  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dark spots and hyperpigmentation

Recovery Time





DiamondGlow’s patented diamond-tipped wand manually exfoliates to gently remove dead skin cells and surface debris. This promotes cell renewal and brings new, healthy skin cells to the surface while improving your skin texture.


The DiamondGlow wand effectively extracts impurities, such as dirt and excess oil, from deep within the pores using vacuum suction. This thorough cleansing process helps to unclog pores and reduce the appearance of blackheads and congestion, leading to clearer, healthier-looking skin.


Carefully selected SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums are infused directly into your skin. This deep penetration of nourishing ingredients addresses specific skin concerns and provides targeted treatment, resulting in enhanced skin hydration, brightness and overall rejuvenation.

  2. Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and self-tanners for at least one week before your appointment.
  3. Discontinue the use of retinoids, glycolic acid and other harsh exfoliants at least three days before treatment.
  4. Arrive at your DiamondGlow appointment with clean, makeup-free skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Are Good Candidates for DiamondGlow?

DiamondGlow is suitable for individuals with various skin types and concerns. It’s an excellent option for those seeking a non-invasive, gentle treatment to improve their skin’s overall appearance.

Who Shouldn’t Get a DiamondGlow Facial?

DiamondGlow may not be ideal for individuals with active skin infections, sunburns or open wounds. Schedule your consultation with the experts at The Lifestyle Center to determine if DiamondGlow is the right choice for you.

What Types of Serums Can Be Used for My DiamondGlow Treatment?

There are several SkinMedica serum options available for DiamondGlow treatments. Yours will be tailored to your individual needs:

  1. Pore Clarifying Pro-Infusion Serum: Ideal for acne-prone and congested skin, this serum targets impurities and inflammation.
  2. Even & Correct Advanced Brightening Pro-Infusion Serum: Designed to address hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, this serum enhances brightness and clarity.
  3. HA⁵ Hyaluronic Acid Pro-Infusion Serum: Perfect for dry, dehydrated skin, this serum provides intense hydration and smoothness with five forms of HA.
  4. Vitamin C Pro-Infusion Serum: This antioxidant-rich serum helps protect the skin from environmental damage and promotes a youthful appearance.
  5. TNS Advanced+ Pro-Infusion Serum: Ideal for lax and wrinkled skin, this serum smoothes the skin for improved texture.
Does DiamondGlow Use Actual Diamonds in the Treatment?

Yes, DiamondGlow utilizes real diamonds. The device’s handpiece features a diamond-tipped surface that is used to gently exfoliate the skin during the procedure.

The benefits of using diamond tips in this treatment include:

  1. Precise Exfoliation: Diamonds are known for their hardness and durability, which allows for precise and even exfoliation of the skin. This produces a smoother, more even complexion without causing damage or irritation.
  2. Adjustable Abrasion: Diamond tips come in various grit sizes, allowing the treatment to be customized according to individual skin types and concerns. This ensures the most appropriate level of exfoliation for each client, maximizing results while minimizing discomfort.
  3. Non-abrasive: Unlike other exfoliation methods that may use harsh, abrasive particles, diamond tips glide gently across the skin’s surface, minimizing the risk of micro-tears and irritation.
  4. Hygienic and Reusable: Diamond tips can be easily cleaned and sterilized between treatments, ensuring a hygienic experience for each client. This also makes them an eco-friendly alternative to disposable exfoliating materials.
What Can I Expect During DiamondGlow Recovery?

DiamondGlow recovery is minimal, with most patients requiring no downtime. Here’s what you can expect post-treatment:

  • Mild redness and slight swelling may occur but typically subsides within a few hours.
  • Your skin may feel tight and dry, so make sure to moisturize and stay hydrated.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and wear SPF 30 or higher daily to protect your newly rejuvenated skin.
  • Resume your regular skin care routine after 24 hours, avoiding harsh exfoliants for a few days.
Do You Peel After DiamondGlow?

Peeling after a DiamondGlow treatment is typically not expected. DiamondGlow is a gentle treatment designed to leave the skin looking smoother, more radiant and hydrated without causing any significant downtime or visible peeling. However, some individuals with highly sensitive skin may experience mild skin flaking following the treatment, which usually subsides within 24 hours.

What Results Can I Expect From DiamondGlow?

