Dermasweep Microdermabrasion System
This next generation microdermabrasion system eliminates the messy and often times irritating aluminum oxide crystals that most microdermabrasion systems rely on to remove dead skin. Instead, Dermasweep features a closed system that features a variable level vacuum pump that gently lifts the skin surface as the device “sweeps away” the dead skin. This medical-grade system results in a deeper peel and polish of your skin. Dermasweep is also used to individualize treatments to specific skin conditions such as acne, sun-damaged or hyperpigmentation. Early signs of skin aging are also treated using Dermasweep’s unique Epidermal Infusion treatments.
Dermabrasion removes a layer of surface skin to improve the appearance of facial scarring due to acne, chicken pox, injury or other causes, as well as uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage, tattoos, age spots and certain kinds of skin lesions. The skin is frozen, typically with a spray, and then abraded with a high-speed rotary instrument for a dramatically smoother, fresher look. After the procedure it is normal to feel a sensation similar to sunburn for a week or so, at which time most patients are able to return to work. The newly revealed skin will likely appear pinker than usual for two to three months. Patients should be sure to adequately protect skin from sunlight.
