It all started about 8 years ago when Envy Medical founder, Ken Karasiuk conceived of an entirely new way to approach medical skincare. That idea led to SilkPeel Dermalinfusion, using the highest quality diamond-assisted microdermabrasion, within a patented closed vacuum loop that infuses topical solutions (ProInfusions) below the surface of the skin by using pneumatic pressure. The first SilkPeel Dermalinfusion was performed in a Physician’s office in 2004. Today Dermalinfusion represents a gold-standard of skin care in the finest medical offices and medical spas across the United States and around the world. The list of qualified SilkPeel offices is growing by the day, and the entire Envy team is there every step of the way, developing new Proinfusion solutions and techniques for treating an increases number of skin conditions.
In fact, Envy entered a new era in March of 2010, by bringing a new peptide skin therapy to the world, known as Lumixyl. The breakthrough technology behind Lumixyl is a new peptide (a short
chain of amino acids) known as Decapeptide-12, which was discovered by Dr. Basil Hantash MD, Ph.D., and a team of Stanford dermatologists. Lumixyl represents effective skin brightening without the irritation associated with other physician therapies such as hydroquinone or Kojic Acid. The Lumixyl peptide is shown to be effective in clinical studies published in the highly respected medical journals, including the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (August 2009 issue), and the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (August 2009 issue).
You deserve the best skin possible.
Lumixyl now represents a comprehensive skin care system you can get from your doctor or skincare professional and take home for
daily care. Known as the Lumixyl Topical Brightening System, it is now a featured standard of skin care in aesthetic medical offices (dermatologists and plastic surgeons) throughout North America, the UK, Japan, China and a growing number of countries around the world.
SilkPeel continues to be the only true dermalinfusion device – and the only in office procedure that can deliver the Lumixyl Brightening Solution. There are pretenders, that are designed as Dermalinfusion counterfeits. However they really just drip their solutions onto the surface of the skin – they don’t infuse it into the skin with pneumatic pressure, and they don’t have Lumixyl. So don’t be fooled. Whether you are treating hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne, photo-damage or fine-line wrinkles, make sure you ask for a SilkPeel.

Q: Where do I find Lumixyl?
A: Because it is a powerful skin health system to address skin tone, texture and tightness, it is exclusive to skin oriented physicians (such as Dermatologists and Cosmetic Surgeons). To find a skincare professional near you, click on “Skincare Concerns” from the main envymedical.com home page, and select “Find A Doctor”.
Q: What is of advantage to Lumixyl?
A: The Lumixyl Topical brightening system is the first real alternative to hydroquinone for addressing hyperpigmentation. The system includes four products that also provide deep anti-oxidant cleansing, stimulate faster cellular turnover, exfoliate dry damaged skin away, and provide excellent sun protection – all with some of the most elegant, paraben free, fragrance free formulations available today. Formulated to feel better than the most expensive department store products, but with results you can only get from your doctor – Lumixyl one of the fastest growing skincare regimens in the world today.

Q: Is Lumixyl irritating?
A: The key advantage for the Lumixyl peptide over hydroquinone, is that it is absolutely non-toxic and non-irritating! The system does include a product, “GylcoPeel 20 Rapid Exfoliating Lotion” that contains glycolic acid. This product is buffered to be gentle on skin, but it is powerful – so sensitive skin types should start by limiting use of GlycoPeel to once every-other day, in the morning, and increases frequency over time depending on your skin condition goals, and under your skin-care professional’s guidance.
Q: Are there clinical studies to support Lumixyl results?
A: Yes! Lumixyl was developed through clinical development and studies conducted by Stanford University dermatologists and researchers. Additional studies showing the efficacy of the Lumixyl peptide in controlled in-vitro and live patient studies have been published in respected journals including the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (Aug ’09 issue), and the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (Aug ’09) issue. Since then, thousands of patients have experienced the results for themselves in the United States, Canada and many countries throughout the world.
Q. Does Lumixyl work on freckles?
A. Freckles are a form of hyperpigmentation, so – yes, Lumixyl will help a great deal in promoting a even skin tone and fading the freckles. While perhaps more pronounced in their appearance, freckles are generally closer to the surface of the skin making them easier to address. However, daily use of a sunscreen (no matter what your planned activities for the day) is vital to keeping your freckles to a minimum, as people who are prone to freckle, are extra-sensitive to the UV rays in everyday situations. Use Lumixyl Moisturelock SPF 30 Sunscreen every morning and as needed through the day to help keep your skin from getting new freckles.

Q: Where can I get a SilkPeel?
A: SilkPeel is also available in your skincare physician’s office or Medical Spa. To find a skincare professional near you, click on “Skincare Concerns” from the main envymedical.com home page, and select “Find A Doctor”.
Q: What skin conditions can a SilkPeel help?
A: Actually, many conditions may be helped by the right SilkPeel treatment under professional guidance. ProInfusion solutions are delivered through the SilkPeel treatment, specifically designed to treat acne, hyperpigmentation, acne scaring (and other surface scaring), fine line wrinkles, dry dull skin, and others. See a SilkPeel professional near you for a consultation on what SilkPeel can do for your skin.
Q: Is SilkPeel Dermalinfusion a type of Microdermabrasion?
A: Microdermabrasion is a popular procedure performed all over the world. However, Microdermabrasion benefits stop where SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is just getting started. A SilkPeel procedure uses the highest grade diamond tip for controlled exfoliation. At the same time, the skin is pulled up to the tip using a pneumatic pressure vacuum loop, infusing cosmeceutical solutions into the epidermis of the skin, and clearing out sebum, dead skin, and pollutants from the pores and skin surface. The result is improved skin function, tone and texture, and healthier silky smooth skin you are going to love.
Microdermabrasion by contrast uses methods of “sandblasting” or scraping your skin to exfoliate damaged skin away. Instead of sandblasting, start SilkPeeling – to address more of your skin’s health needs.
