Perhaps the most difficult issue to deal with in having an existing or past acne condition or even an occasional blemish is the pitting, discoloration and the leftover scars that can seem like they take forever to fade away.
How does an acne scar occur?
Simply put, scars are the result of injury to the tissue. In the case of acne, a build up of bacteria and sebum in the sebaceous follicle causes the injury. The body responds by rushing white blood cells and inflammatory molecules to the damaged cells, which can remain at the acne breakout site for weeks in order to heal the area and prevent infection. After the infection heals, the damaged tissue sometimes does not return to its former state. In severe cases of nodular acne where a larger infection occurs in the deeper layers of skin, there can be tissue loss and permanent scarring. Squeezing and picking at whiteheads, blackheads and pimples can cause deeper infection and injury to the skin as well as damage healthy, surrounding skin causing scarring.
What are the treatments available for acne scars?
This depends on the type of acne scars you are having:
Ice pick scarring
This common type of scaring is usually deep, very narrow and extends into the dermis. The skin surface looks as though it has been pierced by an ice pick- hence the name. Some ice pick scars are large in size and often look similar to an open pore.
Treatments: The appearance of ice pick scars can be improved with fractional ablative lasers such as Er:YAG and CO2 laser. Laser resurfacing is promising because the penetration depth into the skin is more easily controlled with a laser than with other methods. The procedure involves passing the laser over the treatment area 1-3 times and can take just a few minutes for small areas or an hour or more for large areas. Local anesthesia is used. Results can be enhanced by undergoing punch excision (surgical removal of scar followed by suture) prior to the laser treatments.
Boxcar scars are usually rounded or oval shaped depressions in the skin with steep vertical sides. This type of scarring is also very common in acne scarring sufferers. Much wider than the ice pick, they resemble the scars left by chicken pox and are usually found on the cheek area.
Treatments: Same as ice pick scars, better results can be achieved by doing surgical revision like punch elevation prior to the laser treatments. Dermal fillers injections with hyaluronic acids can temporarily improved the appearance of scars but results are not long lasting.
Rolling or “wave-like” undulations across otherwise normal-looking skin is caused by damage under the skin’s surface. These scars tend to be wide and shallow in appearance.
Treatments: Laser resurfacing with Er:YAG can potentially yield a good result for this type of scars. However, those deeper and larger scars might need subcision procedure to enhance the resurfacing effect of the laser. The scar is cut away and unbound from the tissue below, releasing the fibrotic tissue underneath. Collagen and other connective tissues form under the scar, thus leveling it with the surface. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an alternative treatment option for acne scar or it can be combined with lasers for a even better result.
Hypertrophic scarring / Keloid scars
Hypertrophic scars are raised from the skins surface and firm in texture. These types of scars are commonly found on the back or chest area of the body but can also appear on the face and neck. Hypertrophic scars usually reduce in size over time. Keloid scarring is a form of hypertrophic scarring that extends beyond the boundaries of the scars.
Treatments: Intralesional steroid injections help interrupt the inflammatory response and the scar is reduced. This can be coupled with silicon gel application to have a better treatment outcome.
Hyperpigmentation refers to the brown dark marks that are left behind after a pimple heals. These marks are not scars, but are often confused with scars because they can last for months or even years before they fade.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, hair loss affects over 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States alone. Hair loss can be caused by many factors including medications, chronic illness, diet, or stress. Some women experience hair loss after pregnancy. But hair loss is predominantly the result of hereditary causes, such as male pattern baldness.
Fortunately, due to recent medical advances, hair loss can be effectively treated. At My Bliss Clinic, there are a few treatment options available for hair loss:
Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Recent scientific research and technology provides the medical community with new understandings of wound and tissue healing. As a result of these scientific studies, we know PRP is an all-natural medical procedure performed in physicians offices for hair loss or conditions causing hair thinning.
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Published medical literature from Europe and the United States confirms the safety and use of PRP therapy.
PRP therapy has established itself to be effective as a medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics. It has been used extensively in these specialties for the last two decades with generally positive outcomes and success. In the field of hair restoration, existing evidence demonstrates PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
The benefits of PRP Injections for Hair Loss can include:
Prevent & slow down the rate of hair loss, thinning, hair shedding & hair fall.
