What is Diamond Glow?
Diamond Glow’s three-in-one technology exfoliates, extracts, and dermally infuses powerful skin serums during a short and pain-free in-office treatment. Using an exfoliating diamond treatment head equipped with suction and infusion abilities, Diamond Glow by Allergan infuses a condition-specific serum at the moment of exfoliation, which immediately plumps, brightens, and rejuvenates the surface of the skin. The serum also progressively activates cellular improvements that continue to enhance skin health and aesthetics long after the treatment.

The Diamond Glow Consultation in Austin, TX
A Diamond Glow skin consultation includes a discussion of the patient’s goals and any problematic skin concerns. A review of the patient’s health history and a physical examination will provide the specialist with the criteria needed for a successful treatment plan, which will include a condition-specific serum and several recommended treatments.
Approved candidates must adhere to the treatment recommendations to achieve the best results. Before and after photos of previous patients are available, and the skin specialist will describe the treatment, the expectations, and any other recommended procedures before inviting the patient to ask questions.
The Diamond Glow Procedure
Diamond Glow face and body skin resurfacing treatments at Buckingham Center in Austin, Texas, are performed using a specialized handheld device. The diamond-tipped wand glides over the skin’s surface as it exfoliates, vacuums dirt, dead cells, and debris, and simultaneously infuses a customized serum based on the patient’s skin type and individual needs.
The wand is gentle enough to improve sensitive areas of the face that are typically avoided during exfoliation, including the skin around the eyes and lips. A custom Diamond Glow treatment plan is created during the consultation, which may include a series of treatments to address the face, neck, chest, arms, or other areas on the body.
The professional-strength serum that will be used during treatment is selected at the consultation based on the patient’s skin tone and specific concerns. The serums help resolve problematic skin conditions and may include salicylic acid to address acne or hyaluronic acid to moisturize, etc.
Together the exfoliation, extraction, and infusion will treat acne scars, cleanse clogged pores, and improve hyperpigmentation, dark spots, dry or oily skin, and rough areas. The pain-free treatment delivers precise, beautiful results in less than thirty minutes.
Recovering from Diamond Glow
Immediately after the painless treatment, the skin will look more hydrated with a brighter and more even skin tone. A reduction in fine lines, stretch marks, scarring, and sun damage is progressively evident as the skin cells respond to the treatment. Four to six treatments spaced one month apart are typically recommended to improve acne scars or problematic skin conditions. No downtime is required.

Common Questions about Diamond Glow
The non-invasive treatment requires no anesthesia and poses almost zero risks to patients. The treated skin typically appears flushed or red immediately after the treatment, but these side effects are minor and temporary.
The skin will immediately appear up to 70% plumper and more hydrated for up to 72 hours. Skin treated with a professional-strength serum will experience lasting results and gradual improvement in hyperpigmentation, acne, and oily or dry skin. Each patient receives a customized treatment plan, including a series of infusion treatments and follow-up maintenance treatments to ensure long-lasting results.
Most Diamond Glow professionals recommend a series of four to six treatments to ensure significant, lasting results. Diamond Glow treatments offer dramatic results that continue to improve long after the procedure. Maintenance treatments ensure continuously smooth, youthful, and healthy skin.
Dermabrasion is a controlled, consistent, and gentle treatment, while microdermabrasion blasts particles of the skin to more aggressively exfoliate the skin’s surface. The only similarity between microdermabrasion and Diamond Glow is that they both involve exfoliation. Diamond Glow also injects a condition-specific solution deep within the skin to regenerate the skin cells.
Diamond Glow’s beautiful, glowing results complement Botox, which reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement. A personalized care plan at Buckingham Center may recommend additional treatments to match your goals, including fillers, endoscopic forehead lift, chin liposuction, or another facial rejuvenation treatment.
