Facial massage, a calming environment and much-needed “me time” are all incredible, but the most rewarding part of a facial is when that newly glowing skin is finally revealed. The only thing better than leaving with fresher, more radiant skin? Maintaining those high-quality results at home.
For truly revitalized skin, the first step is to choose a treatment that can be customized to address your skin concerns. SkinMedica’s newest in-office skin-resurfacing treatment is the DiamondGlow™, which uses proprietary 3X1™ Technology to exfoliate, extract impurities from pores, and infuse the skin with a SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serum chosen to address your individual skin concerns.
The device uses an actual diamond tip to slough away dry skin, combined with high-powered suction that deeply cleanses the pores. A DiamondGlow™ treatment only takes about 30 minutes, but it was designed with post-treatment skincare in mind. Once the appointment is over, the question becomes: How can I maintain these results?
Why is post-treatment skin care important?
Once you and your newly glowing skin are back at home, a tailored skincare regimen can “both enhance and extend the results of the treatment,” says Beverly Hills, CA dermatologist Anna Guanche, MD. In addition to the occasional pampering, rejuvenating treatment, a daily skincare routine will maintain that healthy-looking glow on a day-to-day basis.
In addition to offering skincare devices like DiamondGlow™, SkinMedica® formulates fan- favorite skincare products like HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator, TNS Essential Serum®, and the next-generation in age-defying technology with the new TNS® Advanced+ Serum. At your DiamondGlow™ appointment, your aesthetic provider can help you determine which SkinMedica® products are best suited to enhance your in-office treatment results.
How can I create a post-DiamondGlow™ skin-care routine?
The DiamondGlow™ treatment will be customized with one of five SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums. Together with your provider, you’ll choose between a Skin Brightening, Pore Clarifying, Ultra Hydrating, Vitamin C, or the new TNS® Advanced+ Pro Infusion Serum formulated with the most advanced growth factor technology, to comprehensively rejuvenate skin. As the device gathers dead skin and exfoliates the top layer of skin, it simultaneously infuses the serum of choice and jumpstarts your rejuvenation treatment plan.
Each SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serum calls for a corresponding post-treatment skincare routine, which will help you “maintain, enhance and extend the results,” explains Edwards, CO dermatologist Karen Nern, MD.
Your post-treatment plan will include “a daily cleansing followed by a professional-grade regimen containing targeted ingredients to hydrate, brighten and clarify the skin,” says Dr. Nern. During your appointment, your provider will help you determine exactly which SkinMedica® regimen you’ll follow at home. The good news? There’s an option for every skin concern. “Post treatment regimens include growth factors, antioxidants, brightening ingredients, and elements designed to work with the body’s natural rhythms,” says Dr. Nern.
The evidence supports the importance of a post-treatment routine: In a clinical trial*, a series of DiamondGlow™ treatments supported with a take-home SkinMedica® skincare regimen showed continued and significant, visible improvement at six and 12 weeks in roughness, radiance, hyperpigmentation, and skin tone.
