Another common problem that plagues both women and men are these little bumps that form on the upper arms and the upper legs. They can kind of look like some form of acne, but they are not acne at all. What are they? They are a skin condition known as Keratosis Pilaris (KP).
KP is a skin condition in which a protein in the skin called keratin forms into hard plugs within hair follicles. This creates the small bumps that look like goose pumps on some arms, and on others they may be accompanied by red or pinkish dots, looking a little more like an acne scab. Why they are there in the first place is a little mysterious though it tends to run in families. Getting rid of them has not been easy to do, until SilkPeel.
With SilkPeel you doctor now has a tool to plane those bumps down while stimulating proper skin function to help them go away altogether.
Your SilkPeel trained professional will apply a set of SilkPeel Body treatments and solutions that are tailored for you specifically. Often, that will include a set of 4 to six treatments spaced about 7 to 10 days apart. They will typically use the clarifying solution and/or the Lumixyl ProInfusion solution to treat texture, tone and hyperpigmentation that often accompany KP. The benefits will come from this patented set of technologies in a way no other procedure can deliver;
– Diamond-grit exfoliation under pneumatic pressure provide the most even and complete exfoliation of this skin and a controlled and non-invasive manner.
– That same pneumatic pressure will deliver the proinfusion serum into the tissue of the skin where in needs to be to rejuvenate the natural processes of the skin, stimulating healthier skin function.
– Cellular turnover is stimulated bringing more vibrant, even toned skin to the surface faster for a visible improvement within days, if not immediately.
You may experience some redness after the procedure, that will typically fade in less than 30 minutes, but the procedure itself is not painful and you can return to your normal scheduled activities right after the procedure.
