Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses microcrystals to exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin, encouraging the growth of collagen and other healing proteins. By removing the outermost layer of the skin, microdermabrasion eliminates dead skin cells and impurities from the surface of the skin, promoting its overall health and wellness.
This procedure can be used to improve the appearance of:
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
- Mild scars
Each microdermabrasion procedure typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete and involves little to no downtime. While most patients experience some degree of redness, this usually fades within a few days of treatment. Visible improvements can be achieved after a single treatment, but most patients need to undergo between five and twelve treatments, each spaced between two and three weeks apart, to see significant, long-lasting changes.
The SilkPeel® is a non-invasive dermalinfusion treatment that can be used improve overall skin quality, texture, and tone. This procedure is entirely non-invasive and uses an effective but gentle combination of exfoliating and moisturizing techniques to improve the appearance of oily or acne-prone skin, hydrate dry skin, and minimize the appearance of age spots and sun spots. The SilkPeel® can be performed on nearly any area of the body, but the most popular treatment spots include face, neck, chest, hands, and feet.
Before treatment begins, any make-up, dirt, and debris on the patient’s face is removed. The SilkPeel® handpiece is then passed carefully over the treatment area. This handpiece exfoliates the outer layers of the skin, suctioning away dead skin cells while simultaneously saturating the skin with a healing, moisturizing serum. Because of the exfoliation the SilkPeel® provides, this serum reaches the deeper layers of the skin, infusing them with healing minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that encourage the growth of healthier, more youthful-looking tissues Each treatment typically takes 30 minutes to complete, and brings patients little to no downtime or negative side effects.
