SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is a popular treatment which improves the appearance of the skin. It takes about half an hour, is gentle and painless, and requires no rest time. This treatment exfoliates the outer layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells to create a fresh and healthy look. It is similar to microdermabrasion, which also cleanses the outer layer through exfoliation. The main difference is that SilkPeel involves the infusion of serums, which can target specific skin conditions. The treatments are safe to carry out on any age or skin type as the procedure is customizable.
Microdermabrasion (old technique):
Microdermabrasion is a quick, simple cosmetic treatment with no downtime. It is a dry procedure in which fine crystals or diamonds are used to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. Two types of crystals are commonly used: aluminum oxide and sodium bicarbonate. The latter is often preferred as the crystals are more gentle on the skin. This makes them an ideal choice for a facial or relaxation treatment. The small risk with crystals is that they can be released into the system, and inhaled or ingested by the patient. However, this is a minor risk and should not dissuade patients from seeking this treatment.
The other form of microdermabrasion involves diamonds rather than crystals. Dead skin cells are gently rubbed away using the diamond-based end of an application device. The cells are removed easily due to the roughness of the diamond surface. The benefits of this technique are that it can reach areas near the eyes and mouth as well as there being no risk of particles entering the body. The detriment is that it can be a harsher treatment than crystal microdermabrasion.
We believe that the SilkPeel technique is more effective than dry microdermabrasion as it combines abrasion and vacuum extraction of the skin. This 3-in-1 technique exfoliations, deeply cleanses the pores, and infuses serums into the skin. The pores are opened easily with this procedure which makes the infusion of the serums more effective. The choice of serum depends on the specific skin problem: aging, excessive pigmentation, dry skin, blemishes, or rough texture.
First, the specialist cleans the face to get rid of any makeup, dirt or debris present. A clarifying mask can be applied for a few minutes to pull out impurities and decongest pores. After that, the SilkPeel hand piece is applied to the skin, gently tracing over the treatment area. That area is typically the face and neck, but can also be other areas of the body. The skin is exfoliated and dead cells are suctioned away, while the serum penetrates a deeper layer. Vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants delivered by the serum rejuvenate the skin. We design a special program for each skin problem with along with a Skinceutical regimen.
SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is ideal for treating oily and acne-ridden skin, as well as minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. It can hydrate dry skin and make age and sun spots less noticeable. It’s a simple “lunch hour” procedure that works well before a big event, when you want to look your best. Your skin will look and feel smoother with a healthy glow. However, the changes are not as dramatic as more invasive procedures, such as chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing. The benefit is that SilkPeel avoids the side effects and downtime of these techniques. We also find that SilkPeel goes well with Skinceutical products, as there is a synergistic effect.
