Frequently Asked Question

If you are looking for a skin treatment that delivers immediate results, won't take hours out of your busy schedule, and will leave you with noticeably better skin in under 30 minutes, then SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion™ is the best procedure offered today.
The  SilkPeel Dermalinfusion® is the latest technology in topical skin care. It uses a diamond tip  to precisely remove a specific amount of the top dead skin layer and special infusions are applied within the same treatment.These infusions are tailored to treat a patient’s given skin problem(s).

Typically, topical solutions are blocked from entering the skin by the top layer of tissue, preventing full effectiveness. By first removing this barrier layer, an infusion of collagen stimulating preparations can directly enter the tissues. Used together, we can now offer unprecedented combinations of treatments to help you look your very best!

Silk Peel helps improve:

Fine lines and wrinkles

Sun damage and rough skin

Uneven skin tones

Acne

Dry dehydrated ski

 

The other amazing benefit of this new technology is that persons of colour, including those of Indian, Asian and African descent can all benefit. Previously, concerns about post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (the skin changing colour as an undesired effect of treatment). Now, even patients with a history of pigment change problems can safely be treated with this technique.

 

The SilkPeel feels like a typical exfoliation treatment. Your skin may feel tight and slightly irritated, but it will be smooth and silky to the touch.

 

1. Smoothness: healthy skin is smooth. Little bumps on the skin from blocked pores can be safely treated with Silkpeel Dermalinfusion, because removing the plug allows the normal sebum to escape.

2. Colour: Healthy skin has a normal color variation, but there should be a smooth transition between areas. Blotchy and/or darker areas look unappealing and can sometimes be difficult to hide using cosmetics.

3. Luminance/Radiance/Translucency: Healthy skin has a property which is difficult to describe in words, but you’ll know it when you see it. Silkpeel Dermalinfusion helps you get that youthful glow back into your skin. It looks healthier because it is healthier.

Typically, a patient requires six treatments, two weeks apart, for maximum effectiveness, but acne-scarred patients may need a longer treatment program. Each treatment lasts about 20 to 30 minutes.
Your results will last several months, but depending on your skin type, exercise regimen, lifestyle, diet and smoking history, you may require ongoing maintenance.

After your skin assessment, we will recommend a course of skin care products that will amplify the results of your Silkpeel Dermalinfusion.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that you tell us if you have a history of cold sores, since these viral infections can spread to the treated skin areas.

When you get a SilkPeel, you won't have any downtime, and don't have to worry about dealing with irritated or inflamed skin. Within about 30 minutes, SilkPeel's wet exfoliation leaves your skin silky-smooth, hydrated, bright, and full of the youthful, healthy glow that we all desire.

If you have significant acne scars, we may have to treat your skin more aggressively; this may result in some temporary crusting and/or peeling. Some patients will experience a transitional period of skin pigment change that can be covered with cosmetics. We are happy to assist you with hiding these effects, until your skin has healed.
