The Ultimate Facial
Recently, when asked for her top recommendation for a procedure with no down time, Dr. Lindsey Pennington, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, recommended “the DiamondGlow™ facial. Leading with innovation and backed by science, DiamondGlow, formerly known as Dermalinfusion, is a new way to unlock your skin’s potential and reveal your radiance.”
“I find a lot of times patients can be overwhelmed by all the choices on the market right now; I spend a significant amount of time researching all the options and really comparing the science. I researched multiple devices prior to making the investment to purchase and train my staff on the DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion. It really is the best technology on the market for customized facials,” states Dr. Pennington.
The immediate results are impressive. According to a clinical study conducted by SkinMedica, 89% of patients experienced immediate improvement in overall dryness, 90% experienced improvement in skin radiance, and 95% reported that their skin felt more plump. Thanks to the power of diamonds and advanced SkinMedica ® science, achieving nourished, radiant and plump, youthful-looking skin can be achieved in only 30 minutes.
After one in-office DiamondGlow treatment, skin appears:
• Clearer with unclogged pores and more even in tone
And beyond, an improved appearance of:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Roughness and dryness
• Dark spots and skin discoloration and dull, congested skin
The transformative power of DiamondGlow starts with their signature wand. Built with innovative technology, the diamond-tipped wand simultaneously exfoliates and removes the top layer of skin debris. It extracts congestion by sucking out pores and infuses the skin with professional medical-grade SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums customized to a patient’s skinspecific issues and concerns when pores are open and most receptive.
“It’s a 3-in-1. You’re getting exfoliation with a customized diamond tip with six different levels of microdermabrasion available, each designed for different skin types and textures. Extraction with a targeted pulse technology then happens all while we’re infusing skin with serums that are targeted to that patient’s specific needs,” states Crystal Villarreal, medical aesthetician at Pennington Facial Plastics.
There are five serums available that are personalized to specific skincare concerns:
1. Skin Brightening: Erases pigmentation issues such as sun damage and melasma.
2. Ultra Hydrating: Infuses hydration and plumpness with hyaluronic acid.
3. Vitamin C: Full of antioxidants to fight damage and free radicals. This is a favorite among our pregnant and nursing patients and really gives a beautiful posttreatment glow.
4. Pore Clarifying: Fights acne and clears out pores with medical-grade active ingredients such a salicylic acid.
5. SkinMedica’s signature TNS Advanced+: Reverses signs of aging and prevents collagen breakdown with the highest concentration of growth factors on the market.
DiamondGlow is completely customizable across multiple skin types and textures even on the same patient. Per Dr. Pennington, those with acne scars, hyperpigmentation, melasma, sun-damaged skin and fine lines with wrinkles will benefit most from DiamondGlow. If you have “active acne flares, rosacea or very sensitive skin types,” however, the treatment “may not be ideal.”
Head in for a single, quick refresh and glow up before an evening out, or plan on a series to improve the underlying quality of your skin and true radiance.
