The radio frequency based, nonsurgical treatment known as Aluma has a relatively short history in the world of dermatology. This kind of process includes using two electrodes to stimulate below the skin, in a process that Aluma proponents contend will cause collagen to regenerate to support the skin. Aluma uses what its creators call FACES (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation) technology to create conditions for erasing wrinkles.
Uses of Aluma
Aluma is most commonly used to treat patients around the eyes and the mouth. A typical treatment takes about 15 minutes. According to medical sources, recuperation time is short, and patients can generally resume day to day activities after going through the procedure.
History of Aluma
The history of Aluma can perhaps best be viewed through a reading of the website of its creator, the Lumenis company. Internal Lumenis resources show that the global company announced this innovation to the public on October 12, 2005 in a press release sent from Israel. Aluma, according to the statement, was at the time "truly a breakthrough approach to treatment." The Lumenis press release also cited study data that supported the effectiveness of the Aluma procedure.
Additional resources show that the US Food and Drug Administration subsequently approved the use of Aluma for the specified purposes, as use by qualified dermatologist specialists. Patients can get more information by talking to their local dermatologists.
