Enter Qure: a new Micro-Infusion system for home use that was inspired by clinical dermastamping procedures. The 3-month Micro-Infusion Facial System kit includes six single-use heads that have hollow 24K gold 0.5mm clinical-grade needles, making it a safer and more hygienic alternative to derma rolling. It also contains six individual use serums that you fill the heads up with, as you press the stamp into the skin, the serums are distributed into the skin. This helps active ingredients penetrate deep into the skin while stimulating collagen and elastin production. (And luckily I have a discount code for you! Use the code SIGOURNEY10 for 10% off)
Intrigued, I decided to try it before a beauty event I had coming up. You start by twisting open the chamber of the device and filling until it’s half full with one (1) ampule of serum, then you leave it upside down for 2 minutes while it travels into the needles. This is when you wash your face and hands to ensure it’s as sterile an experience as possible.Then you start stamping! You start from the centre of your face outwards, using a 50% overlap technique.
This will create a controlled wound healing response in the skin which in turn prompts your cells to begin collagen production. It also creates micro channels in the skin that help penetrate the skin barrier, helping the serums to penetrate more deeply. When you’re finished simply pat any leftover serum into the skin – all the way down to your neck. The result? Apparently it will lead to Improved elasticity, smoother fine lines, and diminished wrinkles. I think of it like a workout for your skin, encouraging it to rejuvenate and revitalize itself.
I found it quite prickly – particularly on the upper lip! But it doesn’t exactly hurt because the needles are finer than human hair. It’s slightly more intense than dermarolling but not nearly as ouchy as the in clinic procedures. Afterwards my skin was pink and pricked in places but it cleared up by morning and my skin was glowing. The glow increased as the day progressed and by day three I was admiring my complexion whenever I passed a mirror.
I love that you can choose between the Hydra-Soothing Serum with Beta Glucan and the Rejuvenating Serum which contains EGF – Epidermal Growth Factors – to plump lines and hydrate. By creating these pathways into the epidermis it enhances the absorption of powerful ingredients, accelerating their impact by up to 300% according to the brand. I’m hoping the boffins at Qure Skincare will bring out even more serums as this is such an exciting way to deliver ingredients deep into the layers of your skin.
I was so impressed with my results that I’ve ordered more and have started using the Qure Microinfusion System whenever I want to give my skin an added boost of glow, especially before events. It’s like a secret weapon for getting that coveted red-carpet-worthy skin, no need to visit the salon or clinic for a professional treatment. Which, in our time-poor reality is always a win!