Following DiamondGlow treatment, you can expect immediate improvements in your skin’s tone, texture and overall appearance. The removal of dead skin cells and the infusion of nourishing serums will leave your skin feeling hydrated, smooth and rejuvenated. Many patients also report a visible reduction in fine lines, dark spots and pore size.

Keep in mind that individual results may vary, and it’s essential to have realistic expectations. Your DiamondGlow specialist will guide you through the process and help you understand what to expect.

Does DiamondGlow Tighten Skin?

DiamondGlow primarily focuses on improving your complexion. While the treatment can lead to a healthier, more radiant complexion, its primary goal is not skin tightening. However, some patients may notice a subtle improvement in skin firmness due to the increased hydration and rejuvenation provided by the SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums. These effects, though, are generally temporary and less significant than those achieved through dedicated skin tightening treatments.

If your primary concern is skin laxity or sagging, other treatments such as radiofrequency, ultrasound or laser skin tightening may be more suitable to address your needs.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

For optimal results, a series of four to six treatments is often recommended. Each treatment should be undergone two to four weeks apart.

How Long Do DiamondGlow Facial Results Last?

The duration of the DiamondGlow results can vary based on individual factors such as skin type, concerns and lifestyle habits. In general, the immediate improvements in skin’s texture, tone and hydration can last for several days to several weeks following a single treatment.

How Can I Maintain My Results?

You can prolong the results of your DiamondGlow treatment by following a healthy lifestyle and a consistent skin care routine that includes cleansing, toning, serums, moisturizing and sun protection. Avoiding smoking and sun exposure can also help prolong your results. Unfortunately, there’s no way to stop the aging process, and everyone’s results will eventually become less noticeable as environmental factors and time take their toll. The best way to maintain the youthful, radiant skin achieved with DiamondGlow is to undergo maintenance sessions, which can be done every four to six weeks for optimal results.

What Are the Potential Side Effects of DiamondGlow Facials?

DiamondGlow is a non-surgical treatment with minimal risks when performed by a skilled, knowledgeable provider. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there may be some potential side effects and risks to consider:

  1. Skin Redness: Some individuals may experience temporary redness immediately following the treatment. These effects are usually mild and subside within a few hours.
  2. Skin Sensitivity: Some people may experience mild skin sensitivity or irritation after the treatment, especially if they have sensitive or reactive skin. This typically resolves within a few hours to a day.
  3. Infection: Although rare, there is a small risk of infection if the treatment area is not properly cleaned and sterilized before the procedure. It’s crucial to choose a certified DiamondGlow provider to minimize this risk.
  4. Allergic Reaction: Some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to the SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums used during the treatment. If you have a history of allergies or sensitivities, inform your provider so they can choose the most suitable serum for your skin.
  5. Aggravation of Pre-existing Skin Conditions: In some cases, DiamondGlow may aggravate pre-existing skin conditions such as rosacea or acne.

Overall, DiamondGlow is considered a safe and well-tolerated treatment with minimal risks when performed by a qualified professional. It’s essential to discuss your medical history and any concerns with your provider to determine if DiamondGlow is an appropriate treatment for you.

Is DiamondGlow Better Than HydraFacial?

Comparing DiamondGlow and HydraFacial can be challenging, as both treatments offer unique benefits and address various skin concerns. The choice between DiamondGlow and HydraFacial largely depends on individual preferences, skin type and specific concerns.


  1. Uses a diamond-tipped handpiece for precise manual exfoliation.
  2. Offers adjustable abrasion levels, allowing for customization based on individual skin types and concerns.
  3. Infuses the skin with SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums tailored to target specific skin issues.
  4. Generally focuses on improving skin texture, tone and hydration.


  1. Utilizes a vortex technology for exfoliation, extraction and hydration.
  2. Offers a multi-step process, including a chemical peel (chemical exfoliation), to address various skin concerns.
  3. Infuses the skin with serums containing antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid.
  4. Often targets concerns like dryness, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and congestion.

While both treatments provide exfoliation, extraction and serum infusion, their methods and specific focuses differ. At your consultation at The Lifestyle Center, we can discuss your individual skin concerns and goals to help you determine which treatment — DiamondGlow, HydraFacial or a combination of both — will best suit your needs and provide the desired results.
