Advances in Dermatology Equipment

Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion are popular cosmetic procedures which remove upper layers of the skin.

Traditionally, dermabrasion has been performed with tools that scrape off skin layers. In recent years, new tools have been introduced that do the job with more precision. Many can also extract blackheads and whiteheads as well.

Dermalinfusion and Hydrodermabrasion Skin Treatments

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion combines dermalinfusion, treatment that uses mechanized tools to remove dead skin and upper skin layers, and hydrodermabrasion, which uses a solution.

The SilkPeel treatment uses vacuum pressure to remove upper skin layers. It then applies a therapeutic solution to the newly exposed skin, giving it an extra layer of protection. It’s sort of like the hydro treatment, except it delivers a solution to new skin instead of using it to remove old layers.

SilkPeel is used on the face to treat acne and hyperpigmentation, and to remove fine lines and wrinkes. It’s also used elsewhere on the body to remove stretch marks and cellulite.

Best of all, SilkPeel is quick and painless. We offer it in our “lunchtime facial” treatment because you can safely reapply your makeup right after!

New Aesthetics Tools to Repair or Rejuvenate Skin

There’s also a noninvasive treatment that can repair skin damaged from too much sun or discolored by spots from chemotherapy, medication, and the aging process: Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL).

IPL’s photorejuvenation can be used anywhere on the skin. It evens out skin tone and can even repair sagging. It usually requires a series of treatments and must be approved by a physician. Our medical director, Dr. Francis Toscano, reviews all IPL submissions before allowing them to go forward.

The Dermapen is another wonderful development that reduces wrinkles, softens scars, and rejuvenates skin. Red Bamboo Medi Spa was the first to offer this service in Florida.

The Dermapen is a highly precise, microneedle treatment that creates microchannels in the skin to deliver nurturing hyaluronic acid. Dr. Toscano delivers all Dermapen treatments.
