  14. 14. <ul><li>Epidermis - The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin that acts as the body's major barrier against the external environment. Dry skin occurs if the epidermis becomes dehydrated. This is also the major site of free-radical damage caused by chronic exposure to sunlight. </li></ul><ul><li>Dermis - The dermis is a layer of skin between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissues composed of collagen, elastic fibers and extrafibrillar matrix. Production of collagen slows as the skin ages which contributes to the formation of wrinkles. </li></ul><ul><li>Hair Follicle – The part of the skin that grows hair. This is the primary site of acne development. </li></ul><ul><li>Melanocyte – Melanin producing cells located in the bottom most layer (stratum basale) of the epidermis. Melanocytes can overproduce melanin thus causing hyperpigmentation in skin. </li></ul>Review of Skin Anatomy Confidential. For Internal Use Only
  15. 15. Dry Skin (Xerosis) <ul><li>Symptoms include a feeling of skin tightness, especially after showering, bathing or swimming, skin that appears shrunken or dehydrated, skin that feels and looks rough rather than smooth, itching (pruritus) that sometimes may be intense, slight to severe flaking, scaling or peeling, fine lines or cracks, redness and deep fissures that may bleed in severe cases </li></ul><ul><li>Causes include weather, heating, air conditioning, hot baths/showers, harsh soaps/detergents, sun exposure, psoriasis or thyroid disorders. </li></ul><ul><li>Source : Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research ( </li></ul>Confidential.

  17. 17. SilkPeel Dermalinfusion Hydrating Formula: Key Ingredients for improvement of dry skin Confidential. For Internal Use Only INCI Function Glycerin A naturally-derived humectant which helps retain moisture. Sodium Hyaluronate A naturally-derived mucopolysaccharide that is a component of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), the water-soluble compounds responsible for the wettability, water-holding and absorbing powers of the skin. Provides exceptional moisturization, lubricity, luxurious slip and a remarkable afterfeel to the skin. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract An extract from the leaves of Aloe barbadensis Miller. It provides remarkable conditioning and moisturizing properties to help calm and refresh skin. Allantoin An active skin protectant used for its healing, softening, and moisturizing properties.
  18. 18. Hyperpigmentation <ul><li>Focal Hyperpigmentation is most often postinflammatory in nature, occurring after injury (eg, cuts and burns) or other causes of inflammation (eg, acne, lupus). </li></ul><ul><li>Melasma consists of dark brown, sharply marginated, roughly symmetric patches of hyperpigmentation on the face. It occurs primarily in pregnant women and in women taking oral contraceptives. </li></ul><ul><li>Lentigines (singular: lentigo) are flat, tan to brown oval spots. They are commonly due to chronic sun exposure (solar lentigines; sometimes called liver spots). </li></ul><ul><li>Source : The Merck Manual ( </li></ul>Confidential. For Internal Use Only

  21. 21. Photoaging <ul><li>Among other things, chronic exposure to sunlight triggers the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (free radicals) that cause cellular damage which is partially responsible for overall photoaging of skin. </li></ul><ul><li>Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is the main water-soluble nonenzymatic antioxidant in the human body. Vit C interacts with a wide variety of free radicals intracellularly (inside skin cells) and forms a front-line extracellular (outside of skin cells) defense against free radicals in plasma. </li></ul><ul><li>Source : Colven, R.

