Microdermabrasion is probably not be considered by most of us as a recent advancement in the filed of cosmetic science but it is certainly one of the most popular procedures. It essentially buffs away the outer surface of the skin using an abrasive tool in order to reveal the younger, fresher skin that lies underneath.
SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM is a new format of microdermabrasion that provides non-invasive exfoliation and the delivery of skin specific topical solutions under pressure. Unlike traditional technologies that rely on messy crystals or other irritating particles, SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM's diamond tip head evenly abrades the skin, exfoliating damaged skin cells while delivering targeted topical solutions deep into the skin.

What is the procedure of the treatment?
After cleansing and preparing your skin, your therapist will perform the procedure by making several passes down your neck and across your face with the specialized handpiece. Each pass abrades away dead skin, thoroughly and evenly exfoliating while infusing the treatment solution into the skin. In just under an hour, the treatment is over with results that last for weeks. Your skin immediately looks clearer and brighter and definitely feels smoother.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM is for you if you have one of these conditions:
- Uneven pigmentation, dark spots
- Cystic and pustular types of acne
- Dehydrated skin and fine lines
- Dull and tired skin
Your doctor will choose one or more of the specialized Pro Infusions, formulated to address a variety of skin conditions. The SilkPeelTM infuses these products deep into the skin where they are most effective. The solution doesn't just sit on top of your skin like a lotion or cream would, instead the patented SilkPeelTM handpiece deeply delivers the vitamins, antioxidants and other therapeutic ingredients that your skin needs most.
Does it hurt? How long is the downtime ?
No, the treatment is comfortable and not painful. It can be done without any local anaesthesia. There is no downtime after the treatment, that is why it is a perfect lunch-time facial.
Besides facial skin, what other body parts can be treated with SilkpeelTM ?
The handpiece is gentle enough to treat dull and stained lips. With SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM Body Wand, it can be used to body parts like hands, feet, neck, décolletage, chest and back, improving the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite, acne and other skin imperfections.
This clinically-proven concept of skin resurfacing can be used by itself or as a combined therapy with lasers and other light treatments.
