This is the non-invasive, newest generation of microdermabrasion.
Frankly, it rocks!!! Here's why:
- the top layer of skin (stratum corneum) is being evenly abraded (exfoliated)
- the skin is absorbing a medical grade treatment serum at the same time
- non-invasive, making this a great lunch time treatment
- used to optimize laser treatments also
You'll be most likely to find this treatment at a dermatologist's office. Price per treatment range from $100.00 to $300.00.
There's a diamond head tip that evenly abrades the skin. The tip ranges from high coarse to low coarse. There's also a "no-coarse" tip for those who just need infusion of serum and very little stimulation. The Silk Peel can be used on ANY skin condition. Men too! Hands too! It leaves the skin silky smooth and firm.
I love the way this treatment instantly rejuvenates, rehydrates and brightens my skin. I recommend getting the face, neck, chest and hands done. Treatment time is about an hour +/-. You can get a series of 6 to 8 treatments and/or monthly for maintenance.
I did a shorter series and was also using my retin-a, for a deeper result. I don't recommend getting this done if you're peeling from retin-a or really badly sunburned. Not while using accutane. The "no-coarse" tip would be best for pure hydration/no exfoliation.
There's a slight sandpaper feeling along with a little vacuum that sucks the dead protein cells (dead skin) off of the skin. It feels comfortable without being sissy-ish.
If you're skin needs a major pick me up, give this a try.
