What Is Dermalinfusion, and Should You Try It?

Celebrities and influencers all over Instagram are raving about Dermalinfusion, a skin-care treatment that claims to be changing the skin-care game. But what exactly is it and is it worth all the hype?

First things first—what exactly is Dermalinfusion? It’s is a non-invasive, medical-grade facial treatment using a small tool that benefits your skin in three ways: It sucks up dead skin and dirt to remove impurities while also exfoliating and infusing skin with customized serums that revitalize it. The aesthetician creates the serums by using blends made specifically for your needs, with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin C.

It’s also a great alternative to microdermabrasion thanks to how well it exfoliates, extracts and infuses your skin cells. Skin-care professional Jeannel Astarita of New York City’s Just Ageless uses Dermalinfusion as a constant in all of her custom facials, and she explains that “the combination of exfoliation and infusion at the same time means that the serums are able to penetrate the skin much more deeply and effectively than if they were applied separately.” It’s completely painless and feels like a tiny, wet vacuum running over your face. Plus, it’s great for all skin types.

What results will you see? Dermalinfusion is super hydrating and could give your skin up to 70 percent (!!) more volume, giving you an Instagram filter-type glow. You might also notice fewer fine lines, wrinkles and redness, as well as improvements to any hyper-pigmentation, dehydrated skin, enlarged pores and even blemishes. Basically, it improves the skin’s overall appearance and texture. Astarita, who has treated celebrities from Elle MacPherson to Leslie Mann, calls it the “ideal red carpet facial” since it provides instant and long-term improvements to your skin. Fun plus: It also serves as a wonderful temporary lip plumper.

When will you see the results? The short answer is, immediately after treatment. You’ll have glowing, plump, even skin, which feels unusually and satisfyingly clean. Optimal results will be seen about two days later. But as with any facial, the best results will occur from going on a regular basis, like once a month.

How much does it cost? Depending on where you go for treatment, one session can cost anywhere between $150 to $300.

Bottom line: If you’re looking for a quick, easy and painless glow up, Dermalinfusion is your best bet. This 30-minute treatment does more for the skin than your classic facial, and best of all, there’s no downtime—you can walk straight out of the treatment room and into a party with no one the wiser.
