Dermalinfusion, also known as DiamondGlow, is a new skin resurfacing technique developed by the prominent dermatology brand SilkPeel.

Let us take a look at how the actual procedure is done.

Dermalinfusion Facial: How Is It Done?

Dermalinfusion facial is a procedure that aims at improving the overall appearance of your skin. The facial treatment is painless and takes around 30 minutes to one hour. This is how it is done:


Your skin is cleansed thoroughly before the dermalinfusion process begins. All traces of dirt, debris, and makeup are removed from your face. Most aestheticians apply a clarifying mask on your face for a few minutes to clean out the pores and remove any impurities.

The Three-In-One Dermalinfusion Procedure

The skin care professional begins the process by treating every part of your face with a diamond-tipped or disposable vortex-tipped wand. The abrasion levels of the tip of the wand are adjusted according to the sensitivity of your skin. A gentler setting will be used when going over sensitive areas, such as around your eyes and lips.

Three things happen simultaneously during a dermalinfusion facial:

  • Exfoliation

As the wand is gently traced over your skin, your skin is exfoliated in a non-invasive way. In other kinds of exfoliation treatments, the time lag between the actual exfoliation and the application of the serum prevents active ingredients from penetrating deep into the skin. However, in dermalinfusion, these procedures take place simultaneously, thereby maximizing the chances of your skin absorbing the serum’s nutrients.

  • Extraction

The tip of the dermalinfusion handpiece is equipped with a vacuum system that suctions the dirt, impurities, and debris from your skin. This is excellent for providing your skin an ultra-deep cleanse, especially if you suffer from clogged pores and acne breakouts.

  • Serum Infusion

The procedure infuses your skin with a serum specifically customized to your needs. If you have healthy skin and want to boost your appearance for a special event, you can go for a serum that maximizes skin radiance. Those with acne-prone skin can choose a serum formulated to fight acne and tighten pores.

Depending on your skin’s needs, you can select serums enriched with vitamins E, A, and C all known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties (1).
