Pros and Cons of SilkPeel Dermal Infusion

If you’ve have undergone microdermabrasion treatments or had a deep chemical peel, you may be a good candidate for the SilkPeel Dermal Infusion treatment. This innovative exfoliation treatment is a step above the standard microdermabrasion procedure because it stimulates collagen production and also delivers any topical treatments deep into the skin’s layers. The result is healthy, strong and resilient looking skin that’s free of fine lines and light wrinkles.

Here’s a close look at the benefits and drawbacks of the SilkPeel Dermal Infusion procedure:


How the SilkPeel Dermal Infusion Treatment Works

The SilkPeel Dermabrasion combines diamond-wand microdermabrasion technology with a unique solution delivery system that penetrates deep into the skin’s layers. The skin is not broken in any way, but the top layer of skin is gently buffed away with the diamond head. This process removes dead skin cells, any pigmentation on the top layer of skin, and also buffs away fine lines and wrinkles. The topical solution that is applied during the procedure sinks deep into the dermal layer and begins to activate the cell regeneration process.

The SilkPeel Dermal Infusion procedure is available at many medical spas and cosmetic dermatology centers around the United States.

Key Benefits of the SilkPeel Dermal Infusion

The SilkPeel Dermal Infusion procedure offers a number of benefits beyond conventional microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Can be used on almost any skin type
  • No down time. You can return to work or other activities immediately after the procedure
  • Can be performed over a lunch hour – this treatment typically takes just 20 minutes
  • Some results after the first treatment, but gradual results with ongoing treatments
  • Rehydrates dry skin
  • Helps reduce the appearance of acne scars
  • Can buff away fine lines and wrinkles
  • Can lighten skin pigmentation
  • Choice of different topical products – the aesthetician or physician will decide which topical solution to use based on your most important skin needs

Drawbacks of the SilkPeel Dermal Infusion

While the SilkPeel Dermal Infusion procedure offers several benefits, there are some drawbacks to keep in mind before undergoing this treatment. First, you will not see a significant difference in the tone and texture of your skin until several weeks after the first treatment, and will need to undergo a series of treatments at least two weeks apart in order to trigger cell regeneration. In some cases, getting rid of acne scars and deeper wrinkles may require up to 10 treatments.

People with sensitive skin may experience some discomfort and tingling throughout the procedure, and the skin will feel ‘tight’ and slightly uncomfortable for a few hours after the procedure.

It is very important that all patients who undergo the SilkPeel treatment wear sun protection and also stay away from direct sunlight for several days after the procedure so that there is no risk of hyperpigmentation.
