What is Dermal Infusion Facial?
Age, weather, the environment, genetics, diet, beauty routines, and lifestyle choices all play a role in what your skin looks like. Some days are better than others, and some years are better than others.
At some point, despite our best efforts, we all deal with blemishes, pigmentation changes, dryness, and wrinkles. And if we want to minimize those inevitable signs, we have many choices, but they tend to specialize in one area or another: They address texture but not sun spots, or sun spots but not clogged pores — until now.
Our team of expert aestheticians at Contours LaserSpa in Fairfax, Virginia, is excited to offer you the dermal infusion facial, which takes care of multiple skin problems at once. With board-certified Dr. Tammy Jones at the helm, we help people achieve the skin of their dreams.
Here’s what you need to know about dermal infusion facials.
What’s happening to your face?
Before we get into the inner workings of the dermal infusion facial, let’s take a look at what’s happening to your face every day.
Whether you’re young or old or somewhere in between, one thing we all have in common is that our skin continually renews itself. That means old cells on the surface that have served their purpose slough off to make room for new cells underneath to rise up and take their place.
If those old cells hang out on the surface, your skin looks dry, rough, and old. And if they happen to get trapped in your skin instead of falling off, they clog your pores and cause whiteheads, blackheads, and acne.
As time goes by, another phenomenon occurs — you lose fat. Now, anywhere else on your body you might welcome that, but when your face loses fat, it loses volume, which means the skin that used to be plump and smooth is now sagging and wrinkled like a deflated balloon.
Getting older also means your body slows down its production of collagen and elastin, two vital proteins that give your skin structure and resilience. Without them, your skin can’t recover from the constant creasing that occurs every time you smile, laugh, or frown, and the lines stay there.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that you can fix all those problems with a dermal infusion facial.
How a dermal infusion facial fixes your face
In the hands of licensed, experienced professionals like our team here at Contours LaserSpa, dermal infusion technology is a powerful resurfacing tool that rejuvenates your facial skin and leaves you with a clearer, brighter, tighter complexion.
The process is noninvasive and painless, which is why it’s become one of the most popular services we offer. But it’s effectiveness is what really has our patients praising the dermal infusion facial. Here’s what this 3-in-1 wonder wand does for you.
Exfoliates dead skin
The first step is exfoliation. Remember those dead skin cells we talked about? We use a medical-grade, diamond-tipped tool to carefully abrade the top layer of your skin and get rid of dull, dry, dead cells, wiping away the spots caused by age and sun exposure.
This alone dramatically changes the look of your skin, making it cleaner and more radiant. But wait … there’s more.
The second function of the dermal infusion facial is the patented vacuum action that safely sucks out the dirt, debris, and dead cells clogging your pores and giving you those unsightly blemishes.
This is extraction like you’ve never experienced before. No pinching or poking here, just a powerful force of suction that clears away all the things that cause pimples and clogged pores.
The final step in your dermal infusion facial is the infusion part. Here, we saturate your inner skin with problem-solving, life-giving serums. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment; we customize your infusion according to your skin type and your aesthetic goals.
We may infuse your face with hyaluronic acid to hydrate, salicylic acid to treat acne-prone skin, or vitamin C to prevent damage from free radicals.
Your dermal infusion facial results
Everyone responds differently to aesthetic treatments, but in general, you can expect a little redness for a few hours after your dermal infusion facial, and then clear, brighter skin after that.
Depending on the severity of your skin issues, you might need to come back in a few weeks for a follow-up session, but they only take 20-30 minutes, so you can get on with your busy schedule.
Our dermal infusion facial patients have traded in their blotchy, rough, wrinkled skin for smoother, plumper, tighter cheeks and chins. If you want to find out more about dermal infusion facials, give us a call or book an appointment online today.
