Aluma RF is one of the newest technologies for non-laser radio frequency skin tightening systems. Aluma RF, like many other skin tightening methods, heats the tissue beneath facial skin. This heating causes the collagen to tighten, which helps the skin appear tighter and fresher. Aluma RF works best on wrinkles and treatments with Aluma RF are personalized for each patient, using the system’s computerized interface.
What are treatments with Aluma RF like?
Typical treatments with Aluma RF only take about 15 minutes – great to schedule during a lunch break! During treatment, your doctor uses a handheld tool to target areas of your skin. As the device delivers radio frequencies to the targeted areas, skin is drawn into the tip of the device – but don’t worry – most of our patients report little discomfort and no pain.
What is the post-treatment downtime with Aluma RF?
Aluma RF is very gentle and in fact most patients report no pain at all during or after Aluma RF treatments. Because Aluma RF bypasses the epidermis (the outer layer of skin), downtime is generally non-existent; most patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
How long do the results of Aluma RF last?
Aluma RF treatments take time to develop but will last as long as a year and a half.
Can Aluma RF be used in combination with other facial rejuvenation techniques, such as fillers?
In short: yes. Like many other facial rejuvenation treatments, Aluma RF can be used in combination with other techniques to provide the best possible outcome for a patient. In some cases, Aluma RF may not be able to treat areas with fillers, if the fillers are in the superficial layers of the skin. However, your doctor will discuss this with you in detail to make sure you are selecting the combination of treatments that will provide you with the outcomes you seek.
