Dull, rough skin is a common concern for nearly all skin types and can keep your complexion from looking and feeling bright and refreshed. That’s where DiamondGlow® comes in. DiamondGlow is a three-in-one facial treatment that exfoliates, extracts, and infuses the skin with customized serums for a brilliant glow and clear, smooth skin. And the best part? There are no needles or downtime involved!

Here, we break down what DiamondGlow is and how it works, plus answer some of the most frequently asked questions about this trending skin resurfacing treatment.

What Is DiamondGlow?

DiamondGlow is a non-invasive skin resurfacing facial treatment that uses a handheld, diamond-tipped wand to gently exfoliate the skin and deeply clean pores. As your skin is cleansed, the wand simultaneously infuses your skin with customized skin serums designed to precisely target your skin’s unique needs. These serums can target a variety of common skin concerns, including wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, dryness, and acne.

How Does DiamondGlow Work?

DiamondGlow’s patented diamond-tipped wand is the star of the show for this treatment. With six available tips, your DiamondGlow facial can be completely customized to fit your skin’s needs. Each diamond tip is designed to maximize exfoliation and improve results for specific skin concerns and types.

The tiny diamond crystals pass over your skin to remove dead skin cells and other debris from deep within the skin’s surface. This diamond microdermabrasion also decongests pores and improves circulation, all while remaining gentle on even sensitive skin types. While the skin is cleansed and pores are clear and open, specialized serums are able to optimally penetrate the skin for improved results.

What Can I Expect at My DiamondGlow Appointment?

Your DiamondGlow facial treatment should only take around 30 minutes to complete. Because it is non-invasive, you shouldn’t experience any pain or discomfort.

Your DiamondGlow appointment will begin with a thorough cleanse to ensure all makeup and excess oil are removed. Your DiamondGlow provider will then assess your skin to determine the best diamond tip or tips to use, as well as your personalized serums. Next, the diamond-tipped wand will be passed over your skin, treating both your face and neck. Finally, your provider may complete your DiamondGlow facial with SPF to keep fresh skin protected.

Directly after your DiamondGlow appointment, you can resume all normal activities, as there is no downtime. However, it is recommended that you avoid the sun for the remainder of the day, and don’t exfoliate your skin at home for the first few days after your treatment. Your skin may appear red or pink right after your DiamondGlow appointment, as the treatment enhances circulation. Redness, tenderness, and mild swelling are the most common side effects.

Who Is DiamondGlow Best For?

DiamondGlow can be an excellent skin resurfacing treatment for any skin type and a wide range of skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, aging, and acne. Because both the diamond tip and serums are customizable, this skin treatment can be suitable for most people.

However, let your provider know if you have psoriasis, eczema, or other conditions that can compromise skin quality, or if you have allergies or are pregnant or breastfeeding. In these instances, DiamondGlow may not be recommended.

Is DiamondGlow Better than HydraFacial?

DiamondGlow and Hydrafacial are both excellent skin treatments that exfoliate, extract, and infuse the skin with customized serums. Each treatment, however, comes with its own unique set of benefits and the best pick for you will depend on your specific skincare needs and goals.

Generally speaking, DiamondGlow is considered more of a clinical treatment that can correct a number of skin issues. HydraFacial, on the other hand, can also address a number of skin concerns like dryness, wrinkles, and acne, but is considered more of a cosmetic treatment. This is because DiamondGlow uses physical exfoliation to more deeply treat the skin, while HydraFacial uses chemical exfoliants that, while effective, do not reach as deep within the skin as with DiamondGlow.

However, some people may choose to schedule HydraFacial treatments after their initial DiamondGlow facial to help prolong and enhance their results.

Is DiamondGlow Better than Microneedling?

DiamondGlow and microneedling are both highly effective skin treatments that can address similar skin issues. One of the main advantages of DiamondGlow over microneedling, however, is the fact that DiamondGlow is less invasive than microneedling. Microneedling uses tiny needles to pierce the skin, creating micro-channels which stimulate collagen and cell renewal.

Both DiamondGlow and microneedling should always be performed by a properly trained and qualified medical professional. If you aren’t sure whether DiamondGlow or microneedling could be the best skin treatment for you, get in touch with us to consult one of our highly skilled and experienced providers.

How Soon Will I See DiamondGlow Results?

You should notice an immediate improvement in the brightness, smoothness, and overall appearance of your skin after your initial DiamondGlow treatment. Those results will continue to improve over the next week, as your skin’s natural cell renewal process continues to replace old exfoliated skin cells with new, fresh ones. Most people see the best results after a series of three to four DiamondGlow treatments, each spaced three to four weeks apart. After this initial series, your results can last up to about eight weeks. Touch-up treatments every three to four months can help you to maintain your smooth, bright DiamondGlow results.

Bottom Line: Is DiamondGlow Worth It?

DiamondGlow is a gentle, yet effective skin treatment that doesn’t require any needles or downtime and can be suitable for people with any skin type who are looking to treat a dull skin, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, clogged pores, or acne. In a clinical study, 100% of patients said they noticed cleaner, firmer, and more radiant skin after their DiamondGlow facial.
