WHAT IS DERMAFRAC?
Dermafrac is a one-time unique, powerful treatment that addresses many of your skin’s problems. Our injector Rebecca uses traditional time-tested microneedling treatment, using a device that consists of a number of fine needles that cause microscopic injuries to your skin. Your body reacts by starting an instant healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and the renewal of skin cells. The discomfort you will feel is minimal and the procedure is fairly fast.
While microneedling is powerful skin healing process in itself, Dermafrac builds on its results, combining it with microdermabrasion, a non-invasive exfoliating procedure, and the infusion of specially formulated serum into the skin for maximum effect. Combining these three procedures, Dermafrac produces results that are by far superior to the results achieved by each of its elements alone.
BENEFITS OF MICRODERMABRASION
- Elimination of the layer of dry, dull skin
- Boosting the blood circulation in the skin
- Improving minor skin imperfections
- Rejuvenating skin
BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING
- Boosting the production of collagen and elastin
- Enabling deeper penetration of specially formulated serum
BENEFITS OF THE SPECIALLY FORMULATED SERUM
- Infusion of serum’s five active ingredients stimulates the production of collagen and fibroblast in the skin
- Grow factor serum stimulates the growth, healing and cell differentiation
- The serum key ingredients improve binding of skin cells to water molecules for long-term hydration
- Serum adds vitamin E for improved resistance to UV radiation
- It adds vitamin A to speed up cell turnover
- It adds antioxidants such as green tea, white tea and grape seeds to calm the skin
LIGHTENING OF THE SKIN
- The serum contains kojic acid, which brightens the skin tone and evens out skin pigmentation
- Kojic acid has antibacterial and antifungal properties
CLARIFYING OF THE SKIN
- Salicylic acid in the serum (a beta=hydroxyl acid) opens clogged pores and destroys bacteria that cause acne, greatly reducing the number of acne
- Lactic acid in the serum (alpha hydroxyl acid) exfoliates the skin and increases the production of collagen, minimizing wrinkles and fine lines, as well as reducing blackheads and whiteheads
- Infusion of two percent ethyl ascorbic acid targets damage caused by free radicals
- As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C reduces the damage caused by free radicals, which contributes to the loss of collagen in the skin, appearance of wrinkles and skin dryness
DERMAFRAC HAS POWERFUL EFFECT ON:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Damaged caused by sun
- Brown spots and pigmentation
- Open pores
- Mild acne scaars
- Dry and dehydrated skin
HOW DOES DERMAFRAC WORK?
Dermafrac uses a device that consists of a vacuum roller with 180 sterile micro-needles to stimulate the production of collagen and the regeneration of skin cells. As the device moves across the skin, the skin is pulled by gentle suction into contact with the micro-needles. The created tension minimizes discomfort and ensures that all areas of the skin come into contact with the needles.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE TREATMENT?
What makes this three-step treatment so perfect is the fact that it is completely customized to your needs, concerns and skin goals. The first step in the treatment is a consultation with our injector Rebecca in order to formulate the unique treatment protocol for you, depending on your skin condition and goals. Based on this consultation, Rebecca will recommend the most appropriate serum for you. Once she understands your unique needs, she will cleanse and prime your skin. She will start with Microdermabrasion in order to remove the outer layer of the skin with its dead and damaged cells. It follows with Microneedling. The needles penetrate your skin at the precise depth necessary for the desired correction. Simultaneously, Rebecca will infuse specially formulated serum into the deeper layer of your skin. The entire procedure takes less than one hour.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Most of our clients can resume their regular activities after the procedure. A few experience a mild redness immediately after the treatment, which is easily concealed with makeup, preferably a breathable mineral formula. Your skin may be more sensitive few days after the Dermafrac procedure. You should be careful to use appropriate makeup and to generously apply sun protection when going outside. Rebecca can design an appropriate skin care routine for your unique needs, which will enhance the result of the Dermafrac treatment.
HOW FAST CAN I EXPECT RESULTS FROM DERMAFRAC AND HOW LONG THEY LAST?
You can expect immediate results after your procedure and your skin will continue to improve gradually. As you leave our clinic, your skin will have better texture, will be plumper and radiant. The skin will continue to produce collagen and your cells will continue to renew, so the effect of Dermafrac will continue to grow. In long term, you can expect to see smoother wrinkles and acne scars, the skin spots will slowly fade and the elasticity of your skin will continue to improve.
We recommend our clients to start with a series of six Dermafrac treatments four to six weeks apart. If you are preparing for a big event and would like to useDermafrac to rejuvenate your skin to look your best, we suggest that you schedule your treatments so that the final session ends two weeks before the event. Occasional touch-up treatments are recommended in order to maintain the results of your Dermafrac treatment over the long term.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
The risks of Dermafrac are minimal. Occasional side effects are mild redness immediately after the treatment, but it is rare and it will be addressed during your consultation. Dermafrac is gentle, non-invasive treatment suitable for most people, regardless of their medical condition and skin problems. The only exception are clients who are taking specific medication, who have recently had certain medical procedures and those with certain skin condition. Our injector Rebecca at FACE Cosmedical will evaluate the condition of your skin and will determine whether Dermafrac is the best and the safest choice for your needs.
CAN DERMAFRAC BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
We offer Dermafrac as a stand-alone procedure, or we can combine it with other procedures that will produce the best results for your particular goals. The results of three-step Dermafrac treatment are immediately visible and stunning. Combining Dermafrac with another skin rejuvenation treatment might produce the results that are even more dramatic. We can talk about the full menu of our non-surgical procedures. One of the most popular treatment options is Omnilux, a treatment that uses LED lights in three wavelengths. It is used to address a range of skin issues. There are also anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and facial peels. We can discuss about including any of them in your personal skin rejuvenation plan.
HOWTO CHOOSE THE BEST DERMAFRAC PROVIDER?
Needling is quickly becoming an essential part of skin care and there are now several at-home devices that can be used instead of going to a professional clinic. While professionals use similar devices to those available on the market, devices used at home cannot produce the same results as professional micro-needling. The needles on the at-home devices are too short to reach the right layer of skin necessary to achieve the sufficient boost of collagen production. Using needling devices at home increase the risk of infection if the device is not properly cleaned.
By choosing a professional microneedling treatment at FACE Cosmedical, you can guarantee that high-quality instruments are used and the highest standards of hygiene and safety are met. Dermafrac’s needles are longer, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin. Results are further enhanced by the inclusion of microdermabrasion and custom serum infusion. Overall, microneedling done by a cosmetic or medical professional is a safer, deeper and more effective treatment.
Professional, reputable clinics such as FACE Cosmedical guarantee their clients high standard of hygiene and the best available tools and devices. Dermafrac device we use has longer needles which are able to penetrate the client’s skin to the exact depth necessary. The results are enhanced even further by adding microdermabrasion and the infusion of the specially formulated serum to the treatment. Using professionals for your microneedling is safer, longer lasting and more effective than what you can achieve at home.
