What can New Orleans patients expect from SilkPeel treatments?By Dr. Mary Lupo
SilkPeel dermal infusion is a microdermabrasion device that uses a fine diamond fraize to slough away unhealthy skin to expose the fresh, youthful appearance underneath it. At the same time, the device infuses serums into the skin to provide exfoliation and rejuvenation. Patients who benefit most from SilkPeel dermal infusion treatments are those with sun-damaged skin, acne, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and dry skin. SilkPeel is also beneficial for improving overall skin tone and texture, while bringing forth glowing, radiant skin!
Dr. Lupo starts patients on the SilkPeel regimen after scheduling an initial consultation appointment. During this visit, patients can ask any questions they may have about the treatment and learn what they can expect. Dr. Lupo determines how many sessions they may require for the optimum results, and can offer suggestions about home health care in between SilkPeel treatments.
During the SilkPeel treatment, patients will be able to sit back and relax in a spa-like setting. The skin is cleaned before the procedure starts. The SilkPeel treatment device is shaped like a large pen and is held against the skin and moved across slowly. The skin is exfoliated, and a special combination of serums is infused into the skin and vacuumed back into the handheld piece. Most patients are comfortable throughout the treatment, some note minor discomfort from the exfoliation.
Afterwards, the face is moisturizes, and an aftercare regimen is discussed. Patients may experience some slight redness following the treatment, but this goes away after a few hours. Patients are encouraged to minimize sunlight exposure for 48 hours. There is no downtime involved with SilkPeel treatments, allowing patients to go about their day after their visit to the Lupo Center.
