DermaFrac™ is a unique new microneedling system which 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 which 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.
DermaFrac utilizes vacuum to maintain tension on the skin so that the microneedles penetrate to uniform and proper depth. The micro-channels that the DermaFrac creates provide pathways for the various active solutions – which are pulled across the skin by the vacuum just as the microneedles pass over the skin thus ensuring optimal infusion. The active ingredients are delivered from special cartridges that are loaded in the microneedling handpiece. A choice of solutions are available which infuse anti-aging peptides, skin pigment lighteners, hyaluronic HA moisturizers, acne therapy solutions and more which have been designed to take advantage of the microchannels and which help to rejuvenate the skin in a gentle but effective manner.
