DiamondGlow® Treatment from U.S. Dermatology Partners

What Is DiamondGlow®?

When you look in the mirror, are words like “vibrant” and “radiant” the first ones that come to mind when describing your appearance? Many people would see their skin as dull, dry, or uneven. Most have small imperfections in skin tone and texture or clogged pores that they would like to improve. Fortunately, an innovative treatment from U.S. Dermatology Partners can promote healthy, glowing skin with little to no downtime.

DiamondGlow® is a next-level, noninvasive skin-resurfacing treatment, designed to work with SkinMedica® advanced skincare products.

DiamondGlow® is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that features the unique 3x1TM Technology that removes dead cells to stimulate skin renewal, deeply cleanses and clears debris from pores, and infuses the skin with nourishing SkinMedica® active ingredients. Whether your skin is thin or coarse in texture, the microdermabrasion treatment is adjusted to your needs. Another customizable feature is the SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serum. Your provider will choose from different serums that are specifically designed to revitalize, brighten, hydrate, boost antioxidant protection, and clarify pores. This treatment refreshes and nourishes the skin to reveal the more clear, vibrant, smoother skin below. Most people notice benefits immediately after treatment, which continue to improve over the following days. DiamondGlow® treatment is only available in offices with dermatologists and other medical professionals. It isn’t available as a spa treatment, though it may leave you feeling soothed and relaxed like you just took a trip to your favorite day spa.

Who Is a Good Candidate for DiamondGlow®?

Because DiamondGlow® is a fast, effective, and noninvasive cosmetic dermatology treatment option, it’s an ideal skin-enhancing solution for many patients.

DiamondGlow® is great for people who wish to diminish the appearance of any of the following:

  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Dull, dry skin
  • Hyperpigmentation, including pigment from healed acne
  • Congested skin, clogged pores

Because DiamondGlow® treatments are highly customizable, they are typically safe and effective even for those people who have sensitive skin. Patients with active skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, and inflamed acne should consult with their dermatologist before receiving DiamondGlow® treatment.

How Does DiamondGlow® Work?

The innovative DiamondGlow® procedure is usually completed in 30 minutes. The key to the success of DiamondGlow treatment is the unique 3X1™ Technology and the award-winning SkinMedica® skincare product line.

The 3 rapid-sequence steps in the 3X1™ Technology are:

  • (1) the patented recessed diamond tip wand exfoliates, removing dead cells and stimulating skin renewal;
  • (2) the flow of fluid and adjustable suction deeply cleanses and removes debris from pores; and
  • (3) while the skin and pores are most receptive, the nourishing SkinMedica® active ingredients are infused into the skin.

During the exfoliation stage, your dermatologist and trained staff are able to choose from a range of diamond tips or a pore-clarifying brush. Each of the available DiamondGlow® diamond tips was designed to target specific problems; by customizing the choice of tip and intensity of the procedure, your provider ensures that you benefit fully from each treatment.

Your Pro-Infusion serum is also tailored to your needs to optimize your results. The range of brilliantly-formulated SkinMedica® serums that may be used as part of your DiamondGlow® treatment at U.S. Dermatology Partners include:

  • SkinMedica® TNS® Advanced+ – includes the award-winning growth-factor blend, multiple health-promoting marine, and botanical extracts, and gentle rejuvenating alpha-hydroxy acid along with hydrating hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5. This highly-enriched serum targets wrinkles and sagging skin while enhancing tone and texture.
  • SkinMedica® Skin Brightening – brightening ingredients include a patented Lumixyl® peptide, licorice root extract, and vitamin C to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone while hydrating with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5.
  • SkinMedica® Ultra Hydrating – deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 delivers an immediate dewy moisture boost that is amplified by nourishing, calming botanicals and marine extracts, such as aloe vera, apple, lentil, Artemisia, Laminaria, and chamomile.
  • SkinMedica® Vitamin C – with multiple antioxidants to boost protection against oxidative damage while nourishing and calming the skin; includes vitamins C & E, marine and botanical extracts including green tea, grape seed, licorice root as well as hydrating vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid.
  • SkinMedica® Pore Clarifying – this deep-cleansing treatment is a great option for acne-prone skin and congested, prominent pores; a natural, gentle form of vitamin A (Bakuchiol) and salicylic acid concentrate in oil glands, reduce bacteria and help to discourage future breakouts by clarifying pores.

Following the procedure, patients can apply skincare (sunscreen, makeup) and return to their regular routine. There may be some minor irritation or redness, but for most patients, the skin looks immediately smoother, healthier, and more radiant. In addition to the in-office SkinMedica® infusion, patients can also continue to achieve skin improvement by incorporating SkinMedica® products into their daily skincare routine. Your dermatologist can help you select the right SkinMedica® products as well as other products tailored to your needs to optimize the health and appearance of your skin. Many SkinMedica® products are available for purchase from our sister site, Derm Skincare.

Are There Side Effects of DiamondGlow® Treatment?

In most cases, patients have no noticeable side effects following DiamondGlow® treatment. Some individuals may notice very mild symptoms like light skin redness for the first hour or so after their procedure (rarely longer); most often, people notice that their skin looks better almost immediately after their DiamondGlow® treatments; in fact, some patients schedule a DiamondGlow® treatment before special occasions.

Because of the in-depth research that has gone into formulating the special SkinMedica® serums, the risk of irritation and allergy is low; notably, the serums are free of sulfates/sulfites, parabens, and fragrances. However, if you do notice side effects like swelling, itching, persistent redness, or severe irritation, you may be experiencing an allergic reaction. You should talk to your dermatologist right away.

How Long Will DiamondGlow® Results Last?

A single DiamondGlow® treatment offers immediate results that continue to improve for several days after treatment. The results of DiamondGlow® treatment are cumulative, so it’s helpful to continue regular treatments to optimize the results. Depending on the individual’s needs, re-treatment can be performed once or twice a month. Regular re-treatment, especially when coupled with customized skincare products as part of at-home care, helps skin to look and feel clear and radiant, vibrant and glowing.
