Reveal More Radiant Skin with Advanced Resurfacing Treatments in Appleton, WI
As we get older, our skin cell turnover process slows, causing our skin to appear dull, lackluster, and dry on the surface. When cells aren’t being replaced as quickly as they once were, our pores can get clogged, and other issues—such as acne flare-ups, uneven texture, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation—are more likely to occur. DiamondGlow® from Appleton, WI’s Excelin Medical Spa is a type of diamond tip microdermabrasion treatment to restore clearer, brighter, heathier, and dewier skin with lasting results. This skin resurfacing and rejuvenation procedure suctions away dead cells while infusing the skin with serums. DiamondGlow® is designed to work with SkinMedica skin care products.
How Does DiamondGlow® Work?
Your skin needs ongoing maintenance to keep it strong and ensure that it functions properly. Through the process of exfoliation, the skin cells on the outer layers, known as the epidermis, are continually being replaced as younger cells from the deeper layers move up to take their place. Your body handles this on its own without you even knowing it is happening, but you can use exfoliation techniques to speed up the turnover process.
DiamondGlow® is an ultra-relaxing three-in-one facial that involves deeply cleansing and exfoliating, extracting debris from the skin, and then infusing the skin with nourishing products that are absorbed while pores are open and most receptive. DiamondGlow® uses a tool with actual crushed diamonds on the tip to strip away the layers of uneven, damaged, and dead skin on the surface to make way for new, healthier skin.
A wand is then used to suction away the loosened dead skin and impurities.
The third step in this cosmetic treatment consists of introducing potent SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums. There are five serums to choose from, depending on the types of concerns a patient wants to treat: Skin Brightening, Ultra Hydrating, Vitamin C, Pore Clarifying, and TNS Advanced+. Unlike a standard facial, DiamondGlow® involves techniques to ensure that all of the serum is absorbed. The exfoliation and extraction methods also allow the serum to penetrate deeper into the newly open pores.
Treatments are painless and can be completed in around 30 minutes. There is no downtime required after.
For many patients, skin volume will increase by as much as 70 percent. Although the skin will look more radiant and supple right away, it’s recommended that patients have a series of four to six treatments scheduled for every other week to maximize their results.
What Can DiamondGlow® Address?
The DiamondGlow® facial can be customized to treat unique skin concerns. It can improve the appearance of common skin imperfections such as dilated pores, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, dry skin, oily skin, an uneven skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. It can also be safely used on the sensitive skin of the eye areas and on the lips.
Am I a Good Candidate for DiamondGlow®?
DiamondGlow® is designed for patients who have minor scarring, skin texture irregularities, or sun damage. It is safe for all skin tones and skin types, but patients who have certain skin conditions—such as active eczema/dermatitis, lupus, psoriasis, sunburns, and skin infections—should consider a different procedure. It is best to consult with your Excelin clinician on the best treatment for your skin conditions.
What Other Skin Rejuvenation Options Are Available at Excelin Medical Spa?
Excelin Medical Spa provides a range of options for skin resurfacing, including chemical peels and facials. Peels exfoliate the outer layer of damaged skin via a mild acid solution, while facials deeply cleanse the skin, remove blockages from pores, and stimulate blood circulation. HydraFacial®, like DiamondGlow®, is a microdermabrasion-like technique that involves cleansing, exfoliating, and infusion of serums that are customized for the patient’s skin concerns. However, the difference is that DiamondGlow® uses physical exfoliation while HydraFacial® uses chemical exfoliation. Microneedling is a technique for improving the texture of the skin by inducing micro-injuries that trigger increased collagen regeneration.
