What Is DermaFrac Microneedling and Microdermabrasion?
Want to give your skin that Hollywood red carpet, dewy-smooth glow? Look no further! The DermaFrac device available at our Echo Park, California center is designed to offer multi-functional skin care while minimizing all discomfort and downtime. This awesome device performs both microdermabrasion and microneedling functions, effectively curing your skin of melasma, sun damage, acne, scars, and other signs of aging. More effective than a simple fractional laser or chemical peel, the DermaFrac also offers easy delivery of infused ingredients in a pain-free, no downtime treatment session.
How Does DermaFrac Work?
DermaFrac treatments work using a precision controlled handpiece. This handpiece contains a microneedle roller tip cap and a serum cartridge. When you visit our center, Dr. Diego will take the time to examine your skin and determine the most effective serum for you. Our in-house, Infinite Wellness MD product line is full of great options! Once a serum has been decided on, the roller is moved across your skin. As it moves, the vacuum attached to the DermaFrac device gently pulls the skin into contact with hundreds of micro-needles that painlessly penetrate the epidermis and into the upper dermis (papillary dermis). The channels created through this process act as pathways for the delivery of the serums to the all important upper dermis. In addition to this, this amazing device also offers microdermabrasion for increased epidermal thickness as well as high energy LED therapy.
What Does DermaFrac Treat?
The DermaFrac system was made to target signs of aging, melasma, sun damage, acne, and scarring. Its ability to incorporate serums and creams during the microneedling process makes it an excellent skin care choice. Our center is proud to offer this delivery system when providing patients with our natural, medical-grade skin care products. By using DermaFrac, we are able to deliver effective results that make a lasting impact. If you’re ready to rejuvenate your skin and improve its texture, we encourage you to visit us today.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Treatment with the DermaFrac system varies based on specific patient skin care needs. Typically, most sessions last about 45 minutes. Though the microneedles might sound scary, treatment with this device is not painful. For reference, the DermaFrac feels a lot like a more intense chemical peel. What makes it tolerable is the serum that is applied to the skin. While the microneedles and vacuum do their work, this serum cools the skin and relieves a big part of the discomfort.
There is no anesthesia required and no downtime needed, but some post-treatment redness can be expected after this treatment. The duration and extent of the redness largely depends on your skin’s sensitivity and typically lasts a couple of hours. Though tempting, it’s important not to wear makeup to cover the redness as it can make the situation worse. After your skin has cooled down, you will notice an improvement in both its look and its feel. Your texture will be smoother, and your complexion will look more even and radiant.
