SilkPeel Dermalinfusion for Age Spots
WHAT CAUSES AGE SPOTS
Age spots tend to be flat and either black, grey or brown in colour and is usually a result of overexposure to the sun. The harmful UV rays of the sun often trigger the production of melanin in your skin to protect itself.
However, age spots occur when the melanin production is confined to small spots across the skin. You may also develop them if you pick at your skin, or suffer from acne, inflammation, hormonal changes or some selected medicines like antibiotics. Although age spots are harmless, some people may find it aesthetically unpleasant.
WHY CHOOSE SILKPEEL
Similar to microdermabrasion, SilkPeel Dermalinfusion uses a diamond head to exfoliate the top skin later, eliminating dead skin cells in the process. Utilising controlled vacuum power in the hand piece, the skin will be pulled into a chamber inside. Your skin will then be scrubbed softly or aggressively, depending on what your doctor think is best.
A diamond tip is used, exfoliating the dead skin cells, but also help to drive a topical solution into the area of the skin where new cells are growing. This is a step above traditional microdermabrasion as it promotes the production of collagen, a substance that the skin needs in order to repair itself.
The solution is also very beneficial to your skin, and noticeable improvements will gradually transform your skin effectively. Results will be visible after the first session, and these will improve further with each subsequent treatment. Sessions are usually 2 weeks apart for the first cycle, and more cycles can be scheduled once the first one is complete. Your doctor will offer advice regarding this during the first consultation session, in order to determine the number of treatments for best results,
The treatment only takes 20 minutes usually, but this may vary. You will not need any recovery time for this procedure, but you may experience a slight discomfort or tingling if your skin is sensitive – this should subside after a few hours. You can discuss your post-treatment maintenance with your doctor, who will also be on hand to offer advice regarding any aspects of the treatment.
