More than just a microdermabrasion system, the SilkPeel™ is the only procedure that provides both traditional exfoliation and delivery of specific topical solutions under pressure, leaving patients with fresher-feeling and better-looking skin. It is not only painless but also very soothing with immediate and noticeable improvement of skin texture and tone. The closed-loop vacuum system utilizes a diamond tip to exfoliate the outer layer of skin while infusing beneficial topicals and stimulating new cell growth.
Your provider at AllPhases Dermatology will tailor treatment to you. Microdermabrasion is considered safe for all skin types, and is appropriate for Asian and dark-skinned patients who may be at risk for skin discoloration with other types of treatment. There are no serious risks associated with microdermabrasion, although some patients experience mild redness and irritation, and patients older than 70 may have a slightly escalated risk of bruising and skin abrasions. Avoiding sun exposure after microdermabrasion is important because it may have removed some of the skin's natural protection.
