DiamondGlow medical facial combines exfoliation + extraction + infusion of skin-specific topical solutions to improve and revitalize the skin. This advanced facial treatment lasts longer than other topical skin facials. It is safe, painless and results are instant with NO downtime.
What is DiamondGlow and what does it do?
Like microdermabrasion, DiamondGlow treatments are non-invasive mechanical exfoliation treatments without chemicals that remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the treated area. They differ from traditional microdermabrasion treatments in that they use patented technology that gently exfoliates with diamond treatment tips while infusing topical solutions at the same time. Different topical vitamins or a combination of topicals can be used for each patient so the treatment can be customized to treat hyperpigmentation, acne, photodamage, and dehydration.
What areas are treated with DiamondGlow?
Most patients have DiamondGlow done to the face; however, the neck and chest are also often done. Although DiamondGlow treatments are most often done on their own, a mini version of the treatment can be done a few days after a deep IPL or FotoFacial treatment has been done to remove excess pigmentation or “coffee grounding” from these procedures.
What is a DiamondGlow treatment like?
To perform a DiamondGlow, it begins with a deep cleansing of the skin. Next, the DiamondGlow treatment is customized with specific solutions (see below) for your skin’s concerns is done to the treated area. The simultaneous wet exfoliation, extraction and infusion is performed for the next 20 minutes. Finally, sunscreen is applied to the treated area. The entire process takes 45 minutes.
DiamondGlow offers four unique solutions. These can be used in different areas of the face depending upon skin concerns:
Hydrating: for patients seeking extra moisture and plumping due to dry skin, fine lines/wrinkles, and aging.
Vitamin C: for patients seeking antioxidant therapy due to sun damage, fine and dry lines, and aging.
Skin Brightening: for patients seeking brighter complexion due to hyperpigmentation, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Pore Clarifying: for patients seeking treatment for acne due to non-inflammatory or inflammatory acne and acne scarring.
What kind of results can I expect from a DiamondGlow treatment?
After treatment – your face will have a refined, polished effect for the skin, and depending upon the solutions used, you may have some additional benefits to acne or hyperpigmentation. Your pore size will appear smaller and your skin should appear healthier and well-hydrated. Effects last up to 2-3 weeks. These treatments are good to do before a big event, as they will make the skin look renewed and fresh. If you are doing these treatments in a series, you should expect to do them about once every 4 weeks. These treatments are safe to do on any age or skin type.
