When making a first impression, our faces speak volumes before we even say a word. From our expressions to skin tone and texture, our faces communicate much about who we are and how we feel. 

But when it comes to feeling confident and comfortable in our skin, many struggle with imperfections such as pigmentation, blemishes, and scarring. These concerns can be frustrating, especially when they seem to persist despite our best efforts to address them with skincare products, often to no avail.

That’s where Allergan Aesthetics DiamondGlow comes in, the latest luxurious  skin resurfacing treatment that reveals a radiant, glowing complexion! We’ll explore the ins and outs of DiamondGlow, from what it is to how it works with the SkinMedica serums. So whether you’re looking to rejuvenate your skin or just curious about the latest skincare trends, keep reading to discover everything you need to know about DiamondGlow!


How Does DiamondGlow Work?

DiamondGlow is a revolutionary skin resurfacing and purifying treatment that combines a precision diamond tip and targeted SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums. Unlike other therapies, DiamondGlow is customized to each patient’s skin concerns and type, ensuring they receive the most effective treatment possible.

The process begins with exfoliating the skin and removing debris and other impurities with the diamond tip. It also helps unclog pores, smooth roughness, and improve skin discoloration and texture.

The SkinMedica Serums are then infused into the skin, delivering a powerful blend of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, clarifying serum, and vitamin C, which target fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and overall dryness.


What To Expect During a DiamondGlow Treatment

When it comes to DiamondGlow, the experience is as unique as the individual receiving the treatment. Before starting the process, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, and his team of aesthetic experts  will assess your skin health and discuss any concerns or goals you may have. This assessment will help determine the most practical combination of serums and diamond tips during the treatment.

DiamondGlow’s patented recessed diamond tip wand delivers a next-level resurfacing treatment that deeply cleans and rejuvenates the skin. The diamond tip gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells, debris, and other impurities while infusing SkinMedica Serums onto the skin when pores are open and most receptive.

During the treatment, you will feel a gentle suction as the diamond tip glides across your skin, promoting lymphatic drainage and increased blood flow. 

Two passes are made to the entire face, including the neck, under the eyes, and lips. With minimal downtime and a soothing treatment process, DiamondGlow is the perfect facial treatment to help you achieve the skin of your dreams!


How Long Does a DiamondGlow Facial Take?

DiamondGlow is an incredibly efficient and time-effective treatment for achieving beautiful, glowing skin. The DiamondGlow facial typically takes around 30-45 minutes to complete with zero downtime, making it an ideal option for patients with busy schedules!

While the actual DiamondGlow facial may only take 30-45 minutes, patients can expect a continued improvement of their skin’s appearance for weeks following the treatment. Dr. Vinyard will recommend a tailored plan for consistent  DiamondGlow treatments for the best possible results.


Does DiamondGlow Get Rid of Dead Skin Cells?

DiamondGlow is designed to effectively remove dead skin cells and other impurities from the skin, resulting in a brighter, smoother, and more youthful complexion. The patented recessed diamond tip wand used during DiamondGlow treatments exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, revealing the healthy skin underneath.

The treatment simultaneously extracts impurities and infuses SkinMedica Serums, specifically selected to address the patient’s unique skincare concerns and goals. This process of exfoliation, extraction, and infusion deeply cleans and rejuvenates the skin, resulting in a clearer, more even complexion.

DiamondGlow also helps improve the skin’s overall texture and tone by removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores. Patients with acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, or dull, dry, or rough skin can benefit greatly from this treatment. Using various diamond tips, which are selected based on the patient’s skin type and condition, ensures a customized treatment that is both safe and effective.


What Is the Difference Between DiamondGlow and Microdermabrasion?

While both DiamondGlow and microdermabrasion are skin resurfacing treatments, there are some critical differences between the two.

Microdermabrasion is a chemical exfoliation that uses a spray of abrasive crystals to exfoliate the skin and suction to remove dead skin cells and debris. DiamondGlow, on the other hand, uses a diamond tip wand that is customized to the patient’s skin type to gently exfoliate, extract, and infuse the skin with SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums.

The diamond tip of DiamondGlow creates a controlled exfoliation that easily  removes the top layer of dead skin cells while simultaneously infusing the skin with nourishing serums. This allows for a more precise and targeted treatment, making DiamondGlow ideal for patients with different skin types and concerns.

Overall, DiamondGlow offers a more comprehensive and personalized treatment that can improve the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and dryness while giving patients brighter skin.


What Are the SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums?

SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums are a vital component of the DiamondGlow treatment. They are specially formulated to work in conjunction with the DiamondGlow technology to provide targeted and effective skin rejuvenation.

There are five different SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums to choose from, each with unique benefits addressing a range of concerns like acne-prone or problematic skin or dryness and dull skin. Other serums in the SkinMedica Pro-Infusion line address issues like fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage, to name a few.

These serums contain high-quality ingredients like hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to nourish and protect the skin, providing continued improvement to the skin.


Can the SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums Be Customized to My Skin?

The SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums can be customized to your specific skin concerns. There are five different serums available to choose from, and during your DiamondGlow treatment, you will select up to two serums that are best suited for your skin.

The available options are: 

  1. SkinMedica Pore Clarifying Pro-Infusion Serum (addresses imperfections and promotes clearer skin) 
  2. SkinMedica Ultra Hydrating Pro-Infusion Serum (infuses hyaluronic acid to rehydrate and smooth skin) 
  3. SkinMedica Skin Brightening Pro-Infusion Serum (uses patented Lumixyl peptide to brighten and improve the appearance of uneven pigmentation) 
  4. SkinMedica Vitamin C Pro-Infusion Serum (delivers a deep dose of antioxidants to rejuvenate and protect your skin)
  5. SkinMedica TNS Advanced+ Serum (contains patented growth factor technology that targets fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and texture)

By using these serums during your DiamondGlow treatment, we can further customize the experience to your specific needs and achieve the best possible results for your skin!


What Results Can I Expect From a DiamondGlow Facial?

With DiamondGlow, you can expect a range of benefits, including improved skin texture, a brighter complexion, and reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The customized serum blend addresses specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, dryness, and acne. This results in a smoother, more even skin tone and a hydrated, glowing complexion. 

DiamondGlow stimulates lymphatic drainage, promoting detoxification and reducing puffiness, redness, and temporary tightness. DiamondGlow is a highly effective and soothing treatment with zero downtime and immediate results that will leave your skin looking and feeling its best.
