The secret to glowing, healthy skin is regular exfoliation. It’s no wonder that countless products and treatments exist that are devoted solely to sloughing away layers of dead skin to reveal a soft, supple complexion underneath. Treatments range from over-the-counter do-it-yourself variety to heavy duty professional resurfacing procedures performed by a medical professional. SilkPeel Dermalinfusion falls into the latter category, offered primarily at plastic surgeon’s offices as a non-invasive “medi-spa” skin rejuvenation option.
SilkPeel Dermal infusion uses a diamond tip microdermabrasion (no crystals) to exfoliate skin cells while delivering liquid treatment solutions that penetrate the skin for a desired effect. The treatment can be customized with different sized handpiece tips, vacuum flow settings and skincare formulations. The SilkPeel promises deep exfoliation with the additional benefits of cellular regeneration, reduction in fine lines, wrinkles and skin elasticity, photoaging and pigmentation. SilkPeel also claims to be an effective acne scar and acne treatment. A series of 4-6 sessions are recommended for best results.
As with any superficial skin treatment results are only temporary at best. Scraping off top layers of the epidermis may have a short-lived plumping effect but after a few days the skin will return to its previous condition. For permanent skin rejuvenation, changes need to occur deep down at the dermal layer. Only laser, light therapies and some types of chemical peels and medical-grade products have the capability to penetrate to the dermal depths necessary to boost collagen production and regenerate skin tissues. Otherwise the healing mechanism that permanently reverses skin aging and improves texture cannot happen.
Dr. Mosser and his trusted clinicians feel that the best skin resurfacing with long-lasting results can be achieved using the Halo fractional laser by Sciton or by performing a series of Vi Peels, chemical peels that use a combination of Trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Retin-A, Hydroquinone and Kojic acid to address a range of skin tone, texture concerns, as well as to reduce acne scars, sun damage, wrinkles and for stretch mark removal.
Volume loss, dynamic lines and texture irregularities are treated using proven medical procedures like Botox or Dysport, dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, and Microneedling with PRP. For mild acne, pigmentation and vascular issues our BroadBand BBL devices can deliver excellent improvement.
A good home care program can be a great addition to the medical spa services discussed above. After investing in a Halo laser treatment or a series of BBL sessions, patients’ smooth new skin and vibrant complexion can be maintained for much longer with medical-grade skin care products. We carry trusted brands such as Skin Ceuticals, Obagi and Neocutis and offere a wide range of cleansers, sunscreens, serums and moisturizers. Your clinician will recommend the proper products to address your needs.
