In the past, when one desired a rejuvenation of skin, microdermabrasion was a viable solution. While this treatment still works today, dermatologists have discovered how to optimize their procedures through special tools and products. At AboutSkin Dermatology, we utilize two very effective treatments, SilkPeel and Dermasweep, to help our patients achieve their aesthetic goals.

SilkPeel is a safe cosmetic treatment that is painless and takes very little time out of your busy schedule. Using specially-designed equipment, this abrasion treatment exfoliates the skin without harsh particles that may irritate delicate skin. SilkPeel does more than remove dead skin cells; however, this treatment also gives something back through the process of dermal infusion.

Some of the agents that may be used with the SilkPeel include:

  • Skin Hydrating serum
  • Skin Hydrating serum with vitamin C
  • Skin Clarifying serum
  • Pro-infusion serum

Every SilkPeel treatment is designed to suit the patient’s specific needs and skin type, fully customized in terms of vacuum pressure and bristles. This is not a treatment that is typically available at your average day spa, as it has been intended for professional use with trained physicians.

Dermasweep is a similar treatment to the SilkPeel in that it is designed to exfoliate the skin and subsequently deliver a boost of specific agent aimed at addressing a patient’s concerns. The action of the Dermasweep tool also increases blood flow to the skin, which encourages the production of collagen which will firm and tone the outer layer of the skin.

There are several treatment tips that we have to choose from when administering Dermasweep, which facilitates precise results for each individual patient, while also providing for a comfortable, customized procedure. Some of the topical solutions available with the Epi-Infusion want of Dermasweep include:

  • Acne, with salicylic acid
  • Dehydration, with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and chamomile
  • Hyperpigmentation, with hydroquinone, azelaic acid and kojic acid

Each of our practitioners at AboutSkin Dermatology is extensively trained in cosmetic procedures, and can assist you in determining the most suitable treatment plan. Some of the specific benefits that you may experience with SilkPeel or Dermasweep include:

  • Reduction of lines and wrinkles
  • Improvement in sun damaged skin
  • Correction of melasma and hyperpigmentation
  • Improvement in skin texture
  • Brightening of dull skin
  • Improvement in acne

These aesthetic treatments are also ideal for those who are looking forward to a special event such as a wedding or other occasion in which they want to look their best. The exfoliating and infusing treatments promote radiant skin and improve texture so that makeup goes on well and stays put longer. Such treatment is recommended 4-7 days prior to your special event.
