Treating Keratosis Pilaris with Microdermabrasion

Ever wondered what the bumps on the back of your arms are called?. ‘Keratosis Pilaris’ is their name – or referred to as ‘chicken skin’.

It’s a common and harmless condition where the skin becomes rough and bumpy, a bit like when you’ve got goose bumps and can also appear red. These are caused by when too much keratin builds up in the skin’s hair follicles. There’s no cure for keratosis pilaris, but you may be able to improve the rash by using soap-free cleansers, moisturising and exfoliating.

Talking about exfoliating and making them bumps go away, Skin Base microdermabrasion exfoliating crystals helps remove the build-up and the hair follicle is cleared of debris leaving the skin looking and feeling smother and clearer.

Microdermabrasion – What is it?

The Skin Base facial is a painless microdermabrasion treatment that uses ultra-fine crystals to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. Crystals go across the skin and remove its outer layer. Whilst a small vacuum sweeps up the crystals and debris. Skin Base Microdermabrasion is a great facial for all skin types and is able to treat a bunch of skin conditions.
