Skin Tightening

Wrinkles are the natural consequence of laughing, frowning, too much time in the sun and the slowing down of collagen production; they can make us both look and feel old. The Aluma system with FACES technology works by creating a controlled volume of heated tissue in the dermis (deeper skin layers). Improving on earlier technology, Aluma’s technology is truly a breakthrough approach to treatment.

DermaSmooth is able to offer skin and beauty treatments that are effective and long lasting by embracing the newest and most powerful technologies with the Lumenis Aluma™ Skin Renewal System with FACES™ (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation).

Aluma is a revolutionary new, non-invasive treatment for wrinkles, fine lines and skin laxity. It results in smoother, tighter, firmer and, therefore, more youthful-looking skin. Our Aluma treatment is predictable and comfortable offering a “no downtime” procedure to treat wrinkles and fine lines, as well as tighten skin.

The Benefits of Aluma Treatment

  • Virtually painless
  • Minimal risk
  • No downtime; return to normal activities immediately
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightens the skin
  • Improves aged and sun damaged skin
  • Stimulates new collagen growth within the dermis

The vacuum-assisted and bipolar radio-frequency (RF) handpiece conforms to the skin to allow the energy to safely bypass the epidermis (top layers of the skin) and places the dermis (deeper skin layers) directly in line with the beam of energy. The RF energy is restricted only to the intended target, thus limiting any pain previously associated with skin tightening methods. Energy is deposited deep within the dermis, creating a uniform and contained zone of heating, which results in collagen contraction and renewal with little to no discomfort. In the months following treatment, the body’s natural processes result in the generation of new collagen and dermal remodeling. As new, “younger” structured collagen is laid down, the skin looks tighter, firmer, and more youthful.

Aluma FACES uses radio-frequency energy to provide heat to the dermis of the skin. This method alters the collagen and ultimately tightens the tissue.
