What is Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion?

  • Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion is a gentle, effective, non-invasive form of skin resurfacing
  • It can be used safely on all skin types with no down-time or discomfort
  • Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion is a unique, modern form of exfoliation which simultaneously delvers specifically chosen solutions for various skin conditions
  • Its patented handpiece exfoliates the skin evenly with a diamond tip, while devliering a flow of a medicated solution deep into the skin
  • Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion leaves the skin softer, smoother and brighter and address a variety of skin conditions such as:
    • Acne
    • Sun Damage
    • Abnormal pigmentation
    • Devitalized skin
    • Congested skin

Who can benefit from Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion?

  • Everyone – men and women of any skin type or colour
  • Skin that is:
    • Aging
    • Congested
    • Flaky
    • Dry
    • Devitalized
    • Thickened
    • Blemished
    • Dull

What areas can be treated?

  • In addition we can treat the:
    • Chest
    • Shoulders
    • Back
    • Hands
    • Knees
    • Elbows
    • Any body area can be treated

Why does the skin benefit from Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion?

  • Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin
  • As new cells form they push their way to the surface and then dead cells settle on the surface
  • This can cause enlarged pores, clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, and a dull appearance
  • As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance
  • The addition of medicated topical solutions with SilkPeel’s exfoliating action gives the skin the added benefit of a customized treatment which is infused into the skin, as dead cells are being removed.
  • This results in the medicated products penetrating more deeply, delivering peptides, antioxidants, exfoliants and other beneficial ingredients into the skin

How does Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion work?

  •  A gentle exfoliation is performed with a diamond tipped handpiece
  • The tip passes over the skin’s surface, and creates a gentle vacuum
  • The tip gently exfoliates approximately 20-25 microns of dead skin cells of the outermost layer (stratum corneum)
  • At the same time the uppermost layers of skin are infused with a solution specifically chosen for your skin type or any concerns that you may have.
  • Silk peel DermaInfusion can be done with four different solutions
    • Salicylic Acid for:
      • Oily, Acne-Prone Skin
    • Hyaluronic Acid for:
      • Dry and Dehydrated, aging skin
    • Lumixyl for:
      • Uneven skin tone and abnormal pigmentation
    • Vitamin C for:
      • Sun damaged skin

How many treatments do you need?

  • This treatment is meant to be progressive not aggressive
  • Results are typically immediate and even after one session the skin may appear soft, smooth and refreshed.
  • Usually treatments are performed every two to four weeks
  • A typical course of treatment is a series of six Silkpeel™ sessions
  • Maintenance treatments are suggested once every four to eight weeks but treatment plans are always customized to your individual needs and concerns

How long does it take?

  • The actual treatment usually takes 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the body area

What are the side effects?

  • One may experience a slight tingling, and afterward the skin may feel tighter, as if exposed to the wind or sun
  • There is minimal discomfort during the procedure and virtually no down time
  • The skin may appear slightly flushed and this generally fades in 12-24 hours
  • It is possible to develop an allergic reaction (contact dermatitis) to the medicated serums, but this is uncommon

Cautions:

  • If you suffer with cold sores, you should be cold sore free prior to a treatment to avoid the risk of them spreading
  • You need to discuss with the technician if you have any of these conditions: rosacea, dermatitis, skin cancers, easy bruising, Hepatitis C, AIDS, or are on blood thinners or Isotretinoin
  • If you are taking Isotretinoin, you must wait at least three months after your last dose to have a treatment.
  • If you use Retin A products, Glycolic acid products, facial scrubs or any skin care products that irritate the skin you should stop them for at least 2-3 days before and do not restart until 2-3 days after a treatment
  • Even though there is no danger if you are pregnant, we do not treat pregnant women or mothers who are nursing.
  • Protect for skin from the sun after a treatment with sunscreen
  • If you are planning on having injections for wrinkles the same day as your Silkpeel, the injections must be done AFTER your Silkpeel.
  • For One week before and after your treatment please stop using the following treatments and products:
    • Electrolysis, waxing, depilatories, masks, other Glycolic or Lactic Treatments or Dermabrasion
    • Tretinoin (Vitamin A Acid creams) and Glycolic Acids
    • Loofa or other types of sponges
  • Be sure to inform your doctor of:
    • Allergies
    • History of sensitive skin, eczema, lupus or other autoimmune disease
    • Current medications
    • History of sun sensitivity
  • If you are planning to have Injections for wrinkles, or laser hair removal, it is recommended to have those 24 hours apart from a Microdermabrasion

What is the greatest advantage of Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion?

  • Probably the single biggest advantage that microdermabrasion has over alternative skin treatments is that a microdermabrasion patient can return to normal daily activities after receiving the treatment
  • Many other skin treatments used for the same skin conditions involve post-treatment swelling and require days off work
  • This makes microdermabrasion an ideal treatment for people wanting improved skin without disrupting their daily life over it

What happens during a Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion treatment?

  • At your first visit a Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion technician will provide a free consultation
  • During the consultation she will discuss the benefits of Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion, explain the procedure and benefits to you and answer any questions that you may have
  • Furthermore she will explain how the procedure works and how many treatments you will need, and provide you with a price quote
  • She will also ask you a series of questions to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to determine your skin type and sensitivity
  • After your FREE consultation the technician will call in Dr. Vignjevic
    • He will assess your skin type and whether Silkpeel™ DermalInfusion would be suitable for you
    • In addition, he will answer any further questions that you may have
    • You cannot be treated by the technician unless you are assessed by Dr. Vignjevic first
  • If you decide to go ahead with a treatment, photographs will be taken of the treatment area
    • These photographs are strictly for your chart and will not be released or used without your permission
    • Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us
  • The technician will cleanse your face making sure that all make-up is properly removed prior to your treatment
    • It is not necessary to remove mascara, lip stick or lip liner
  • The technician will place a surgical cap over your hair and ears
  • You will lie down on your back on a treatment bed
  • The technician will place a fresh, sterilized tip onto the handpiece of the microdermabrasion machine
  • The machine is then turned on and its setting will be adjusted for your skin type
  • The technician moves the small sterilized hand piece over your skin in short sweeping motions
  • This is done in up to 4 directions on each part of the face
  • Extra treatment may be done to stubborn areas
  • You may feel a gentle suction on your skin and a slight gritty feeling as the rough tip removes a thin layer of dead skin cells
  • There is no bleeding, pain, needles or cutting with this procedure
  • After the microdermabrasion is completed, the technician uses a soft, damp cloth to remove any residual skin cells
  • Finally, sunscreen is applied, and the treatment is complete
  • You will be provided with a booklet of after-care instructions and the technician will recommend specific products to take care of your skin after the treatment

Other Important Points for the first 3 days:

  • You may apply makeup 3 to 4 hours after your treatment
  • Avoid abrasive sponges for 1 week after your treatment
  • Avoid sun exposure
  • DO NOT pick, peel, scrape, scratch or wax your skin
  • If your skin is dry use moisturizer as many times a day as you like
  • If you develop a cold sore, let Dr. Vignjevic know this immediately as it could spread into the area of the treatment
  • It is very important NOT to EXERCISE for 24 hours after a treatment
