Time for a Spring Cleaning: Vacuum Away a Dull, Dry Complexion with DermaSweep™


The Skin Center Medical Spa now offers DermaSweep™, the next generation of microdermabrasion.

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 26, 2008 -- With Spring just around the corner, its time to refresh, renew and revitalize the dull, drab skin left by long winter days. And The Skin Center Medical Spa (http://www.theskincentermd.com), with locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio, has the perfect treatment to sweep away the winter blues.

DermaSweep? (http://www.theskincentermd.com/treatment/dermasweep.htm) is the next generation of microdermabrasion, combining powerful exfoliation and skin resurfacing with potent topical solutions that leave the skin looking brighter, smoother and rejuvenated with no residual flaking or peeling. Because the DermaSweep? uses a gentle vacuum to lift the skin against the treatment tip, the topmost layer of skin is removed and suctioned away. The underlying skin is fresh, healthy, radiant and has increased circulation. The increased circulation encourages new collagen formation and firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

An added benefit of the DermaSweep? treatment is the application of the Epi-Infusion. Epi-Infusions are nutrient-rich topical solutions that address specific skin conditions such as dehydration, hyperpigmentation and acne. When the Epi-Infusion is applied under the vacuum pressure, the nutrients are delivered deep into the dermis.

"People who have had a microdermabrasion (http://www.theskincentermd.com/treatment/power_peel.htm) treatment will be amazed by the results of the DermaSweep?," said Debra Thomas, RN and clinical administrator for The Skin Center Medical Spa. "The DermaSweep? takes microdermabrasion to the next level. These treatments are highly customizable with the variety of treatment tips available. The added benefit of the Epi-Infusions enhances the results by treating very specific skin conditions. The DermaSweep? allows for a very precise and controlled treatment that cannot be achieved with other types of microdermabrasion."

For people experiencing active acne, the DermaSweep? Epi-Infusion treatment for acne penetrates further into the dermis than topically applied medication, effectively treating the acne at the source. The Epi-Infusion acne treatment combines the exfoliating and resurfacing treatment of microdermabrasion with proven acne-fighting ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Which Hazel to cleanse pores and remove impurities associated with acne outbreaks.

The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic treatments, including the minimally-invasive SmartLipo? (http://www.theskincentermd.com/treatment/smartlipo.htm) or laser-assisted liposuction, which is designed to improve a person's appearance with little downtime.

In addition to minimally-invasive medical treatments, The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in a number of surgical procedures including liposuction, abdominal tucks, breast augmentation, nose contouring, chin augmentation, upper and lower eyelid surgery and the QuickLift? procedure.
