Call for Best Price



Unlike other treatments, DiamondGlow is customized to you — combining a precision diamond tip with matching your skin’s needs, targeted SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums, and a perfectly curated, at-home SkinMedica® skincare regimen to keep your glow going.

The transformative power of DiamondGlow™ starts in our signature wand. Built with our innovative 3X13 cross 1™ technology, the wand simultaneously exfoliates, extracts debris, and infuses the skin with professional-grade SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums when pores are open and most receptive.

The six DiamondGlow diamond tips allow your Aesthetic Provider to customize your treatment to suit your skin. Each tip is specifically designed for maximum efficacy and exfoliation for specific skin concerns.

The science and research that go into SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums deliver exceptional skincare with significant results. DiamondGlow is designed to work with SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion serums tailored to specific skin concerns for a highly customizable treatment.

All of our SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums are sulfate/sulfite-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free.


Diamond Glow Facial (Microdermabrasion) combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion to refresh the skin. It enhances exfoliation to remove impurities from pores and deliver nourishing serums. Patients can choose from varying grades of exfoliating tips to accommodate their skin types.

Diamond Glow Facial (Microdermabrasion) (Dermalinfusion) is a treatment method called Microdermabrasion, which gently removes the stratum corneum, the dead outer protective layer of the skin. It provides a bit of a barrier to the sun and anything that comes into contact with the skin. Still, it also gets in the way of absorption of beneficial products and skin turnover to promote skin metabolism. 

Hydrodermabrasion uses water in conjunction with a diamond tip to gently exfoliate the skin.  It is adjustable from extremely light to very aggressive to tailor the treatment to the individual and their goals.  

The adjustability allows us to simultaneously infuse products that can hydrate, lighten, tighten pores and reduce acne or fortify so that the procedure is two-in-one.  Even the most sensitive-skin individual may benefit from a silk peel that has been adjusted for their skin type.

Patients looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, age spots, and acne concerns with no downtime are good candidates for this procedure. The DERMALINFUSION® can help anyone who has acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, brown spots, mild wrinkles, skin dullness, and large pores.

Unlike other microdermabrasion, the DERMALINFUSION® System combines non-invasive exfoliation with deep delivery of patient-specific solutions directly to the skin – without using crystal or other chemical exfoliants.

DERMALINFUSION® is exclusively offered through facilities with medical directors on staff and isn’t available at a typical day spa or salon. The procedure is non-invasive and even soothing, delivering the results you want without harsh chemicals or uncomfortable treatments. The DERMALINFUSION® is a 30-minute treatment, and patients can return to activities immediately.

See our FAQ below. Contact Us with any other questions.



We recommend 1-2 Diamond Glow Facial (Microdermabrasion) treatments per month to see continued improvement and glowing results. Your provider will determine your personalized treatment plan.

We recommend 3-4Diamond Glow Facial (Microdermabrasion) treatments two weeks apart and maintenance every 2-3 months to jump-start your new skin. However, even oneDiamond Glow Facial (Microdermabrasion) treatment will usually refresh your skin for up to six weeks!

Some patients may experience mild redness immediately following theirDiamond Glow Facial (Microdermabrasion) service. This is temporary and generally resolves within a few minutes up to several hours. 2. You may apply makeup immediately post-treatment.

You can expect to see continued smoothness as the rough texture sloughs off. You can also expect a gradual metamorphosis as the sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and uneven tone fade away, and brighter, glowing skin takes its place.

Diamond Glow Facial (Microdermabrasion) is a three-in-one treatment that simultaneously performs exfoliation, extractions, and serum infusion and does so via the device’s skin-resurfacing wand, which boasts an exfoliating diamond tip (hence the name).

  • The office staff is super accommodating and helpful, and Dr. Tuggle and Tonya Tuggle are both wonderful at what they do. I have had multiple procedures/treatments here over the years and highly recommend them. I never feel uncomfortable or judged, which is huge when deciding on cosmetic procedures. I also never felt pressured into anything and always felt informed about all of my decisions. They have great seasonal specials on fillers, etc!

    Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

She is extremely knowledgeable and instantly made me feel comfortable. Tonya exceeded my expectations. I’ve received so many compliments from friends and family. The entire staff were friendly and professional. I will definitely become a loyal client. Thank you Tonya and team!!!

Before your treatment session, our physician will discuss what to expect during your treatment. However, it is helpful to remember that there are a few things to take into consideration before your session:

  • At least three to four days before your procedure, discontinue anti-inflammatory medications.
  • One to two weeks before your procedure, discontinue any blood-thinning herbs, supplements, or vitamins.
  • One to two weeks before your procedure, discontinue systematic steroids
  • At least one month before your procedure, stop steroid injections
  • On the day of your procedure, eat a full, healthy breakfast and be sure to drink plenty of water
  • Please be advised that if you take chronic oral steroids, a discontinuation plan will need to be discussed with your primary care provider as abrupt stoppage may cause side effects.


After your treatment session, we recommend that all patients rest on the day of their procedure. We advise limited use of the treatment area for the next two days, but the movement is encouraged. Limited use helps the joint recover as the treatment is absorbed by the area’s surrounding tissues.

0 – 3 days post-procedure guidelines

  • After your treatment, there is a chance you’ll experience some mild to moderate pain or discomfort at the treatment site. Discomfort is normal, and it is a sign that your body is healing as it adjusts to the treatment.
  • It is best to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to help promote healing.
  • You mustn’t take ANY medications following your procedure unless specifically directed otherwise by a physician. NO medicine is a must because any drug can affect the healing process or other adverse effects.

Therefore, discontinue use of any of these medications post-procedure for best results:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications for at least two weeks post-procedure
  • Blood-thinning herbs, supplements, or vitamins for 3-4 days post-procedure
  • Systematic steroids for two weeks post-procedure
  • Other important guidelines to follow after your procedure are:
  • Avoid applying ice or heat to the injection site for the first 72 hours post-procedure
  • Don’t take a hot bath or go to a sauna for the first few days post-procedure
  • Avoid consumption of any alcoholic beverages for the first week post-procedure
  • Avoid showering for the first 24 hours following your procedure
  • Limit caffeine consumption for the first week post-procedure
  • Avoid smoking

3 – 14 days post-procedure guidelines

  • At this point in your healing, you should gradually increase your daily activities.
  • 3 to 14 days is also when you can begin exercises. Proper exercise is a vital part of long-term results, and we can help you determine which exercises are best suited for your needs before your procedure.
  • Ice can be applied 3-4 times a day for 15-20 minutes as needed for comfort
  • Anti-inflammatory medications (such as Tylenol) can be taken to help manage any residual pain at this time, take as directed
  • Continue to avoid alcoholic beverages, smoking, or excessive amounts of caffeine

3 – 4 weeks post-procedure guidelines

  • We highly encourage you to begin physical therapy to aid in your long-term healing and continued recovery at this point in your healing.
  • A follow-up appointment will be made for you to meet with our physician to review your healing process. You must keep this follow-up visit even if your recovery is going well.
  • If there are any adjustments to your customized treatment plan, this is when our physician will be able to make those decisions.
