Microdermabrasion Treatments

Skin Base microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It’s also extremely effective at treating a number of skin problems such as acne scarring, ageing, uneven skin tone, tired/dull skin and dry/dehydrated skin. It’s not restricted to facials though, as microdermabrasion treatment is useful for repairing skin problems on the back too.

How it works in practice is that a fine jet of non allergenic crystals penetrates the skin to gently remove dead skin cells layer by layer, whilst simultaneously a vacuum sweeps up both the crystals and the cellular debris of the skin.

Microdermabrasion is currently considered to be the leading skincare treatment in the UK and Ireland for complete skin rejuvenation.


How Microdermabrasion works

Before we start our highly skilled therapists will suggest how many microdermabrasion treatments you’re likely to need, based on what your skin’s needs are. Here’s what to expect:

  • a light handset gently directs crystals over specific areas of the skin that require treatment

  • the handset gently removes skin debris - via a pleasant feeling suction - and as it does so, increased collagen and elastin production creates a new later of skin

  • this non-invasive, chemical free, treatment delivers amazing results with younger, healthier looking skin apparent from the very first treatment

  • microdermabrasion treatments can be successfully used for anything ranging from stretch marks, fine lines, acne scarring and dull, tired skin, to ageing skin, uneven skin tone and pigmentation

A single Skin Base microdermabrasion treatment session costs £50 and you should look to book regular follow on treatments every four to six weeks.


Microdermabrasion for the back

Take advantage of our most powerful and deep microdermabrasion treatment specifically designed to treat skin problems on the back, including scars and acne. And this it how it works:

  • In a relaxing double cleansing exercise, expect a tingling sensation as a powerful jet of crystals targets every square inch of your back to slough away old skin and imperfections, whilst you relax and drift off into a pleasant reverie

  • A powerful vacuum action then unblocks your pores allowing air to stimulate blood flow that heals and effectively resurface your skin.

And the results are amazing. The skin feels as though it has a smoother texture and any inflamed areas or red and angry looking blemishes are significantly reduced. Not only that the deep cleaning crystals ensure that no new spots or further problems appear on your back.


Microdermabrasion has many benefits

As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion is quick, convenient and painless and:

  • Immediately restores younger, smoother looking skin without the need for any chemicals or lasers.

  • It can penetrate deeper into the skin and remove three times as many dead skin cells, when compared with other similar treatments

  • Skin will be stronger, smoother and look younger

  • Suitable for all skin types with no recovery time required

Like everything else, you need too keep on top of skin problems and that’s why it’s useful to think of a monthly maintenance plan that you can follow. This keeps your skin fresh and smooth looking as well as completely rejuvenated.
