Diamond Glow vs. Hydrafacial


Spoiler Alert: We prefer DiamondGlow

DiamondGlow is one of the most popular services at Penobscot Medical Aesthetics.  Unlike Hydrafacial, the medical-grade serums used in DiamondGlow treatments reach the dermal-epidermal junction for enhanced results.  DiamondGlow is less well-known than Hydrafacial because it tends to be chosen by physician-directed practices versus day spas and is completely customizable.
