What is microdermabrasion?

The SkinBase™ facial microdermabrasion treatment uses a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove dead cells from the skin’s surface. The crystals are applied using a handset, allowing your clinician to treat specific areas of the body. The handset then uses suction to gently draw away crystals and skin debris to reveal a fresh complexion.

The benefits of microdermabrasion

This facial treatment is non-invasive and chemical free but still achieves amazing results – producing younger, healthier looking skin after the very first session.

Microdermabrasion can be used to give skin a healthy glow or target more specific issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, sun damage and acne. Post-treatment, the skin’s appearance continues to improve thanks to increased collagen and elastin production.

The process is quick, convenient and painless – immediately restoring the skin, leaving it looking younger and smoother without the need for chemicals, lasers or Botox.

Who is microdermabrasion for?

The microdermabrasion therapy we offer at Skin Appeal Clinic uses safe, non-allergenic crystals that are suitable for all skin types. 

As an anti-ageing treatment, microdermabrasion is particularly beneficial for those aged 28+. However, all age groups* are likely to see results when used as a treatment for problematic skin issues such as acne scarring.

*Under-16s require parental consent to undergo this treatment.

The SkinBase™ microdermabrasion technique is progressive rather than aggressive, so skin layers are gently removed over a course of treatments. Ideally, treatments should be carried out every 7 – 10 days, gradually increasing in intensity each time. 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 achieve a smoother, youthful complexion.*

*Microdermabrasion cannot help clients with the vitiligo disorder.
