Medical-grade skin resurfacing treatments are an excellent way to complement your daily skincare routine. A new cosmetic procedure called the DiamondGlow facial treatment is a highly effective way to achieve dewy fresh, radiant skin that has a healthy glow and defies age. Please continue reading to learn more about the unique benefits of a DiamondGlow facial.
What is DiamondGlow facial?
Some skin treatments exfoliate, others clear debris from your pores, and yet others hydrate your skin. DiamondGlow does all three!
This is a transformative non-invasive skin treatment that is performed using a patented instrument with a diamond tip (hence the name). The DiamondGlow device is essentially a dermabrasion instrument that gently removes the damaged upper layer of skin to reveal fresher, radiant, more youthful skin underneath. The treatment is combined with the infusion of advanced skincare serums from SkinMedica to replenish your skin with nutrients and hydration.
Simply put, DiamondGlow is a corrective 3-in-1 facial treatment that simultaneously performs exfoliation, extraction, and infusion to give your skin a radiant, healthy glow.
Does DiamondGlow remove blackheads?
Yes, the exfoliation process that is part of the DiamondGlow facial removes damaged cells from the skin’s surface. The extraction process then unclogs your pores, leaving you with smoother skin that is free of blackheads.
But that’s not all. The 3-step DiamondGlow facial does much more than remove blackheads. You get brighter, fresher skin that looks smoother and more radiant. Your complexion is clearer with a more even tone and a softer texture.
Whether you are bothered by fine lines and wrinkles, roughness, dryness, age spots, discoloration, dull skin, blackheads, clogged pores, or a combination of these skin concerns, a DiamondGlow facial can improve the appearance of your skin with just one in-office treatment. What’s more, the treatment can be customized to your unique skin concerns with various premium SkinMedica infusion serums.
What are the three steps in the DiamondGlow facial?
The DiamondGlow wand has a unique diamond-coated tip that gently removes dead skin cells and buffs the surface of your skin to reveal a fresh layer of skin below. This step prepares your skin for the deep cleansing that will follow.
One of the reasons you get breakouts is dirt and oil clog your pores and get trapped under a layer of dead skin cells. The DiamondGlow device has a proprietary suction system that extracts dirt, debris, and excess oil from your pores. This makes the DiamondGlow treatment especially effective for acne-prone skin or skin that has blackheads or whiteheads.
The final step of the DiamondGlow facial involves infusing your skin with signature serums that are customized to your unique skin needs. These serums help to hydrate, brighten, and nourish your skin from within.
How do I prepare for DiamondGlow facial treatment?
There is no special preparation required for a DiamondGlow facial other than you should discontinue the use of skincare products that contain retinol, vitamin A, or AHAs three days before your appointment. The treatment is safe for all skin tones, including fair and dark skin.
You should know that a DiamondGlow facial may not be right for everyone. Tell us if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you have an active skin condition, including allergies. Also, be sure to give us a complete list of your medications. If you have taken an acne medication called isotretinoin (Accutane) recently, you’ll need to wait a little longer before getting a DiamondGlow treatment.
How long does a DiamondGlow session take? Is it painful?
Given that a DiamondGlow facial includes three different steps and addresses so many common skin issues, you might be surprised to learn that a session only takes 30 minutes to complete. It is a non-invasive treatment that is pain-free and comfortable for the most part, except for some minor stinging or scratching sensation.
How long does a DiamondGlow facial last?
You get instant results from a DiamondGlow facial with no downtime. But that’s not all. Your skin continues to respond over the next 6-12 weeks as the serums get to work. Therefore, you can expect to see continued improvement in the smoothness and brightness of your skin in the weeks following your DiamondGlow facial.
How often should you get a DiamondGlow facial?
We will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan for your skin. In general, we recommend that you undergo a series of 6-10 treatments for best results, spaced about 3-4 weeks apart. Once you have completed the initial series, you can settle into a schedule of one DiamondGlow facial every 3-4 months.
Is DiamondGlow better than Hydrafacial?
DiamondGlow is often compared to another popular professional facial called Hydrafacial. There are some key differences between the two.
Hydrafacial uses chemical exfoliation with salicylic acid glycolic acid, while DiamondGlow uses a diamond-tipped wand to perform dermabrasion (physical exfoliation). Therefore, DiamondGlow is a more corrective approach with more dramatic results compared to the gentler cosmetic approach of Hydrafacial.
While the serums can be customized in both treatments, DiamondGlow serums are specially formulated to address skin concerns such as pigmentation, rough texture, uneven tone, dullness, and clogged pores. Additionally, the six different tips in the DiamondGlow device can be used to customize the treatment for your skin.
Therefore, a DiamondGlow facial can leave your skin deeply cleansed, brighter, smoother, and more hydrated with a noticeable glow, with more noticeable results than a Hydrafacial.
Can you exercise after a DiamondGlow facial?
Yes, you can return to all your routine activities, including exercise, immediately after your DiamondGlow facial treatment. There is zero downtime and no recovery time. You can wear makeup and return to work the same day. As always, we recommend that you use sun protection to keep your skin looking young and fresh.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience a slight stinging or scratchy sensation during the treatment. There can be some minor redness and slight swelling for a few hours afterward. Very rarely, there can be more serious effects like skin irritation or allergic reactions—the SkinMedica serums used in the DiamondGlow facial meet the FDA’s safety standards for cosmetic products.
