The Diamond Glow experience is on a level all its own. The device provides a deep cleanse while infusing the skin with SkinMedica serums to improve skin texture, tone, and hydration. Diamond Glow uses a closed-loop vacuum with a diamond tip to exfoliate and remove dull, dead skin cells. This treatment can address issues such as acne, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and other minor skin blemishes. The device multi-tasks in cleaning, stimulating, and infusing your pores with ingredients that penetrate the skin deeply. And they deserve it! Our pores are subject to constant stresses from hormones, our natural production of oils, and the changes in skin elasticity as we age.  These factors all lead to clogged, enlarged visible pores and compromised skin texture. The Diamond Glow device simultaneously clears and opens the pores, as well as allowing for better absorption of our nourishing serums. You’ll leave our office with brighter, smoother skin that will be hard not to love! And unlike other skin rejuvenation treatments, only one Diamond Glow session is needed to see skin that is significantly more vibrant and luminous.
Diamond Glow’s popularity is easy to understand! Patients enjoy the benefits of the device’s efficient exfoliation, and cleansing, but that’s just the start. The Diamond Glow facial experience is customized for you. Your aesthetician has a range of diamond tips to choose from to offer you just the right level of exfoliation. There’s also an entire suite of SkinMedica Pro Infusion serums to address different skin concerns. These medical-grade products include an antioxidant-laden Vitamin C serum, a brightening serum, a clarifying serum, and an advanced anti-wrinkle and firming serum. Diamond Glow lets patients address unique and combination skin concerns in one relaxing facial. And, it’s able to address the areas matter most when it comes to rejuvenation.

We want you to come to your appointment stress-free. Unlike other procedures, the Diamond Glow experience does not require much preparation on your part. Dr. Poulos only recommends a few, easy things to do beforehand. They include:
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Do not be out in the sun for long periods a few days prior. If you must be out, please use a good sunblock with a high SPF.
- Stop using Retinoids: Refrain from using retinoids for at least 3 days prior.
- Show up to your appointment with a clean face: Make sure it’s makeup and moisturizer-free.
When you schedule your Diamond Glow facial, our staff will recommend the best way to prepare your skin so that you can look forward to optimal results.
This spa day is all about you. We’ll get you settled into your treatment room where you’ll be placed on a reclining chair. Our highly trained aestheticians will move the Diamond Glow wand back and forth around your face in a smooth, gentle fashion. The experience works in a three-step process of exfoliation, extraction, and infusion. 
- Exfoliation: The diamond tip does its part to remove dead and damaged skin.
- Extraction: A high-power suction in the device deep cleans the skin and pores.
- Infusion: The SkinMedica Pro-Infusion serum that’s right for you will be applied, and penetrate deep into the skin.
The process should take less than an hour to complete.
Recovering Your Glow
One of the benefits of the Diamond Glow experience is that there are no lengthy recovery times. Patients can leave the office as soon as they’re done and return to their normal daily routine. There are a few things to note about your skin after your Diamond Glow Facial Treatment.
After a Diamond Glow facial:
You may experience some temporary redness.
Immediately after the treatment, patients may have red/pink skin around the treatment site. This is perfectly normal. Please allow 12-48 hours for the uneven skin tone to resolve on its own.
Please avoid taking hot showers, saunas, and jacuzzis for a few days. The exfoliation process makes the fresh skin mildly sensitive to hot temperatures.
We advise patients to use a high SPF sunblock daily for the next week to ensure their results are protected.
Temporarily refrain from using other skin treatments
You should avoid waxing, laser work, or other exfoliating treatments for seven days after treatment. Additional treatments after your Diamond Glow will irritate your fresh, sensitive skin.
Your results will include noticeably smoother, dewy, more radiant skin. And, you can come back for more! The Diamond Glow facial can be performed regularly to maintain the health of your skin. (4)
