Microdermabrasion:
Skin Resurfacing with DiamondTome

The science of skin rejuvenation is evolving. Altair introduces a Skin Resurfacing System featuring DiamondTome™ wand has polishing action of diamond chips and the cleaning action of a vacuum.

What is Skin Resurfacing?
Resurfacing is a technique for removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The DiamondTome™ Wand removes this layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.

Resurfacing using a DiamondTome™ Wand is similar to particle microdermabrasion and chemical peels in its results but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. Unlike other exfoliation treatments, the DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System uses no loose abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.

The Advantages of DiamondTome ™ Wands.
Resurfacing is a wonderful alternative to laser or chemical peels because it is non-invasive, non-surgical and requires no down time after treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately. Your skin will have a radiant glow, free of irritation and loose particles. Patients experience softer, smoother and cleaner skin after the first treatment. Treatment series vary from four to ten sessions depending on the condition being treated and the type of skin.

Common Concerns

How much discomfort will I experience?
Resurfacing treatments using the DiamondTome™ System are painless yet effective. The degree of effectiveness is controlled by a widely adjustable vacuum in conjunction with the varying coarseness of the DiamondTome™ Wands. Your skin care professional is trained to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment while at the same time ensuring your comfort.

Leading plastic surgeons and dermatologists regard the DiamondTome™ System as being more gentle than other exfoliating systems, even at its highest settings.

How will I look after the treatment?
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but should return to normal in 10-30 minutes. Your skin will look and feel smoother even after the first treatment and will continue to improve with additional treatments.
