llergan’s Skinmedica is rolling out DiamondGlow, a non-invasive dermabrasion technology that exfoliates, extracts, and treats the face, eye area, lips and body.
Allergan acquired Envy Medical, Inc and its Silkpeel Dermalinfusion in 2019 and rebranded this treatment as DiamondGlow.
The device includes six different customizable diamond tips to tailor treatment for every skin type. Tips range from fine to coarse. The treatment infuses the skin with the SkinMedica Pro-Infusion Serums when pores are open.
“It bridges home skincare and office procedures,” says New York City plastic surgeon David Shafer, MD, at a media event. “If you take a diamond to a jeweler, it gets a better cleaning than it does at home,” he says. “We have people come in anywhere from every week to every two to four weeks and others who come in a couple of times a year for DiamondGlow."
Typical side effects include a scratchy, stinging sensation during the treatment and temporary tightness, redness or slight swelling after the treatment. Rare serious side effects may also occur and include severe skin irritation and allergic reactions.
DiamondGlow is now available in physicians’ offices.
