Get the Power of Three Treatments in One Exfoliating Session in Thousand Oaks
To feel your absolute best, you want your skin to appear fresh and radiant. However, due to natural aging processes and years of sun exposure, your skin may have begun to appear dull and loose instead. Microdermabrasion has long been a strategy for speeding up natural skin cell turnover to get a rejuvenated look. DiamondGlow™ at Thousand Oaks’ Pierre Skin Care Institute advances microdermabrasion by combining the treatment with suction and infusion to take resurfacing to the next level.
Formerly known as SilkPeel, DiamondGlow™ offers patients the opportunity to promote new, healthy skin cells while simultaneously addressing other skin concerns. There are no side effects, the treatment is painless, and a session can be completed during your lunch hour or just before a special event for convenience.
How Does DiamondGlow™ Work?
A DiamondGlow™ treatment session involves a handpiece equipped with a precision diamond tip, which gently abrades the skin to remove the thin layer of dead cells that give it a dull, dry look.
High-powered suction pulls material out of pores for a deep cleanse.
With the surface more “open” and receptive to absorbing beneficial elements, the DiamondGlow™ handpiece adds SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion serums to brighten, clarify, hydrate, or add vitamin C.
This three-in-one treatment can generate visible results, but the cumulative effects of multiple sessions are even more dramatic. This is because the improvements build on each other over time, increasing healthy collagen and hydration in the skin.
What Conditions Does DiamondGlow™ Address?
Because DiamondGlow™ is such a gentle exfoliation treatment, it can be used all over the face and body—including sensitive regions like the lips and eye area.
At Pierre Skin Care Institute, patients choose it for treating oily, blemish-prone, or acne-troubled skin, as well as dry and flaky patches, fine lines and wrinkles, red or blotchy areas, and skin that has suffered from overexposure to ultraviolet radiation.

As a Stanford Medical School graduate and dermatologist certified by the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Peterson Pierre ("the Gentle Injector") is a highly respected leader in the industry with a reputation for exceeding patient expectations.
What Is a DiamondGlow™ Session Like?
Some patients describe DiamondGlow™ treatments as a relaxing 20 to 30 minutes. The handpiece moves directly against the surface of the skin, so expect to feel a slight sensation of suction as it pulls away exfoliated skin cells, debris, and material from pores.
Each session is individualized through the use of proprietary formulations delivered deep into the skin, where they are most effective. Dr. Peterson Pierre chooses the specialized treatment serum depending on your specific needs, whether to hydrate, brighten, or clarify.
A single treatment can also address several concerns by infusing more than one serum during your session.
Why Choose Pierre Skin Care Institute for DiamondGlow™ in Thousand Oaks?
Pierre Skin Care Institute was the first dermatology clinic in the Thousand Oaks area to offer SilkPeel, the treatment that developed into the DiamondGlow™ device of today. Significant experience with the technology driving gentle but effective exfoliation treatments has allowed our team to continue to see amazing results on patients seeking a more youthful appearance.
But technology alone is not enough to create the beautiful results and satisfying patient experience Pierre Skin Care Institute is known for. That requires a dedicated team assembled for their skill, compassion, and artistic eye. Dr. Peterson Pierre works hard to keep his team updated on the latest advances, as well as focused on providing customized, patient-focused visits.
What Results Can Be Expected From DiamondGlow™?
Skin-smoothing and brightening effects are visible after just one DiamondGlow™ session. By removing dead cells, the treatment allows a toned, more glowing skin layer to shine right away. The infusions will continue to improve skin quality for days.
For optimal improvement, Dr. Pierre recommends approximately four to six DiamondGlow™ sessions, spread out every two to four weeks. When paired with a good skin care regimen, this strategy can provide especially long-lasting results.
What Side Effects Is DiamondGlow™ Known For?
After a DiamondGlow™ treatment, your skin may feel tight or appear slightly red. These conditions will subside within a few minutes, and you will be able to resume your daily activities feeling the healthy glow of rejuvenated skin.
What Other Skin Rejuvenation Options Are Available?
Pierre Skin Care Institute has exfoliating options beyond DiamondGlow™: DermaSweep to simultaneously improve circulation and chemical peels to generate subtle to dramatic results. Microneedling rejuvenates the surface not by removing layers, but by creating channels that trigger collagen production. There are also collagen-inducing radiofrequency and ultrasound cosmetic treatments for skin tightening.
