You’ve probably heard the terms microdermabrasion and DermaSweep™ before, but they sound very foreign. I know, but I’m here to explain what it is and some of the benefits of Microdermabrasion and DermaSweep™.
What is Microdermabrasion?
First, Microdermabrasion is simply removal of the outer most layer of dead skin cells. The medical term for this layer is known as the stratum corneum.
There are several types of Microdermabrasion. One type includes tiny crystals to buff and sluff. Another type is called a Diamond tone uses an abrasive tip to remove dull skin. Both are very effective, however their only purpose is to remove the very top level of dead skins cells.
What is Dermabrasion?
The medical dermabrasion machine at Associates in Dermatology is called a DermaSweep™. It utilizes specialty bristles and an adjustable vacuum pressure suited for all skin types.
In addition to removal of sluggish dead skin, it has another important feature called infusion therapy. It actually replaces or feeds the skin once treated. The infusion process uses a silk soft tip with a variety of chemicals & vitamins to treat the concerns of the skin. For example Vitamin C provides a powerful antioxidant while also offering a natural protective shield from environmental factors. Other infusions address skin types like those with acne, sun damage, sensitive skin and aging skin.
