What is Dermafrac™?
DermaFrac™ is a unique new micro-needling system that creates precisely calibrated micro-channels into the skin while simultaneously infusing active topical agents. The depth of the sterile needles is designed to create micro-channels that penetrate just below the outer layers of the skin but just above the capillaries and nerve endings.
The result is a skin rejuvenation procedure that has no bleeding and typically no pain while enabling enhanced infusion of the topically applied agents. Some transient redness may occur and this corresponds with the intensity of the treatment, but typically DermaFrac is a no down-time procedure.
Will I need time to recuperate?
No. You may return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure. You may experience some pink or slightly red areas, which should fade quickly. The degree of redness you experience will be directly related to the amount of stimulation during the procedure.
How many treatments are needed?
This varies depending on the skin condition being treated as well as the severity, but typically 4- 6 treatments are advised and usually at about two-week intervals, however, a treatment regimen will be tailored to your particular skin condition and lifestyle and budget during your consultation.
Does it remove scars?
Scars may respond very well to DermaFrac™ and are based on several factors such as the age of the scar, depth of the scar tissue, individual skin types, location, and the care given to the area between treatments.
Does it help acne?
Yes. DermaFrac™ has been found to be very effective for both active and cystic acne. DermaFrac™ is even appropriate for treating teenage acne.
Can it help get rid of stretch marks?
The consensus is that the newer the stretch mark, the better the response seems to be. In most cases, improvement is seen to some degree. A consultation would be recommended in order to better assess the degree of improvement that might be gained.
Does it get rid of sunspots or skin discoloration?
Yes, It can be very effective in removing unwanted pigmentation, sun damage, and uneven skin color and tone. In some cases, the Medical Aesthetician may recommend a product to enhance the results. Sun protection is essential however when treating skin discoloration disorders. Sunblock will be required.
