How does the DermaSweep MD system work?
Using a medical grade variable-level vacuum system and an assortment of treatment tips, the DermaSweep wand gently lifts the skin against the appropriate treatment tip, removing the top most layer of skin. The system then vacuums away the dead skin in a precise and controlled manner. The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action wand stimulates blood flow, cleans the pores and moves the skin debris to a HEPA filter. The increased blood flow to the skin’s surface encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning the epidermis as well. Using the Epi-infusion option, skin specific treatments can also be applied to the skin during exfoliation.
How does the system work to reduce early aging lines and other specific conditions?
DermaSweep Epi-Infusion treatments combine exfoliation with delivery of skin specific topical solutions, leaving patients with fresher feeling and better looking skin. The DermaSweep’s topical solutions are formulated to treat specific dermatological conditions. The solution is applied under vacuum pressure at the same time the system exfoliates the epidermis. The result is an effective treatment that addresses each patient’s unique skincare needs. The following is a short list of topical solutions and skin conditions that can be addressed with the Epi-Infusion wand:
Acne- Salicylic Acid, a medicated solution for the treatment of Acne and clogged pores
Dehydration- Hyaluronic Acid containing Aloe Vera and Chamomile. This solution is especially formulated for normal to dry, combination and sensitive skin.
Hyperpigmentation- This skin brightening solution with hydroquinone, azelaic acid and kojic acid works to lighten pigmentation.
