Microdermabrasion vs. SilkPeel

SilkPeel dermalinfusion microdermabrasion treatments are an ideal choice for people who are interested in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles in the face

People at every age, from teenagers to seniors, desire skin that appears healthy and vibrant. Looking our best adds to self-esteem and the overall feeling of well-being. Facial treatments that were once available only for the rich and famous are accessible everywhere . . . beauty parlours, aesthetician salons, dermatologist centres, and, of course, plastic surgery clinics. Facials that are available at a typical beauty salon consist of masks and peels that provide a deep cleansing for the pores and then an application of moisturizer. Facial treatments that achieve more noticeable, long-lasting results will cost you more and require more training on the part of the professional.

Stimulate healthy skin and produce a brighter complexion

SilkPeel

Dr. Cory Torgerson offers a variety of treatments at his facial cosmetic clinic to rejuvenate the skin, brighten the complexion, and minimize facial flaws such as redness or dull skin. A glowing complexion is usually accomplished by exfoliating the top layer of skin that has been exposed to the sun and pollution, revealing a fresh, new layer of skin underneath. This process can be accomplished in 2 ways: powerful laser treatments that require time for the skin to heal and less powerful methods that do not require downtime. SilkPeel facials and microdermabrasion are 2 methods that remove the epidermis layer in a non-invasive manner. Both of these facial treatments can be accomplished in a short amount of time and require no sedation. A topical numbing agent may be applied prior to microdermabrasion, but is not required for a SilkPeel. Although the skin may feel slightly tight and have a pinkish colour after treatment, neither of these facial treatments require healing time afterward. Both procedures stimulate healthy skin and produce a brighter complexion, but are accomplished by using 2 very different methods.

Microdermabrasion uses tiny, non-allergenic crystals to remove the outer layer of dead skin

Microdermabrasion

Because the skin is blasted with these microscopic particles, it is a more abrasive method than the SilkPeel. Afterwards, a vacuum is used to suction up the particles and old skin. SilkPeels also use a vacuum that exfoliates the outer layer of skin and opens the pores at the same time. While the pores are open, a powerful serum penetrates deep into the dermis. Both methods reveal a fresh, new layer of skin, which is why complexions are brighter, texture is smoother, and tone is improved. The SilkPeel Facial is an advanced form of microdermabrasion and the next-generation of facials because of its ability to infuse the skin with nutrients. It is a better method overall to use to deal with facial imperfections such as hyperpigmentation or age spots and for hydrating very dry, dull skin. At this time, Dr. Torgerson offers Silk Peel facials at his downtown Toronto clinic. Because of this new “dermalinfusion” method, patients are delighted with the refreshed glow on their skin with a process that takes less than a half-hour. SilkPeel Facials are administered by highly trained registered nurses under Dr. Torgerson’s direction. If you are concerned about a dull, lifeless complexion that requires some rejuvenation, a Silk Peel facial is an economical, safe, and effective treatment that produces immediate results.
