What is Microdermabrasion? The SkinBase™ Facial microdermabrasion treatment uses a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skins outermost layers of dead cells. Your therapist will use the handset to direct the stream of crystal over the treatment area and, where necessary, target specific zones. The handset then uses a mild suction to draw away the crystal and skin debris to reveal your new and improved complexion.

The SkinBase™ Facial is chemical free, non-invasive yet achieves amazing results revealing younger, healthier looking skin from the very first treatment. The skins appearance is further improved through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.

The Microdermabrasion Facial is a progressive rather than aggressive treatment, during which you’ll feel completely relaxed and pampered with no discomfort from the facial. Our relaxing beauty salon is separate to the hairdressing department and you will feel rejuvenated after your skin care treatment with us at The Salon St Albans.

How does microdermabrasion work? Over the course of your facial treatments 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.

With each of your subsequent SkinBase™ treatments, the intensity of the facial microdermabrasion can be increased – reaching to deeper layers and successfully removing acne scarring, lifting pigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion? In as little as 30 minutes a microdermabrasion facial will firm up, revitalise and leave you with more youthful looking skin. During a course of treatments, wrinkles and fine lines will disappear, acne and acne scarring will be significantly reduced and dull and tired skin will be restored to glowing health.

Brave The Shave is a way to stand proudly alongside men, women and children with cancer.

Cancer can turn the world upside down and that’s especially true when it comes to appearance. People with cancer go through hair loss and changes to their appearance that can affect everything from the way they look to how they feel.

All the money raised will mean Macmillan Cancer Support can support people who are facing a difficult time so that they can start to feel more in control.

One of our brave clients took part in this amazing cause and raised money for Macmillan Cancer Support and also donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs to girls and boys across the UK who have sadly lost their hair to Cancer treatment and other illness.


Samantha ‘Braves the Shave” on Friday 24th March! Losing her locks in order to support those who face this challenge often with cancer treatment. Samantha is raising awareness and we are just over the moon to be part of this.


Please support Samantha who lost her grandfather and is ‘braving the shave’ to show her support for all those who face cancer and other serious illnesses. DONATE

eyebrow threading st albans
October 19, 2016

Eyebrow threading has become a real must have beauty treatment in the last 10 years. This ancient technique is something that is not new to our founder Aisha Khayat, who leant the skill from her cousin in her early teens.

Aisha was one of the pioneers of this art form, threading, in St Albans when she launched Glamourize Hair and Beauty offering threading to a historic Roman City in Hertfordshire. By the time the salon had become established a business expansion was underway and the salon became known as Ginger & Lime. We are now The Salon St Albans, and have grown an expansive client base and have a fully functioning eyebrow bar at The Salon St Albans.

Our brow bar offers threading, waxing, tinting, high definition hd brows, express lashes and tips on how to create the perfect high definition eyebrows. For a full list of our services visit our service menu.
