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!

  • Legend says that there is an intangible string of fate that binds two souls destined to be together... Whether as best friends, lovers or two crossing paths.
Those connected are bound no matter of time, place or circumstance.
The red string of fate is derived from an ancient East Asian belief. According to this myth, the Gods tie a red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other or help each other in a certain way.
And so, no matter how near or far you are from the person, the thread remains. 
There will be times when mentally or physically, you feel distant from the person, but that doesn’t affect the thread that binds you two together. 
If you feel that with a lover, friend, or someone you just met... take a minute to remember what you just read and always be kind to one another. 💫
  • She turns 7 and my world upside down and inside out. 
I gave her a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take her years to learn that not everyone loves like she does... and still... she will love. 💫
  • Are you at work or at the beach? 
I’m sitting on my laptop behind my desk at work... but all I want to do is be on the beach 🏖
  • You will always be the one person I’ll never stop looking for in a crowded place 💫
  • It’s been so good to be back to my second home in Dubai and back into routine work life. I know I’m very lucky to be always on the go, traveling and exploring but I crave routines sometimes. It keeps me grounded, a little balanced and back into my yoga practice. So I always try to have a balance of both worlds... even if it’s for a few days until I start craving the adventure again. 
A little bit of the @theitalianwayuae mood in my home this morning.
  • Maybe if I close my eyes strong enough and click my heels three times I could go back! Would that work?? Happy Sunday 😊
  • The Elephant is a symbol of strength, loyalty and power. In other cultures it also symbolizes fortune, protection and honor. 
There are 3 types of elephants: The African bush elephant, African Forest Elephant and the Asian Elephant. Which one do you think this beautiful elephant is from? 
Please don’t ride elephants and don’t support any organization that allows you to ride them 💕
  • If you are a person who is always there for others, know that your heart is rare. 
Know that you have the ability to calm storms in people... know that you give people hope and feel like they have a purpose but, also remind yourself that your heart needs rest...
I just felt like sharing this today...💫
Thank you Bianca 💕
  • I’m craving the sun ☀️ who would you go with? Tag them
  • I’m not going to lie, 2019 is looking pretty damn big!!
That’s the only way I can think of expressing at the moment! 
A lot of changes happening in my professional career and it’s frightening in an extremely exciting way. Does that make any sense! 
Most of all, I’m so proud of what has become of @travelwithtjd and the beautiful team behind it, in which we are slowly building to help make it grow. 
In about month, I go back to Tromso to sail the arctic wilderness once again for the 3rd time, but this time, weather conditions will be even stronger than ever and all this will be covered in white snow!
2019 is opening more doors for conquering the polar regions and new windows for the southern regions. Hope I meet some of you on one of our @travelwithtjd trips!
  • Back in my element. From snowboarding to diving. I’m so in love with both but ready for the beach and warm weather for a little break.
Which do you prefer?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past couple days with mixed emotions... it’s a good reminder on how I need to always fight for what I believe in. 
Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
