Altair Instruments has been a leading medical device manufacturer for over 35 years, producing everything from power surgical instruments to cochlear implants. Altair ventured into the skin wellness space when a plastic surgeon inquired about skin exfoliation devices.

The First Crystal-Free Microdermabrasion System

Experts at Altair studied the market and used their decades of expertise to invent an advanced microdermabrasion system that was gentler on the client’s skin, easier to maintain long-term, and much more affordable for practitioners called NewApeel®. NewApeel became the world’s first diamond-tipped microdermabrasion system, pushing the industry to evolve away from crystal.

Good For The Whole Body

Since it came onto the market in 1999, NewApeel has enjoyed unparalleled success. Not only did the diamond-tipped wand allow for greater precision, but the versatility of the system made it possible to resurface every curve of the face and body. What’s more, NewApeel was so gentle that it could be used near the eyes and nose, and on patients with sensitive skin. 

For the first time, Altair made full body exfoliation possible, allowing for skin rejuvenation from head to toe. Altair’s Diamond-tipped exfoliation system is regularly used in world-class medical spas to smoothen and resurface the face, neck, hands, decolletage, back, feet, elbows, and knees, without the harsh side effects of traditional crystal microdermabrasion.

Altair Stands Out

Over the past two decades, Altair’s diamond-tipped technology has become the industry standard for microdermabrasion, expanding what areas practitioners are able to treat, and making microdermabrasion safe for use across skin types.   

In addition to NewApeel, Altair has introduced the DiamondTome® system, Petite System, and the HydroWand® Infusion System, all designed to provide unparalleled skin rejuvenation. Altair products are affordable, effective, and environmentally sustainable, with easy-to-clean systems that can be safely reused for years.
