Does the mere thought of a facial treatment make you cringe? You’re not alone. It’s pretty common to feel less–than–thrilled about the idea of a therapist picking around at your acne and imperfections. Also, to put it bluntly, facials hurt, and it can take up to several days for the treatment to heal.
If you’re looking for the benefits of a facial, without the pain and suffering, you should opt for a more gentle approach, like a silk peel. Silk peel facial treatments are a non-invasive and gentle facial treatment procedure that will have your skin looking younger in no time.
Silk peels combine traditional skin exfoliation with machine treatment to provide a gentle topical face solution. This helps promote healthy cells while rejuvenating your skin. Silk peels are known to smooth out skin, making it look younger and more refreshed.
The 4 Types of Silk Peel Treatments
There are several types of silk peel treatments that will help you achieve a healthier, more vibrant glow. Here are our 4 favorites (which also happen to be the most common):
- Mechanical exfoliation
Mechanical exfoliation works by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the treated area. Using different treatment tips, it gently exfoliates while topical solutions are simultaneously infused.
The topical treatments used depend on the patient’s specific needs and can be customized to cure acne, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, and photodamage.
Dermabrasion removes the skin’s superficial layers to reveal a newer skin layer underneath. While the process may cause a little discomfort, anesthesia is typically administered to reduce the pain.
Dermabrasion rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by injuring it in a controlled manner using an abrasive. It’s most suitable for treating aged skin and particular types of scarring.
Microdermabrasion is the most common method for removing superficial skin cells. It works by manually exfoliating the epidermis by removing skin debris, impurities, and dead cells.
Microdermabrasion helps in the stimulation of collagen for a more rapid skin cell turnover. A suction and wand made of diamond or minute crystal particles help in eliminating impurities from your skin.
- Chemical exfoliation
Chemical peels are mild to heavy exfoliation treatments that work by loosening dead cells from the skin’s surface. The peeling usually lasts for 5 to 7 days, depending on the patient’s skin type.
Chemical exfoliation helps in the improvement of skin tone and texture, as well as pore refinement. By revitalizing the skin, it removes fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
