Skin Tightening

Definition

Predictable and virtually pain-free, the Aluma skin renewal system with FACES™ (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation) technology is a revolutionary approach to skin tightening and the treatment of wrinkles. The system features radio frequency technology, which is proven in clinical studies to improve skin texture and laxity, as well as bipolar RF delivery, which precisely controls the volume of tissue heated. Aluma is a gentle, low risk, and virtually pain-free wrinkle removal process that is easily tolerated without anesthesia.

Treatments typically last 15 to 20 minutes. Most patients will need 5 to 6 treatments for maximum results.

The aluma skin renewal system concentrates heat into the deep dermis leading to collagen regeneration giving predictable, effective and painless results. Best of all there is no downtime. Patients are able to return to their normal activity right after the session.

Side Effects

There is no downtime associated with this procedure. You may return to normal activity immediately following the treatment. There may be some redness to the areas treated, which is easily covered with makeup.

Is the Treatment Painful?

This treatment is virtually painless. The sensation felt is similar to a warm vacuum.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Any area that has decreased elasticity may be treated. The most common areas treated are around the eyes, mouth and lips, jowls and neck.

Who Can Be Treated?

Aluma energy is not effected by skin color, tanning or any other characteristic. Anyone wanting to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and achieve smoother skin can be treated.

What Can I Expect?

Aluma treatment is comfortable. A revolutionary technology called FACES (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation) results in energy deposited deep in the skin without affecting the skin's surface and virtually without pain. Skin is gently drawn into the tip of the handpiece. Energy is delivered resulting in a gentle warming of the deeper layers of the skin. A treatment typically takes about 15 minutes.

A series of treatments are recommended for best results. Fine lines improve as new collagen is deposited in the dermis. Although some improvement will be seen within a month to a few months, the skin should continue to improve for several months after treatment as new collagen is deposited.