Regrow thinning hair thicker, fuller and healthier without relying on daily drugs or daily chemicals.
Boost the health & condition of the scalp naturally without harsh chemicals or drugs.
Prepare the scalp and skin for the stress of surgery
Accelerate the recovery of the scalp and skin after surgery or a hair transplant.
Promote collagen levels
Improve the elasticity of your skin and scalp.
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive technique based on superficial microinjections, just below the epidermis, into the targeted mesoderm (middle layer of the skin). It is a treatment that stimulates the mesoderm, which relieves a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. The solution injected contains a wide range of minerals, vitamins, amino acids and co-enzymes that can be tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
Meostherapy for hair loss is used with great success in Europe and the United States. The treatment is very comfortable and safe when done professionally. There is no dressing or local anaesthesia required. After the treatment you can just go back to your normal activities.
Mesotherapy brings just the right materials to the exact place where is is needed, i.e. around the hair follicle so that
The hair follicle can grow and survice
The excess of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is neutralised
The blood circulation is improved
iGrow Hair Rejuvenation System
iGrow, developed by Apira Science Inc, is one of the world's most innovative, convenient and effective hands-free, in-home hair growth system. Clinically proven, safe and effective, the iGrow is a revolutionary in-home hair growth system that provides full scalp coverage. It is fully portable, simple to use, and requires no manual movement. iGrow incorporates Apira Science's proprietary Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and LED technologies.
What is LLLT?
Lasers are widely used in medicine and also throughout a variety of industries, in a multitude of varying capacities. The laser energy used to stimulate hair growth is visible in the red light spectrum. The laser light used in promoting hair growth is defined as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT is sometimes included under a broader definition of ‘Phototherapy’ called Low-Level Light Therapy, where the light-emitting device may be a laser and/or light-emitting diode (LED).
LLLT revitalization is not superficial; it takes place within the cells of hair follicles. Cells absorb the lowe level light and become more active, this is known as photobiostimulation. It is like giving your cells vitamins for a healthy metabolism. Cells then begin to repair and revitalize themselves.
Is iGrow safe to be used at home?
The iGrow® has been specially designed with safety features for at-home, office and travel use, including a safety mechanism controlling both laser and LED devices. In addition, the iGrow® is designed so that it can only be turned on when it is firmly placed on your head.
Is iGrow regulated for safety?
Yes. iGrow® uses Class 3R lasers which are recognized as safe by all worldwide governing medical bodies. It meets the safety guidelines established by the US and foreign governments for safety. iGrow® is manufactured according to ISO 13485, the most stringent standard for medical device products. It is approved by the US FDA and is safe to be used by both men and women.
What is the treatment regime of iGrow and when can user expect to see results?
The recommended treatment period is 3 to 6 months, 2 to 3 times weekly. Usage for maintenance can be reduced to once a week. Users can see results as fast as 1 to 2 months.
Are there any negative side effects associated with using iGrow?
No. Testing and patient testimonials have shown no known side effects when using iGrow. LLLT has 40 years of history indicating excellent safety profile. However, patients may experience lightheadedness upon initial few times of usage due to increased circulation, which is perfectly normal.

Scar formation can be a normal part of the healing process. In some cases scar tissue formation can be excessive. The two types of excessive scar tissue formation are known as keloid and hypertrophic scarring.
Keloids are red to purple wound scars which develop when the skin cannot switch off the healing process and collagen is continuously produced causing an over growth of collagen leaving a raised scar. Keloids are elevated fibrous scars that extend beyond the borders of the original wound, do not regress, and usually recur after excision. The term is coined from the Greek word cheloides, meaning “crab's claw.”
It is not known why keloids appear in some people and not others. While most people never form keloids, others develop them after minor injuries, even insect bites or pimples. Keloids may form on any part of the body, although the upper chest and shoulders are especially prone to them. Keloid scars are usually just a cosmetic problem but occasionally may be uncomfortable or itchy, and may be much larger than the original wound. They can arise soon after the injury, or develop months' later. Keloids are usually firm, raised, shiny, and smooth. They are often pink or red, or much darker or lighter in colour than the surrounding skin.
