What Is The Dermafrac Treatment?
The DermaFrac system combines a micro-needling treatment with the deep tissue infusion of skin serums. Specifically, it combines Crystal Free Microdermabrasion, Micro-needling and LED Therapy. There are three different model options of the DermaFrac, all of which are customizable for an individual’s skin and condition and can be combined and used in customized treatment programmes. Crystal Free Microdermabrasion – Uses a specially designed and innovative Bio-Barrier disposable tip that prevents bacterial or viral cross-contamination, meaning that no sterilizing is needed between treatments. Plus, various disposable tips vary in abrasiveness for precise and optimal results.
Once you have your specified treatment plan, the first step will be microdermabrasion of the skin with the Crystal Free Tips, with an abrasion level suited to your skin. The second step is micro-needling under the vacuum, which draws the skin against the fine needles that gently puncture the skin. The selected serum is simultaneously delivered through the microchannels into the deeper layers of the skin. The third and final step is LED light therapy, which uses Coolbreeze technology to keep the skin comfortable with the flow of cool air. The light wave chosen depends on your skin condition and operates at a higher energy for a quicker treatment. Treatment typically takes 15 minutes instead of 60 minutes for roller micro-needling, as DermaFrac requires no topical anaesthetic.
The DermaFrac system has been specifically designed to deliver topical solutions and serums to the dermal-epidermal junction through microchannels. It benefits other micro-needling systems that require the serums to be applied to the skin before treatment and then forced into the skin with the needles.
The DermaFrac uses a precise handpiece with a vacuum that pulls the skin into contact with hundreds of micro-needles. These needles create microchannels for the infusion of specific serums. It means optimal serum absorption stimulates the skin’s healing response, which may improve collagen production and fibroblast activity to renew the skin cells. There are four main types of DermaFrac serum, each designed to target a specific condition:
• Hydrate – Contains hyaluronic acid to trigger intense hydration of the skin. The patented HylaSponge formulation helps to deliver high levels of water to the deeper layers of the skin. It may result in the improvement of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as smoothing the skin. Hydrate also contains Vitamin A, an antioxidant that can promote new skin growth.
• Rejuvenate – Features five active ingredients that have been shown to have the potential to promote collagen and fibroblast production. This cocktail can also lead to the release of neurotransmitters that temporarily relax muscles in the skin.
• Clarify – Contains salicylic and lactic acids, which help to clear and cleanse blocked oily pores and kill bacteria for clear and fresh skin.
• Lighten – Has the active ingredient Kojic acid, which evens out pigmentation marks by lightening the skin. It also has antibacterial and antifungal action.
• Growth Factor – A new addition recently introduced to deliver a Growth Factor Rejuvenation Complex (GF-R) in conjunction with a rich blend of moisturisers, peptides and vitamins to repair ageing skin and sun damage at the cellular level. Three differing serums carry the growth factors that can be used for treatment. GF-R is made using transformed bacteria and 100% homologous human protein (i.e. similar to our own), meaning that there will be no adverse reactions from topical application. All the serums are water-based and therefore are less likely to form granulomas or lumps, which can occur with skin care products not specifically designed to be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin.
The DermaFrac system can be used to treat a vast number of skin complaints and imperfections, including improving:
|The appearance of fine and wrinkles.||UV damage to the skin.|
|Pigmentation marks, including brown spots, uneven skin tone, and mild acne scarring.||Active acne outbreaks.|
|Scars and stretch marks||Ageing skin, making it look more youthful by improving epidermal density and strength.|
|General skin health and dehydration.|

How Long Does It Last?
To get the optimal results from treatment, DermaFrac is usually recommended to be carried out for six treatments, with one every two weeks. Then top-up treatments will need to be carried out every two months. Your practitioner can customise your treatment plan for your specific needs perfectly.
Side Effects And Risks
The micro-needles for the DermaFrac handpiece come in two sizes or lengths, 0.25mm or 0.5mm, which penetrate the skin above the capillaries (blood vessels) and nerve endings. It means that there will be no bleeding and should be no pain, and therefore no actual downtime. You can apply your make-up straight after the procedure. There will be some redness immediately following treatment, with the microdermabrasion and micro-needling, but it will fade relatively quickly. You may receive an aftercare programme to take home with you, including appropriate skincare products.
Not To Be Used In
Unlike some rejuvenating treatment methods, DermaFrac is safe and suitable for all skin types and addresses the most common skin complaints and conditions. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their general practitioner before proceeding with any aesthetic procedure, and they will usually be advised to wait until after this period.
