What is Aluma?
Aluma is a cosmetic treatment that uses radio frequency technology to treat loose skin and wrinkles. While it is primarily used on areas of the face and neck, the procedure may also be performed on other parts of the body like the abdomen, arms and legs.
This procedure is particularly useful because it can safely be used on the delicate skin around the eyes. Aluma works by going beyond the surface of the skin to effectively treat the lower dermis and promote the production of collagen. The treatment is completely non-invasive, without the need for needles, medication or recovery time. The result is skin that looks and feels tighter and smoother, and will continue to appear so for some time after the treatments are complete.
Am I a candidate for the Aluma treatment?
The ideal candidates for the Aluma procedure are individuals wishing to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and create a firmer, tighter skin appearance. However, due to the nature of this procedure, those seeking a dramatic change to their appearance may not see immediate results with Aluma since the benefits are more gradual in nature.

What does the Aluma treatment feel like and how long does it take?
The entire Aluma treatment process generally takes less than an hour. If a larger area of the skin is targeted for treatment, sessions may last longer.
Because the outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis, remains untouched by radio frequency waves, there is no need for a recovery time after the procedure. All of the work is done below the skin’s surface so that patients may return to normal activities right away. There is also little or no discomfort associated with the procedure, both during treatment and afterward, although some patients report a slight warming sensation as the radio frequency waves go to work.
In some cases, a bit of mild swelling might occur in the treated area, but this is probably due more to the suction process than the radio frequency waves themselves. The lack of a recovery time is one of the biggest draws to the Aluma procedure, because patients can schedule a treatment over a lunch hour and return to work for the afternoon.
What are the risks involved with Aluma?
While there is a degree of risk with any medical procedure, the risks involved with Aluma are minimal and rare.
