25 Jul Allergan Highlights DiamondGlow at 2022 AAD Annual Meeting
The annual American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) convention was held in March of this year, and the makers of DiamondGlow (Allergan) showcased their latest portfolio and new research on leading treatments. According to a spokesperson, “Science is at the core of our work, helping us in our commitment to improve the care of patients.” RefinedMD is proud to offer one of Allergan’s most popular treatments, DiamondGlow, a revolutionary 3-in-1 treatment that features a variety of genuine diamond crushed tips for optimal exfoliation and extractions. Unsurprisingly, learning more about DiamondGlow was a hit at the conference—it’s also in high demand in our office.
DiamondGlow is more than a facial. It simultaneously exfoliates the skin and removes debris while also extracting gunk from the pores. As a form of microdermabrasion, it goes above and beyond what any previous technology has been able to achieve. Optimal exfoliation and extraction preps the skin to best receive medical-grade topicals. Unlike the HydraFacial, which does not use diamonds, DiamondGlow is exclusively paired with SkinMedica products for the third and final stage of the process. SkinMedica is one of the best medical-grade skin care lines. Every DiamondGlow treatment is unique because our skin changes so quickly. The best SkinMedica products for you during one appointment might be different at the next. Plus, a DiamondGlow treatment is a great way to try out SkinMedica products without committing to a purchase a whole bottle just yet. Let’s take a look at some of the products you may be matched with during your treatment.
DiamondGlow and SkinMedica
The signature serum is SkinMedica TNS Advanced+ Serum and is routinely applied during a DiamondGlow treatment. This serum retails for over $200 (price varies based on size) and is full of peptides and growth factors. It is renowned for lightening wrinkles and dark spots while tackling other signs of aging, too. It features a new 2 Tripeptide Complex makeup to smooth and firm the skin along with a rich blend of Spanish Marine extract and Green Microalgae to support collagen production. You’ll also find it full of antioxidants to safeguard your skin from environmental stressors. With this powerful serum, you’ll find that skin visibly lifts and has an improved tone and texture. Studies show that clients self-report looking up to six years younger after continually using the serum for 12 weeks.
SkinMedica Vitamin C Pro-Infusion Serum is another popular topical that caps off a DiamondGlow treatment. It features ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), which is a water-soluble antioxidant naturally found in plants but easily produced as a synthetic version. It also has tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (also Vitamin C), which is a stable and lipid-soluble ester rendition of ascorbic acid. Finally, this product has tocopherol (Vitamin E), which is known to help skin to heal and look more youthful. When this topical is applied, the vitamins are slowly released throughout the day in order to prevent radical damage. Skin will have a better tone, texture, and youthful appearance.
Products to Use with DiamondGlow
The SkinMedica Skin Brightening Pro-Infusion Serum with Lumixyl Peptide visibly brightens the skin while helping to blend and remove the presence of uneven pigmentation. The SkinMedica Pore Clarifying Pro-Infusion Serum targets imperfections while promoting clearer skin. It is especially useful for those who are prone to acne. SkinMedica Ultra Hydrating Pro-Infusion Serum takes on dry skin but is also suitable for all skin types (all skin needs hydration—even “oily” skin). It plumps skin while improving volume with its AcquaCell makeup (a watermelon and apple extract). Just one application yields significant hydration results, which naturally reduces lines and wrinkles. Butylene Glycol penetrates the skin for optimal softening.
DiamondGlow is an appropriate, non-invasive, gentle yet powerful treatment for most people. There are few contraindications, but those with current compromised skin quality (i.e. active breakouts or lesions) should attain healthy skin before any abrasive treatment. Most people find that a monthly DiamondGlow treatment is ideal to get and keep gorgeous results, and the treatment is soft enough that no downtime is required. You can have a DiamondGlow treatment in the morning and look your best for an evening event.
