Dermasweep – The Next Generation in Skin Care Infusions and Microdermabrasion

Art of Skin MD and our Aesthetician Services is proud to announce the arrival of DermaSweep.  DermaSweep is a closed-system microdermabrasion and skin infusion device.  In two steps, if first clears away dull, dead skin cells and secondly, adds back specifically chosen infusions to the skin to hydrate, and treat the skin.   DermaSweep is different from other microdermabrasion systems.  It does not use particles such as crystals.  As a result of the vacuum assist technology, upper layers of the skin are safely and painlessly removed, leaving glowing, fresh, and smooth skin in its place.  This is considered the "dry" portion of the DermaSweep treatment.   The second phase of DermaSweep treatment is the "wet" or "epi-infusion" treatment.  During this portion of DermaSweep, a specially selected infusion treatment (anti-acne, hydrating, anti-aging, antioxidant) is used to hydrate the skin, leaving the appearance silky smooth and skin glowing. A short video of the procedure from the Art of Skin MD YouTube station is featured below and narrated by Dr. Melanie Palm:       DermaSweep is highly effective as a complementary treatment for the following conditions: *Fine lines from early aging *Sun-damaged or photodamaged skin *Dull-appearing skin *Acne-prone skin *Hyperpigmenation and melasma *Enlarged pores   DermaSweep is an excellent complement to most facials provided through our Aesthetician Services.  DermaSweep works well in conjunction with laser treatment and photofacials.  Rosacea and sun damage treated with IPL can also be joined with a series of DermaSweep for total skin rejuvenation.  Pigment-targeting DermaSweep infusions can complement melasma treatments such as the Spectra laser.  Hydrating infusions from DermaSweep can follow skin treated by photodynamic therapy (for precancerous skin lesion treatment) or fractionated laser skin resurfacing.   Contact the staff at Art of Skin MD or call (858) 792-SKIN (7546) to find out more about DermaSweep and incorporating this innovative procedure into your skin care regimen.
