If you’ve ever had a chemical peel, you know the benefits are highly desirable. The recovery, however, can be less than ideal. That’s because chemical peels mean setting aside a couple of days for the peeling process to run its course (sending you straight to your calendar to schedule appointments far enough away from any major events). But all that is changing thanks to a treatment that eliminates the need for planned downtime.
DermaSweep is a non-invasive, exfoliating facial treatment that “takes micro-resurfacing to the next level” using “patent-pending bristle treatment tips that gently lift away the top layer of skin and increase micro-circulation.” The process also encourages increased collagen production. Collagen, if you’re not familiar, is the holy grail of youth. Babies are full of collagen, hence their perfectly plump and incredibly soft skin!
Following a treatment, expected results include enhanced lymphatic drainage and oxygenation as well as an overall reduction in pigmentation and aging lines. Treatments are further enhanced with infusions targeting specific skincare concerns.
Locally, Ciao Bella Skincarein Salisbury is one of the only licensed skincare providers north of Boston certified to perform this service. Owner and lead esthetician Karen Damon was motivated to bring DermaSweep to Ciao Bella because “it is an ideal treatment for clients who want to see dramatic improvements in their skin without the downtime that is associated with peels and collagen induction therapy.”
Put simply, DermaSweep is easy. Though I was nervous before my first appointment, the treatments are painless (and I don’t consider myself to be someone with a high pain tolerance!). It feels like a great resurfacing treatment and is highly effective without being harsh. It felt far less abrasive than an exfoliating face wash or cream I might apply at home.
Following the initial treatment I observed that the Dermasweep results seemed more dramatic than a facial. Many skin profiles will be good candidates for DermaSweep and you can find answers to some frequently asked questions below.
Who is DermaSweep for?
DermaSweep is for anyone who desires cleaner, brighter, smoother skin. The service can be performed all over the face, as well as around the eye area. It is an ideal treatment for anyone seeking real deal resurfacing. It will help even skin tone and reduce acne scars, fine lines and hyperpigmentation (sun damage).
What to expect during a treatment?
Following a DermaSweep treatment, a paraben-free infusion delivers a targeted serum into the skin. Infusion options include Vitamin C to brighten, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and more.
After a treatment (which takes about 30 minutes) you can expect your face to feel super smooth. You might experience a bit of redness and should expect it to fade by the next day.
How often should treatments be scheduled?
Most clients will notice a difference following an initial treatment with best results coming from a set of treatments (usually between three and six) spaced about two weeks apart. Following this initial set of treatments, the DermaSweep routine can be maintained through appointments spaced four to six weeks apart.
