SkinBase Microdermabrasion Treatment (Prices Below)


An effective exfoliation treatment that can be done of the face or back!


A safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates, resurfaces the skin and stimulate the blood flow, encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin resulting in firmer, revitalised and youthful looking skin. Wrinkles disappear, acne scarring is reduced and dull & tired skin is completely banished - sometimes after just one treatment.


We will perform an initial consultation and recommend a course length to you.  Usually, this will consist of 6 to 12 treatments, 7 to 10 days apart.  Skin problems such as acne or acne scarring, or deeper forehead wrinkles may require up to 20 treatments to achieve full improvements. 

After a course is completed, a single monthly treatment will maintain your skin's improvements. 


We shall apply a gel cleanser 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.


The SkinBase wand will then be used, delivering a fine jet of abrasive crystals as its passed over the skin. Dead skin particles will be abraded away and a vacuum action will remove the debris.  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.


After the treatment an Eve Taylor moisturiser with a neutral pH and without any essential oils, AHA’s, glycolics or retinol will 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 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.

Aftercare

We recommend that you adhere to the following advice after having microdermabrasion treatment:

For 24 Hours: No Swimming, facial waxing 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.


All at times:

During a course of microdermabrasion SPF15 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.
