Since your skin is the literal canvas upon which any procedure rests, skincare has always been a huge part of our practice here at the Boston Center for Facial Aging. As board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Doherty and I know from experience that attaining that “wow” result can only happen when a skilled surgeon starts with a beautiful canvas. Think about it. We can lift your skin up into a natural looking, more youthful position. But if your cheeks are mottled with brown spots and your skin is crepe looking, the end result is not going to be as fantastic as anyone would like. This is why our entire team, including our aestheticians, are so excited to introduce a brand new, cutting edge treatment called the DermaFrac™ C.
is DermaFrac™ C?
DermaFrac™ C is a handheld
microneedling device that simultaneously infuses the skin with a customized, scientifically formulated solution to address your skin’s specific needs. It looks a bit like an oversized highlighter with a pinwheel of evenly spaced microneedles on the end. During your procedure, we roll the device over the skin in the treatment area. The microneedles safely create open channels into the skin. This allows the customized solution to penetrate into the deeper layers of your dermis where they can be even more effective than when applied topically. The end result is smoother, plumper, glowing skin. Benefits
of DermaFrac™ C
the depth that the needles penetrate is shallow, there is absolutely no
downtime or pain associated with a DermaFrac™ C procedure. You may experience
some mild redness in certain areas, but this fades quickly — typically within
an hour. One of the things that we love about DermaFrac™ C is that patients can
have a treatment and immediately carry on with their day. It’s an ideal
alternative for anyone who doesn’t have the time for the downtime associated
with fractional lasers or chemical peels. Furthermore, DermaFrac™ C works on
all skin types.

the biggest benefit of DermaFrac™ C is that we can customize the solution to
your skin’s individual needs. There are six different scientifically formulated
options. These include:
Clarify Rejuvenate Hydrate Growth Factors Lighten Vitamin C Clarify
Solution Ideal for Patients with Acne
is not just for teenagers. Many women develop adult acne in their 30’s and/or
during menopause. Not only is cystic acne unsightly, but it often leaves behind
a scar. A DermFrac™ C treatment with the Clarify solution can help keep your
acne in check. It contains both salicylic acid to open up clogged pores and get
rid of bacteria as well as lactic acid for outer skin exfoliation. This 1-2
combination also helps to reduce blackheads, whiteheads and increase collagen
production so that any fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable.
Furthermore, microneedling helps to break down scar tissue and promote healing.
Solution Helps Plump Dry Skin
do not need to live in the dessert to suffer from dry skin. Starting as early
as your 20’s, your skin begins to lose both collagen and elastin. Collagen not
only acts like a support structure for your skin, but it also provides
plumpness. And as we all know, plump looking skin is youthful looking skin. A
DermaFrac™ C treatment with the Hydrate solution can help combat the early
signs of skin aging such as fine lines and wrinkles by restoring moisture.
Chock full of hyaluronic acid for intense hydration, it also contains Vitamin A
to promote cell turnover, Vitamin E to help combat UV sun damage as well as
antioxidants like green tea, white tea and grape seed.
your Skin with DermaFrac™ C
The Rejuvenate solution contains five active ingredients that work to stimulate fibroblast and collagen production in your skin. As already discussed, more collagen in the skin is akin to drinking from the fountain of youth. This solution, in combination with the microneedles, has also been proven to relax your muscles which can, like
Botox, prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.
other three solutions address more specific needs. Lighten contains Kojic acid
which suppresses melanocyte activity and diminishes areas of pigmentation such
as sun spots. Vitamin C is a 2% Ethyl Ascorbic Acid solution that slows the
rate of free radical damage while the Growth Factors solution turbocharges cell
turnover and healing while providing moisture and peptides to help repair the
effects of both age and sun damage.
administered as 6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart, the end result of your
DermaFrac™ C procedure is significantly improved skin tone and texture without
any pain or downtime. In our opinion, this makes DermaFrac™ C a game changer.
