Your smoother, younger skin is just under the surface, waiting to emerge. Uncover it with microdermabrasion – a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. It uses a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. It’s a safe and natural way to exfoliate and rejuvenate your face while reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars, age spots and sun damage. It is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals or a laser.
Microdermabrasion produces a superficial ablation, primarily in the epidermis; therefore, this procedure is ineffective for deeper wrinkles or scars. However, for fine lines and more superficial scars, microdermabrasion can be an effective treatment with minimal risk and rapid recovery.
The procedure does not require anesthesia. It is painless, simple and quick to perform, can be repeated at short intervals, and does not significantly interrupt the patient’s life.
At FeelNew Medical Spa and Wellness center we are using SilkPeel Microdermabrasion – the latest advance in Microdermabrasion that combines precision non-invasive microdermabrasion exfoliation with Dermalinfusion, a deep delivery of skin-specific solutions, to improve and revitalize your skin. It performs exfoliation of the skin with medical grade diamonds while simultaneously infusing condition specific solutions deep into the skin. The face is the most commonly treated area, followed by hands, arms and neckline. The SilkPeel Microdermabrasion is a simple skin renewal technology, providing the over 30 population or those with mild to moderate damage with a conservative alternative to reach their skin enhancement goals. This procedure also maintains the results of more aggressive laser or PhotoFacial treatments used to rejuvenate and correct the skin.
SilkPeel Microdermabrasion treats the following conditions:
- Dull, uneven skin tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Dermalinfusion technology allows for the deep delivery of the following solutions into the skin:
- Hyaluronic acid : to plump and hydrate the skin
- Hydroquinone,a bleaching agent
- Salicylic acid: to reduce acne prone conditions
Microdermabrasion requires multiple treatments for maximum results. You will see results after the first treatment; however the most dramatic results occur between three and six treatments. We will schedule your sessions once every 7-10 days for the first 4-5 treatments. Another maintenance treatment should repeat as necessary every 4-6weeks.
The procedure itself takes only about 8-10 minutes, but pre and post treatment protocols take about 30-40 minutes.
Following the treatment, you may experience slight redness which will disappear in a few hours. The skin will feel soft and silky and may peel slightly. Normally there is no down time from SilkPeel Microdermabrasion. It is very important to use sunscreen conscientiously. If you use Retin A, it should be discontinued one day prior to and 48 hours after treatment.
At MGR’s FeelNu Medical Spa and Wellness Center in Pittsburgh we will be happy to answer any questions about the Microdermabrasion procedure and will provide you with full guidance on what to expect before, during, and after your treatment.
