The Derma Firm Illuminator (or more easily pronounced as the DFI) is Apriori Beauty’s at home skincare machine. And what it does is make your skin (Derma) look firmer (Firm) and brighter (Illuminator)…. get it- the Derma…Firm…Illuminator. Or just go with DFI.
The reason why this little machine is so rad is because it combines four different technologies into one gadget that takes 10 minutes to use. I personally use mine at least 3 or 4 times a week while I’m watching Netflix, or reading a book or looking at the glow-in-the-dark stars on my bedroom ceiling. (Yes, I actually have those on my ceiling and yes they’re still very fun even at 29).
The DFI uses some of the same technologies that your Esthetician is using during your facial treatments including Galvanic Ion therapy, Far Infrared, Vibration Therapy and Ultrasound Wave Therapy. For inquiring minds who want to know what the big deal is about these four different technologies I’ll list a few highlights for you.
Galvanic Ion Therapy- without getting to0 technical I’ll just share that this technology extracts impurities and pushes nutrients from the Precision Skin Rejuvenator deeper into the skin. Your Estheticain may have a Galvanic Machine in her treatment room or you can buy your own for several hundred dollars ( but it won’t have the other three therapies the DFI provides).
Far Infrared (FIR) – this may sound like a Cold War weapon referenced in Rocky 4 but in fact it’s a beneficial type of light that warms the skin, unclogging pores and increases blood flow that helps eleminate toxins. It also promotes the regeneration of skin tissue and increases blood flow to the skin.
Ultrasound Wave Therapy- this therapy generates sound waves which vibrate at about 5 million vibrations per second… which then raises the temprature of the skin. As a result, pores are opened so that impurites are removed and elastin and collagen production increase.
Vibration Therapy- this technology relaxes the facial muscles and activates the skin’s natural healing properties. Elastin and Collagen are also strengthened.
There are actually even more benefits to list for each of the four technologies and if you’re super interested in learning about all of them- contact me via email and I can send along a handout with more in-depth information.
As always I’m totally about you continuing to go see your trusted skincare professional for facials and facial treatments but if you’re only in her office once a month or every six weeks, the DFI is an awesome way to take excellent care of your skin on a weekly basis.
