02 Mar DiamondGlow and HydraFacial Make The ZoeReport Top List of No Downtime Treatments
Everyone wants gorgeous, healthy, glowing skin—but who has time for downtime? At RefinedMD, we offer a variety of non-invasive treatments with little to no downtime for those with busy schedules (or who just don’t want to deal with a recovery period). But which one is the best? According to both The ZoeReport and our skin care experts, DiamondGlow and HydraFacial top the list. DiamondGlow gives the best results for those who do not have open lesions or current severe acne breakouts. Made by Allergan, it’s a 3-in-1 proprietary process that takes just 30 minutes.
Using a variety of genuine crushed diamond tips, the DiamondGlow treatment simultaneously exfoliates, extracts debris from pores, and finally infuses skin with medical-grade skin care products. DiamondGlow exclusively pairs with SkinMedica, one of the leading medical-grade skin care product lines available. This makes every experience one of a kind because your provider hand-picks the topicals (and the diamond-tipped end used) your skin needs in the moment. Plus, it’s a great way to try out a variety of SkinMedica products without committing immediately to an entire bottle.
A HydraFacial is similar to DiamondGlow in many ways, but takes a “wet” approach—making it more appropriate for those with active acne. However, without the crushed diamond ends, the exfoliation factor isn’t quite as thorough. HydraFacial also offers a 3-in-1 approach, and one of the perks of this option is that you can actually see all of the gunk that is removed from the skin thanks to the clear vacuum chamber. Skin is cleansed and prepped before both of these facials, so you know that anything removed during the treatment has been stuck to your face for quite some time.
HydraFacial also ends with an infusion of medical-grade products, but it is not exclusively used with SkinMedica. Instead, your provider will pair you with a variety of different topical products selected for your skin’s needs in real time.
Why 3-in-1 Works So Well
All skin needs routine exfoliation, extraction, as well as daily use of at-home topical products. On average, most clients fall in love with these facials and opt for them once per month. Skin is instantly more supple, clearer, glowing, and radiant no matter which facial you choose. Of course, the right topicals are a must for anyone, but they work better when there isn’t the barrier of debris and clogged pores in the way. Right after a facial is the ideal time to try out new or favorite products because they can best penetrate the skin.
Both of these treatments take just half an hour, but you can also pair them with other treatments too—like dermaplaning. Only dermaplaning removes the peach fuzz and superficial layer of skin so that you enjoy a baby-smooth result. It’s also a fantastic way to prepare for DiamondGlow or HydraFacial. When you’re not dealing with peach fuzz, you can get better exfoliation, extraction, and infusion.
Which One is for You?
In most cases, we recommend DiamondGlow (unless you have open lesions). It’s a celebrity favorite for a reason. Whether you’re getting ready for a special event or are looking to sustain results month to month, it’s easy to fit into any schedule and gives you the real diamond luxury experience. Unlike other, traditional facials, DiamondGlow and HydraFacial go above and beyond for results that are both immediate and lasting.
You can get either of these facials the day of a big event and trust that there will be no lingering redness or downtime. As a bonus, those who wear makeup will experience smoother and better results with regular facial treatments. It’s possible to get skin that is smoother, healthier, and brighter without spending a lot of time or a long recovery period. If you’re still unsure of which one is best for you, a consultation is a great way to find out (and the procedure can immediately follow).
