SilkPeel Diamond Facial
The SilkPeel Diamond Facial is a non-invasive treatment to refresh and revitalize the skin. Before treatment, your skin is cleaned and prepped, then your provider uses the SilkPeel wand on your skin, moving it over the area of concern to exfoliate skin, extract impurities from pores, and infuse your pores with serum. With no downtime, the SilkPeel Diamond Facial renews and refreshes skin after just one treatment. With continued SilkPeel treatments, skin texture and pigmentation improve; reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and revealing clearer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
“To get healthy glowing skin with the SilkPeel Diamond Facial, I recommend three treatments, each two weeks apart. Additional treatments such as chemical peels and IPL Laser treatments can also address issues like sunspots, redness, and uneven skin tone.” Christopher P. Downing, M.D., FAAD, Houston Dermatology Specialists HoustonDermatologySpecialists.com
EMSCULPT NEO works to reduce fat and increase muscle for a more toned look, by using high-intensity focused electromagnetic fields (HIFEM) to stimulate supramaximal contractions of the muscle, at a higher level of efficacy than can be achieved through voluntary exercise.
