DermaSweep is the latest innovation in skin rejuvenation. DermaSweep’s Hydro-Assisted Dermabrasion gently lifts the skin surface as the device “sweeps away” the dead skin layer, resulting in a deeper exfoliation and polish of your skin. The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow and cleans the pores. The increased blood flow encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning your skin improving the overall skin health.
What skin conditions does DermaSweep treat?
Most everyone can enjoy the DermaSweep’s rejuvenation benefits. Typical conditions include:
Is DermaSweep safe?
Absolutely! Khuu Dermatology's DermaSweep providers are trained and certified. Carefully following our treatment protocol, DermaSweep treatments are one of the safest, lowest-risk, age defying procedures available.
Why is DermaSweep better than other exfoliation and microdermabrasion treatments?
A revolutionary microdermabrasion system eliminates the messy and discomforting crystals often used by alternative systems to remove dead skin. Dermasweep features a closed system with a variable level vacuum pump that gently lifts the skin as our bristles “sweep away” the dead layer of skin in a precise and controlled manner. Bristles really matter! DermaSweep enables airflow through the bristles to allow the skin to be gently drawn into the bristle for a more effective and less irritating exfoliation. DermaSweep results is a clean, consistently effective treatment that patients/clients enjoy. Patients/clients see a noticeable skin improvement with fewer treatments and improved results even with the first treatment.
Is the treatment painful or come with side effects?
The treatment is painless. DermaSweep does not use aluminum oxide crystals that can remain embedded in the skin and cause irritation. The revolutionary, patent-pending bristle tip technology causes less irritation to the skin while at the same time allowing a more comfortable, aggressive and rejuvenating treatment. You may feel mild tightening or tingling after exfoliation but the skin will be quite smooth. The moisture of any topical treatment will leave your skin with a cool, refreshed feeling. An anti-oxidant enriched sunscreen is essential to use afterwards since the exfoliated skin has temporarily lost some of its natural protection to the environment. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure and tanning for a few days.
What will my skin look after treatment?
Your skin will be instantly smoother and you will notice a vibrant glow after the first treatment. Hyper-pigmentation, acne scars, fine lines, and stretch-marks will lessen gradually over a series of microdermabrasion treatments.
When will I see results?
Your skin will have a warm, pinkish glow that may last up to 30 minutes. Your post treatment care is simple and easy and will be explained by your aesthetician.
How long will the results last?
Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments spaced over 10 days to two weeks apart, supported by a daily post treatment routine. If you’re undergoing microdermabrasion incombination with laser skin rejuvenation (photorejuvenation or chemical peel), then the results will last much longer.
Will I miss work or need to stay indoors?
The DermaSweep treatment can be done during a normally scheduled office visit and in most cases you can return to your normal activities. However, it is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure for at least a few days after your treatment.
What will I do after the treatment?
A home skincare regime will be recommended to maintain the results of your treatment.
