The SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion skin care procedure is design to improve the appearance of skin with just one or a series of treatments. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, does not cause pain, and does not require any downtime. Similar to microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel® treatment involves the removal of outer layers of skin through exfoliation techniques. However, the SilkPeel® treatment differs from microdermabrasion because it employs use of various treatment serums specially formulated to treat specific skin conditions.
SilkPeel® Treatment Candidates
SilkPeel® is designed to treat a range of skin conditions. It can:
- Treat oily or acne-prone skin
- Hydrate dry skin
- Minimize the appearance of wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of age and sun spots
The SilkPeel® treatment can be used on your face, neck, chest, hands, feet, and other areas of your body to rejuvenate your appearance.
The SilkPeel® Procedure
To begin the SilkPeel® procedure, the specialist will clean the face to remove any make-up, dirt, or other debris that has accumulated on the skin. Next, the SilkPeel® hand piece will be applied to the skin and move the along the treatment area. The SilkPeel® hand piece is specially designed to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin, suction away the dead skin cells, and saturate the skin with the treatment solution. The serum penetrates the outer dermis to reach deeper layers of skin, infusing it with vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants, and increasing the effectiveness of treatment.
Results of the SilkPeel® treatment are immediately visible. The skin will look and feel smoother, and the skin will have a healthy glow. For the best possible results, patients can undergo SilkPeel® treatment every month. Patients should also adopt an at-home skin care regimen to maintain SilkPeel® results; this includes the use of sunscreen, facial cleaners, moisturizers, and eye creams.
SilkPeel® Treatment Costs
SilkPeel® treatments generally cost between $100 and $200. Patients that purchase a series of treatments, or package deal, usually get the best deal on the price of each individual treatment.
Although SilkPeel® treatment offers excellent skin care results, it is not capable of producing the dramatic results that can be achieved with more invasive treatments. If you are looking for a more effective solution to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars, you may be interested in:
- Chemical peels: Unlike SilkPeel® treatment, chemical peels incorporate the use of an abrasive, chemical solution to stimulate the removal of outer layers of skin.
- Laser skin resurfacing: In laser skin resurfacing, ablative lasers are used to remove the outer layers of skin.
- IPL Photofacials: The intense-pulsed light, or IPL, treatment involves the use of flashes of light that cause collagen and blood vessels to constrict, reducing the appearance of many types of skin flaws.
Depending on the extent of your skin imperfections, multiple treatment sessions may be required with IPL photofacials, chemical peels, and laser skin resurfacing.
