DiamondGlow® Facial


Even if you have an excellent at-home skincare routine, some common concerns are best treated through professional services. Diamond Glow Dermalinfusion is a cutting-edge and non-invasive treatment option that is effective for a wide range of concerns, from signs of aging to acne.


Diamond Glow is a microdermabrasion facial treatment that is suitable for all skin types and most skin conditions. The treatment is also known as Dermalinfusion. Diamond Glow uses a combination of a diamond tip to cleanse and exfoliate. At the same time, the procedure delivers tailored skincare ingredients via a serum to the skin, making it a highly versatile treatment option.


  • Texture and dryness
  • Sun Damage or age spots
  • Enlarged or clogged pores


  • Instant results
  • Brighter, glowing skin
  • Smoother feel


Diamond Glow works using a three-step system. First, the diamond tip of the handpiece is guided across the skin for precise exfoliation of dry, dead, and damaged skin cells. Think of it as a way to remove the top layer of skin that can fill pores.

In addition to this mild exfoliation, gentle yet powerful suction is used to deeply cleanse both the skin’s surface and the pores, removing any exfoliated skin cells and blackheads. Finally, SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums are delivered to the skin according to the patient’s needs.

Your treatment specialist will select tailored serums for you to make the treatment most effective. Options include SkinMedica Brightening, Pore Clarifying, Ultra Hydrating, Vitamin C, or the all-new TNS Anti-Aging serums. These topical medications can be combined as needed to reach your ideal results. The average Diamond Glow treatment takes just 30 minutes and requires no downtime.


Diamond Glow can be used to treat a wide range of skin concerns. After receiving a Diamond Glow treatment, patients find that their skin is brighter, smoother, and more even in tone and texture immediately and the skin improves with time. Fine lines are smoother, and the skin appears healthier with unclogged pores.


Because Diamond Glow is a versatile treatment that can be tailored to the patient’s unique needs, it is suitable for nearly any candidate seeking to improve the health and appearance of their skin. This includes all skin types and tones. People with certain medical conditions such as an active infection may not be eligible for Diamond Glow. A custom treatment plan that meets your goals can be created for you after a consultation.


Diamond Glow stands out from other microdermabrasion treatments for one key reason: it’s personalized to your skin and goals. With six Diamond Glow tips to choose from and 5 different SkinMedica serums to infuse, our expert skin rejuvenation specialists tailor every treatment to your needs and skin condition. This three-in-one microdermabrasion procedure is proven to provide people continued improvement in skin appearance for conditions like dryness and fine lines.


This microdermabrasion treatment works on the surface of skin, making it a very safe procedure for the overwhelming majority of patients. In very rare cases, people report tenderness, slight swelling, or redness that goes away within a few hours. In other cases, minor bruising can occur, and we are always on hand to provide medical advice for how to handle certain side effects should they occur after any of our treatments.


Dr Gilpin and his staff are the absolute best and I had an incredible experience with them before, during and after my procedure. They are knowledgeable and caring and I am very grateful for my experience with them!

What should you not do after DiamondGlow?

After your DiamondGlow treatment, you can expect to notice an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and discoloration, roughness, dryness, and dull skin. DiamondGlow treatments serve to deliver skin that appears brighter, fresher, smoother, clearer, and overall healthier. Many patients may experience minimal to mild redness that resolves quickly after treatment.

What should be avoided before DiamondGlow?

We recommend avoiding certain skincare products, such as retinols, tretinoin, or retin-A, as well as exfoliating products for 2-3 days. These types of products can be harsh on the skin and lead to compromised skin, leading to higher risk of post-procedural skin irritation. We recommend discontinuing these products a few days prior to your DiamondGlow facial.

How long do DiamondGlow results last?

You can expect your DiamondGlow results to last for several weeks. You will notice a 72-hour plumping effect after your treatment. You can extend the life of your DiamondGlow results with medical-grade skincare products and routine at-home maintenance.

How often should I do DiamondGlow?

You can typically expect your DiamondGlow results to last approximately 4-6 weeks. We recommend patients come in every 4-6 weeks for optimal skin maintenance. For best results, we recommend continuing a medical-grade skincare regimen in between treatments.

Can I use retinol before DiamondGlow?

We would not recommend using retinol immediately prior to your DiamondGlow treatment. By doing so, this compromises the skin and can lead to more irritation. Should you forget to discontinue your retinol in advance, we can still treat you, we will just opt for a less aggressive diamond tip.

Is DiamondGlow facial safe?

DiamondGlow is considered a painless, safe, and non-invasive procedure. Practically anyone and everyone is a great candidate for a DiamondGlow facial!

Is DiamondGlow better than HydraFacial?

We like to say that HydraFacial is like getting your car washed and DiamondGlow is like getting your car detailed. While they both effectively exfoliate the top layer of dry, dead skin cells, DiamondGlow is a much deeper cleaning and is truly customized to each patients skin concerns.

How many sessions of DiamondGlow are needed?

We typically recommend at least 3 treatments in any DiamondGlow package. However, it is a great skin maintenance treatment to continue throughout the year, especially as your skin changes from season to season.

Does DiamondGlow help with acne scars?

DiamondGlow can help with acne scarring to some degree. We offer other skin resurfacing treatments, such as Morpheus, that are better suited to help with both active acne and acne scarring.

What is the difference between DiamondGlow and microdermabrasion?

While DiamondGlow is similar to microdermabrasion in terms of how it exfoliates the skin, DiamondGlow takes your skin to the next level, as it incorporates extraction of debris from the pores and infusion of nourishing SkinMedica serums.

What is a DiamondGlow treatment?

DiamondGlow is a popular and well-loved treatment in our office. It is a non-invasive skin-resurfacing technology designed to create radiant and healthy-looking skin. DiamondGlow delivers rejuvenation by simultaneously exfoliating, extracting, and infusing the skin. After the procedure, patients have noticed an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and discoloration, roughness, dryness, and dull skin. DiamondGlow treatments serve to deliver skin that appears brighter, fresher, smoother, clearer, and overall healthier.

Is DiamondGlow good for any skin type?

Yes, DiamondGlow is truly a treatment for any and all patients. It is an appropriate treatment for normal, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive skin types. Additionally, it is a colorblind treatment, meaning any Fitzpatrick skin type can receive this rejuvenating treatment.