Traditionally, surgical removal of the scars was recommended. However, 45% to 100% of people will have a recurrence of the scar if surgery is not combined with other treatments (e.g., radiation, pressure dressings). Furthermore, the new scar can actually be larger and more prominent than the original scar.
A mainstay for both treatment and prevention is the injection of steroids such as triamcinolone directly into the scar. Steroids help prevent inflammation and promote the breakdown of collagen. This helps to make scars less raised, and to decrease pain and tenderness associated with the scar.
Laser therapy is now used to treat many types of skin problems, including keloids. It is often combined with steroid injections to give the best cosmetic result. Laser with a wavelength of 585nm helps to reduce the redness of the keloids.
Silicon gel dressings are a popular alternative to steroid injections, or it can be used after steroid injections to yield a better result.
Hypertrophic scars are similar, but are confined to the wound borders and usually regress over time. Hypertrophic scars are more common than keloids, and many people who think that they have keloids actually only have a tendency towards hypertrophic scarring. Your doctor can help make this distinction. The treatments for keloids and hypertrophic scars are similar, but hypertrophic scars usually have a better response to treatments.
Pores are essential to your skin's health by providing oil to keep skin soft and hydrated. However, you don't necessarily want to be reminded of their existence every time you look in the mirror. Pores are more prominent when they are dilated, infected, or clogged with oil, making them appear larger than they really are. While it isn't possible to permanently "shrink" large pores, there are a number of ways to make them less noticeable.
There are two main factors that contribute to large pores: genetics and age. People who have skin that is naturally thick and oily tend to have larger pores. As people get older, too, sun damage and decreased skin elasticity can cause pores to dilate. The skin thickens, causing tiny cells to collect around the edge of the pores and make them look larger. Comedones such as whiteheads and blackheads are also a big contributor to large pores. When the pore becomes clogged by dirt and bacteria, oil within the pore begins to accumulate, causing the pore's diameter to expand.
How can one improve enlarged pores? The good news is that the appearance of large pores can be greatly reduced in a number of ways.
Cleansing the pores of debris, excess oil, and bacteria will significantly reduce their prominence. This can be achieved by using a face wash with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Neostrata Skin Active Exfoliating Face Wash) , Beta Hydroxy Acids (Aknicare Cleanser) or Poly Hydroxy Acids (Neostrata Restorative Cleansing Gel). Results can be enhanced by applying Neostrata Oil Control Gel daily and Neostrata Citriate Treatment System weekly.
Stop using skin-care products that clog pores or cause your oil glands to produce more oil. You must avoid products that are too emollient (meaning thick or greasy creams) or that have a creamy texture, as many moisturizers do. If you have oily skin, creamy, emollient skin-care products will lead to clogged pores.
Avoid products with drying, irritating ingredients. Irritating products stimulate more oil production directly in the pore.
Use only gentle, water-soluble cleansers and avoid bar soaps. Drying cleansers hurt the skin's healing process, making red marks from blemishes last longer. If a cleanser causes irritation, it can stimulate more oil production. Regarding bar soaps: The ingredients that keep bar soap in its bar form can clog pores.
Improve cell production to help the pore function more normally. Effective products for all skin types are prescription retinoids, such as Retin-A and Differin. These can be used by themselves or with a BHA product. Research has definitely established that Retin-A and Differin have positive effects on the way pores function, and you should consider these products for very stubborn cases or when blackheads are accompanied by breakouts. Retinoids have anti-aging benefits, too, so they're great for those struggling with blackheads, large pores, and wrinkles.
Use products loaded with antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients to help heal skin and reduce wrinkles. Giving skin the important ingredients it needs to look and be healthy is critical, but the trick for those with blackheads and large pores is to use only products with a gel, liquid, or very thin serum texture. A well-formulated toner may be all you need twice a day to take care of this need.
Exfoliation is also a key to minimizing the appearance of large pores. This can be accomplished by doing in-clinic treatments such as SilkPeel DermalInfusion and Professional Chemical Peels. Any treatment or products that increase the collagen content of the dermis will improve the size of the pores.
