Is HydraFacial or DiamondGlow Better for Resurfacing?

You may already know and love HydraFacial or DiamondGlow. They’re AMAZING facial treatments that hydrate your skin and leave you with a beautiful glow for months. They’re basically med spa staples. However, there are important differences between the two that might make one a more successful treatment for your skin. Let’s break down the differences between the two so you can know which will benefit your skin the most!

HydraFacial Overview

A multi‑award‑winning resurfacing treatment that instantly transforms your skin in less than an hour by exfoliating, cleansing, hydrating and rejuvenating the skin. It’s a non‑invasive procedure that removes dead skin cells, extracts impurities and bathes the skin with purifying and renewing serums, having a soothing effect.


It’s great for all skin types and safe for most skin conditions, including sensitive skin. It’s also customizable to your skin’s needs, so specific treatment serums and collagen‑stimulating ingredients can be used to give you the best results.


  • Takes as little as 45 minutes
  • Feels like a cool paintbrush moving over the face ‑ no pain and no downtime!
  • Visible skin refinement can be seen after just one treatment
  • Smooth results and hydration last 5‑7 days or longer
  • Cellular results last one month
  • One treatment per month is recommended

DiamondGlow Overview

This advanced deep clinical skin‑resurfacing treatment combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion to improve skin health function and appearance. You’ll see skin volumized by 70% in just one treatment. Non‑invasive three‑in‑one technology stimulates collagen and renewal and is customizable to treat all skin types and tones. This unique combination addressed the underlying cellular processes that bring about skin imperfections. 


Treatment is 30‑45 minutes and is customized to your skin. The full treatment will include eyes, lips, and full neck but can also be used on the body to address sun damage, stretch marks, body acne, and texture. It’s especially good for feet and hands!


  • Skin is smoothed, plumped, and hydrated over the next 30 days
  • Collagen is stimulated for long‑term rejuvenation
  • Six treatments spaced two weeks apart are recommended
  • No pain or downtime ‑ but skin may be pink and flushed after treatment
  • Addresses a wide variety of skin concerns and conditions from acne, to pigmentation, and sun damage.

Which Treatment is Right For You?

So, after all that ‑ let’s break down the similarities and differences between the two!


Both are amazing 3‑in‑1 treatments that resurface, extract and infuse. There’s no downtime for either and they’re great for all skin types all year round!

What’s Different Between HydraFacial & DiamondGlow? 

We like to say HydraFacial is a treat, while Diamondglow is a treatment. This means that HydraFacial is more of a spa treatment while DiamondGlow is more of a medical treatment. 


DiamondGlow goes deeper into the skin and removes a portion of the upper layer of skin, like Microdermabrasion. However, DiamondGlow goes a step further than Microdermabrasion by stimulating the skin on a cellular level, giving the cells a chance to rejuvenate and leaving long‑lasting improvement. 


HydraFacial leaves your skin looking flawless, with a radiant complexion but it doesn’t go as deep as DiamondGlow. So if you’re looking for gentle upkeep, you might want to consider HydraFacial. For deeper cleansing and resurfacing, go with DiamondGlow.
