Bouncy, poreless, blemish-free, radiant skin is the ultimate goal—especially before you start snapping all those wedding photos. Sounds like a tall order, right? What if we told you there’s a new skincare treatment that promises all that and more? Well, your first question would probably be “are you for real?” to which we’d reply “yes.” Then, thoughts of snake oil salesmen (old timey reference, look it up) and too-good-to-be-true quick fixes would pop into your head. Rest assured that’s not the case with Dermalinfusion.

What is Dermalinfusion?

Dermalinfusion is a three-in-one skincare treatment that simultaneously exfoliates, extracts impurities, and infuses skin with serums to address specific concerns—whether that’s congestion, dryness, fine lines, or sun damage. Basically, it’s microdermabrasion on steroids.

How does it work?

Without getting into too much medical jargon, the technology takes place in the handpiece. “It glides across the face and uses pneumatic force (vacuum suction) to lift the skin to meet the recessed diamond tip, which abrades the top layer,” explains Katelyn Rusin, owner and aesthetician at Glow Skin Studio. “While this is happening, dead cells, dirt, and debris are removed as the targeted serums are surged deep into the dermis.”

Who is a good candidate?

Dermalinfusion is good for all skin types. There are a variety of diamond tips with different levels of abrasion, from mild to more coarse, so even the most sensitive complexions can reap the rewards, according to Rusin.

What are the benefits?

Speaking of, there are perks aplenty! Instant benefits (we’re talking after one session) include improvement in tone, texture, hydration, and radiance. Dermalinfusion is also great for tackling conditions like hyperpigmentation and acne, and for those who wish to smooth fine lines.

What should you expect afterwards?

There’s no downtime! Immediately after treatment, skin will feel really clean and supple. Chances are you’ll appear a tad bit flushed. (That’s due to vacuum pressure, which creates mild erythema.) No need to worry; redness typically dissipates within 30 minutes. And you can apply makeup as soon as the session is over. In fact, Dermalinfusion creates a super smooth canvas, so your foundation will look extra fab. Hence why it’s so popular before big events (ahem, weddings).

How much does it cost?

A standalone Dermalinfusion treatment, which typically takes 25 to 30 minutes, costs $175 on average. Keep in mind that prices vary depending on location, facility, and any add-ons (such as extractions).

How many treatments are recommended?

While you’ll notice a difference after the first treatment, for best results leading up to your big day, Rusin recommends a series of four to six sessions, scheduled every two or three weeks.