Laser Toning - by using Fotona Q-switched Nd YAG, this gentle, no-downtime treatment is able to reduce unsightly skin blemishes while stimulating the deeper layers of the skin to regenerate more collagen and toning up the elasticity of the skin. That means - your skin will be transformed to have more even skin tone, refined pores and reduced fine lines after a few session of this laser therapy.
Dynamis Resurfacing Laser with Erbium YAG fractional ablative laser. This skin resurfacing laser treatment is for those looking for solutions with a quicker results. Precisely-controlled laser energy penetrates the top layers of your skin to vaporize the scarred, thickened dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new collagen in the deeper layers of your skin. Expect a downtime of 4 to 6 days after this no-nonsense treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) -- a small volume of plasma containing large number of platelets, which are rich with cell-repairing growth factors. This all natural treatment purely utilises your own blood products. Not only it helps minimise your pores, you can expect a much rejuvenated skin with lesser blemishes and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
A minuscule amount of diluted BOTOX can be injected superficially and evenly across the face. Not only it will smoothen surface fine lines, but also reduce pore size and oiliness of your skin. Some patients even experienced some minor lifting and firming effects after the treatment!
LED Photomodulation Therapy is a painless skin care procedure using mainly red or blue light. There are no side effects and no downtime. Red light rejuvenates skin by stimulating fibroblasts to produce collagen and decreasing the enzymes that breakdown collagen. By building collagen, wrinkles are reduced and skin retains a more youthful, radiant appearance. It improves sun damaged skin, blotchy complexions and fine lines. Blue light safely destroys bacteria on the skin and in the pores to reduce acne. It is suitable for all skin types.
Other light-based skin therapies, including intense pulsed light and laser treatments, rely on heat and thermal injury to create changes in skin appearance. LED Photomodulation does not use heat and there is no trauma to the tissues which means there is no downtime.
LED Photomodulation is FDA-approved for wrinkle reduction. It offers a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. In a process similar to photosynthesis in plants, the LED light interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce more collagen and elastin. This light is emitted in a unique, pulsing sequence that is administered in just minutes.
What does the treatment involve?
You simply need to lie on the bed while the light is applied for 20 minutes. You can listen to music or simply relax. Photorejuvenation treatments are recommended to be performed weekly for 4 to 6 weeks. Acne treatment involves 2 sessions per week for 6 to 8 weeks.
Can it be used with other treatments?
LED Photomodulation can be done on its own or in combination with other treatments. Both red and blue light can be combined with any other treatments, including a facial, chemical peel, SilkPeel DermalInfusion, laser and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

How will I look after the LED treatment?
Mild pinkness may last for a few minutes after the treatment but there is no downtime.
What is the recommended maintenance regimen?
A series of treatments is required to get your skin in shape and looking great. The number of visits may vary depending on the problem being treated. Since the skin will continue to age, maintenance treatments are necessary to prolong and enhance healthier skin.
After a series of treatments, a maintenance treatment every month or so will enhance and prolong the effects. LED treatment works best in conjunction with a good skincare regimen, including sun protection.
Do you rely on thick foundation or concealer to hide your blemishes or brown marks on your skin?
Many of us have brown spots or marks on our skin which can sometimes cause concerns about our appearance.
Skin aging caused by long-term sun exposure, facial blemishes due to excessive pigmentation and, in general, imperfections caused by melanin, are more and more common, especially among Asians.
Types of pigmentation
Brown spots, liver spots, age spots, sun spots, freckles, lentigos, or senile/solar lentigines are associated with premature aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.These marks range in colour from light brown to red or black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms, decollete and forehead, and the head if bald. Most are harmless, but all are aging and may be unattractive.
Café au lait, Nevus of Ota and other pigmented birthmarks are localised areas of increased pigmentation in the skin, which are present at birth.
Melasma, also called ‘chloasma’, is a common skin condition of adults in which light to dark brown or greyish pigmentation develops, mainly on the face. The name comes from melas, the Greek word for black. Although it can affect both genders and any race, it is more common in women and people with darker skin-types who live in sunny climates. Melasma usually becomes more noticeable in the summer and improves during the winter months. It is not an infection, it is not contagious and it is not due to an allergy.
How do we treat pigmentations?
