At the R Medical Spa at Renaissance Plastic Surgery, we’re all about helping your skin look its best, whether that’s through fractional laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or a facial. That’s why patients come from all across the St. Louis area for the calming facial rejuvenation options we offer.
In that line, we’re proud to offer DiamondGlow™ skin resurfacing, an amazing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion into a single non-invasive treatment.
What is DiamondGlow skin resurfacing?
DiamondGlow™ skin resurfacing is more than a facial, but less than CO2 laser skin resurfacing. But it provides the benefits to your skin of those treatments without any downtime.
The secret to DiamondGlow’s effectiveness is the patented recessed diamond tip in the DiamondGlow™ wand. Instead of relying on chemical exfoliation, as in a facial or peel, the diamond tip gently removes the top layer of the skin, delivering next-level resurfacing that deeply cleans and rejuvenates the skin. At the same time, Skin-Medica® Pro-Infusion serums are infused onto the skin when your pores are still open and at their most receptive state.
What are the benefits of DiamondGlow skin resurfacing treatments?
DiamondGlow™ treatments are completely customized to the patient. We choose from six DiamondGlow™ diamond tips to suit your skin type and condition. Each tip is specifically designed for maximum efficacy and exfoliation.
That handles the exfoliation and deep cleaning. At the same time, we infuse a variety of SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums onto your skin. As with the tip variation, these infusions are highly customizable to address your specific skin concerns. These are the five infusion serums we use:
- SkinMedica® TNS Advanced+ — This serum targets coarse wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, enhancing tone and texture.
- SkinMedica® Skin Brightening — Patented Lumixyl® peptide brightens the skin, improving the appearance of uneven pigmentation.
- SkinMedica® Ultra Hydrating — An infusion of hyaluronic acid to rehydrate and smooth the skin.
- SkinMedica® Vitamin C — A deep dose of antioxidants to rejuvenate and protect the skin.
- SkinMedica® Pore Clarifying — Powerfully addresses imperfections, promoting clearer skin. This serum is ideal for acne-prone skin.
A single DiamondGlow™ treatment enhances clarity and the luminosity of your skin. It leaves your skin instantly dewy, brighter, and infused with nourishing SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serum. From there, additional treatments build your results. And DiamondGlow™ does this without any downtime or recovery.
Am I a candidate for DiamondGlow skin resurfacing?
These are completely non-invasive treatments. They are great for all skin tones and types. Research has shown that 100 percent of patients experience immediate satisfaction with DiamondGlow™ treatments, saying they received a “deep clean” and that their “skin feels firmer” and “looks more radiant.” Another 95 percent say these are “enjoyable” treatments and that their skin feels plumper afterward.
The reality is, if you’d like to improve your skin, you’re a perfect candidate for DiamondGlow™ at R Medical Spa.
The only patients who cannot have these procedures are those with active skin infections.
How is a DiamondGlow skin resurfacing treatment done?
We begin your DiamondGlow™ session by thoroughly cleansing your facial skin. Then we select the diamond tip that matches your unique needs. We also select the SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serum that will be delivered throughout the session.
We take the DiamondGlow wand and move it across your facial skin. Built with innovative 3x1™ technology, the wand simultaneously exfoliates, extracts debris, and infuses the skin with your custom serum. We keep making passes with the wand until we’ve completely covered your entire face, including sensitive areas that are off-limits to more invasive treatments.
Each DiamondGlow™ session takes just 30 minutes.
How many DiamondGlow skin resurfacing treatments will I need?
At R Medical Spa, we usually recommend a series of four to six treatments to get your skin really headed in the right direction. These are spaced at two-week intervals. From there maintenance sessions are a good plan moving forward. Frequency depends upon your individual goals.
How long will the results from my DiamondGlow session last?
That depends on your age. The average skin cycle is 5 to 6 weeks for the complete turnover of our skin cells. In our late teens, this process only needs 14-21 days, but the turnover slows as we age; that’s why our skin begins to look duller and duller. In our 40s and 50s, our skin cycle slows to 45-60 days.
Boosting your exfoliation and delivering deep cleaning, while infusing the skin at the same time, reduces your skin cycle and rejuvenates the skin for a period of weeks.
Is there any downtime or recovery after a DiamondGlow session? Are there any risks?
No. Your skin may look a little red due to the exfoliation and slight vacuum pressure, but that resolves quickly. You can get right back to work or your normal routine.
There aren’t any risks involved. These are completely non-invasive, non-ablative treatments.
