The quest for a singular skincare elixir that effectively addresses multiple skin concerns is akin to finding the holy grail of skincare but New York-based celebrity dermatologist Dr Dennis Gross may have come close to achieving this feat with the DermInfusions Fill + Repair Serum.
Twenty-five years ago, Dr Dennis Gross revolutionised the at-home skincare industry with his daily peel technology and the Alpha Beta Peel. A cult product for their efficacy in rejuvenating the skin, diminishing hyperpigmentation, and achieving a harmonious skin tone, all while requiring minimal recovery time they set Gross on the map as someone who could deliver skincare products that were effective, easy to use and cut through industry hype.
History seems to be repeating itself with the DermInfusions Fill + Repair Serum.
According to Gross, the DermInfusions serum offers a three-dimensional approach to skincare. In his own words, it “adds volume back into the skin in three directions (up, down, and sideways), plumping fine lines and wrinkles without the need for needles or filler.”
This threeway approach to skincare is what makes it the alternative to injectables, promising all the same benefits without the side-effects that can come with with trying to use fillers or Botox to turn back the clock. Plus, it’s a saviour for maintaining a strong moisture barrier, a must to reduce redness and keep your skin properly hydrated. This is a key point in the way that the brand treats skin from not just a cosmetic angle, but a health one. The healthier your skin is, the better it looks in the long run
As far as whom, Gross recommends it for “all skin types, especially mature, dry, compromised, and sensitive skin.”
One of the stars of this skincare show is the microcelle delivery system, which Dr. Gross gushes about: “It uses water to improve the penetration and absorption of all active ingredients.” This clever system reduces the surface tension of water droplets, allowing ingredients to penetrate deeper into your skin. But what’s in this serum that makes it so transformative? It’s a mix of four different weights of hyaluronic acid, working their magic throughout all skin layers to boost volume. There are also peptides that stimulate collagen, improving skin density and firmness. Unlike traditional fillers, this serum adds ectoin, niacinamide, and ceramides to fortify your moisture barrier, which Dr. Gross calls “the real star of the show.”
Now, in the age of Dr. Google and skincare influencers, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with information. Dr. Gross explains that “skin is unique to each person, and skin conditions can appear differently in different people.” So, while a Google search might be tempting, his advice is to “get skin advice from a trusted expert,” emphasising the importance of proper identification for effective treatment.
For the best results, Dr. Gross recommends some skincare synergy. He suggests pairing the DermInfusions serum with the Alpha Beta Daily Peel, a two-step peel that removes dead skin cells, dirt, and debris, priming your skin for the serum’s magic. For evening skincare, Dr. Gross turns to his Advanced Retinol + Ferulic range, which stimulates collagen production and reduces signs of aging.
But what’s the one must-have the expert himself never goes without? He swears by the Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Triple Correction Eye Serum, a powerful yet gentle treatment that’s perfect for travel.
