When excess skin cells build up on the surface of your face, the skin can appear dull, dry, congested or in some cases rough and flaky. Blackheads are more likely to develop into pimples as excess skin can trap the pores, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Dehydration accelerates the appearance of fine lines and ageing.
Removing the excess skin that blocks the surface means skincare products penetrate up to 50% more, so serums can work more efficiently and get you better results.
With regular microdermabrasion treatments, the skin gets into a healthy rhythm, the cells in the lower layers can work more efficiently, which means collagen and elastin production is increased, in turn giving the skin strength and slow ageing.
This will also increase the stimulation of blood flow, so oxygen and skin nutrients reach all areas and cells. This is what gives a healthy natural glow and radiance.
What is microdermabrasion?
Using a diamond tip head piece, we screw it onto a pen like hand piece, which gives the suction. The tiny diamonds are run along your skin in 2 inch lengths to loosen and exfoliate the build up of dead skin cells on the surface and the suction will vacuum it into the machine as it goes. This reveals a fresher, healthier looking skin. By removing this top layer of skin it promotes cell renewal to increase the production of newer and healthier skin calls to be brought up to the surface.
Why diamond tip microdermabrasion?
The reason we have a diamond tip is we believe it is the gentlest, most thorough type on the market. The reason that we use both those words together is for a few reasons. If you have the type of skin that can get micro (congested, rough, dry, uneven skin texture) then you want it to be thorough to ensure you smooth out and soften the skin. But as with everything if you exfoliate too much you can do damage- cause dryness and even more roughness also sensitivity. The diamond tip gives an even exfoliation all over, but we also have the ability to reduce the vacuum and be gentle on certain areas if needed.
4 reasons why you should have a micro treatment.
1.Evens skin tone
The exfoliating properties of microdermabrasion results in removing the top dull layer, showing beautiful glowing skin. By increasing the circulation to the skin, microdermabrasion can also improve the results of topical products that you apply to address your pigmentation or scaring concerns. Because as the circulation increases, cell metabolism increases allowing for greater penetration.
Microdermabrasion is particularly effective in the control of congestion (blackheads) Blackheads are more likely to develop into pimples as it is the dead skin that can cover the pore, creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
The exfoliation loosens the top layer of skin allowing the suction to loosen the top of the blackhead. It can minimise the appearance of superficial blackheads, but extractions will still be needed for a thorough deep cleanse. Microdermabrasion though will make extractions much easier.
By removing this excess dead skin, the skin instantly feels softer and congestion has less of that bumpy feel to it. Micro is best for whiteheads and blackheads, if there are any active breakouts at the time it can still be done. We just go around them, so as to not spread the bacteria.
The main function of microdermabrasion is to exfoliate. So If you are after a smoother fresher skin then this is the treatment for you.
We use a diamond microdermabrasion. This allows us to control the power of the exfoliation, but also how gentle we can go to, as over exfoliation can have as many undesirable side effects as over-exfoliating. It will give you super soft velvety skin.
4.Bright healthy skin
Microdermabrasion can improve circulation in the skin by not only increasing blood flow but also lymphatic drainage. This aids cell function in many ways.
By increasing blood flow we will bring more oxygen and nutrients to the cells, giving more vibrancy and health to your skin. Stopping that dull sallow look.
By having a healthy skin this has a flow on effect on other cell functions to also become more efficient, for example, the production of collagen and elastin, and balancing oil flow.
The increase in lymphatic drainage means that waste products from cells are carried away faster, meaning there is less build-up of debris which can lead to acne and congestion.

We have noticed at Shine skin and body how many of you are at a loss as to what you can do about your skin. You have googled (toothpaste on your pimples??) used harsh products for oily/acne skin which made you red and irritated, went to a doctor and was given antibiotics or a dermatologist and recommended Roaccutane.
I want to start by telling you a story of a client who came to see me. She had been getting breakouts for about 2.5 yrs, mainly on her cheeks. her doctor recommended a dermatologist for her to see. She went on antibiotics for 2 years on and off. It would clear up her acne, only to return within a few months. When i saw her she had been to her dermatologist 3 days earlier who in desperation gave her a script for Roaccutane. (A very powerful acne drug with some very long lasting nasty side effects) She came to me as she didn’t want to take it, but didn’t know what to do. We did a full skin consultation with her and skin analysit. We went into depth about what happened when the acne occurred, medications, lifestyle, diet, hormones, skincare and make-up. I had a suspicion…. After starting her facial and doing a skin analysis my suspicion was right. It was her bronzer- It contained talc (as many do) and the most intense part of her breakouts was on her bronzer line. We extracted, she brought new make-up, came back for only 1 more facial and now her skin is clear. A proper consult diving into her history in a lot of depth was all that was needed.
And that is why we now have Shine Skin Solutions. It is a once of treatment that we then recommend your ongoing plan.
We hear the same story a lot….
I went somewhere else and they only did a few extractions.
The said they did extractions, but when i got there they said they didn’t.
The girl didn’t know what she was doing.
People are so desperate and excited when they find us they just want us to keep going and going.
There are only so many extractions we can do in a facial, but with a lot people we wish we had longer. If it be time to do more extractions, or time to have a massage after all the bad (good??) stuff. So we have been working hard in coming up with some great packages for you all.
As we are famous for our extractions we thought we would take all the hard work out and make up some great packages to give you the most results possible.
This package is for those of you who suffer badly from acne. It includes your back, chest and face for an intensive treatment. It starts with a 30 min back treatment that’s a double cleanse a BHA peel and extractions. We then move onto a 70min extraction facial and add in chest as well.

In this package you receive an extra 20mins of extractions (on top of what we already do) An LED light therapy is chosen for your skin (to kill bacteria, to heal or to reduce inflammation) We finish off with a high frequency treatment which zaps surface bacteria, speeds up the healing time and reduces your chances of reoccurring breakouts.

Alesia here, I wanted to start contributing to the blog and seeing as I have a facial special going at the moment, I thought I would start with the wonderful benefits of facials. Our special which is on until 20th March 2015 is Book a 1hr massage and receive a 30min facial for free.
Here is my 1st blog for you all.
You may merely enjoy the pampering and relaxation you feel when receiving a facial treatment, but most people don’t understand the benefits that a good professional facial offer.
Most people will wait until they encounter a skin concern (breakouts, dryness, pigmentation) or have a special event before coming in for a facial. This is o.k. but problems can be avoided by regular facials.
Here are some reason why you should have a regular routine.
Your skin is always on display and often has the power to dictate how good we feel about ourselves. Investing in your skin has more value than buying a new dress or going out to a fancy restaurant.
Hope to see you soon for a great massage and facial 🙂
