What Is Dermalinfusion? 3 Editors Put the Skincare Treatment to the Test

The promise of great skin is an elusive one. After all, aside from noticeable issues like acne or pigmentation, your complexion can always be better, plumper, smoother, softer, or brighter—it's a forever changing scale. So when our editors were invited to test out a new skincare treatment that promises all of the above, we were skeptical. 

Dermalinfusion is a skin-resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and serum infusion in one swift step. It's said to be the next generation of microdermabrasion and goes further by infusing the skin with serum immediately after exfoliation so the product penetrates even deeper. "We're in the category of microdermabrasion, but I hate making the comparison because it's leaps and bounds [apart]," says Sona Tolani, chief marketing officer at Envy Medical. "We aren't using loose crystals and blasting the skin; we're using medical-grade diamond tips [to] abrade the top layer, extract the dirt and debris, and infuse the skin with serum." One study found that dermalinfusion volumizes the skin by 70% and lasts for up to three days. 

Though our three editors reviewed Dermalinfusion based on a single 20-minute session, Tolani notes that it's not a "one-and-done" treatment. "Right away you're going to have more hydrated skin, brighter, more even skin tone," she says of the immediate results, and long-term, you'll notice a reduction in fine lines, sun damage, stretch marks, and scarring. If you have acne scarring or problem skin, she recommends doing four-to-six treatments, roughly one month apart. Curious? Here's what happens when three editors with three different skin types and concerns tried Dermalinfusion.
