SilkpeelAcne is one of the most common, damaging and challenging skin conditions for men and women of all ages. Even people who were fortunate enough to have clear skin throughout their teenage years can suddenly develop acne later in life.

Acne results from the obstruction and inflammation of the sebaceous glands, and it affects 80% of the human population. Acne typically begins in adolescence with hormonal changes. However, there are many older individuals who suffer from adult acne.

While for most of us, the odd zit here or there might not seem like such a big deal, for those who suffer or have suffered with moderate to severe acne, the damage is much more than just skin deep. The effects of deep cystic acne can affect your confidence, self-esteem and self-image to a degree far beyond what most people might even imagine. Even after the acne has subsided, many people remain scarred both physically and emotionally.

SilkPeel is a safe and painless skin care procedure that treats and improves the appearance of various skin conditions, including acne. The procedure provides non-invasive exfoliation and delivery of skin-specific topical solutions under pressure, leaving patients with fresher-feeling and better-looking skin. Compared to other skin care procedures that use chemicals, lasers or other invasive treatment, SilkPeel does not use crystals or other abrasive particles that can irritate or bring discomfort to the skin. The procedure is more comfortable with mild treatment that leaves the skin smooth to the touch.

SilkPeel is suitable for all skin types, including individuals that have sensitive skin. The treatment gently exfoliates dead skin and gets rid of impurities on the skin. In addition to improving acne scars, the range of services offered by SilkPeel includes treating excessively oily skin, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dull and dehydrated skin.

Although SilkPeel is a gentle and safe treatment, your skin will look slightly reddish during and after the procedure but this should disappear within a few hours. Your skin will also slightly peel off as a result of exfoliation of impurities and dead skin; it will feel smooth to the touch after.
