There are a growing variety of different ways to approach exfoliation. For years, the most popular was microdermabrasion. Today, micro-exfoliation is becoming well known – primarily because people are growing tired of harsh chemicals required in some approaches. DiamondTome has proven to be an industry leader in micro-exfoliation due to their break-through technologies.

Why Bother With Micro-Exfoliation?

The external layer of your body is primarily composed of dead skin cells. They protect the other layers of skin from environmental damage. The problem is that they also make your skin look dull and possibly greasy. Micro-exfoliation is a process to eliminate this layer by rubbing it away. There are a number of cloths and creams designed to achieve this. They are largely based on rice bran. Unfortunately, the rice bran can accidentally get stuck in your skin if you aren’t careful or if you don’t completely wash it away.

Another benefit of micro-exfoliation is that it does not require any strong abrasives. Microdermabrasion is still extremely popular; however it relies on abrasives like aluminum oxide. This can cause severe skin irritation and make your skin look red for an extended period of time. It can also become quite painful if not applied correctly.

What Makes DiamondTome Different Than Everyone Else?

The biggest difference DiamondTome provides is an emphasis on eliminating the common drawbacks of other solutions. There are no loose abrasives to contaminate your skin during the micro-exfoliation process. The diamond chips are bonded to the tip of the wand to ensure they don’t break off. At the same time, it utilizes a controlled vacuum to remove the exfoliated skin cells out of the way and off of you face. Combining these two techniques makes DiamondTome one of the safest and most painless exfoliation techniques on the market.

Another benefit of DiamondTome micro-exfoliation is that it can be used in conjunction with other treatments. By removing the superficial layer of skin, your body can more easily absorb other creams and other health-enhancement products. It is gentle, yet powerful, enough to be used on more than just your face. It has been successfully used on the neck, hands, back, legs, feet, elbows, and chest.

DiamondTome Requires Zero Downtime – Making It Perfect for People on the Go

One of the biggest drawbacks to many similar products is that there is some sort of recovery period. DiamondTome is designed specifically for people who want to look their best, but don’t the time to take a day off. It is non-invasive and painless. The best part is there is zero recovery time. You can do all of your normal activities immediately following the procedure. Plus, your skin is completely free of redness and irritation due to the secure diamond chips and controlled vacuuming done during treatment. If your skin does look a little flushed, it will return to normal within 10 to 30 minutes.

When Will You Start Seeing Results?

Everything sounds great so far, but the big question you still want answered is how long it takes to actually see results. In most cases, your skin is visibly healthier after the first treatment. For long lasting results, it is normally best to go through 6 to 8 treatments. Each of these treatments will be about 2 weeks apart. Once those have been completed, it is advisable to get regular maintenance every few months.
