What Is DiamondGlow Microdermabrasion?
When you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or rough and scaly? If your skin is rough, the outer layer of your skin may be clogged with dead skin cells that make your complexion uneven and dull. At Infinite Wellness & Aesthetics in Yarmouth, ME, our experienced aesthetic team performs medical spa services like nonsurgical skin resurfacing with the cutting-edge DiamondGlow microdermabrasion system. Effective and fast, DiamondGlow microdermabrasion removes the outer layer of dead and damaged skin and then infuses it with the nourishing, healing, and hydrating SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums, leaving your face brighter and healthier. This procedure can be performed on its own or with a complimentary skin treatment, such as a BOTOX®, for more dramatic results. At your consultation, your team member will work with you to create a custom treatment plan based on your concerns and goals.

How Does DiamondGlow Microdermabrasion Work?
DiamondGlow microdermabrasion treatments are performed in our office following a consultation to determine what procedures will lead to the best results. For the treatment, you will lie back in a treatment chair as your skin is prepared. The DiamondGlow patented recessed diamond tip handpiece will pass over your skin as it exfoliates dead, damaged skin cells while simultaneously sucking up the debris. While the treatment feels odd, it is not uncomfortable, so you shouldn't need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion treatment will be performed evenly over the needed areas, with extra care and sensitivity on the delicate skin around the eyes. After the treatment is over, the skin will be cleaned to remove any leftover debris before a nourishing SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serum is applied.
What Can I Expect After My DiamondGlow Treatment?
Following treatment, you may resume your normal routine as long as you wear some form of sun protection since your baby-like skin will be susceptible to sun damage. Your face will feel softer, and your skin tone and complexion should be brighter. To prolong your results, we often suggest getting a DiamondGlow microdermabrasion treatment every 4 weeks. Many of our Yarmouth, ME patients notice that after treatments, their skin care products (particularly moisturizers) soak more easily into the skin for more effective results.
DiamondGlow Microdermabrasion FAQ
How much does DiamondGlow microdermabrasion cost?
The price for DiamondGlow microdermabrasion treatments will be discussed during your consultation with a skin care technician. After you explain your needs and they assess your complexion, your custom microdermabrasion treatment plan can be made. Infinite Wellness & Aesthetics often has specials on skin treatments like microdermabrasion and discounted packages if you buy several sessions.
Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Depending on your complexion and cosmetic goals, a skin care professional will help you understand if microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel is the best treatment. In general, microdermabrasion is good to clear away the surface layer of damaged and dead skin cells to make your complexion look smoother and healthier. A light chemical peel produces similar results to microdermabrasion. A stronger chemical peel or dermabrasion can help if your concerns are below the surface skin layers. Recovery time might also influence which treatment you want since microdermabrasion requires little to no downtime.
How often should I get DiamondGlow microdermabrasion treatments?
Initially, you may need anywhere from 5 – 12 DiamondGlow microdermabrasion treatments scheduled about 2 – 4 weeks apart to see your best results. After that, you may move to appointments every 4 – 8 weeks to maintain the health of your skin. In your initial consultation, your technician can make a plan with recommendations specific to your goals that details when you should schedule appointments.
How should I care for my skin after a microdermabrasion treatment?
After your microdermabrasion procedure, you are encouraged to limit your activity for the rest of the day to allow your skin time to rest and heal. You need to avoid UV rays (tanning beds and natural sunlight) and protect your skin with sunscreen. To reduce swelling and redness following the treatment, we might suggest a moisturizer or other skin product.
Can I combine DiamondGlow microdermabrasion with other treatments?
Since DiamondGlow microdermabrasion is a surface skin treatment, you may consider combining it with other procedures. Many patients combine microdermabrasion with a facial or an injectable wrinkle treatment, like BOTOX. Please be open about all your complexion issues in your consultation so your technician can create a treatment plan that meets all your goals.
