Microdermabrasion facials available from Jan 9th 2019
What is microdermabrasion?
The SkinBase™ Facial microdermabrasion treatment uses a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skin’s outermost layers of dead cells. Your therapist will use the handset to direct the stream of crystal over the treatment area and, where necessary, target specific zones. The handset then uses a mild suction to draw away the crystal and skin debris to reveal your new and improved complexion.
The SkinBase™ Facial 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.
The benefits of microdermabrasion are many.
As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion is quick, convenient and painless, immediately restoring younger, smoother looking skin without the need for chemicals, lasers or Botox.
The huge number of benefits is what makes microdermabrasion such a popular treatment.
Great for treating
Dull, tired and dry skin
Uneven skin tone
Fine lines and wrinkles
The vacuum action during The SkinBase™ Facial works to stimulate the production of collagen, something we lose gradually as we age. This stimulation and skin’s renewal improves the condition of the skin’s surface – helping to target ageing skin, stretch marks, pigmentation, cellulite, dry and dehydrated skin and acne scarring.
For anti-ageing treatments, all skin types and tones from ages 28 and up will benefit the most from The SkinBase™ Facial. However, for problematic skin such as Acne Scarring all age groups can benefit. Under 16 year olds will need a parental co-sign however.

Dry skin types
Dry skin is caused by under-active oil glands that do not produce enough sebum to keep the skin naturally hydrated. It may have a dull appearance and feel dry and itchy. Dry skin must be hydrated regularly from the inside (drinking water) and outside with the likes of microdermabrasion treatments, hydrating creams and lotions. Removing the dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin using The SkinBase™ Facial speeds up the rate at which the skin would normally renew itself, revealing new, fresh skin and a radiant glow.
Oily skin types
Oily skin is produced by glands that produce too much sebum, resulting in skin that appears shiny and has some large open pores. Oily skin types are prone to develop blackheads and acne. Oily skin benefits hugely from microdermabrasion. Light moisturisers should be applied afterwards.
Sensitive skin types
Sensitive skins can be dry, normal or oily and are characterised by their delicacy. Sensitive skin frequently reacts adversely to environmental conditions and often requires special treatment in order to remain in good condition. Due to the make up of The SkinBase™ Facial, those with sensitive skin can be sure that any reddening of the skin will be temporary and will subside within 24-48 hours.
Normal skin types
Normal skin produces sebum at a moderate rate, resulting in a balanced state. Normal skin looks consistently plump, moist and vibrant. A great blessing but still requires no less attention. It benefits from regular microdermabrasion, cleansing, toning and moisturising.
Combination skin types
Combination skin is the most common skin type. Combination skin is frequently characterised by an oily ‘T’ zone area that covers the forehead, nose and chin. While the skin around the cheeks, eyes and mouth is normal to dry. People with oily skin benefit from microdermabrasion as they can have different levels of intensity focused on different parts of their skin.
Mature skin types
Mature skin becomes dry as sebaceous glands become less active. Skin loses elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Skin appears thinner with broken capillaries, especially on the cheek area and around the nose. Blood circulation becomes poor, which interferes with the skin nutrition making skin appear sallow. Mature skin must be hydrated well through drinking water, using nourishing moisturisers and having regular microdermabrasion treatments.
The SkinBase™ Facial is progressive rather than aggressive, so skin layers are gently removed over a course of treatments. With treatments ideally being carried out every 7 – 10 days, each treatment can be increased in intensity. This will make sure the microdermabrasion exfoliation reaches deeper layers of the skin and allows for acne scarring to be removed, pigmentation lifted and fine lines smoothed. Whoever you are, The SkinBase™ Facial will help you to attain smoother, youthful looking skin.*
Please do not exfoliate your skin for 48 hours prior to your treatment.
For male clients, ideally your face should be clean shaved the night before a treatment (this is not essential). Dry, shaven and clean skin means that the abrasive compound can penetrate the skin unobstructed.
Arrive for your treatment fresh and clean.
We recommend that you adhere to the following advice after having microdermabrasion treatment:
For 12 Hours: Do not wear heavy make-up (mineral based make-up is better and we recommend (glo minerals)
For 24 Hours: No Swimming, waxing of the area that has been treated or fake tan application.
For 48 Hours: No Sauna, sun beds or sun exposure. No Botox, collagen injections or dermal fillers.
For 72 Hours: Do not use any anti-ageing creams, AHA's glycolics, retinol or exfoliation products.
At All Times:
During a course of microdermabrasion SPF20 minimum must be applied and exposure to UV should be avoided.
Regular moisturiser application are vital to replenish moisture and prevent the skin from becoming dry and peeling. (we recommend Dermalogica)
