17 Feb Both DiamondGlow and HydraFacial Make NewBeauty “Next Level Facial” List
DiamondGlow and HydraFacial are both available at RefinedMD, and both made the list of NewBeauty’s Next Level Facial list, because they are both “totally worth it.” They are similar in many regards, but DiamondGlow uses genuine crushed diamond tips for an exfoliation and extraction experience like no other. If you don’t have active acne and/or open lesions on the skin, DiamondGlow is considered the gold (er, diamond?) standard in luxury facials. It’s a serious skin saver, especially during transitional months when seasons are changing and skin starts to freak out a little bit.
Both of these facials are 3-in-1 procedures that require no downtime and take just 30 minutes for a full treatment. They involve exfoliating the skin, extracting gunk from pores, and infusing the skin with medical-grade products. However, the DiamondGlow treatment is exclusively paired with SkinMedica products, one of the most reputable of medical-grade lines. The exact topicals for you will be selected by your provider before the treatment begins. Some of the most popular options include Ultra Hydrating, Vitamin C, Skin Brightening, Pore Clarifying, and of course the famed TNS Advanced+. These products typically sell for hundreds of dollars (and they, too, are totally worth it), but we understand that you might want to test them out before committing to a bottle of your own. A DiamondGlow facial is a great way to do this and you will instantly see the difference that medical grade products make, especially when paired with an in-office luxury facial.
Benefits of Diamonds
The NewBeauty team tested out all of the facials they listed. According to one of the DiamondGlow users, she says “I actually got compliments on my skin for days afterward, which is a true testament to how well it worked.” Through the DiamondGlow experience, she said she realized she needed to do more than a weekly self-care skin care routine. “This facial treatment was a game changer and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is in need of a refresh but isn’t ready for a more invasive treatment.” DiamondGlow is totally non-invasive, with no needles necessary, and yet the results are stunning. It’s also accessible, with many clients opting for monthly treatments to sustain results.
DiamondGlow is an excellent choice for those struggling with acne (as long as there are no open lesions), wrinkles, dullness, and fine lines. If you want to keep the results longer, upgrading your at-home skin care regimen is a must. Oftentimes, clients decide to get their own bottle of SkinMedica TNS Advanced+ serum, which NewBeauty rates a “10 out of 10.” There’s a reason so many people have fallen in love with this do-it-all topical that can help you turn back the clock and amp up your clarity and glow.
HydraFacial is similar to DiamondGlow in many ways, but it does not use genuine crushed diamond tips. It’s also described as a “wet vac” facial and, as such, may be used on skin that could use a less aggressive option than DiamondGlow. The NewBeauty user describes it as “so gentle that I wasn’t worried about having a negative reaction or flare-up.” This particular user struggles with both keratosis pilaris bumps and rosacea, so has understandably been wary about in-office facials. However, she reports “I loved how clean my face felt following the treatment, like all of my impurities were sucked away by the machine.”
True to its name, the HydraFacial is all about moisturizing. One of the best parts of the treatment is being able to see all of the debris, dirt, and gunk it removes, which is conveniently trapped in a transparent chamber. Faces are always cleansed in-office prior to the treatment, so you know what you see in the chamber is what was embedded deep in the skin and pores. “The boost of moisture is a huge benefit—I felt like it lasted for days,” says the NewBeauty tester. She also says that of the handful of facials she’s had in her lifetime, “having a HydraFacial and chatting with the aesthetician made me realize that even though I had sensitive skin, I could still benefit from treatments.” At-home hydrating and moisturizing medical-grade serums are a great way to enhance and extend the results of a HydraFacial.
