For over 20 years, the Altair DiamondTome has retained popularity since being introduced to the market as the very first crystal free skin exfoliation system. The diamond-tipped wand and non-invasive technique has long been a standard in the aesthetic industry, clearing away dirt, debris and dead skin cells to unearth a smoother and clearer complexion. In addition, the patented DiamondTome exfoliation wands are designed to accomplish two goals. First, they improve general skin health for a more rejuvenated appearance. Secondly, they target specific skin condition including sun damage, age spots, fine lines, acne scarring blackheads and whiteheads, oily skin, and hyperpigmentation.
Your skin goes through a lot on a daily basis. After continuously fighting against the sun’s harmful rays, harsh winds, toxins and pollution, eventually your complexion will show signs of the battle. Your body’s natural defenses will begin to break down and your skin will appear dry, rough, damaged and dull.
When one of our patented face and body wands is applied to your skin, the outer layer that has been exposed to and damaged by the elements is gradually removed. After several sessions, that layer is gone and all of the imperfections that exist on it (such as fine lines, shallow acne scars, age spots, etc.) improve.
WHY GO CRYSTAL FREE?
Traditional microdermabrasion treatments use tiny crystals – rather than diamonds – to remove the outer layer of skin. While these treatments were undeniably effective, they also had their drawbacks. For one, the crystals were highly abrasive and created inflammation and heat on the skin. If patients already suffered from inflammation, for example due to rosacea or acne, this approach could actually make their condition worse. In addition, the crystal based method resulted in a bit of downtime, which isn’t ideal for busy men and women who have lives, careers and families to get back to.
Treatment with our diamond tipped face wands are considered “lunch hour” procedures. They take about 25 to 45 minutes, and you will be able to return to work and your normal daily activities right away.
You may appear slightly flushed and red in the treatment area right after your appointment, though these effects should disappear within half an hour. You’ll need to wear sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure for several days to protect your skin, which will be more sensitive and susceptible to damage immediately following this procedure.
In terms of results, many patients see a visible improvement after their very first DiamondTome treatment. However, for longer-lasting and more significant changes, you will probably require about eight sessions spaced a couple of weeks apart, and then maintenance visits every couple of months moving forward.
