The Silk Peel

The Silk Peel (Dermalinfusion) is an advance form of Microdermabrasion. The Silk Peel is a skin-resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of condition-specific serums to improve skin health, function and appearance.

 

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive mechanical exfoliation procedure for superficial skin resurfacing.  By removing the uppermost layers of the skin in a controlled manner, cell renewal is stimulated with regeneration of a healthier epidermis and dermis.  After repeated microdermabrasion treatments an increase in dermal thickness is seen with new collagen and elastin deposition. Improvement in skin texture, pores, and epidermal hyperpigmentation are seen. 

 

Traditionally, microdermabrasion devices have used crystals with negative pressure to draw the skin to the hand-piece tip, and crystals superficially abrade the skin’s surface as they pass across the epidermis. Microdermabrasion has minimal discomfort, and no “downtime” of skin flaking and peeling.

 

Recent advances in microdermabrasion technology combine exfoliation with dermal infusion (the Silk Peel). During this process, topical products are delivered into the skin at the time of exfoliation. This takes advantage of the transient disruption to the epidermal barrier that occurs with removal of the stratum corneum to better deliver medications into the deeper dermal layers. The Silk Peel is more controlled than microdermabrasion in the way that it removes the top layer of the skin, to produce a better result. The Silk Peel uses the controlled specific vacuum pressure to pull the skin up into a chamber in the hand piece, where the skin is evenly abraded with diamonds as the abrasive tip to very consistently remove the stratum corneum, the depth can be controlled by setting the vacuum on the machine. This is significant because traditional microdermabrasion machines rely on the operator to apply the same pressure, at the same speed, consistently over the skin.  It also can enhance results for conditions such as dehydration, hyperpigmentation, acne, and rosacea based on the products that are used. 

 

The Silk Peel is fully customizable and the perfect solution to address a wide variety of skin concerns and conditions from head-to-toe and is suitable for all skin types and tones. And just like microdermabrasion, there is minimal discomfort, and no “downtime” of skin flaking and peeling.
