Age spots. While harmless, most of us would rather do without them. Appearing as dull brown, gray or black blemishes on the skin, they occur most often due to excessive exposure to the sun.
To protect itself from ultraviolet rays, the skin produces melanin, and when concentrated, this chemical results in spots – most commonly found on the hands, face and shoulders. As their name suggests, they often affect those above the age of 50. However, they are also known to affect people of all ages.
A quick procedure requiring a minimum of 20 minutes, SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is suitable for patients of all ages. Utilising a diamond head and vacuum pressure to remove dead skin cells and the top-most layer of skin, this procedure is complemented by a topical solution which penetrates deeply – helping to stimulate the production of new skin cells and natural collagen.
When undergoing the treatment, you may experience some minor discomfort and a tingling sensation if your skin is sensitive, but rest assured, this is only temporary, and will fade away within a couple of hours.
Results will be apparent quickly – with noticeable improvements as soon as after your first session. For your first cycle, sessions will most likely be spaced 2 weeks apart. You may, however, opt to have them further apart following the initial cycle. Be sure to discuss treatment scheduling with your doctor depending on your desired 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.
