DiamondGlow vs. Hydrafacial: Why Did We Switch to DiamondGlow?

May 24, 2021 | Face, Non-Surgical Options

With all its drawbacks, challenges, and rewards, today’s society asks every one of us to bring out our best, most confident selves every day, and one of the starting points that can lead us towards confident selves is skincare. There is no surprise here – many of us have worked daily skincare routines into our schedules to improve both the aesthetic and functional aspects of our body’s first line of defense against UV rays, injuries, and a myriad of other factors.   

However, good skin care is not always easy to achieve. From time to time, what we need is a little extra help to achieve that fantastic look, the one that inspires unshakeable confidence all around us. And the answer lies in the skin rejuvenation field of plastic surgery, where several procedures are ready to enhance the results of your skincare routine, delivering the beautiful, healthy skin of your dreams.

How to Choose the Right Skincare Procedure for You 

Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we believe that no two skin rejuvenation treatments are created equal. So, at our office in Port St. Lucie, FL, Dr. William J. Vinyard, MD, FACS, strives to include in his arsenal only the best of the best. For that reason, today, we shall take a closer look at two of the top facial treatments, DiamondGlowand HydraFacial. Furthermore, we shall also discover why, in our quest to provide the best care to our patients, we have chosen DiamondGlow as our go-to skin rejuvenation treatment. Let’s dive into the subject and learn more about DiamondGlow‘s superior benefits. Ready, set, GLOW!

Discovering DiamondGlow

Another product of Allergan, the company that achieved international fame with BOTOX, DiamondGlow is here to provide superior skin rejuvenation. Through its hydradermabrasion technology, DiamondGlow makes use of diamond tips to exfoliate the skin gently, extract any impurities from the inside of your pores, and infuse serums tailored to your needs deep into the skin. The diamond tip provides upward to six treatment options as well as customized serums tailored to your specific skin concern, making it suitable for all skin types. In the end, you will notice how DiamondGlow delivers that sought-after glow to your clean, hydrated, gorgeous skin!

Discovering the HydraFacial

Akin to its Allergan cousin, HydraFacial uses the same 3-in-1 regimen and employs vacuum pressure to exfoliate, cleanse, and infuse moisturizing serums, which brighten and protect your plump skin. 

Unlike its traditional dermabrasion counterpart, HydraFacial provides a gentler approach, it’s true. However, what happens when we compare it with DiamondGlow?

DiamondGlow™ vs. HydraFacial: Who Reigns Supreme?

Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, over time, we’ve noticed how, in numerous aspects, the HydraFacial cannot keep up with its Allergan equivalent, leading towards a complete switch from the former to the latter here at VIPS. However, what are these aspects, and how can DiamondGlow improve your skin care regimen? Let’s compare the two procedures on key aspects:

#1: Customization

Unlike the HydraFacial, DiamondGlow emphasizes versatility to address as many skin types and skincare goals as possible. DiamondGlow comes with six different diamond tips to provide a broader range of exfoliation for every patient, whereas HydraFacial uses a plastic, inferior tip. Furthermore, it delivers up to two condition-specific serums, bringing skin rejuvenation to the next level.

#2: Superior Results

For us, the biggest and most important difference lies in the results – DiamondGlow delivers the serums at the dermal-epidermal junction, significantly more profound than HydraFacial, whose serums only reach the surface of the skin. Furthermore, since it reaches deeper levels of the dermis, DiamondGlow is more effective in exfoliating, extracting, and infusing serums. This translates into superior, longer-lasting results: unlike HydraFacial, whose results will begin to fade away after a few days, DiamondGlow‘s results, with proper care, can last anywhere upward to several months.

#3: Serum Options

The DiamondGlow advantages over the HydraFacial do not stop there – another crucial aspect resides in serum versatility. Here at VIPS, patients can choose from our select list of top-quality products provided by SkinMedica®:

  • SkinMedica® Pore Clarifying Pro-Infusion Serum (for clearer skin, free from imperfections)
  • SkinMedica® Ultra Hydrating Pro-Infusion Serum (a hyaluronic-acid-rich serum for a rehydrated, smooth skin)
  • SkinMedica® Skin Brightening Pro-Infusion Serum (for a brightening effect, improving the appearance of uneven pigmentation)
  • SkinMedica® Vitamin C Pro-Infusion Serum (for superior rejuvenation and protection)
  • SkinMedica® TNS® Advanced+ Serum (to address natural signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and sagging skin)

Relax, refresh, and rejuvenate your skin!

With its more comprehensive range of treatment areas, versatility, and superior results, DiamondGlow has earned its place as the go-to skin rejuvenation treatment at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery. We’re more than anxious to welcome you to our office in Port St. Lucie, FL, to talk more about how DiamondGlow can step up your skincare regimen’s game! Ready to glow with DiamondGlow at the VIPS?
