Excellent Exfoliation

Dead skin cells, debris, and clogged pores—oh, my! The surface of our skin (which is the biggest organ we have) “faces” a constant onslaught of attacks and could use a little TLC. Exfoliating the skin’s surface helps us remove all the junk that’s making it look dull and lifeless, and can even help to promote collagen induction. There are a few treatment options available at RefinedMD for exfoliation, including DiamondGlow, microneedling, chemical peels, and facials.

DiamondGlow has a 100% “worth it” rating on RealSelf thanks to its gorgeous results, being suitable for all skin types, and having no downtime. Previously known as DermalInfusion, the name change for this resurfacing treatment is due to the latest technology, including a genuine diamond tip for ultimate rejuvenation. It works by exfoliating, extracting, and infusing the skin with customized serums for incredible results.

The DiamondGlow Experience

You’ll see great results after just one DiamondGlow treatment, but most people benefit from a series of 4 – 6 treatments spaced about two weeks apart for the best results. Every treatment is personalized just for you, creating a pain-free experience that takes just half an hour. You’ll see an immediate glow, feel silky soft texture, and see why diamonds are everyone’s best friend. However, also keep in mind that the immediate results aren’t the final results!

It will take 1 – 2 months for the skin cells to totally turn over and reveal all of the new skin below the surface. It’s a progressive treatment in many ways, and can quickly become a favorite part of your routine. There are no limits to how many DiamondGlow treatments you can have each year, so as long as you take a break every couple of weeks, you can consider this a luxury treat year-round.

Microneedling Madness

Want to take your DiamondGlow to the next level? Pair it with microneedling—or opt for microneedling as a standalone treatment. The technology behind microneedling has been practiced for over 100 years. It works by creating thousands of micro-channels (also known as micro-injuries) in the skin’s surface. It’s a form of collagen induction therapy that “tells” the body to ramp up collagen synthesis at the treatment site.

However, those little injuries also make the skin ideal for soaking up customized topicals. You can have a microneedling session at the same time as DiamondGlow to really prep the skin for the infusion part of the treatment. You can also opt for topicals applied right after your microneedling session. Microneedling does not offer immediate results and is a strictly progressive treatment. You’ll start to see improved tone and texture a few weeks after each session, and microneedling is suitable as a monthly treatment.

Facials and Chemical Peels

There are seemingly endless types of chemical peels, but all fall into the light/superficial, medium, or deep categories. A light or medium chemical peel hand-selected just for your skin and goals is a great way to clear up imperfections ranging from hyperpigmentation to lines and wrinkles. It’s a concoction of chemicals that literally peels away the top layer(s) of the skin’s surface to reveal gorgeous, youthful skin below the surface. Light peels require virtually no downtime, and many clients feel comfortable going about their daily lives after a medium peel. However, it is paramount to up your sun protection regimen after a chemical peel since the “new” skin is very susceptible to sun damage.

Prefer something a little gentler? A facial individualized just for you is a great treat! We offer medical-grade products to complete your facial so you can see for yourself what a difference the best ingredients make. Facials come in a nearly endless variety of customizations so no two appointments are ever the same.
