Dermafrac

Great skin is personal. To get it, you need to identify your skin type, pinpoint your concerns, find products that work for you and keep up with a daily skincare routine. It requires patience, dedication and willingness to experiment. If you’re committed to caring for your skin, you’ve probably wished for a simpler solution. Dermafrac is an advanced approach to skin care that combines microdermabrasion and microneedling with a simultaneous infusion of serums for comprehensive rejuvenation. Results can be seen instantly, and there is no downtime or need for anaesthetic.

WHAT IS DERMAFRAC?

Dermafrac makes it easy to address many of your skin’s most important needs with a single, powerful treatment. In a traditional microneedling treatment, a device containing multiple fine needles is used to create micro-injuries in the skin. The body responds to these tiny wounds by initiating a healing response that stimulates collagen production and cellular renewal. Microneedling can address a variety of skin concerns without significant discomfort or downtime.

Dermafrac builds on the benefits of traditional microneedling by combining it with microdermabrasion (a noninvasive exfoliating procedure) and the infusion of targeted serums at the optimal depth in the skin for maximum absorption and effect. By combining these three modalities, Dermafrac boosts the impact of the needling treatment and delivers better results than each individual treatment could achieve on its own.

BENEFITS OF MICRODERMABRASION

  • Exfoliation of dry, dull skin
  • Stimulation of skin circulation
  • Improvement of subtle skin imperfections
  • Skin rejuvenation

BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING

  • Enhanced collagen and elastin production
  • Deeper penetration of customised serums

BENEFITS OF CUSTOMISED SERUMS

REJUVENATING

  • Infusion of five active ingredients that stimulate fibroblast and collagen production in the skin
  • Growth factor serum – stimulates cellular growth, proliferation, healing and cellular differentiation

HYDRATING

  • Key ingredients help skin cells bind to water molecules for long-lasting hydration
  • Vitamin E for UV resistance
  • Vitamin A to accelerate cell turnover
  • Antioxidants including green tea, white tea and grape seed to calm the skin

LIGHTENING

  • Infusion of kojic acid to even out pigmentation and brighten the skin
  • Kojic acid also has antibacterial and antifungal properties

CLARIFYING

  • Infusion of salicylic acid (a beta hydroxy acid) opens clogged pores and neutralises acne-causing bacteria resulting in a reduction in acne
  • Lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) exfoliates the outer layer of skin and increases collagen production to minimise fine lines and wrinkles and reduce blackheads and whiteheads

VITAMIN C

  • Infusion of 2 percent ethyl ascorbic acid to target free radical damage
  • Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that slows the rate of free radical damage that contributes to loss of collagen, skin dryness and wrinkles

DERMAFRAC IS CLINICALLY USEFUL FOR:

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Dermafrac uses a vacuum roller containing 180 sterile microneedles to stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration. As the handpiece is moved across the skin’s surface, the skin is pulled into contact with the microneedles using gentle suction. This creates tension on the skin that minimises discomfort and ensures every area of the skin comes into contact with the needles. The infusion portion of the treatment takes place simultaneously. As the microneedles create small channels in the skin, the serum is released and travels through the channels to the depth where it is needed most. The result is plumper, smoother, firmer skin with fewer blemishes and a “lit-from-within” clarity.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?

The beauty of this three-in-one treatment is that it is totally customised to your concerns and skincare goals. The first step involves a consultation to personalise a treatment protocol that is suitable for your skin condition and concerns. We will recommend the best serum for you based on this evaluation. Once your unique needs are understood, your skin will be cleansed and primed. Microdermabrasion is performed first to remove the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells. The microneedling and infusion step follows. The needles enter the skin at the precise depth necessary for the amount of correction desired, while the serum travels simultaneously into the deeper dermal layers. A Dermafrac procedure usually takes less than one hour to complete.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?

There is no downtime following a Dermafrac treatment. You can expect to resume your regular activities immediately after your appointment. Some patients initially experience mild facial redness that can be camouflaged with makeup (ideally a breathable mineral formula). Your skin may be more sensitive in the days following a Dermafrac treatment. Choose your skincare products and cosmetics wisely, and make sure you use sun protection whenever you’re outside. We can help you design a skincare routine that suits your individual needs and enhances the results of your Dermafrac treatments.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT RESULTS AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?

Dermafrac produces both immediate and gradual benefits. You can expect to leave our North Melbourne office with plumper skin, improved texture and an enviable radiance after your first treatment. Over time, as the procedure stimulates collagen production and cell renewal, your results will continue to improve. Long-term benefits may include a reduction in wrinkles or scarring, fading of irregular pigmentation and improvement in skin laxity.

We recommend starting with a series of six Dermafrac treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. If you are interested in using Dermafrac to rejuvenate your skin before a big event, we suggest scheduling your series so that the final session concludes two weeks before the occasion. Periodic touch-up treatments will help you maintain your results over the long term once the initial series is complete.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS?

Dermafrac involves minimal risks. Side effects outside of mild redness after treatment are rare and will be discussed in your consultation. In general, Dermafrac is a gentle treatment that most individuals can have, regardless of their Fitzpatrick skin type or skin sensitivity. Patients who take specific medications, have certain skin conditions or medical conditions, or have recently had certain procedures may not be suitable candidates for this treatment. Dr Parvin Khinda will assess the condition of your skin to determine whether Dermafrac might be the safest and most effective choice for your needs.

CAN I COMBINE DERMAFRAC WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?

Dermafrac is available as a stand-alone treatment and in combination with other procedures to help you meet all your cosmetic goals. While the results of this three-in-one treatment can be stunning on their own, combining Dermafrac with other skin rejuvenation treatments can yield an even more dramatic outcome. We offer a full menu of nonsurgical treatments at Kaya Cosmedica. A popular choice is Omnilux, an LED treatment that uses three light wavelengths to address a range of skin concerns. Your personalised and comprehensive skin rejuvenation plan may also include anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers or facial peels.

HOW DO I CHOOSE A DERMAFRAC PROVIDER?

As needling continues to gain popularity as a skin care essential, a number of at-home devices have been introduced as alternatives to in-office microneedling treatments. While both work similarly, at-home needling devices cannot achieve the same results as professional microneedling. Microneedling devices that can be purchased for personal use contain shorter needles that cannot reach the layer of skin that’s most helpful in growing fresh collagen. Skin needling at home also increases the risks of over-treatment or infection from improperly cleaned tools.

By choosing a professional microneedling treatment at Kaya Cosmedica, 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 medical professional is a safer, deeper and more effective treatment.
