What is Dermafrac?
Dermafrac is an advanced micro-needling and infusion treatment with minimal down-time. It is a much milder form of other skin needling techniques which you may be familiar with. A series of single-use only, disposable superfine needles are gently rolled onto the skin in order to stimulate a natural, organic process of wound healing which acts to enhance collagen formation and rejuvenate the skin. As tiny micro-channels are created in your skin, Dermafrac simultaneously infuses potent serums directly into the skin where they achieve their greatest effect. Dermafrac is often combined with a microdermabrasion and a Photo-LED Treatment. This full treatment would be expected to take around forty-five minutes. It is truly a lunchtime procedure!
What conditions can be treated with Dermafrac?
Dermafrac can be used to improve general skin tone and texture, as well as more targeted conditions including sun-damage, scarring (including acne scars, surgical scars and caesarean scars), skin pigmentation (freckles, “spots”, and dark circles under the eyes), as well as fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing. If you have any questions regarding treatment with Dermafrac, the team at Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine will be happy to discuss your suitability for treatment during your initial assessment.
What infusions are available during a Dermafrac treatment?
Depending on your skin-type and your treatment goals, various serums are able to be infused directly into your skin during the micro needling treatment. These include hydrating serums, growth factors, lightening serums for areas of pigmentation (including dark circles under the eyes) and vitamin serums. Unlike other treatments, where the serums are merely placed on the surface of the skin, Dermafrac micro-needling allows infusion of serums directly into the skin, where they have maximum effect.
What does treatment with Dermafrac feel like?
Everyone has different experiences, however treatment with Dermafrac is rapid, discomfort is minimal, and the treatment is generally very well tolerated. The highly trained staff at Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine can adjust the treatment if you find that you are becoming too uncomfortable.
Is there any downtime after treatment with Dermafrac?
Treatment with Dermafrac typically has a very short down-time, and most people find that they are able to return to work or their regular activities immediately. You may notice some slight warmth and redness, but this typically disappears after a few hours, and is usually able to be disguised underneath the post-treatment skin products that your dermal therapist will apply. A full treatment would be expected to take around forty-five minutes. It is truly a lunchtime procedure!
Is my skin type suitable for treatment with Dermafrac?
Some sensitive skin types may not tolerate all components of a Dermafrac treatment well, and a different, gentler treatment may be indicated for you. However, there are multiple components to a full Dermafrac treatment, and you may find that you are able to tolerate a modified procedure. Please discuss your treatment goals and any skin sensitivities with our highly trained staff during your initial consultation, and we can tailor a treatment plan for you.
How many treatments are required?
Different skin conditions and different skin types respond differently to treatment with Dermafrac. Many patients will begin to experience the Dermafrac difference after only one treatment, although for the maximum results as many as four to six treatments may be required two to four weeks apart. Your highly trained clinician will discuss your likely treatment course and cost during your initial assessment.
Can treatment with Dermafrac be combined with other treatments?
Treatment with Dermafrac may be performed alone, or may be combined with other treatments such as microdermabrasion and Photo-LED Therapy, which may accelerate the healing and rejuvenation process and lead to faster, longer lasting results. A series of Dermafrac treatments, in conjunction with Laser Genesis, microdermabrasion or chemical peels and occurring over a period of weeks or months, may be recommended by your dermal therapist.

How much does treatment with Dermafrac cost?
Different skin conditions and different skin types respond differently to treatment with Dermafrac. Many patients will begin to experience the Dermafrac difference after only one treatment, although for the maximum results as many as four to six treatments may be recommended. The cost of Dermafrac treatment also depends on the serums that you choose to have infused into your skin during the micro-needling treatment, and number of treatment components you cost to undergo. Your highly trained clinician will discuss your likely treatment course and cost during your initial assessment.

I have a medical condition.
Can I still have a treatment?
Dermafrac is a very safe treatment. However, if you have an existing or poorly controlled medical condition it may be safer to postpone your treatment. Our highly trained staff will discuss your suitability for treatment during your initial assessment.
