What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. This peel can provide substantial improvement in irregular skin tones, aged and sun-damaged skin.
SilkPeel is a microdermabrasion method designed as an alternative to the normal mechanical or chemical means. Specifically, the SilkPeel tool utilizes a diamond-tipped “wand” that is lightly grazed over the skin in contrast to aluminum-crystal based mechanical exfoliation that must be used somewhat vigorously. This provides the advantage of reduced discomfort during and after exfoliation, especially concerning patients with sensitive skin. Skin problems that may be treated by SilkPeel include, but are not limited to:
- Dry skin
Additionally, no downtime is required, allowing immediate reapplication of makeup and return to daily activity after the procedure.
The SkinPeel DermalInfusion is another type of exfoliation; a chemical exfoliation that is commonly used in conjunction with the mechanical SkinPeel. The DermalInfusion applies various enhancing serums to the shallow and deep layers of the skin almost concurrently with the mechanical exfoliation, giving the skin the most complete care with the least discomfort. These serums are specific to various issues common to the skin, such as dryness or acne, and may be used together or individually with no impairment in effectiveness.
