» About DermaSweep:

Q) How does the Dermasweep™ MD system work?

The system then vacuums away the dead skin in a precise and controlled manner. The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow, cleans the pores and moves the skin debris to a HEPA filter. The increased blood flow to the skin's surface encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning the epidermis as well. Using the Epi-Infusion option, skin specific treatments can also be applied to the skin during exfoliation.
