3-IN-ONE DERMABRASION TREATMENTS FOR A BRIGHTER, CLEARER COMPLEXION IN WESTFIELD, NJ
If your skin needs a pick-me-up, consider diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments to improve it. DiamondGlow® at NJ’s Burnett Plastic Surgery is a professional skin-rejuvenation treatment that results in healthier, smoother, refreshed, and more vibrant skin.
The DiamondGlow® device deep cleans pores to remove blockages while reducing common skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, dark spots, discoloration, and dullness. The treatment also includes skincare infusions to help revitalize the complexion.
WHAT CAUSES DULL, UNEVEN SKIN?
Skin cell turnover helps your skin to look, feel, and function well. It’s an important process, but your body takes care of it “in the background” without you realizing it’s happening.
Unfortunately, this process also slows over time. As a result, your skin may look lackluster, dull, dry, or flaky due to aging and a buildup of dead skin.
Light, mechanical abrasion with DiamondGlow® allows new, glowing skin to be revealed at the surface and reinvigorates the skin cell turnover process. This dermabrasion technique is highly effective for enhancing the tone, texture, and color of the skin.
DiamondGlow® is a three-in-one, minimally invasive skin resurfacing procedure that involves exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of serums.
First, the skin is professionally exfoliated with a precision, diamond-tipped device to remove the dead, uneven top layers. This involves application of a topical numbing cream, followed by an experienced provider moving the diamond-tipped wand across the skin to polish the surface by removing uneven or pigmented cells.
Next, a suction mechanism is used to extract the skin cells that have been exfoliated. As the dead skin is being gently sloughed away, the three-in-one device simultaneously infuses the skin with topical cosmetic serums at the moment when pores are open and most receptive. Five different serums are available so that the treatment can be custom-tailored for each patient’s goals.
The DiamondGlow® treatment itself takes only around 30 minutes to be completed. Another advantage? There is no downtime required. There may be slight redness and swelling just after a session, but these minor side effects resolve within a few hours.
HOW DOES DIAMONDGLOW® WORK WITH SKINMEDICA®?
DiamondGlow® is combined with SkinMedica® advanced skincare products. It is paired with targeted, premium SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion serums so that the treatment can be fully customized for the patient’s unique needs.
Five different serums are available:
- SkinMedica Skin Brightening: contains patented Lumixyl® peptide to lighten uneven pigmentation
- SkinMedica Ultra Hydrating: contains hyaluronic acid to add a boost of hydration
- SkinMedica Vitamin C: strengthens and protects the skin with powerful antioxidants
- SkinMedica Pore Clarifying: provides relief for acne-prone skin and corrects irregularities for clearer skin
- SkinMedica TNS Advanced+: improves the skin’s tone and texture.
You can use a take-home SkinMedica® skincare regimen to promote continual improvement. Glowtox (BOTOX® with DiamondGlow®) is also available for skin rejuvenation with an added tightening effect.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR DIAMONDGLOW®?
Patients who have minor scarring, skin texture irregularities, and sun damage may benefit from DiamondGlow®. Those with active rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and certain other types of skin conditions should not have this treatment.
TIPS FOR GETTING THE BEST RESULTS WITH DIAMONDGLOW®
For optimal results, patients may be advised to schedule multiple treatments that are spaced two to three weeks apart. The results continually improve after each treatment. Prior to having DiamondGlow®, patients should not apply Retin-A or other exfoliating creams to their skin for one to three days, avoid tanning and waxing for one weeks, and discontinue chemical peels and injectables for two to three weeks before their session.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS LIKE FROM DIAMONDGLOW®?
Patients will notice that their skin quickly becomes smoother, more even, and more luminous. Once the skin improves, patients will need to have maintenance treatments to maintain its healthy, glowing appearance.
WHAT OTHER FACIAL REJUVENATION OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?
Burnett Plastic Surgery offers numerous non-surgical skin-related procedures to address the effects of aging.
BOTOX®, an injectable, purified form of botulinum toxin, temporarily relaxes muscles in certain areas of the face to prevent the skin from wrinkling. It softens expression wrinkles on the upper third of the face, including crow’s feet, forehead lines, and glabellar lines.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm® contain hyaluronic acid as their primary ingredient. These crystal-clear, soft gels are injected beneath the skin to reduce wrinkles or add volume to enhance the contours of the face.
Chemical peels remove the outer layer of dead skin to promote skin cell turnover.
