DiamondGlow™ & Chemical Peels

DiamondGlow(formerly SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion)

DiamondGlow™ is a skin-freshening technique, similar to microdermabrasion, that helps repair skin after damage from the sun, acne, and the effects of aging. This procedure combines non-invasive exfoliation with  patient-specific solutions that are infused deep in the skin’s layers. These solutions contain no harsh chemicals and are used to lighten, hydrate, clear, and even nourish the skin.  The device exfoliates the skin using medical grade diamond head tips, and provides no wounding to the skin.

As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, this can be combined with other procedures to get the best results for your specific skin needs. Repeated treatments with our certified provider may be needed to reduce or remove fine lines and unwanted pigmentation. Immediately after the procedure, you will notice your skin feeling softer and more replenished. 

Chemical Peels

Are you noticing with each passing birthday that your skin seems a little more lackluster? Dull? Developing fine lines? Do you wonder if there’s something you can do to refresh your skin? Those fine lines, age spots, and even dull skin can be successfully treated. The simplest way to see results is to get rid of the outer layer of skin and expose the fresh new skin underneath.

Chemical peeling is a technique used to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin, typically on the hands, face or neck by exposing new skin. Chemical peel solutions include glycolics, low-concentration TCA, retinoic acid or amino acid combinations. Glycolic and salicylic acid are excellent tools used to treat mild scarring and certain types of acne as well as exfoliate and renew the skin. Trichloracetic acid peels target more pronounced wrinkles and sun damage. Lactic, glycolic, lipoic, kojic, salicylic, and other peels are all a natural means to exfoliate and renew the skin without friction. As a result, the chemical peel can improve moisture retention, soften fine lines, unclog pores and generally promote clearer, healthier and more luminous skin.

Length of Each Procedure: 30 – 45 minutes

In/Out Patient: Outpatient

Recovery Time: For DiamondGlow™ treatments, there is no downtime.  The skin may be slightly pink or red for a few hours after treatment.  For Chemical Peels, downtime may vary, depending on the type of peel.  For light peels, there may be slight slothing or flaking of the skin.  For mid-grade peels, there are extensive peeling, particularly from days 3 through 5.
