Microdermabrasion vs. SilkPeel

When you meet someone new, one of the first things they notice is your skin. From teens to older people, everyone wants skin that looks healthy and beautiful without effort. It's a great self-confidence boost, raising your self-esteem and helping you to feel great in your skin. That's why we always recommend taking the best care of your skin that you can!

There are two popular non-invasive skin-smoothing techniguqes avialable to make skin look younger and healthier. Microdermabrasion and SilkPeel both aim to accomplish the same skin goals, but in different ways. This quick post will break down the various differences between SilkPeel and Microdermabrasion.

How Both Procedures Begin

As we’re getting older, our skin is continually being damaged and dead cells appear on the surface.

Both Microdermabrasion and SilkPeel start with removing these cells. They’re actually a type of exfoliation, just more powerful and precise.

A new, fresh layer of skin is revealed underneath the skin that has been damaged by pollution and the sun.

Microdermabrasion ends with this, but SilkPeel goes one step further and applies solution to the area that was treated. The solutions vary according to the patient’s needs.

Difference In the Length of Treatments

A typical Microdermabrasion lasts about 30 minutes. A SilkPeel requires much more for the first time. Including explanation of the process and applying the topical solution, a SilkPeel can last up to 60 minutes.

A Slight Cost Difference

The price of both procedures is affordable compared to surgical options. The prices may vary, but for Microdermabrasion you will pay approximately $175, and for SilkPeel around $200. Very similar.

Potential Risks

The biggest concern is about combining the mentioned procedures with treatments which are based on retinoid. Retinoids are treating wrinkles and sun damage.

However, according to the latest study, Microdermabrasion only has a little risk when combining it with retinoids. There were a bit more side effects.

Although it’s harder to do a study about SilkPeel because the procedure is according to individual needs, we assume that for SilkPeel goes the same.

How Effective Are the Treatments?

A SilkPeel is using a custom proprietary material when microscopic exfoliating. On the other hand, the Microdermabrasion uses abrasive materials. The two types of treatments give similar results and they have the same mechanical foundation.

But, as we said, SilkPeel also involves solutions. This being the case, we can say that the winner is SilkPeel because it gives extra benefits through applying tailored solutions. As the pores open, a strong serum deeply gets into the dermis.

Where to Go?

Microdermabrasion is found in spas, medi-spas and salons. It will polish your skin through the “sandblasting.”

SilkPeel is found in medical spas and medical practices. It treats the texture and tone of the skin having active ingredients for acne, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and more.

The skin can be tighter and have a slight pink color after both procedures, but no healing time is required afterwards. Both treatments make skin look healthier and brighter.
