The Aluma Skin Renewal System can be combined with other skin rejuvenating procedures to produce a more youthful looking appearance, by reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Aluma is a non-invasive, non-surgical outpatient procedure. The treatments are about twenty minutes in duration and take place over the course of several weeks. Most patients report they feel no discomfort during the treatments. Using radio frequency to heat the skin below the surface, the collagen in the treatment area is stimulated into contracting. This contraction causes the collagen to rebuild into thicker, firmer strands. The non-invasive Aluma Skin Renewal System is perfect for those who wish to undergo several different procedures simultaneously.
Aluma can be combined with the following treatments:
IPL Intense Pulse Light or Photo Rejuvenation
IPL reduces the visible appearance of age-spots, unusual pigmentation, sun damage and redness associated with aging. Aluma Skin Renewal System treatments combined with IPL can heighten the results of the skin reguvenation program.
In combination with Aluma, BOTOX ® injections can improve facial contouring. BOTOX ® , a purified protein, relaxes the muscles. The appearance of deeper lines and wrinkels can be reduced through the use of BOTOX ® injections. Recent studies may indicate that Aluma treatments may increase the longevity of BOTOX ® . The process of rebuilding the collagen during the Aluma Skin Renewal treatments increases the adherence properties of the BOTOX ® . Injections are usually administered midway through the Aluma treatments. Your dermatologist or skin care professional can advise you on the procedure.
Dermal fillers are used to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Fillers are usually injected midway or toward the end of your Aluma series. Dermal fillers can fill the larger spaces of deep lines and wrinkles. They are very effective when applied to the areas above and below the lips, corners of the mouth, the nasolabial fold around the mouth and the forehead. Dermal fillers can enhance facial contouring, while the Aluma Skin Rejuvenation System improves the tone and texture of the skin. Consult with your skin care professional to find out which fillers are right for you.
A program that combines microdermabrasion with the Aluma Skin Renewal System may improve the overall appearance of your skin. Aluma targets the collagen rebuilding process below the surface, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. Microdermabrasion may lessen the signs of sun damage, small shallow scars, larger pores and blemishes on the surface of the skin. Microdermabrasion works by polishing off the surface layers of the skin, to remove dead and damaged skin cells.
Chemical peels, like microdermabrasion, target the surface layers of the skin. Chemicals are applied to the skin to diminish the visibility of fine lines, blemishes and sun damage. A chemical peel can smooth and brighten the skin. The Aluma Skin Rejuvenation System will improve the tone and texture of the skin from deep within, while the chemical peel will improve the surface layers of the skin.
