As time goes on, age, the sun, and other factors can leave you with a variety of skin conditions. The skin loses its ability to naturally remove dead skin cells, leaving it looking older and duller. Luckily, technology keeps advancing and providing new solutions for these issues. SilkPeel Diamond Microdermabrasion is a perfect example of this and can help with a wide variety of skin issues. It is a simple and non-invasive procedure that can give you impressive results.
How Does SilkPeel Diamond Microdermabrasion Work?
The Diamond treatment head used in this procedure exfoliates the skin using a closed-loop vacuum system. Actual diamonds are used, providing the ultimate in exfoliation. At the same time, a topical dermaceutical is put on the skin. The intensity and type of dermaceutical can be tailored to your specific skin concerns. Skin conditions that can be effectively treated with this include:
- Acne and acne scarring
- Clogged pores and blackheads
- Uneven skin tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Superficial scars
- Sun damage
- Rough skin
Dry and dead skin cells are removed during this treatment. This reveals the healthy, glowing skin underneath. The process can also increase blood flow to your face, as well as stimulate collagen production.
SilkPeel Diamond Microdermabrasion Treatments
A treatment session lasts approximately 20 minutes. Your face will be thoroughly cleansed before beginning. There are topicals available to treat acne, deal with dehydration, and skin lightening for those with hyperpigmentation. You may notice a slight flushing after treatment, but this will fade within 30 minutes. Afterward, you will see noticeably healthier and younger looking skin.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment. You can go right back to using moisturizer and makeup afterward. While most people have this procedure done on their face, it can also be used on the chest and neck.
Results are often seen after just one treatment session. For long-lasting and even more significant results, you may need 4-6 treatments. These treatments should be spaced 7-10 days apart. It is important to follow up with a daily skin care routine. Maintenance treatments can be done several times a year.
