In addition, SilkPeel® is unique because it does not use crystals or other abrasive particles that can irritate the skin. The SilkPeel® features simultaneous exfoliation and topical infusion for moisturization, treatment of acne, and removal of age spots through a selection of topical formulations specific to the patient’s skin condition. The SilkPeel® features more than 10 combinations of medical grade diamond treatment heads and handpiece tip sizes for optimal treatment geared toward the patient. Following SilkPeel® treatment, patients can immediately return to normal activities.
Chemical peels restore and energize the texture of your skin by reversing damage from previous, chronic sun exposure. A series of chemical peels help remove unwanted age spots, improve the quality of the skin through exfoliation, and to replenish and invigorate the skin. In addition, chemical peels are also performed to control acne breakouts and refresh the skin to a smooth clarity. By unclogging the pores and exfoliating the skin, chemical peels help prevent flare-ups of acne as well as treat existing lesions. There are different types of chemical peels including from glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and bleaching peels to rejuvenate your skin and maintain a clear complexion.
