What is Dermal Resuracing & What will it do for my skin?

Dermal resurfacing is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. Achieved by using a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions.


The Dermal Resurfacing procedure involves the use of a 10-inch blade, which curves into a point. The blade is used on clean, dry or oiled skin-on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair. This treatment can be combined with a light chemical peel for better absorption of the acids into the skin. 

Cosmetic Micro Infusion

Cosmetic Micro Infusion  is a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment that creates a controlled injury underneath the surface of the skin, there by inducing the body to respond by producing collagen i the treated areas. The skin plumps, tightens, and thickens in response to stimulus, reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks fine lines and pore size. Cosmetic Micro Infusion increases the absorption of topical products. you may experience mild discomfort during the treatment and down time is minimal.( A disposable tip is used for each client at each treatment. )

What will happen during the Dermal Resurfacing / Micro Infusion treatments?

With the Derma Resurfacing treatment your face will be prepped with a skin prep solution. Then the process of removing the dead skin and vellus hair will take place by gently gliding the blade across the face in an upwards motion. Once this is completed the face is wiped clean and we will tone the skin, and follow with a line of customized product for your unique skin, finishing with SPF. 


With Cosmetic Micro Infusion your face is deep cleansed then prepped with a skin prepping solution.  Then we will apply a thin layer of HA with vitamins to the skin to be infused with the cosmetic micro needling treatment we begin by doing circular movement with our micro instrument all over the face to include the nose. We apply a mixture of HA, antioxidants, vitamin C and stem cell serums. Once this is completed a calming mask is applied to the face to help the serums soak into the skin. Then all the products are massaged into the skin with a then layer of sheer moisturizer and protected with SPF.

Is there any down time?

Although the treatments are Non-Invasive you will need to protect your skin with moisturizer and SPF for 48 hours after the treatment is completed. You may experience some mild redness-and slothing or peeling of the skin, this is normal and the excess skin will flake off. However, you may return to work immediately, which is why it is okay to have your Micro Infusion / Dermal Resurfacing treatment done during lunch. 

Cosmetic Micro Infusion may require 1 to two days down time. Its best practice to use a fresh pillow case and do not touch your face with uncleaned hands during down time.

After Care

Dermal Resurfacing and Cosmetic Micro Infusion After Care

What To Do After a Dermal Resurfacing  /Cosmetic Micro Including Treatment: First, it's important to remember that any skin resurfacing or penetration procedure is somewhat invasive (but so is the regular facial scrub you use at home) and your skin needs some time to recover. The top skin layers have just been removed or punctured and your face simply reacts back.

Facial redness after each treatment is normal (the redness should fade in a few hours) and so is some itchiness and a mild sunburn and or stinging sensation (which can last up to two days afterwards).

Do these next 4 things to avoid complications and speed up your skin's recovery:

1 Cleanse your face immediately after treatment with a wet cloth and re hydrating toner to remove any dead skin cells left behind. This will be done by your tech. 

2 Once the skin has dried completely, apply a rich moisturizer. Use moisturizer for 4-6 days after Treatment to avoid excessive peeling.

3 Don't forget to use sunscreen every time you go out (even if it's an overcast day) because this treatment increases photosensitivity.

4 Avoid staying in the sun for 7 days after treatment to prevent UV rays from damaging your skin (which slows down the recovery). Avoid working out or sweating for 2 days after your Cosmetic Micro Infusion Treatment.

Facial redness and itchiness are mainly after-effects. Use moisturizer and high SPF sunscreen which helps to soothe the skin and speed up recovery. 

Facial Makeup After Dermal Resurfacing   

Avoid using any type of liquid or powder foundation (or any other type of cover up, for that matter) for the first 2-3 days after treatment. Eye makeup and lipstick are allowed (any red marks usually fade after a few hours).

What Is Best To Apply On Your Face After treatment

Some creams, gels and ointments can help relieve the tenderness or the burning sensation you get after your treatment.

Vitamin A, C and E products increase skin elasticity and help the skin look fresh and toned..

What To Avoid After your treatment 

Avoid any exfoliation or shaving after treatment. 

Avoid at home exfoliation products 

and glycolic acid-based creams for 3 days  treatment.

Avoid waxing for at least 2 weeks after treatment.
