The DiamondGlow® facial is one of the few non-surgical treatments that can achieve immediate and noteworthy improvement in the health and appearance of your skin. Whether you want to target skin imperfections or create the ultimate base for flawless makeup application, our certified medical aesthetician, uses DiamondGlow’s unique technology to help our Hagerstown and Frederick-area patients transform their skin with no downtime.
What is DiamondGlow?
DiamondGlow is an advanced, non-invasive skin-resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of condition-specific serums in one step to improve skin health, function, and appearance.
How is DiamondGlow different from other facials?
Unlike traditional facials, DiamondGlow is a patented, 3-in-1 dermatological treatment that uses a specialized device to simultaneously exfoliate dead skin cells, extract impurities, and deliver professional-grade SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums into your skin. The diamond-tipped handpiece ensures even and effective exfoliation while preventing the risk of over-treatment and skin damage. DiamondGlow’s unique technology and simultaneous infusion ensure that the SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion serums penetrate deep into the skin at the exact right moment for superior results that traditional facials can’t achieve.
The benefits of DiamondGlow treatment for your skin
DiamondGlow treatment serums are completely customizable, and each treatment is tailored to target a broad range of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage and uneven skin tone
- Dry and dehydrated skin
- Oily, congested skin
- Enlarged pores
- Hyperpigmentation and dark spots
What other areas of the body can DiamondGlow be used on?
DiamondGlow is our go-to treatment for immediate and noticeably radiant skin and can be used on your face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back to improve the skin’s appearance. (In other words, reach for it when you have an upcoming beach vacation or want to look your best in skin-baring clothes!) We can use DiamondGlow treatments to lessen the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks and help treat the root causes of back acne and keratosis pilaris.
How does a DiamondGlow facial work?
We will carefully examine your skin and discuss your skincare goals and concerns to determine which wand tip(s) and serums to use in your treatment.
The DiamondGlow device
The DiamondGlow wand has 6 different diamond tips designed to address specific skin concerns for maximum efficacy and exfoliation and features adjustable suction levels for optimal removal of dead skin and debris from your pores. Once your skin has been primed, the wand delivers your personalized cocktail of SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion serums to target your specific needs.
About our SkinMedica® products
SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion serums are formulated to address some of the most common skin concerns; you and our aesthetician will select the ideal serum(s) to diminish your skincare woes. Each infusion is filled with high concentrations of active ingredients, and because DiamondGlow removes impurities first, the serum deeply penetrates the skin for maximum absorption and effectiveness.

What to expect from your DiamondGlow facial
Once we have chosen your treatment tips and serums, we will ensure you are feeling relaxed and comfortable on our facial table. We will move the DiamondGlow handpiece across the treatment area so the DiamondGlow technology can work its magic!
Are DiamondGlow treatments painful?
DiamondGlow treatments are not painful—most patients find the comfortable suction and infusion process a pleasant mix of invigorating and relaxing. Your aesthetician will work in small sections and methodically sweep the wand across the skin to cover the entire treatment area and to avoid irritating your skin by lingering too long in one spot.
DiamondGlow recovery & side effects
There’s no downtime needed after your DiamondGlow facial, so you’re free to return to your daily activities right after treatment. The possible side effects from a DiamondGlow treatment are generally minimal but can include temporary skin tightness, redness, or slight skin sensitivity. These effects are mild and quickly resolve on their own.
You can typically apply makeup within a few hours of the treatment, but many patients feel confident enough to go without makeup and show off their glowing skin. We also recommend not washing your face for at least 6 hours after your DiamondGlow facial so your skin can fully absorb the serum and reap maximum benefits.
The effects of DiamondGlow treatments are immediate and cumulative. You’ll notice clearer, refreshed skin after the first treatment. With continued treatments, you’ll experience stronger improvements in your skin’s appearance and texture and delay future skin concerns from developing.
You can help maintain your DiamondGlow facial results by incorporating medical-grade skincare products into your daily routine.
FAQs about DiamondGlow facials
How do I prepare for my treatment?
You should avoid sun exposure, topical retinoids, or any products with active ingredients that may increase skin sensitivity for at least a week before your treatment. The exfoliation and extraction process is safe and gentle—but we don’t want to exacerbate irritated skin if you have a sunburn or are using other types of exfoliants. We also ask that you arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin.
Is DiamondGlow safe for all skin types?
Yes, DiamondGlow is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. Part of your consultation involves a comprehensive skin assessment to be sure a DiamondGlow facial is the right approach for your skin’s condition and aesthetic goals. We may recommend another treatment or delay your facial if you’re experiencing any issues that may impact the treatment or results.
How often should you get a DiamondGlow facial?
We recommend that most patients get a DiamondGlow facial about every 4-6 weeks. This allows enough time for your skin to naturally rejuvenate in between sessions while still benefiting from consistent treatments.
A DiamondGlow facial is also an ideal one-time option if you are looking for a highly effective treatment but don’t want to commit to a series of sessions. We’ll be able to target existing concerns while you enjoy a pampering experience!
How is DiamondGlow different from Hydrafacial?
Both treatments offer exfoliation, extraction, and dermalinfusion; however, DiamondGlow uses a diamond-tip wand for exfoliation, while Hydrafacial uses a vortex-fusion delivery system. Our practice prefers the DiamondGlow technology to achieve superior results for our patients.
Does DiamondGlow treatment remove dark spots permanently?
It may; a DiamondGlow facial can significantly improve the appearance of dark spots, and maintenance treatments can help further diminish hyperpigmentation. Regular treatments can also keep these spots at bay—along with application of daily SPF to prevent UV exposure from causing dark spots to return or darken.
Can I get BOTOX or dermal filler at the same time as a DiamondGlow treatment?
Absolutely! We’d be happy to add injectables to your treatment plan. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Garazo performs all injections personally to ensure you experience the safest, most natural-looking results possible.
We offer premium injectables, including:
