Medical Conditions and Aluma

Aluma is an effective way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It has the ability to provide you with more youthful looking skin. Aluma is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates the collagen-building process, and most patients feel no discomfort during the procedure. Aluma can be combined with other treatments, but your doctor will tell you which ones can be combined. Sometimes the combination of two treatments can give you maximum results that you want to achieve.

There are a few factors to remember when thinking about getting Aluma. There are a few medical conditions that will prevent you from getting this treatment, and you should consult with your doctor before deciding.

Open Wounds

Your skin should be free of any open wounds, or at least the area that is being treated. Because Aluma uses lasers, this can exacerbate the wounds and can put your skin at a high risk of any after effects.


You should be clear of all infections, and your doctor may give you an antibiotic to help with any post treatment infections you may experience.


This treatment has been know to aggravate the recurrence of cancer cells. Check with your doctor if you have had any precancerous cells or malignant cancer.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Aluma is not recommended while you are pregnant. You can receive treatment before pregnancy, but not during. You will need to take a pregnancy test before treatment to confirm that you are not pregnant. This treatment can cause malformations in the fetus, even if the areas being treated are far from the unborn child.

If you are nursing, you cannot have this treatment as the milk can be affected, which can cause harm to your child.
