Treating Skin Concerns
SkinBase microdermabrasion can help to improve a number of skin concerns. If your clients have pigmentation or are suffering from acne or acne scarring then a course of microdermabrasion can help to achieve great results. Microdermabrasion is a progressive treatment and you can perform up to 20 treatments in a single course if required, so perservere if you are continuing to see great results.
Ageing Skin, fine lines and wrinkles
As we age, elastin and collagen production starts to slow down. Not only will microdermabrasion exfoliate and remove old skin cells, the vacuum action of the microdermabrasion treatment works to stimulate blood flow, promoting the formation of new elastin and collagen. The combination of collagen stimulation and increased skin renewal will improve the condition of the skin’s surface, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Dull and Tired Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Dry and Dehydrated Skin
Many of us suffer with these common skin complaints, microdermabrasion helps by removing the dead cells from the top layer of the epidermis. Normally skin renews itself around every 28 days. Microdermabrasion speeds up this rate to reveal new, fresh skin and a radiant glow. Skincare products will absorb more easily and makeup will apply more evenly on the smooth, exfoliated skin.
Course of facials for pigmentation
A course of Microdermabrasion facials performed regularly every 7-10 days will allow you to work down the epidermal layers to remove pigmentation.
Microdermabrasion works by removing the top layers of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface making it particularly effective in treating acne. Eliminating dead skin cells unclogs pores and minimises sebum production reducing the chance of new spots developing. Increased cell turnover can cause a ‘healing crisis’ especially in congested skin, this is perfectly normal and is a good sign the treatment is working.
As many will know, Acne can result in damage and scarring to the skin. The stimulation of collagen production during a microdermabrasion treatment helps to plump up these areas of scarring and uneven texture, and combined with the removal of built-up dead skin cells, this helps to restore a smooth texture to the skin. Removing dead skin also helps to speed up the skin’s cell renewal process – this is very important for reducing scarring because it means that the damaged cells are replaced more quickly.
Maintaining Results for skin concerns
Results achieved for skin problems such as pigmentation and acne/acne scarring can be maintained by protecting the skin from UV rays and maintaining a healthy diet & lifestyle alongside monthly microdermabrasion treatments. Microdermabrasion also helps the absorption of skincare products into the skin, so your client’s at-home skincare routine is more effective. Using a good high protection spf at all times and throughout the year will help to prevent further skin damage. Remember, investing in their skin should be a lifelong commitment, there are no quick fixes that last. Get clients in the habit of looking after their skin properly now and reap the rewards in the future.
