Diamond Glow Facial
Diamond Glow is a type of aesthetic treatment that combines microdermabrasion, a mild chemical peel, and the infusion of serums into the skin. The treatment is done with a device that uses a diamond-tip wand to exfoliate the skin and suction to remove dead skin cells. After the exfoliation, a chemical peel solution is applied to the skin, which is then neutralized. The final step is the infusion of serums into the skin with the device’s infusion tip, which targets specific skin concerns.
This is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures such as traditional chemical peels or laser resurfacing. It aims to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation. This treatment is gentle, and it’s designed for most skin types.
A series of treatments is usually recommended to achieve optimal results since the skin’s renewal process takes time. It’s essential to consult with a qualified skincare professional to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to evaluate the potential risks and benefits of Diamond Glow. Proper aftercare is essential to maintain the results and to avoid any complications.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly piercing the skin with fine needles. The procedure is typically performed in an office setting with a device known as a micro-needling pen, which has many tiny needles on a tip that are moved over the skin. Micro-needling aims to stimulate collagen production in the skin, which can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin concerns. The procedure can be used on the face, neck, and body, and is often performed in a series of treatments for best results.
We use one of three custom cocktails for our clients to choose from.
The PDO AfterGlo
PDO AfterGlo™ is a hydrating booster made of both PDO and Hyaluronic Acid ( HA). The combination of these products helps to smooth skin roughness, provides a protective layer to help retain moisture, and strengthens skin to improve elasticity and resilience. This “filler in a bottle” is equivalent to ~1000 smooth threads.
Toxin and Filler Duo
When used in conjunction with micro-needling, Botox and Hyaluronic acid (HA) can plump, hydrate, and help to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the face. This improves the skin texture and provides a more youthful appearance.
Skinfuse products, such as serums and creams, contain antioxidants like Vitamin C, E, and ferulic acid, neutralizing free radicals and protecting the skin from damage. These products are often used to improve the appearance of the skin, promote a more youthful looking, and protect the skin from environmental stressors such as pollution and UV rays.
VI Chemical Peel
VI Peel is a chemical peel used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, and body. It contains a combination of ingredients such as Trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Retinoic acid, Phenol, Salicylic acid, and Vitamin C.
A chemical peel involves applying a solution to the skin that causes the top layers of dead skin cells to peel off, revealing the newer, smoother skin underneath. The VI Peel is designed to improve the texture and tone of the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of acne, hyperpigmentation, and scarring.
There are five different VI Peels that target skin conditions and a discussion with your practitioner regarding your specific goals will help determine the perfect peel. Often, a series of three peels may be recommended for maximum results, but the peel can also be used as a stand-alone treatment done three to four times a year for maintenance.
The procedure is performed by a trained skincare professional, who will first cleanse the skin and then apply the peel solution. The solution is “layered” on the skin depending on the skin’s reaction and desired results. The peeling process typically starts 3-4 days after the procedure and may last for up to 7 days; this process varies from person to person. It’s recommended that patients avoid sun exposure and other activities that may irritate the skin during this time.
As with any chemical peel, there is a risk of side effects, such as redness, irritation, or hyperpigmentation. It’s important to follow proper aftercare instructions from the skincare professional and avoid sun exposure until the skin has fully healed.
VI Peel is considered a medium-depth peel. Deeper peels may have more dramatic results but will also require a longer recovery time and have more risks associated with them. It’s important to consult with a qualified skincare professional to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to evaluate the potential risks and benefits.