  23. 23. Vitamin C Serum: Key Ingredients for the improvement of photoaging Confidential. For Internal Use Only Topical application of an antioxidant serum, post-treatment, enhances the effect of microdermabrasion 1 . Reference : 1- Freedman, B. M. Topical antioxidant application enhances the effects of facial microdermabrasion. J Dermatolog Treat 2008:1-6. INCI Function Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate Sodium ascorbyl phosphate is a stable derivative of L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C). It has been demonstrated that addition of sodium ascorbyl phosphate synergistically improves sunscreen photoprotection against UV-induced oxygen species . Additional benefits of sodium ascorbyl phosphate include anti-acne utility, stimulation of collagen synthesis and improvement in the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Tocopheryl Acetate Vitamin E is the major naturally occurring lipid-soluble antioxidant protecting skin from the adverse effects of oxidative stress including photoaging (sun damage). Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract Contains proanthocyanidins, which are very potent antioxidants, helpful for diminishing the sun’s damaging effects and lessening free-radical damage.
  24. 24. Acne <ul><li>Acne vulgaris (acne) is the formation of comedones, papules, pustules, nodules, and/or cysts mainly on facial skin. Acne occurs when pilosebaceous units (hair follicles and their accompanying sebaceous gland) become obstructed with plugs of sebum and desquamated keratinocytes, then colonized and sometimes infected with the normal skin anaerobe Propionibacterium acnes . Manifestations differ depending on whether P. acnes stimulates inflammation in the follicle; thus acne can be noninflammatory or inflammatory. </li></ul><ul><li>Source : The Merck Manual ( </li></ul>Confidential.

  26. 26. Clarifying Serum: Key Ingredients for the improvement of acne Confidential. For Internal Use Only INCI Function Salicylic Acid Referred to as beta hydroxy acid (BHA), it is a multifunctional ingredient that addresses many of the systemic causes of blemishes. For decades dermatologists have been prescribing salicylic acid as an exceedingly effective keratolytic (exfoliant), but it also is an anti-irritant. In concentrations of 0.5% to 2%, it can exfoliate the surface of skin, much like AHA’s. In addition, BHA has the ability to penetrate into the pore (AHAs do not), and thus can exfoliate inside the pore as well as on the surface of the skin, which makes it effective for reducing blemishes, including blackheads and whiteheads.

  37. 37. SilkPeel FAQs <ul><li>QUESTION : What is the benefit of dermalinfusion? Why not just apply a serum to the skin after traditional microdermabrasion? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : Dermalinfusion delivers topical solutions more efficiently than topical application due to the use of pneumatic pressure which helps drive SilkPeel serums deeper into the skin. </li></ul><ul><li>QUESTION : Does the vacuum inhibit the SIlkPeel from effectively infusing serums? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : No. The vacuum merely suctions excess solution on either side of the diamond head that is not absorbed into the skin. </li></ul>Confidential. For Internal Use Only
  38. 38. SilkPeel FAQs <ul><li>QUESTION : How can SilkPeel improve the outcome of IPL treatments? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : When used as a pretreatment, SIlkPeel improves the penetration of light into the skin. </li></ul><ul><li>QUESTION : How can SilkPeel improve the outcome of Fraxel procedures? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : The SilkPeel can be used to remove plaques and hydrate skin 2 weeks post-Fraxel treatment in order to promote enhanced repair and rejuventation of skin. </li></ul>Confidential. For Internal Use Only
  39. 39. SilkPeel FAQs <ul><li>QUESTION : How do you clean and disinfect the SilkPeel? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : Unlike traditional microdermabrasion devices, the SilkPeel is the only dermalinfusion/microdermabrasion system with a validated cleaning and disinfecting method. </li></ul><ul><li>QUESTION : Why doesn’t e med offer oxygen infusion with the SilkPeel? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : One of the central causes of photodamage is oxidation caused by oxygen free radicals. Free radicals are generated from oxygen when skin is moderately exposed to sunlight. </li></ul>Confidential. For Internal Use Only
  40. 40. SilkPeel FAQs <ul><li>QUESTION : Why does the Vitamin C Dermalinfusion Serum use a vitamin C derivative rather than vitamin C? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : The vitamin C derivative (sodium ascorbyl phosphate) is considerably more stable than vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) in aqueous formulas. Besides being a good antioxidant, this derivative also improves acne and hyperpigmentation </li></ul><ul><li>QUESTION : Why do the SilkPeel serums use parabens? Aren’t parabens bad for you? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER : Parabens remain the most effective antimicrobial preservatives for aqueous formulations. Both U.S. (FDA & American Council on Science and Health) and European Health agencies (via European Cosmetic Directive) consider parabens safe for human use. </li></ul>Confidential.
