The cold winter months can leave skin feeling dry and dehydrated. But dealing with dull wintertime skin isn’t something that we have to accept, because there is an effective tool at our disposal that evens out skin tone and boosts hydration. This is a resurfacing treatment called Dermasweep, which will help you look your best in the New Year.

You may have heard of microdermabrasion as a way to buff and brighten your skin. This procedure is effective in treating uneven skin because it gets rid of the dry and dead skin cells on the surface exposing the newer, younger skin below. Dermasweep is a form of microdermabrasion that uses gentle bristles, which can be tailored to different skin types for a more customized treatment.

What is the difference between Dermasweep and Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion comes in many shapes and forms, but traditional treatments use a spray of tiny diamond crystals to blast away any dirt or dead cells from the top layer of skin. While it works to even out skin tone, this process can be harsh on sensitive skin or on areas of the face where the skin is thinner – like around the eyes.

Dermasweep goes beyond traditional micro-resurfacing by combining customized brush tip exfoliation with adjustable vacuum pressure that lifts and sweeps away any dead skin. This means that the treatment can be tailored to your skin’s specific needs. This process of dry bristly exfoliation creates remarkable results and is totally non-invasive. While classic microdermabrasion, on the other hand, can cause sensitivity and redness since it is not as fine-tuned as the adjustable bristle method.

How effective is it at treating uneven skin tone?

Conditions like acne, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and depletion of collagen can all be helped with the Dermasweep procedure. Treatments encourage circulation in the skin which helps to bring oxygen to the surface and stimulate blood flow. This added circulation means that nutrients are delivered faster and texture, tone and radiance are all improved.

The suction and microexfoliation also encourage lymphatic drainage, which targets and removes the toxins in your skin. Encouraging those toxins to drain out through the lymph nodes helps get rid of any excess fluids that can cause blocked pores, puffiness around the eyes, extra sebum production and acne. Dermasweep will leave you with a glowing and radiant complexion, even after only one treatment.

Newly exfoliated skin is also in the optimal state for added nutrient infusions, which can be done through O2 facial treatments. Vitamins, antioxidants and peptides are able to penetrate into the skin more effectively without the barrier of dead skin getting in the way. But even without an added infusion facial, you will still notice that after a Dermasweep treatment, your at-home skincare will be more effective, and if you wear make-up, it will go on a lot more smoothly.
