Frequently Asked Questions

Q1 ) How does the DermaSweep Microdermabrasion system work?

Using a vacuum system and an assortment of treatment tips, the DermaSweep MD Microdermabrasion wand gently lifts the skin, removing the top layer and then vacuums away the dead skin. The vacuum cleans the pores and increases blood flow to the skin’s surface to encourage collagen formation. Skin specific treatments, called infusions, are then applied to the skin to address conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation and dehydration.


Q2 ) What type of skin conditions does microdermabrasion treat?

    • Reducing early aging lines
    • Hyperpigmentation
    • Uneven skin texture
    • Surgical Scars
    • Uneven skin texture
    • Acne
    • Photo damage
    • Improving overall skin health



Q3 ) Is getting a microdermabrasion treatment painful?

The treatment is safe and painless. The moisture of the topical treatment applied after exfoliation will leave your skin with a cool, refreshed feeling. The risks associated with traditional microdermabrasion are eliminated. DermaSweep does not use aluminum oxide crystals that can remain embedded in the skin and cause irritation.


Q4 ) Will I miss work or need to stay indoors after a microdermabrasion?

The 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.


Q5 ) How long will it take before I see results after a microdermabrasion?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 10 to 14 days apart, supported by a daily post-treatment regimen.