Professional chemical peels: These are solutions applied to the face which cause gentle exfoliation of the superficial layers of the skin. This stimulates skin regeneration and helps lighten pigmentation and improves texture. Peels used to treat pigmentation include glycolic acid, lactic acid and trichloroacetic acid.
SilkPeel Dermalinfusion : It is a procedure in which the outermost layer of dead skin cells is mechanically exfoliated, carrying with it some of the pigment-containing cells. This is coupled with dermalinfusion of Brightening Solution which features the revolutionary Lumixyl peptide, effectively lighten up uneven pigmentation and dark spots. About 8-10 sessions may be needed bimonthly, and thereafter maintenance sessions.
Pigment Laser - Fotona QX MAX’s Q-switched Nd:YAG laser works by destroying the pigment in the skin without the need for excision. The laser produces short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be selectively absorbed by melanin in the lesion. These melanin are subsequently broken into smaller particles, which are then removed by the body’s own immune system. There is minimal discomfort with no downtime. Multiple sessions are needed and treatment intervals may vary from 1-4 weeks.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a new form of regenerative medicine that utilized your own blood, where the platelet rich plasma component is extracted, concentrated and reintroduced to rejuvenate the skin. The concentrated platelets in PRP contain tremendous amounts of bioactive proteins and growth factors, which promote tissue repair, capillary formation and collagen production. PRP is effective for treating pigmentations, as well as fine lines, enlarged pores, acne scars and saggy skin on face and neck.
Some pigmentations especially melasma can be worsen by sun exposure. Broad-spectrum fragrance-free sunscreens, with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or greater and a high ultraviolet A (UVA) star-rating, should be applied daily throughout the year.
Skin peels are not something new to mankind, they have existed for over 3000 years. Ancient Egyptian women, with Cleopatra being the most notable one, used to bathe in sour milk and rub their faces with fermented grape skins to smoothen the skin and enhance their beauty. These were in fact the earliest forms of what is known as lactic and glycolic peel today respectively.
Chemical peels, along with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers, complete the perfect triumvirate needed for the ideal facial rejuvenation. It is not enough to just remove the wrinkles, and improve the shape and contour of the face, we also have to improve the condition of the skin and to rejuvenate it back to an earlier time.
What can chemical peels do for you?
Some of the ideal areas to treat are: the face, décolletage area as well as the backs of the hands.
These unique non-invasive peels can give dramatic results for:
Dull lifeless skin
Ageing, sun damaged skin
Fine lines and wrinkles
How does it work?
The skin is the largest organ in the body. It takes as much as 28 days to fully regenerate, with the tough outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, acting as an impenetrable barrier protecting the body from injury, infection, pollution and the ever more harmful sun rays. It also however acts as an effective barrier which can not be penetrated by any of the expensive over the counter creams.
Over the years, many past events like severe sunburn or acne scarring will remain on the outer layer of the skin. As the skin takes so long to regenerate, the thicker skin with blemishes are never removed completely, and the fresh new skin underneath has never given a chance to come to the surface. These result in lackluster and uneven skin tone.
With the process of peeling we are speeding up the regeneration of the skin, and by wiping out some of these blemishes, we are allowing the healthy new skin to come to the surface. In addition, the process of chemical peeling induces new collagen to rush up to the surface of the skin. A good analogy is that of pruning a withering rose, achieving a subsequent new growth and fresh beauty.
How long does a chemical peel procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes on average and involves gently applying the special peel solutions to the treatment areas.
Does it hurt?
With the superficial peels, the only discomfort is that of a stinging which can be reduced with the use of numbing cream prior to the procedure. A cooling fan can be applied to the face during the treatment for the ultimate comfort.
Is it safe?
All of the peels we use are considered as superficial peels, which are very safe and the clinician is always in control. Post treatment instruction will be explained and should be followed to minimize complications such as hyperpigmentation. Sun block should be used regularly throughout the course of treatments.
Age, stress, hormonal imbalance as well as sun exposure, tobacco and a careless lifestyle are all factors involved in skin aging. At any age, skin aging is accentuated by the loss of luminosity on your face.
