Many women have concluded that the only non-surgical answer to an unflattering neck & décolleté is to sport turtle-necks and scarves year-round. While covering up does have the benefit of protecting against the sun’s harmful rays, it isn’t going to change the skin you’re in. The solution? See an esthetician. Medical spas likeInstitut DERMedoffer a variety of treatments specifically designed to reverse unsightly skin damage and signs of aging. In this series, we will highlight the5 best corrective treatmentsavailable for the neck & décolleté (and face, too).

1. Dermafrac: Dermal Needling

How does it work?

The precision controlled Dermafrac handpiece uses vacuum to pull the skin into contact with hundreds of micro-needles. These micro needles create pathways for the infusion of targeted serums by penetrating the epidermis above capillaries and nerve endings, ensuring no bleeding or pain. The procedure results in optimal absorption of the serum (80% more than topical application alone) and stimulates a positive natural response by the body to increase collagen and fibroblast activity. It is important to know that anti-aging treatments must stimulate collagen to produce, in order to make skin look plump and smooth again. This increased collagen production also increases cell turnover allowing the skin to flush out damaged, hyperpigmented skin cells leaving healthy cells to flourish. At the same time, Dermafrac treatments help to restore and regulate melanocyte function to ensure an even skin color and tone.

What conditions does it treat?

Dermafrac is safe and effective for many skin types and has been shown to improve conditions such as: acne, scars, stretch marks, skin dehydration, superficial fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, sun spots and uneven skin tone. Your treatment will be individualized by the selection of a Dermafrac Serum to target your specific condition.


    • Anti-Aging: A super cocktail of peptides.


    • Acne: Lactic and Salicylic acids have the ability to treat and control acne outbreaks.


    • Hydration: Hyaluronic acid triggers intense hydration.


  • Lightening: Kojic acid is a natural and effective lightening agent shown to even out pigment.


Will it hurt?

Clients tell us that Dermafrac feels wonderful. The precise engineering of the handpiece prevents any pain and instead provides a pleasant client experience with no downtime.


How many treatments will I need?

Dermafrac is typically administered in six treatments every two weeks followed by maintenance visits every one to two months. Your provider will customize a treatment regimen for your unique skin care need
