with cold water, pat dry and moisturise regularly with a gentle, hydrating moisturiser. Regular moisturiser applications are vital to replenish moisture and prevent the skin from becoming dry and peeling. Do not use any anti-ageing creams for 72 hours post procedure.

Most side effects are temporary and generally subside within 72 hours.
