Derma Frac – A Memory of The Sun

Derma Frac – A Memory of The SunLike0

After my long vacation in the Maldives, I came back to Dubai with possibly the tan of the century. Everyone complimented my golden color tan, which generally, women spend all their precious money on tanning salon and never able to reach that ultimate color. But with time, that golden color did end up fading and all I was left with were sun pigmentation scars.

You see, Maldives, being so close to the equator, has one of the strongest sun rays. I had SPF 50 wiped all over my face, but apparently, not enough. I’ve always had that problem anyway! You could spot me a mile away, I would be that proud but not so proud looking chica covered with a large hat, masked in white SPF all over my face.

This is not my usual travel post, but after I realized that many of you were asking the question on the ways I keep my skin fresh after all the traveling, sun exposure, pollution and sleepless night. To be honest, 60 percent is a great camera and fantastic filters on the iPhone, while the other 40 percent is things I eat and face treatments by professionals.

It’s been years since I last did a treatment on my face to remove the pigmentation, last time was at Health Care City in Dubai, (which was awesome) but this time, I opted to try Vein Cure Clinic in JLT with Dr. Sarmad Aji. I seem to always need pigmentation removal. I heard so much about Derma Frac, so I thought, what’s the worse that can happen?

Derma Frac is a more effective than fractional laser or chemical peel treatments, DermaFrac™ offers simultaneous delivery of infused ingredients in a pain-free, no down time treatment that can be administered by aesthetician without anesthesia and at significantly lower cost.

How Does It Work?

The first step in the process of your DermaFrac Treatments is to work with a skin care nurse to determine the proper serum treatment and frequency for the LED therapy. Once you determine these factors, the skin is cleansed and the microdermabrasion is completed to remove the dead layers of skin cells.( It actually feels really good!)

The skin is then cleansed again to ensure all the dead cells are removed. The next step in the process is the micro-needling ( Sounds really worse than it is)  that creates the tiny channels and injects the serum under the dermis layer of the skin at the same time. The LED therapy is used for four to six minutes after the serum is applied. The microneedling process works as follows:

  1. A precision wand is moved across your skin with light pressure. The roller used on the end of this wand is filled with microscopic needles that create the channels. If your skin is broken open, a massage tip that doesn’t contain needles may be used. The wand also has space for a cartridge that contains your chosen serum.
  2. The end of the wand uses vacuum pressure to pull the skin onto the needles. This painlessly creates the channels that extend below the epidermis layer. This process creates tension on the skin so there is no pain. It also ensures the needles enter the skin in a uniform pattern for the best results, especially in the delivery of the serum.
  3. These microchannels promote the proper placement of the serums so they can do their job properly.
  4. The needles are placed at a depth that enters just below the dermis layer but stops before the nerve endings and capillaries to ensure no pain or bleeding

The Serum I used is Lightening Kojic Acid to even out pigment and the procedure usually takes up to 40 minutes in total. I wont tell you my memories of Maldives on my face were gone, you need 4-5 sessions for that, but what I will tell you is that it did fade 25% the next morning. I will keep you posted after my 5th session!

  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
  • Dubai still super hot but nothing a weekend at the pool won’t fix! It’s still summer here with 40 degrees Celsius... What’s the weather like where you are?
  • Counting down for our next @travelwithtjd group adventure trip this October! #TravelwithTJD
It feels like ages ago when @dennisstever and I went sailing in the Arctic in May to experience the midnight sun and I remember it was still a little chilly!! I remember having to change into that red dress for the picture because we thought it was a good idea! 😂 
I can guarantee you that I froze! The white sand and the rocks were undeniably cold and Dennis was having a laugh while taking the picture!! You can even see the ripple effect on the water! 
Have you ever ‘froze’ for a picture? 😊

Thank you @dennisstever for the 📷 and @pukkatravels for the love!
