How DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion Can Improve Your Melasma

If you’re bothered by the discoloration of your face due to melasma, it’s time to consider the benefits of DiamondGlow™ Dermalinfusion. We offer this exfoliation treatment at Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics in Austin, Texas, to improve your skin’s appearance and deeply hydrate the tissues beneath the surface.

Board-certified dermatologist David A. Bushore, MD, specializes in DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion therapy to address melasma and other conditions that affect the skin on the face and body.

Why you have melasma

Melasma causes bluish-gray or brown patches on the skin. This condition isn’t well-understood, but it may be triggered by changes in the melanocytes, which are the skin cells that produce pigment.

These cell changes can stem from exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun, hormone imbalances, excess heat, and the use of certain skin care products. Women are more likely to develop melasma, especially during pregnancy. The condition is so common in pregnant women that it’s often referred to as the “mask of pregnancy.”

Darkened skin patches can develop anywhere, but they tend to affect areas of the face, such as the following:

While the condition isn’t harmful to your health, you may wish to treat it if you’re unhappy with your skin’s appearance or feel self-conscious about the discoloration.

How DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion works on melasma

DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion is an exfoliation treatment that uses an abrasive diamond tip to remove dead skin cells.

A handheld vacuum holds your skin in place while the diamond tip exfoliates flaky, dead skin cells that dull your complexion. This exposes the healthy skin below, so your face appears fresher and more youthful. The exfoliation process can remove hyperpigmented patches of skin that result from melasma.

Unlike other exfoliation procedures, the DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion system also deeply cleans the skin and unclogs your pores.

Board-certified dermatologist David A. Bushore, MD, then infuses your skin with specially formulated serums by SkinMedica® to hydrate the tissues and further minimize the appearance of discoloration and blemishes.

Dr. Bushore can also recommend serums that offer anti-aging benefits to address fine lines and wrinkles.

Great results with minimal downtime

DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion provides results that are noticeable right away. The serums we use also enhance your skin’s overall health by improving it’s:

At your comprehensive skin evaluation, we confirm if DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion is a treatment option for you. Board-certified dermatologist David A. Bushore, MD, can also determine how many exfoliation treatments you’ll need. Typically, patients need a total of 4-6 sessions, which are spaced out every other week.

Your skin may have temporary mild redness and swelling immediately after your treatment. These issues should resolve on their own within a few days. Furthermore, you should be able to go back to work and other activities immediately after your DiamondGlow Dermalinfusion procedure.

If you have melasma, you’ll also need to wear protective sunscreens to prevent the return of discolored skin patches. We can offer recommendations for high-quality sunscreens and other skincare products to help keep your skin looking and feeling great.
