What is DermaSound?
Blemishes can build up on the surface of the skin, resulting in a dull complexion with lines, scars, and spots. At Xage Medical Spa, DermaSound treatments take off the damaged and dead skin cells from the top layers of your complexion, revealing a younger look with clearer, even skin that feels soft and smooth. As a noninvasive facial procedure, DermaSound utilizes water and radiofrequency that helps to loosen and remove dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. Board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter in Provo, UT may recommend a DermaSound facial if you would like a noninvasive treatment that takes on your signs of aging and boosts your skin's health. Made to even the tone and texture of your complexion, DermaSound may be a great option to refresh your skin.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Do I need a dermasound facial?
DermaSound facial treatments are a great choice for patients of all ages who want healthier, clearer skin. DermaSound can minimize the appearance of fine lines, small facial scars, blotches, and spots on your skin. Since DermaSound sloughs off the damaged outer layers, your face will feel smoother while also looking brighter and more balanced. Most patients find that after DermaSound treatments, their skin care products sink in more quickly and work better. If you have sensitive skin, skin allergies, or chronic cold sores and fever blisters, this procedure may not be appropriate. It is also important to know that DermaSound shouldn't be performed if you have active acne to avoid an infection. Dermabrasion may be done on the whole face or a small area, as well as the neck, chest, and hands. Dermabrasion treatments can also be performed along with other services offered at Xage Medical Spa, like an injectable treatment or chemical peel, for greater improvements.
Our Dermasound Technique
After a consultation, DermaSound treatments will be performed in our private rooms. You will be able to lie back as your skin is cleansed and prepped before the treatment begins. As a three-step system, DermaSound works to remove dead skin cells. During the first step, water oscillation is used to loosen and get rid of the dead skin. Next, ultrasound radiofrequency is utilized to formulate pathways within the layers of the skin, which helps skin care products to better sink into the skin. For the last step, micro-current therapy works to stimulate cell function, increase elastin, and allow for healing in the skin. You will be able to leave right after the DermaSound treatment to continue your regular schedule.
What to Expect with DermaSound™
Following a DermaSound treatment, your skin may be irritated, red, and swollen similar to a light sunburn, but this may be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medications and creams as you heal over the next week. You should avoid exposure to the sun and regularly apply sunscreen because the fresh skin that is exposed by the DermaSound treatment will be sensitive. Most people will notice visibly clearer skin that is smoother to touch — this will only improve as the skin begins to heal. To extend your results, talk to our aesthetics team about how frequently you should have DermaSound treatments and other services based on your cosmetic goals.
