Silk Peel

SilkPeel is a brand of microdermabrasion machine that uses a technique called "Dermalinfusion" to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. It is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that combines diamond tip exfoliation and vacuum suction to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve skin texture and tone.

 

During the SilkPeel treatment, a specialized handpiece is used to deliver a combination of exfoliation, suction, and infusion of targeted serums to the skin. The treatment can be customized to address various skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and dehydration. The suction component of the treatment can also stimulate collagen production, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin over time.

 

Most people find the procedure comfortable and tolerate it well. During the treatment, you may feel a slight suction sensation as the handpiece is moved across your skin, and a mild scratching or vibrating sensation as the diamond tip exfoliates your skin. Additionally, the infusion of targeted serums during the SilkPeel treatment can provide a soothing and hydrating effect on the skin, making the treatment more comfortable. Overall, SilkPeel is considered a gentle and well-tolerated skin treatment, suitable for most skin types and concerns.
