SilkPeel has become a primary standard of facial care in many medical practices and medi-spas across the United States and Canada. Whether for hyperpigmentation, fine-line wrinkles, or improving overall skin texture, laxity and tone, patients all over are benefiting from this powerful but gentle combination of mechanical exfoliation, pore clarification (in fact, SilkPeel for acne is perhaps the fastest growing treatment protocol), and the delivery of skin-health promoting serums.
And yet, as the leading dermatologists increase their personal experience with the procedure, they are expanding the use of the products to take care of other areas of skin concern that have historically been underserved because there have not been good product or procedure choices.
Dr. Maryati Maharon is an aesthetic doctor in Malaysia, and the owner of the Faceworks Aesthetic Clinic. On her practice blog, she describes some of the ways SilkPeel can be used outside of facial treatments.
“Besides the usual facial regime, we were also shown the technique for eye area and lips. Lips was really interesting because prior to this, I never thought we could use the SilkPeel on the lips. This to me is a very exciting new thing, since there are very limited procedures you can use on your lip.”
Having the SilkPeel lip rejuvenation done on her before she would treat any patient – Dr. Maharon was duly impressed.
“The lines of my lips are smoothened, my lips were rehydrated again, and the colour became a lot redder than previously,” writes Dr. Maharon, “It looked really healthy and it didn’t hurt one bit. It is a good way to return the softness of lips, and actually you can puck out the lip more. Combined with a lip conditioner, my lips have remained soft till today and I’m just [curious] to see how long the softness effect lasts.”
Beyond the face, she also notes some other areas of training that her colleagues are providing for SilkPeel.
“It is good for the neck to rehydrate, the décolletage area for people who love to [wear] low [neck-lines], to whiten underarms, to smoothen dry elbows and knees, and you can even use it for the bikini and Brazilian areas post waxing to lighten up darker areas and give the area a smoother feel.”
These are areas of common concern for female patients, covering a wide variety of skin types and age ranges, yet they often don’t even realize that there are options with SilkPeel that are now available. “I think I will be starting this bikini and Brazilian lightening treatments soon once I get [additional training] for those areas,” said Dr. Maharon.
This underscores the fact that SilkPeel has become a core offering not only in high-end medical/aesthetic practices around the United States and Europe, but also throughout Asia, South Africa and South America. This does not surprise noted dermatologists who have been using it to treat their patients.
“SilkPeel has truly revolutionized the way I think of doing minimally-invasive procedures for my patients,” said Dr. Vic Narurkar, MD, FAAD, founder of the Bay Area Laser Institute. Dr. Narurkar is a past president of the American Society Of Cosmetic Dermatology And Aesthetic Surgery.
Patients can get a procedure done in as little as 30 minutes – literally during their lunch break, and since it is a painless procedure that only gives a slight “rosy” glow for a short period of time afterwards, the patient can go right on with normal activities for the day. Their skin will feel exceptionally clean, soft and smooth after the procedure, but the real benefits will come in the following days. The solution applied to the skin through what is known as SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion™ will go to work while the diamond assisted exfoliation wakes the skin’s own regenerative processes. The combined result is skin that not only looks healthier, but acts healthier as well.
Looking at another example closer to home in the heart of Texas, just north of Houston, Dr. Cathy Hart has a family medical practice where she provides SilkPeel procedures as a leading body rejuvenation treatment. A quick look at her website reveals that “[t]o make the skin on your body look healthy and renewed, we use the SilkPeel BodyWand system. The SilkPeel BodyWand refreshes the skin of your neck, chest, back, arms, legs, and hands by gently removing dead skin cells and infusing your skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and other therapeutic ingredients. We can also use the SilkPeel system to treat acne on the body.”
Depending on the skin condition being treated, the physician may recommend four to six treatments, spaced about two weeks apart to get the best overall results. Thereafter, patients tend to return about once every four to six weeks in order to keep their skin at its best.
