The purpose of any type of microdermabrasion is to remove dead, compacted skin cells which dull the skin, make it rough and prevent intended penetration of active skin products.

Better than classic microdermabrasion

**Silk Peel Dermal Infusion not only smooths the surface and vacuum, but also infuses the skin with selected serums. In our office this is preferred to standard “dry” microdermabrasion.

Classic medical microdermabrasion uses medical grade crystals that are vacuumed across the outer surface of the skin at high velocity, using a closed loop power system and hand piece. You can think of it as a little controlled sand blasting for your face, neck and chest.

The crystals exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, exposing living skin cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients. The underlying epidermis is also stimulated by abrasion and vacuum. This promotes generation of new collagen that thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of aging.

Microdermabrasion is ideal for many skin concerns

The procedure has proven to be clinically effective for dry or oily skin, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, hyper pigmentation, acne prone skin, surface comedone removal and scar tissue reduction (scar improvement requires aggressive levels).
