how diamond glow worksWhat Is DiamondGlow Hydra Facial?

DiamondGlow, formerly Dermalinfusion, is a fully customizable face, lip, eye area, and body skin resurfacing technology. In one 30-minute treatment, it extracts, exfoliates, and treats by infusing SkinMedica serums precisely while pores are optimally receptive. You’ll experience deeply cleaned and hydrated, glowing skin with just one treatment or facial, and long-term you’ll continue to see improvement to photodamage, hyperpigmentation, skin-tone evenness, tactile roughness, and radiance.

DiamondGlow Hydra Facial utilizes 3X1™ technology that simultaneously suctions dirt and oil from pores, exfoliates skin, and infuses SkinMedica serums.

The entire treatment is customized to you and your skin. One of six diamond tips is used, the levels of suction are minutely controlled, and one of SkinMedica’s market-leading serums is selected to specifically target your main skin concern.

SkinMedica diamond glow serumsBecause of the quality formulation of SkinMedica’s serums, and the effectiveness of DiamondGlow’s technology, their infusion penetrates deep into your skin’s stem cell layer and performs for 72 hours, hydrating and targeting your specific skin issues such as pigmentation, dryness, acne, or dullness.

Glow! That’s a benefit we all love. But because this treatment is transformative, you’ll also benefit from reduction of fine lines, signs of aging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, pore size, and from improved tone and texture.

Additionally, you’ll benefit from:
• a customized serum that treats your skincare concerns,
• experienced clinical estheticians,
• no downtime, and
• a clinical treatment in a relaxing spa environment.

A benefit from a DiamondGlow treatment at higher settings, usually for body, is improved skin elasticity and lymphatic drainage.

Savings always make a girl glow! A discounted SkinMedica product is included with every DiamondGlow facial.

What happens during treatment?

You’ll relax and feel comfortable in our luxurious treatment bed. Some people feel a mild abrasion, and nearly all patients in a clinical survey said it was an enjoyable experience. 30 minutes later, you’ll walk out with your skin feeling plump, hydrated and glowing.

If you opt for a DiamondGlow facial, you’ll also enjoy massage, steam, and mask.

Post-treatment care or downtime?

For one to two hours after treatment, you skin may be mildly pink. If you are concerned, we can send you on your way with a gentle tinted sunscreen to protect and tone down any color.

Keep the glow going at home! In a clinical trial, those who supported their DiamondGlow facial with a SkinMedica at-home regimen showed even greater improvement to skin roughness, radiance, hyperpigmentation, photodamage, and skin tone unevenness.

How long until I see results?

Immediate skin radiance was experienced by 90% of patients right after treatment, hydration experienced by 89%, and plumper skin by 95%. (SkinMedica clinical study.)diamond glow patient satisfaction is high

Two months after your appointment, your skin cells with have turned over, and you’ll see full results.

Because the infused serum remains active deep in your skin for 72 hours after your appointment, you can expect to see improvement continue. Longer-term, results can be optimized with your home care regiment, and of course, sunscreen – always sunscreen!

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, three appointments about five weeks apart leads to optimal results, and then maintenance four times a year.

Which areas can be treated?

The majority of DiamondGlow Hydra Facial treatments are facials which includes the front of the neck, and the eye and lip areas. DiamondGlow devices also include a body hand piece and prescribed therapy for back, chest/décolletage, abdomen, arms, legs, buttocks, and feet.

Can this treatment be used as part of a combo therapy?

DiamondGlow can help prepare the skin so that results from procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels are maximized to help you achieve the best possible outcomes. DiamondGlow can also be used after other procedures to aide in lymphatic drainage.

What is the science?

diamond glow headsThe stratum corneum is your dead, outer layer of skin. It can prevent maximum absorption of your topical products and hinder helpful skin metabolism which helps skin turn over from old to new.

Like other microdermabrasion treatments, DiamondGlow’s exfoliation targets and removes the stratum corneum to reveal brighter skin underneath. But better than other microdermabrasion treatments, all debris is simultaneously suctioned away and while pores are most open and receptive, the powerful serums are infused.

Hayes Valley is the best! Kate did an incredible job with Dysport removing the wrinkles from my forehead, Sandra gave me great abs and glutes with Emsculpt, and Linda gave me my youthful facial structure back with Sculptra. These women are truly amazing. So glad that I found them!

Sheila and Linda took great care of me and I look younger and vibrant.  I do not trust anyone else for injectables.  Linda is careful, thoughtful, and respectful of one’s budget. I have followed her from Marin into SF and I will continue to follow her where ever she practices.
