DiamondGlow is the Perfect Spring Treatment—Here’s Why

DiamondGlow quickly became a celeb-favorite treatment thanks to its 3-in-1 approach and genuine crushed diamond tips. It’s the ultimate in luxury, and available at RefinedMD so you can achieve glowing, baby-smooth skin in just 30 minutes. It lives up to its name, equipped with a variety of different diamond tips that your provider will select for you based on your skin and your goals. In just half an hour, DiamondGlow exfoliates, extracts, and infuses skin with medical-grade topicals for a total refresh. It’s gentle enough that it can be used up to twice per month and there’s no downtime required. Many clients get DiamondGlow the morning of a big event to ensure their skin is as gorgeous as possible.

Every DiamondGlow treatment is going to be different because your skin is an organ. It’s constantly changing, and its needs evolve. The appointment begins with a skin assessment and discussion with our expert provider on your goals. The exfoliation portion of DiamondGlow is performed with genuine crushed diamonds on the tip of the wand, hand-selected to best remove debris and dead skin cells from the surface. To optimize DiamondGlow, many patients opt for dermaplaning before the facial. Dermaplaning is a means of expertly removing peach fuzz, dead skin cells, and debris with a specialized scalpel. In-office exfoliation can—and often should be—part of a regular maintenance treatment.

The Importance of Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the Goldilocks of skin care. Too much or too little isn’t good for you. It’s very easy to over-exfoliate, especially if you do it at home (pro tip: never use DiamondGlow at home, as it is not even legally available to non-medical professionals). Lack of exfoliation can also be problematic and even cause or exacerbate skin issues like acne. When you have too many dead skin cells resting on the surface, this can trap harmful bacteria and also make skin look dull and make you look older than you are. On average, most clients opt for monthly DiamondGlow sessions.

Extraction of the pores is a kind of exfoliation, but also an entirely different beast. This is the second step in a DiamondGlow facial. The device removes gunk from pores, which instantly makes them appear smaller (bear in mind that pores don’t actually grow and shrink in size, but rather will look bigger when they are clogged). This also leads to smoother-looking skin and a clearer, brighter appearance. Together, exfoliation, extraction (and perhaps dermaplaning) prepares the skin for the final step in a DiamondGlow facial: infusion of medical-grade topicals.

What You Put on Your Skin Matters

At the bare minimum, everyone needs a quality moisturizer and sunscreen. Many people, especially as they get older, will also benefit from various serums just for their unique concerns. You have to go medical-grade if you want the best results. Only medical-grade products are legally able to have the strongest ingredients in the highest doses. Medical-grade products are better even than so-called luxury skin care products you might find in department stores. We’ll work with you to select the right products for your skin.

However, a great way to test out new-to-you medical-grade products is during a DiamondGlow facial. Your provider will discuss their selection with you before your treatment begins. Medical-grade products always give the best results, but they can work overtime at the end of a DiamondGlow session because there is no debris or gunk sitting on the skin or hiding in the pores. This means that topicals can go deeper and do better work.

What to Expect After DiamondGlow

The results of DiamondGlow are immediate with no side effects. Skin may appear a bit flushed for one hour after the treatment, similar to a sun-kissed look. The results from DiamondGlow last an average of 2 – 4 weeks, although the long-term benefits of ensuring skin is clear, healthy, and cared for is accumulative. Many clients get DiamondGlow “just” for special events, but many others quickly fall in love with the treatment and consider it a monthly must. How you utilize DiamondGlow is up to you.
