Microdermabrasion Silk Peel
Are you looking for a convenient skin care treatment that can help you achieve healthier, more youthful-looking skin with quick results? Microdermabrasion with SilkPeel™ Dermal Infusion is one of the most advanced procedures available, and it typically does not require long recovery periods or several days for the results to be noticeable. This non-invasive treatment gently removes damaged skin cells from the top dermal layer and allows the healthier skin underneath to be brought forth. Microdermabrasion with SilkPeel™ Dermal Infusion can also increase collagen production to help the skin continue the rejuvenation process.
This procedure is not like traditional microdermabrasion, which can be a bit abrasive on the skin and result in redness and bruising after treatment. Microdermabrasion with SilkPeel™ Dermal Infusion is designed to provide patients with a virtually painless treatment, soothing and deeply moisturizing the skin. Performed here at Afterglow in an atmosphere of relaxing music and the soft glow of candlelight, which can help you attain more beautiful skin in a spa-like environment!

What can I expect during the procedure?
Microdermabrasion with SilkPeel™ Dermal Infusion treatment is custom-designed to improve your specific skincare needs. The SilkPeel™ utilizes a closed-loop vacuum system with diamond-tip technology, exfoliating the skin with an ultrasonic applicator while simultaneously administering a topical dermaceutical. This technique is designed to get rid of the damaged outer layer of skin cells and bring forth the more refreshed skin underneath, in addition to stimulating new cell growth for a healthier appearance.
During the treatment, a member of our experienced skin care team will also use specialized treatment serums to address your specific skin condition. These products will be infused deep into the skin with the SilkPeel™ handpiece, delivering antioxidants, vitamins, and other therapeutic agents to greater depths of the skin where it’s most in need.
The entire treatment typically lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, and many patients achieve results very soon after treatment. Depending on the size and extent of the treatment area, patients may need a series of treatments spaced over a period of several weeks for the best results.
With SilkPeel™’s “wet” exfoliation, you can have skin that is smoother, more hydrated, more even-toned, and youthful!
Does it hurt?
Microdermabrasion with SilkPeel™ Dermal Infusion does not use traditional microdermabrasion’s micro-crystals on the skin. Patients typically experience little to no discomfort during treatment. After the procedure, the topical skin care products that are applied should give your skin a cool, refreshed feeling.
What can I expect during recovery?
There is usually no downtime necessary after this procedure. Most patients resume normal daily routines immediately. Microdermabrasion with SilkPeel™ Dermal Infusion typically does not result in excessive irritation or inflamed skin after treatment.
