The patented DiamondTome® wand is the original crystal free device used in all of the Altair Instruments professional grade exfoliation systems. These wands have natural diamonds bonded on the tip of the wand and are specifically designed to glide over every unique curve on the face and body, producing smoother and more flawless skin. DiamondTome® wands are based on crystal free technology which decreases the risk of particle clogging and other potential skin problems.
How DiamondTome® Wands help the skin
Skin conditions are becoming more common among individuals in constant contact with the sun and exposure to pollution and free radicals on a daily basis.
