WHAT CAUSES AGE SPOTS
Usually caused by overexposure to the sun, age spots are flat and may be gray, black or brown in colour. It occurs due to the skin producing melanin in order to protect itself from the harmful UV rays of the sun, but the production is concentrated in small spots across the skin. They may also be caused by picking at the skin, acne and inflammation, hormonal changes or even some medications such as antibiotics. Age spots are generally harmless but some individuals may not find them aesthetically pleasing.
WHY CHOOSE SILKPEEL
SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is similar to microdermabrasion in that a diamond head is used to buff away the top layers of skin in order to remove the dead skin cells. Using controlled vacuum pressure, it pulls skin up into a chamber within the hand piece where skin is then abraded softly or aggressively depending on the intensity set by your doctor.
This allows the diamond tip to consistently exfoliate dead skin cells, but also simultaneously drive a topical solution into the skin at the dermal junction where new skin cells are being formed. It is a step ahead of traditional microdermabrasion as it also stimulates the production of fresh collagen which is needed for the skin to begin repairing itself.
The topical solution gives your skin very real benefits and you will see noticeable improvements which can transform your skin. You should see results after the first session, and these will gradually improve with each subsequent session. Treatments are generally scheduled 2 weeks apart for the first cycle, and you may opt to continue these treatments at larger intervals after the cycle is complete. Your doctor will advise you o interval and number of sessions for the good results.
No downtime is needed for this swift treatment, which can be completed in about 20 minutes but this may vary depending on individuals. Some discomfort or a tingling sensation may be experienced if you have sensitive skin, but this is temporary and should subside after a few hours. Your doctor will also be on hand to discuss and advise you on post-treatment maintenance.
