Microdermabrasion Q & A

Medical Cosmetics of Connecticut

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the outermost layer of dry, dead skin without using chemicals. By comparison, dermabrasion removes deeper layers of skin.

Although microdermabrasion is typically done using a spray of microcrystals, Dr. Chatterjee offers a crystal-free method using DermaSweep.

How is microdermabrasion performed with DermaSweep?

DermaSweep uses a gentle, adjustable vacuum and different sizes of bristles. While the bristles exfoliate the top layer of your skin, the vacuum stimulates blood flow and cleans your pores.

After your skin is exfoliated, the DermaSweep device infuses your skin with treatments that target your individualized skincare needs. A few examples of the different active ingredients used to rejuvenate your skin include:

  • Skin-strengthening peptides
  • DNA-repairing enzymes
  • Age-reversing growth factors
  • Nourishing proteins
  • Protective antioxidants
  • Skin clearing alpha-hydroxy acids
  • Brightening agents

Which skin conditions are treated with microdermabrasion?

DermaSweep’s exfoliation and infusion treatments help improve problems such as:

  • Dull complexion
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Sun damage, brown spots, and hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines
  • Loose skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Dry, dehydrated skin

DermaSweep infusion treatments also help nourish sensitive and fragile skin and improve your overall skin health.

What should you expect during microdermabrasion?

DermaSweep sessions take about 30 minutes, but Dr. Chatterjee can let you know what to expect after evaluating your skin and deciding which infusion treatment is best.

The treatment is safe and pain-free. Your skin may feel tighter after your session, and you may have a slight pinkish glow for a short time. Otherwise, you’ll mostly notice smooth, refreshed skin.

You should see improvements in your problem areas after the first treatment. You’ll get optimal results with up to six additional DermaSweep sessions, depending on your skin, spaced about two weeks apart.

Is DermaSweep safe for your eyes or used to treat other body areas?

DermaSweep is gentle enough to use around your eyes. You can use microdermabrasion to treat fine lines, skin laxity, dark circles, droopy lids, and puffiness.

You can also get DermaSweep treatment of your arms, hands, neck, and décolleté. Specialized infusions and bristle tips are used to diminish fine lines, improve skin tone and texture, and repair sun spots and age spots.
