At VIDA Aesthetic Medicine, we are committed to providing you with the best treatments using the latest technologies—simply put, only the best. That’s why we exclusively offer DiamondGlow in lieu of HydraFacial, and while at first blush it might seem like the two treatments are similar there are some critical differences. We are constantly researching and testing the latest, most innovative treatments and there are many reasons we have opted to only provide DiamondGlow to our clients.

First, let’s take a look at the seeming similarities. Both DiamondGlow and HydraFacial use a three-step process to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, followed by an infusion of skin care products once the skin is optimally primed to accept them. However, how these three steps are achieved is quite differently. DiamondGlow was originally called DermalInfusion, and with the diamond upgrade, it sets a new gold standard for 3-step facials.

The DiamondGlow Win

The first difference is in the exfoliation step. DiamondGlow employs a manual exfoliation, and your provider uses a specialized, genuine diamond-tipped device for this function. This allows for customization—manual treatments are always more personalized than other approaches. HydraFacial depends on chemicals to exfoliate the skin, specifically glycolic and salicylic acid. These acids do a decent job of exfoliating, but they are a “one size fits all” approach and that’s not how we operate at VIDA.

Plus, DiamondGlow only uses medical-grade products for the finishing touch. HydraFacial does customize topicals, but you’re simply not getting the same level of quality ingredients and concentrations. You simply can’t compare medical and non-medical grade products because there’s a clear winner here (backed by research).

Why DiamondGlow is Your Best Friend

Ultimately, DiamondGlow helps you achieve clinical goals while HydraFacial is designed for cosmetic goals. DiamondGlow stimulates blood flow and flushes out toxins. HydraFacial is strictly cosmetic—but this doesn’t mean that DiamondGlow doesn’t have cosmetic benefits, too. In fact, a natural side effect of clinical results is also achieving cosmetic results.

That’s why DiamondGlow is considered a corrective treatment while HydraFacial is more for continuous care. If you’re trying to address a skin condition (and there are over 3,000!) while also improving the skin’s appearance, DiamondGlow is for you. But if you’ve already achieved 100% healthy skin, then HydraFacial should do the trick for sustaining it—but DiamondGlow certainly wouldn’t hurt in this case, either.

The Benefits of DiamondGlow

Unlike HydraFacial, DiamondGlow is capable of treating difficult and delicate areas like around the eyes and lips. This is thanks to the fully individualized capability of the diamond tip. When you compare these two treatments: DiamondGlow is the clear winner. It can do more, is more customizable, and is paired with medical-grade products.

If you’ve been thinking about getting a luxe facial, take it to the next level and discover what DiamondGlow can do for you. It’s powerful and yet gentle enough that there is no downtime. In fact, you’ll love how your skin looks right after your treatment with results that keep improving in the days that follow. A DiamondGlow facial is also a great way to test out medical-grade products without committing to purchasing them. These products are an investment and one that you can make with confidence after experiencing the diamond difference.
