Silkpeel Dermalinfusion or hydrodermabrasion skin treatments combine non-invasive exfoliation with the infusion of skin-specific topical solutions to improve and revitalize the skin. An advanced form of microdermabrasion, Silkpeels are unique because they do not use crystals. This safe and painless treatment is one of our most popular non-laser treatments.
What is Silkpeel Dermalinfusion and what does it do?
Like microdermabrasion, Silkpeel Dermalinfusion treatments are non-invasive mechanical exfoliation treatments without chemicals that remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the treated area. They differ from traditional microdermabrasion treatments in that they use a patented technology to perform the treatment with a system that gently exfoliates with different treatment tips while infusing topical solutions at the same time. Different topical vitamins or a combination of topicals can be used for each patient so the treatment can be customized to treat hyperpigmentation, acne, photodamage, and dehydration.
What areas are treated with Silkpeel Dermalinfusion?
Most patients have Silkpeels done to the face; however, the neck and chest are also often done. Although Silkpeel treatments are most often done on their own, a mini version of the treatment can be done a few days after a deep IPL or FotoFacial treatment has been done to remove excess pigmentation or "coffee grounding" from these procedures. Also, we sometimes perform a Silkpeel in conjunction with a Laser Genesis treatment for an advanced "laser facial".
What is a Silkpeel Dermalinfusion treatment like?
To perform a Silkpeel treatment, your technician begins with a deep cleansing of the skin. Then a SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque is applied for a few minutes to pull out any impurities and decongest pores, while a deep massage is done to your face, neck, and arms. Next the Silkpeel treatment with customized solutions for your skin's concerns is done to the treated area, which takes about 15 minutes for a full face. After this step is completed, topical vitamins and minerals will be applied. Finally sunscreen is applied to the treated area. A full Silkpeel treatment takes about 50-60 minutes.
What kind of results can i expect from a Silkpeel Dermalinfusion treatment?
You should not expect significant results from a Silkpeel Dermalinfusion treatment, although results are a bit more siginficant than a traditional microdermabrasion. Because of the customized solutions which are infused into the skin during the treatment, you will have a refined, polished effect for the skin, and depending upon the solutions used, you may have some additional benefits to acne or hyperpigmentation. However, results cannot be compared to benefits from prescription acne medications or results from IPL and FotoFacials. After a Silkpeel treatment your skin should appear healthier and well-hydrated. These treatments are good to do before a big event, as they will make the skin look renewed and fresh. If you are doing these treatments in a series, you should expect to do them about once every 3-4 weeks, but because the machine is so gentle, you can truly have them done as often as you'd like. These treatments are safe to do on any age or skin type since the procedure is customizable.
How much does a Silkpeel Dermalinfusion treatment cost?
Silkpeel Dermalinfusion treatments (50-60 minutes) are $125 per treatment. Discounts are offered for packages of 5 or 10.
