It’s a new year, so why not set a goal to renew your skin? The latest trends in skincare promote advanced rejuvenation with little to no downtime. Gone are the days where you had to hide out for a week or so at home after a laser procedure because you look like a burn victim. Now we can increase collagen and elastin, plumpness and volume, luminosity and glow, while correcting uneven pigmentation, acne, inflammation, and fine lines and wrinkles — all in one fell swoop!

Dermalinfusion is a game-changer. It is the ultimate multitasker for skin repair and rejuvenation. Quick, gentle, and simple, with zero downtime, it is suitable for all skin types. This non-invasive system simultaneously exfoliates the skin, extracts debris, and infuses the freshly-cleaned skin with a therapeutic serum using patented technology. One treatment takes about 30 minutes, and ideally, a series of sessions done two to four weeks apart can produce a profound change in skin quality.

Timing is key. You may be spending a lot of money on skincare products already. But did you know that less than 10% of the active ingredient in a skincare product penetrates the skin if the skin is not properly exfoliated prior to application? You may be wasting 90% of your product and your money as well. Dermalinfusion closes the gap between exfoliation and infusion of product to provide ideal delivery to the skin.

How does it work? Dermalinfusion is a system designed by Envy Medical. It is an FDA-approved medical device that “is powered by its patented handpiece, developed to deliver many precise skin benefits in one simultaneous action. The pneumatic chamber at the handpiece tip creates closed-loop suction onto skin upon contact, instantly lifting skin for extraction and abrasion by a recessed exfoliating diamond tip. At the same time, pneumatic pressure infuses skin with ingredient-rich serums. This process is not sequential, but simultaneous, and is how Dermalinfusion’s technology eliminates time-gaps between exfoliation and serum application for optimal skin receptivity and retention” (Envy Medical).

This system has been shown to volumize the skin by 70% through rapid hydration delivered at the peak of the skin’s ability to receive the therapeutic serum. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles while stimulating healthy cell renewal. Skin tone is greatly improved. It cleans pores and reduces acne while polishing the skin surface, which helps reduce scarring, peau d’orange, and other skin surface irregularities. Because of its gentle action, it can be used to treat the delicate skin around the eyes and over the lips. It also promotes lymphatic flow and drainage, which reduces the puffiness and congestion that some people are challenged with (especially under the eyes). Unlike other popular treatments that only act on the skin’s surface, Dermalinfusion deeply penetrates into the epidermal-dermal junction for more dramatic results. 

I like to refer to Dermalinfusion as the ultimate vacuum-cleaner for your face. Old cells are sloughed off along with debris, residual make-up, congestion, and pore-clogging sebum. At the end of your treatment session, you can look at the clear glass collection jar and see all of the gunk and cellular debris that has been removed from your face. It’s a strange combination of repulsion and satisfaction knowing that your face is truly clean! Another physician refers to it as “a medical-grade power-washer for the skin.” One happy customer even called it “a Biore Pore Strip on steroids.” Any way you describe it, it is more than just the next-generation of microdermabrasion. Not only does it exfoliate and cleanse; the real magic occurs in the infusion phase. Once thoroughly stripped of dead cells, the skin is most receptive to any of the four specialized serums that are infused. Since this happens instantaneously, the skin doesn’t have a chance to clog up again — you get maximal benefits! The four serums are specifically formulated to target different skin concerns. The effective ingredients in each serum, such as pigment-reducing peptides, anti-oxidant botanical extract combinations, vitamin C, hydrating factors, and others are supported by research.  

Dermalinfusion is a procedure available at the newly-opened medi-spa, Facial Innovations, here in Ann Arbor ( Book an appointment with their highly-skilled aesthetician and you will be amazed at your results. Your individual skin-care needs will be assessed and your treatment will be customized. Depending on your skin type, different medical-grade diamond head exfoliating tips are used. You have a choice of the four condition-specific serums to be infused: ultrahydrating, skin brightening, Vitamin C (for rejuvenation), or pore clarifying (great for acne). After Dermalinfusion, your skin will remain more receptive to your daily skin care products. The friendly and knowledgeable staff at Facial Innovations can also recommend specific products that further promote improved skin appearance and health for post-procedure optimization.

Dermalinfusion is not just for the face. Neck, décolletage, and hands are other popular areas to treat, as these also show our age. It can be a full-body skin care treatment. One can target problem areas such as rough patches, dark spots, extremely dry or cracked skin, acne of the back, scars, stretch marks, cellulite, and keratosis pilaris. It can be used to rejuvenate any part of the skin that needs help. You can look at the dramatic before and after photos on their website ( The advanced resurfacing effects provide head-to-toe body polishing, leaving you with clearer, smoother, and more youthful skin. 

Women and men of all ages can benefit — from teens to those who are decades older. As we age, not only do we lose collagen, elasticity, and hydration, but our complexions can become grayer and duller. Personally, I love the skin-brightening benefits of Dermalinfusion, as it restores luminosity and radiance. It also improves uneven pigmentation and reverses sun damage. Got an event coming up where you’d literally like to shine? Once you renew your skin, people will notice your new glow in 2020!
