Maintaining a youthful glow is challenging to do, especially as you age. Over time, your skin’s natural production of a vital protein, known as collagen, declines. As your collagen production reduces, more lines and wrinkles begin to appear. While the lack of this internal component affects your skin’s integrity, outside forces also take a toll, causing that youthful glow to be more difficult to retain. The sun manipulates your skin’s pigmentation. Dust and pollutants clog your pores. Oils build up, causing acne to appear, which can leave scars behind.
Your skin goes through a lot as you age, and while moisturizers and skincare products may offer some improvement, their solution often is not enough. Your skin’s quality will continue to worsen. Thankfully, aesthetic treatments exist that go a step further by invigorating your skin’s collagen production, making that youthful glow apparent once again. Among these treatments is the age-defying DiamondGlow facial treatment.

What Is DiamondGlow?
DiamondGlow is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves three steps: exfoliation, extraction and infusion. These three steps give your skin a comprehensive treatment that creates a visible improvement.
During the exfoliation step, a diamond-encrusted wand is pressed against your skin to thoroughly exfoliate your skin, exfoliating it of dead skin cells and other impurities that are clogging your pores. The extraction step involves using a high-powered vacuum to remove debris, makeup residue and pollutants that are trapped deep within your skin’s surface and pores. Finally, for the third step, infusion, a specially concocted serum is infused into your skin to address your specific cosmetic concerns. Serum options you will be able to choose from include:
SkinMedica TNS Advanced+ improves skin tone and texture. Patients with lines and wrinkles will find this serum particularly beneficial.
SkinMedica Skin Brightening is perfect for making skin more vibrant. Patients struggling with uneven skin pigmentation will be recommended this serum.
SkinMedica Ultra Hydrating contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance your body produces that maintains skin firmness.
SkinMedica Vitamin C will restore a patient’s skin quality because it consists of a high dose of antioxidants.
SkinMedica Pore Clarifying is perfect for patients struggling with acne. The serum cleanses pores to create a brighter, more vibrant look.
Our licensed and extensively trained medical aestheticians will review your skin’s quality and concerns during an initial consultation to decide which serum will be most effective.
Ideal Candidates for DiamondGlow
DiamondGlow is an ideal treatment if you struggle with any of the following:
- Skin discoloration
- Wrinkles and lines
- Uneven tone and texture
- Dull skin
- Dry skin
- Congested pores
DiamondGlow can be performed on any skin tone. While DiamondGlow can enhance your skin’s appearance significantly, you should maintain realistic expectations. Your treatment results won’t last a lifetime, as time and other factors gradually take a toll on your skin again. Patients are encouraged to receive DiamondGlow treatments in regular intervals if interested in retaining their results.
The DiamondGlow Treatment
In the days before your DiamondGlow treatment, you should avoid direct sunlight, so there is no recent damage or ongoing irritation to your skin’s surface. You should take this precaution at least several days before undergoing your treatment.
Your DiamondGlow treatment will begin with having your skin gently cleansed. DiamondGlow is generally a well-tolerated treatment, so an anesthetic is not necessary. Once prepped, the diamond-encrusted wand is moved evenly across your skin, ridding your skin of impurities and unveiling a healthier complexion. In the process, the vacuum feature of the DiamondGlow will simultaneously extract impurities that are deep below your skin’s surface and trapped in your pores. The specially-formulated SkinMedica serum is then applied to your skin, nourishing your skin’s new layer with vital nutrients to enhance your complexion.

DiamondGlow Recovery and Results
Your DiamondGlow treatment will require no downtime. Immediately after treatment, you can return to normal activities. The treatment can be considered a ‘lunchtime procedure,’ meaning you can undergo it while on your lunch break for work and return right afterward. However, your skin may be a bit red or slightly irritated, but this is a tolerable side effect that goes away after a few hours or days. You will be recommended to avoid direct sun exposure until your skin has fully recovered, so your results are not affected. It will take approximately three days for your DiamondGlow results to be fully realized as your skin’s firmness and complexion gradually improve. Significant improvement for such cosmetic concerns as fine lines, skin dryness, uneven texture and pigmentation will be noticeable. The treatment offers immediate improvements that the specially-concocted serums will support.
A DiamondGlow treatment can create beautiful results after one session. However, patients are encouraged to undergo regular treatments to maintain their results. Usually, patients have a DiamondGlow treatment every two to three weeks. Optimal results are usually attained after four to six weeks of regular treatment.
DiamondGlow at Terrasse Aesthetic Surgery
Unless maintenance procedures and effective skin care products are faithfully utilized, your skin’s integrity will gradually decline due to factors such as reduced collagen production, the sun’s adverse effects, and dust and oils getting clogged in your pores. The result is uneven skin tone and texture, wrinkles and lines forming, and acne becoming prominent.
While a gradual decline is somewhat inevitable, it’s entirely possible to improve your skin’s quality, ultimately reversing these visible cosmetic flaws. DiamondGlow is a rejuvenating treatment that significantly improves your skin’s quality, restoring a youthful and healthy glow. The customizable treatment can be specified to your unique cosmetic concerns.
