How Does DiamondGlow™ Compare to Traditional Facials?

Your skin—unfortunately—isn’t getting any younger. In addition to being exposed to dirt, toxins, and other stressors each day, you also lose a small percentage of collagen each year. Even though you can and should take great care of your skin with a good at-home skin care routine, every so often it’s best to let the professionals give your skin the extra pampering it needs with a facial. Due to popular misconceptions, facials are sometimes thought of as an overly fancy or frivolous triviality, or something that only people with severe skin problems like blemishes, acne, and hyperpigmentation need. This is far from the case. Anyone, regardless of their skin type, can benefit from a regular facial to maintain healthy skin and avoid common cosmetic issues. That said, not all facials are the same. Looking for something more than the stereotypical cucumbers over the eyes? We recommend a DiamondGlow facial at our Westlake Village office for patients who want to give their skin extra nourishment.

Here’s how DiamondGlow compares to traditional facials. 

Basic Facials

Facials are multi-step skin treatments used to cleanse the skin, remove dead cells on the surface that block the pores, and target other skin concerns with a customized mask. The goal is to get younger-looking and healthier skin. Facials have numerous benefits, including reducing stress, cleaning out whiteheads and blackheads, improving blood circulation, and opening your pores. 


As opposed to traditional facials, DiamondGlow goes beyond the surface level, providing deeper exfoliation with a diamond-tipped wand. The device uses gentle dermabrasion to remove dead skin and allow new skin to replace it. Additionally, after the skin has been cleaned, DiamondGlow™ infuses the newly open and receptive pores with SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion topical serums. Unlike typical facials, the DiamondGlow technique can increase skin volume by up to 70 percent. This procedure also includes lymphatic drainage for the neck area to boost blood circulation and help clear away toxins from the tissues to improve complexion.
