The science of Aluma
Switching to a healthy skin care regimen a few weeks prior to beginning Aluma gets your complexion into good condition for treatment. We recommend Alastin skin care products pre-procedure, to soothe skin after treatment, and for on-going restoration of collagen and elastin. On the day of your appointment, we cleanse your skin and apply a conductive lotion that aids in efficient delivery of RF energy. The clinician uses a hand piece to suction skin into the device. Your appointment will last about an hour, possibly longer depending on the area treated. There is no need for anesthetic, and no needles, cutting, sutures, or scarring. As RF enters your tissues you may feel a warming sensation, but treatment is virtually painless. There is absolutely no downtime; you may resume normal activities right away. Patients with very sensitive skin may experience minor redness or swelling, which resolves within a few hours.
