The SkinBase™ Microdermabrasion Facial is a progressive rather than aggressive treatment, during which you’ll feel completely relaxed and pampered with no discomfort from the facial. How does microdermabrasion work? Over the course of your facial treatments 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. With each of your subsequent SkinBase™ treatments, the intensity of the facial microdermabrasion can be increased – reaching to deeper layers and successfully removing acne scarring, lifting pigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

Aftercare Advice : We recommend clients adhere to the following advice following treatment -
For 12 Hours after treatment: No heavy Make-Up. For 24 Hours after treatment: No swimming, no facial waxing. For 48 Hours after treatment: No sauna, sun beds or sun exposure. No ‘Botox’, collagen injections or dermal fillers. For 72 Hours after treatment: Do not use anti-ageing creams, AHA’s, Glycolics or Retinol. Do not use exfoliating products, the newly abraded skin is receptive to any products applied, so the use of any exfoliants after treatment can irritate the skin. At all times during a course of treatment: SPF must be applied and exposure to U.V should be avoided (we recommend you apply SPF every day whether you are having microdermabrasion or not). Regular moisturiser applications are vital to replenish moisture and prevent the skin from becoming dry and peeling. Use gentle products that won't irritate skin.
