After your skin is cleansed, we will choose one or more of the specialized treatment serums, formulated to address a variety of skin conditions. The SilkPeel™ infuses these products deep into the skin where they can begin to work on correcting and improving the look, feel and texture. These solutions do not sit on the top layer of your skin like most lotions or creams would, instead the SilkPeel™ hand piece massages the vitamins, antioxidants and other therapeutic ingredients into your skin , where it needs them the most. This technique helps the topical solutions to be absorbed where they can be most effective in brightening, clarifying, and hydrating your skin.
