DermaFrac™ is an exciting new treatment at Shepparton Skin Clinic combining microdermabrasion, microneedling with deep tissue serum infusion and LED Light therapy.
DermaFrac™ allows topical solutions to penetrate deeper into the tissues. It creates micro-channels to the dermal epidermal junction, and promotes and stimulates collagen production to plump the skin, while offering simultaneous delivery of the anti-aging infusion serum containing powerful peptidies, skin lighteners and antioxidants.
Designed to improve the overall appearance of your skin, the procedure results in optimal absorption of the serum and stimulates a positive natural response in the skin, improving fine lines and texture.
DermaFrac™ is safe and effective for many skin types and can dramatically improve the appearance of:
Your treatment will be tailored by our skin specialist using a Dermafrac serum that's targeted to your specific condition
The DermaFrac™ involves a 3-step treatment process, with the aim of rejuvenating the skin. The first step includes Microdermabrasion, which involves the mechanical exfoliation of the outer epidermal layer. A textured handpiece is glided over the skin using vacuum pressure to remove dead skin cells at the surface. The result is a smoother and softer complexion with refined pores.
This is followed by gentle Skin Needling which involves the gliding of very small, fine needles over the skin surface using soft vacuum pressure. The needling creates micro-channels to the dermis, whilst simultaneously offering infusion of cosmeceuticals into the skin at a deeper cellular level. The micro-injuries created at this level stimulate the skin’s repair response, which eventuates in the production of collagen and elastin.
This is a treatment which can be tailored to suit many different skin conditions and may offer benefits such as improved hydration and skin plumping, tightening of pores, repairing of scars, as well as reduction of fine lines, reduced pigmentation and congestion.
The final treatment modality involves a gentle LED light which is passed over the skin to help improve redness, inflammation, healing time and stimulate collagen & elastin production.
With little to no downtime, the DermaFrac is a treatment which allows you to return to your normal daily activities immediately.
After treatment it is usual to experience mild-moderate redness, swelling and a tingling/warm sensation. This will subside within 1-3 days.
It is important to note that those who suffer occasional breakouts may experience a slight temporary flare in acne post treatment.
The microdermabrasion process will usually feel slightly abrasive on the skin, however most patients are quite surprised the skin needling process is almost pain free! The skin may just feel slightly sensitive and dry for 1-3 days post treatment.
For best results we recommend a course of up to 6 treatments on a monthly basis. This may be followed thereafter by maintenance visits.
We recommend avoiding the use of any exfoliative skin care products for 3 days pre and 3 days post treatment, such as retinol, lactic acid, glycolic acid etc. Whilst undergoing a course of DermaFrac treatments it is important to use sun protection on a daily basis, and avoid sun baking/solariums. For optimal results we recommend you follow a daily skin care regime alongside your course of treatments. Your skin therapist can tailor a skin care treatment plan to suit your individual needs.
