How Long is the Healing Process After DiamondGlow™ Treatments?
There’s no denying the remarkable results that can be achieved with skin rejuvenation treatments. However, many of these treatments require an extended healing period, which can be particularly disruptive and inconvenient. For patients who prefer a gentler – yet still effective – solution for restoring a brighter, firmer, healthier complexion, the DiamondGlow facial may be an exciting option. At Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA, our team of board-certified plastic surgeons and aesthetic experts are proud to offer the revolutionary DiamondGlow facial to help patients achieve the skin of their dreams more conveniently than ever before. In this blog, we’ll discuss what patients can expect during and after a DiamondGlow treatment, including if they’ll need to plan for any downtime.
How can a DiamondGlow facial help my skin?
DiamondGlow facial treatments can help to improve a wide range of skin concerns, making them a suitable option for virtually anyone. Some of the most common skin problems that can be addressed with a DiamondGlow facial include:
- Rough skin
- Oily skin
- Dry skin
- Patchy skin
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Dull skin
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild skin laxity
How is a DiamondGlow facial performed?
The DiamondGlow facial is performed utilizing a specialized diamond-tipped wand, which is passed evenly over the skin. During treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated, and the process concludes with a customized selection of nourishing SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion being infused into the pores. A DiamondGlow facial takes about 30 – 45 minutes to perform and does not cause discomfort or damage to the skin.
Will my skin need to recover after a DiamondGlow facial?
Because the DiamondGlow facial is noninvasive and does not use harsh chemicals or other damaging products, there is virtually no downtime required. While patients may experience some mild redness after treatment, most people are able to resume their normal daily activities virtually immediately after a DiamondGlow facial. Still, patients should avoid direct sun exposure, keep the skin moisturized, and use sunscreen.
When will I see results after a DiamondGlow facial?
Many patients notice a visibly brighter and healthier-looking complexion as soon as one day after treatment, though it typically takes about three days for the full effects of a DiamondGlow facial to become apparent. Again, with virtually no downtime or healing required, patients can feel confident about their complexion much sooner than with other treatments.
How long does a DiamondGlow facial last?
The DiamondGlow facial is designed to improve the health and vibrancy of your skin with consistent treatments. To further boost the effects of a DiamondGlow facial and extend the life of your treatment, we typically recommend pairing your in-office facial with an at-home SkinMedica skin care routine. Following your treatment, our knowledgeable team will curate a custom combination of products tailored to your skin type that can be used regularly at home between office visits to keep your skin looking its best over time.
