Is dermalinfusion the right skincare treatment for you? Whether you want smooth, youthful skin or have acne or eczema damage, this cosmetic procedure can change the look and feel of your face. If you’re not sure whether dermalinfusion will meet your cosmetic needs or you just want to learn more about this treatment option, take a look at the top questions about this procedure answered.

Is Dermalinfusion the Same As Exfoliation?

The answer to this question is no — and yes. Before you can fully understand what exfoliation and dermalinfusion have in common, you may need to learn more about the procedure itself. Dermalinfusion is a non-invasive (non-surgical) cosmetic treatment used to enhance the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, chest, or even arms.

Exfoliation is also a non-invasive process. Unlike dermalinfusion, which is a service that doctors and other licensed medical practitioners provide in medical spas and similar settings, exfoliation is a treatment you can try at home. An exfoliation treatment (at home or at a spa) removes the top layer of dead skin cells by physically stripping the surface with a chemical, tool, or scrub.

A dermalinfusion procedure includes exfoliation — but it doesn’t stop there. This cosmetic treatment has three steps. The first is exfoliation. Instead of the loofah or grainy scrub you would use at home to exfoliate, dermalinfusion requires the use of a diamond-tipped wand. The wand is adjustable, making it possible for the practitioner to set a coarseness level that matches your skin’s individual needs. This isn’t possible with a general exfoliating scrub or loofah-like tool.

How Does Dermalinfusion Go Beyond Exfoliation?

Now that you know dermalinfusion includes exfoliation, you may wonder what else the procedure does or offers. The diamond-tipped wand does more than just remove dead skin cells (exfoliate) from your skin. It also vacuums up the remaining debris and, as the name implies, infuses your skin with a customizable type of facial (or body) serum.

What Type of Serum Does Dermalinfusion Use?

There isn’t one universal type of serum that everyone uses for this cosmetic procedure. Instead, the practitioner will match the serum to your skin’s needs. Before you start the three-in-one procedure, the provider will discuss your cosmetic goals. These could include anything from treating the results of a skin condition (such as eczema) to reducing fine lines. Common serum types and uses include hydrating, brightening, anti-aging, and clarifying.

The specific serum ingredients depend on the medical spa and the available products. Popular or notable ingredients you may find in serums used for this type of treatment include vitamin C, vitamin E, grape seed extract, and salicylic acid.

Why Try This Type of Cosmetic Treatment?

The obvious answer is to improve the look and feel of your skin. But dermalinfusion isn’t the only cosmetic treatment that can reveal a brighter, fuller, or younger-looking facial area. This means you will need to decide whether the pros of this procedure outweigh the benefits of other similar medical spa options.

The primary benefits of dermalinfusion include short treatment time, no downtime, and immediate results. Some cosmetic treatments take hours or multiple sessions to complete. Most dermalinfusion procedures are done in under one hour. You should see or feel noticeable results after the treatment—and you won’t need to worry about hiding your face as you recover. Along with these benefits, the ability to customize the exfoliation and the serum to match your skin type can make this a personalized option that meets your cosmetic needs.

Who Chooses Dermalinfusion?

You want brighter, smoother skin. But you’re still not sure if you’re the right candidate for a dermalinfusion treatment. There isn’t one right reason to choose this type of cosmetic option. Some people choose dermalinfusion simply to add a fresh glow to their face (or other body areas), while others have a specific cosmetic need.

A dermalinfusion treatment can temporarily correct hyperpigmentation, smooth acne scars, reduce dark spots, unclog pores, and possibly even minimize the aesthetic effects of rosacea.

Does Dermalinfusion Hurt?

No, this procedure should not cause discomfort. Again, dermalinfusion is a non-invasive skincare treatment. As a non-invasive procedure, you won’t have the pain or sutures (stitches) that cosmetic surgery would require.

Are the Results Long-Lasting?

As a non-surgical cosmetic treatment, dermalinfusion will not give you permanent or long-lasting results. While a difference in your skin tone, fullness, clarity, or brightness should appear immediately after the treatment, this will fade over the next few days. To see a more permanent change in discoloration or other similar skin issues, you will need additional treatments or a combination of dermalinfusion and other topical cosmetic products. To learn more about the results that you can expect from the treatment and the number of procedures you may need, talk to a licensed cosmetic/medical provider.
