Why We Love the Silk Peel MicroDermabrasion

Praised for its ability to rejuvenate and renew the skin, microdermabrasion has been one of the most long-standing and popular choices in skin resurfacing and brightening. The goal of traditional microdermabrasion is to mechanically slough away the outermost layer of skin using crystals that rapidly penetrate the skin to reveal a brighter, healthier complexion. With new skin abrasion technologies coming to the forefront, we were intrigued by the newest form of Wet/DryMicrodermabrasion: Bio Brasion.


What Makes It Superior to MicroDermabrasion? 

Traditional Microdermabrasion, developed in 1985, is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny crystals to remove the uses a special instrument that employs tiny exfoliated crystals to help remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells to replace the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones.  While the goal of Bio Brasion treatment is the same, there are a few factors that set Bio Brasion

Rather than using fine crystals to penetrate the skin, Bio Brasion is considered a controlled exfoliation in that it uses a diamond-head tip that is controlled by the skin therapist. Unlike microdermabrasion, it is performed on wet skin to loosen up dead skin cells. As well, because Bio Brasion uses a lower suction, the treatment is typically better for all skin types – whereas those with sensitive skin and weak capillaries would be advised to avoid traditional microdermabrasion treatments. The gentle suction also helps to remove impurities and increase blood flow to the epidermis, encouraging cell turnover and production of collagen and elastin. What the end result boils down to is a more effective, deeper and risk-free exfoliation that reveals hydrated and radiant
