DermaSweep

dermasweep skin resurfacing patient

As the largest and most exposed organ of the body, your skin takes quite a beating over time. You might notice a loss of luster, or the appearance of fine lines as factors like the sun and aging begin to have a negative impact on the health of the complexion. It may not be a single problem that concerns you, but your appearance overall that is causing dissatisfaction. Exfoliation treatments can be an excellent way to treat skin that has lost its youthful radiance, removing outermost skin cells that might be dulling and clogging the skin to reveal vibrant, more youthful skin below.

Dr. Levitt and the staff at Levitt Medical Aesthetics are excited to announce the addition of DermaSweep to our menu of nonsurgical treatments, offering our patients unsurpassed skin resurfacing without discomfort or downtime. This procedure is highly customizable to the precise needs of our patients, making it an appropriate choice for nearly everyone regardless of skin type, tone or concern.

What is DermaSweep?

DermaSweep is the latest method of nonsurgical skin resurfacing, featuring innovative tools to produce a more enticing result with solutions tailored to the individual patient. While microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped tool to exfoliate the skin, DermaSweep offers different attachments of fine bristles to cater to your specific needs. Patients requiring more dramatic correction can opt for more aggressive bristles to get the outcome they want, while those with sensitive skin or conditions like rosacea may need a gentler bristle to get the job done without excessive irritation to the skin.

DermaSweep also incorporates a vacuum with the bristle tips, which draws the skin to the device for more intense exfoliation. The suction increases oxygenation and lymphatic drainage as well, cleansing the skin from within and delivering nutrients where they are needed most more effectively. This is a powerful benefit DermaSweep offers over standard microdermabrasion during the exfoliation process.

The exfoliation process is where the benefits of microdermabrasion end. However, DermaSweep adds a second step that ramps up the effects of the procedure. The infusion of nutrients into freshly treated skin allows valuable ingredients to penetrate deeper into the dermal structure where they can produce the most significant changes. Like the bristles used for resurfacing, different formulations can be directed to your precise skin concerns.

Benefits of DermaSweep Treatments

As a nonsurgical skin resurfacing treatment, there are a variety of ways in which DermaSweep stands out from other procedures:

Exfoliation

The patent-pending bristles of the DermaSweep device can be strong enough to address problems like fine lines and shallow scarring, or gentle enough to revive rosacea-affected skin. In addition to reducing the appearance of visible imperfections on the skin’s surface, the treatment also stimulates collagen production in the deeper dermal structure to improve the tone and texture of the skin.

Circulation

The combination of exfoliation action with gentle vacuum suction stimulates blood circulation at the same time it creates a more effective resurfacing process. Increased blood flow increases both lymphatic drainage and oxygenation, allowing needed nutrients to be delivered faster for better results.

Infusion

Paraben-free solutions delivered to the skin during the DermaSweep process takes this resurfacing treatment to the next level. Options in infusions include:

  • EpiFusions – target specific concerns like discoloration, loss of luster and dehydration
  • PremiumFusions – reverse aging effects with peptides, growth factors and DNA-repair enzymes
  • PeelFusions – provide the benefits of traditional chemical peels without flaking or peeling

Our staff will select the right solution for you based on your concerns, the overall condition of your skin and the results you hope to achieve.

Candidates for the DermaSweep Process

Because the intensity of the DermaSweep can be adjusted to the individual, this procedure is appropriate for nearly every skin type. Men and women may consider this treatment for the following issues:

  • Early signs of aging and sun damage
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Skin that is dry or dehydrated
  • Acne- prone skin or acne scarring
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Enlarged pores
  • Laxity and fine lines around the eyes

We will evaluate the condition of your skin to determine whether DermaSweep is the right treatment for you. With a variety of procedures at our disposal, we will make sure you receive the one that will best meet your cosmetic goals.

The DermaSweep Procedure

You will relax in a comfortable position throughout your DermaSweep procedure. Since there is no pain associated with the process, there is no need for anesthesia at the beginning of your appointment. We will begin by using the bristles to exfoliate the skin, while the gentle suction action removes the loose particles and skin cells to reveal your more radiant complexion. Once the bristles have completed their job, we will apply the topical infusion serum to penetrate the skin pores and produce the desired effect. The administration of these solutions will be both cooling and soothing after the resurfacing process.

Most DermaSweep treatments take about 30 minutes in our office. However, precise time will depend on the size and number of treatment areas and the specific condition we are treating. We will offer a time estimate during your consultation so you can schedule the appropriate amount of time for your appointment.

After Your DermaSweep Treatment

When you leave our office, you will likely be sporting a pink glow to the skin immediately following the resurfacing. This discoloration typically doesn’t last more than about 30 minutes. You will be able to resume work or activities immediately. We do advise you to keep your skin out of direct sunlight or wear a high-quality sunscreen for at least a few days after your procedure to protect vulnerable skin from burning.

Many of our patients see a noticeable improvement in their skin right after their treatment. The skin may look softer and smoother, and some imperfections may already be visibly reduced. However, we usually recommend a series of three to five treatment sessions to achieve an optimal outcome. This gentle treatment is also one you can make a part of your regular beauty schedule to maintain your healthy glow indefinitely.

If your skin isn’t giving you the radiance you want any longer, it may be time for a bit of help. DermaSweep is a revolutionary method of nonsurgical skin resurfacing that produces stellar results for most of our patients without discomfort or downtime.
