Skin resurfacing is a proven way to soften the appearance of textural flaws — including acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines and oversized pores — and improve the skin’s overall radiance. At Silk Medical Spa, we can rejuvenate the surface of the skin using a few different methods, including facial peels and microneedling. Sometimes we use one of these methods as a standalone solution; in other cases, we combine them for more transformative results.
If you’d like to improve the texture and tone of your skin, our team would be happy to evaluate your needs in person and recommend the most suitable treatment or combination of treatments to help you achieve your goals.
The Rejuvenize Peel is a chemical peel that accelerates the skin exfoliation process. A specially formulated chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing the damaged outer layer to flake or slough off and revealing softer, smoother and firmer skin. This remedies imperfections like fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, large pores and uneven skin texture.
Initial results can be seen after a single peel, with more noticeable results after three to six peels. The exact number of treatments depends on how damaged the skin is.
Another skin resurfacing treatment that we have had great success with for acne scars, large pores and poor skin texture is microneedling. Using a special device with tiny needles, we create tiny punctures in the skin. These wounds trigger the body’s natural healing process, causing the skin to produce more collagen for a smoother and more youthful appearance.
We normally recommend a series of between four and six microneedling procedures to see the best results.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Some of our skin resurfacing patients can benefit from the use of platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, which is taken from their own blood. PRP is full of proteins called growth factors that help with tissue healing and cell regeneration. When used for facial rejuvenation purposes, PRP can prompt the body to produce new collagen and tissue. As a result, wrinkles soften and the skin looks and feels softer and smoother.
After drawing a small amount of blood, we spin the blood through a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma. Then, the PRP is microneedled into the skin for skin rejuvenation. It takes only a few minutes to complete the injections.
Initial results can be seen about three to four weeks after microneedling, continuing to improve over time. Multiple treatment sessions spaced one to two months apart are recommended to achieve the desired outcomes.
