Microdermabrasion @ Body Embrace, Liverpool, Merseyside

The SkinBase Facial™ is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It is the leading microdermabrasion treatment in the UK & Ireland. A fine jet of abrasive crystals gently removes dead skin cells layer by layer and a vacuum action lifts away the debris, stimulating the blood flow and encouraging collagen and elastin formation that results in firmer, revitalised and youthful looking skin.

Effects are usually seen after the first treatment, with ongoing improvements seen week after week during a course. We will perform an initial consultation and recommend a course length to you. Usually, this will consist of 6 to 8 treatments, 7 to 10 days apart. Skin problems such as acne or acne scarring may require up to 20 weeks to achieve full improvements. After a course is completed, a single monthly treatment will maintain your skin’s improvements.

Step 1:Client Consultation

We 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.

Step 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.

Step 3: 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.

Step 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.