Your complexion dulls, lines develop, the texture of your skin is uneven, wrinkles and lines appear. All these parameters create dark areas on your face and your skin gradually loses its ability to reflect light.
As far as oxidative stress is concerned, the balance between detoxifying molecules (antioxidants) and toxic elements (oxidants) can be disturbed by many external factors. The excess of oxidants attacks the skin decreasing its elasticity and tonicity.
Thanks to Teosyal PureSense Redensity [I], it is now possible to restore this balance by adequately nourishing the skin from within.
What is Puresense Luminosity?
This is a new treatment concept between dermal filler injections and mesotherapy. By injecting Teosyal Puresense Redensity [I] into the dermal (deeper) layer of your skin, it helps to redensify your skin deep down and restores its ability to reflect light. This innovation provides uniform and totally natural result.
Teosyal PureSense Redensity [I] is a unique hyaluronic acid-based skin enhancer which prevents premature skin aging, restores skin density and maintains skin glow. It is an exclusive formula designed from a rigorous selection of non-allergenic ingredients:
1. Hyaluronic acid - for dermal deep rehydration and redensification.
2. Dermo-Restructuring Complex - combines natural components all synergically involved in redensifying the dermis and
providing antioxidant protection: 3 potent antioxidants, 2 minerals, 1 vitamin and 8 amino acids.
3. Lidocaine - anaesthetic effect for more injection comfort.
Who should go for this treatment?
Puresense Luminosity is recommended for those with:
Dull and tired skin
Loss of tone and radiance
Wrinkles and lines
Which areas can be treated?
This treatment is suitable for the face, in particular the under eyes and lips, and neck area.
How often do I need to have this treatment?
We recommend 3 sessions at 3 week intervals for optimal result, then 2 to 3 sessions per year to maintain the effects of the treatment.
You may choose to alternate or combine with hyaluronic acid dermal filler injections or other cosmetic procedures.
Is the treatment painful? Is it safe?
The treatment is well tolerated after some numbing cream prior to the procedure and the use of very fine needles during the treatment. It is safe for all skin types.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
There will be redness and swelling for half a day, rarely minor bruising which may take about a week to resolve. These can be covered with make-up after the treatment.
Microdermabrasion is probably not be considered by most of us as a recent advancement in the filed of cosmetic science but it is certainly one of the most popular procedures. It essentially buffs away the outer surface of the skin using an abrasive tool in order to reveal the younger, fresher skin that lies underneath.
SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM is a new format of microdermabrasion that provides non-invasive exfoliation and the delivery of skin specific topical solutions under pressure. Unlike traditional technologies that rely on messy crystals or other irritating particles, SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM's diamond tip head evenly abrades the skin, exfoliating damaged skin cells while delivering targeted topical solutions deep into the skin.
What is the procedure of the treatment?
After cleansing and preparing your skin, your therapist will perform the procedure by making several passes down your neck and across your face with the specialized handpiece. Each pass abrades away dead skin, thoroughly and evenly exfoliating while infusing the treatment solution into the skin. In just under an hour, the treatment is over with results that last for weeks. Your skin immediately looks clearer and brighter and definitely feels smoother.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM is for you if you have one of these conditions:
Uneven pigmentation, dark spots
Cystic and pustular types of acne
Dehydrated skin and fine lines
Dull and tired skin
Your doctor will choose one or more of the specialized Pro Infusions, formulated to address a variety of skin conditions. The SilkPeelTM infuses these products deep into the skin where they are most effective. The solution doesn't just sit on top of your skin like a lotion or cream would, instead the patented SilkPeelTM handpiece deeply delivers the vitamins, antioxidants and other therapeutic ingredients that your skin needs most.
Does it hurt? How long is the downtime?
No, the treatment is comfortable and not painful. It can be done without any local anaesthesia. There is no downtime after the treatment, that is why it is a perfect lunch-time facial.
Besides facial skin, what other body parts can be treated with SilkpeelTM ?
The handpiece is gentle enough to treat dull and stained lips. With SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTMBody Wand, it can be used to body parts like hands, feet, neck, décolletage, chest and back, improving the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite, acne and other skin imperfections.
This clinically-proven concept of skin resurfacing can be used by itself or as a combined therapy with lasers and other light treatments.
