Hereditary and environmental factors combined with aging and lifestyle habits can impact the way you look. You may notice that your face has started to become wrinkled, saggy, oily, and prone to acne. Rather than hedge your proverbial bets on over-the-counter products like soaps or lotions reversing these damages, you can get better results with SilkPeel® treatments at our center in Spring Valley. Find out what this treatment is and how it can benefit the look and quality of your skin.
What is SilkPeel®?
SilkPeel® treatments are non-invasive skin care procedures that take about 30 minutes, can be performed entirely in our office and cause no discomfort. They essentially involve exfoliating the top layers of your skin by removing debris like dead skin cells. As your new skin grows in, you are left with an appearance that looks healthy and free from signs of aging and damages.
The treatments utilize serums that are tailored for each patient’s individual skin care needs. They do not involve the use of harsh chemicals or laser lights like microdermabrasion or laser skin peels. SilkPeel® treatments are safe and gentler than many other cosmetic skin care treatment options.
Skin Conditions Treated with SilkPeel® Treatments
This treatment can be used to remedy a host of skin conditions, including the following:
• Oily skin
• Dry skin
• Sun or age spots
• Nasal folds
• Laugh lines
• Crow’s feet
It can be applied to the face, neck, chest and hands, along with any other part of the body deemed appropriate by our provider.
How Are Treatments Done?
As mentioned, these treatments are done on an outpatient basis in our office and are quick and easy to undergo. They take about 30 minutes and are not invasive. If desired, you can also choose to undergo a 60-minute treatment session.
They also do not require that you spend time recovering at home. You can get back to your normal routine the same day.
To start the procedure, our specialist will thoroughly cleanse the treated area to remove debris and to minimize complications like discoloration or infection. Next, we will apply the diamond-tipped SilkPeel® hand piece to your skin and move it across the treated area. The piece exfoliates the upper layer of your skin and removes dead skin cells and other debris.
The hand piece also applies the solution being used during the treatment. The serum contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to encourage healthy skin cell growth and to nourish your skin.
You should notice immediate improvements in your skin after your treatment session. These procedures can be repeated monthly to help you maintain your new look. You can also maintain it at home by using high-quality cleansers, eye creams and moisturizers and by wearing sunscreen before going outside.
SilkPeel® is a viable alternative to cosmetic skin care treatments like chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing. You get nearly instant and long-lasting results as well as younger and healthier looking skin. We are pleased to offer this effective treatment at Bella Tu Med Spa.
