Dermal Infusion: A Complete Guide

Most of us would love a magic wand that could give us healthy and youthful skin and do away with the unwanted effects of aging. After all, how incredible would it be to wake up one morning looking ten years younger? While there’s no such thing as magic wands to help us get perfect skin, there might be something better. A treatment called dermal infusion is offering people a way to get healthy, glowing skin that leaves them looking youthful and fresh.

If you’re interested in learning more about dermal infusion, this guide is for you. Let’s take a look at what dermal infusion is, how it works, and why it’s quickly becoming a leading skin treatment.


To help you better understand the benefits of using dermal infusion, you need to know what this treatment is. Dermal infusion is a skincare treatment that’s 100% noninvasive. It uses advanced, FDA-approved technology to clear your skin in three different ways.

Firstly, it exfoliates the skin and vacuums away any loose skin and debris. At the same time, the machine applies a custom serum that’s designed to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin.

The process can be used on the upper chest, face, and neck. Plus, it’s a treatment that’s been deemed safe for helping people who struggle with recurring acne or skin issues such as rosacea.


Remember how we said that dermal infusion is a 3-in-1 treatment? That’s because it serves three major purposes when treating your skin:

  1. Exfoliation
  2. Removing dirt and dead skin
  3. Infusing your skin with a custom serum

The dermal infusion machinery is made out of a vortex-tipped mechanism that uses a diamond tip to exfoliate the skin. The wand is very small but this enables it to get into the skin and pull out the dirt.

The best part about this treatment is that it’s highly customizable. The esthetician can adjust the tip of the wand to match your skin type. It can be used for sensitive areas of the skin, such as near the eyes or lips, as well as on firmer parts of the body such as the upper chest.

At the same time as the wand is exfoliating the skin, it is removing the debris and applying a serum to your face. Just like the wand tip, the serum can be made to suit your skin type, treating conditions such as:

  • acne
  • fine lines
  • dry skin
  • sun damage
  • hyperpigmentation
  • rosacea
  • eczema
  • telangiectasia

Depending on the exact makeup of the serum, the treatment can easily help keep your skin in good condition. It’s the perfect choice for anyone needing to improve their overall complexion.


So, what makes dermal infusion a better choice than microdermabrasion or other exfoliation and skin tightening treatments? As it happens, there are a few different advantages offered by this treatment.

For one, it uses an adjustable wand. Because of that, the device can be customized so for use on people who struggle with eczema, rosacea, acne, or even psoriasis. Because it is such a versatile device, it can treat sensitive body parts that other skin treatments can’t tackle.

Plus, the treatment offers other benefits too. It can help reduce skin discoloration and can assist in clearing up acne. It has been shown to help:

  • even out the skin tone
  • brighten the complexion
  • reduce the appearance of dark spots
  • reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • unclog pores
  • improve the skin’s smoothness

With all those benefits it’s no wonder that this is such a popular treatment. And, it’s no surprise that it’s become many people’s first choice for facial treatments.


While dermal infusion is mostly a highly beneficial treatment, there are a few side effects that you should be aware of. Due to the exfoliation process, dermal infusion can cause some skin redness and sensitivity.

On top of that, if you have a few underlying conditions, it can be dangerous. You shouldn’t use dermal infusion if you suffer from:

  • herpes sores
  • autoimmune diseases
  • skin cancer
  • slow wound healing
  • thin skin

If you use dermal infusion in these situations, you can damage your skin and cause harm to the body. Make sure to consult your esthetician before signing up for a treatment.


One reason people love dermal infusion is that it works on any body part. Typically, clients opt for treatment on their upper chest, neck, and face.

However, it can also treat stretch marks on the stomach or breasts. Or, it can be used on the legs or arms if there is significant sun damage or scarring.

Regardless of what part of the body you choose to treat, it will take between thirty minutes and an hour for your treatment to be completed. That means you can book this appointment while on your lunch break and not miss any work!


One of the main draws of this treatment is that it applies a serum to your skin. As such, you may be wondering exactly what is in that serum and how it will affect your skin.

Typically, dermal infusion serums contain ingredients such as:

  • vitamin C
  • vitamin E
  • grape seed extract
  • oregano oil
  • licorice root extract
  • decapeptide-12
  • salicylic acid

Each of these ingredients has healing, soothing properties for the skin. If you have allergies or sensitivities, your serum can be changed to ensure that nothing will damage or harm your skin.
