Is DiamondTome really Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is defined in the Wikipedia dictionary as: as: A cosmetic treatment in which the face is sprayed with exfoliant crystals to remove dead epidermal cells. Alternatively it is also defined as: a skin-care technique that uses tiny rough grains or a mechanical medium to buff away the surface layer of skin. The appearance of both definitions reveal the evolution of microdermabrasion that has occurred over the past quarter century or so…
Historically microdermabrasion can be traced to a device invented by Drs. Mattioli & Brutto in Italy in1985. The device employed a closed loop vacuum system that used vacuum pressure to extract pure aluminum oxide crystals from a sealed container and propel them through an aperture onto the skin, while simultaneously removing the crystals and resulting exfoliated skin through a second aperture and into a waste canister.
For over a decade this “traditional” form of microdermabrasion remained the standard and microdermabrasion became (and remains) one of the most popular treatments in the aesthetic industry.
In 1998 Engineer Steve Waldron, (Altair Instruments, Inc.) who had already participated in the development and patent of a number of manufacturing techniques and devices involving the precise placement and application of diamond chips for various abrasive functions developed a “crystal free” microdermabrasion system. The device employed the same closed loop vacuum principle applied by Mattioli & Brutto, but replaced the flow of abrasive media with diamond chips fixed to the treatment aperture.
In doing so Waldron’s practitioners were able to accomplish the goal of microdermabrasion (superficial mechanical exfoliation of the stratum corneum) while eliminating many of the complications associated with earlier devices.
- Eliminating the flow of crystals eliminated crystal penetration of the vacuum system increasing system longevity.
- Diamonds are a sharper medium and exfoliate more thoroughly with less irritation
- DiamondTome diamond microdermabrasion requires no clean up of excess crystals and combines more easily with other treatments
- The need to keep buyng crystals was eliminated
- Without a reliance on a steady flow of crystals, the DiamondTome diamond microdermabrasion system performs in a uniform fashion, unaffected by clogs or humidity.
- Crystal residue left embedded in the skin was eliminated
- DiamondTome systems can operate at much lower vacuum levels, making treatment of even sensitive skin possible.
After over a decade in the marketplace DiamondTome became the industry standard for microdermabrasion. Among dermatologists, plastic surgeons and aestheticians the advantages have propelled Diamondtome to become the top selling medical microdermabrasion system in the world. Having been freed from the problems of traditional crystal microdermabrasion, and now able to more confidently perform it, DiamondTome microdermabrasion has held it’s place as one of the top two non-invasive therapies in the aesthetic industry.
The DiamondTome family of skin exfoliation systems are the original, patented crystal free skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion machines. All use the patented DiamondTome wands to perform treatments from superficial exfoliation to medical microdermabrasion. DiamondTome achieves a precision medical level mechanical exfoliation to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and photo-damage, to help reduce acne breakouts, and to improve overall tone, texture and improve skin laxity. THe clean finish of a Diamondtome treatment also enhances the penetration of a variety of skincare products.
The DiamondTome Wand is the only patented crystal free microderm & resurfacing instrument. The precisely sized and shaped diamonds are applied to the face of the surgical stainless steel wand in a proprietary pattern that produces reliable, simple, and reproducible results every time. DiamondTome wands may be sterilized via autoclave.
