Microdermabrasion: Fresher, Clearer Skin in Just a Few Short Treatments


Microderm is chemical free  minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses fine crystals and a vacuum to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. It can be used on the face, neck, chest, back, hands and even feet. 


The main benefits of this treatment is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minor scars, wrinkles and age spots and make the skin smoother and even out skin tone. It can also be used to help reduce acne scarring and pigmentation.


This treatment is perfect for a one off procedure, or you can book multiple to maintain results. We offer an express microdermabrasion which is £30, and a luxury Microderm treatment which is £60 that includes the use of our LED light therapy machine. We also offer a course of 6, with the 6th session being free of charge. 


Results, Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment and as such should be carried out regularly. Results achieved for for skin problems can be maintained by protecting the skin from damaging UV Rays and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

What Does Microdermabrasion Treat?


Microdermabrasion targets a whole multitude of ‘skin sins’.


Microdermabrasion treatments can be used for anything from stretch marks, fine lines, acne scarring and dull, tired skin to ageing skin, uneven skin tone and pigmentation.





Is Microdermabrasion suitable for everyone?

For darker skin tones, higher intensities can cause an uneven lightening effect. Your therapist will use a lower intensity treatment at all times on these skin types. Pregnant clients should not have treatments due to hormone changes in the body which may cause pigmentation. Those who have rosacea or extensive broken capillaries should also avoid microdermabrasion treatments because of the vacuum action. Rest assured, your SkinBase therapist will complete a thorough consultation prior to treatment to check your suitability for the treatment.

Are There Any Downsides to Microdermabrasion?

A correctly performed procedure by a fully qualified microdermabrasion therapist will result in nothing more than the skin feeling tight, occasionally with a mild redness. These effects will normally subside within 24 hours of the treatment. Sometimes microdermabrasion can trigger a healing crisis in problematic skin, such as an acne breakout in acne sufferers or pimples for those with congested skin. This is a sign that the treatment is taking effect. This temporary reaction will subside and great improvements will be seen over subsequent treatments.

There are 4 Simple Steps to the SkinBase™ Microdermabrasion Facial


1 Client Consultation


The SkinBase™ Therapist will determine your individual needs and devise a treatment plan to achieve the results that you require. Treatments plans can vary from single ‘beauty boost’ treatments to courses of 6 to 20 treatments every 7 to 10 days.

2 Cleanse


A gel cleanser will be used to ensure that your skin is clean and dry before the treatment commences. 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.


3 Microdermabrasion, Treat and Target


A wand delivering a fine jet of abrasive crystals will be passed over the skin. Dead skin particles will be abraded away and a vacuum action will remove the debris. This dual action will both resurface the skin and stimulate the blood flow, encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin. After passing across the skin area once, the therapist will then target problem areas like open pores, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and acne scarring.

4 Moisturise with SPF


After the treatment a simple moisturiser with a neutral pH (pH 4.5 – pH 7) and without any essential oils, AHA’s, glycolics or retinol should be applied to replenish lost moisture and to prevent the skin becoming dry and peeling.

Sun damage can cause pigmentation and premature ageing of the skin. After a SkinBase™ Facial it is essential to protect the skin from excessive sun exposure by applying a moisturiser with an SPF. This is especially true in the summer months and for clients that are having SkinBase™ Facials to treat pigmentation. Failure to apply regular sun cream could cause the pigmentation to return.
