With so many types of facial rejuvenation treatments available, deciding on the right one may come down to the list of side effects. If you are looking to eliminate blemishes, erase wrinkles or address hyperpigmentation without any major side effects, Silk Peel Microdermabrasion, also called Silk Peel Dermalinfusion, may be right for you. Although any cosmetic procedure may have associated risks, this procedure removes the epidermis in a non-invasive manner without major side effects.

Silk Peel and Microdermabrasion both address wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation or discoloration, dry or dehydrated skin, rough skin and acne blemishes. The main differences between traditional Microdermabrasion and Silk Peel are the use of crystals in one and the addition of serums in the other.

Microdermabrasion uses tiny, non-allergenic crystals to remove the outer layer of dead skin. During the procedure, a special hand-held device is used to blast aluminum oxide crystals on to the skin and then vacuum up dead skin cells, dirt and used crystals. Because of the abrasive nature of the crystals, skin is often left red and sensitive as the crystals provide deep exfoliation while stripping away the top layer of the skin. Other side effects of microdermabrasion include the inability to reach surfaces of the skin such as close to the eyes as well as crystals left behind that could not be suctioned as it is sometimes difficult to remove them all. 

The Silk Peel Dermalinfusion facial is an advance form of microdermabrasion that provides hydration and nutrients while exfoliating the skin. The Silk Peel suctions away dead skin cells while applying customized serums to treat specific skin conditions. Silk Peel uses a gentle vacuum with a diamond shaped tip that opens the pores while removing the outer layer of skin. When the pores are open, the custom serum penetrates deep into the newly exfoliated skin. Treated areas of skin can be on the face, neck and décolleté. There are 4 types of serums used depending on the condition of the skin and the issues requiring treatment. These include a hydrating serum (for dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles), Vitamin C serum (for sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles), Lumixyl serum (for brighter complexion and melasma), and a clarity serum (for inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne and acne scars). Serums used in Silk Peel will address the specific skin needs while stimulating new skin growth to revitalize the skin’s appearance. Silk Peel Microdermabrasion typically gives twice the benefits as a standard microdermabrasion treatment in just under half an hour. 

Silk Peel Microdermabrasion side effects may include redness of the skin following the procedure, bruising, sensitivity or peeling but these should subside within a few hours. The procedure itself is painless but the exfoliating of the skin may cause a mild tightening of the skin. If you are looking to achieve an immediate radiant glow with no major side effects, call us at 602-867-7546 or visit WEBSITE to book today.
