What is a Dermafile Procedure/Treatment
If you’ve been considering microdermabrasion to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce age spots and freshen up your complexion, you may be a good candidate for another skin resurfacing procedure known as the Dermafile. The Dermafile procedure also removes the top layer of dead skin cells like the conventional microdermabrasion procedure, but this process will lightly polish the skin with the help of finely crushed diamonds on the application wand. Here’s a close look at how the Dermafile procedure works, and some of its top skin rejuvenation benefits:
How the Dermafile Procedure Works
The Dermafile procedure is administered in the same way as a microdermabrasion treatment and slowly removes the top layer of skin cells with a resurfacing wand. The wand may be passed over the skin several times to ensure that every layer is removed evenly, and the aesthetician or physician may choose to concentrate on a particular area that has a high level of skin pigmentation or skin irregularities.
The Dermafile treatment also polishes the skin, leaving it soft and velvety smooth immediately after the treatment. The person administering the treatment can control which level of the epidermis needs to be removed, and also choose the diamond grit size – fine, medium, coarse or extra coarse – depending on what your skin needs. A chemical peel or other topical solution may be applied to enhance results. The entire procedure takes less than an hour.
Since the skin will remain pink and tender for at least 48 hours after the procedure, it’s important to stay out of direct sunlight and to apply a potent sunscreen at regular intervals throughout the day.
Key Benefits of the Dermafile Skin Rejuvenation Procedure
Dermafile treatments can be combined with light chemical peels and even Intense Pulsed Light treatments to further enhance results. It is considered to be safe on all areas of the body, and the technician may choose to use a more coarse grit size to polish the knees, hands, elbows or feet. Ultimately, the Dermafile skin rejuvenation procedure is well-suited for getting rid of stretch marks, redding fine lines and wrinkles, getting rid of acne scars and reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.
Some of the other key benefits of the Dermafile procedure include:
- Can be used on all skin types
- Good for people with 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.
