Aluma Skin Renewal Review
What is Aluma?
If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to look younger, the Lumenis Aluma offers anti-aging benefits without going under the knife. Aluma is a non-invasive skincare procedure that uses radiofrequencies to counteract the onset of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. The radiofrequencies are transmitted from the surface of the skin to the underlying layers, so there’s no risk for epidermal damage. Aluma is mainly used on the skin, but can be used elsewhere on the body to treat skin that’s lost its elasticity. Aluma is similar to other laser skin rejuvenation proceduresbut has the ability to have a more contained treatment area.
Aluma uses a patented technology called Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation (FACES). During FACES, problem areas are pre-treated with a vacuum. Then, an Aluma handpiece sends radiofrequency waves that go through the epidermis and into the dermis. Unlike other radiofrequency skin treatments, Aluma targets only designated areas of treatment in the skin’s deeper layers, so there’s no discomfort on the surface of the skin. It works by heating the dermis layer of the skin to a controlled level. The radiofrequencies send energy to the skin, which develops a contained area of heat. The heat aids in collagen production and natural skin renewal. Each session costs around $300, depending on your individual practitioner and your geographical location. One session takes about an hour. After an Aluma session, the patient will continue to see anti-aging results as the skin rebuilds itself. Optimal results can be seen in about eight to ten treatments.
Aluma for Eye Treatment
Aluma is particularly popular for use around the eyes. The eyes are one of the first places to show signs of aging, but also one of the most difficult areas to treat. Since it doesn’t use light nor does it damage the outer layers of the skin, Aluma is safe for the delicate area surrounding the eye. It helps combat fine lines, crows feet, puffiness, and even dark circles. Clients of Aluma are fond of the fact that Aluma treats both wrinkles and skin sagginess anywhere on the face.
Aluma Risks and Side Effects
Aluma is FDA-approved and doesn’t carry a lot of risks or side effects. There is little pain associated with Aluma because it doesn’t affect the outer layers of the skin. If you have tried other radiofrequency skin procedures like Thermage or Refirme and found it too painful, Aluma may be a good choice for you. Aluma is different because it restricts the treatment area to only designated spots. Thus, the heat associated with radiofrequencies doesn’t seep into other areas like the fragile epidermis.
After being treated with Aluma, some patients experienced minor swelling and redness that subsided in a few minutes. Aluma requires no downtime, so won’t have to take much time out of your regular work or social schedule. Like all laser skin resurfacing procedures, Aluma is not a permanent treatment for wrinkles or the signs of aging. After the initial treatments, skin may go back to its original state and more sessions will be needed. Aluma helps treat wrinkles and sagging skin, not prevent it.
