Collagen is one of the most important molecules for keeping skin looking smooth, healthy, and young. Age-related collagen loss causes wrinkles to form, tissues to sag, and more, all of which can be further hastened by destruction of collagen by sun exposure and other environmental factors. DermaFrac® microneedling at Portland's medispa at The Waldorf Center encourages renewed collagen production, countering the effects of its loss over time.
Each guest at The Waldorf Center's medispa will first consult with an experienced licensed aesthetician. You will be able to explain the look you are seeking and can learn about the various treatment options appropriate for your skin and desired result. This is also the ideal time to learn more about DermaFrac™ microneedling. Your licensed aesthetician can explain the treatment to you in detail and ensure you understand how it works and what it can do to revitalize the skin.
The DermaFrac™ microneedling device works by using a vacuum that gently pulls the skin up to a handpiece with a roller featuring hundreds of tiny needles. Each needle creates a small channel into the upper dermis, penetrating just deep enough to prompt a healing response while avoiding nerve endings and capillaries.

The natural processes that begin to heal what the body reads as multiple "wounds" also serve to improve the quality of the surrounding skin. DermaFrac™ microneedling can address fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, certain scars, and enlarged pores. It can also help to clear whiteheads and blackheads.
The DermaFrac™ microneedling handpiece contains a cartridge filled with a serum for infusing into the newly treated skin. Each channel serves as an opening that allows the specially chosen formula to "soak" in and provide further benefits. Available serums include options to clarify, hydrate, rejuvenate, lighten, thicken, and more.
You will receive specific aftercare instructions from your aesthetician. Following them can help you to maximize the results of your treatment.
Collagen production is gradual, so you will see the skin-improving results of a DermaFrac™ microneedling treatment appear in the weeks following your session. As cells in the skin produce more collagen molecules, the surface will appear smoother, clearer, and healthier.
The spa at The Waldorf Center offers a range of specialty facials that rejuvenate the skin and can treat specific cosmetic concerns, from redness to excess oil. The aestheticians at the spa also perform microdermabrasion, which exfoliates to transform dull skin into glowing skin.
The spa also carries a line of skin care products, each carefully chosen to provide unique and proven benefits. Topical creams can be especially beneficial following a DermaFrac™ microneedling treatment because of the skin's improved absorption ability following the session.
I was displeased with my breast size. We did the 3D Vectra imaging and Dr. Waldorf concluded that 220 or 255cc silicone implants would give me my desired results. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of my surgery ... I was back to normal activity within 1-2 weeks. Overall it was an excellent experience!Learn More
From the very first visit, all my experiences with Dr. Waldorf have been great. I was always self-conscious of my small chest but never as much as after having 2 kids & nursing each of them for 1 year. I had no cleavage at all & finding a swimsuit that could conceal this was very difficult. I went from 32A to 32C which fits my body perfectly & looks very natural. The surgery & my recovery went very smooth & I'm very happy with the result.Learn More
