Just 1 DiamondGlow® session enhances clarity and luminosity. You’ll love your instantly dewy, brighter skin, infused with nourishing SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums. But even better, you’ll see continued improvement with each treatment.
The six DiamondGlow® diamond tips allow your Esthetician to customize your treatment to suit your skin. Each tip is specifically designed for maximum efficacy and exfoliation for specific skin concerns.
What happens during a DiamondGlow treatment?
This facial combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion—three key facial steps. That includes buffing away old, dead skin cells; removing dirt and oil from pores, and applying a potent serum that can now more easily penetrate the skin. There are six diamond tips, to allow the treatment to be customized to suit your skin. That same handpiece simultaneously uses pneumatic force (aka vacuum suction) to clear away old cells and other debris from within pores, eliminating blackheads.
As your surface skin is buffed away and your pores are cleared, the handpiece delivers the serum into your newly open pores.
Which DiamondGlow serum should you choose?
Topical skin-care serums are known for their ability to deliver powerful active ingredients to the skin, to effect targeted change. Each of the SkinMedica Pro-Infusion serums used during a DiamondGlow treatment is formulated to treat specific conditions.
You’ll have these serum options:
Together you and your Esthetician can choose a serum that best suits your skin goals and concerns.
What can I expect after a DiamondGlow treatment?
You’ll see increased radiance and suppleness immediately after each DiamondGlow facial. Pores will be unclogged, so your skin should feel clean and look clearer. Your skin will be smoother and have a beautiful glow to match.
How often is a DiamondGlow treatment recommended?
We recommend 1-2 treatments per month to see continued improvement and glowing results. Your Esthetician will determine your personalized treatment plan.
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently exfoliate your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer and revealing healthier, more radiant skin underneath. This type of skin rejuvenation helps minimize light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks.
Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive cosmetic resurfacing skin procedure to give a smoother, radiant, and flawless complexion. A specialized blade removes the top layer of the skin. Add this treatment before any facial to see optimal results for a polished and perfect appearance. The results are incredible looking years younger!
Does Vellous hair grow back after Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is most commonly known for removing that unsightly fine layer of hair, but it doesn’t trigger thicker or darker hair regrowth.
Twelve to twenty-four hours are recommended before applying makeup.
Avoid manual exfoliants for three to five days.
What is the Celluma Light Therapy?
The Celluma light therapy is an anti-aging LED red and blue light therapy to promote collagen and combat acne, inflammation, under-eye wrinkles, and those pesky fine lines for healthy glowing skin. LED light therapy treatments are non-invasive, painless, and require no downtime. This treatment is for all skin types, and clients can return to regular activity immediately after the treatment.
Low-level-light therapy or photobiomodulation is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. It promotes a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate repair and replenish damaged skin cells, and stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation.
