A Guide To Dermalinfusion And Its Benefits

December 21, 2020 Blog, Skin Treatments Comments Off on A Guide To Dermalinfusion And Its Benefits

Dermalinfusion, otherwise known as “silkpeel” is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment, and might be one of our favourites! This treatment is fully customizable to treat a variety of skin concerns. We like to refer to dermaliinfusion as the “kicked up” version of microdermabrasion. While most people tend to perform microdermabrasion treatments on their face, dermalinfusion can be performed on almost any area of the body. Interested yet? 

How Dermalinfusion works

It is a 3-in-1 treatment that has been designed to simultaneously:

  • Exfoliate the skin using a diamond tip head
  • Extract debris such as dirt and dead skin cells
  • Infuse the skin with skin condition specific serums

Dermalinfusion uses a patented hand piece in which a diamond-tip is attached. Each diamond-tip varies in “coarseness” which essentially dictates the level of exfoliation it will provide. Your skin care professional will choose which tip is suitable for you, depending on your skin type. The hand piece is then placed on the skin and the vacuum gently pulls the skin up making contact with the diamond-tip. While the diamond-tip exfoliates the skin, the vacuum continues to draw dirt, oils and dead skin up into a waste jar. At the same time, the serum is infusing the skin, penetrating the epidermal-dermal junction, leaving for a fresher look of the skin. 

The kind of serum used depends on the purpose of the treatment. The serum can be designed to treat a variety of different conditions, such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Rosacea
  • Dry skin
  • Sun damage
  • Excess oil production
  • Acne
  • Aging skin
  • Hyperpigmentation

Where on the body Dermalinfusion is used

Dermalinfusion can be performed on any part of the body such as the back, face, hands, neck or upper chest. It may even be used on the breasts or stomach to treat stretch marks, or parts of the body with signs of sun damage, such as legs or arms.

Advantages of Dermalinfusion

Both microdermabrasion and dermalinfusion treatments are processes based on exfolation, however dermalinfusion is known to have quite a few different benefits that microdermabrasion might not offer. 

Considering the fact that the diamond-tipped heads are interchangeable, the dermalinfusion is a gentle option over crystal microdermabrasion, which can be irritating to those with rosacea or sensitive skin. As previously mentioned, dermalinfusion can, however, be used on those with rosacea or acne. There is even a customized brush head for use on those with active acne. One of the greatest advantages and our favourite parts of dermalifusion is that the procedure can be done on sensitive areas of the face, such as the lips and eyes. 

A dermalinfusion treatment takes approximately thirty minutes and has no downtime, making it a perfect “lunchtime” procedure. 

  • Acne Scars & Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation refers to any condition that results in patches or dark spots on the skin. A few common causes include:

  • Inflammation of the skin
  • Acne
  • Sun exposure
  • Hormonal changes

Dermalinfusion may even help treat acne scars. Progress may be noticed in as little as four sessions of the treatment. Usually, though, more than six sessions are required to attain noticeable results.

  • Rosacea

Affecting 45 million people worldwide, Rosacea is a pretty common skin condition, which causes redness and produces red pus-filled bumps. Although gentle on the skin, dermalinfusion has the power to correct rosacea by infusing the skin with the vitamins it needs.  

  • Other Advantages

Although there is a limited amount of research thus far on the advantages of dermalinfusion, it has been found to:

  • Improve skin texture
  • Volumize skin by 70%
  • Clear out pores
  • Reduce dark spots
  • Brighten complexion
  • Even out skin tone
  • Decrease wrinkles
  • Reduce breakouts

With all things considered, it’s clear that dermalinfusion has many benefits and works great on many different skin types and affected areas of the body. If you like microdermabrasion and want to take things up a notch, dermalinfusion is the treatment for you!
