Diamond Glow vs. Hydrafacial

Diamond Glow vs. Hydrafacial


What is Diamond Glow?

DiamondGlow is a facial that was formerly known as Dermalinfusion. It is a facial treatment that provides deep exfoliation and extraction to leave the skin lustrous and smooth. What distinguishes DiamondGlow from other facial treatments is exfoliation with its diamond tip technology, which offers manual exfoliation. Furthermore, that technology is paired with a closed-loop vacuum system that extracts debris from the skin’s surface. At Coastal, we use customized medical-grade serums applied to freshly exfoliated skin when it is most absorbent, allowing it to quickly and effectively absorb the appropriate nutrients. These serums allow for a customized treatment that can target specific skin concerns and can be tailored just for you. 


What is Hydrafacial?

A Hydrafacial provides advanced dermal infusion therapy to your skin. This treatment hydrates, cleanses, exfoliates, and enhances the complexion. Hydrafacials combine an aqua-delivery system with revitalizing skin solutions and hydrogen therapy for a multi-dimensional facial. During this procedure, alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, hyaluronic acid, and hydrogen are infused into the skin, while gentle exfoliation and extraction remove impurities.


How do I know which one is right for me?

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, no one but you can determine which treatments are suitable for your body. But we can break down the differences between Diamond Glow and HydraFacial here:

  1. Each treatment offers different exfoliation. Diamond glow utilizes manual exfoliation with a diamond tip, and Hydrafacial uses chemicals and suction to exfoliate the skin.
  2. Hydrafacial promotes “customized boosters,” and DiamondGlow uses medical-grade serums custom blended for your skin. While Hydrafacial meets cosmetic goals by cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating the skin, DiamondGlow offers clinical results, meaning it can cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate while also addressing discoloration and growth factors.
  3. DiamondGlow provides corrective care for skin that has active acne or needs other concerns.

At Coastal Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on delivering the very best for our clients, and we are proud to offer the DiamondGlow facial. 

Ideal candidates for DiamondGlow want to improve mild to moderate complexion issues like fine lines, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and more.

If you want to put your best face forward or freshen up your complexion before a big event (like a wedding), DiamondGlow is the proper treatment for you. Call us today to schedule your consultation. 


What are the benefits of DiamondGlow?

While Diamond Glow and HydraFacial are similar, The benefits of DiamondGlow are slightly more clinical than that of Hydrafacial. DiamondGlow is good no matter your skin’s needs, and it’s even beneficial if you have ongoing skin problems like acne. DiamondGlow can improve your skin’s radiance, visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, target specific skin concerns, and give you a lasting youthful glow. It can even treat discoloration, and it stimulates healthy cell renewal leaving your face fresh and flawless. 


What are the target areas for Diamond Glow?

DiamondGlow is a facial treatment, although some patients also choose to treat the neck area during their treatment.


What is recovery like? 

One of the reasons this treatment is so popular is because there is no recovery time after this treatment. After the short 30-minute treatment, you can immediately return to your normal activities. 


How many treatments should I get?

Our skincare specialists will talk to you about your skincare goals and customize a treatment plan for optimal results when you book your consultation. Typically after a DiamondGlow facial, patients see a difference right away, but we recommend repeating this process 1-2 times a month to maintain these impressive results.
