DermaSweep is a pain free, bristle tip microdermabrasion system that exfoliates the topmost layer of skin. This micro resurfacing system helps improve microcirculation and oxygenation to promote skin health and boost collagen along with effective exfoliation. As the top layer of skin is swept away, the unique DermaSweep system also delivers infusions that help correct skin imperfections. This treatment option is specifically tailored to each individual to optimize treatment results.
DermaSweep Can Improve:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Brown Spots and Hyperpigmentation
- Uneven Skin Tone and Texture
- Dry Skin
- Overall Skin Health
What equipment is used?
DermaSweep uses a particle-free microdermabrasion machine that uses bristle tip exfoliation and skin specific infusions.
What will the procedure feel like?
The DermaSweep is relatively painless. You will feel a cool wand both glided and taut with suction over the skin. DermaSweep is crystal free, therefore minimizing any cause of irritation.
Do I have to do anything to prepare in advance?
Discontinue use of any topical retinoids (Retin-A, Tazorac, Differin, Ziana, Epiduo, Tretinoin, Clear Plus, Avene Retrinal or Triacneal, Triluma, etc.) and mechanical or granular exfoliation for 5 days prior to treatment. Avoid facial waxing for 7 days prior to treatment.
Follow the recommended skin care regimen as directed by your service provider for treatment. Make sure your skin is not irritated or inflamed before a treatment.
Please tell your provider if you have a history of cold sores as we recommend pretreatment to prevent a flare. Treatment may not be performed if there is an active cold sore.
What will I look like afterwards?
Your skin may appear slightly flushed or “pinkish” post treatment and diminishes throughout the day. This will vary depending on the strength of treatment given. Your skin will feel smoother and brighter. Occasionally you will notice mild areas of scratches and / or petechiae (resembling tiny broken blood vessels) due to the suction of the device. This resolves within 1 week post treatment.
When will I see results?
Results will vary per patient and realistic expectations will be discussed during your first treatment. Having a good at home regimen will help attain optimum results. In addition, smoking, excessive alcohol and excessive sun exposure will limit results.
How many treatments are necessary?
You will see immediate results with skin feeling smoother and looking brighter. Initially we recommend 4-6 treatments spaced every 2 weeks. Then treatments should be monthly for maintenance. Treatments are designed to boost topical product therapy at home to optimize results. You will also need an at home regimen for maintenance. Having a good at home regimen will help attain optimum results. In addition, smoking, excessive alcohol and excessive sun exposure will limit results.
Who cannot have the treatment?
A consultation at the time of treatment will be performed and the skin will be assessed to make sure the patient has no contraindications for treatment. Patients who are on Accutane or have been on Accutane at least 6 months prior are not candidates.
Pregnant and nursing patients: We can tailor all treatments using chemical peels and products that are safe for expectant or nursing mothers.
“Dermasweep is by far my favorite treatment. After the treatment my skin always feels cleaner, firmer and more radiant. Over time I’ve noticed improvement in texture and overall appearance of my skin.”
