If you’ve ever considered or have experience with microdermabrasion to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and/or to freshen up your complexion, there is new innovative technique for skin rejuvenation called Dermafile that is quickly becoming a popular alternative to traditional microdermabrasion.
A Dermafile treatment uses finely crushed diamonds to micro-polish the skin and remove the top layer of dead skin cells, like a conventional microdermabrasion procedure, but without the abrasiveness and potential damage to thin or delicate skin due to the traditional machines that use suction.
Using a resurfacing wand, Dermafile slowly removes the top layer of skin cells. The wand may be passed over the skin several times to ensure that every layer is removed evenly, and your esthetician can even choose to concentrate on a particular area that has a high level of skin pigmentation or skin irregularities, while polishing the entire face.
Polishing the skin leaves it soft and velvety smooth immediately after the treatment and reveals a new youthful glow. An enzyme or chemical peel may be applied to enhance results and the entire procedure takes less than an hour. It’s the perfect complement to enhance exfoliation benefits and smooth and rejuvenate the complexion.
* Can be used on all skin types, including sensitive skin.
* No side effects.
* No downtime.
* Immediate results.
* No anesthetic required because there is little to no discomfort.
* Can be performed over lunch hour.
* Post-treatment care plan is simple and affordable.
* Skin will heal completely within 72 hours after treatment.
* The procedure can be performed once per month to enhance results and promote rapid skin cell regeneration. Over time, the skin will begin to produce more collagen and appear more youthful, toned and soft.
How do I know Dermafile is right for me?
A Dermafile treatment has advantages over other microdermabrasion processes. The diamond treatment serves to gently and carefully remove the outermost layer of skin, with less damage and aftercare than other microdermabrasion procedures on the market (that often use coarse materials akin to sandpaper or sand blasting the skin).
How long does it take?
The entire Dermafile Facial procedure takes no more than an hour to perform, and is relatively painless. Often there is no need for topical anesthetics to be administered prior to a session. Clients can combine the Dermafile facial with other treatments for optimal results.
Your esthetician may use a Dermafile to enhance exfoliation during an enzyme facial or can also apply a chemical peel after your treatment to further enhance the results, as this peel will have a fresh layer of skin to be placed on.
Dermafile is ideal for anyone who has a trouble area of skin they would like to be smoother, and works well for those looking to eliminate unwanted facial lines, age spots, sun damage, wrinkles, or scarring. There are no known side effects and no prolonged downtime after the treatment. There is a small window of heightened skin sensitivity after your treatment, typically lasting no longer than 48 hours, and a broad spectrum sunscreen is recommended.
