What is Microdermabrasion?

Our microdermabrasion, also known as SilkPeel, uses small diamond tools to gently “sand” the outer layer of your skin to produce rejuvenated, radiant skin in under 30 minutes.

Dermalinfusion is a treatment like no other. It’s the only skin-resurfacing treatment for the face and body that gently, but effectively exfoliates damaged skin and treats a variety of skin concerns with serum infusion technology.

What is SilkPeel Dermalinfusion?

At Total Aesthetics, SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion from Envy Medical is an important part of our skin care armamentarium. This patented 3-in-1 technology combines non-invasive exfoliation, extraction, and infusion to volumize the skin by 70%, all without the use of crystals. 

While standard microdermabrasion can be a spa treatment, SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is a medical grade procedure that utilizes a variety of condition-specific, professional strength serums delivered with Dermalinfusion technology. These solutions don’t just sit on top of the skin as a lotion or cream. They are delivered directly into the skin at optimal depths to plump and volumize as well as optimize hydration, tone, and texture.

What are the benefits of SilkPeel Dermalinfusion?

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion exfoliates, volumizes and treats the skin with condition-specific serums. Volume, hydration, tone and texture are improved and healthy cell renewal is stimulated.

What is the microdermabrasion recovery time?

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is painless and there is essentially no downtime, with patients returning immediately to their routine activities.

Are multiple microdermabrasion treatments required?

While you will see visible results soon after your first treatment with SilkPeel Dermalinfusion, more visible improvements will be seen after several treatments, supplemented with a patient-specific, at home, skin care regimen.

What are the results of microdermabrasion?

The results you receive from microdermabrasion treatment will depend upon the technology utilized as well as the condition of your skin. We utilize medical, not spa-grade, technology and we integrate SilkPeel Dermalinfusion as part of your customized skin care rejuvenation and maintenance plan.

What are the side effects of microdermabrasion?

The most common side effects of a microdermabrasion treatment are some redness and tenderness in the treated area as well as some swelling that can last a few hours after your visit. Because SilkPeel does not utilize crystals, side effects specific to crystals do not occur.

Is there any downtime with microdermabrasion?

Because their is little to no downtime involved, you can resume your regular activities immediately following your SilkPeel procedure.

Can I use anything after my microdermabrasion treatment?

Yes, you can use a moisturizer to manage dry skin and keep your skin hydrated - but do not use any topical acne medications for at least one day.

It is best to avoid sun exposure for a few days after your treatment. If you have to go outside, make sure to apply sunscreen. Keep in mind that your skin is more sensitive to the sun for a few weeks following your treatment.

Am I a candidate for Microdermabrasion?

Patients with acne scars, fine lines or sun damage are also good candidates. You should consider microdermabrasion if you want to brighten, and maintain clear skin if you have clogged pores or blackheads, or have acne scars or sun damage.
