Cayman Doctors is now offering the DermaSweep MD System, a state-of-the-art precision non-invasive exfoliation and skin-resurfacing system. Its flexibility, precision, and control delivers optimum benefits and treats a wide variety of skin conditions and skin types including:
What Is DermaSweep?
The DermaSweep MD System can be utilized to perform not only non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments but also invasive medical dermabrasion treatments. It is a medical-grade microdermabrasion system that has received FDA approval. Unlike conventional microdermabrasion treatments that involve passing a wand covered in crystals over the skin for exfoliation, the DermaSweep wand lifts the skin against the treatment tip and vacuums away the skin very quickly and precisely. The vacuum action also stimulates blood flow and clears up the pores, so it serves as a much more powerful exfoliation than conventional treatments.
How DermaSweep Works for Wrinkle Removal :
The DermaSweep System is often coupled with an “Epi-Infusion” treatment which helps to improve the exfoliation process and leaves the skin looking and feeling fresher. For individuals who want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, the DermaSweep helps to reach deeper into the dermis and get rid of dead skin cells. The vacuum effect also helps increase collagen production, thereby tightening the skin and making wrinkles less noticeable.
Other Benefits :
The DermaSweep MD System does not require any downtime, but most people are advised to stay out of the sun for several days after their treatment so that the sun does not interfere with the healing process. The post-treatment skin regime typically consists of a hydrating cleanser and toner, followed by the application of a serum that will enhance the effects of the treatment.
Most people see significant results after 4 to 6 treatments that can be spaced over 10 days, or up to two weeks apart. In many cases, the DermaSweep MD System can be am affordable, painless, and effective alternative to injectable fillers or skin tightening treatments. At the very least, this type of treatment helps to improve the complexion and also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment typically takes 30 minutes or less and is painless. It can be combined with other skin treatments like Photofacials.
Cost: CI $200 per treatment (Includes Epi-Infusion)
