DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System is the original medical grade crystal free treatment that can reduce the effects of aging on your skin. Using the patented DiamondTome™ wand the treatment is a safe, clinically proven therapeutic approach to superior skin care results.
Skin Resurfacing is an exfoliation technique for removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. This microdermabrasion treatment works by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner. Removing this outer layer leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin. Unlike other exfoliation treatments, the DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System uses no loose abrasives to contaminate you or the environment.
Skin Resurfacing also stimulates the vascular circulation to the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Treatments combat the signs of aging and are appropriate for most skin types especially those who are intolerant or sensitive to chemicals. This treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time. To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended for a healthier, younger looking skin. Mature, deeply wrinkled skin types would not benefit from this treatment.
What is MicroExfoliation?
MicroExfoliation is a skin-revitalizing treatment that helps repair skin that is damaged from the sun, scars, acne, and the unwanted effects of aging. A trained professional uses gentle abrasion and vacuum to remove the dead, outer layer of skin.
MicroExfoliation using the original Crystal Free DiamondTome® wands removes the dead, outer layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips while vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a clean and controlled manner.
Removing the outer layer of dead skin leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.
What is the advantage of the Altair MicroExfoliation Systems?
There are different methods of exfoliation systems ranging from particle microdermabrasion to chemical peels. The Altair Instruments Crystal Free Systems achieves skin rejuvenation without the adverse effects of loose particles, burning, or irritation utilizing patented crystal-free technology.
Is it safe?
Yes, MicroExfoliation is a simple, non-invasive procedure performed by a fully trained physician or aesthetician. Using the crystal-free DiamondTome® wands, which are painless and effective, eliminates the risks of traditional microdermabrasion.
How will I look after the treatment?
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but should return to normal in 10 to 30 minutes. Your skin will look and feel smoother even after the first treatment.
How long will it take to see results?
While you may see visible results after the first treatment, lasting and more significant results will occur after 6 to 8 treatments spaced two weeks apart with a maintenance treatment every two to three months.
Will I miss work or need to stay indoors?
MicroExfoliation using any of the Altair Crystal Free Systems can easily be performed on your lunch hour so you can immediately return to your normal activities.
However, it is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for at least a few days after your treatment. A sunscreen is essential to use afterwards since exfoliated skin has temporarily lost some of its natural protection to the environment.
What will I do after the treatment?
Your physician or aesthetician will recommend skin care products to maintain the results of your treatment at home.

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.
