FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What exactly is SilkPeel™?
SilkPeel™ is a new, breakthrough procedure that combines precision exfoliation with DermalInfusion to address patient-specific skin conditions. Operating on a closed-loop vacuum system, the SilkPeel's diamond treatment head exfoliates the skin while delivering a topical dermaceutical at a controlled intensity. The SilkPeel™ stimulates new cell growth and addresses your specific skin condition, giving your skin the revitalization you want.
Is it safe?
SilkPeel™ is a simple, non-invasive procedure performed by a fully trained physician or aesthetician. The risks of traditional Microdermabrasion are eliminated by the SilkPeel's crystal-free technology and patients experience little to no discomfort.
How long does the procedure take?
Treatments typically last about 20 minutes. Plus, because the SilkPeel™ delivers a dermaceutical during treatment, your post-treatment protocol is quick and easy.
Do you have a specific topical for my skin condition?
SilkPeel™ addresses the most common skin conditions with topicals for hydrating, skin lightening, and acne.
What will my skin look like after a treatment?
Your skin will have a warm, pinkish glow that will usually fade in about 30 minutes, leaving your skin looking healthy and renewed.
Will I miss work or have to alter my social schedule?
SilkPeel™ can easily be performed on your lunch hour so you can return immediately to your normal activities.
What do I need to do after a treatment?
Your physician or aesthetician will recommend moisturizers, hydrating cleansers, serums and sunscreen you can use at home to enhance and maintain results.
How long does it take to see results?
While you may see visible results after the first treatment, lasting and more significant results will be seen after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 7 to 10 days apart, supplemented by a daily post-care routine.
Will there be any pain or discomfort?
You may feel a mild exfoliation and tightening that leaves the skin feeling healthy and smooth. The moisture of the topicals also leaves your skin with a cool, refreshed feeling.
