Diamond Glow vs. Hydrafacial: What’s Best For Me?

There are seemingly unlimited options to choose from in the world of modern beauty and skin health. One of the toughest beauty and health choices to make is whether you should get a Hydrafacial or diamond glow microdermabrasion. While both forms of facial treatment will make you feel more beautiful and confident, it’s important to make the right choice based on your skin and preferences. 

This article will compare the two treatment options and help you decide which one suits you best.  

What is a Hydrafacial? 

Hydrafacials are one of the most popular facial treatments used today. Hydrafacials use glycolic and salicylic chemicals to get your skin glowing, smooth, beautiful, and healthy. Hydrafacials are extremely effective at removing dead skin cells, exfoliating your skin, and cleaning your pores. 

One of the biggest differences between Hydrafacials and Diamond Glow is that the goals of Hydrafacial are beauty then health. On the other hand, Diamond Glow treatments emphasize getting your skin healthy first, then beautifying it. 

Hydrafacial treatments are quick and painless and can be completed in as little as half an hour. No matter what your skin condition is, a Hydrafacial can help. The result will be that your face feels hydrated with plump skin and a glowing effect. 

Pros and cons of a Hydrafacial 


  • Treatments are quick and painless, and you can be in and out in 30 minutes or less. 
  • Where Diamond Glow might cause redness and irritation after the procedure, Hydrafacials leave little to no negative after-effects. 
  • Ageless Remedies uses their special Hydrafacial wand to improve the already great benefits of a Hydrafacial treatment. 
  • No matter what your age is or who you are, or what your skin condition is, Hydrafacials can benefit everyone. 
  • Hydrafacials are one of the most relaxing forms of facial treatment that you can receive. 
  • The goals and benefits of Hydrafacials are: to reduce redness, to brighten your skin, to improve texture, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and to eliminate signs of aging. 


  • While there are usually little to no side effects from a Hydrafacial, those with sensitive skin may end up with redness, blotchiness, or irritated skin after a treatment. 
  • Hydrafacials aren’t always an instant remedy, and you may require more than one treatment to fix your skin. It’s also encouraged to pursue monthly treatments to keep your skin on track. 
  • While the treatment isn’t as in-depth and comprehensive as Diamond Glow, the cost is very similar. 

What is Diamond Glow? 

Diamond Glow is a much more in-depth and clinical approach to repairing your skin. Hydrafacials use chemicals during their treatments, Diamond Glow focuses more on manual therapy and treatment. The process uses diamond tip technology to manually exfoliate, vacuum, and clean your skin. The treatment is performed under medical supervision, but don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re going through surgery or anything of the sort. 

Diamond Glow is simply a more direct and advanced method of treating facial skin. Think of it as a Hydrafacial on steroids. Treatments are custom-designed, as are the serums deemed to be the most effective for your particular skin. Diamond Glow is recommended for individuals with more advanced skin problems requiring in-depth and custom treatment. 

Pros and cons of Diamond Glow 


  • Much like Hydrafacials, Diamond Glow is suitable for people of all ages and skin conditions. No matter who you are or your skin situation, you can benefit from Diamond Glow. 
  • Diamond Glow treatments are relatively painless and can be completed in 30 minutes or less. 
  • You’ll see more instant effects after a single treatment of Diamond Glow than you will with a Hydrafacial. 
  • Diamond Glow offers more versatility and customization with treatments than Hydrafacials do. 
  • The benefits and goals of Diamond Glow are: to refine your pores, hydrate your skin, address growth factors, add antioxidants to your skin, and reduce discoloration.   


  • While instant benefits are often seen right away, some individuals might not see improvement for several months. It takes time for the dead skin cells to dissolve and remove themselves, which means you might have to be patient. 
  • Diamond Glow has been known to increase acne problems in individuals already suffering from it. 
  • Your skin will often be more red and irritated after Diamond Glow than after a Hydrafacial. 

Which treatment is right for me? 

If you want a more in-depth, customizable treatment that produces instant clinical results, Diamond Glow is the option for you. However, if you want the treatment that will have your skin looking and feeling the best right away, Hydrafacials are more effective. But rather than choosing between the two, there’s a third option. 

Because Diamond Glow is often considered corrective care and Hydrafacials are regarded as continuous care, the best choice is to use both methods! If you’re serious about getting healthy and beautiful skin, your best option is to receive a Diamond Glow treatment. Diamond Glow is more in-depth and will repair your skin in a hurry. 

Once you’re done with your Diamond Glow treatment, you should follow up with Hydrafacials. Hydrafacials aren’t as intense as Diamond Glow treatments and are better at maintaining your skin once you have it where you want it. 

Depending on how healthy your skin is when you start your treatments, Diamond Glow may not be necessary. If you and your beautician feel like your skin can be treated and remedied with just Hydrafacials, you should opt for that path.
