Surface Smoothing of Rough Skin
Exposure to the sun, use of alcohol, smoking, and nutrition all accelerate the signs of aging. Also, as we age, skin cell turnover slows so the smooth soft skin we used to have lies underneath a layer of dead skin cells which do not slough off as quickly as they used to.
The cell accumulation also prevents treatment products from being as effective as they are intended by blocking the absorption.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a skin restoration process, sometimes referred to as "the lunch time peel" because the procedure takes only minutes to perform and most people can return to work immediately!
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion uses highly controlled vacuum and pressure to move microscopically abrasive crystals over the surface of the skin. This action causes little or no discomfort while it gently removes the outer layer of the skin. By repeating this process over the course of several weeks or months, the younger, softer skin moves to the surface, revealing significant textural and color changes.
Ask Dr. Pilest to determine if you are a candidate for Microdermabrasion. Since every individual is unique and has special needs, a personal consultation will be necessary. Together, you and Dr. Pilest will determine the number and regularity of treatments best for you. This procedure can be done on any type of skin, and on any area of the body.
There are a wide range of procedures that improve the skin. SilkPeel Dermal Infusion is a dual effect treatment which combines microdermabrasion with active topical solutions. These solutions for acne, dehydration and pigmentation are "pushed" into the skin immediately after the dead surface skin is removed with a diamond tip.
SmoothPeel can be considered as almost a "laser microdermabrasion". Particularly effective on the crêpe-textured skin around the eyes, SmoothPeel quickly and easily significantly improves skin surface in one treatment at maximum penetration or several treatments if you wish to have least downtime.
Fraxel is the new gold standard procedure for acne scars and melasma. Fractional technology utilizes microdot laser to deeply affect scars and "replane" the skin surface.
