Search no more, we are #1 cosmetic clinic in Edmonton that provides all skin and facial rejuvenation services using the amazing Silk Peel Microdermabrasion.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cornerstone of any skin treatment. It is a gentle resurfacing treatment of the skin that can be used for almost any skin condition such as acne, pigmentation, skin rejuvenation. It provides a mechanical exfoliation procedure for superficial skin resurfacing which utilizes a refined abrasive element, such as a diamond-tipped pad. Microdermabrasion does not provide any energy based resurfacing. The handpiece comes in a different size to help to target small and big area of the face and the body.
How deep does microdermabrasion exfoliate?
As the diamond tip peel the out layer of the epidermis, it removes about 10 μm of skin, so we need about 5-6 passes to exfoliate the epidermis. A hydrostatic pump applies vacuum to remove debris and dirt such the dead layer of the skin and all the dirt and unwanted excretions. The client will be left with a nicer and clear skin. The treatment helps with fine lines, sun damage, removing dead skin cells.
What is the difference between Silk Peel and Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion was improved lately into a better and more advanced system called Silk Peel. The main advantage of the Silk Peel is a stronger suction and the ability to infuse the skin with a special serum to target three main issues, salicylic acid for acne, Hyaluronic acid for skin rejuvenation and hydroquinone for pigmentation and Melasma. Silk peel as a stand-alone treatment is a nice quick treatment with no downtime, however, it is not enough to treat advanced cases of skin conditions such as deep wrinkles, resistant acne, and pigmentation. Microdermabrasion treatments reveal younger looking skin and keep acne and other skin conditions under control. Silk Peel is one of few treatments that approved to be used during active acne breakouts.
How is a good candidate for Silk Peel?
We do not use microdermabrasion for conditions associated with erythema and redness such as rosacea. On the other hand, it can be used for all skin color with no risk of hyperpigmentation.
How soon would I see results?
Silk Peel provides an immediate improvement on skin texture for almost every patient. However, we have to be reasonable with our expectations on other conditions such as scars and acne. It is important to point out that one treatment is not enough and we need a bundle of treatments about 6 weeks apart to get results.
How does Silk Peel Microdermabrasion work?
This treatment is a gentle treatment that provides exfoliation of the skin dead layers, extraction of the dirt inside the skin pores and infuses the skin layers with special serums. We choose the serum according to your skin condition, for acne we use salicylic acid, for dry skin we use hyaluronic acid, for pigmentation we use lamyxal and Vitamin C for skin rejuvenation.
The handpiece has a diamond tip that provides the mechanical exfoliation of the dead skin layers of the epidermis. The skin resurfacing is an important step in the treatment to help restore the skin normal resurfacing process.
Why resurfacing is important in Microdermabrasion?
The skin sheds the thousands of dead keratinocytes to make room for the new one coming for the epithelial layers. For various reasons, the skin fails to shed the top layers of the epidermis, and this causes all troubles such as acne and poor texture. Almost all skin and facial rejuvenation processes, including microdermabrasion, aims to induce the resurfacing of the skin to help the skin to make new layers and making new collagen in the dermis layer. Microdermabrasion resurfacing is gentle but efficient, it is perfect for mild skin conditions such as mild hyperpigmentation and mild acne cases. For more advanced cases such as cystic acne, melasma, and acne scars, we recommend other treatments such as Fraxel laser and micro-needling
